The new mode Hacking: First Person will be available in Caliber from October 5th to October 19th. It is intended for players who like increased difficulty. The mode will disable the marks according to the Fog of War rules and set the view to the first person.
The mode is based on the Ranked Hacking rules but with some minor changes.
The attacking team must pick up the Hacking Tool and get it to one of the two defending team’s servers. Round duration is 180 seconds. The defending team has to prevent the Hacking Tool installation or, if it happened, to deactivate the tool. For this, the team has 46 seconds. Tool deactivation takes 5 seconds.
All marks — silhouettes, health points, applied effects, etc. — will be disabled for both teams. As soon as you have a visual on an enemy, your operator will inform you about it. However, you’ll need to hover the crosshair over the enemy to highlight them. If you move the crosshair away from the enemy, the indication will disappear again.
By default, in Hacking: First Person mode, the first-person mode will be switched on for all players. Switching back to the third-person mode will be impossible.
Exception will be the HD66 of Yàowáng the Medic from the Jiaolong Chinese collection.
Operators’ abilities allowing opponents detection will continue to function as before. Strelok’s Recon, Faro’s Muleta, Scout’s Flare, and the like to the rescue!
Ten maps will be available for play. You will be able to play by the new Hacking rules on Radar for the first time; the map will appear slightly more often than the others. Night versions of the maps are removed from the search.
Also returning to Hacking are Amal Harbor, Al-Malik Hotel, Dam, and Object 903 maps.
Victory reward will be increased. For winning the battle, you will get 1,000 Credits and 1,350 XP.
