WEAPONS + ITEMS Bug Fixes
- Fixed weapons floating in the air under certain network conditions after quickly switching between items.
Guided Missile weapon fixes:
Eliminating a downed player with a Guided Missile no longer reports as a self-elimination.
Picking up an item at the same time as firing a Guided Missile will no longer cause the picked up item to disappear.
Firing a Guided Missile prior to the victory screen displaying will no longer prevent the player from returning to the lobby.
Players will now correctly spectate the player that eliminated them instead of spectating their own active missile.
While spectating a player that fires a missile, you will now follow the missile instead of the player.
Fixed an issue that caused the player to spectate a floating Guided Missile weapon on the starting island if they were eliminated by a missile during the match.
Fixed an issue preventing the player from firing a guided missile while riding a guided missile.
Fixed an issue causing the player’s nameplate to display over the guided missile while controlling it.
Fixed an issue where the Rare Scoped Assault Rifle was incorrectly giving an Epic version of Vending Machines.
Fixed an issue causing the Loot Llama to be empty in Limited Time Modes.
- Limited Time Mode: 50V50 v2
Two teams of 50 fight to the finish!
Due to this being a “large squad” mode, Profile Stats will not be tracked. Daily & Weekly challenges will still work, with the exception of the Squad-based challenges (‘Place Top 6 in Squads’, etc.).
Storm & Map
Each team has a bus, approaching the island from opposite directions. On the map, the friendly bus has a blue outline, an enemy has red.
Final storm circle visible on the minimap at the start.
Players have 10 minutes to loot the map as the storm closes in on the circle, then 5 minutes to fight, and another 5 minutes as the storm shrinks to the end.
Supply drops come in batches of 3-6, fall every two minutes, and the only land in the final storm circle.
Added a dotted line to map, which indicates the “battle lines” between the two teams. Crossing the line will make running into enemies more likely.
Farming resources increased 75% over default.
Increased floor loot spawn likelihood by 15%.
Floor Loot spawns double ammo.
Ammo boxes spawn triple ammo.
Chests spawn double ammo & consumables.
Supply drops spawn double ammo, and an extra consumable, resource drop and trap.
Bug Fixes + Mode Improvements
Fixed a bug that created uneven teams where one side could have more than 50 players.
Downed players lose health more quickly than normal (10 health per tick).
New ‘Builder Pro’ controller configuration
This configuration is similar to “Combat Pro”, but optimized for fast placement of building pieces.
Wall, floor, stairs, and roof have designated buttons on controllers.
The first button press will switch to the mapped building piece, then every press after will place that piece.
To switch between materials or traps, press the Left D-Pad button.
New Squad Comms wheel
This allows you to communicate quickly without a voice.
The following callouts are currently available:
Enemy Spotted, Need Meds, Need Shields, Need Materials, Need Weapon (context-sensitive), and Need Ammo (context-sensitive).
Defaults to ‘V’ key, Right D-Pad on the controller, or in the Emote menu on Mobile.
The Loot Llama can now be opened through destruction as well as an interaction.
Added a blue tint to friendly traps to help distinguish them from enemy traps.
