:twisted_rightwards_arrows: Hero Changes :twisted_rightwards_arrows:

Cinder commando shank xianjiu yeager


Cinder Cinder

Due to government advisories, Cinder has been asked to tone down the fireworks in the interest of public safety.

  • Dragon Fire maximum shell count reduced from 8 to 6.

commando Commando

Recent tech advancements have allowed the UAF to outfit Commando with even more firepower!

  • Overdrive extra magazine capacity increased from 12 to 20 additional rounds.
  • Adrenal Implants Health threshold for activation increased from 50% to to 65%, making it activate sooner.

shank Shank

Behold! Our Buff Focus of the month! He’s been hitting the gym hard since we last checked in.

  • Sucker Punch Damage increased by 30%.
  • Threaten activation chance increased from 35% to 50%.
  • Threaten secondary Health gain effect threshold lowered from 3 to 2 enemies.
  • Base Health increased from 4800 to 6250.

xianjiu Xianjiu

Xianjiu is meant to feed off his Terracotta Warriors. Adjustments to The Three Treasures make this more viable.

  • The Three Treasures Damage to Terracotta Warriors increased, allowing Sword of Goujian to activate more often. Health gain remains unchanged.

yeager Yeager

Some adjustments to Yeager should give him more of a presence in team compositions. Sorry for the whiplash!

  • Sound Barrier duration increased from 15 to 20 seconds.
  • Archangel damage increased by 15%.
  • Archangel clip size increased from 120 to 200.
  • Archangel duration increased from 15 to 18 seconds.


Super happy to see the Yeager and Shank buff. Also the Black Belt skin looks amazing. Overall, I really like this update. Excited for Krieger, Venom, and the Venomdome!

Ruby Patrol Crates… sounds cool. But will it be worth it? They current rewards for Plat - Plat +5 are almost identical, and Plat 4 and Plat 5 are near impossible for most alliances. Are the required points for those tiers being tweaked a bit to make Ruby Patrol Crates more acessable?

Default Krieger looks like Buzz Lightyear.

Space Sheriff Krieger looks like Woody.

Would’ve been cool to see Shank get a Mr. Potato Head skin. :wink:


Wow, This update is gon be massive✌️.
So is Kriegar 5* hero?

How is a ruby patrol crate gonna work when platinum+4 isn’t even possible without spending loads of gold on rushes? The daily limit is a problem and should be removed outright imo. If we can do the patrols to reach platinum on Monday then let us.


Threaten activation chance is too high. Its imba.

Okay… so all the hero changes are excellent. But you reduced the damage on my only ten stars bronze skill… by nerfing the amount of shots… gee. Thanks.

Absolutely love everything about this update, super nice changes to some heroes. Some of these needed their buffs hard although shank was actually viable enough, shank with shivs will now be even better!

Shank skin amazing… Krieger skin corny as ever.

I love shanks skin there is devs mentioned special bounty event im excited about that lets see what will we see in it


I really like that Yeager and Xian is getting a buffs, they are not used enough on the field.

Love that Shank skin, look forward to getting him up to snuff with upgrades! Also, really digging that cover art for Krieger!

(In regards to a Ruby patrol crate, it would make sense for it to be a more substantial upgrade over the previous level plat crates. Hopefully it serves as a motivation for alliances to boost their contributions)


Love the skins!!! :star_struck:


Nothing new to see here. Bad heroes in stores. Useless nerfs. A not-new hero from a different game and storyline completely. A random Mars space man mixed with Humpty Dumpty space sheriff?? Nothing makes sense. The writing it on the wall. Hothead is done. Appeal to a small fan base for last push of revenue and peace out says their last dev quietly.


Looks good looks good…love the buffs and im really excited to have a high level shank…now to level yeager…

I agree with you 100%. Patrols should not be limited and with every aspect of this game having a gold option for progress. I think it would be a good gesture from HH to lift the daily patrol limit and allow us to reach all tiers with free play. :slight_smile:

Other then that the update looks incredible and im looking forward to this months playing. Keep up the good work devs. :+1::+1:


Most active alliances runs out of patrol within the first 8 hours. It’s been unchanged since the introductions of the patrol crate. It would be nice to see that 100 patrol limit increased to 150 or even 200 daily so that our friends in APAC can take advantage of some of the patrols before hitting the cap.


only that? more of the same ? no surprises?

What special bounty event?

And yet you are still here. Welcome to leave at any time.

Difference between patrol crates should be increased as well

This is the event he was referring to. :wink:
