The developer also shared a few notes from the game’s upcoming title update which is set to release “within the next two weeks.” According to 343, the update “addresses some of the concerns we’ve been hearing from the community.” The notes can be found below:

  • Reduced the range of the Boltshot’s damage scaling over distance. The previous effective range for 1-hit kills was 20′-25′. The range has been reduced to 15′.
  • Fixed an issue that did not allow players to create respawn timers or disable instant respawn in custom games.
  • Fixed issues with friendly fire against vehicles. If FF is disabled, damage / EMPs from friendly sources will no longer damage vehicles that are fully controlled by your team.
