All Flak Weapons

This flag was set to false in order to prevent flak weapons from instantly killing all squad members in garrison structures.

Centaur

  • Damage reduced from 20 to 14

Flamethrowers Update

Cover Table

We are reducing the bonus damage that flamethrowers apply to garrison to give players more to react with their units in garrison. Previously we would see weapon teams be killed before they could ungarrison.

Flame Damage Over time

We are increasing the time per tick for damage over time. This will include all incendiary abilities, Molotov’s, and flamer dots that vehicles leave behind. The tick in game time should translate to about 1 second real time which should help player gauge the amount of damage they will take if they choose to stand in the fire.

  • Damage frequency reduced from 0.5 to 1.25
  • Dot radius increased from 3 to 5

Artillery Update

Air Superiority

Previously the huge blast radius of these bombs made it very difficult for players to dodge.

  • Now do 25% less damage against base structures
