The “Road to singularity” season begins in Crossout! New parts of the Dawn’s children, created using the technologies of the Ravagers, a new PvP location, redesigned projectile hit damage mechanics and numerous accompanying balance changes, as well as a new interface for the assembly mode — this and much more is already available in this update!
Attention! The season and battle pass packs will be available until October 11 inclusive! On consoles, the battle pass packs will be available from June 8, 11:00 GMT!
- There are 75 “main” levels with rewards in the season. Leveling up in the event will unlock new rewards.

- 30% resistance to blast damage, 75% resistance to melee damage and increased collision damage.
- Durability: 330 pts.
- Energy drain: 3 pts.
- Mass: 154 kg.
- Perk: when approaching an enemy from the rear closer than 25 m, “Charybdis” releases blades, increasing the area of contact with the enemy, but decreasing the damage dealt by 20%. After these conditions are broken, the effect will be active for another 4 sec.

- Added new blueprints for AI-controlled armoured vehicles from 7000 to 13000 PS.
- Optimized queues for faster player matchmaking in raids. Rotation time of raids changed to 20 minutes.
- At the request of players, the “Marble Quarry” map was removed from the rotation of clan battles.
You can find a detailed description of the new location for the “Control” mode in our developer blog.
- Expanded a number of narrow driveways on the following maps:

Attention! The current recipe for “RL-9 Helicon” is a temporary one. The timer in the game interface counts down the time until the recipe is updated.
Also added an appropriate patch and challenge for relic rocket launchers.
The following changes are relevant for projectiles that have the properties of flight speed and size.
For such projectiles, we refined the algorithm for hit registration. Now the damage from the hit is applied to all the parts crossing the volume of the projectile throughout its flight. Previously, this mechanics recorded a hit only on one part with subsequent damage at two meters from the point of contact. The old registration algorithm didn’t match the new projectile mechanics, so it was decided to make adjustments to it. The new registration algorithm will allow additional balancing of the weapon (together with the penetration ability). The changes in projectile size are related to this refinement.
The parameter allows adjusting how much damage a projectile of a particular weapon has to deal from a hit until it explodes.
In the characteristics of the weapon (in the “features” section), a parameter has appeared that shows the value of the penetration ability. By the presence of this parameter you can understand if the global changes in projectile damage mechanics (removal of the 2-meter limitation) apply to your weapon. If you don’t see this parameter, then your weapon was not affected.
A parameter value of 80% means that the projectile will disappear/explode after it hits more than 80% of hit damage. The checking of how much damage the projectile has dealt is done after the damage has been dealt.
So: the projectile has 100 of hit damage and its penetration ability is 80%. Let’s consider 2 situations:
- The projectile hits a part with 90 pts. of durability, the projectile will spend 90% of its damage, and then it will disappear or explode, because this value is greater than 80%.
- The projectile hits a part that has 40 pts. of durability. It destroys it and goes further, because it inflicted only 40% of hit damage. The next part on its way has 100 pts. of durability. The projectile will deal 60 damage to it and disappear or explode, because in total it dealt 100% of damage, which is more than 80%.
This way, before disappearing or exploding, the projectile will deal a total from 80% (penetration value) to 100% of its firearm damage.
Such mechanics are required for greater flexibility in weapon configuration. It allows you to further adjust the minimum amount of damage that a projectile can inflict on parts on its way, without affecting the maximum damage to one part.
- Projectiles no longer have a 2-meter limit and continue to fly until their bullet damage is depleted or until the projectile’s “lifetime” ends. The amount of damage dealt is spent according to the principle of the durability of destroyed parts: the amount of initial damage is subtracted from the durability of each destroyed part. The projectile disappears when the hit damage is exhausted.
- The explosion, if any, occurs after the penetration ability is exhausted. This will also create situations where a projectile hitting a lightweight part from the edge of the armoured vehicle will destroy it and, without encountering other parts, will fly further without exploding.
- The perks related to projectile hits work on the first contact.
- The impulse is applied on the first and on the last contact.
As we noted earlier, we cannot remove the “2-meter limitation” from such weapons without significant performance losses. In order to reduce the effectiveness of parts that pass damage relative to such weapons, the limitation has been increased up to three meters.
Comment: All changes to the weapons are related to the new mechanics (removal of 2-meter restriction). These changes allowed us to solve the problems found as a result of testing.
We should note that the durability and penetration parameters were adjusted in groups, since the testing was conducted with a relatively small group of players. After the changes are released on the main server and more data is received, additional adjustments may be made in the following updates.
Weapons balance changes
Movement parts balance changes
- Explosion damage reduced by 20%.
- Reduced explosion impulse.
Comment: the change is related to the new damage mechanics and weapon edits and should reduce the negative effects after such modules are destroyed.
- You can no longer mount more than one radar.
- Removed mechanics of passing explosive damage through.
Durability increased from 26 to 56 pts.
- Durability increased from 71 to 104 pts.
- Mass increased from 72 to 126 kg.
Comment: in order to avoid a possible problem with the radar’s armouring, it was decided to limit their amount on a car. Improved the durability parameters of the lower rarity radars, as they were most often used in pairs in battles.
Increased the maximum speed at which the car jack can be used.
Comment: the change should help solve the problem where the car jack could only be activated when the car comes to a complete stop.
Added new attachment points.
Comment: the current placement of the attachment points is inconvenient for placing the module and limits its installation options too much.
- Maximum weapon rotation speed bonus increased from 70% to 80%.
- Maximum speed bonus increased from 20% to 22%.
Comment: the efficiency of vehicles with “Oppressor” has decreased too much after changes to its perk.
Reduced the effect of mass on the acceleration of the car. The highest bonus is applied to the “light” type.
Comment: this change is aimed at slightly increasing the mobility of loaded builds.
- Cabin type changed from “medium” to “light”.
- Cabin rarity increased to “special”.
- PS increased from 750 to 1300.
- Maximum cabin speed increased from 80 to 90 km/h.
- Added perk: increases the accuracy of mounted weapons by 15%.
- Cabin rarity increased to “special”.
- PS increased from 750 to 1100.
- Durability reduced from 380 to 330 pts.
- Maximum cabin speed increased from 70 to 75 km/h.
- Tonnage increased from 4100 to 4600 kg.
- Mass limit increased from 9000 to 9500 kg.
- Added perk: the damage of weapons and drones is increased as long as there are enemy vehicles in a radius of 25 meters from you. Max. 10% bonus is achieved over 10 sec.
- Cabin rarity increased to “special”.
- PS increased from 750 to 1100.
- Maximum cabin speed increased from 55 to 65 km/h.
- Added perk: charges when there are enemies within a radius of 115 m, and the more the enemies, the faster. By pressing the button, speeds up weapon reloading by 30% for 6 sec.
- Cabin type changed from “medium” to “light”.
- PS increased from 1500 to 1800.
- Please note that the change of class also allowed the cabin to get an increased bonus to the effect of mass on acceleration. Now the power of a loaded armoured car with “Torero” is higher than if the cabin had remained “medium”.
The changes concern only structural parts that increase the durability of the vehicle.
The parts of each faction have their own durability to mass ratio. We have improved this ratio by increasing durability. The “lighter” the faction, the greater the bonus (in %) it has received.
Also, we have added resistance to different types of damage (firearm, explosive, thermal, energy) to the parts that increase the durability of the vehicle (if they do not have other features, such as “Lets damage through”). The set of resistances depends on the faction.
Resistances should be a bonus rather than a fundamental parameter for selecting a part, and should add some uniqueness to each faction and add variety to the process of assembling the vehicle.

Comment: the addition of durability and various resistances are directly related to the new damage mechanics and weapon changes: the survivability of vehicles without “screen armour” decreased with the removal of the 2-meter limitation for projectiles.
- PS reduced from 42 to 38.
- Mass reduced from 204 to 189 kg.
- Durability increased from 86 to 90.
- PS increased from 42 to 51.
- Mass increased from 204 to 251 kg.
- Durability increased from 86 to 120.
Comment: fixed a bug due to which the parameters of both parts were identical and didn’t match their sizes.
- Increased the durability of all frames by 2.5 times.
- Reduced the “lets damage through” indicators from 90% to 75%.
- Melee damage resistance reduced from 50% to 25%.
Comment: during testing of the new damage mechanics, we found a problem with the reduced survivability of frames and parts behind them.
These changes are aimed at ensuring that the frame (as a part) better protects the parts located behind it, while at the same time its own survivability remains at the same level.
We have completely redesigned the interface of the vehicle assembly screen, based on the results of closed tests of the previous interface by different categories of players. When working on the new screen, we tried to take into account the suggestions that were sent to us, as well as the results of the tests.
- The auto-assembly function and its settings are now available in the vehicle assembly window.
- Now, at the top of the screen, you can see how the energy of your vehicle is being used:
- the amount of energy that the mounted cabin gives
- ratio of energy received from mounted modules. For example: if the car has a generator that gives 4 units of energy, then next to the equipment icon you will see +4 units of energy. If you start mounting modules that consume energy, the amount of energy will begin to decrease and may go into negative amount in this category. This means that your equipment consumes more energy than it provides.
- the amount of energy consumed by the mounted weapons.
- By following the prompts on the screen, you can use various functions:
- the “Tab” key (or the corresponding gamepad button indicated in the tooltip on the left side of the screen) will open the assembly control panel, which includes a storage of parts and additional control buttons. Here you can switch between the storage categories, rarity of parts and different search filters.
- the “Enter” key opens the in-game chat. The “Esc” key closes the chat to continue the vehicle assembly process.
- at the bottom of the screen there are tips on the main functions and the corresponding keys. Additional tips for possible interaction with the part appear if you move your cursor to the part or hold it in your hands.
- the “H” key (or the corresponding gamepad button indicated in the tooltip on the right side of the screen) shows the full list of items that are used in your current assembly and how much energy they consume or provide. With the list of items, you can see where a specific part is mounted, open a storage with already filtered parts of the same type, or remove a part from the vehicle.
- the “F” key (or the corresponding gamepad button specified in the tooltip in the upper right corner of the screen) enables and disables augmented reality mode, in which all attachment points of the parts become visible.
- Now, when you add a part from the storage or remove it to the storage, small pop-up notifications are displayed about how this action affected the basic parameters of the vehicle.
- Updated the visual appearance of cards with parameters of parts.
- Now melee weapons have additional collision damage displayed in the “Features” column.
- The card now shows the source of damage from this part, as well as the type of damage (icon next to the source or in the hint when you move the cursor over this parameter). Some weapons now show multiple sources of damage (for example, hit damage and blast damage for cannons).
- The parameters of the weapons, indicated in the form of bars, have been revised. Now the displayed graphical parameters are normalized, which will allow you to visually compare the same parameters for weapons of different types. Please note that the revision did not affect the parameters themselves — only their correct display in the part cards.
- Improved the appearance and readability of parameters, including those to which bonuses from upgrades are applied.
- Added the “Notification center settings” section to the “Interface” section. The settings of this section will allow you to enable/disable a certain type of notifications in the notification center.
- At the request of players, the placement of the “Report an error” button in the game menu has been changed.
- Updated gamepad key bindings for the building mode.
- Added numerous unique sound effects that accompany the process of vehicle assembly and attaching various parts.
- Updated the sound effects of the “Executioner 88mm” cannon.
- In connection with the updated projectile damage mechanics, the sound effects of hit and explosion have been improved for a number of weapons.
- Improved the overall mix settings.
- Improved the sound effects of using interface functions.
- Slightly changed the reverb settings in garages.
- Improved the “Absorption sphere” and “Damage meter” parts: added separate displays to show damage from a hit and damage from explosion (damage from explosion is shown on the lower display).
- Redesigned the model of the “Ampere” generator.
- Improved the effects of the “Icarus IV” and “Icarus VII”. Now it has become easier to distinguish one hover from another by their effects.
- Improved the firing and projectile effects of “Helios”, as well as the projectile effects of rocket launchers and grenade launchers.
- Fixed a bug where the “Mauler” saw couldn’t deal damage when it was mounted vertically. Increased the damage area.
- Fixed a bug that caused reserve seasonal challenges to fall into the general count of challenges displayed in the queue.
- Fixed a bug with a severe loss of wheel speed on sloping surfaces and during turns (including for the “Bigram” and “Omni” wheels).
- [PC] Fixed bugs with incorrect operation of simultaneously enlarged drawing scale and enabled vertical synchronization.
- Improved the implementation of gamepad sticks. Now the game reacts to a lesser stick deviation more than before.
- Fixed a bug where the damage from a projectile hit inflicted with the active perk of the “Falcon” co-driver increased as the projectile flew through vehicle parts.
- Fixed a bug related to incorrect firing sounds of some turrets in raids.
- Fixed a bug with the lack of passage on the mini-map of the “Eastern array” location.
- Fixed a bug with the incorrect effect of the “Mengu”.
- Fixed an incorrect visual appearance of projectiles of the “AM-5 Avalanche” weapon.
- Improved a number of in-game text strings and icons.
