Battle Royale

Rank Points Adjustment

Jota

Character Skill Rework
“It is currently a bit difficult to activate Jota’s skill because taking down a downed enemy usually exposes himself to danger. We’re giving the skill a rework in this patch so players can have a smoother time using Jota on the battlefield.”

Sustained Raids – When using guns, hitting an enemy recovers some HP for the user, knocking down an enemy recovers 10/12/14/16/18/20% maximum HP for the user.

Luqueta

Character Stats Adjustment
“Luqueta’s Hat Trick currently does not offer enough HP for players to take the risk of taking down enemies. We’re giving this skill a small adjustment so players get slightly more HP when the Hat Trick is used.”

Hat Trick – Every kill increases the max HP by 8/10/12/14/16/18 -> 10/13/16/19/22/25, up to 35 -> 50.

Shani

Character Stats Adjustment
“Gear Recycle currently takes a bit too long to charge up so players find it more efficient to pick up a new set of armor directly. We’re giving this skill an adjustment so players can upgrade and repair their armor without picking up a new one.”

Gear Recycle – Restore 10/12/14/16/18/20-> 10/12/15/19/24/30% armor durability after every kill. Extra durability can upgrade your armor, up to level 3.

Alvaro

Character Stats Adjustment
“Alvaro has been underused in the current meta because the damage increase from Art of Demolition was not effective enough in terms of reducing players’ room of error when throwing the grenade. We’re giving his skill a small buff in this patch to make it slightly more explosive.”

Art of Demolition – Explosive weapon damage increases by 6/8/10/12/14/16% -> 10/12/14/16/18/20%.

Minimum Damage: +8%
Magazine: +2
Effective Range: +10%

XM8

Vector

Weapon Stats Adjustment

Movement Speed: +10%

M1887

Weapon Stats Adjustment

Range: -8%

Muzzle Attachment

Attachment Stats Adjustment

Double Magazine

Magazine Size: +60%->+40%.

Decoy Grenade

Item Rework
“Decoy Grenades have been extremely underused right now because they do not provide any strategic advantages for the user as the dummy can be spotted out easily. We’re giving the Decoy Grenade a rework in this patch so it can actually distract enemies.”
