Well, I hope all of you are having a great time. I haven't been active on the wiki as of late, but some important news drew me back here.
This article, released about a month back, announces that Gameloft has begun a soft-launch of the game on Android and and Windows. Here are the countries the soft launch reaches out to:

You can also now pre-order the game, and Gameloft promises you that you'll be eligible to receive prizes once the game fully launches.
Gameloft also published some gameplay footage, which you can check out here. I know this article is all over the place, but I hope you …

The eleventh update for Modern Combat 5: Blackout went live on September 21, 2016, and alongside a new game mode and the typical bug fixes, there's more under the skin than what meets the eye.
Gameloft added a new armor for the Sapper class, called the Vulcan Armor, as well as new camouflage patterns for said armor. The armor's unique special ability is immunity to all killstreaks apart from the Airstrike.
Also available for the Sapper, is the brand new Shotgun Turret, which can be upgraded seven times, like other Tier 7 weapons. A new helmet was also released for the Sapper, called the Shibing Helm, which gives the player a slightly increased melee range (sigh), but gives a 10% Weapon Score penalty, which will negatively affect the rate you u…

Modern Combat: Versus. The next chapter of the Modern Combat series. With many praises under its belt, the Modern Combat franchise has always stood as the definitive first-person shooter on the mobile platform to beat. However, since the release of Modern Combat 5: Blackout, the game took immediate criticism upon its release, and in my opinion, has only waned since its release, adding overpowered pay-to-win features in exchange for becoming freemium, making it hard for new and free-to-play players to keep grasp among the pros that actually pay for these items. So, while I may be excited for the new game, and have donated a wishlist to it, the game is drastically different compared to the game I was expecting. Before I start with my concern…Read more >
The sixth update for Modern Combat 5: Blackout dropped for iOS on March 14, 2016, and has gone live on Android a couple of days later.
Gameloft has completely changed the progression system in Modern Combat 5. Weapon score is no longer used to unlock weapons, instead, the player must acquire blueprints to unlock these weapons via Supply Packs, Elite Packs, or by playing online. The higher the tier, the more blueprints you will need to acquire in order to unlock. Therefore, you can unlock Tier 7 weapons by not even unlocking the Tier 6 weapons by just finding the Tier 7 blueprints.
]] There is also a new weapon upgrade system, and apart from upgrading your weapon with muzzles and magazines and whatnot, you can further upgrade your weapon usi…

Combat Tips for Modern Combat 5: Blackout. Better late than never.
- I recommend playing on a higher sensitivity, as Recon players can strafe at running speed while shooting with one of the skills in the skill tree.
- Avoid aiming down sights at close-range - it will decrease your sensitivity and your reaction time will be greatly slowed.
- When a noob has broken out an LGR 35, always stay as far away from the user as possible.
- Always go for headshots - a single headshot can end a gunfight very quickly.
- When facing a team of campers, and when all in a building, cook a high-damage grenade, like the Nail grenade, and throw it inside. You will likely kill all of them if aimed correctly.
- If trying to traverse longer distances, switch to your pistol - but…
