It's Friday and that means time for a brand new weekend event! This weekend: Upgraded zombie loot, Double XP in the Caliwood maps, disabled in-game revive for Rocky Ford PVP servers and Upgraded airdrop loot in the Battle Royale game-mode!
Oh yeah, in case you've missed this week's developer blogs; we are making major development steps by porting the game over to 64-bit. This means insane performance and stability improvements for pretty much any player. For more information about this go to: http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8751-devblog-porting-new-z-to-64-bit/
Also, we have started on the assault rifle reworks where our plan is to get the assault rifles and other non-sniper rifles to be better and more useful again. For all our progress and more information on this go to: http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8744-devblog-assault-rifles-rework/

For this weekend event we'll have it live the following period of time:
START: January 24, 2019 12:00 PM (CET)
END: January 27, 2019 12:00 PM (CET)
Now, let's jump into further details about this weekend's weekend event:
- Zombie Loot+. (OW / SURV)
In both the Open World and Survival game-mode loot dropped from normal zombies is improved. This weekend they will drop more but also higher tiered items. They will drop better medical supplies, better ammo and in Survival better crafting items. Time to farm some zombies!
- Caliwood Double XP. (OW / SURV)
Experience gained in the Caliwood maps will be doubled. This goes for both in the Open World and the Survival game-mode.
Note: This is only on official servers.
- Rocky Ford no in-game revive. (PVP)
We have disabled the in-game revive timer in the Rocky Ford PVP map. This means players can no longer revive in-game. We have received some feedback in the past about the in-game revive option and we'd like to try out and see what happens if we disable it for the weekend only.
- Battle Royale Airdrop+. (BR)
Better airdrops in the Battle Royale game-mode meaning higher tier weapons from the random airdrops. We have basically removed all the ammo and attachments and now the airdrop will pretty much only spawn high tier weapons. For this weekend only of course!
- ROUTINE: Battle Royale Map Rotation
As always, the main and only Battle Royale map will be changed. This time we are changing over from Arena to Tropico.
Note: We change the map rotation in the Battle Royale game-mode every week due to the low(er) amount of players playing Battle Royale. If you have any suggestions, ideas or feedback please let us know at http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/5388-maps-battle-royale/
- MARKETPLACE SALE: Revolution Skinbox 25% DISCOUNT + Invisible skins now available!
This week we are doing a sale on the Revolution skinbox and some the Invisible skin recipes for the backpacks!
Note: This sale is a weekly one so has already started before the weekend event and will not have the same start-end times as the weekend event.[Blocked Image: https://i.imgur.com/BBo0aKr.jpg]
