Okay I see "contender" pop up randomly in game. I am wearing the omerta recon outfit so maybe it has something to do with it?
Not a huge issue but its got me curious as to why.

Thank you.

It is your shield. It is telling you that the bonus on your shield kicked in.

I believe the contender is the one with the: Melee Damage after shield recharges

Oh monkey throwing poop! I was hoping it meant I was in the running for player of the year.

He's a helpful quote from a developer, on perk/equipment triggers.


Hey all, I can confirm what Batman said: the text color on the new triggered-effect popups does NOT have anything to do with effectiveness - it corresponds to the source of the bonus. Here is what the colors should be right now:
Green: uncommon tier Spikes and Stims
Blue: rare tier Spikes and Stims
Yellow: perks
Green: Synergy bonuses
Red: weapon bonuses (including epic rolls & masteries)
Blue: shield bonuses


That seems like a good idea to me. I'll put it on my list for one of the future patches.
