Dear Community,

 

It's time for another update and this time a lot more aimed towards beginning players where we have added tutorial screens, more translations and more language support over all. Next to all of this we are patching in the new "Tech" skins with the Tech Skinbox. We are also rolling out this update to patch in content for the upcoming Easter 2020 event. More information about that event will be released in the near future.

 

For now, let's get in to the patch notes.

 

Overall Updates:

GENERAL:

  • Added various new content for the upcoming Easter 2020 event. Easter secret spots have been added to all maps. Please note that once again these spots are already showing in the game but won't be spawning any loot until the Easter 2020 event starts.
  • All the beginner missions that activate when joining the beginner training map are now translated in all available languages.
  • The in-game chat font has been updated to a different one that supports more languages including Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai and more. There will no longer be weird block icons showing when using characters from a specific language. If you still experience issues with writing your language in the in-game chat please let us know so we can work on this.
  • The character name allowance has been improved as well. We now allow characters to be created again with a lot more characters and letters from specific languages.
  • The Steam friends system is now integrated in to the game. This means you can now see and invite any of your Steam friends from the game to come and play with you.
  • Added a tutorial slideshow for new players. This screen can be accessed by pressing F1 in either the main menu or in-game. There is separate screens for the different game-modes and there is separate screens for in the menu and in the game. We have also localized these screens although we are not 100% finished with the translations and all the screens yet. More will be added in future updates.

GAMEPLAY:

  • Added an option to enable / disable the automatic equip of gear and attachments when picked up or attached.
  • Picking up a better helmet will no longer automatically switch the gas mask when a player is inside the radiation zone or when a night vision is enabled.

SERVERS:

  • Support for Oceania servers has been added. This means this is now a new region added in the game. There is no servers running in this new region just yet but there will be a later specific announcement about this.

 

Item & Skin Updates:

UPDATES:

  • Updated all Custom Guerilla Fallen Angel skins. We have reworked the wings just like we did on the Heavy Armor Fallen Angel skins. The wings look better, are in a better position and are more optimized.
  • Updated the skinbox icon for the Police Box. This box is legacy but the icon was never updated.
  • Updated the skinbox icon for the Halloween 2019 Box. This box is legacy but the icon was never updated.
  • Updated the skinbox icon for the Summer 2019 Box. This box is legacy but the icon was never updated.
  • Updated the skinbox icon for the Valentine 2020 Box. This box is legacy but the icon was never updated.
  • Updated the skinbox icon for the Winter 2019 Box. This box is legacy but the icon was never updated.
  • Updated the store icon and the recipe icon for the QBZ-95 Tech skin. This skin will also be added to the new Tech Skinbox.

FIXES:

  • Fixed the Heavy Armor Fallen Angel Chrome texture. The skin should now be properly chrome again.
  • Fixed the Heavy Armor BR Champion. It is now better rigged around the character and should fit any character better.
  • Fixed the Heavy Armor Fallen Angel Purple skin. The wings are now chrome again instead of white glowing.
  • Fixed the Heavy Armor Fallen Angel Desion skin. The wings are now chrome red-ish again instead of white glowing.
  • Rank skins now also apply to Battle Royale team wins.

REWORKS:

  • Reworked the store icon for the VSS Vintorez (sniper) & it's skinned variants.
  • Reworked the store icon for the VSS Compact & it's skinned variants.
  • Reworked the store icon for the Honey Badger & it's skinned variants.

  • Reworked the store icon for the Blaser & it's skinned variants.
  • Reworked the store icon for the AWP & it's skinned variants.
  • Reworked the store icon for the Bizon & it's skinned variants.
  • Reworked the store icon for the P90 & it's skinned variants.
  • Reworked the store icon for the MP5/10 SD & it's skinned variants.
  • Reworked the store icon for the B93r & it's skinned variants.

FURTHER WEAPON STATS REWORK:
Continuing the guns rework, we have revisited prior changes we've made to SMGs and readjusted them to better serve their real purposes. 
SMGs are made to be extremely powerful close combat weapons and they should not be strong at a high distance. The issue with their previous status is that, first of all, they had no pattern... Some were extremely strong at certain distances, while others were useless even at close range. Now, we've adjusted to make them at least a bit more logically similar (but not the same) as they all serve the same purpose. 
Basically, we have adjusted damage, improved speed and spread while nerfing the damage distance on them. We also took into consideration each gun's fire-rate and clip size to make this fair. That way, they will adapt to your play style better and you will be inclined to use each one, depending on how you like playing (rushing and pre-firing, tap-shooting, waiting-and-shooting, spray-and-spray, etc...). 

LMGs needed a rework as well, however this is very delicate. LMGs's current main purpose and use is for farming, especially for killing super/alien zombies so we had to tread carefully here. 

  1. We cannot lower their damage or it will affect their current main use, which we don't want to hinder. 
  2. We also can't make it too precise as they are extremely powerful for automatic weapons, with very high damage. 
  3. We shouldn't leave them stuck only for extremely close combat. 

So with these three things in mind, we have added the Spread Variation System to it, where the more you shoot the more spread it has, with a fair limit to it, so it also doesn't go to the sky. 

Future tweaks may occur on these weapons in the near future, but for now, enjoy their new stats and try them out!

ADDITIONS:

  • Added a new healing item: Toilet Paper. This item won't be available straight away but will be part of a future upcoming event. The toilet paper works just like a bandage, it has animations and can heal the player when being used.

In Survival mode though, a partial wipe of LMG's, and a buff towards natural purpose would be great. Make LMG's more rare, more rare than AR's.

Also, there's another way to make LMG's serve their natural purpose, without having to change their stats too much, - Which is:         (keep in mind, this text is based on Survival mode, and not Open World):

Bipod for LMG's
This is something I wanted in Infestation for since forever, - I have always found LMG's in Infestation to me way too weak and inefficient than their reputation in the real life. This should be one of the most rare attachment in the game, just as rare as SVD's, and can only be attached while proned, and should change the spread to something like 2,9.
And while we're add it, add barrels and stocks for LMG's too. I love these new attachemnts! :)

Stationary Bipod
This Bipod works like a barricade, after it's delpoyed, you can hold "E" on it like with vehicles, and your LMG or AR- together with the player-character- will be mounted to it. This should be the most rare attachment in the entire game, same rarity as a blaser. The spread on mounted guns should be something like:

LMG's: 2,7
AR's: 2,3

Обновление это хорошо, но в них все однообразно и не сбалансировано!

Добавили новый скинбокс? Ок, а где скины для любитей автоматов серии АК??? Где скины на рюкзаки???

И так у вас абсолютно во всех скинбоксах!

Сколько раз вас уже просили, создайте уже скин на рюкзак Приключенца версии HYNX V1 (Зеленый)!? Где он? Нет!...

П.с. Создайте уже скинбокс со скинами на большие рюкзаки! С различными вариантами!

(Охотничий Камуфляжный, Охотничий Зимний, Военный Красный дракон, Военный Неоновый дракон, Туристический камуфляжный и т.д. и т. п.)

Не все любят невидимые рюкзаки!

Also, in the future, IF there's nothing new for Survival mode in the patch, can you guys perhaps show just a little love & equal attention towards your Survival players, by at least mention "SOMETHING" about Survival, like a "Hey, nothing new for Survival this time, but we got -(SOMETHING)- in work/process, that you guys can look forward to in the near future" ... Just give us SOMETHING?!

There is a lot planned for survival actually, but we had to patch, and didn't have time to finish everything, but don't worry, there are things coming

In Survival mode you can only use lockers on private servers. However, you can put "Wooden lockers" on official servers, but they can be destroyed and your loot in them can be stolen.

Fix the grenades please. When I throw the nade in front of me sometimes it goes behind me or under my feets. There is a problem with performance while driving next to the zombies or driving into towns.
