Update 1.4.1 - Third Strike Season & Leaderboards



Hello everyone!

Update 1.4.1 is now live! A big feature was introduced and now you can compete with other players for the best positions on global leaderboards! Additionally, a new season is here with brand new skins and accessories to collect! Read full details below.

Leaderboards

As previously available on test branch, Leaderboards are now live and you can check them in-game through a new UI icon, just beside the inventory icon! Your performance within every match is now represented by skill points and tiers. You gain or lose skill points after completing a match according to your performance. At the end of every month and week you will receive rewards based on your skill points and tier! If you want to know exactly how these systems work, please check this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/296300/discussions/1/1496741765142899649/


New Season - Third Strike

A new season has arrived introducing brand new weapon skins and accessories! You will receive a lockbox containing one Third Strike season skin every 48 hours, after playing Ballistic Overkill for at least 2 hours. It is also possible to craft season lockboxes with scraps, which are obtainable through the Leaderboards rewards system or by disassembling your weapon skins. There are 6 new skins collections for you to collect: Hearts (common), Desert (advanced), Magma (special), Red Flame (elite), Blue Flame (elite) and finally, Forge! The legendary rarity. There are also 4 new accessories to unlock by collecting certain number of skins: Cuirassier Helmet (blue flames + hearts), Magma Mask (magma), Viking Helmet (desert + forge) and the Burning Feet (red flames + forge).


Bugfixes and Changes
  • Standing on KOTH point now rewards a player with 50% less score points, while defense kill is now awarded when you kill an enemy who’s inside the point or when you kill an enemy from inside it (including on Capture Points).
  • Added a new button on home screen that allows you to read the latest patch notes in-game.
  • New leaderboards achievements added plus the missing LMG Master.
  • Brute (Tank) range increased.
  • Slayer (Vanguard) clip size increased.
  • Fixed several weapons losing more than intended accuracy when jumping while aiming

Update 1.4.1 Available for Public Testing!



Hello everyone!

Update 1.4.1 is now available on our test branch! A big feature was introduced and now you can compete with other players for the best positions on global leaderboards! Read full details below.


The Public Test Branch

As some of you already know and participated in the past, this is our testing environment. We test updates here so we can fix bugs before sending them to the live version. Everyone can try it and if you're playing on the test branch you will level up and drop boxes normally while having access to new features and content! It’s simple to participate: right-click Ballistic Overkill on your Steam’s library > Properties > BETAS > add this code: beta141branch. Then a download will start and you’ll be ready to play once it’s finished! If anything goes wrong on the test branch, you can switch back to live version on BETAS tab again.

Please, make sure you read these test branch guidelines before you start playing it:

PS: Number of servers are limited on test branch. It will be easier to find a match through community servers tab instead of play now.


Leaderboards

Leaderboards are now available to be tested and you can check them in-game through a new UI icon, just beside the inventory icon! Your performance within every match is now represented by skill points and tiers. You gain or lose skill points after completing a match according to your performance. At the end of every month and week you will receive rewards based on your skill points and tier!

New Season - Third Strike

Even though you’ll see the UI for the new season while playing the test branch, it’s not here just yet! It will only be available when the update is live, so you'll still drop Second Wave boxes. However, enjoy the new season spoilers! :P


Fixes and Changes
  • Brute (Tank) range increased.
  • Slayer (Vanguard) clip size increased.
  • Standing on KOTH point now rewards a player with 50% less score points, however defense kills are now awarded when you kill an enemy who’s inside the point or when you kill an enemy from inside it (including on Capture Points mode).
  • New leaderboards achievements added plus the missing LMG Master achievement.
  • Added a new button on home screen that allows you to read the latest patch notes in-game.
  • Fixed several weapons losing more than intended accuracy when jumping while aiming.
  • Fixed some collision bugs on Blackfield and Reinstate.
  • Fixed admin commands not working. If you’re in a server you own/host, type ./help to see all commands.
