The future of ranked battles in Crossout is in your hands! When discussing a possibility to enable a mode on an ongoing basis and add new unique rewards to it, your feedback and interest in ranked mode will play an important role.
Rules and features of the mode:

- To participate in the event, you need to have at least level 10 of reputation with the “Engineers” faction.
- You can take part in the event battles only on armoured vehicles from 6000 to 8000 PS.
- Battles take place based on the “Capture” scenario in the “6 versus 6” format.
- There are 5 leagues in the event:
- Iron (0 - 159 rating points)
- Steel (160 - 359 rating points)
- Bronze (360 - 599 rating points)
- Silver (600 - 879 rating points)

- Silver: 20 points.
- Gold: 20 points.
- How rating points are earned:

New PvP map “Clean Island”
Developer comment: “Clean Island” is the first map in the history of Crossout that shows what “big water” looks like. Unfortunately for the survivors, the water around the island is extremely dangerous. The Dawn’s children organized a scientific base on the island, which is primarily involved in water purification.
Battles on the map are based on the “Encounter” scenario. The teams start on equal terms from opposite edges of the map, and the task for them will be to capture the base directly under the water tower.
The terrain is designed in such a way that there are both advantageous positions on the upper level (for example, on any of the bridges leading to the point), and secluded positions near the arenas for close combat. Marine species enthusiasts will be able to drive at the very edge of the water right up to the capture point. However, they should be very careful, because the water is far from harmless.
When a player enters the water around the island, his car will start to heat up and take damage. Be careful: the longer your build heats up, the more damage you take!
Shallow water is a great place to lure your enemy out if you are already left unarmed. Or if you are just confident in your abilities and think that you will outlive the enemy. You can hold out at this depth for a long time, you can afford to make a mistake.
But there are also more dangerous zones: you can recognize them by the seething water and steam coming out of it. They heat up a lot and deal great damage. Plus, armoured vehicles with hovers won’t be comfortable in these hot springs either.
Similar especially dangerous zones are located around the island wherever the shallow water ends. And, although you are not limited by walls, it is still better not to meddle in shallow water.
Added destructible objects to maps:
- Wrath of Khan
Attention! Range exhibition will be available with the next small update!
Now you can share your incredible ranges with other players and evaluate their works through the in-game exhibition!

Damage increased by 5%.
Drone “AD-12 Falcon”
Damage reduced by 9%.
Turret “DT Cobra”
Attack range reduced by 30%.
Parts of “special” rarity
Turret “T4 Python”
Attack range reduced by 30%.
Damage reduced by 5%.
Developer comment: the above - mentioned “rare” and “special” drones and turrets mentioned above are extremely effective and deal a lot of damage in battles at relatively low PS levels. These specific damage adjustments will allow to slightly reduce their over-effectiveness. Your comments after mass testing were taken into account - they were checked with the statistics and replaced the damage tweaks with the attack range changes for the “DT Cobra” and “T4 Python” turrets.
Machine gun “Sinus-0”
Damage reduced by 6%.
Rapid-fire machine gun “M-37 Piercer”
Durability increased from 127 to 133 pts.
Cannon “Prosecutor 76mm”
- Now the cannon shells pierce 1 “pin” of armour (1 “cube” of the constructor).
- Projectile hit damage (bullet damage) reduced by 10%.
Parts of “epic” rarity
Cannon “Executioner 88 mm”
- Now the cannon shells pierce 2 “pins” of armor (2 “cubes” of the constructor).
- Projectile hit damage (bullet damage) reduced by 25%.
Developer Comment: With these changes, the “Prosecutor” and “Executioner” projectiles will now pierce enemy parts and deal damage to parts that were protected. For example, now the “Executioner’s” projectile will pierce the “Goliath” track and inflict damage on parts located behind it (cabin, generator, ammo pack, etc.), while the “Prosecutor's” projectile will pierce the “Train plow”, installed in the standard way, and the explosion will deal damage to parts that were protected by this plow.
Machine gun “Spectre-2”
- Damage increased by 7%.
- Changed the weapon’s perk. Direct hit now increases the weapon’s damage by 4% (previously 5%).
Plasma gun “Quasar”
Projectile speed increased by 10%.
Developer comment: The increase in projectile speed on the test server (by 21%) had too much effect on the plasma gun’s efficiency, that is why the final change is not so radical. We prefer to implement changes gradually. If this change is not enough, then we will discuss additional canges for “Quasar”.
Automatic weapon “Caucasus”
Damage reduced by 5%.
Developer comment: After the radiators began to work correctly in conjunction with the “Caucasus”, the effectiveness of this weapon has significantly increased. With the gradual minor changes, we almost managed to bring it to the proper level.
Increased the possibility that the “Kapkan’s” mine cable will break under sufficient load.
Developer Comment: Please note that the change will affect only super-heavy armoured vehicles, which will make it easier to get rid of the “Kapkan” cable. In the case of medium and light vehicles, nothing will change, the effectiveness of mines will remain the same.
Combat laser “Aurora”
The heating rate of parts is reduced by 20%.
Homing rockets “Nest”
Reduced the turning radius of the rockets.
Harpoon durability reduced from 342 to 308 pts.
Developer Comment: Changing the durability of the “Skinner” will make it a bit easier to shoot the harpoon and, accordingly, counteract melee-oriented builds.
Mechanical leg “ML 200”
PS increased from 325 to 400.
Developer comment: “At the moment, armored vehicles with three mechanical legs, as well as the so-called “Side walkers” are extremely effective solutions in battles at relatively low PS levels. Changing the PS of the legs will solve the problem and practically will not affect the builds on medium and high PS.”
Hovers “Icarus IV” and “Icarus VII”
PS increased from 360 to 420.
Reduced the turning radius of vehicles with armored tracks.
PS increased from 850 to 1000.
Developer comment: The “Goliath” tracks are extremely effective chassis with relatively low PS values, due to their model and durability. The change is aimed at bringing vehicles with these tracks into battles at higher PS levels.
Now the bonus of the engine’s perk decreases with a delay after changing the current speed of the armoured car.
The maximum damage bonus is now 140%.
Developer Comment: We agree with you that the cabin is an extremely effective solution for the leviathan, due to its large energy supply and the ability to install a large number of boosters. The change will have almost no effect on the effectiveness of standard armoured vehicles.
We would also like to note that we are already working on possible options for changes associated with installing a large number of identical parts that consume energy (weapons, etc.) on the leviathan.
Now the cabin increases not only explosive damage from rockets, but also damage when a rocket hits a part (bullet damage).
Parts of “legendary” rarity
Now the bonus of the shotgun’s perk decreases with a delay after changing the current speed of the armoured car.
Parts of the “relic” rarity
Turret cannon “ZS-52 Mastodon”
The mass of the cannon was reduced from 3038 to 2855 kg.

- Now, when using the “Neutrino” scope, explosive parts are visible on vehicles from the Autocatapult.
- Now the “Doppler” radar highlights the mines behind obstacles only within the detection radius. Now the spotted mines have a marker only if they are in line of direct sight.
- Fixed a bug where joining an ongoing raid “Frontier defence” on the “Chemical Plant” map led to the spawn of the player in the midst of raiders.
- Improved a number of texts, descriptions and icons.
