What’s good, heisters?

We hope you all enjoyed the stream last Friday and got most of your questions answered. Thank you to everyone who joined in and made himself heard. With today’s update we’d like to address the issue most of you mentioned, the number of Dozers and Cloakers on higher difficulties. Additionally, we fixed a few issues that came with the new Graze Skill and iterated on the reward reduction for most of the mutators. For more information, check out the changelog further down!

Skills

  • Trigger Happy
    • Basic: Damage boost has been increased to 120% (up from 20%) and will now only stack 1 time (down from 4).
    • Aced: The damage boost increased duration has been reduced to 4 (down from 10).

    Developer notes: With the removal of Specialized Killer skill, pistols started lagging behind some of the other weapons. Our hope was that player would move to the trigger-happy skill but because of how clunky that skill works, this was not the case. Therefore we made the above-mentioned changes with the intention to make sure we keep pistols viable in the game.
