Legacy content refers to removed items that were not deleted or otherwise modified from player inventories and are still accessible. Such removed items can still be obtained via trading or player vending. Legacy content should not be confused with seasonal content.

Note that regarding Atomic Shop items or emotes listed as "legacy" on this wiki, this does not necessarily mean they are permanently removed as they have previously appeared on the Atomic Shop. An example of this is the list of emotes which lists many emotes as legacy content, but they have often re-appeared in the Atomic Shop. Additionally, existing legacy items or emotes may re-appear for sale in the Atomic Shop in the future, on a rotating basis.
