Similar to Operation Broken Fang, Operation Riptide features a modified battle pass format. The player earns stars for completing weekly missions which they can spend in the Operation Riptide Shop. The shop contains a variety of agents, weapon skins, stickers and graffiti which the player can choose to purchase with their stars. A maximum of 6 stars can be earned per week except for week 1, where a maximum of 10 stars can be obtained. Any additional progress towards missions will be granted as an XP boost. A player can purchase stars though these will not contribute to their Operation Riptide Coin progress.
