FRAG Pro Shooter - 1.5.9 Patch Notes

We're very excited to announce that a super special update is here! First of all, Happy Birthday, FRAG and Happy Birthday, dear FRAG community!


Update 1.5.9 isn't just a new version, it's also a celebration of how much we've grown together during this first year - so let's get into it!



New Mode



FRAG just got even more fun, everyone, because the new 2v2 mode is here! You can now form decks and teams with a friend and play against 2 others.


Strategize, socialize, and make new friends!



Anniversary Event & Skins


To celebrate the FRAG Anniversary, we're also introducing a unique 2-round event, inside which you will find a wheel containing prizes like gold, skin coins, cards, and a new in-game currency called Joker Cards!



Joker Cards work for upgrading any card, even legendary ones! Depending on the quality of your card, the amount of Joker ones you’ll need will be different.


There are 16 items in the wheel, and you can unlock a prize by using tickets gained in 2v2 matches to spin the wheel! As you unlock them, their slots will turn grey. The event can be finished over and over again, but the price for spinning the wheel will get higher and higher.


1st Anniversary Round: 03/04/2020 - 07/04/2020 2nd Anniversary Round: 17/04/2020 - 21/04/2020


Besides this, we've also worked on 33 new Anniversary skins, that you can either gain as a prize in the wheel starting with 1.5.9, or buy in-game for 150 skin coins starting from May 1st!

New Fragger: R0N1N


And now, the cherry on top: a new, unique Epic character, R0N1N, that comes with his own event, just like Dr. Crow.

R0N1N is a great close-range Wildcard character that won’t think twice when striking his enemies with his samurai sword, so don't get too close to him when you see him in battle.


Like last time, this is a 2-round event lasting 3 days each.


1st R0N1N Round: 10/04/2020 - 12/04/2020

R0N1N will become available in chests starting from May 4th.
