The next ARMS Party Crash — titled “Shake the Rust Off — has been announced, pitting steel-studded fighters Mechanica and Byte & Barq against each other.

Party Crash is a semi-regular event that takes over ARMS’s Party Match mode for several days and provides fast-paced fights with different rules (Bonus Events) that change on five to 10-minute intervals.

Players are also given a “Lab Level” rank, which increases with each match played, with extra points given during Bonus Events or if featured characters (in this case, Mechanica and Byte & Barq) are used.

At the end of the Party Crash, badges will be given out based on the Lab Level players have achieved, with a limited edition badge carrying the likeness of the featured character they used most given at level 5, and a shiny variant at level 10.

Badges with randomized designs will be given out at levels 15, 20, 25, and 30 — including limited edition badges from previous Party Crashes.

The full schedule of Bonus Events can be found by booting up ARMS and selecting the Party Crash banner in the game’s main menu.

“Shake the Rust Off” will take place starting Friday, March 2nd at 1 a.m. PST and will last until Monday, March 5th at 1 a.m. PST.
