When a new game mode is introduced, there is a one-time Loot Box rewarded for playing and winning it.

There is a weekly reward system where players can earn a maximum of three Loot Boxes per week: one box per every three games won out of nine games total. The system resets at the same time every week, Mondays 7 PM EST.
