Patch notes 0.14.0

Update 0.14.0 has a lot of new stuff: a collection of Swedish operators, Legendary outfits for the EZAPAC collection, Emotes, Executions, and Camouflages. This time, we divided the whole set of novelties into two events: the Fenrir’s Trail Battle Pass and the Defender of the Fatherland Day event. This way, every player — whether a PVP or PVE fan — has the opportunity to get new stuff in their collection.

But note that both the Battle Pass and the Holiday Event have unique properties.In the first case, you can complete the Battle Pass and get at least one operator of the new collection (and much more). In the second, enjoy the new gameplay in Onslaught and get, among other things, the exclusive HQ background.

How to play, where to play, and how many rewards to collect: it’s all up to you. What about changes? They are, as usual, in the patch note.
