Greetings to all survivors! As part of the Crossout update 1.39, we present the previously announced rework of seasons, daily challenges and wheel grip, as well as a number of balance tweaks, plus many interface improvements and fixes of known bugs.

Daily tasks

Please note that the transition to the new system of daily challenges will occur on September 10.

In this update, we are reworking the system of daily challenges. You can learn more about our plans in the special developer blog. Now the player is given several daily tasks, which must be completed in a day. In parallel, we're removing the old system of daily login rewards and replacing it with a daily challenge. It is completed automatically immediately once you enter the game. The current system of daily login rewards will be active until September 10. Tasks for staying in the game for 2 hours, a day, and 14 hours a week are also removed. The ‘Miner's container’ can now be obtained for completing a special weekly task.

Features of the new system:

  • The tasks are given once and are updated daily. Progress through unfinished tasks does not carry over to the next day. 
  • The player is free to choose in which order and what tasks to complete. 
  • Each task can be completed only once a day.
  • The player receives a certain amount of scrap metal for completing daily tasks.

List of daily tasks:

  • Enter the game: 40 units of scrap metal.
  • Win in 5 PvP-battles (missions, raids, clan battles): 75 units of scrap metal.
  • Win in 3 PvE battles (raids, Invasion): 75 units of scrap metal.
  • Win 5 battles in any mode with a weapon of the given type: 75 units of scrap metal.
  • Complete 1 operation on the market: 25 units of scrap metal.
  • Complete 5 daily tasks: 75 units of scrap metal.
  •  

Weekly tasks

Please note that the transition to a new system of weekly tasks will occur on September 10. Current season is prolonged till September 2 inclusive. Until then, all survivors have the opportunity to complete the seasons and get the rewards.

With the update Crossout transitions to a new system of weekly tasks, which replaces the seasons.

Features of the new system:

  • Tasks are issued every week. The tasks are updated on Monday. With each new week, the progress through unfinished tasks from the previous week is reset and does not carry over.
  • The player is free to choose in which order and what tasks to complete. 
  • Each task can be done once a week.
  • We are introducing a new resource — ‘Engineer badges’. Players receive a certain number of ‘Engineer badges’ for completing weekly tasks.
  • The accumulated badges can be exchanged in the ‘Workshop’ for a number of rewards:
    • 500 units of scrap metal for 300 badges.
    • 200 units of copper for 300 badges.
    • 500 units of wires for 500 badges. The reward is available from the 10th level of the Engineers faction.
    • 250 units of plastic for 500 badges. The reward is available from the 10th level of the Engineers faction.
    • ‘Wanderer's crate’ for 600 badges. The reward is available from the 10th level of the Engineers faction.
    • 200 units of electronics for 800 badges. The reward is available from the 14th level of the Engineers faction.
    • 200 units of batteries for 800 badges. The reward is available from the 14th level of the Engineers faction.
    • ‘Pathfinder's crate’ for 3000 badges. The reward is available from the 14th level of the Engineers faction.
  • Badges that have not been used are stored in the warehouse and do not expire with time.
  • Badges are an untradeable resource.

    • 3500 units of scrap metal
    • 2800 units of wires
    • 1400 units of batteries
  • Weekly limits will now update on Mondays.

Wheel grip rework

You can learn more about our plans in the special developer blog.

  • Now all wheels from a single rarity tier move equally great on hard surfaces, equally well on dense surfaces and get equally stuck in loose surfaces.
  • Grip with loose surfaces for wheels of basic and common rarities has been improved. Grip on hard and dense surfaces remained the same.
  • Grip with all surfaces for ‘rare’ wheels has been slightly improved with respect to the wheels of common rarity.
  • Grip with all surfaces for epic rarity wheels has been slightly improved with respect to the ‘rare’ wheels.
  • As part of the change, the center of mass for cabins is adjusted to reduce the likelihood of flipping of armored cars.

New starter pack Crossout — Insomnia

  • Unique armored car: ‘Spirit’;
  • Weapon: 3 machine guns ‘MM5-4 Vector’;
  • Rare cabin ‘Wyvern’ and rare engine ‘Hardcore’;
  • Unique character portrait: ‘Maxine’;
  • Unique sticker: ‘Spectral Flame’;
  • Unique paint can: ‘Half-light’;
  • Increased the limit of used parts to 55;
  • 650 in-game coins.

Everyone had to stay home alone once. But not Maxine. As a child, she found a walkie-talkie and has never left if behind since. None of the parents could remember when exactly the child had found that thing. Still, they let her keep the walkie-talkie — what's wrong with a kid interested in technology?

The voice came from the radio only at night. It told Maxine amazing stories: of stars shimmering above, worlds without man, and great unknown ships, which had to be watched. 

The quiet life came to an end in a couple of years, when the voice ordered Maxine to smash all the TVs in the house and escape to the forest, fleeing from something terrible that would soon come. It was hard to find the girl. The final decision about her fate was made when Maxine refused to return and give away the radio. Obeying the will of her parents, she went to the clinic far from the city, where she encountered Crossout. Was that what the voice had warned her about?

Much blood has gone under the bridge since then. The voice changed, and Maxine is different too. But they are always together. Over the years, the voice's requests have become stranger and stranger, but Maxine trusts her old friend and constantly watches whether he warns her about something terrible again. It's amazing how tenacious sometimes batteries are in old radios...

Please pay attention to the dates this pack will become available:

  • Japan - 29 of August;
  • United States of America - 4 of September;
  • Europe - 5 of September.

Game modes

Raids

Steel cradle

Improved and changed raider spawn spots.

Frontier defence

Changed the mechanics of calculating the accrued parts for destruction of raiders.

  • The parts are now divided between all the players who participated in the destruction of a raider, in accordance with the damage they dealt.
  • When the raider is destroyed by a defensive turret, the parts are divided equally among all participants of the raid.

Missions

  • Added new raider blueprints for 6000 and 10000 PS.

Clan battles

Players are no longer excluded from the battle for inactivity.

Parts

Structural parts

Added a new structural part ‘Pipetooth’

  • 2 parts are issued when you reach level 3 in the ‘Firestarters’ faction.
  • 1 part is issued when you reach level 8 in the ‘Firestarters’ faction.
  • 1 parts is issued when you reach level 12 in the ‘Firestarters’ faction.

Weapons

‘Fortune’ minelayer

  • Projectiles no longer explode upon contact with allied vehicles;

‘Reaper’ minigun

  • Changed the weapon's perk. It no longer overheats while shooting.
  • Damage increased by 9%.
  • Barrel spooling time is increased by 0.5 sec.
  • Barrel stopping time is reduced by 1 sec.

Developer comment: ‘We decided to remove the old perk, because it did not add unique situations and gameplay moments. Due to the ability's randomness, the player, as a rule, could not use it effectively. The new perk will allow the minigun to deal constant damage and effectively control the terrain.’

Weapon booster ‘Tormentor’

  • It no longer heats melee weapons and no longer increases damage dealt to them.

Developer comment: ‘Since the module was activated during contact with the enemy, the only damage that was done to the weapon was the explosion of enemy modules. We are sure that the heating from the Tormentor's perk aggravated such situations, limited the possibility of using melee crafts and conflicted with the task of the module’.

‘Lancelot’ explosives

  • Bonus damage from the unique perk for every 300m traversed is reduced by 5%.

Developer comment: ‘Lancelot's perk gave excessive bonuses, which made one-time damage in a collision unjustifiably high.’

Flamethrower ‘Draco’

  • Flamethrower durability is increased by 10% (from 283 units to 310 units).

Developer comment: ‘Draco is a quite effective weapon, but it still slightly loses when compared with other legendary guns.’ 

Controller
Introduced gamepad vibration.

  • Vibration varies depending on the surface on which the armored car is moving, the weapons used, the projectiles that hit the armored car.
  • Vibration can be toggled in the game settings.

Interface

  • Descriptions of all movement parts (except hovers) now have information about their effect on the power of the armored car.
  • Added in-game chat.
    • The chat is only available on the garage screen.
    • The chat is available for all players, starting with level 1 of the Engineers faction.
    • By default, all chat channels are disabled. To connect one or several channels, you must open chat settings and manually connect the channel of interest.
    • Players can post links to exhibited crafts to game chat.
  • Redesigned the personal survivor file window, added information tabs, battle log and received medals and patches. We also added a ‘quick access’ button to the portrait, which allows you to add a player to your friends, invite them to a group or to a clan.
  • Added a ‘Liked’ tab to the exhibition that saves all the blueprints you've liked.
  • Improved the interface of daily challenges.
  • The clan application window now displays the current level of the player who posted the application.
  • Improved the crosshairs for guns with slow-moving projectiles (except ‘Mandrake’).

  • Added notification for an already-submitted clan application. The notification appears if the player submits an application again before the previous one is reviewed.

  • Added an animation for new tasks in raids.
