:beginner: Other Updates :beginner:

:fist: Crate Contents :fist:

  • MK.2 is being added to the Hero Crate

:twisted_rightwards_arrows: Hero Changes :twisted_rightwards_arrows:

fischer Fischer

Adjustments to Submerge make Fischer more dangerous to shoot with rapid-fire weapons, increasing his overall utility.

  • Submerge activation chance increased from 5% to 8%

Matador Matador

Matador is a powerful team Shielder, but with the addition of his Ruby Skill, his ability to generate Shields by rapidly destroying cover has gone a bit out of control. Changes to his Shield strength allow him to retain this utility without unbalancing matches.

  • Lead the Charge Shield strength decreased by 15%

yeager Yeager

Gotta go fast! Again!

  • Sound Barrier Movement speed bonus increased from 30% to 40%
  • Skill Cooldown increased from 50% to 60% (higher value means quicker charging)

Looks like an interesting update can’t wait to try it out

Matador nerf is very welcomed. Amazing additions to some of the buffs! Going to be a very SAVAGE Xmas!


You can got to be kidding me. Could you kindly stop nerfing the heroes I use for gauntlet on a daily basis??? Though my rage is somewhat abated by MK.2 being in the crate so I can waste all my gold desperately trying to unlock him.


looks good. great changes come in the form of balance

Nice seeing Yeager getting buffed, he often isn’t a formidable opponent in a lot of gamemodes.

Nice changes overall!


Great update as always!

Savage x-mas everyone. Good to see these buffs and nerfs. Though i’m still not sure these are the tweeks we really need

Why is he blue…:thinking::thinking:

I mean he is a little blue but not THAT blue!


Unflattering lighting.


Could you please stop ruining the work that takes us to build a hero to his maximum power, and now you are coming to ruin it, you know how difficult it is to take a hero to 100% and then the developers come to ruin the job


Same repetitive things every month. :man_facepalming:t2::man_facepalming:t2:

But the triangle changes color from yellow to blue! I declare this is more than lighting! :fist::triumph:

@TH3F4TH3R heroes get changed often if they are in need of balancing. Changing the details of heroes helps keeps the meta flowing, so the adjustment logs are probably my favorite part of update posts.


If they are going to do that, I wouldn’t mind if I received a message with 500+ gold to balance my time invested

You will find heroes which have been nerfed still retaining their utility. Mandrake was nerfed several times, and is still used in effective team comps, same for Marianas.

I think you don’t understand the point here friend

I would say that might be a reasonable thing to request if we ruined a Hero to the point where they can’t be played anymore, but that’s far from the case. Matador is still a force. So is Mandrake, despite all of the adjustments he’s received. Your investment remains intact, and viable. It’s just not an instant win button like it was before.


Welcome to hero hunter, hahaha

yeager has been nerfed to the point of nothingness. Hopefully this buff will help a lot

I agree with you, it’s a lot of work to be ruined later!
