The Bored Ape Yacht Club is back with another exciting NFT collection that promises to take your gaming experience to a whole new level. Yuga Labs, the company behind the popular Ethereum-based Bored Ape NFT collection, has launched its latest offering, HV-MTL. This new collection of 30,000 “Evo 1” Mechs can be obtained through a unique “summoning” process that requires you to burn your Sewer Pass NFTs.
What is HV-MTL?
HV-MTL or Heavy Metal is a collection of Mechs that can be unlocked by burning your Sewer Pass NFTs. These Mechs are described as mechanized companions to your apes, and they are set to grant access to future games and content. The collection comprises 30,000 Mechs, and they are all Evo 1 types that are released from a “Power Source” when you burn your Sewer Pass NFTs.
How to Get HV-MTL?
To get your hands on the HV-MTL NFTs, you will need to burn your Sewer Pass NFTs. This process is known as “summoning.” Once you burn your Sewer Pass NFT, you will receive an Evo 1 Mech. The floor price for HV-MTL NFTs was around $4,445 each on OpenSea on Wednesday, and the collection has already crossed 2,588 ETH on the secondary market, which is approximately $4.3 million.
Dookey Dash Racing Game
In addition to the HV-MTL NFTs, Yuga Labs also introduced the next stage of its Dookey Dash racing game. Dookey Dash is a browser-based “endless runner” game that challenges players to progress through a virtual sewer system, attempting to avoid obstacles while collecting items. Last month, esports star Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson won the inaugural race, which used Sewer Passes as fuel. Now, Sewer Pass NFTs can be transformed into mechanized companions for your apes.
Issues with HV-MTL Metadata
Some collectors experienced issues with the HV-MTL metadata and missing “companion” traits. Yuga Labs acknowledged the issue and stated that they were investigating. In the meantime, they have removed the trait from the collection, and a metadata update will be pushed once the issue is resolved.
Beware of Scammers
With the excitement surrounding the latest Bored Ape-related NFT drop, scammers are also on the rise. Some malicious websites are pretending to be the Bored Ape Yacht Club and circulating links to trap unsuspecting collectors. As always, exercise caution and only transact with trusted sources.
The Bored Ape Yacht Club’s latest offering, HV-MTL, promises to be a game-changer for NFT collectors and gamers alike. The unique “summoning” process that allows you to transform your Sewer Pass NFTs into Mechs is an innovative way to reward loyal collectors. However, as always, exercise caution and only transact with trusted sources. Happy collecting!
