Additionally, a new RPG and SOCOM sniper rifle are joining the game in gold tier and purple tier airdrops respectively. The RPG is mainly for taking out enemy vehicles, and the SOCOM rifle offers a new option for long-range shootouts. A new vehicle, the ARV, has also joined the game, and can fit a full team of five with a hatch in the top for squad members to fire out of.
