In past seasons, the developers offered various sprays, back bling, loading screens and emotes. The same applies to FNCS Chapter 2 - Season 5, but these cosmetics are a bit different.

“The Chapter 2 Season 5 FNCS is about to start and we’ve got more ways to watch the competition this season than ever before. This season we are altering our broadcast to focus on the pivotal stages of competition throughout the FNCS and providing additional support for other languages.
Our broadcast this season will feature our already covered regions of EU, NAE and Brasil, but now we’re adding NAW back to the schedule. Additionally, our friends at the Australian Open will provide an OCE broadcast. Finally, we are also adding German, Spanish and French broadcasts for the EU region.”
