[PS4] Crossout 1.76. Witch Hunt

The Witch Hunt begins in the Wasteland! Trick or treat? The choice is yours, survivors.

Game event “Witch Hunt”

Every year, Ivy XO transforms into the Witch from the Valley to arrange a feast for everyone (and at the same time clear the area of tricky treats). And this time she decided to slightly change the subject of the event. Trusted people say that this decision was influenced by her personal meeting with the mysterious Catrina — the ghost that lives in the Wasteland. Who knows if this really happened, but the result is obvious — a lot of colourful ornaments appeared during the festivities.

Winter is coming — it's time to light the fire of the Witch Hunt, survivors!

  • 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  • At the end of the in-game event, all unused treats will be withdrawn without replacements.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 from October 28 to November 12, 20:59 GMT.

Features of the updated brawl “Witch Hunt”:

  • 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 skulls 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.
  • For 1, 3, 5, and 10 successful battles (1–4 places) in the Witch Hunt, the player receives the Witch's Sticker Container. Attention! Each challenge can be completed only once! The progress of successful battles is reset after each mission.

Developer comment: Please note that we are currently conducting selective testing of the updated interface, so some players may retain the old functionality of the “Battle” button. This is not a bug.
