For 9/30, the Infection has broken out once again, to infect the good people of Warhead. A new, high stakes mode has been added to test your skills. Luckily, in this time of need, Central Command has you covered with a new set of weapons, items, and fashionable headwear to help you out. Good luck Soldiers!
Quarantine Mode spreads to other maps
Quarantine Mode is now available on Warhead!
New Modes on Overdose
One Man Army and Elimination are now available on Overdose!
Teams Alpha and Bravo square off in fights to the death! Each player has only one life per round to kill all of the opposition before time runs out to win the round and score a point. To win the game, your team must reach the score goal before the enemy can. This battle is designed to reward teamwork and efficient strikes, truly a test of a soldier's skill and precision!
The HiSec Case
A HiSec Case is a special item that is dropped in-game when you or your opponents are killed, appearing in all modes except Fireteam. It comes in two varieties, Gray and Black, and when opened will randomly give you one of a large variety of rare items. More information about the HiSec Case can be found here.
