Black Market Run contracts aren't as complicated as they seem. In Fortune's Keep, players can find Black Market Run contracts. They can reward the squad with unique weapons and perks.

This was a feature introduced alongside the newest Ricochet feature which automatically disarms players suspected of cheating, and the devs hope that this will further mitigate the number of cheaters that players run into on Caldera, Rebirth, Fortune's Keep and in multiplayer.

 Will it be enough to stop cheaters? Probably not, but it's a step in the right direction.

How do Black Market Run Contracts Work?

After you pick up a contract, a random buy station will be designated on your map. Only one squad member needs to make it to the station before the clock runs out. Once you do, you'll have access to a random assortment of loot.

So far here are the bonuses.

  • Sequencer Grenade
  • Nebula V Minigun
  • Foresight
  • Specialist Bonus
  • Various Classified Weapons

You'll have a chance to test out this new mechanic once Season 4 launches on June 22.
