Paragon Update v39.2 Brings Long Awaited Gadget Skin, Loot Crate Update and More

The latest update to Paragon is bringing a long awaited skin for Gadget, loot crate updates and more.

Epic Games have released the patch notes for Paragon Update v39.2, which is scheduled to release on April 18, 2017. The new update doesn’t bring a whole lot of changes, but it does bring with it a new Gadget skin that fans have been waiting on for quite some time now. In addition to the new skin, XP and Reputation boost rewards have been removed from Loot Crates. This is good news for those of us who have months of banked XP and Rep boosts stored.

A few months ago during an open beta event, Epic Games gave fans a choice between two Gadget skins that they wanted to see in the game. The fans spoke and decided on the ‘Shellshock’ skin, which can be seen below. Epic Games have made good on their promise and are finally bringing the skin alongside the update v39.2 release on April 18, 2017.
