Alongside a new champion being revealed in the world of Paladins, Fernando is also getting a new set of cosmetic items which is none other than a mech suit called the “FN-01”. Check out the latest item to arrive here.

It should be noted that the FN-01 suit cannot be directly purchased and is locked behind a new chest that will also contain pieces of the following sets: Triggerman Buck, Star Slayer Ruckus, Night Bane Cassie. Additionally, according to the PTS for the patch that went live, it seems that each chest roll will be 200 crystals.

As per every patch for Paladins there’s a new round of character balancing which sees the struggling Fernando see a slight buff and a nerf to how quickly Drogoz can fill his ultimate meter. To read the changes in it’s entirety feel free to read them here.

Paladins is currently available on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
