This week, we’re introducing three new premades, focused mainly on modding assault rifles and combat rifles into precision instruments of war. If you’re looking to specialize in remote tactical problem-solving, read on, agents!
Plus: We’re adding a new tier of Datanode chance pack, plus a week’s worth of flash sales.
The Ruffzmc01 may be an assault rifle, but it’s modded completely for a marksman. The clip is just five rounds (versus 30 normal), but every round will hit harder, and with a x6 zoom and less spread, more shots are going to hit.
The Alpha P2.0 'Desert Grave' is a little closer to the standard assault rifle. There’s still a 6x zoom, so it still has pretty good aim, but it exchanges some stopping power for a 30-round clip.
The Sub-Shock Magnum is a combat rifle that’s even more focused on aim. Each round has a little less stopping power, but the zoom is increased from 1.3x to 4x, and the spread from moving or firing from the hip is reduced pretty substantially, as is the recoil.
Plus, we’re adding a new tier of Datanode chance pack. We’ve recently done an update to the Datanode system, including making the Common and Uncommon datanode chance packs GP only, and we’re adding a new Rare datanode chance pack.
This chance pack will be available for 100 ZEN or 1000 GP. All of the possible Rare-quality datanodes are available in this chance pack. Remember that there are five tiers of datanode quality, so this gets you closer to the best datanodes with the biggest bonuses! Learn more about Datanodes in the wiki article.
In addition, we’re going to be doing some flash sales throughout this week. The first of these will begin tomorrow morning, and rotating them until next Tuesday. All times will be in PST, meaning they’ll run from 12:01 AM PST until 11:59 PM PST.
We’ll be having five flash sales total, running until next Tuesday morning (12:01 AM PST, 2/5). The final sale is sufficiently swank that we’ll run it Sunday morning through Monday night.
Remember, though: The only way you’ll be able to find out what’s on sale is to get in-game. Make sure to drop in on Blacklight every day this week to find out about the flash sales!
