Keep reading for a complete breakdown of the new 10.20.2 hotfix patch notes.

WEAPONS & ITEMS

Vaulted

  • Combat Shotgun
  • Drum Shotgun
  • Proximity Launcher

Unvaulted

  • Suppressed Assault Rifle (Epic/Legendary)

Automatic Sniper

The Automatic Sniper was underperforming relative to some of the other Sniper Rifles. This adjustment to damage should make it more desirable as an alternative long-range weapon.

  • Increased damage from 31/33/35 to 40/42/ 44

Peppers

  • Increased the duration of spiciness from Peppers to a 60-second duration from a 20-second duration.

This POI is intended to be a high-risk, high-reward drop location, but we feel the reward has outweighed the risk. By reducing the availability of Obelisks, gathering rare loot will require a little more time investment.

  • Reduced the maximum number of Spawn Obelisks from 7 to 5.
  • Increased the time before Spawn Obelisks respawn to a max of 30 seconds (previously a max of 5 seconds). The respawn timer for Spawn Obelisks is on a loop and time may vary between 1-30 seconds.
  • Decreased the chance to drop Rocket Launchers from destroyed Spawn Obelisks from 18.46% to 10%
  • Decreased the chance to drop Jump Pads from destroyed Spawn Obelisks from 50% to 40%
