Reworked Battle Pass: Key Changes
A new Battle Pass "Snowstorm" has gone live and is already available in the game. We have tweaked mechanics as well as balanced the number of points for completing matches, especially in PvP. In this publication, we will tell you about the key changes.
We have removed missions tied to specific game modes, as well as unpopular conditions that you did not like. Now, when you receive any task, you can choose where to complete it - in PvP or in PvE and special operations. The rest of the mechanics remain the same: you will get a new task once a day. It cannot be changed, but can be skipped in case of failure. Check out the list of tasks below.
|TASK||DESCRIPTION||REWARD||BATTLE PASS COST|
|Hunter||Eliminate 1000 enemies. Bonus in PvP: x5||300 Battle Pass Points||45 Kredits|
|The Killer Rabbit||Eliminate 200 enemies while sliding or jumping. Bonus in PvP: x5|
|Crusher||Eliminate two enemies in a row in PvP or three enemies in a row with headshots in PvE 10 times|
|C-c-c-combo!||Eliminate three enemies in a row in PvP or seven enemies in a row in PvE 2 times|
|Good Shot!||Eliminate 500 enemies with headshots. Bonus in PvP: x5|
|A Test For Pros||Eliminate two enemies in a row with headshots in PvP or two enemies in a row in melee combat in PvE 5 times|
|Bomber||Eliminate 50 enemies with explosives. Bonus in PvP: x5|
|Hand-to-hand||Eliminate 50 enemies using melee weapons. Bonus in PvP: x5|
|First Aid||Restore 3000 armor or health points to allies in any game mode|
Battle Pass Levels
As you gain experience in the Battle Pass, you will unlock new levels of progression. Just like in the previous Battle Pass, there are 50 of them. Upon reaching the maximum level, you will unlock prestige levels - there are 20 of them. Previously, to unlock each BP level you needed 750 points, and this amount was fixed at any stage. Now, the number of points will directly depend on the level and gradually increase as you level up; as for prestige levels, the number of points will remain fixed. Thus, you will be able to quickly reach special contracts, since the starting levels will be the fastest to achieve, while the 50th level will be the most difficult to reach.

Battle Pass Points for Matches
The overall approach to scoring for PvP, PvE and Operation Blackwood has been revised. We will take into account not only the team's results in the match (wins, losses and draws), but also the game session duration.
To get the basic reward, you need to spend at least 2 minutes in the match and get at least one kill. The further distribution of points in "Quick Play" and Ranked Matches can be found in the table.
|ENEMIES KILLED||TIME SPENT IN A MATCH, MIN.||WIN, BP POINTS||LOSS OR DRAW, BP POINTS|
|1 or more||2||24||10|
|50 and higher||110||105|
How should you read the table? Let's consider 2 examples.
- You played a 37 minute Ranked Match that ended with a win and made 0 kills. In this case, you will not receive Battle Pass points for this session, since you did not fulfil the condition and did not perform at least one kill.
- You played a 43 minute Ranked Match and made 13 kills. The match ended with a defeat for you. You will receive 85 Battle Pass points while your opponent, who wins the match with a score of 10/2, will get 90 BP points.
It is worth noting that in "Free for All", points are calculated in a different way. In this case, your personal performance (the number of kills made per match) is taken into account. If the condition indicating the required number of kills is not met, the BP points will be calculated according to the table above and will depend on the time in the match.
|ENEMIES KILLED||BATTLE PASS POINTS|
|20 and more||40|
How should I read this table? It's simple. For example, if you make 13 kills in a match, your reward will be 25 Battle Pass points. If the number of kills is more than 20 (for example, 34), the reward will be 40 points.
For PvE missions, the reward system has also been reworked. There is a requirement to spend at least 2 minutes in a match. In addition, the mission must end with a victory, otherwise the points will not be granted. The reward for mission completion changes depending on its difficulty.
|DIFFICULTY||TIME SPENT IN A MATCH, MIN.||BATTLE PASS POINTS|
|Easy||16 and more||25|
|Normal||18 and more||30|
|Hard||25 and more||40|
Example: if you spend 3 minutes in a PvE mission of the Hard difficulty (you joined it shortly before the last checkpoint), your reward will be 30 points, and if you played from the very beginning and completed the Hard mission in 13 minutes, you will receive 35 Battle Pass points.
The amount of experience will depend on the time spent in the mission. Prerequisite: correctly completed session ended with a victory.
|TIME SPENT IN A MATCH, MIN.||BATTLE PASS POINTS|
|30 and more||90|
Other Special Operations
The points gain in the rest of the special operations will be calculated according to the old principle - a fixed number of points for full completion. The total number of points will depend on the type of the special operation and its difficulty. This is due to the fact that the time for finishing special operations is more predictable and is more or less the same for every completion. Therefore, there is no need for more a precise configuration of specific time stages. However, in the future, if the need arises, the approach to special operations may be revised.
|SPECIAL OPERATION TYPE||BATTLE PASS POINTS|
|Mars and Black Shark (Easy)||100|
|Mars and Black Shark (Normal)||150|
|Mars and Black Shark (Hard)||250|
|Hydra (partial completion)||from 20 to 120 depending on the number of completed stages|
|Hydra (full completion)||200|
|Swarm (partial completion)||from 5 to 40 depending on the number of completed stages|
|Swarm (full completion)||200|
|Other Special Operations on Easy||80|
|Other Special Operations on Normal||120|
|Other Special Operations on Hard||200|
- The total duration of the Battle Pass will be increased compared to the previous one. We will inform you about the exact dates later.
- There are more rewards in the free version of the Battle Pass. We have also added tokens that you can spend in the seasonal BP shop to try out new guns.
- Now, only premium BP access holders and upon reaching level 50 or higher can make purchases for Kredits in the seasonal BP shop, while purchases with tokens are always available (it remains unchanged).
Tweaks to Items
- In the future, the specs of the Battle Pass items (including those from the seasonal shop) may change if necessary when adjusting the game balance.
See you in game!
