PC Christmas Event
The 12 Deaths of Christmas
Free-for-all Event (no teams)
Kill other players to advance weapon tiers and earn prizes (see below).
At the start of the game you are given a tier 1 weapon, and you must earn score to advance through all the different weapon tiers until you reach the final tier. The first person to get a kill with the final tier weapon wins the game.
12 Deaths of Christmas 2017 (Weapon Tiers)
12 Deaths of Christmas 2017 (Role)
The HUD will show remaining score required, current weapon tier, current place and remaining time.
Everyone will be notified when a player reaches the final tier.
Every time you advance to a new weapon tier your Role will level and you will receive the corresponding reward.
Your Role progress accumulates over multiple games, so you don't need to reach all weapon tiers to complete the Role.
Deck The Halls 2017 (Achievement)
Note: Score is only awarded for killing and assisting with kills on players. No score is awarded for vehicle kills.
