Ability Balance Changes As part of the Hero Loadout changes, we’ve adjusted balance game-wide. As a result, we’ve changed a few abilities balance to bring them more in line with our new models. Going forward, we have a much better baseline to adjust abilities in the future.

  • Constructor
    • Bull Rush
      • Reduced base damage from 156 to 104
      • Now deals environment damage by default (251 base environment damage)
    • D.E.C.O.Y.
      • Reduced base duration from 7 seconds to 6 seconds
        • Decoy now has easier access to perks that reduce its cooldown and increase duration. This change was made to lessen the frequency of 100% decoy uptime in a team environment while still enabling a powerful source of crowd control.
    • Plasma Pulse
      • Increased base damage per hit from 18 to 46
        • Plasma Pulse has been underperforming for a long time. This boost to damage should make it a competitive option for Constructors
    • R.O.S.I.E.
      • Increased base damage from 67 to 69
  • Outlander
    • Phase Shift
      • Increased energy cost from 10 to 15
        • Phase Shift now has easier access to a significant number of Perks that improve its performance. This was done to put more weight on energy management as opposed to just charges.
      • Reduced movement speed bonus from 33% to 30%
    • Seismic Smash (Previously : Seismic Impact)
      • Increased base damage from 98 to 114
    • Shock Tower
      • Reduced stun duration from 0.75s to 0.5s
    • T.E.D.D.Y.
      • Reduced damage per hit from 16 to 13
        • This change is to help promote active play while still enabling T.E.D.D.Y. builds.
  • Ninja
    • Crescent Kick
      • Increased base damage from 61 to 121
      • Increased impact from 750 to 800
      • Reduced stun duration from 3 seconds to 2.5 seconds
        • Crescent Kick still retains its identity as a quick stun ability, but now has significantly boosted damage component to make it a competitive combat option
    • Dragon Slash
      • Increased base damage from 94 to 115
    • Kunai Storm
      • Increased base damage from 128 to 184
        • Kunai Storm came in a little weaker than we liked, so we’re giving it a solid damage boost to compensate for the difficulty of using this ability
    • Smoke Bomb
      • Increased base damage per tick from 41 to 52
    • Throwing Stars
      • Increased base damage from 52 to 87
      • Increased cooldown from 6 seconds to 10 seconds
      • Now pierces enemies by default
      • Can no longer trigger headshot damage multiplier
        • Throwing stars have been a fairly niche ability, only being viable on a couple of Ninjas largely due to the lack of piercing. To make them more competitive, we replaced the lackluster headshot damage with piercing as part of the base ability and gave it a big damage boost.
  • Soldier
    • Frag Grenade
      • Reduced energy cost from 45 to 30
        • This allows you to use all 3 grenade charges in a row
      • Increased base damage from 101 to 103
      • Reduced impact from 595 to 500
    • Goin’ Commando
      • Reduced base damage from 25 to 23
    • Lefty and Righty
      • Increased base damage from 57 to 60
      • Reduced headshot damage bonus from 75% to 50%
    • Shockwave
      • Increased base damage from 91 to 102

New Perk / Hero Combinations!

All of the perks have been rebalanced, tweaked, and adjusted. We’ve also distributed them among all the existing heroes. Non gameplay-acquirable heroes will always be reskins of existing heroes. All Heroes now have a Standard Perk, which is granted to players regardless of where they are slotted in the hero loadout

  • Heroes slotted as your Commander will receive the “Commander Upgrade” modification to their Standard Perk listed below
    • Note - All Standard Perks without specific text indicating their Commander Upgrade provide upgrades to the numerical effectiveness of their Standard Perk when they are slotted as your commander..
    • In order to accommodate changes to the class perks, we’ve adjusted all the ability kits of heroes. Rather than listing the changes, we’re listing what every hero now has as their kit.

Soldiers

  • NEW - Class Perks
    • NEW Stay Frosty
      • After 3 eliminations with a ranged weapon, gain 35% weapon stability and increase ranged weapon damage by 10% for 7 seconds.
    • NEW Suppressive Fire
      • Each consecutive ranged weapon hit against the same target deals 3% increased damage. Stacks 5 times.
    • REMOVED Debilitating Shots
      • As the game evolves we re-evaluate how we design aspects of it. In this case, we believe Vulnerability works best when it’s limited to short windows which create opportunities for group burst damage. Freeze Traps are a great example of this. Sustained focus fire is still a strength of Soldiers, but by removing Debilitating Shots we’ll be able to better utilize Vulnerability to provide burst damage windows.
