Shield Bubble and Balloons Unvaulted Until May 16

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, Shield Bubbles and Balloons have both been unvaulted for a trial period until May 16.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island in Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and as ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on May 16 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players "fund" the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We'll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
