New Weapon Camos, Reactive Camos, and Reticles can also be unlocked with the update.

How to achieve a direct action kill

Now that you’re equipped with a new weapon, you might be wondering how to get direct action kills to get your hands on the Reactive Plasma Camo for the KN-57.

What you need to do is remove all attachments from your weapon, go into a Free for All match and kill an opponent with no assists. You should manage to get the five direct action kills you need in no time and get that fly reactive camo.

The new Contraband system has 100 Tiers designed to deliver a more diverse and exciting collection of items to earn, with themes built around every 25 Tiers and more opportunities to use personalization items in new ways.
