—Weapon's description in Gallery

The New Year Defender is a Backup weapon added in the 15.8.0 update. It can be obtained from the Trader's Van.

Description

It is an automatic submachine gun with a shield that protects the player. It has good damage, a fast fire rate, a small capacity, and average mobility. It is 8 - 9 shots with armor bonuses.

Appearance

It is an automatic submachine gun and a ballistic shield that is mainly blue. The shield has a Christmas tree on it as well.

Performance

The player holds on the right hand the automatic submachine gun and on the left hand the ballistic shield. The shield gives armor bonuses, while the automatic submachine gun shoots regular bullets with instant bullet travel time.

When reloading, the magazine from the bottom of the automatic submachine gun is taken out and is replaced by a spare magazine. This weapon has a fixed delay, which means it always has a delay whenever the player switches to this weapon.
