Highlights

  • All weapons that were previously Tier 4 have been reverted back to Tier 4 with some additional tuning done on a few weapons.
  • Adjustments to E.D.A.R.s to improve their experience
  • Improvements to the lag and hitches experienced during gameplay

Balance

Offperk

9MM Pistol and Dual 9MM Pistols

  • Upgrade to Tier 1 damage modifier reduced from 1.3x to 1.2x
  • Upgrade to Tier 2 damage modifier reduced from 1.6x to 1.4x
  • Upgrade to Tier 3 damage modifier reduced from 1.9x to 1.6x
  • Upgrade to Tier 4 damage modifier reduced from 2.2x to 1.8x
  • Upgrade to Tier 5 damage modifier reduced from 2.5x to 2.0x

Designer Note - The 9MM Pistol and Dual 9MM Pistols were powerful due to their upgrade damage modifiers. We adjusted them down as the weapon is not meant to be a main weapon to kill all Zeds, but rather, a backup weapon. The adjustments should allow it to still be applicable to most Zeds without it being a weapon that can dispatch large Zeds easily.Firebug

Microwave Gun

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4
  • Base Weight is now 9
  • Stream damage is now 16
  • Alt-Fire blast damage is still 210

Huskcannon

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4
  • Base charge damage is now 80. Full Charge damage is now 360
  • Max ammo reduced from 280 to 260
  • Upgrade to Tier 5 damage modifier reduced from 1.115x to 1.1x

Berserker

Eviscerator

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4
  • Saw blade projectile damage is now 300
  • Base Weight is now 9
  • Amount of gas ammo from ammo boxes is still 50
  • Bonecrusher
  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4
  • Bash damage is now 165
  • Heavy swing damage is now 175
  • Base Weight is now 8
  • Purchase cost is now 1600

Static Strikers

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4
  • Heavy attack emp power reduced from 49 to 45
  • Heavy attack knockdown power reduced from 150 to 90
  • Purchase cost is now 1600

Designer Notes - The Eviscerator was a weapon that was highly effective against small and large Zeds. The adjustments made should help reduce that effectiveness against the larger Zeds while keeping the same consistent gameplay behavior for the smaller Zeds. We also made adjustments to the incapability of the Static Strikers. It should still be able to incap most Zeds while allowing larger Zeds to be more threatening. Before, it’s high incapability shut down Scrakes and Fleshpounds with too much ease.

Sharpshooter

Railgun

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4
  • Base Weight reduced from 10 to 9
  • Manual fire Damage reduced from 750 to 560
  • Homing fire damage reduced from 375 to 280
  • Total ammo increased from 21 to 33
  • Ammo cost reduced from 25 per mag to 20 per mag
  • Upgrade to Tier 5 damage modifier raised from 1.1x to 1.25x

M99 AMR

  • Set as a Tier 5 weapon
  • Removed ability to upgrade
  • Total ammo reduced from 31 to 21
  • Ammo cost raised from 25 per mag to 50 per mag
  • Purchase cost is now 2500

Designer Note - The Railgun and M99 are extremely powerful weapons, and both mechanically serve the same purpose. We adjusted them both so that the Railgun is a more weaker, safer alternative to use versus the high-risk, high-reward gunplay of the M99. We will do further adjustments depending on the community feedback from the Beta 2 patch.

Support

AA12

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

Doomstick

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4
  • Ammo cost raised from 25 per mag to 40 per mag
  • Max ammo reduced from 76 to 44
  • Upgrade to Tier 5 damage modifier reduced from 1.17x to 1.1x
  • Purchase cost is now 1500

Designer Note - The Doomstick was a powerhouse of damage with a high enough ammo pool to warrant it as an exceedingly effective gun. It should still be a high-damage weapon, but we adjusted the ammo and ammo price per magazine so that it is not a sustainable weapon to use for any situation. It’s main purpose is to kill larger Zeds.

Commando

Perk Skill “FallBack”

  • 9MM and Knife damage reduced from 110% to 50%

SCAR-H Assault Rifle

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

Stoner 63A LMG

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

SWAT

Perk Skill “Close Combat Training”

  • 9MM and Knife damage reduced from 110% to 50%

Kriss SMG

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

Field Medic

HMTech-401 Assault Rifle

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

Hemogoblin

  • Bullet damage reverted from 70 to 50. This will also reduce bleed DOT damage and the toxic DOT damage from the Perk skill, Acidic Rounds
  • Upgrade to Tier 4 damage modifier reduced from 1.6x to 1.4x

Designer Note - We are lowering the damage of the Hemogoblin because it’s main functionality is not damage. Rather, the weapon is meant to be used to debilitate Zeds. We are currently looking into improving that experience. As for now, we adjusted the damage down, and it should reduce the likelihood of enraging Scrakes and Fleshpounds accidentally in the meantime.

Gunslinger

AF2011-A1

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

Dual AF2011-A1

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

.500 Magnum Revolver

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

Dual .500 Magnum Revolver

  • Reverted stats back to Tier 4

Demolitionist

RPG-7

C4

  • Removed ability to upgrade

Zeds

All E.D.A.Rs

  • Base chest armor health reduced from 500 to 225
  • Base head armor health increased from 550 to 600
  • Base body health increased from 562 to 775
  • Base sprint speed increased from 550 to 600
  • Base sprint distance increased from 1500 to 5000
  • Base critical hit zone damage on core increased from 1.4x to 3.5x
  • Critical hit zone core located in the center area once chest armor is destroyed.
  • Base fire damage vulnerability increased from 0.75x to 1.5x
  • Base microwave damage vulnerability increased from 2.0x to 3.25x

E.D.A.R. Trapper

  • Max attack range of EMP Beam decreased from 4000UU to 550UU

Designer Note - E.D.A.R.s were difficult to kill because of their high armor health values. We lowered the chest armor health and increased the damage modifier of their core to promote destroying the chest armor and shooting the core. The further adjustments should make them easier to dispatch while keeping their gameplay challenge the same. And lastly, we reduced the range of the E.D.A.R.s Trapper’s EMP Beam to help alleviate their frustration while we currently work on a fix for the bug where their beam goes through environment objects.

Upgrade System

  • Upgrade sell values for singles and dualies lowered from 75% to values between ~15% and ~40% of original upgrade prices. This does not affect the dual 9MM pistols.

Designer Note - This is a temporary solution to make it harder to exploit from a trick with upgraded singles and dualies that allowed users to earn more dosh than intended. We are working to implement a better fix for the release of the patch.

Maps

Zedlanding

  • Global spawn rate increased slightly

Weekly Outbreak

Cranium Cracker

  • E.D.A.R.s temporarily removed. This will cause Stalkers and Husks to also be temporarily removed because E.D.A.R.s share the same spawn pool as Stalkers and Husks.
