Gun Shield Update

Dear Fellow Stalkers!
 
Thank you for your continuous support, and feedbacks. We are glad to announce that the Christmas update is coming soon!
 But before releasing it, we would like to please you with an extra update, along with bug fixes and a new weapon in order to offer you a better gameplay experience!
 

New weapon: The Gun Shield

The Arctic stalk is considered one of the most dangerous regions to explore, and for good reason. Extra protection or firepower always comes in handy, and the new Gun Shield pack is both of them.
This unique hybrid was designed to allow players to attack their foes while being shielded from their attacks. The shotgun charge in the middle of the shield packs a powerful blast that can shred any enemy that dares to come close enough but loses most of its strength at a distance. Last but not least the shield part can collapse into a compact form for a better fit.
Try it out after unlocking the Arctic stalk.
We hope you will enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed creating it for you!
