The incoming Xylander (named after German general Wolf-Dietrich von Xylander) update brings two new special edition weapons and a few variations for the MP 40.

P08 Parabellum – ‘Eisernes Kreuz’ edition

This update introduces a new exclusive version of the P08 pistol. Customizing pistols by adding new grips or modifying the existing ones was something that officers sometimes did. Here is the first one we’re adding to the game. The ‘Eiserne Kreuz’ (Iron Cross) edition of the P08.

The pistol has an ivory handle with an embedded black iron cross placed so it is visible even when you hold the pistol in your hand in game.
