Update 4.2 Beta 1

NEW Naut: Smiles
Trappers Hook: Throw out a hook that will drag enemy Awesomenauts towards you for a short duration.
Tail Whip: Smack your enemies with your steel tail, knocking them away.
Bush Fire: Use your flamethrower to burn everyone in a line.

Short backstory:
After he and the other renegades escaped from prison, Smiles hid in the swamps on Ribbit II. With a background of tracking and capturing targets, he put his skills to good use. The unorthodox method of poaching swamp rodents with his flame thrower, resulted in heavily burned pelts and hides, but it turned out a great business success as the dark charred bags were an instant hit on the amphibian black market. One day an old friend knocked on his door with a plan of vengeance. Step 1: join the Awesomenauts!

  • The scoreboard now tracks damage done to the base together with the damage done to turrets.
  • Opening the shop while having the scoreboard open will now open the shop and close the scoreboard, just as it was before 4.0.
  • Fixed that sometimes when you had the steam overlay open and pressing enter, it would register as a shift+enter instead.

  • Updated Veanko’s Leon, Lonestar, Raelynn, Gnaw, Skree, Clunk and Ayla bots.

  • Added a new option to AffectAreas to change a player’s team. This can for example be used to make mods where six players are in a single team or where you need to switch team during the mod. It is also possible to play local versus this way if only one of the local players switches team. This is an experimental feature that probably has a lot of issues, use at your own risk. For example, the deathtimers are disabled once this is used and switching to a team that doesn’t have graphics for the current class produces broken graphics (like a neutral team Lonestar). This feature might even be removed in the final release of 4.2 if we deem it too risky for final release.
