“Third half” pack

Attention! The pack is a temporary offer. You can purchase it from July 22 to August 18, 20:59 GMT.

Don't miss out on joining an army of football fans in the Wasteland and become the owner of a unique armoured “Fan Van”!

The pack includes:

  • Unique armoured car: “Fan van”;
  • Unique legendary horn: “Vuvuzela”;
  • Unique legendary decor: “Black and Blue” flare; and “Red Eye” flare;
  • Unique character portrait: Hector;
  • Unique relic stickers: “Ball in the game”;
  • A spray can with unique relic paint: “To the championship!” ;
  • Maximum number of parts increased to 40;
  • 500 in-game coins.

New map “Crater”

A crater about 500 m in diameter. A space shuttle was found in the centre of the crater, but the width of the cavity is too large for such an object. It was probably formed much earlier and for reasons unrelated to the crash of the ship. 

The map is an open area, the main advantage of which is excellent visibility from any position. The main landmark is a crater occupying an ample space on the map. The bridge on the edge helps in navigation and allows for manoeuvring under it and between the columns. The central zone is the most open part of the "Crater" with a capture point inside. In the centre you can see the nomad tech, serving as cover for those capturing the point.

  • If the replacement of doubling CK for the container didn’t happen - please, contact the technical support unit.

Premium subscription

  • “New scanner” is now called “Premium subscription”.
  • For your convenience, new subscription options have been added to the in-game store. Full list of available Premium subscription options:

  • The brawl “Big black scorpions” now has the following maps added to the rotation: “Control Station-17”, “Founders Canyon” and “Desert Valley”.

Bedlam

The following maps have been added to the rotation of the mode: “Rock City”, “Nameless Tower” and “Bridge”.

Invasion

  • The tower in the “Invasion” is replaced by three towers with a shared durability pool. The destruction of one of the towers will lead to a decrease in the total durability pool by a third. Now players have more chances for successful completion of the mode even in the case of the emergence of leviathans with explosive spears.
  • Now the destruction of each enemy in the mode is accompanied by the appearance of ammunition/shells to replenish ammo.

Raids

“Perimeter breach”

  • Cargo durability is reduced at all raid difficulty levels.
    • “Easy” — by 33%.
    • “Normal” — by 25%.
    • “Hard” — by 20%.
  • Changed raider spawn points.

“The last convoy” and “Gone in two minutes”

At the “Normal” difficulty level, the truck's durability is reduced by 9%.

“Data theft”

  • “Normal” difficulty level: tower durability reduced by 25%.
  • Difficulty level: “Hard”: tower durability reduced by 20%.

“Steel cradle”

  • The durability of the leaders of the Raiders is reduced by 20%. 
  • Damage done by the ringleaders is increased by 1,5 times.

Clan battles

  • Reduced the duration of the intro. The player is no longer shown his team members.
  • Now points are awarded for effective actions in overtime in Clan battles.

Cabins

Ghost

  • Cabin power increased by 7%.
  • Tonnage increased by 9% (from 5500 to 6000 kg.).
  • The maximum weight is increased by 9% (from 11,000 to 12,000 kg.).

Developer comment: It is not a secret that among “medium” cabs there are those that are closer in their parameters to light ones and those that are closer to heavy cabins. With these changes, we would like to shift the “Ghost” towards heavier cabins capable of carrying more parts. We will monitor how changes affect the efficiency of the cabin and will be ready to make additional changes.

Howl

  • Now the damage from the perk increases if there are enemies within a radius of 30 meters (previously — 20 meters).
  • Maximum damage bonus reduced from 25% to 20%.

Developer comment: The current situation is such that the cabin's perk is challenging to implement with such close-range weapons as shotguns, due to its insufficient range. We would like to make using perks easier for the owners of "Howl" and shotguns, and therefore we increase its radius. This change will require a small reduction in bonus damage to compensate for increased efficiency.  

Weapons

Revolver “Corvo”

  • Firing range increased by 20%.
  • Gun accuracy increased by 10%.

Developer comment: Changes from the previous update had a positive effect on the revolver, but statistics show that it needs additional improvements. Increasing the accuracy and range of fire will have a positive impact on the gun, and it will be more consistent with its role as an accurate revolver. 

Plasma gun “Quasar”

Changed the physical model of the weapon.

Minigun “Arbiter”

Now the maximum bonus damage from the perk is accumulated over 7 seconds. (previously — 10 sec.).

Developer comment: In its current version, the maximum benefit from the perk of the "Arbiter" is quite tricky to use. The maximum increase in damage is accumulated slowly and requires the player to have a lot of experience and to choose the right position. The change simplifies this task and increases the efficiency of the minigun, but it is still worth remembering that the "Arbiter" is not a weapon for the front line. Competent choice of position in a team battle is one of the keys to success with miniguns. 

“Reaper” minigun

Weapon durability increased by 15% (from 450 to 520 units).

Developer comment: The previous increase in the durability of the minigun naturally increased the effectiveness of the weapon in battle, but its survival rate in the average fight still does not meet our expectations. Extra durability is meant to solve this problem. 

Shotgun “Hammerfall”

Changed the perk. Now it works as follows: “Every 100 meters passed by the car, give 1 charge, which is spent when fired and guaranteed to turn off the enemy’s weapon rotation for 0.5 s. Maximum 1 charge.”

Developer comment: we consider gameplay with shotguns as constant movement and manoeuvring close to the enemy. Given this, we have reworked the perk of the "Hammerfall". Now players can accumulate charges in the heat of battles and continue to control the enemy. Previously, this was difficult because of the considerable distance that needed to be driven to get a new charge. 

Plasma gun “Pulsar”

Reload time increased by 11% (from 4.5 to 5 sec.).

Developer comment: The combination of severe damage and excellent durability provides the Pulsar with increased efficiency compared to other "legendary" weapons. A slight increase in the reload time of the gun will reduce the total damage dealt by cars with "Pulsars" in battle, and will allow you to balance the weapon relative to other arms of the same rarity. 

Decor

  • Now all non-tradeable decor, obtained earlier and which will be received in the future, will not occupy space in storage.
  • The descriptions of such parts, as well as other items that do not occupy space in the warehouse, now display relevant information.

Hardware

“Neutrino” scope

The minimum zoom of the sight increased by 8%.

  • Added in-game surveys
    • When you first start the game after the update, you will be invited to take part in surveys to improve the quality of the game and deliver feedback to the development team.
    • If you refused to participate in surveys, and then changed your mind, you can turn on polls in the menu “Settings” - “General” - “Game” - “Enable surveys”.
  • Updated interface showing the current durability of the armoured vehicle. 
  • The descriptions of scopes now have information about their zoom.
  • Now for the observers in "Custom battle" all the participants in the battle, as well as their drones and turrets, are highlighted with coloured frames that are visible through the objects of the environment. 
  • Now, with each exit from the “Adventure” mode, the player is shown a screen of results and current progress in the mode.
  • The storage interface has updated icons for the parts that are currently in use.
  • Updated many small interface elements. 
  • Now the leader of the group will see the nickname of a specific player who currently cannot fight in the notification.

  • Added new sound effects for environment objects at the “El Diablo Gorge” location.
  • All sounds of machine guns in the game are transferred to the new system. The sound of a machine gun is no longer one pre-recorded loop. Each shot is formed from separate sound files. This gives more variability and reduces the likelihood of sound artefacts. 
  • Added option to disable the stun effect (Settings - Audio - Stun effect).
  • Added an option that allows you to turn off the playback of all sounds in the game (improves game performance on budget computers).
  • Added option to limit the number of simultaneously played sounds (improves game performance on budget computers).
  • Updated the sound of firing the “Reaper”.
  • The sound of the Minigun “PU13 Equalizer” firing has been updated.

  • Improved the model of “Howl”.
  • Improved appearance of fire pools.
  • The effects of shell and bullet flight for “Spectre-2”, “ZIS-34 Fat Man”, “Reaper”, “Mandrake”, all automatic guns are improved.

  • Fixed a bug where the hit of a "ZIS-46 Mammoth" projectile to the decor was counted as a miss. 
  • Fixed a bug where the incorrect current status of the player could be displayed when he was added to "Custom battle". 
  • Fixed a bug with the incorrect collision of environmental objects on the "Nameless Tower" map. 
  • Fixed a bug where you could get stuck in some objects of the environment on the map “Rock City”.
  • Fixed a bug where at the beginning of the mission “Urgent Delivery” in Adventure, cars on augers could get stuck in the landscape.
  • Fixed bugs with drawing objects of the environment and their incorrect location on the maps: “Factory”, “Old Town”, “Founders canyon”.
  • Fixed a bug with the presence of invisible walls on the map “Cursed mines”.
  • Updated “Founders Canyon” mini-map.
  • Fixed several bugs associated with incorrect spawn points of raiders on maps. 
  • Corrected and improved some text strings. 
  • Fixed a bug where you could enter a battle on a car with an excess of the weight limit.
  • Fixed a bug with incorrect display of clan tags.
  • Fixed a bug where changing chat languages could lead to their simultaneous work.
  • Fixed incorrect behaviour of raiders in the "Adventure" mode. 
  • Corrected the accuracy parameter of the “Elephant” cannon in the weapon characteristics window.
  • Fixed a bug related to the absence of rolling sounds in some game clips. 
  • The bug with incorrect display of the zone where invisible players are by the “Oculus” in the observer mode has been fixed.
  • Fixed a bug where the sensitivity of the mouse in observer mode changed while observing a player with Mandrake in aiming mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the turrets, drones and automatic weapons “Caucasus” could not respond to objects in the “Adventure” mode.
  • Fixed a bug in which the final sound of the hologram “Carnivore” was played after its removal from the car.
  • Fixed a bug where disabling chat in battle did not lead to hiding all messages.
  • Fixed a bug where a “Custom battle” was launched without waiting for at least one connected player.
  • Fixed an issue where the reload enhancement of the “Nidhogg” shotgun did not work in motion.
  • Fixed a bug with broken links to leviathans from the exhibition.
  • Fixed a bug where the “Backstab” patch was issued for the destruction of drones.

Attention!

After analyzing the results of the latest mass testing, we decided to postpone several changes to later updates:

  • We are not cancelling the to change the “Scorpion”, thanks to which it will stop dealing 100% damage to penetrable parts. We are still planning to add the change to the game, but in parallel we want to modify the physical model of the gun and make it smaller (just like with the “Quasar”). We would not like to make these changes separately from each other, so you should expect them in one of the upcoming updates.
  • The change hover intertia is also still planned, but needs some work. We would like to achieve completely satisfactory behavior of hover vehicles, where they'd be able to climb on inclined surfaces not due to inertia, but due to traction (like cars with wheels) and, at the same time, would not be able to climb into places on maps inaccessible to other movement parts.

Hotfix, 23.07.2019

  • Fixed a bug with incorrect statistics calculation in personal survivor's file.
  • Fixed a bug, when the daily challenge on 5 completed daily tasks was impossible to achieve. Please note that if you have already completed all available daily tasks, this challenge will not be completed automatically. It will not be possible to complete the challenge until tomorrow, when the list of daily tasks is updated.
  • Fixed a bug with incorrect colour indication of personal score in the "Steel championship" brawl.
  • Fixed a couple of artworks for tutorial tasks.

Small update, 25.07.2019

  • Fixed a couple of graphics bugs
  • Improved client stability.
