Update - 17.05.2023
During the update installation, all game settings got reset to default: you might have the voice chat disabled and the video quality set to “High”. Please, check your settings and set them to your preferred parameters. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
An Update has been installed on the game servers. Waiting for you are the dangerously cool "Outlaws" event, in which you’ll be playing in the "Domination" mode, thematic novelties, including a new arm in the medics’ arsenal — the Kalashnikov USA KHAOS, improved versions of the older Cobalt Kinetics guns and their golden versions, some reworked interface elements, and a bunch of bug fixes.
The in-game event "Outlaws"
The Outlaws event is live! Play in the "Domination" mode, complete special operations "Black Shark", "Blackout", and "Pripyat", and the "Retaliation" PvE mission. The system is the same as in the previous events: play the event mode and earn extra currency in PvE to spend in the event shop.
In the PvP mode, you’ll be playing in the "Domination" mode on the "Sirius" and "Armageddon" maps. In order to win, you’ll need to capture and hold more bases than the opponent. The maps’ visuals have remained unchanged, they’re still the classic old locations you are used to.
To start playing, simply start a match from the event interface. The map will be chosen randomly, and you can play in groups of up to 8 pack members. The currency is credited for every PvP match in the event mode, its amount will depend on your personal efforts, as well as your team’s results.
In PvE you’ll be able to earn currency:
- by completing the "Black Shark", "Blackout" and "Pripyat" special operations (all difficulties);
- by completing the "Retaliation" mission.
You can invite up to 2 people to play with, both in Quickplay and in Custom Rooms. For completing the event missions, you will get both the event currency and Crowns.
The "Retaliation" mission is also back in rotation. You'll be able to access it from the event interface. In this mission, you'll be fighting on the side of Blackwood. The goal is to search through the enemy logistics base and find out, what kind of secrets the foe is hiding. The gameplay is diverse: you'll meet security stuff of different difficulty levels, turrets, claymores, electrical traps, and the final boss — a helicopter. Furthermore, you can complete mission's stages (the terminal activation) in three different ways: a difficult but fast one, one of medium difficulty and length, and an easy but time-consuming one. The choice will depend on the amount of terminals you're ready to simultaneously activate.
Currency gain and rewards
The matches in those modes are your main and stable source of currency, but if you need more, you can always complete the event contracts. You have 7 contracts in total: 2 daily ones (one for PvP and one for PvE) and 5 one-timers (for dealing damage and eliminating enemies). Similar to Crowns, the event currency is calculated both from the overall mission score, and the completion time, but not more than once a day.
In the shop line-up, you’ll find the weapon and camo series "Cavalry" (AK Alpha, Typhoon F12, Sentry 12, Kriss Super V Custom, CDX-MC Kraken, and Kel-Tec RDB-C) and the "Highwayman" weapon series. In the showcase, you’ll find lucrative deals with a price reduction of up to 40% on parts and models from the previously released series. This time, the event showcase doesn't guarantee free prizses in the first slot, nor a reward for a chain of openings.
Kalashnikov USA KHAOS
The Medic’s arsenal has a new addition in the form of a semi-automatic version of a 12-caliber shotgun. The weapon uses a gas-operation system similar to that of some legendary Kalashnikov models. In the game, the arm is aimed to better the medics’ weapon ergonomics by increasing the rate of fire, as well as the weapon changing and reloading speeds, compared to the nearest competitors.
The characteristics of the Kalashnikov USA KHAOS can be adjusted with mods. With a unique "Jury-Rigged" mod you can switch the weapon’s firing mode into bursts-of-2, increase accuracy, yet decrease its damage and range. The other unique mod—"Trick Shot"—significantly increases the gun’s accuracy in jumping and adds extra movement speed.
The model is available in gold as well, it offers better damage and fire rate.
- The "Myth" series got two new additional models: Kalashnikov USA KHAOS and Cobalt Kinetics Stealth Pistol.
Improvements of Old Weapon Models
The modification system has been expanded with the addition of some older models. Among those are Cobalt Kinetics Stealth Pistol and Cobalt Kinetics Twenty-Seven that you can now modify with mods. Furthermore, they’ve received a solid increase in their base characteristics.
Cobalt Kinetics Stealth Pistol
The weapon’s recoil has been tweaked, its damage and damage multipliers to the head and torso have been increased. On top of that, its fire rate and range have been improved, and the damage reduction by distance reduced. There’s also a golden version that differs from the regular one not only in its gorgeous appearance but also better rate of fire and range.
The model supports two unique mods. The first one offers a boost to the fire range, damage, and torso damage multipliers. The second one increases fire rate, reduces recoil, and significantly boosts head damage multipliers.
Cobalt Kinetics Twenty-Seven
The recoil has been changed, and the damage multipliers to the body and extremities have been increased for this model. There’s now also a golden model that boasts a more spacious magazine and a higher rate of fire.
The first of its two available mods, "Double Tap", allows switching the Cobalt Kinetics Twenty-Seven’s firing mode into burst-of-2 by lowering its fire rate and aiming speed, but increasing the base damage. The "Illegal Rejiggering" mod changes the firing mode into an automatic one, and decreases the damage and range. Both mods reduce the model’s recoil.
"Inbox" and "Boosters" Sections
The main menu interface has been changed, and new sections have been added. Now they look more modern and concise, and the players will have a better understanding, what’s going on in there.
- All the messages in the inbox are now divided into categories. The message’s icon will now show what kind of notification you’ve received (for example, a weapon’s expiration, an item received, an invitation to a clan).
- A hotkey to quickly clear all notifications has been added — R.
- Now, by clicking on any booster will open an additional pop-up window with full information about the selected booster: what it does and how many you have in stock.
- In this pop-up window, you’ll find a button to go into the "Boosters" section in the store.
- The "Settings" button has been moved to the lower right corner of the interface (next to the currencies).
- The "Exit" button has been moved to the lower left corner of the interface
- The exit confirmation window retained its usual design.

In the event, the players will get event currency and Crowns for completing the missions. However, the notification will only show information about the event currency — the Crowns will automatically be credited to your Crown funds.
Rev up those engines and rush into battle! See you in the game!
