Dear Community,


This has already been announced in the patch notes of patch 2.40 but just in case some of you missed this and so that there is a separate event announcement we are posting this again. This post will contain all the information about the major Winter 2019 event.

For this major event there is no particular end date set yet but it will be up for around 2-3 months from now.

This event is much more than just a weekend or week event. It's starting now, with  the release of this patch and will end in around 2-3 months. The event can be considered as a seasonal event. This means all features listed below will only be active and available during the event period. Here's what we have for you guys:


  • Winter 2019 Trading Lounge & PVP Map.


  • Winter themed Season Pass #2. More about this soon. Season pass won't be instantly released at this patch but will be released soon after, most likely the Monday after the weekend event which will be December 2, 2019.
  • Winter 2019 Box. Brand new content including the new "Winter Camo" skin set. Also includes items such as the Riot Shield Winter Camo, Snow Ball Grenade and the Bear Hat to keep you warm this winter! Check the icons below or just check the content of the box in the in-game marketplace.
    • Box will be available in the in-game marketplace for GC.
    • Box will be spawning from Super Zombies, Alien Super Zombies, Toxic Super Zombies & rare loot in both Open World and Survival.
      The Box:
      Item Content:
      Skin Content:
  • Winter 2019 staves. 2 Special collectable unique staffs that players both in the Open World and Survival game-mode can grind for. Here are the two staves:
    • Sapphire Staff of Hope
      The Sapphire brings the power of hope. A hope for a better world. A hope for a better life. Hope in humanity. Hope in the future.
    • Emerald Staff of Wisdom
      The green emerald emanates the light, which has the power of wisdom. Just by being in the presence of it will help you understand the world.
      Now, you might wonder how to get them. This is different in Open World and Survival. Below we will explain how to get the staff(s):
      In both game-modes players can find and collect so called 'crystals'. There is two crystals added:
    • Sapphire Crystal
    • Emerald Crystal
      And here is what to do with the crystals once you have enough:
    • Open World: Players can trade in 250 Sapphire OR 250 Emerald Crystals in the trading lounge (using the repeatable mission) at the vending machine. For 250 of each crystal you can get a unique staff. You can collect and trade in as many as you want.
    • Survival: Players can craft 250 Sapphire OR 250 Emerald Crystals in a Sapphire or Emerald Staff. For 250 of each crystal you can get a unique staff. You can collect and craft as many as you want.
  • Winter 2019 Secret Spots. Secret winter spots players can find and farm at in both Open World and Survival. Winter secret spots can be found on the following maps: Colorado V2, Colorado V1, Caliwood, Oregon. Winter spots have a higher concentration of spawning winter related items including crystals and the Winter 2019 box.
  • Winter 2019 Character clothes. Available for purchase through the character selection screen. Winter 2019 Character clothes will be available for the following characters: Rockin' Rolla, Hunter, Ex Cage Fighter and Club Promoter.
