II. Map Adjustment

  • Adjusting the Contra Squad’s spawn point from the Bermuda map.

2. Battle Royale

I. Airdrop Vending Machine

  • Available in Classic and Ranked mode.

“The vending machine has been an important feature in Battle Royale to gather gear and revive fallen teammates. With the Airdrop vending machine, you’ll be able to spend your FF coins in more places.”

“The current combat zone layout is a bit complicated for combat training. We are removing some objects from the combat zone to make enemies more visible in this area.”

3. Character and Pets

I. Chrono

  • Character skill adjustment.

“Even after the change, Tunado Shield proved to be a little too reliable compared to other active abilities. We’re adding some cooldown and reducing shield duration to ensure players use this ability at a high cost.”

“Couflage is currently a bit difficult to achieve because Wukong is moving at high speed. We’re slowing down movement speed a bit in this update so players have less mobility while cloaked.”

III. Andrew “The Fearless”

  • Character skill adjustment.

“The Pack is very strong when the entire team is equipping this skill. We’re reducing damage reduction a bit so the weapons can still be effective against Awakened Andrew fully armored.”

  • Maximum damage: -25%

VI. P90

  • Adjust the weapon’s attributes (Buff).
