—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.


It is an automatic submachine gun with a ballistic 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.


Both weapons have blue color schemes. It is an automatic submachine gun and a ballistic shield. The shield has a viewport and Christmas tree on it.


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



  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • The armor bonus can be used to boost your armor.
  • The capacity isn't the best, so reload frequently.
    • Its reload speed is quite good, so you can reload anytime.
  • Switch to a high mobility weapon as this weapon's mobility isn't the best.
  • Use it in short to medium ranges.
  • It has high accuracy, so use this accuracy as your advantage to aiming for the opponent's head.
  • Shoot the enemy with a sniper and finish them off with this.
