I’ve played 810 hours (Steam) and am about level 45. I stopped playing a few months before Turtle was released (maybe 14 - 18 months ago?), what’s changed since then?
They redid 4/7 of Terminal. Redid Dome at some point but I think you were here then, added Vault and Castle. Next up on redo list is Underground, and NO they haven’t touched Dockyard yet.
New heroes? (Turtle - shield engineer, Javelin - rocket assault)
Guardian (anti-spam shield) (area revive dome thing), Hunter - Crossbow Hanzo with EMP. He’s a better Vassili with a crappy and I mean CRAPPY knife.
Are the load-outs balanced? e.g. Sparks 383(?) was considered the best Sparks load-out by far
Pfft, “BALANCE” we don’t need none of that. TBH though most of the cards are still being balanced etc, we’re on gen 2 but I think you already know that. Soon a new loadout system will be dropping that allows us to better pick the weapons and augments as well as cosmetics for each individual merc. So I want dreiss with flying pig, drilled, and Chopper on a Kiratana with a selbstadt.40 in my single Humble Bundle skin. Yeah, that’s right, but again… “Soon™”. When it comes it’s going to be amazing though. Absolutely can’t wait for it.
Have any characters had major reworks? What’s happened to Phantom, in a nutshell?
I mean, Fragger lost 10 hp, and Sparks had a bunch of indirect nerfs and no longer heals herself as much. Submachine pistols were changed across the board, snipers are weird af now, and shotguns got some nice changes I guess. More accurate, less spread, more ammo, less damage and no headshot multiplier.
Now… Phantom. He gets his own little spot here. Phantom turned into a cheesy douchebag. SD said that they’d make him 100% invisible, and add a slight delay before he can be used offensively when coming out of cloak. What we then GOT was 95% or so invisible (he’s still visible when paying attention and it’s honestly rather refreshing) a near complete removal of sound from him sneaking up on people, and no delay time. All in all 9/10 patch - Hunter’s knife should be fixed.
Phantom changes that are coming won’t fix the problem either if they’ve already come or not…
Absolutely welcome. Have a great day.
