Season Warm-up Event Gameplay:

After joining the event, players will battle in 4-player teams in Classic Mode (unranked) and can complete missions to earn a small amount of Season 14 ranking points, which will be converted into Season 14 season rating points after the update of Season 14.
Adjustment of Mode Availability Times:

New Arena Gameplay - Team Gun Game (Available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from July 31st)

- New Map - Library. The first-ever indoor map, with a symmetrical layout and three assault routes: left, right, and center. Take positions on platforms, in doorways, or behind bookshelves depending on your current weapon. This gives players with different styles a fighting chance.
New Arena Attachment:
- New Loadout attachment: Barrel Extender. This is a muzzle attachment that can be used with the vast majority of Sniper Rifles, Rifles, and SMGs. It increases the firearm's effective range and reduces the damage reduction of bullets due to distance.

- Some keys can be hidden or disabled in the custom control panel now.
- Dynamic holding switch is available in FPP Mode. With the switch on, the firearm is held at a low height when not firing, thus increasing the field of view. With the switch off, the firearm will not be lowered and will appear the same as in Arena.
- Improved the custom control panel display.
- Adjusted the default pick-up amount for Frag Grenades and Smoke Grenades to 1.
- Added an effect preview for energy boost items.
