Patch v7.2.3 Released

We're back at it again, this time with a small but important patch that fixes a couple of bugs:

  • Fixed an exploit where vehicle cannons could be reloaded faster than intended.
  • Fixed a bug where TeamSay would not work when the player was dead.
As an added bonus, there are some new and improved sounds for a number of weapons, so keep an ear out for them!

In other news, since we launched our Patreon campaign last month, our generous patrons have helped us FAR surpass our first goal of getting all the operating costs of the project covered! This means that any additional donations will go directly towards adding new content to the game.

Thank you to all of our players and patrons for their continued support!

See you on the battlefield,
Daklight Games
