UPDATE: Crossout Day

[PC][PS][Xbox] Crossout: Crossout Day

We invite you to celebrate the 9th anniversary of our favourite game! Together we will participate in the “Mad chase”, fight each other during the “Crossout Day”, receive gifts and earn all the rewards. Let’s go!

Mad chase

Attention! The event will be available from May 23 to May 29 inclusive!

  • “Mad chase” is a PvE mode for 4 players.
  • The goal is to stop the moving trucks before they leave the location.
  • Be careful: the trucks are well-equipped and armed; they move quickly and are guarded by heavily armed raiders.
  • To win, you have to destroy one or both trucks.
  • If the team could not stop any of the trucks, it counts as a defeat.
  • The battle takes place on the modified “Cursed mines” map.
  • Only vehicles from the “Armoured car” slot can participate in the battle.
  • For each battle, the player gets batteries as a reward.

Special challenges and rewards

Throughout the event, you will have access to a chain of 3 daily challenges:

  • Play the mode. Reward: “Military reserve” container.
  • Score 2000 points in the mode. Reward: “Stickers package” container. You may get new stickers “Dead hand” and “Sawed-off shotgun” from the container.
  • Deal 10000 damage to enemies in the mode. Reward: “Paints package” container. You may get a new paint “To Valhalla!” from the container.


During the event, a special gift will be available to everyone, which contains:

  • “Rogue” portrait.
  • Unique profile background.
  • Unique profile logo.

To receive the gift, you need to log in to the game during the event and click on the “Incoming gift!” message on the right side of the garage screen.

Crossout Day

Attention! The event will be available from May 30 to June 12 inclusive!

This year, we have updated the beloved “Crossout Day” brawl:

  • “Crossout Day” is a confrontation in the spirit of the “Free for All” brawl, where the player has no allies. Everyone around you is an enemy that needs to be destroyed; the more you take out, the better!
  • You can play the mode as part of a group of up to 4 people, but all players in the group will be enemies to each other.
  • The battle takes place on the maps “Sand harbour” and “Abandoned town”.
  • Players take part in the battle on preset vehicles, which can be extremely unusual. All armoured vehicles used in battle are the creations of our players and partners.
  • The brawl has respawns.
  • The resource (scrap metal) is rewarded in accordance with your placement. The amount of scrap metal obtained decreases if you place lower.
  • At the beginning of the battle and during each respawn, you can choose a vehicle to continue the battle: there will always be 3 random blueprints to choose from.
  • Points are awarded for the destruction of opponents and parts of enemy vehicles. Points for the destruction of the enemy also sum with the points for all the parts of their armoured vehicle at the time of destruction.

Special challenges and rewards

Throughout the event, you will have access to a chain of 2 daily challenges:

  • Complete 2 battles in the “Crossout Day” brawl. Reward: 80 Engineer badges.
  • Destroy or help destroy 30 enemies in the “Crossout Day” brawl. Reward: “Holiday essentials” container.

Crossout Anniversary Gift

During the “Crossout Day” event, each player will be able to receive a unique pack as a gift. Be sure to stop by the party to get your gift!

Special workbench with upgraded parts

During the “Crossout Day” event, you will have access to a special workbench where you can produce upgraded parts with pre-determined upgrades.

Game Center

  • Changed the sound of the explosion of wheel drones.
  • Improved the balance of sounds towards greater comfort when playing.
  • Improved sound settings towards better clarity and clearness of the mix.

Added the option to enable automatic detection for the game’s graphic settings. To do this, in the “Graphics” settings tab, you need to run the “Autodetect settings” test and wait for its completion.

  • Fixed a bug where you could get stuck in the wires when falling into the pit on the “Ravagers foothold” map.
  • Fixed a bug with incorrect camera positioning in a number of situations on the “Terminal-45” map.
  • Fixed a bug where receiving the patch “Rocket launcher mastery 6” was not counted towards the progress of the patch collecting challenges.
  • Fixed a bug that led to a noticeable decrease in the frame rate when shooting “Spark III” and “Flash I” at the Syndicate garage.
  • Fixed a bug when water disappeared on the “Ship graveyard” map in the “Patrol” and “Back on patrol” modes.
  • Improved a number of in-game texts and icons.

Awww all the fun starts on 30th rather than today

Mad chase more like boring chase, feels just like playing all those oh so fun escort or chase raids that just drone on and you just want to be over and done with already

I think the right build might help make it more exciting, but ya, the chase can be done in snore mode for sure. I suppose keeping it simple helps guarantee everybody gets a fair shake at the prizes.

I’m just glad they didn’t do one of those events with that crap leader-board scoring system they like to inflict on us (one step forward, two steps back).

I’m probably ready for some PVE anyway, but I am going to need to build something more entertaining to spice that mode up a little…throw in some music. I can use a break from PVP, probably.

theres a way to cheese it and score ridiculous amounts of damage to lol. the acari actually helps alot to.

do it fast and get 6 batteries, do it slow get 16. so… what prizes? LOL
ah well, at least its free batteries even at a smaller amount. i can save up a bunch and just use them as i please. though i dont craft a whole lot using batteries.

Just a sticker and a can of paint, looks like.

You were right. That schit sucked. I’m glad it’s over.

Also correct. I’m not impressed with the rewards I received.

I guess they aren’t feeling very celebratory about this anniversary? It was a schitty year in the wasteland, after all.

Seems like it would have made more sense to showcase their latest and greatest feature with this anniversary; Rush Melee Speed Bricks.

Kidding. I think it would have been logical to showcase the helicopters, since that was the big thing this last year that changed everything. They should have kicked out some chopper bling, and maybe a chopper brawl.

It would have sucked probably, and made everybody mad though, because those helicopters aren’t really that popular.

My biggest complaint with the mad chase is how it punishes efficiency, you have to artificially waste time if you want to make any proper use of it rather than 3-6 batteries 300 score per match

Got any idea why they would set this brawl up this way? It seems convoluted, like they had to make a considerable effort to get it this way.

This kind of weird schit is exactly why this game isn’t popular despite it’s potential, IMO. It’s like they spend all day making a fantastic cake, then garnish it with a rat turd, and IDK why…still a great cake though, right?

Probably because last time they ran a chase event people cheesed it to finish it in 30s till they nerfed the rewards.

So it’s just to keep people logged on longer, loitering? That’s sort of weird too.

It’s probably to allow people to play it through fully rather than rush it. The loitering bit is probably not intended but they can’t really expect players to finish at the amount of time they decided it would take.

No balance changes. Back to Helldivers 2, a game that gets regular update and respects its consumers.

Game is so dead, I just spent over 30 minutes in the queue with various builds trying to get into a PVP match and couldn’t do it. No matches at PS 5-6K, and I don’t have the inventory to build any higher. Logged off after multiple tries.
