World's Edge is receiving an After Dark makeover with Harbingers, adding a scary twist to the fan favourite map.

A new LTM is coming to the Outlands with the Harbingers Collection Event and its called Living Shell Trios. The mode introduces the Rev Shell, a new ordinance that acts as a target seeking grenade that will hunt your targets, simply toss it in the air.

But beware, opponents can take it down early with their weapons, so finding the right time to use it will be difficult.
