For the first time in its history Warface will feature a hefty series codenamed "Specter" with "Gamma" being the first equipment group of the series available (its legendary-tier helmets and gloves are already up for grabs). The VP quantity required to unlock this armor was decreased significantly in comparison with the weapon cost, so you will easily unlock the set for your favorite class.
The items’ specs differ in order to suit better the gameplay style of each class. What is more, the "Specter" series offers class-specific set bonuses that will be unlocked as soon as you equip several items of the series.
Revamped "Widestreet" map
The game now features the revamped version of the familiar Free for All map "Widestreet" with improved gameplay and appearance. In terms of gameplay, there are no drastic changes but players will no longer be able to get up on the second floor of the high building in the centre of the map. Besides, several fences that made players vulnerable while climbing were demolished.
Golden McMillan CS5 and regular version upgrade
The precision rifle McMillan CS5 was boosted and received a long-awaited golden version!
The following stats were modified:
- The minimum damage was increased;
- The damage multiplier to limbs was improved.
To offset these changes the rifle’s silencer will reduce damage by 5%. Nevertheless, it is worth pointing out that taking into account the gun’s specs and silencer modifications the revamped McMillan CS5 will be more powerful than before. We’ll soon tell you about how to get your hands on these awesome guns.
Maxim 9 is the first integrally suppressed pistol in Warface providing a unique gameplay. Without a doubt, the gun will be appreciated by PvP fans due to its high damage, good aiming accuracy and excellent range. Thus, the pistol can be placed among such popular high-tier performers as S&W M&P R8 and CZ 75 Czechmate Parrot.
Maxim 9 comes equipped with two unique barrel accessories and a 1,4x reflex scope.
Marlin 1894 Custom
Marlin 1894 Custom is a new Medic weapon that can remind you of other one-off in-game guns: just like Saiga Spike - Marlin 1894 Custom uses slug rounds instead of usual pellets, while its reload system resembles that of another Wild West symbol, Winchester M1897.
Marlin 1894 Custom comes equipped with two unique accessories: a silencer and a x1.3 reflex sight with a fast zoom that increases accuracy while aiming.
April Fool's Day ain't no laughing matter. It's the time of the year when we traditionally test our new spells of explosive power. Muggles refer to it as a cutting edge technology developed by the world's secret services. But we know the truth. And we'll laugh last.
Top-tier illusion spells will be cast on XM8, Saiga Spike, Beretta MX4 Storm, Tavor STAR-21 Navy Blue and Calico M950.
And now it's time for the real deal. Time to upgrade that rusty unused rod of yours into something shiny and adored. The wand’s special effects are spectacular while the unique achievements it grants are absolutely mind-blowing.
It’s time to teach your enemies a magic lesson!
"Galaxy" weapon series
Prepare for jump to hyperspace! "Galaxy" series awaits you.
The new series comprises the following arms: HArms CQR, SAI GRY AR-15, SAP6, Uzkon UNG-12, H&K MP5A5 Custom, Micro-Roni, H&K G28 and H&K USP, as well as cosmic weapon skins for normal guns. We will soon tell you about how you can get them.
Now it is possible to put a PvP match on hold. The Warface Tournament Server players have already checked this function.
- The pause function applies only to Clan Wars, Private Rooms and Ranked Matches ("Plant the Bomb", "Capture" and "Blitz").
