Changes: Highlights

  • Blocking a melee attack imparts a weakness wound on the attacker. The wound lasts for 3 seconds, reduces damage dealt by 50% and reduces block effectiveness by 50%. Players who have the weakness wound cannot apply it to others.
    • Dev comments: This solution finds a nice middle ground between pre-December 2016 combat and the “no-stagger” patch. We’ve retained the smooth, fast-paced feel of the December patch, but raised the skill ceiling to encourage competitive play amongst veteran players.
  • Performance Optimizations: We have updated to a newer version of our game engine and optimized many aspects of the game. Our min-spec machines are able to run the game at higher graphics settings with improved frame rate and high-end machines are showing major improvements as well.
  • Players are no longer able to disable shadows
    • Dev comments: Trapping is an important aspect of The Culling and the option to disable shadows gave an unfair gameplay advantage, not to mention making the game look unappealing. We have worked hard to ensure that our min spec machines can still offer solid playable performance with shadows enabled. We have also improved the look of the “low” shadows setting.
  • Player movement speed reduced by 10% (back to pre-perk-removal settings)
    • Dev comments: Players have learned to utilize mobility in combat to maximize their chances. While mobility is important, we want melee combat to focus more on skillfully choosing when to attack, block, or shove.
  • Reduced overall duration of blindness wound to 6 seconds (from 13 seconds)
    • Dev comments: A well-timed Angry Octopus proc or Smoke Bomb was more likely than not to turn the tide of a fight. We reduced the length of the blindness wound previously, but the wound remained extremely powerful, so we’re taking the gloves off.
  • Players no longer stumble and briefly lose movement control when struck with melee attacks, this led to situations where a player could be effectively stun-locked
    • Dev comments: This long-standing issue became more prevalent with the last combat patch, especially in teams mode. Players can no longer interrupt the mobility of their opponents through melee attacks.
  • Steel Pipe charged damage reduced from 24 to 22, Pipe Wrench charged damage reduced from 27 to 25
    • Dev comments: These bludgeons had their damage initially set based on the assumption that their one-star speed rating would limit their effectiveness. We’ve reduced the damage of these bludgeons to help them fit better within their assigned tier.
  • Shuffled Tier assignments of several weapons to to have more equal variety across tiers
    • Dev comments: With the addition of several new weapons it was time to shuffle tiers. There are now two Tier 3 weapons of each type and Tiers 1 and 2 have more even distribution across weapon types.
  • Increased ammo capacity for bows
    • Dev comments: Who doesn’t like carrying more arrows?
  • Increased punji stick / caltrop immunity period from to 3 seconds (from 1.5 seconds)
    • Dev comments: With the introduction of Steel Punji Sticks we found that the time between damage application needed to be increased due to the amount of damage these traps are capable of inflicting.
  • Crosshairs are visible whenever a weapon is being held
    • Dev comments: Combatants rejoice! Whether it be a melee strike or a throw, proper aiming is important and we determined that it was unfair that some players were resorting to 3rd-party methods to display crosshairs.
  • Increased block angle by 18%
    • Dev comments: The previous block angle was somewhat unforgiving and led to situations where players’ block would not work but looked like it should have. This change should eliminate those cases.
  • Basher reduces bludgeon charge time by 15% (previously 30%)
    • Dev comments: The recent combat changes coupled with the disproportionate damage the Steel Pipe and Pipe Wrench were capable of made Basher was an incredibly powerful perk. We’ve toned it down to be more reasonable.
  • Damage dealt numbers appear in the HUD
    • Dev comments: In an effort to help players understand what’s happening during combat (including the effects of the weakness wound), we’re experimenting with displaying the damage you’ve dealt another player in your HUD. This is a prototype implementation and will receive a polish pass somewhere down the road.
  • Stun Guns spawn in lockers
    • Dev comments: These were removed from Green Crates but were not added into other spawners, which effectively removed them from the game. They are back!
