Limited Time Outfits
Amid the awesome new outfits in Update 17 (including the return of the Sand Shark Hoodie) are two special items with limited availability.

The Trumbull 4×4 is available now from the bounty broker. This midsize pickup is designed for off-roading, with increased ground clearance and more suspension travel. You are going to have so much fun in this thing. Trust us.
A Note on Retired Content Packs
As you’ve likely noticed, we’ve started retiring older content packs to make room for the new content. Already this year we’ve retired the World War 2 Pack, the Fearsome Footage Pack, and the Go Bag Pack.
This month the Critical Response Pack is joining the list of retired content, and in June we’ll retire the Trumbull Valley Pack to make room for another exciting set of new items.
When a content pack is retired, you keep anything you already own. However, you can’t acquire more items from retired packs, nor can you continue making progress on bounties from those packs.
If you don’t manage to complete all the bounties from a pack before it’s retired, don’t fret! In a world where corpses walk, nothing stays dead for long …
