[PC] Crossout 0.12.10. Witch hunt

Wastelands once again became a place for the Witch hunt event! An updated especially for the event “Ravagers foothold” map, new unique rewards for your cars and ranges, clan battles with leviathans and more exciting stuff are waiting for you in this update!

“Witch hunt” event

Once again Ivy XO dresses up as a Witch from the Valley to arranges a holiday for everybody! During the annual event, the Survivors clear the area of dangerous sweets, and terrifying new products - pots with the most unexpected contents. In the meantime, in anticipation of hellish races, everyone exchanges rumour about the return of the semi-mythical Mirage, "The Witch's Hunt" is getting started!

  • Tricky treats can only be obtained in the brawl “Witch Hunt” or in the special PvP-mission “Trick or treat!”.
  • Brawl “Witch Hunt” and the mission “Trick or treat!” available from level 4 of the Engineers faction.
  • “Tricky treats” along with other resources can be exchanged for unique decor, paint and stickers in a special “Witch Cauldron” workbench.
  • Active “Premium subscription” increases the number of treats received as a result of the battle.
  • At the end of the in-game event, all unused treats will be withdrawn without replacements.
  • The event will last till November 8 inclusive.

Features of the updated brawl “Witch Hunt”:

  • This time the brawl takes place on an updated “Ravagers foothold” map.
  • Victory in the brawl goes to the person who can keep festive balloons on his armoured vehicle longer than others and earn 100 points.
  • The brawl offers pre-assembled blueprints with boosters.
  • There are festive cauldrons on the map, and by breaking them the player can get additional advantages in the brawl. Among them: temporary invulnerability, temporary invisibility, the ability to release a “Kapkan” mine or a shell from a homing “Scorpion”.
  • Be careful and be ready for anything — festive skulls can also attach a bomb to your armoured car or slow it down. Hurry to touch the enemy’s armoured car and pass the bomb to it, otherwise, you're gonna go boom!
  • To take the holiday balloons from the enemy, you only need to crash into his car. And remember: a high-speed chase is not the only way out. Show your cunning and ingenuity!
  • The brawl will be active during the whole time of the event and will not replace the rest of the brawls.

Every autumn his vehicle rides in the Valley and it vanishes just like it appears — without a trace. No one knows the true story of the invisible driver. Some say that he is a soldier who strayed from his squad, still looking for his comrades. Others — that he is a scavenger, who disappeared under the rubble and who continues to search for something in the ruins of an abandoned research institute. To meet Mirage is a bad sign among the survivors. Should the collector see any value in your hardware — you will never be found.

The Deluxe pack will be available in the official store till December 13 inclusive.

Clan battles with leviathans

  • In the future we may reconsider the current schedule.

Brawls

Race

Added reversed versions of both “Rocky track” and “Industrial track” maps to the “Race” brawl rotation.

Structure parts

  • Now, with each new level of prestige in the “Scavengers” faction, the player will get random structural parts from the following list (until all the parts are received)::
    • “Veil” — 1 pc.
    • “Right phantom fender” and “Left phantom fender” — 1 of each.
    • “Rear cover” — 3 pcs.
  • Thus, all structural parts can be obtained for 3 levels of prestige with the “Scavengers” faction.
  • Attention! The parts are issued for each new level of prestige obtained after the update. Prestige levels received before the update are not counted, and the parts are not given for them.
  • If you purchased the “Phantom” pack (regular or deluxe), then if you increase the level of prestige with the “Scavengers” faction, additional structural parts will not be issued.

Weapons

“Skinner” harpoon

Now when you destroy the enemy using only the Skinner (and in case you or other players didn’t deal any additional damage to the car) it counts as you’ve destroyed the car.

“Fafnir” shotgun

Improved weapon’s physical model.

“Nidhogg” shotgun

Improved weapon’s physical model.

“Mandrake” howitzer

“Mandrakes” min. angle changed to 45°.

This is done to make the aiming process more intuitive, and the crosshair’s behaviour more predictable. Now there should be no cases like when you aim and move your mouse up to move the crosshair further, but it starts to go back.

Radars

  • Now “Doppler”, “Maxwell”, “Oculus VI” and “Verifier” radars are able to detect mines at a certain distance:
    • Oculus VI: 24 m.
    • Verifier: 30 m.
    • Maxwell: 16 m.
    • Doppler: 20 m.
  • For all the mentioned above radars added a new upgrade result that increases mine-detection radius by 25%.

  • Now, when you select the player’s nickname in your market history tab, you open his personal file.
  • Now links in the chat with vehicles and ranges blueprints have their own colours.
  • Improved the main menu’s background appearance in 4K resolution.

  • Added a new audio track for the “Witch hunt” brawl.
  • The sound of the “Growl” cabin has been improved.

  • Improved visual effects of all the plasma emitters.
  • Improved the “Nest” launch module’s painting pattern.
  • Now, when you select the “Delete everything” option while in construction or range building mode, the part you’re holding in your hands won’t disappear.
  • Now, if the car is invisible, its active holograms become visible only when the car is close enough and its silhouette is visible too.

  • Improved appearance of a number of environmental objects on the “Broken arrow” map.
  • Fixed a bug where damage of both “Spark III” and “Flash I” increased when firing with multiple clicks.
