Don’t you just love Christmas? Music, food, laughter, goblin screams are stuffed into boxes in a cold dark mine of space. It’s the most magical time of year, especially now that alluring co-op shooter deep rock galaxy launched the annual Yuletide Elf Hunt. It’s time to dress up your dwarves, get a pickaxe, and get back to the job of transporting stones for an oppressive corporation. There’s double XP in there for you.
The event actually consists of two quests, each of which puts you on a series of quests that you can complete for “huge” progress rewards and special Christmas cosmetics. The quests aren’t much different from the regular quests, as far as I can tell, except for the addition of creepy little elves running along the ceiling and walls of the cave. If you can catch one and stuff it into your robot mining cart, you’ll earn double season XP for that mission.
Completing the quest Annual Performance Rewards earns you the “Reindeer Game headgear”, while completing the Goblin Hunt you’ll receive the above goblin outfit, “Chillaxe pickaxe set” ” and a festive paint job for the little robot to join you if you launch your own quest.
The best part might really be all the decorations in the center, which is an unusually large and interactive lobby area where you hang out while your friends mess around with their weapons and similar things. It’s super Christmas now and includes snowballs for you to chuckle at each other. The robot that served you beer is now wearing a little hat, look.
Best to crack, as the event ends on January 5th.
