BUG FIXES

REWARDS

In addition to the below changes to Cosmetic rewards, all Game Mode reward tables have been updated so that they share the same pool of non-cosmetic rewards. This means that all Perks and Attachments that were previously only available in some modes are now available in all modes. All cosmetic rewards are still only available from their unique Game Mode.

The following changes have been made to rewards in the following Game Modes:

  • Reworked the Horde Mode reward previews to better clarify possible rewards for each set of 10 waves.
  • Horde Mode – Ruptured Cistern: The Winter Event limited rewards have been removed from the Ruptured Cistern Horde Mode (Winter Constellations, Deep Freeze, Stay Frosty, Xeno’s Greetings, Let It Snow, Holly Berries, Antarctica Traffic Control, Icicles)

The following rewards have been added to the Ruptured Cistern Horde Mode:

THREE (3) NEW EMOTES – (Intense+)

  • Respect
  • Elaborate Bow
  • Fist Pump High

THREE (3) NEW WEAPON COLORS  – (Extreme+)

  • Warped Mesh Assassin
  • Warped Mesh Ranger
  • Warped Mesh Freelancer

ONE (1) NEW DECAL – (Insane)

  • Peace Through Superior Firepower

Game Mode Reward Changes:

  • All Modes now share the same reward pool of Attachments and Perks. Previously, some Attachments were only available from Point Defense, some Attachments were only available from Restock Turrets, and some Perks were only available from Likasi Tower. All of these have been pooled together now. All modes now grant access to first tier of Attachment/Perk rewards when completed on Casual or Standard difficulties, unlock access to the second tier of Attachment/Perk rewards when completed on Intense difficulty, unlock access to an additional Universal Perk  on Extreme, and unlock access to the final Universal Perk on Insane difficulty.
  • Point Defense Cosmetic Rewards: Rewards that previously only dropped in a specific difficulty tier, will now also drop in higher difficulty tiers. For example, if a reward used to be earned by beating Point Defense on Intense (and only Intense), it will now have a chance to drop in Extreme and Insane difficulties if the reward has not been previously granted.
  • Horde Mode – Likasi Tower Cosmetic Rewards: Now has two (2) additional rewards (Weapon Check emote on any difficulty, and Corpsman Up decal on Intense+ difficulties).If you beat a higher difficulty, and haven’t received previous tier cosmetic rewards, those can be earned if you have already been granted the rewards associated with the higher difficulty tier.
  • Restock Turrets – Tower Cosmetic Rewards: Now has two (2) additional Decals (Little Buddy, Substantial Value) available as rewards at Extreme+ difficulties. Additionally, if you are playing on a higher difficulty and win, and haven’t unlocked previous tier cosmetic rewards, those can be earned if you have already received the current tier cosmetic rewards.

Additional Hardcore Game Mode Reward Changes:

  • Hardcore: Point Defense – Quake: Attachment and Perk rewards that previously only dropped with a certain number of Points remaining active, will now also drop if additional Points remain active. For example, if an Attachment or Perk reward used to be earned by beating Point Defense in Hardcore Mode, with only 1 Point standing (and only 1 Point), it will now also have a chance to drop with 2 or all 3 points standing. Cosmetic rewards are only accessible if all 3 points remain active .
  • Hardcore: Horde Mode – Likasi Tower: Attachment and Perk rewards that previously only dropped at a specific wave threshold, will now also drop if additional wave thresholds are met.  For example, if an Attachment or Perk reward used to be earned by successfully completing 10 waves (and only 10 waves) it will now also have a chance to drop at wave 20+, and Attachment or Perk rewards that used to be earned by successfully completing 20 waves ( and only 20 waves) now also have a chance to drop at wave 30+, and so on. Cosmetic rewards now also drop with similar behavior.
