Patch Notes

BATTLE ROYALE ITEMS

New Battle Royal items added to Creative...

Ranger Assault Rifle

  • Made for distance! The Ranger Assault Rifle is forceful at medium range and quite capable at long range.

MK-Seven Assault Rifle

  • Built from The Seven’s technology, the MK-Seven Assault Rifle is a medium- to long-range weapon with a high rate of fire. This Assault Rifle has a sight you can use while aiming. Align your target with the sight’s red dot!

Striker Pump Shotgun

  • The Striker Pump Shotgun shoots a whole lot of pellets and boasts high burst damage. Aim… then strike!

Auto Shotgun

  • An automatic ally that lays down some serious firepower. The Auto Shotgun may not deal as much damage as the Striker Pump per shot, but it has a faster fire rate and reloads two shells at a time.

Stinger SMG

  • Appropriately named, the Stinger SMG deals high damage to both opponents and structures. It stings at medium range more than one may expect!

Sidearm Pistol

  • A trusty weapon to have by your side, the Sidearm Pistol is an accurate weapon that deals high damage at medium range and high headshot damage at close range. Don’t underestimate it!

Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper
