PATCH 16.2.0

WEAPONS

We’ve increased projectile speeds for the assault rifles a little bit.

  • The experience was that players had to still strongly lead their shots. We’ll keep an eye out and hope to find a great middle ground. Additionally, we also lowered the targeting bloom for the assault rifles.

Kor-47

  • Projectile speed increased from 300 to 350

Advocate

  • Projectile speed increased from 330 to 390

Manticore 

  • Projectile speed increased from  150 to 250

Basilisk

  • Lowered the Recoil on the basilisk.

Gorgon

We’ve changed the Zeus and Revitalizer beam and we like to try to translate this into the gorgon as well. This means that the beam will react faster to your movement while firing. So we increase the fire rate and lower the damage.

  • Refire time decreased from 0.213 to 0.03 (Faster Fire Rate)
  • Direct damage decreased from 26 to 12
  • Burst interval changed from 0.05 to 0.027 (Shorter time between bursts)
  • Burst amount increased from 6 to 15
  • Ammo count increased from 36 to 90

Mods
Crossed Resistor

  • Direct weapon damage lowered by 50% is now lowered by 20%
  • Does not remove the initial spinup anymore.

Detonator

  • Radial damage reduced 400 to 375

Mods
Mortar launcher

  • Explosive radial reduction of 25% removed.

Maelstrom

  • Reload time reduced from 2.75 to 2.2
  • Refire time decreased from 0.47 to 0.42 (Faster Fire Rate)

Gearstore

Bulldog, Kor-47 and Advocate

  • The shredder mods now mirror the other mods to add 10% on each weapon.

Guarantee

  • Light container and Battery Belt mod name and description updated to reflect their perks.

CONTRACT ADJUSTMENTS

  • Zeal pickup VO will only play for the player that picked it up
  • Zeal drop damage threshold only counts damage from players, not creatures
  • Delayed Uplink activation across game modes to 2 mins and active time before rotating to 6 mins
  • Cycle Spike has been tuned to happen a little bit later in the match
  • Probability of having a Cycle Spike is now increased or decreased based on what other Contracts are active in the match
    • Base probability of 75%
    • -25% if either Hunt or Powerup is in the match
    • -50% if both are active

MAPS

  • The train rails in Bright Sands and Crescent Falls have changed a bit

MISC

  • “Help!” VO has a 20s cooldown instead of 5s

BUGFIXES

  • Suit mod execution buff that grants 10% damage on kill for a short duration gave the bonus permanently. This has now been changed to 3% bonus damage for 3 seconds which can stack. The bonus does not refresh on kills.
  • Some small fixes regarding the shop and the rotation of items.
  • Some players could not enter the Station after the Tutorial, this was fixed now.
  • Daily Challenges re-roll got fixed.
  • Gadgets got their descriptions back.

  • DE – “Schließen” is now properly shown.

  • You will no longer get Krypto Marks when you quit a match from the Lobby or the Drop Pod sequence

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Challenges that have progress, but are not yet completed do not have graphical progress displayed in their bars. Progress is only depicted in the bars if the challenge is completed.
  • If you equip a charm on a weapon that already has a charm, the old charm gets invisible. Please relog to get it back to the inventory.

Please remember:

We are still in Early Access even though Season Three has started. The game is still in development. This means that bugs and crashes are to be expected.

If you find any issues during your session, please don’t hesitate to report it using the bug reporter tool in-game.

Please also keep in mind that queue times, especially late in the night might be longer than expected due to lower player count around these times.

We hope you have fun during your time on Fortuna III and look forward to reading your feedback!
