Cluster Strike has been re-worked.. Missiles will now drop one by one instead of three at a time. The total number and duration of missiles remain unchanged.

Two new settings have been added:

Shotgun hit reminder – when switched on, shows which parts of the body were hit

Damage display setting – when switched on, displays the damage values in Multiplayer and Battle Royale.

Slide Distance:

The slide distance of a weapon is now tied to the move speed of the weapon. The faster the move speed, the longer the slide distance. For example, the slide distance when using the AMR (slowest) has been reduced from 4.37M to 4.17M, while the slide distance when using the Knife (fastest) has increased from 4.37M to 5.9M. All other weapons fall within this range. We hope this change will improve weapon diversity while increasing the value of the movement speed attribute.

We’ve made some adjustments to improve sliding for slow-moving firearms. Compared with the previous version, the average distance of the second slide will be farther.

Players can now interrupt climbing by pulling the joystick down while climbing.

Rank Match Optimizations:
