Players who have purchased the "Year One" Pass will have the Gunner specialization automatically added to their account, which can be equipped anytime. Those who haven't purchased the extra DLC will have to take on Special Field Research, which consists of five stages of in-game challenges. This is the fourth specialization added to the game, giving the military shooter a bit more strategic depth. It's the first heavy weapon in the game and requires signature ammo, which can be earned by killing two enemies in one continuous burst.

The Gunner specialization gives players a minigun with a large belt of ammo that grants extra armor when equipped. The latest update also comes with a series of bug fixes and quality of life improvements, including a skill tree rework, changes to generic mods and updates to AI.
