Approaching Y6S3.3, Alibi has one of the three highest K/D ratios (1.26) of all Operators when equipped with her Mx4. In an effort to give it a little more kick and require a little more finesse to effectively handle and secure frags with, we’ve increased its vertical recoil. As you can see from the above recoil comparison, the change will require some re-adjustment from players, but should still be manageable to handle.

P10 RONI
  • Reduced P10 Roni magazine to 15+1 (was 19+1).
  • Total ammo:
  • PVP – 181
  • Hardcore – 121
  • PVE – 196
  • Increased vertical recoil.
  • Increases first kick recoil.Population targeted by this change: Casual, Pros, and Top Ranked.

Please note that recoil simulations shown are representative of recoil on PC without attachments.

Similar to Alibi above with the Mx4, Mozzie also has one of the highest K/D ratios (1.26) with the P10. While Aruni’s K/D isn’t quite as high, the power and precision of the P10 has helped to make her already-stacked kit – from the strong utility of her Surya Gates to her passive which allows for the creation of infinite rotation holes – a force to be reckoned with. To help bring both Operators back in line with their fellow Defenders and encourage some more experimentation with their loadouts, the P10 is getting a nerf to its recoil and magazine.

In its pre-Y6S3.3 state, the P10 had an extremely tight pattern that made it extremely effective, as proven by Mozzie’s impressive K/D. While its vertical recoil has increased, when compared to the updated Mx4 above, the updated P10’s recoil should still be slightly easier to manage. It should still represent a strong pick for both Operators, but we also hope that it will open the door to more experimentation with Aruni’s MK 14 and Mozzie’s Commando. Plus, with the P10’s magazine reduction, players will want to make sure they have a solid bead on their opponents before firing, as they’ll have less bullets to fall back on.

GADGET BALANCING

HARD BREACH CHARGE
  • Increased gadget amount to 2 (was 1).
  • Affected Operators: Montagne, Buck, Fuze, Capitao, Amaru, Nokk, Ying, ZeroPopulation targeted by this change: Casual and Top Ranked.

When we introduced the Hard Breach Charge a year ago, the intention was to give Attackers more versatility and approach options – something we’re happy to say it achieved, especially in lower ranks. One thing we’ve noticed, though, is that this flexibility is sometimes hindered by its single use. This can dissuade creative or risky plays in favor of choosing the safe option, so we’ve added another HBC to the applicable Operators’ loadouts.
