‘Modern Combat 5: Blackout’ Holiday Update: Ho Ho Ho, Now I Have a Rail Gun

TouchArcade Rating:

Nothing says the holidays quite like instagibs, right? That’s what Gameloft is doing for Modern Combat 5: Blackout (Free) to celebrate the season: a new instagib event is playable for a limited time, where everyone gets a tier 7 rail gun, and one shot equals one kill. No class traits, just gibs. But wait, a rail gun? Which class uses that? Why, it’s the new Soldier class, the Bounty Hunter. They collect Diamond Dust, which can be used to buy additional grenades or activate military support. And their 7 tiers of weapons are experimental weapons, starting from a smart pistol and going all the way up to the aforementioned rail gun.

But it wouldn’t be the season without special Christmas-y content, too. There’s a new Santa armor for the holidays, giving you a Snowflake ability, which gives you grenades that leave behind a frozen area, slowing them and reducing their fire rate. There’s gift wrap and Christmas weapon and body camos, along with Santa and reindeer masks. Plus, the maps have special Christmas themes and there’s holiday jingles in the game menu. A Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good kill-to-death ratio!
