Sword & Shield Bundle Details
Sword & Shield seems to be the last bundle of the Beta Revision series. The October 2022 Season Pass (Symbiote Invasion) is not in the game’s files, and is unlikely to return as it technically started during the global release month. So the Sword & Shield bundle is probably the last of its kind, at least for now.
As with other such bundles, it’s less favorable in value than the season pass of the corresponding season and even less favorable than modern season passes. To be exact, any modern Season Pass for $10 gives you 300 Credits, 900 Gold, 7 variants, 3 avatars, 3 titles, 2 card backs, and, most importantly, a new Series 5 card. Also after purchasing a season pass you get access to exclusive missions every week, giving you a cumulative total of about 600 Gold per month.
The Sword & Shield bundle, on the other hand, will only give you 3 variants, 3 avatars and some boosters and importantly, this particular one has no Card Backs! The lack of progress value can be seen as well, this bundle naturally has a Progress Value of 0.1 (8.6%) and won’t give you any resources to get new cards, as it’s solely focused on cosmetics. But judging by the cosmetics alone, this bundle is 4.5 times better than the regular in prices, so if you like 2 or 3 of the variants above, it’s already a good deal overall.
One more small detail – since Nick Fury is a Series 3 card, he will be immediately available to play after purchasing the bundle. And while he can seriously strengthen the Devil Dinosaur archetype at low collection levels, it seems questionable for a new player to buy this bundle just for that purpose, although it can be a nice bonus.
Nick Fury and Agent 13 fit the recent Loki archetype quite well, though they don’t appear as often in the archetype. Otherwise, you can use them in Devil Dinosaur decks, but other than that, there’s not much use for these cards.
Iron Man is a card found in a wide variety of archetypes and strategies. But right now Iron Man has found the best place for himself in Hela Tribunal decks, so if you like that deck, the variant will look pretty good there.
In the end, the Sword & Shield is just a regular three-variant bundle at a good price, but only if you really want to get not just one variant of them, but several. If so, we rate this bundle 3 stars out of 5 and additionally emphasize that for other categories of players who need new cards and progress value there are many other good bundles info on the special page.
