LawBreakers 1.2 Update Patch Notes for PS4 and PC

LawBreakers 1.2 update will be available for download later today. The update comes with bug fixes and visual effects improvements. The new patch has updated the Lobber projectile and explosion VFX  for primary and alternate fire to be more distinct from one another.

In addition, the patch has also improved the team colors on their weapon effects so that they’ll be more readable and consistent with the rest of the game. On the balance front, there are some adjustments to Assassin and gave a small buff to Juggernaut. Game modes are also seeing a few changes… Blitzball has a shorter game clock and a faster shield drop time to help end matches that are getting too drawn out.
