The Ghostclip Update

Javelin's not done yet.

She's bringing a brand new event, balance changes, and a whole host of matchmaking tweaks and improvements to the table in this new update.


Javelin's Scandinavian benefactors are creeping out of the shadows with the launch of the 'Ghostclip' event. With their London-based ammo generation tests proving successful, the other Mercs can now get in on the action.

From today until the October 5, bag yourself a slick new look with Limited Edition Ghostclip Loadout Cards.

  • London (BST, UTC+1): 09:00 Thursday, September 21 - 09:00 Thursday, October 5
  • Los Angeles (PDT, UTC-7): 01:00 Thursday, September 21 - 01:00 Thursday, October 5
  • Beijing (CST, UTC+8): 16:00 Thursday, September 21 - 16:00 Thursday, October 5
  • Sydney (AEST, UTC+10):18:00 Thursday, September 21 - 18:00 Thursday, October 5


Limited Edition Ghostclip Loadout Cards can be earned during the course of the event, in any of the three Branded Equipment cases.

These custom testing suits look as cool as the dark, wintery lab they sprang from.

Ghostclip Equipment Cases

These replace standard Equipment Cases for the duration of the event, and give you a 2% chance of scoring a Ghostclip Loadout Card. Get them in drops after playing matches, or buy them with Credits.

Ghostclip Elite Cases

These replace standard Elite Cases in the Store for the duration of the event, and give you a 10% chance of scoring a Ghostclip Loadout Card. Find them in the Store.

Ghostclip Event Cases

These guarantee a Ghostclip Loadout Card, and can only be found inside Elite Case bundles, purchasable in the Store.


Get a glimpse of Ghostclip's additive manufacturing technology with the Specter Trinket, available now in the Store.

The Specter Trinket has a custom inspect animation, and is highlighted in the Obituaries when you make kills.

When the Ghostclip event ends, you'll also be able to find it in the Trinket Store.


Many of you have gotten in touch with us regarding Javelin's effectiveness in battle. We're making many changes across the board, the most significant being a greater indication that she's about to fire. We'll continue to monitor her effectiveness after this update, and will be tuning further if necessary.

  • Increased the Rocket Launcher's charge-up audio

  • Reduced Javelin's Ammo giving rate to 1/3rd of a Magazine per second (from 1 Magazine per second), half that of Ammo Stations

  • Fixed bug where elements of the UI could disappear while searching for a game
  • Fixed bug where Party Leaders could not promote others to the rank of Party Leader

  • Fixed bug where the 'Add Friend' option would be visible on other players in a Party even if they were already friends
  • Fixed bug where the searching dialogue text contained unnecessary information
  • Added gameplay tips to the to the matchmaking screen


  • Quick Open is back! The interface has been updated to better present the Loadout Cards you've obtained

  • Fixed bug where it was very difficult to see the selectable portion of the scroll bars in the News Feed

  • Fixed various player collision issues
  • Fixed bug where lights at the base of the final Objective could disappear at a distance
  • Fixed bug where smoke visible from the first Objective could disappear at a distance
  • Fixed bug where Turtle's Shield could be deployed outside of the playable space
  • Fixed bug where the ceiling of the lowered bridge near the first Objective could kill you


  • Fixed bug where the name of the beached ship reverted from its community-chosen name 'Bullship' to its previous name 'The Unsinkable'


  • Fixed bug where the Dome Redux loading screen would not appear
  • Fixed bug where invisible water would stop bullets near the first objective
  • Fixed bug where foliage near the attacker spawn would block bullets
  • Fixed bug where a vent was not properly attached to a wall in Firearms Front
  • Fixed bug where player collision was missing on a metal awning above Pylon B locked gate

Work together or die alone in the most challenging team-based FPS.

That's where you come in. After all, what’s a little radiation sickness when there’s money to be made?


  • Fast-paced, highly competitive teamplay that takes the shooter back to its purest roots
  • Over 20 distinct Mercenaries, each bursting with their own abilities, attributes and expletives
  • Two game-modes:
    • Objective – Battle through parts of the city, completing objectives to reach the finale before time runs out
    • Stopwatch – Objective mode for competitive types, where teams swap sides mid-match to see who's faster
