WEAPON AND LOOT META

Hop-ups

[Designer notes: We think the number of hop-up types in the game is about as high as we want to go right now when we consider loot dilution and the likelihood of finding a desired hop-up. Going forward, we intend to rotate hop-ups each season — some may be removed from the loot pool to make room for new or returning ones. Below are the changes we’ll be making to hop-ups for Season 3.]

  • REMOVED: Disruptor Rounds
  • REMOVED: Skullpiercer Rifling
    • Wingman: Was 2.0 base / 2.25 with Skullpiercer. Is now 2.15 base.
    • DMR: Was 2.0 base / 2.5 with Skullpiercer. Is now 2.15 base.
    • The base headshot damage multipliers of the DMR and Wingman have been increased slightly.
  • NEW HOP-UP: Anvil Receiver 
    • Attaches to: Flatline and R-301.
    • Rarity: level 4 (gold).
    • This hop-up empowers semi-auto mode; it offers highly increased damage, but at the cost of reduced rate of fire and double ammo per shot.
  • NEW HOP-UP: Double Tap Trigger
    • Attaches to: G7 Scout and EVA-8 Auto.
    • Rarity: level 3 (purple).
    • This hop-up makes each trigger pull fire a quick two round burst.

Consumables

  • Ultimate Accelerants
    •  20% -> 35%.
    • Ultimate charge restored increased
    • Reduced the amount in the world by around 40%.

GOLD GEAR CHANGES

  • Gold Backpack
    • The gold backpack has a new perk, “Guardian Angel”. With Guardian Angel, you will revive downed teammates with bonus health and shields (if they have armor).
  • Gold Armor

The gold armor will now have “Fast Use” (consumable items take half as long to use), which was previously on the gold backpack. Now, you will be able to tell when an opponent has the ability to heal faster by seeing the gold armor damage numbers.

[Designer Notes: For Season 3 weapon changes, our goals were to encourage and improve longer range gunfights and reduce power on some of the weapons that have been dominating lately. We will of course be closely watching data and player feedback on these during the season.]
