We are pleased to present a major update for Hired Ops, which includes two new game modes, three new locations, changes to balance and mechanics, and various fixes.
- The new modes in Hired Ops are "GunGame" and "GunGame DM".
They differ in the fact that the first battle is in a format of team confrontation. The aim of the match - to be the first to pass ten levels of weapons, and to complete the match by getting a knife kill. In the comments, please leave your feedback on the new modes.
- Added new location - Tarkov Seaport loading complex, storing TerraGroup materials that had not had time to evacuate before the collapse. Location is available in TE, TC, GG and GG_DM modes.
