What is new in Crossout Update Today? – February 17, 2022
New mode “Arena”
Attention! The mode will be available until March 20 inclusive!
- “Arena” is a PvP mode that puts your individual and team playing skills to the test.
- The mode is available from reputation level 7 with the “Engineers” faction.
- Battles take place on the maps designed specifically for this mode:
- “Power center”;
- “City pond”;
- “Defence line”.
- The battles are held in the “3 vs 3” format.
- You can enter the mode as a part of a group or on your own. In the second case, you will join the team of 2 random players.
- The first team to win in 3 rounds (out of a maximum of 5) wins.
- If the winner is not determined within the time allotted for the round, a deadly zone appears along the perimeter of the arena, which gradually narrows the area available for battle.
- If the player leaves the battle before it is over, a raider is added to the team instead.
- Before entering the “Arena”, you can select up to 3 car blueprints in advance (similar to clan battles).
- These can be your own armoured cars as well as those that you’ve unlocked as rewards.
- The vehicle can be changed at the beginning of each next round.
- The use of explosives, fuel tanks, barrels, and the “Tusk” cabin is prohibited in the assemblies.
- There are 2 modes available to you: “Arena” and “Arena: Rating”.
- Attention! The first week of the event is set as a “warm-up”, during which only the “Arena” mode will be available. The rating mode will launch on February 24, at 06:00 GMT, and it will end on March 14, at 00:00 GMT.
- In the standard “Arena” mode, players are matched according to their vehicle power score (PS). The system takes into account the vehicle with the highest PS value out of those 3 that you chose.
- In the rating mode, the matchmaking is based on your current rating score. The number of points affects your position in the leaderboard.
- For reaching the “Golden”, “Silver” and “Bronze” leagues, players will receive appropriate backgrounds and emblems for profile customization, as well as memorable decorations that will symbolize their skills and will not be available to other players: “Golden league champion”, “Silver league champion” and “Bronze league champion”.
- Both standard and rating modes are available in the corresponding tabs after pressing the “Select mode” button on the garage screen or via the special event banners.
- All players have access to the special Arena rewards, which are given for achieving the next level.
- The Arena rewards and the new seasonal battle pass rewards are separate things and are earned independently.
- Arena levels can be increased with points, which are awarded for completing special daily challenges related to the mode, as well as for each victory of your team in the mode (both in the standard version and in the ranked version).
- There are 36 levels with Arena rewards.
- Among the already familiar rewards, the Arena rewards also include:
- ready-made armoured vehicles, which can be used only in this mode and only during the event. This will help those players who have just joined the game and don’t have a lot of parts yet;
- battle pass Levels (experience points that are sufficient to raise the current season level by 1).
You can test the received armored car via the interface for selecting 3 cars for the mode or in the Arena rewards scale.
“Steel gladiators” season
Attention! The season “Steel gladiators” and the battle pass packs will be available until April 27 inclusive!
- There are 54 levels with rewards in the event. Leveling up in the event will unlock new rewards.

- All players without exception (both with and without a paid Battle Pass) can access:
- “Workpieces” of the new parts from the season, as well as parts from previous seasons (you can find and use the received workpieces in the “Resources” tab in your storage). The workpieces remain in your storage forever. They can be used at any time, even after the end of the season.
