Year passes are gone, with operator unlocks being rolled into buying the Premium Battle Pass if you don’t want to wait two weeks. There’s also no more discounts for pass holders.

There are two tracks to the Crimson Heist battle pass. The free track is just that — free. It comes with limited rewards, but you can still get some good headgears and uniforms.

The premium battle pass is where the value is at. For 1200 R6 Credits, you can unlock Flores early and get access to over 100 tiers of rewards. If you’re going to grind out Operation Crimson Heist, you’ll want to buy the battle pass.
