by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Tribes: Ascend is the fast paced free-to-play first-person shooter from Hi-Rez Studio that just launched this past month. A bunch of us at Destructoid have been playing like crazy, including Patrick Hancock. If you haven't touched the game yet you should go read his preview and see what all the excitement is about.

Or, you know, you can just go download it for free! Lucky for you new players, we're giving away the medium Spinfusor weapon for the Soldier class of Tribes: Ascend! It's a great weapon for players just starting off and a boost for any current players who have yet to unlock the weapon.

To get the weapon, login or create a Destructoid account, then head to our distribution page and click the "Get my beta code!" button. Once you've gotten the code, use the in-game menu to select "Extras" then "Redeem Promotion". Enter the code and you got the Spinfusor!

While we're at it, what's your Tribes: Ascend name? Let's play together!
