The PTS 1.5 is now available for download. (Election day Survival edition, I guess)

The ubisoft link:

These are the notes. They are all interesting so I'll post verbatim, with the exception of the bug fixes.

Update 1.5Game changes

  • Added World Tier 5 bracket (230+ GS)


    Enemy NPCs are level 34.
  • Maximum Gear Score raised to 256.
  • Heroic Incursions are now available in Tier 5 only.

[*]Named Gear items have been implemented in the game. One piece is available for each Gear Slot and each one comes with a unique Talent. Named Gear items can only be dropped in World Tier 5 or in Survival game mode.


  • [Mask] Ferro’s oxygen mask: Players can move and shoot while under burn status effect.
  • [Knee Pads] Shortbow championship pads: Grenades have shortened fuse timer.
  • [Holster] Colonel Bliss’ holster: Powerful improvements for sidearms.
  • [Gloves] Skulls MC gloves: Increased damage when no gear set bonuses are active.
  • [Chestpiece] Barrett’s bulletproof: Powerful bonuses when skills are on cooldown.
  • [Backpack] NinjaBike messenger bag: Less DZ loot and DZ XP lost when dying in the Dark Zone.

[*]Enemy Armor Damage now functions in PVP: damage calculation in PvP ignores a percentage of the target’s armor equal to one third of the shooter’s Enemy Armor Damage.

[*]Enemy Armor Damage is now a Major bonus instead of a Minor bonus. With enemy Armor Damage now applying to PvP, this will create an interesting situation where players will have to decide between increasing their Armor or Armor Damage.


  • It can now roll on Backpacks, Masks, Kneepads, Holsters and Gear Mods.
  • Roll values have been lowered to compensate for the fact that it can roll on more item types.
  • Rolls on existing Kneepads will be scaled to appropriate values. Note that Enemy Armor Damage will still be considered as a Minor bonus on existing Kneepads.
  • Enemy Armor Damage will be removed from existing Masks and replaced with another minor bonus.

[*]Stagger now functions in PvP: high-stagger weapons (Shotguns and Marksman rifles primarily) will now cause the target’s aim to flinch.

[*]NPCs now have chances to drop crafting materials. Chances to drop higher quality increases with World Tiers.

[*]Season Pass Open World Supply Drops will now scale with World Tier. Opening a supply drop in World Tier 1 will reward with Gear Score 163, 182 in world tier 2, etc.

[*]Items in the Scavenger crate in the Base of Operations will now scale with World Tier.

[*]Vendors will now scale to player’s Gear Score, independently from the World Tier they’re in. This means that the Gear Score and currency value of goods they sell will adapt to the player’s Gear Score.

[*]We have adjusted the Credits and Phoenix Credits rewards for Main Missions, High Value Targets and Incursions to better scale with World Tier. This overall results in an increase starting from World Tier 4 and above.

TL;DR

1. New Tier 5, with max GS# raised to 256.

2. PVP:

  • Enemy Armour Damage now functions in PVP. It has been added as a major attribute on gear, so as to be a decision between rolling for amour or rolling for damage. An attempt to break from the "one"build approach this game suffers from at times.
  • Stagger functions in PVP. (Shotguns and... marksmen riffles)
3. WEapons:

  • Shotguns get the nerf bat.
  • Vector gets some love
  • LMG a little nerf.
3. New Gear

  • New weapons.


    MG5 Light Machinegun
  • Infantry MG5 Light Machinegun
  • Famas Assault Rifle
  • Model 700 Marksman Rifle
  • M700 Tactical Marksman Rifle
  • M700 Carbon Marksman Rifle
  • Converted USC Submachinegun
  • Police UMP-45 Submachinegun
  • Tactical UMP-45 Submachinegun
  • Snub nosed Rhino Pistol
  • Rhino Pistol
  • Rhino Special Pistol

[*]New named weapons.


  • Golden Rhino
  • Urban MDR Assault Rifle
  • Tommy Gun
  • Thompson M1928

[*]New gear set, one long talked about, Frontline.


  • 2 pieces: +15% Protection from Elites
  • 3 pieces: +30% Ballistic Shield Health
  • 4 pieces: Allows using an SMG if one is equipped when Ballistic Shield is deployed. SMG Crit Chance is reduced to 0%

Yeah, remember once you had expressed the hope they'd have some vintage guns from WWII. Thought you'd be pleased.

Hmm, posts long-ass post and then hopes others will read it when he didn't ?
Lol, meant it as the td;dr version.

Interesting.

The Rhino is an interesting gun.  Considering they have the Vector in it seems common sense they would look to get the Rhino in also.

The M700 is a bolt action so low RoF again.  Would love to see a VSSK get in.

The MG-5 is apparently also known as the H&K 121.

Info can be found here on the real guns (only one accessible from my work place  :10_wink:  ).

Overdose getting nerf'd is a bit of a bummer.  Support stations are getting buffed and seeker mines do their bleed damage faster.

Enemy Armour damage getting nerfed is also a bit of a irritation.  Now it will be armour or armour damage.  As you cant shoot when you are dead I would guess most would go for the armour.  Trying the frontline set with armour damage may be interesting though.

Awwww... I thought it was going to be the MG-3 ... booo! That said what they have here is basically a lightweight GPMG and we're getting into the realms of "Heavier" LMG's.

Enemy Armour damage getting nerfed is also a bit of a irritation.  Now it will be armour or armour damage.
Testing will tell if its too much of a change and we're back to over-long Times To Kill. Currently in 1.4 they have it pretty much perfectly I think.

MG3 & MP40 seemed be the grandmas of a few modern submachines.
MG34 > MG42 > MG3 ... now ruined as the MG5 is NOTHING like its predecessors ... *sobs quietly*

MP40 > ... evntually to ... MP-5 of course. 

....Oh god I'd love an MG3 in the game ... 1,300rpm-belt-or-drum-fed-loveliness ....

The Rhino is a revolver.

Just got a snub nosed one after completing a Survivor mission (and extracting in 1h 30mins).  I extracted with two others  but only teamed up for the extraction.  The Hunter was a lot less difficult than I expected.  Just think rogue agent although I was carrying a gold crafted G36 by then  :1_grinning: .

  • The virus gives you around 60 mins to complete but injections and pills can stall it. 
  • Temps can be controlled by clothing.
  • Once you get a decent weapon you can take on the Lvl 28 bad guys quite easily.  The lvl 30 gold guys are really tough though.
  • Get to know the underground subway passages.  They have loot and keep you out of the cold.  Same for underground garages.
  • The map is the same as the normal map you play on but in a heavy storm.
Got an MG5 as well on the new tier GS  :51_scream:
