Four New Weapons

-HRG Incision – Field Medic
A railgun that fires overcharged, highly-piercing bullets and darts. The bullets are capable of shocking Zeds and inducing the EMP effect on them. Darts heal other players for substantial amounts of health when targeting other players. When used on Zeds, these darts deal much more damage than standard darts and have the potential to knock down or stumble Zeds caught in their path.
-Winterbites – Gunslinger
Fire large, nitrogen ice shards that explode on impact, dealing damage and applying the freeze affliction to any Zeds caught inside its radius.
-Mosin Nagant – Sharpshooter
Five-shot, bolt-action, internal magazine-fed military rifle. This M91/30 allows a capable sharpshooter to fire at distant threats, stab at nearby threats, and block and parry damage from incoming threats. This is a paid DLC weapon. This weapon can be shared amongst players with the weapon sharing system.
-Riot Shield / Glock 18 – SWAT
A combination of the Riot Shield and Glock 18. The Riot Shield can mitigate most incoming, frontal damage only while a player is aiming down the sights. Its bash is capable of slamming into multiple Zeds crowding in front of you. The Glock 18 is a fully automatic pistol with two fire modes: single and automatic. This is a paid DLC weapon. This weapon can be shared amongst players with the weapon sharing system.

The Return of the Christmas Seasonal Zeds
