MERRY CHRISTMAS, FROM THE PROJECT BRUTALITY TEAM!
We have a lot of fun gifts for you! Your patience was rewarded with a fast track to the nice list this year, and we've got some new toys for everyone! Namely:
[#1] WEAPON QUALITY OF LIFE CHANGES
The standard pistol, plasma rifle, minigun and the MG42 have had tweaks to their sounds, effects, and graphics, looking much smoother and more lively!
A: UAC B-950 PISTOL ----- Better reloading, respect, slidekicking, firing, and mode change animations
B: UAC M1 PLASMA RIFLE ----- Better overall sprites, including the weapon, projectile, and the overcharge ability. New sounds for the overcharge too! (Your rifle really doesn't like when you hold down the overcharge :P) If you're feeling particularly dumb, running up to a monster while holding the charge, will burn small demons alive; a fun alt to the chainsaw! Lastly, if you want to safely cancel an overcharge, press reload before letting go of the fire button.
C: UAC R-51 MINIGUN ----- The base minigun got some cleaner sprites and sounds, and a much smoother respect!
D: MG42 ----- Updates to the overheat system; Sound and graphic updates, the barrel starts smoking, and cooldown is slowed. Reloading is manual and optional, but if you do, you'll replace your overheating barrel to negate the cooldown.
[#2] A SHINY NEW HELMET
The UAC is outfitting you with a new piece of headgear - A much fuller, fancier starting animation has been added!
[#3] NEW SKULL KEYS
A pet project of our own local IRL metalsmithing expert, Metalman has created a new set of Skull keys that try to bring a rustic, demonic feel to your Tier 2 keys. Their looks are inspired by various real life effects such as rust, corrosion, and calcification. Surely, something evocative of millennia old keys that literally unlock the gates to Hell.
[#4] COMPLETE WEAPON OVERHAULS
A: UAC 349-LMG ----- The new LMG is now live! A box-fed, Squad Automatic Weapon, say hello to your new best friend! A 75-round magazine with meaty sounds that make it feel like the old HMG never left your side! We've taken a page from 2016, and provided your itchy trigger finger with a micromissile fire mode! Gyrojet propelled charges that turn even the heartiest monsters to mist!
B: MP40 ----- An ageless, classic favorite for FPS games everywhere, our new MP40 will surely be a beloved addition to your arsenal. Make sure that this once villainous SMG is put to good use for a much more righteous cause, will you?
C: UAC DMR-30 ------ Your standard issue DMR-30 underwent some upgrades at UAC R&D. With the base model redone with more satisfying audio, damage balance, and much more detailed animations, you'll never leave your standard issue rifle behind for those "other" guns.
D: UAC X-85 HARNESS-MOUNTED QUICKLAUNCHER (REVENANT LAUNCHER) ----- Tired of lugging around that old, janky launcher after blasting a revenant to pieces? Worry not! The new launcher now comes with a harness that makes it much easier to carry - the revenant launcher has been completely overhauled as well, and is now part of the equipment wheel, alongside your frag grenades. Similar to the shoulder launcher from Eternal, simply pressing a button will send a barrage of death towards anything you don't like looking at.
E: UAC CDR-20 (FREEZER RIFLE) ----- What kind of Christmas update would this be without some festive changes? Your beloved freezer rifle is a much more useful weapon, able to freeze objects such as barrels, and create large chunks of ice for cover and climbing! All new sounds, particle effects, and features such as melting, crystalizing, and shattering. ***KNOWN BUG - BROKEN KILL COUNTER***
[#5] BARREL DAMAGE SYSTEM
NEW BARREL TYPES ----- Nukage barrels are now extremely versatile. In addition to some standard particle overhauls that make chain reactions easier on game performance, you now have 2 additional types: Frozen and Flaming!
CHANGE THE TYPE OF EXPLOSION ----- With the proper weapons, specifically the freezer rifle or flamethrower, you can turn normal barrels into any of the two new variants, and swap the new variants around. Each new barrel has its own different type of explosion!
INTEGRATE THEM INTO YOUR PLAY STYLE ----- You can pick up a barrel at any time you want, now, but you can only throw them when you're on a roid rage. Take advantage of this and booby trap some doors!
DYNAMIC DAMAGE ----- Finally, barrels also suffer dynamic damage; if punched, sliced with the quick melee blade, or shot, you can damage and even drain the barrel, creating puddles on the floor.
Barrels O Fun got a whole lot more interesting!
[#6] SANTA HATS FOR ALL HUMANOID MONSTERS! MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE! :D (this is a toggle in PB Settings)
