Stay on track this semester with brand new back-to-school gear and an A-grade worthy

arsenal! With the latest Varsity Volts update, players will have their pick of Varsity clubs to join and sitting on the sidelines is not allowed!  Join the ranks as the top tennis players in Naomi’s “Polnud” tennis parts or dig, spike and set your way around the battlefield in Pandora’s “HomeTeam” Volleyball apparel. Players can also climb the ranks of battlefield popularity as a top-notch soccer player in Knox’s soccer uniform!  Players shouldn’t fret if organized sports aren’t their thing … they can create anarchy in Knox’s new Biker gear as part of the alternative clique!

A whole new arsenal of weapons has been added in game as well.  Enemies will surely be schooled by the “Red” and “Green Drawing Pencil” melees as well as the new “Wells Fargo” shotgun!  Players should be on the lookout for smash-worthy rackets, volleyball grenade launchers and so much more!

Furthermore, players should note that each week three different Capsule Machines are 50% off.  Win exclusive weapons and parts with just half the Rock Tokens!
