PsyOps 2020 Support FAQ

A support article for the event is up on Riot's support site, including information on availablilty, event pass & bundles,  missions (both general and pass exclusive), & more:
"To dismantle the machinations of the Black Rose Group and other rogue forces, High Command has set their sights on harnessing power beyond imagination. Enter PsyOps. Psychically gifted and physically unmatched, this elite team is trained to seek out threats and eliminate them. 
High Command is looking for recruits from September 3rd, 2020 at 1:00 PM (PDT) until September 30th, 2020 at 11:59 PM (PDT). Though you'll need to make your retreat by the event's end on the 30th, you’ll still be able to use your hard-earned tokens until October 20th, 2020 at 11:59 PM (PDT)
Innovation and evolution are the keys to PsyOps’ strength, so keep an eye out for changes coming in patch 10.19. Please note that you may see some dates in relation to this event are off. These dates will be corrected alongside patch 10.19 as well. 
PsyOps Pass & Pass Bundle 
We wouldn't want you heading into the field unprepared, so we're giving you two passes to strike down your enemies… in style. The PsyOps Pass can be purchased for 1650 RP, and it comes with 200 PsyOps Tokens and 4 PsyOps Orbs. 
We're also offering a PsyOps Pass Bundle for 2650 RP. Aside from all the items mentioned above, this Bundle also includes PsyOps Ezreal. The Prodigal Explorer will be suiting up to show off, complete with a special icon and border. 
You can purchase both the Event Pass and the Bundle until the event ends on September 30th, 2020 at 11:59 PM (PDT)
Before you head off to take out the bad guys, remember there's no tricking the system (psychic powers or not). Buying a Pass doesn't mean you get extra tokens and orbs even if you buy the Bundle! 
As a member of the elite PsyOps unit, missions are a way of life. Lucky for you, you'll have access to a variety of them, both with the PsyOps Pass and without, so there's no shortage of telekinetic tasks for you to complete. 
These missions become accessible with the PsyOps Pass. Remember, you'll need to complete each Milestone before moving onto the next!
Wondering how to score points towards your Weekly Wins? Every time you win in Summoner's Rift, ARAM, One for All, or TFT (placing in the top 4), you'll earn 5 points. Don't worry, though! Even if you're on the losing team (or if you've placed 8-5 in TFT), you'll still earn 2 points, so really it's a win-win! 
As this event is shorter than normal, be on the lookout for an extra weekly mission during Week 4 that will grant an extra 150 tokens. 
Orb missions are unlike the other PsyOps missions in that they aren't linked together. Simply play 30 matchmade games and reap the sweet rewards.

Riot Xenogenic added:
[1] "Sorry folks, the article is missing quite a few of the missions. 300 tokens are available from free missions, as per usual.  
Also as a heads up: because the event had to be shortened by 5 days, an additional mission will become available to passowners that grants 150 tokens."
[2] "Total token budget for PsyOps:
-300 from free missions
-200 from buying the event pass
-1000 from Wins of the Week
-150 extra from a mission closer to the end because we had to shorten the event 5 days
Therefore, total from missions: 1650"

New Skins

The first set of new PsyOps skins are now available, including a prestige edition of PsyOps Ezreal!

PsyOps Ezreal

[1350 RP]

"A young hotshot and the newest recruit in the elite PsyOps unit, Ezreal's raw psychic ability is only matched by his severely over-inflated ego. He has successfully annoyed the rest of his team to the point they just direct him towards hard targets and half-hope he winds up dead."

PsyOps Ezreal Prestige Edition

[2000 Event Tokens]

"Ezreal's mastery of psychic military combat has driven him to new heights, attracting the attention of his handlers in High Command. He's calmed down a bit, earning some respect from his squad mates... but not enough. He's never calmed down enough."

PsyOps Master Yi

[1350 RP]

"A legendary psychic swordsman and elite leader of the PsyOps unit. Yi is calm, professional, and always gets the job done, making him a terrifying bogeyman among rogue militaries, and a target for those harboring resentment towards the global war machine."

PsyOps Shen

[1350 RP]

"A psychic soldier and field lieutenant within PsyOps, Shen's power is connected to a phantom child that follows him wherever he goes -- granting him insight into the middens between the living and the dead. Where the girl came from only High Command knows, and they aren't talking."*

PsyOps Sona

[1820 RP / Legendary]
 [Sona unbinds herself on taking her R, she keeps this form the rest of the game!]

As a Legendary skin, PsyOps Sona has a new voiceover!

PsyOps Vi

[1350 RP]

"A hand-to-hand combat specialist trained in psychically enhancing her blows with her mind, Vi takes care of "hard targets" for the rest of the PsyOps crew... generally by rushing ahead and punching them apart. She will fight anything and everything, including the old bipedal winter mechs from the Arctic Ops event 40 years prior."

While not specifically part of the PsyOps Event & theme, Hextech Ziggs is also available now!

Hextech Ziggs

[10 Gemstones]
"Famed inventor of Tocker, Ziggs is a savant to some, to others a maniac. All can agree that no matter the consequences, Ziggs seems to enjoy his experiments... especially the subsequent explosions. What is perhaps most miraculous of all is how he and Tocker have survived so many blasts over the years."


New chromas for the PsyOps skins are now available for 290 RP each or bundled with the exclusive Ruby Chroma:

PsyOps Master Yi
[8 Chromas]

PsyOps Sona
