New Season Improvements and Bug Fixes!

September 17, 2020

Check out all the game changes coming straight to your console in next week's update!

PS4 Update Size: ~1.12 GB

Xbox Update Size: ~1.10GB


Tank Adjustments

Bizon T-103 + T-103

Map Adjustments

Sunset Coast – Encounter Variant 2

  • Moved the Base capture location slightly further East.

Sunset Coast – Standard Battle – Variant 3

  • Spawn points updated for both teams

Fisherman’s Bay – Standard Battle Variant 2

  • Moved Team 1 spawners closer to W so they can better contend with the valley. Team 2 spawners have been pushed back a bit so they don’t dominate the valley.

Prohorovka Night – Standard Battle

  • Moved some of the closer spawners to the hill for Team 2 onto the other side. The hope is that it will take them a little bit longer to get to the hill and contest team 1.

Kaunas – Standard Battle Variant 1

  • Spawn points update for both teams.

Kaunas – Standard Battle Variant 2
