Summer Week Event

Posted by: Sven on steam_community_announcements September 2, 2019

Dear Community,

(Original Post:

The time is finally there! Although summer is almost coming to an end we'd still like to bring back the summer feeling to you all with this fresh and shiny Summer Week Event! Based on feedback from the previous week events we have decided to have this event a bit longer: it will be for 2 weekends and an entire week in between! We have some very cool Competitive and Battle Royale events coming up and in addition to that, the usual Open World and Survival stuff. We'll not spoil too much for you so hold on and check the list below for all the events that are happening!

Before we jump into any event details let's make it clear over what period of time this event is taking place:


Start: September 6, 12:00 PM (CEST) 2019.

End: September 16, 12:00 PM (CEST) 2019.


Now, let's jump into the details of the event:


Double XP & GD:
  • During this summer week event there will be two Double XP & GD events. This means all experience and in-game dollars gained in all game-modes will be doubled.

    The first time Double XP & GD happens is on: (WEEKEND #1)
    Start: September 6, 12:00 (CEST) 2019.
    End: September 9, 12:00 (CEST) 2019.

    The second time Double XP & GD happens is on: (WEEKEND #2)
    Start: September 12, 12:00 (CEST) 2019.
    End: September 16, 12:00 (CEST) 2019.


Summer Content:
  • During the event we will release some new items. Here is a list and how to get them:

    All the new content:
    • Summer Box 2019:

      Will be available in the in-game marketplace and findable in-game but very rare.

    • Skins:

      The following will only be available from the Summer Box 2019.

    • Sprays:
      The following will only be available from the Summer Box 2019.

    • Character Clothes:
      Will only be available in the in-game marketplace.

    • Items:
      The following items will be ONLY available during the event:

      The following items will be released during the event but might return in the game at future points as well:


  • During this summer week event there will be advanced loot tables including all the items mentioned above spawning.
    All of the loot mentioned above will be spawning in both game-modes. However, for Survival, chances will vary and not be the same as in the Open World game-mode.
    This also includes:
    • Summer themed zombies. (all game-modes)


Summer Sales:
  • Throughout the entire event there will be special sales and flash sales. Stay tuned.


Summer Event Contract:
  • For the Summer Week event we will release a brand new contract. The contract is called: "Cool Down Challenge". This contract will be released in both Open World and Survival and will be findable + inside the contract boxes during this event only.

    The contract goes as following: Step 1: Eat 50 ice creams. Step 2: Drink 20 375 ml water bottles. After this the player will be rewarded with some XP and with a Summer Box 2019. Note: Players can do this contract over and over again. The contract is a physical item and can be kept / saved by players even when the event has ended.


Summer Secret Spots:
  • In both Open World and Survival there is special dedicated summer themed secret spots in Colorado V2, V1, Caliwood and Oregon. Now, you might have already found one of the spots as we have to patch these in during a patch before the event starts. However you will then have noticed that loot hasn't spawned there yet. Summer loot will simply be live on those locations as soon as the Summer Event starts. Once again for Survival chances will vary and not be the same as in the Open World game-mode.


Summer Themed Trading Lounge:
  • As you might have noticed, the trading lounge has already been updated to a summer themed on. This will be active during the Summer Week Event as well.


Summer Themed PVP Map:
  • In the Open World PVP Servers section we will release a brand new PVP map similar to the trading lounge map where players can fight other players.


Summer Giveaway:
  • During the summer event week we will be doing a special giveaway. This giveaway will go through New Z's social channels so make sure to follow us and stay tuned for further announcements.


Tropico Battle Royale:
  • The ultimate summer map Tropico will be back in the Summer Week Event! We will change the Battle Royale map rotation to Tropico and in addition to that, Battle Royale loot will temporarily be changed to Summer related stuff! It's going to be hilarious!

    Start: September 11, 12:00 (CEST) 2019.
    End: September 16, 12:00 (CEST) 2019.
