Scum’s Party Skin is one of our new Plus Skins! What’s a Plus Skin, you ask?

:heavy_plus_sign: Introducing Plus Skins! :heavy_plus_sign:

We’re adding a new way to power up some of your favorite Heroes! Select Skins have been designated Plus Skins, allowing you to Level Up those Skins past their normal level cap of 3.

If you own one of these Skins, then you can access the new Plus levels. You don’t need to re-earn the Skin or unlock a separate Skin. Skins that have Plus levels will require Heronium to reach levels 4 to 6.

  • Fusilade base Damage increased from 125 to 1380 (!)
  • UAF Surveyor base allied Hero Attack Damage per Second bonus increased from 1040 to 1050

irezumi Irezumi

Some adjustments to Irezumi make her less powerful at the outset while giving her a long runway once Ink Master charges start to stack.

  • Lethal Dose base Damage increased from 12500 to 13500
  • Ink Master Firing Rate bonus increased from 15% to 18%

  • Weapon Clip Size decreased from 40 to 35
  • Weapon Fire Rate decreased from 120 to 140 (slower fire rate)

oracle Oracle

Coordinated Strike was a little too coordinated. It is less so, now.

  • Coordinated Strike Skill Charge reduction decreased from 50% to 30%

YES, A CARA BUFF her silver needed that…and plus skins? And a kuno skin woot. Oracle nerf kinda sad, extreme mode just got a lot harder. And how did yall choose the plus skins? Just by random? Or by heroes that needed an extra shove?


This looks like a good update. How long did you guys wait for that stratus sphere pun?

About. Stinkin. Time.

Love the Kuno, Icebox, and Scum rare skins that were added, very very cool on that front.

And yes! Please visit our discord! It’s very chill, and we do cool stuff from time to time!


Each Plus Skin was chosen for it’s own reason. Based one what skins you guys like the best we will inform our decisions going forward :+1:


Ooh the Ryker Awards already paying it’s dues. I see this data collection hahaha. All in all, surveys like this are great. I’d consider having one open at all times for people to post feedback and ideas into perhaps :eye: :tongue: :eye:




Correction: Gunsmoke is being added to the Forged Fantasy Crate. Tokens for this Crate can appear as drops from Gilded Crates.

Sorry for the confusion!


Happy 4th year!! Looks like an exciting update :smiley:

Seriously !!! Nerf to Oracle, damn why you always nerf a already bad hero.
Oracle need a buff not a nerf, i will never understand how the developper think. Many other hero need nerf before oracle.


So no new modes, no any rework of current content, even new puny 100+ difficulty for raids? Meh… Hooray…

Plus skins. How about return skin tokens to PVP rewards? Because add levels to skins it’s very expensive without that.

Really totally awesome thing in upcoming update it’s Kunoichi’s skin. Maybe I promote her to Ruby like this happen with Beck and her legendary skin.
