The Finals Update 1.10.0 (29 Feb 2024): Complete Details

Updates for The Finals are quite irregular but the developers are listening to the community's feedback and improving things to make the game function more smoothly.

The Finals Patch 1.10.0 is a significant update that was released earlier today 29th February 2024, Thursday. It brings a lot of content for players to enjoy and some quality changes to improve the overall gameplay.

Smoking Guns Event

This event follows an 'Old West' theme where players will be duking it out like proper gunslingers and outlaws on a new variant of Monaco but with limited loadouts at their disposal.

A new game mode called Single Round Tournament will be introduced to The Finals which was a fan favorite during the early days of the game's beta testing.

In this game mode, four teams of three players each will compete against each other in a single round, making for some intense action and genius outplays.

A special contract specific to this event has also been launched which upon completion shall reward players with the High Noon Noir Outfit.

Collaborative Community Event

This update brings along the first-ever community event for The Finals where players from around the world will need to work in unison to collectively cash out $250,000,000,000 within a week.

If the community is successful in achieving this feat within seven days then everyone will receive a special reward while a few lucky ones will also get a t-shirt as well.

The Finals Twitch Drop

A weapon charm called Chamber Chum is also being given away to players for free by the developers in the form of a Twitch Drop as part of the Smoking Guns event.

This item is available from 29th February 2024, Thursday to 7th March, Thursday and those interested simply need to watch any livestream of The Finals for three hours on Twitch to get it.

  • The Smoking Guns splash screen shows an incorrect end date and time. It reads '28th of February' but the event ends on the 7th March.
