World Updates

SANHOK 

  • Bootcamp
  • To reduce the complexity and bunched-up feeling of Bootcamp, the central tower has been repositioned from the center to the right. We have then considered different angles and distances and adjusted the layout of the other buildings around the center area to provide an open space for better shooting.
  • Players seemed to have too much of an advantage behind the parapet walls on the third floor of the central tower so we got rid of them and instead placed boxes made of stone on the rooftops.
  • We also narrowed the space between the second and third floor to reduce the advantage players had on the third floor.

  • Players will be able to find their additional Action Wheel in the Customize tab.
  • In the lobby or in a match, players can use their mouse wheel to switch between the first and second action wheel.
  • If players select spray items from their Action Wheel in the lobby, a message will pop up saying that sprays are unable to use.
