4/29 Content Update Notes - Showdown, Default Weapon Changes, Bonus GP/EXP Passes and more!

For 4/29, another dangerous mission has been added to the roster... Operation: Showdown is going to take you soldiers into the heart of a gun smuggling ring in coastal China. Don't worry, Central Command is providing a whole new set of weapons, boosts, and supplies to ensure your survival. Good luck, brave men and women of CA... you're going to need it.

New War Zone: Showdown

SITREP: Weapons are being trafficked through a port city in Southern China. The local police don't have the kind of training and equipment to deal with this problem, so they've called in private security forces. Vehicles carrying illicit weapons have been spotted driving in and out of a warehouse on the outskirts of town. Storm the warehouse, seize the smuggled weapons, and take out the terrorists.

-- Supply Case PSG-N (with a chance at the ultra-rare PSG-1 MOD CAMO)
-- Supply Case P90-N (with a chance at the ultra-rare P90TR SE)

Server Configuration Changes

We've added two new server types:

-- The new Delta server is the battleground for the most elite of elite operators. You may be good, but here, you'll find out if you're really the best of the best.

In order to fight on Delta, you'll have to:
-- be ranked Sergeant First Class 1 or higher
-- have a KDR of 1.5 or higher

The rewards for fighting on Delta are great. Matches on Delta will reward our most hardened soldiers with a 40% EXP boost and a 20% GP boost. Stats for action on Delta will be tracked separately on your web Player Profile for visible bragging rights.

-- We're also trying out a new Black Market server -- a special channel for customers of the Black Market. If you have spent 15,000 NX or more in the Black Market, you'll automatically be eligible to enter.

Finally, we've also added one additional server channel to both Alpha and Bravo (2 more channels total).

Nutshot is here to stay!

We heard you loud and clear, brave (and masochistic) soldiers -- Nutshot will remain in Combat Arms as a permanent feature to inflict humiliation on your foes.

how do i trade my default weapon?

It costs NX cash.

I'm really dissapointed that they nerfed the M590. Now it as bad as the R580... no point in buying anything other than the SPAS-12 now. Shotguns need to be 1-2 shot kills, any more and you will be shredded by enemy bullets. That's the point of a shotgun.

However, the M590 CQB hasn't been nerfed, so that makes it even more valuable.
