Get more in the Season 3 Battle Pass
Prepare for the epic battles ahead with the Season 3 Battle Pass, which offers 100 tiers of new content, including two new free weapons: the M1916 Marksman Rifle and the Nikita AVT Assault Rifle.
M1916 sniper rifle: The M1916 is a German semi-automatic rifle that hits hard with a long two-hit kill range before considering attachments. Recoil can be a challenge, but is easily combated with a moderate rate of fire.
Nikita AVT: The Nikita has the highest rate of fire in the assault rifle category, with a jagged upward thrust from sustained fire. Use Gunsmith to increase handling like an SMG, or focus on ranged damage and control to suit an AR’s more traditional role.
Purchase the Season 3 Battle Pass to instantly get Task Force Harpy Operator Mateo Hernandez at Tier 0. Later in the shop, the other two Harpy Operators, Florence Carter and Kim Tae Young, appear.
Earn two more weapons – the Sledgehammer and the H4 Blixen SMG – by completing their in-game challenges or by purchasing their respective store bundles later in the season.
war zone: Updated POIs, New Gulag, Operation Monarch
excavation site: Located between the mine and the ruins, the new POI allows Monarch Dig Site Operators to search abandoned digging equipment, tents, and giant skeletons for supply crates and other items.
Updates for Runway, Peak, Lagoon: Caldera’s northern airstrip, only partially built over the past two seasons, and its summit fortress are being fortified by those defending Caldera and its mysteries. Meanwhile, the changing tide on the lagoon will reveal a different route to the lighthouse.
OperationMonarch: While Operation Monarch won’t begin until around May 11, keep an eye out for signs of large creatures, ancient artifacts, Monarch research equipment and facilities, and…well, it won’t take much research to see the massive glowing axe , which sticks out of the ground right near the resort.
New Gulag — Hold: A new gulag developed by Toys for Bob, this roughly symmetrical arena is set in the belly of a ship moored just off the coast of Caldera, with identical passageways on the edge of an otherwise open space.
Mid-season information: Operation Monarch is likely to have a major impact on Caldera, but something else seems to be shaking and booming beneath the island. Expect more information about the mysteries beneath Caldera’s surface later in the season, along with another Rebirth Island twist on a classic war zone Mode.
