Ah, the holiday season in Combat Arms! The red of exploding grenades, the green leaking from Infected and a retrospective on a year filled with high-powered weaponry – including the return of the L96A1 Holiday Wolf.
December’s Combat Arms update is all about getting in the spirit with the exciting “Best of 2011” weapons sale, a new GP weapon, and new and improved versions of Operation: Neptune and Piazza to try them out in. Bubba Ares has been busy preparing for the holidays as well, offering the Yuletide Persuader along with new upgradeable and customizable guns. Finally, the new Supply Crate MYST-Juliet has been released and it’s got many of these exciting new weapons inside.
See what’s happening:
Operation: Neptune: We’ve listened to your feedback and updated the map to improve basic gameplay, add new modes, and make it considerably deadlier.
Balcony Railings (including bullet-proof signs) have been removed. Watch your step!
The entire first floor and side path have been removed.
A second catwalk has been added and both catwalks now have additional cover.
New game modes have been added - One Man Army, Spy Hunt, and Quarantine Regen.
Piazza: Updated with several new game modes - Elimination, Elimination Pro , Capture the Flag, Spy Hunt and Last Man Standing.

New GP weapon
Howa Type 89
A 5.56mm assault rifle used by the Japanese military, the Howa Type 89 was nicknamed "Buddy" by the J.G.S.D.F. service. The rifle is much lighter than its bulky cousin, the Type 64, and features a highly simplified internal design that makes it far more cost-effective.
Available at 2nd Lieutenant IV.

New Forged Weapon
The Yuletide Persuader: You'll never get a pair of socks under the tree again. The Yuletide Persuader will bring out everyone’s holiday spirit – by making plenty of holes in their body for it to leak through.

New Recruit Packages
Also, to help our new recruits get into the fight faster, we have improved the Recruit Packages. New accounts still get the same high powered weapons and gear just for creating a character but now they also receive valuable bonus passes that increase the amount of exp and/or gp earned. If you have friends that haven't started playing yet, now is the perfect time!
