    • Slight adjustment to release angle and force behind throwing the drone
    • This will allow the drone the be thrown a little farther and feel friendlier
    • The goal ‘pickup’ radie to grab the drone has been increased slightly to make throws feel a little friendler to score
    • Make sure you head into Custom Games and turn on Practice Mode to get a feel for it!

Weapon Balance:

  • Mauler – Mammoth – Recoil increase
  • R.A.W. – Increased hip spread. Slight recoil increase.
  • Fists – No longer force a quick swap when in the secondary slot. This allows YY’ing to feel smoother.
  • DMR-1 – Now a 1 shot kill to the head
  • EBR-800 – Increased ADS recoil return speed to help with shot recovery
  • Akimbo – Slight reduction in damage range. Increase in hip spread scale

  • Hornet – Increased hip spread
  • Assault Rifles – Increased base hip spread for all ARs without special hip spread values. This includes the NV4, OSA, Type-2.
  • OSA – No longer has reduced hip spread relative to other Assault Rifles. Inherits the new values set on Assault Rifles in this patch. Increased recoil to compensate for high fire rate being used at range.
  • Kbar-32 – Increased hip spread values. These are still lower than the base Assault Rifle hip spread keeping with the weapon’s theme. No longer has a reduction in recoil off the first shot. Reduced 5 shot kill range.
  • Volk – Slight reduction in recoil. Increased 3 shot range.
  • R3K – Increased 3 shot kill range to help this weapon compete with other ARs

  • Double XP now applies to Match Bonus, Weapon Challenges and Challenges.
  • Fixed an issue where camo challenges requiring a 3-streak only required a 2-streak
