Update 1.5.2 - Hotfix

Hey Soldiers!

Following community feedback, we are launching a small hotfix for our last update (Bloodlust). This update improves the player in-game experience when playing the Rounds Mode.

Fixes:
  • Round stats were not visible - now is visible

  • We’ve lowered the requirements for a valid match when playing in Rounds Mode. Due to the nature of this game mode, the playtime is lower than other game modes;

  • UI’s footer information in the Leaderboards Tab screen now displays the Rounds matches played correctly;

Known issue:

Linux 32 bits still crashing after Title screen. Please, use the 64 bits version while we are investigating this issue.


See you in the battlefield!

Ballistic Overkill 1.5.1 - 'Bloodlust' update is Live!



Hey Soldiers!

Back on the 1 August, we released the beta version of the Rounds update. Since then, we have taken onboard the loads of player feedback we received, added in a number of additional improvements of our own and have come up with the all new Bloodlust update.

You told us that the Rounds update was too passive. Well no longer - only the brave will succeed and the weak beaten.

The earlier you score a kill, the higher the points awarded will be.

With multi-kills at a premium, they now score double.

The Rounds game mode now features on the Leaderboards.

For a full breakdown of what has been included in the 'Bloodlust' update, read on....
  • Added Rounds to Leaderboards - you must complete 5 ‘Rounds’ matches each month to get ranked into Monthly Leaderboards.

  • Added Rounds to Week Leaderboards (Same rules as other modes).

  • Rounds warm-up time reduced from 34 to 26 seconds.

  • Fixed a bug in Rounds where the enemy becomes visible on the radar when nearby to enemy base.

  • Fixed bug on Reinstate map that allowed the Smoke team to access the map early.

  • Fixed the 'Killed By' message bug in the Rounds mode.

  • Added status of match to KillCam, so you can track your teammates progress while they are playing the current round.

  • Added 'Bloodlust' system to the Rounds mode. We want to encourage combat and aggressive playing, so the faster you eliminate an opponent at the start of the game the higher the points you get (aside from 15 points, you get one point for every 2 seconds until the round ends, max 35).
    For example on the 1min 30 sec round count down, scoring could as follows:
    kill at 1:00 45 points
    kill at 0:42 36 points
    kill at 0:18 24 points
    and so on…

  • Double, Triple and Overkill scores are double in Rounds.

  • In rounds mode, players receive the same points for both a 'kill' and a 'kill assist.

Balance Changes
  • Berserker weapons:
    Thumper: Fire rate slightly lowered

  • Vanguard weapons:
    Jackhammer: Reload duration slightly increased and magazine size reduced from 8 to 7 bullets.
    Widower: Reduced damage slightly

  • Tank Weapons:
    Mongoose: Increased slightly damage and fire rate
    Rhino: Increased slightly reload duration
    Rampart: Reduced number of bullets per shot from 17 to 15

Performance
Core .net runtime was upgraded from 2.0 to 4.0 (This should reduce stuttering on low-end machines).

Stay safe on the battlefield!
