Patch v1.0.4

Hey players, we’re back with another little patch. This one is a mix of fixes and features, which is why it’s been little bit of a longer time coming.


  • Achievements. For many users the completionist achievement was bugged and their game percentage was never reaching 100%. This has now been fixed and will be verified when a player enters the single player open world and waitd for the game to load. Pressing ‘GO’ at this stage will trigger any achievements they are still warranted.
  • ‘Use’ key and ‘Map’ key binding. Previous the player was unable to map these keys to their own chosen keys. This is now possible.
  • Player skins in Multiplayer. Player is now able to correctly display any skins (Cat, coat or weapon) they may have earned in Singleplayer during a Multiplayer match.
  • Text size increase. The text in the game has been generally enlarged to provide better visibility. This was especially an issue with players playing on a big screen from a distance.
  • Multiplayer lobby chat. Players can now communicate via a chat window in the bottom right of the lobby screen. There are some known issues with the Input field losing focus when a mouse has been moved during edit. We are still looking at ironing this issue out, but wanted to get the chat out as soon as possible.
Okidokes, that’s it for now. As always, thank you to everyone who has provided us with feedback and please continue to do so here on the discussions page or at through our support form.

Balance Patch v1.0.3


We’ve put together a little balance patch for Tokyo 42 single player. It became apparent to us that many of you struggled with a few of the final missions, so we went ahead and nerfed them slightly. Hopefully this will take the sting out of them a little.

  • Final mission: Many of the enemies in the later waves have been removed
  • Wing fight Mission: Wing’s life span has been reduced greatly
  • Alternative healing: The runners have been slowed down significantly
As well as these nerfs we’ve reduced the cost of the Cluster-chuck grenade significantly, so the ‘Weapon Collector’ achievement will be more within reach.

EDIT: We accidentally only changed the price of the Cluster chuck grenade in one of the shop locations. The cheaper nade can be bought in the Commado's faction area (Nudist Forest)

There are some more patches coming up this week so watch this space, and as always please feel free to contact us on the support form at, or in the discussions page here on steam.
