There are also new customization options for those looking to get the best out of the new gear dropping this week.

As noted in the patch notes, the biggest news concerning the new Arsenal of weapons that can be wielded on the Battlegrounds.

This includes the L85A3 is an assault rifle, boasting low recoil that opens up a new way for Survivors to take on the Battlegrounds of 2051.
