Other Changes
  • Optional Content Toggles

    – All of the new content (enemies, pilot skills, etc) other than balance changes are possible to turn off if you would like the base-game content experience.

  • Weapon reactor usage reduced

    – We wanted to encourage players to immediately try out equipment they find, so we reduced the reactor power to equip most gear.

  • Store Changes

    – Since you can now instantly equip most weapons without needing an additional reactor core, the reputation cost to purchase weapons has increased by 1 and the store options are limited in the first 2 islands.

  • New weapon mechanic: KO effects

    – Certain weapons will trigger an additional effect if the primary target is killed by the attack.

  • New tile mechanic: Cracking

    – Certain weapons will cause the ground to crack. If the tile is damaged again, it will shatter, destroying the tile and anything standing on it!

  • New status effect: Boost

    – This will increase the next attack’s damage by 1. Highly effective for AoE attacks!

  • Unlocking Squads with Coins Change

    – The cost of unlocking squads with coins has been reduced to account for the extra squads.
