I have crafted a yellow 'High end' quality item and the random bonus I got was 'Rewards from Accolades are tripled'.

Pictre of Tactical pads

So what is an Accolade, and how do I earn one to get triple of whatever the reward might be.


According to a gamefaqs thread, Accolades are the orange badges that pop up when you complete certain tasks, like reviving, headshots, multikills,... these usually reward XP, so for a max level reward, this bonus is somewhat lost. However, there is speculation that this also applies to Darkzone XP.

    Urgh, typical! I guess I'll have to craft it again and hope for a better bonus. Not a great start for my first high-end gear piece. – David Yell Mar 21 '16 at 9:27

    Additionally there is a perk from the Security Wing called Combat Veteran which gives you a 25% boost to accolades. – dougajmcdonald Apr 6 '16 at 12:16
  • Even crazier, @dougajmcdonald, that Perk is from the Barracks, the most expensive upgrade. – Jürgen A. Erhard Apr 29 '16 at 7:39

who cares about speculation when testing take 30 seconds?

That gear piece, according to my test, doesn't triple dz xp.

With = 175xp

Without = 175xp.

but test yourself! dam bug game, shoved out whilst people wait for BF.
