1.5.3 - Halloween and Daily Missions



Hi, soldiers!
The Halloween update is here and with its arrival, you can expect all new content and a new feature that delivers awesome new and exciting challenges to overcome.


New Pumpkin Skins
We are introducing a new crate overflowing with Halloween-themed treats including elite skins, and the “Legendary” Pumpkin Knife. Collecting six of these Pumpkin skins will grant you the amazing Pumpkin Head accessory.

Party!
While we’re talking Halloween, matches are going to have something special going on the 30th and 31st of October. Play on these dates to find out!

Daily Missions
The next time you enter the game, you will see the first of your daily missions on the right-hand side. These missions will feature challenges for you to complete such as, “Eliminate 10 opponents” or “Win 3 King of the Hill matches” there are currently 90+ different missions covering a range of key elements with plenty of variety. There are 3 mission difficulties easy, medium and hard. Whenever you complete these missions you will receive a reward of either 2, 3 or 4 scrap(s), that you can redeem for crates.

You will receive a new mission every day and can have up to a maximum of three active at any given time. You will need to ensure to complete your missions in a timely fashion as when you have three active missions, the oldest one will be replaced when a new mission arrives.

We expect Daily Missions to make the game more fun and diverse, and if you like it we may expand it in the future with cool new stuff. Take note: Daily missions are only able to be completed on the Official servers and through “Play Now” in the main menu.

In addition to daily missions, you will also receive special missions, the first of which will be appearing in the next few days. These Special Missions will reward you with a Mission Crate. Currently, the crates awarded will be the Halloween skin crates: with guaranteed Elite or “Legendary” loot! Your first Special Mission will be appearing very soon, and the next ones will be further down the line.

Increased Cooldown for Crates
Along with the new daily missions, we’re changing the drop rate of crates from 48h to 72h. While you’re still able to receive crates passively, active players that engage with Daily Missions will receive more crates per month — including 2 guaranteed Mission Crates with elite and legendary loot. With that, we expect to see more players competing on the servers while they are actively making progress on their missions.

New DLC
4 new character skins are in! The Grenadier finally flips out with the Mad Bomber outfit. The new Marksman dresses as a Secret Agent on her majesty’s service. Red Leader Shadow is ready to lead a squad of acrobatic ninjas to victory (I’d love to see that). And the Vanguard goes medieval with her new Crusader armor. Head to the store page and choose yours!

Grenadier Mad Bomber

Marksman Secret Agent

Shadow Red Leader

Vanguard Crusader

Improved Infrastructure
Last but not least, we’re improving our server infrastructure in São Paulo and Europe. We’ve upgraded our servers and we now have better processing and networking in these regions. This should help you fight better matches in America and Europe servers :)

See you on the battlefield!

Hey Soldiers!

Just a quick notice:
We're upgrading and testing new server configurations today and you may experience some instability in the next hours.

Our intention is to normalize the servers until the end of the day. Please, feel free to report any connection problem you may have in this thread.

Thanks for your comprehension and stay safe in the battlefield!
