Weapons[edit]

  • KBR Longshot:
    • Damage from 125 to 115
    • Refire rate from 0.35 sec to 0.4s
    • Mods:
      • Burst:
        • Burst interval from 0,08 to 0,12
        • Refire from 0.525 to 0.8

Dev Comments: We keep finding some weird combos of weapons/mods which are wonky at best and essentially too good/powerful.

  • KARLA:
    • Direct damage from 300 to 200
    • AoE damage from 200 to 250
    • AoE radius from 3.75m to 4.25m
    • Spread decrease delay from 1.65s to 1.4s
    • Spread decrease from 7.5 to 6.5
    • Spread in-air penalty from 2x to 1.5x

Dev Comments: KARLA was under-performing for an 800c weapon and did not appropriately reward skilled play or fit any particular playstyle.
