Heads up! You can now deal with opponents by dropping heavy things on them. With the power of the Rift, summon anchors, cars, and more to fall from the sky.
They say you are what you consume, but these consumables don’t even know what they are. A Rift Beacon has exploded, creating forageable items that keep turning into other forageable items — they’re glitched!
