Events are special competitions in the game that allow you to earn special rewards by fulfilling the event's requirements.
You can see if an event is currently available by checking your base view and searching for the event icon (a small star above the Community button).
There are currently three types of live events:
- Zombie Slaughter: will have you kill as many zombies as possible
- Wasteland Scavenger: will drive you to loot as much as you can
- Arms Race Event: will have you rushing to improve your weapon inventory
As soon as an event is available, you will automatically join and be able to participate in it.
You can see what the current events' specific objectives are and how far you've progressed by tapping on the Objectives icon on your main base view and going to the Events tab.
