  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals increased damage.
  • Override: this vehicle's engine can be switched to override mode, which will significantly increase speed and acceleration.

Player recommendations[edit | edit source]

Pros and cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent camo and spotting range.
  • Powerful gun with a high accuracy and rate of fire.
  • Outstanding speed, acceleration and maneuverability.

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Negligible armor, vulnerable to all HEAT and kinetic rounds, including autocannons.
  • High profile.
  • No ERA or spaced armor.

Upgrade suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading smoke screens should be the top priority, as the K21 XC-8 entirely depends on remaining unseen for protection. This should be followed by engine and transmission upgrades, then APS and finally, firepower upgrades.

Retrofit suggestions[edit | edit source]

The first three retrofit slots should be used for the two spotting upgrades, as well as the stationary camo upgrade. After the universal retrofit slot is unlocked later down the line, it should be used to improve the (already high) reload speed to increase firepower.

Commander and crew skill suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to maximize spotting and camo stats;
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-road Driving;
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter.
