Activities are time-limited missions or objectives featured in Modern Combat 5: Blackout which the player can complete to earn rewards such as Credits, Supply Packs, weapon blueprints, unique Armors, and Armor Cores. Events are accessed by clicking the Activities icon on the game's title screen.
These are various challenges which the player can complete either in the Campaign or in multiplayer (except for non-ranked multiplayer matches) in exchange for small amounts of Credits. They include various objectives - such as requiring the player to score a certain number of kills using a specific class, score a certain number multi-kills in the campaign, or win a certain number of specific match types (e.x. Team Battle, Capture the Flag, etc). A daily login reward is also featured here.
The Lottery Wheel is a feature which allows players to spin a roulette wheel to win prizes in exchange for watching a sponsored ad. The Lottery Wheel is accessed from the title screen and can be played several times each day; prizes available to win include free Power User status, Credits, Diamond Dust,T5, T6 and T7 weapon blueprints.
Like Timed Challenges, events also offer players a chance to earn special rewards by completing objectives in a limited period of time, however events typically offer items as prizes rather than credits (such as weapon blueprints, Skill Points, Armor Cores, and exclusive Armors such as the Oni and Kemono Armors).
Players are awarded prizes simply for participating and reaching a designated score. In addition, the player's final score at the end of the Event is ranked against that of every other player who participated; with top ranked players within certain ranking brackets (e.x. Rank 1-5, Rank 6-15, etc) receiving special prizes, such extra blueprints or rare armor parts.
These events typically require the player to complete specific objectives in the campaign (e.x. the "Reaper" event requires the player to perform headshots as a Heavy class in the campaign), or complete other solo activities - such as opening X number of Weapon or Armor Packs.
These events allow players to complete in Free-For-All matches in which Boosters can be purchased with Diamond Dust prior to the match (they can also be purchased after the match has started by opening the Menu).

Performing kills fills the meter, and once it is full the player's damage and speed is increased for the duriation of the meter or until the player is killed.
