3/25 Patch Notes - New NX Supply Cases!

Woot! New patch notes here:
March has us in the thick of battle, soldiers, and Central Command has got your back with more gear and new game changes! Open one of several new NX Supply Cases in the Black Market for a chance at new rare weapons, including the L96A1 Super-Magnum, the MP5 RAS Centurion and the M590 CQB Mariners. Show off your Clan's national pride with new national flags that have been added as selectable icons for Clan Emblems! As always, you'll find even more new weapons, items and gear in the Depot and the Black Market to add to your arsenal. So get out there and raise hell, and as a special combat tip from CentCom (wink)... aim low.
