June 8th, 2016

  • Balance Change
  • We felt the previous changelog was a bit too brief, so we wanted to clarify
    • Things have changed

June 7th, 2016

June 6th, 2016

  • We've tweaked how bullet penetration works:
    • Bullet penetration is (and has always been) bullet health
    • Before: Bullets would always deal their entire damage, even if they had little health left
    • After: Bullets now deal a proportional amount of damage if they're about to die while dealing that damage
    • This has some deep changes in how bullet penetration plays out in a few scenarios, so let us know what you think
    • It should make bullets behave more fairly when two players have different penetration values
    • This change actually affects anything that deals damage on touch, be it tanks or drones. It also means that body damage also decreases damage taken
    • Thus we have also adjusted some other values in the game to offset this change
  • New class: Hybrid branches off Destroyer
  • New class: Manager, branches off Overseer
  • Nerfed Stalker fade out time
  • New unnamed class which branches off Destroyer
    • Please don't spam the subreddit with suggestions for the name

June 2nd, 2016

  • New game mode: Domination
    • Two teams compete for control of the Dominators, powerful guns that will insta-kill any nearby enemy

May 29th, 2016

    • For now the only new game mode is "Team DM", which is basically FFA played with teams
