SOCOM: Confrontation is the most played online multiplayer game on the PlayStation Network. The SlantSix team recently detailed plans for an upcoming SOCOM tournaments. Also revealed are a few more details about updates to the game’s servers and how you can get your hands on some golden AK-47 rifles.

Starting soon, players will be able to go into the various SOCOM-related PlayStation Home spaces to complete some puzzles. Do so in time and your perseverance shall be rewarded – you will receive an in-game Golden AK-47. The devs at Slant Six have also announced that changes will take place to revamp how new games are spawned on the servers for medley game types, 4v4 and 8v8. Once the game reaches 75% of the room’s capacity, a new room will be automatically generated so people can stop worrying about fighting for those last positions.
