Balance Improvements — March 15, 2021

We have changed the distribution of weapon types between Primes.

We have released a minor server update with some major changes that will bring more variety to the gameplay and significantly improve balance. Check the details below.



NEW WEAPON TYPES DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM


Earlier, each Prime could use only two classes of weapons. For example, SHOCK was equipped with an assault rifle (main slot) and an SMG (extra slot). He could not use weapons of other types.


From now, each Prime can equip an assault rifle, a machine gun, a submachine gun, or a sniper rifle in the primary slot, as well as a handgun or a shotgun in the secondary slot. So, for example, you can equip SHOCK with a machine gun and a shotgun.


This change will provide more variable gameplay: the number of potential Prime builds will increase, taking into account the new weapon classes available to them.


Also, this change will improve the in-game balance. Right now some predefined combinations of Primes and weapons have a significant advantage over others.



ADDITIONAL CHANGES


Due to the changes mentioned above, we have also redesigned the starting weapons for some Primes.

  • The P1 handgun is equipped in the secondary slot by default instead of the SMG-10 submachine gun.

  • SMG-10 is now available at Account Level 7.

JUMPER:

We also swapped positions of the EZI submachine gun and SG870 shotgun in the account level:

  • EZI is now available at Account Level 15.

  • SG870 is now available at Account Level 1.


NOTE! Everything that was unlocked before the release of this balance update will remain with you. Besides, for each Prime available to you, the necessary starting weapon will be unlocked if you do not have it.

We will continue to monitor gameplay, accumulate and analyze data for further improvements of weapons balance. Also, we welcome your feedback on the latest changes in the game. You can share it in our official Discord.
