0.16.0 Patch Notes (2020.9.9)

Hey everyone, Aesop here with your favorite kind of update: Patch Notes. There’s a lot of stuff here, so let’s get started.

Game

New Weapon Types

I’m sure you’ve seen our last posts about this, but we’ve added a couple new weapon types to our characters. Try them out when you get the chance!

  • Li Dailin – Nunchaku
  • Hyejin – Shuriken
  • Isol – Pistol

System

Emotes

Winky Face
We’ve added a system to display emotes to show your teammates how impressed you are with their sick 1v2 win or to show your displeasure at your enemies chasing you. Just press T (default) to open up the Emote wheel and use your mouse to pick the appropriate Emote.


Assists

More XP for you if your Jackie steals your kill!
We’ve added a system of “Assists” to team modes.
You will receive an assist in team modes by doing the following within 10 seconds before the target is killed:

  • Damage the target
  • Apply a debuff to the target
  • Target steps on a trap of yours
  • Buff or heal a team member who does any of the above to the target.
  • Experience granted
    • Killer: 200 xp + 60 per level of opponent
    • 1 player assist: 100 xp + 30 per level of opponent
    • 2 player assist: 50 xp + 15 per level of opponent
  • Hunting experience granted
    • 2 people hunt target: 60% each
    • 3 people hunt target: 47% each

The images displaying “Kills/Animal kills” are now just K,A,H (kill, assist, and hunt, respectively.)

Other

More LP and more chickens! Also, reducing the cooldown of skills by half might be a little too much..

  • LP Gains in Duo and Squad slightly increased.
  • Maximum cooldown reduction lowered from 50% -> 40%

    • Chicken: 4mins —> 2min 30sc

  • Cemetery security console location moved
  • Chat windows will display a “no teaming” notice to help remind players and avoid violations of Eternal Return TOS.

Saved Plans

  • When setting a route, it will now display the area which an item is totally completed.
  • Added a filter for hiding duplicate items and basic materials.
