I can actually play. That optimization fixed all the issues I was experiencing, and now I can play the game without my game constantly crashing or the maps being all black. Also, I hate the Traders Van, all the guns are gems. Remember the first one? All the coin guns? Fun times...
On a brighter note, the new campaign might be in for Android after this battle pass. There’s a week of it left, and a bit after that, perhaps a day or so later, there’ll be an update. Let’s hope it’s not 15.991.0 or whatever, idk
A lot of Fire rate stats have been altered. From what I can tell, the rate of the weapons is unchanged, so it's more about getting the stats more accurate. But not 100% sure...
Mostly it seems like slow firing weapons have gotten an increase, so I kind of hope that it's for real and not only the stat.
Ex: Rocket launcher, Armadillo: 15-21. Prototype, Solar Cannon: 60-63. Alien Sniper rifle: 62-64 Laser Bouncer, Reflector, BEAST: 64-67. Supercharged rifle: 67-71. Spells in general: 69-71. And so on for most weapons up to the Neutralizer 91-92.
Probably an attempt to make the numbers correspond better to actual performance, then.
But there are still some quite strange ones out there. Like the Night Hunter, with a fire rate of 82. I use several guns with a fire rate around 80, and that's not even close to what the Night Hunter puts out! It's a quick fire auto, not a 99, maybe not 98, but sure as heck not 82 either!
Although. There might be a major revamp of the fire rate stats on the way. They've added and modified recoil, spread, drop and other ballistic factors, so a remake of the fire rate system, with more accurate stats for automatics, does seem like a logical continuation.
The game just threw a whole bunch of weapons at me as well! Three Clan weapons: Void Ray rifle, Black Mamba and Eraser, and then i got 180 parts for the engineer exoskeleton on the second or third go (2 or 6 gems) in that "roulette" lottery, so I felt compelled to spend another 150 gems to get the last 24 parts... And yeah, I got the Laser spear from an event chest a little while ago to!
I'm liking the Black Mamba, and the Eraser has its uses, but it's got a lot of competition in my Heavy arsenal. :-P
Engineer Exo should just about be finished crafting right now, looking forward to trying it out. Have had my eye on it as a potentially interesting weapon for close combat, with it's extreme fire rate and life steal! Just realized that it completes my collection of mythical to include at least one of each category (though only have more (3) of the heavy variety). Just have to upgrade the Anti-Champion rifle, waiting for a Cyber mode Brawl to do it on the cheap!
Quite recently spent the last of my battle pass earnings, bolstered by a $1 purchase of 180 gems on each of my two devices on a Champion Peacemaker and the Anti-Champion rifle, so my arsenal is expanding quite aggressively! ;-)
I'm in Sweden, so pretty far off time-wise as well. Lvl 38 and my name is MrMAYHEM.
