Season’s greetings, and welcome to APB: Reloaded's Christmas 2016 event! Christmas dynamic events will be in Beacon this year. You can also still get standing with the Christmas Elves in the mission districts. Finally there’s the Secret Santa gift boxes that can be used to share weapons with your friends.
Free-for-all Event (no teams)
Kill other players to advance weapon tiers and earn prizes (see below).
At the start of the game, players are given a weapon and they must advance through the weapon tiers until they reach the final tier - the first person to get a kill with the final tier weapon wins the game.
The HUD will show remaining score required, current weapon tier, current place and remaining time.
When a player reaches the final tier, all players will be notified of who this player is.
12 Deaths of Christmas
Secret Santa Boxes:
You will earn Secret Santa Boxes based on your performance during the 12 Deaths of Christmas Event - the better you do, the more boxes you will earn. You can then take these boxes into the regular Action Districts. Please see "Secret Santa Event" below for more details.
Deck The Halls
Triggered by gaining score in the 12 Deaths of Christmas event, which is gained by Killing or Assisting during the minigame. As such, this is a grind-challenge which all players can get after enough time, though skilled players will complete it a lot faster. This replaces last year's event, rewarding our new clothing asset.
NOTE: Players do not earn Score towards "Deck The Halls" for vehicle kills
Pelt enemy players with snowballs to win prizes. Top prize gives you a Candy Cane Weapon Skin!
Take part in Snowball fights in the X-Mas Event district to complete this role. You get 1 point for participating in a snowball fight, and a bonus point if you win! Unlocks the Santa Hat, Reindeer Antlers and the Raptor 45 'Vulture'.
Secret Santa Event:
Players can now utilize the SECRET SANTA BOXES earned through the 12 DEATHS OF CHRISTMAS event (see above) in the main action districts.
Secret Santa Boxes are a new type of deployable that players can place at any location they please - other players can then interact with them to get randomly generated weapons as prizes.
Secret Santa Boxes:
When deployed, a Secret Santa Box appears in the player's hands (their interaction with this box is limited to dropping, picking up and moving it around).
Once the box is placed on the ground, all other players in the district (no faction restriction) can interact with the Secret Santa Box to win a random weapon, which will also have a random selection of modifications and a random skin.
NOTE: The player who placed the box can't take a prize.
Achievements and Rewards:
Ho Ho Ho, Now I have a ...

Returning Christmas Content - The Elves
Regular Action Districts - Elves:
As with all years, there are Christmas elves in Financial District. These elves can be pledged to by the appropriate faction (Criminelf for Criminals and Elforcer for Enforcers) and by playing missions while pledged to them you can level them in the same way as a normal contact. They unlock the following based on the level:
The Snowball Launcher and Snowball can be used to level the Snowball Fight role outside of the minigame.
Once the Elves have been completed they will also have a Daily Activity available for players to complete that is a repeatable challenge each day.
In addition to their progression, the elves also sell a number of unique titles
iii. The Red Nosed Criminal
iv. The Red Nosed Enforcer
All these titles can be bought from the Elves for 10 Joker Tickets (faction-specific titles are only for their respective faction)
