The new update for Heroes & Generals sees soldiers strutting down a runway while wearing the latest fashions -- wait, it's Xylander, not Zoolander? Sorry, easy mistake to make.

Start over: The Xylander update for Heroes & Generals gives the Soviet army the AVS-36 automatic rifle, akin to the ones given to the Americans and Germans in the last update. There's a little behind-the-scenes tweaking going on as well, to ensure that War Battles, which are set up by player generals and can be unbalanced, are a little less unbalanced, with the unbalanced battles being auto-resolved. There are also extra bonuses to XP for players participating in War Battles and base salary is dependent on how long you play, rather than for just showing up for a few seconds.

Toss in a few weapon skins and camouflage uniforms, and you can make your soldier look totally fabulous. You can read the full list of changes here.

By the way, the salary before the update was never gained by "showing up for a few seconds", you had to be in the battle for half the battle or 10 minutes; the update just allows you actually get money based how time and you can actually get more than before for being in lengthy battles and destroying stuff.
