    To clarify regarding Siege Spin: The campaign does not leave much to chance in practice, to ensure that players don't get mismatched prizes should they not already own the alternative.

    You have a 100% chance of getting the Eradicator, its weapon, and its special if you do not own them. If you do own one or more of them, then in the chest at that level you will get the equivalent Shrike component. If, for example you owned the Eradicator, but not its weapon and special, then in the first chest you would get the Shrike, then the Eradicator Weapon, then the Eradicator Special. There is no way you can complete the Campaign, and not end up with the full Eradicator set.
