They will only be available for purchase from Nov. 30th. to Jan. 5th. When you buy your Christmas skin, you will get to keep it and use it when the Christmas 2015 Event is over.
In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) a brand new Soviet revolver will make its presence known! The Soviet Nagant M1895 Revolver!
The Nagant M1895 revolver is a 7 round revolver with the option to upgrade the ammunition to the large and powerful Leonov Medved round. This makes the M1895 a distinct revolver with a high damage output potential and impressive stopping power. It is the handcannon the Soviet soldier will love and trust when they are forced to abandon their primary weapon.
Rejoice US Tankers and Paratroopers. In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) comes the M1A1 carbine with folding stock.
As the weapon was designed to be a light and compact weapon, it only requires 4 equipment slots. This makes it available to US tankers and it allows for new tactical options for US paratrooper loadouts.
Paratroopers can unlock it on the Parachute Ribbon at Rank 11 as the Second paratrooper carbine.
Or it unlocks for tankers on the Armour Damage Ribbon at Rank 9 as the Second tank weapon.
The handling is quite similar to the existing M1M2 Carbine.
In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) we’re adding a brand-new weapon to the game. The much requested Soviet submachinegun the PPS-43 or as it is known in Russian the ППС – “Пистолет-пулемёт Судаева” (Pistolet-pulemyot Sudaeva) which translates as Sudaeva’s submachinegun.
The Soviet PPS-43 unlocks on the SMG Assault Ribbon at Rank 11 as the THIRD Soviet SMG. It is a compact and light SMG with good handling and range.
The incoming Xylander (named after German general Wolf-Dietrich von Xylander) update brings two new special edition weapons and a few variations for the MP 40.
P08 Parabellum – ‘Eisernes Kreuz’ edition
This update introduces a new exclusive version of the P08 pistol. Customizing pistols by adding new grips or modifying the existing ones was something that officers sometimes did. Here is the first one we’re adding to the game. The ‘Eiserne Kreuz’ (Iron Cross) edition of the P08.
The pistol has an ivory handle with an embedded black iron cross placed so it is visible even when you hold the pistol in your hand in game.
WAIT THERE IS MOAR!
In the next update named Xylander the Soviet faction gets a new rifle as promised. In the last update we introduced the German StG44 and the American M1/M2 Carbine, as a high-level infantry weapons and here is the equivalent Soviet version. The Soviet players will get access to the Avtomaticheskaya Vintovka Simonova 1936 model (Автоматическая винтовка Симонова) aka the AVS-36.
In the coming Walker update we are moving some ribbons around and adding a bunch of new ones.
We are rolling the rifle ribbons into a new “Infantry Assault” ribbon and the tank ribbons into one “Armor Assault” ribbon.
But what about my progress on the removed ribbons? We’ll take your progress from the individual ribbons and ADD them together, so a lot of you might start the new ribbon at a very high level, we thought this is the most fair thing to do.
ARMOR & INFANTRY ASSAULT
The two new ribbons introduced are the main ribbons for Infantry and Tankers and progress in these ribbons are unlocks weapons and vehicles in the different categories.
We know the gameplay with scoped rifles is loved by a lot of players, so this is something we have wanted to expand for a while. BUT this said, the different classes still have their different purposes on the battlefield, and we think it is much more fun if these differences are expanded by for example not giving everybody access to all scopes, but limiting the high end scopes to the recon class.
