The item is available from 03:00 on Thursday, June 13, until 03:00 next Thursday, June 20 (Moscow time).
Temporary regimes and missions:
A single shot is a pair of battles:
Low gravity. Each player has 50 points of health. Only sniper rifles are available from weapons, and only bandages from medical items.
Mode for a squad of four players, several stages of combat.
Get ready to defend yourself – look for weapons and objects, get materials and build defenses.
Earn points by destroying nightmares, collecting points multipliers and destroying nightmare generators.
After the battle, continue to search for materials and equipment.
Go to another area of the map to the next defensive line.
Revival is available before the start of the last stage, in which players must destroy the nightmare boss and the crowd of his minions.
Look for special loot chests with powerful weapons and points multipliers.
Quantum countdown (“Battle of the Storm”):
In this simulation, an unstable bomb is teleporting around your base. Brains are attracted by the energy of the bomb, and they are trying to destroy it. Watch the location of the bomb and react quickly, because the buzzers will choose new, sometimes unexpected routes.
This new simulation in “War Games” will allow you to get a little more event tickets and a new flag, and at the same time will make a variety of daily tasks.
