Scarlet Mercenaries

You can now hire a scarlet mercenary without going through an agency! If you've reached level 20, you'll get a chance to grab yourself a booby-trapped container. Inside the container, as well as a 5-day VIP status extension, stars, parts and some violet equipment, you'll find a contract for one of the scarlet mercenaries: Amber, Iceman or the Judge. The box will only appear once.

If you have an old booby-trapped container that's been lying around gathering dust, you'll now be able to sell it for five stars for one day after you receive the new booby-trapped container.

Weapon Upgrades

You can buy weapon upgrades (from level 20 and up) in the store or obtain them in "The Dictator's Six". You can get parts by selling spare upgrades or buying them in the premium store. Following the latest update, 5-star upgrades can be bought for 5 parts. Upgrades for items other than weapons will become available in future.


The probability of getting good mercenaries increases each time you refresh. The number of no-hopers is reduced.


For each hour you spend on patrol, you might get some stars. The probability of receiving stars depends on the level of the bar.
