In the new special operation, you’ll have to pull off a full-blown bank robbery and destroy data that mustn’t fall into the hands of General Lee Wharton. A mission like this can only be handled by the most experienced mercenaries, which you will become at the request of Blackwood. "Heist" is a mission for two partners, who with the help of new cable mechanics, will move along the bank building, open three storage facilities with increasing levels of difficulty, while simultaneously fighting the police and special forces and, of course, immerse themselves in the atmosphere of a dynamic action-packed thriller. It's worth noting that the SED isn’t available in the new mission, this is due to the plot line depicted in the comics before the start of "Heist". The success of the mission will depend solely on your efforts and teamwork skills.
The finale of the story holds an unexpected plot twist and a reward system similar to the one used in "Swarm": a box with cards for the overall mission progress and its special version with even more cards for completing the operation as quick as possible. Using the awarded crafting cards, you can craft weapons from the new "The Big Score" series and the sniper rifle M4 Marksman Custom.
The model is a semi-automatic weapon that is capable of destroying the enemy with two impacts at any distance. It favourably compares to its closest competitors (the rifles H&K G28 and Cobalt Kinetics Twenty-Seven) thanks to an increased damage and better rate of fire offset by a less spacious magazine and more modest ammo. The arm comes equipped with 5 unique attachments: a flame suppressor, two handles, a collimator sight and a regular sight.

The looks of the models will remind you about the success of the mission - just look at the weapon frames and enjoy the detailed cutscene with the opening of the vault. In addition, the guns have gold inlays, which symbolize the bank's wealth and will appeal to those who like to shoot from eye-catching weapons. It has 6 main models: SAI GRY LMG, Winchester 1887, LWRC SMG-45, Bushmaster BA50, M4 Marksman Custom и M134-GAU19b Hybrid.
The battle on the new map for "Blitz" mode will unfold in locations inspired by the namesake Special Operation "Heist". The main field of battle is an elite bank located in a skyscraper. The rules remain the same: you have to find and defuse a bomb. However, the task is not as easy as it might seem - the enemies will do their best to derail the mission and detonate the charge.
You will be able to think through the tactics taking into account three main plans of action: launch an attack moving along the corridors of the bank; occupy a higher vantage point on the second floor gaining more opportunities to track the enemy's movements, but find yourselves in a more vulnerable position; or combine both approaches and deliver a blitzkrieg attack on all fronts.
We’ve updated the appearance of the Safe House. Now it's designed in the style of the special operation "Heist", with several training rooms, a large central hall and a technical corridor. The guards of the bank, which you will have to rob during the new special operation, are training in the Safe House. It is decorated with themed elements and looks pretty realistic. "Parkour" training is also updated. The location got new easter eggs, which reveal new details of the plot. Will you be able to find all of them?

A modified version of the semi-automatic rifle Saiga designed for the US market. The Kalashnikov USA Komrad 12 is an automatic shotgun boasting excellent specs. It favourably compares to its main competitors Uzkon UNG-12 and Typhoon F12 thanks to increased damage, great firing range and impressive hip fire accuracy, which are offset by an average rate of fire and modest ammo which will be still enough to deal with opponents. The arm comes equipped with 4 unique attachments: flame suppressor, a reflex sight and two handles. This weapon is one of the main rewards of the Battle Pass "Heist".

"Shapeshifter" gear is equipment for hired robbers. It is essential for them to have good protection from bullets in shootouts with the police.
The new outfits aim to create healthy competition for the existing armour (for example, the Blackwood set) and to diversify the options for possible equipment. This is achieved due to the balance of the "Shapeshifter" specs in comparison with other sets. Thus, the new gear has the best direct armour protection (more armour points for vests, and more damage absorption points for every shot); however, it is less appealing in all other respects since it features lower movement speed values, reduced number of secondary bonuses (for example, bonuses to recoil, spread and reload), and moderate health restoration, as well as a complete lack of armour replenishment.
With the new armour, Riflemen will have more opportunities to conduct effective firefight - to survive longer and gain precious seconds to complete the battle in their favour due to enhanced direct armour, the values of which are higher than those of other class-specific vests. This will add value to the Rifleman and make it a truly versatile class on the battlefield.
So, if you need good additional bonuses, movement speed, regeneration of health points and armour, as well as high, but not the best protection, the Blackwood set will do. While the "Shapeshifter" set will be an excellent pick that will provide the best efficiency in direct firefights due to its really strong armour and the highest damage absorption. This boost will increase the chances of survival - you will have more time to deal with the enemy.

The "Shapeshifter" skins are the outfit of robbers who hide their identities with frightening masks. They instill fear in any opponent and are available in 4 class-specific versions: the mask of a wolf, a bull, a monkey or a raven. The exclusive "Shapeshifter" appearances offer a unique boost - they increase the overall sprint distance by 60%.

Technical problems with "freezes" have the utmost priority in our work. We direct a lot of resources to investigate the situation and find a solution. In the proccess of analyzing the problem, we found several reasons that might affect the appearance of "freezes". In this update, we have prepared a solution for part of the cases and have already implimented it into the game client. The rest of the changes are work in progress - we’ll tell you more about them in the future.
Please assess these changes and share your feedback in the comments - this will help us in the next stages of solving the issue. We’re continuing to investigate the situation, studying feedback and technical data. We will also be gradually implementing new solutions that can solve problems with "freezes".
You may be familiar with this situation: there is an active shootout, you make a shot, you see blood on the opponent, but the game does not count the damage and in the next frame you’re dead. This is confusing - there was blood, but the damage was not counted. Why? The truth is that the mechanics are not perfect - the game client processes the information independently and compares it to the server, which leads to these misunderstandings. We want to improve the mechanics in this update. Below we explain how this used to happen before we implemented the changes.
Now, the server will be responsible for the permission to draw the "bloody" effect upon impact like it happens with the "damage cross". In other words, "blood" and "damage cross" now reflect the actual fact of inflicting damage, validated by the server, and not the speculation of the game client before the server checks the shot.
In addition, we have improved the "bloody" effect for shotguns. Now every pellet will have its own effect - blood drops. In this way, you will be able to better understand which part of the pellets hit the enemy, and which missed the target. If all the pellets hit the enemy, the effect will be most obvious - there will be lots of blood, and if some of them missed the objective, each pellet will cause separate blood splashes.
Now the player can create and save up to three equipment sets (weapons, camos, skins, gear, additional ammunition, and weapon charms). There are special tabs in the Inventory. By switching between them, you will open the saved sets. The choice and configuration of equipment is no different from the usual actions.
We've made a few minor tweaks to make the in-game chat more comfortable.
