[PS4] Crossout 1.61
New map “Sandy gulf”
The map is an open area, with its main advantage being good visibility from any point, which will allow you to quickly get the required tactical information. There is a number of sniper positions for ranged combat, and the perimeter is made so that fast vehicles can efficiently break into the enemy’s flank.
- The map is included in the rotation of the “Mission” mode
- Battles on the map are based on the “Assault” scenario
Additional story campaign “Contagion”
- With update 1.61, we are presenting three additional story tasks for the “Adventure” mode. In the future, we plan to increase their number.
- An additional story campaign is unlocked after the completion of the task “Wretched hole” in the main “Awakening” chain. Please note that the last task becomes available only after completing the “Experiment” task.
- The “Contagion” campaign's tasks can be replayed, while in the group. For this, it is necessary that the leader of the group accepting the tasks has not completed them yet. You can also reset the progress of your own story campaign after completing the main tasks.
- The additional campaign is automatically available to those players who did not reset the progress of their own story campaign.
Now, if a player or an entire team intentionally quit at the beginning of the battle (unsportsmanlike behaviour), their access to “Clan battles” is blocked for a short period. The blocking also extends to cases where all team members self-destruct at the beginning of a battle.
Now, melee weapons can deal damage to enemy turrets in raids, even if they only reach the base of the turret.
- Now, with each new level of prestige in the “Firestarters” faction, the player will get random structural parts from the following list (until all the parts are received):
- “Left Death fender” and “Right Death fender” — 1 pc. (both parts are issued for one level of prestige)
- “Finale” — 1 pc.
- “The Omen” — 1 pc.
- Thus, all structural parts can be obtained for 3 levels of prestige with the Firestarters faction.
- Attention! The parts are issued for each new level of prestige obtained after the update. Prestige levels received before the update are not counted, and the parts are not given for them.
- If you purchased the “Horsemen of Apocalypse: Death” pack, then if you increase the level of prestige with the Firestarters faction, additional structural parts will not be issued.
Melee weapon “Harvester”
- Base damage reduced by 25%.
- Now the “Harvester” deals 160% more damage to enemies under the influence of negative effects, as well as heated vehicle parts.
- Reduced ram damage dealt by the Harvester.
Developer comment: The latest balance changes of the “Harvester” partially solved the problem with its excessive efficiency at low PS values, however, this is not enough to achieve the goal. We also take into account the need to preserve the effectiveness of weapons at high PS, so we compensate for the reduction in base damage by increasing the damage from the perk.
Shotgun spread increased by 25%.
Developer comment: After evaluating the current statistics and your feedback, we came to the conclusion that, despite its high spread, “Junkbow” can still be used for precise shots aimed at weapons and it can disarm the enemy too quickly. This does not correspond to our vision of single-shot improvised shotguns, and therefore we decided to increase its spread.
Autocannon “AC43 Rapier”
Autocannon projectile explosion radius increased by 20%.
Developer comment: The current effectiveness of the “Rapier” is a little low compared to other rare weapons, especially at medium PS. Therefore, we increased the autocannon projectile explosion radius.
Harpoon “Skinner” and minelayer “Kapkan”
Now, if the enemy trapped in the “Kapkan” or hit by “Skinner”, has been destroyed, the owner of the harpoon or the minelayer gets the assistance credit.
“Mandrake” howitzer and “Incinerator” catapult
Improved aiming mechanics for howitzers and catapults. The changes touch upon the scope's sensitivity and the camera's behaviour when the aiming mode is toggled.
Drones “Sidekick” and “Fuze” and “Barrier IX” turret
Reduced the size of the containers
