Sprays & Global Equips

After OB69, Paladins will be moving to a global spray equip system.

We will be removing Champion-specific Mastery Sprays once OB69 goes live, and players will be refunded with the currency they purchased the spray with.

After OB69, players will no longer be able to unlock skin and card art sprays. We will be focusing on making higher quality and more desirable sprays as we get closer to Paladins’ launch. Players will still be able to unlock skin and card art sprays in OB69, and will retain any sprays unlocked in the new global spray equip system!

  • Sprays are becoming Global equips after OB69

Since the system was inactive for the first three weeks of PPL, all players who log in during OB69 will be awarded with 3,000 VIP points.
