Update 0.14.2: patch note

With Update 0.14.2, we will add new content to Caliber and rebalance some operators. Specifically, this version includes Frontline mode on the Shopping Mall map, a new season of Ranked Battles, a new showcase of items for Fragments, and a whole new game mode and a marathon in it (they will be pre-installed on March 30th and start on April 6th).

Also in this version, the Field Bonuses special mechanic returns to Onslaught permanently, the first-ever outfit for the Recruit appears, and the AMF collection and the Strelok, the Marksman of the Vympel collection, are rebalanced.
