The Japanese server of NetEase Games’ Knives Out battle royale game started the collaboration event with the Chainsaw Man anime from January 1 to January 14. Players can compete in exclusive game modes in this crossover and earn coins to pull on an exclusive gacha. Gacha rewards vary from weapon skins, vehicle skins, and new lobby themes!
▍Knives Out JP × Chainsaw Man Collab Costume & Vehicle Banners
The gold-limited gacha banner features weapons/vehicle skins exclusive to the collaboration alongside player costumes for Samurai Sword, Makima, Power, Denji, and Chainsaw Man. The banner also includes character voice packs for Makima and Aki Hayakawa so be sure to take your chances!
Should you not get him 100 pulls deep into the banner, you’ll be able to claim the Samurai Sword character skin via the pity system placed in the banner.
A separate orange-rarity gacha will also be available during the collaboration period, whereupon 50 pulls, you’re guaranteed to get your hands on a vehicle skin for the coupe, that turns the car into the adorable chainsaw devil himself!
▍Exclusive Devil Hunter Game Mode
During the event period, players can tackle the exclusive “Devil Hunting Special Operation” (対悪魔特殊作戦) game mode. Take on special enemies such as the Zombie Devil and Samurai Sword to complete the daily challenge to collect collaboration gacha coins.
Outside of the reward currencies, a rare bloodied-up version of the Public Safety Devil Hunters Bureau Costume can be found here as a secret random drop. A cleaner regular version of the iconic uniform can be claimed much easier via a login bonus during the collaboration.
