Snowstorm in Crossout!

The New Year comes to Crossout! And with it, the Snowstorm. Take part in festive missions and get special Crackers! This time Scavengers brought fireworks and stickers. Scar Santa is ready to exchange valuable (to him) Crackers for special New Year decor, stickers and fireworks!

Attention! The event will end on January 6 at 0:00 GMT.

New brawl ‘Christmas Heist’

The scoundrel Gronch hates holidays. He stole a pack of gifts and a Christmas tree to solemnly destroy it. Your task is to get into his den, save the tree, return the presents and teach Gronch a lesson.

  • With the beginning of the brawl Survivors need to get to the gate in the lair of the evil Gronch, fighting off his arrogant minions.
  • The henchmen of Gronch will try to destroy the stolen Christmas tree, which you need to protect by any means!
  • Survivors must find stolen gifts and return them to the point of evacuation.
  • Gronch will not tolerate such a brash intrusion!Evacuate enough gifts and get ready to face the Christmas kidnapper face to face!

Attention! ‘Christmas Heist’ is a PvE brawl where players battle with raiders.

Lost and Found Explosives

Added a new temporary resource — Crackers. Created in the distant 2017 for the celebration of the New Year. They have long lost the ability to explode, but some benefit from them can be extracted until the Snowstorm is over.

  • Crackers can be sold and bought on the in-game market.
  • A new mission New Year Fever appears in the game during the event ‘Snowstorm’”. For the victory in this mode you will get 5 Crackers. In case of defeat — 1 Cracker.

In exchange for Crackers, you can get a festive container from the Scar Santa with unique decorative parts. You can also exchange Crackers for working fireworks!

New Year's Garage

 

 

 

To experienced survivors — a beautiful New Year's garage! Our engineers decorated the hangar for the winter holidays. In the hangar, they installed a Christmas tree and snowmen from old tyres. Cozy, warm, festive!

New Year's pack ‘Frostburn’

The pack includes:

  • Unique armored car ‘Icebreaker’;
  • Unique cabin: ‘Icebox’ of epic rarity;
  • Heavy cabin.Gives 11 energy pts.
  • Tonnage: 9000 kg
  • Weight limit: 19000 kg.
  • Structure: 455 pts.
  • Unique feature: ‘Damage for weapons with limited rotation angles is increased by 10%’.
  • Unique weapon - 2 frontal machine guns ST-M26 Tackler of epic rarity
  • Power consumption - 3 pts.
  • Structure: 205 pts.
  • Limited firing angles.
  • Unique feature: ‘Has increased resistance to damage.This perk does not work when shooting.’
  • Modules: engine ‘Razorback’, ‘Weapon cooler’;
  • Unique hero portrait: ‘Jack Frost’;
  • Paint cans: Cold flame, Material: Aluminum;
  • Maximum number of parts increased to 55;
  • 2100 in-game coins.

Jack is one of the last representatives of the Frost sect — a small closed commune, that held its cold rituals even before the disaster. A few years ago, the sect ceased to exist — one of its own could not stand the stress and burned down his native village. Nobody knows who it was, so the remaining Frost survivors are hunting each other.
As if atoning for some crimes, Jack tries very hard to be kind to ordinary people and give them gifts: he may bring a severed raider head, or make a necklace from teeth.
But both children and adults avoid him for some reason. So Jack has to wander the wasteland, in search of those he can make happy.
 
Unique cabin: ‘Icebox’ of the epic rarity in the set:
These cabins used to be a key attribute in the rituals of the Frost sect. Inside, they maintained sub-zero temperatures and played loud, dramatic music. But if you throw out all that is superfluous, there is enough room for armor and additional equipment.
