There will be more announcements later this month! Stay tuned!


every update y’all are making this game better lately. so much variety in PVP now, no more of the same meta every other match. i don’t see drake or flatline at all anymore! but these hero changes are all perfect for more variability. only prob is gonna be kurtz, with the amount of frags given out in AW the flood gates are weeks from opening, and once everyone has him it’s gonna be a pain to play in the high power ranks because we will have a meta ultra hero on every team. we need a UAF counter to kurtz, better than wesson. one that actually threatens kurtz in pvp. but good job!! thanks for your hard work


Thanks for the feedback Nerfed! Glad you like the updates :sun_with_face:

So when’s Operator getting his bridal gown?


I like the look of this. First thoughts:

AW Changes

  • Fewer wars per season sounds great, if only because my phone only fits three wars on the leaderboard screen :stuck_out_tongue: Curious how this affects the “drop the lowest” scoring setup.
  • Scouting changes will be interesting too now that surprise attack is a key part of war. Hopefully this isn’t just a way to facilitate more gold expenditure via scouting, but we’ll see.
  • I don’t personally like improvements at all, because I think it overcomplicates an otherwise very clean and straightforward game mode. Hopefully infiltrator doesn’t further complicate things too much (looking at you sneak attack).
  • More marker types will be a godsend. Very highly requested change and I’ll be looking forward to its implementation.

Shivs Skin

  • Disappointing that we’re continuing to see the RNG reward model for the skin, but I guess it’s inevitable as a justification for new skins.
  • I assume this will follow the same format as Carabina & Xianjiu with an existing co-op raid being recycled (lazy boooooo).
  • Also - why is her name the plural form of shiv…? It rolls off the tongue with all the grace of a newborn giraffe.


  • Francoise hahaha WOW. As a die-hard Francoise fan, I’ve already begun imagining all the fun I’m going to have with this :slight_smile:
  • The Halo nerf is like waving the inevitable goodbye to an old friend. We all knew it was coming. She’s been the powerhouse that’s been ‘old reliable’ since the inception of platinum skills and I think it’s a healthy change to hit her with a reasonable bit of reality. Good change.
  • Keel changes are meh. The faster reload means she’ll be getting her bronze off faster though, but other than that, not much here.
  • Phoenix is more interesting. The Incinerate disorient especially. We’ll see how this plays out but I’m not convinced it’ll be enough to propel her into commonplace lineups.
  • Ryker is getting a massive damage boost, wow. Another big critical chance boost too. Hopefully he sees some more action, but he doesn’t really have any particular niche, so I’m not sure that will happen.
  • Shank’s expected boost from the Shivs pairing is here. Nothing to comment really.

You are reducing the war more and more, the only cute mode of the game … :frowning:

Halo is a good move from the list of heroes getting worked this month. Ryker should be interesting to see based on his new stats. I’m glad to see the devs putting in the work in each new update. The skin releases are what they are, can’t say I agree, however, I won’t ever complain about getting MK’s out of a crate. :slight_smile: With alliance wars, I would recommend you guys keep it somewhat close to how it is. Don’t mess w/ it too much.

I have a few questions in general but also the update regarding:

  1. Why (at a glance) only the new heroes get a skin? There are enough other heroes who do not have skin yet. (Odachi, Brogan, Cinder, Yanlong, Kunoichi … just to name a few.) There are also heroes with 2 skins (Mauler and Hardscope) Do it like Matador 2 skins (Viva and Mariachi) with different values and I will not say anything more.

  2. Why are there 4 * heroes in the gilded box when I can get 5 * and even 7 * heroes from the heroic box.

  3. In the shop, there are the special offers, including the “special starter offers”. I am now 596 days old, so no beginner anymore. Please give me an option to turn these offers off.

  4. If so much changes on the AW, will the rewards change as well?

Cheers CP


I like the balances made to the heroes. However, I think the single RNG skin events are terrible. Throw in 2-3 more skins with the featured skin, and your community will find the events more enjoyable. Also, making them actually accessible apart from limited time luck would be a rather kind gesture.


I would love to understand how you get to rank top 50 and only get 50k bucks that’s unreal top 50 even top 100 should be well more better rewards most time consuming event and you get trash for rewards …

Nerf surprise attacks.

Limit the amount they’re used, for example?


Kinda missed up though to make the daily gold go from 4 and 6 bonus from watching a video to 2 gold and 3 bonus from a video smh


Ryker! Like, finally!


nice update. Especially the new gal. cant wait to unlock her.

Give Ryker that biochem skin and Kurt’s will have his balance! =X. Cool update!

It’s free. Be grateful KYLE!

That’s how it’s always been… The doubled rewards were from a temporary event.

I already miss the double stamina and double gold.

I like the new changes, it shows that HHG is listening to us & trying to keep the game interesting, AGAIN!

I like war, but feel the change is necessary
