Vigor 1.06 Patch Notes (Season 9) – August 18, 2021
Season 9: Stalkers
The Stalkers are the children of the apocalypse. They were born to survive the Outlands and you can recognize them by their gas masks, muzzles, rusted weapons and their hauntingly glorious title! They also come equipped with grenades and the formidable A74-KSU so shadow them across the land and discover all the enhancements they bring.
Grenades Added to the game
Grenades are finally here! We know you’ve been asking them for a long but the wait is finally over. Some players might even remember when we had back in the very early stages of the game’s development but we decided to remove them, do a complete overhaul on them and re-introduce them once they were ready. And now’s the time!
First of all, they are fragmentation or “frag” grenades, meaning that if one explodes close to you, you can die instantly! Since they are “Special Issue” rarity that means you can only carry 2 into an Encounter. They are the perfect tool to force out other players who might be hiding out inside a house or an advantageous point. They can help in situations when you feel like you might be walking into an ambush and so you can throw a grenade preemptively and if there’s someone waiting for you, it will get them moving. Basically, you can go into the Encounters better prepared for these kinds of stalemate situations. Ultimately, they will bring some versatility and will allow players to pursue a faster-paced game style so make sure to use them whenever you find the opportunity.
Performance Enhancements For Next Gen Consoles
Here’s another thing that our community was asking for that we managed to introduce in Season 9: players on the Xbox Series S|X and PS5 will be able to enjoy Vigor in 60 fps! And this is only the beginning. What we plan on doing next is to use the additional power we get from the next gen consoles to boost image quality. Our team would like to increase the target resolution, boost the quality of the shadows, and sharpen the overall image. But we still have to investigate it.
Now’s The Time To Try Elimination Mode
We decided to give some love to the Elimination mode with this Season, which is why a lot of important changes were made. First and foremost, we switched off team killing! Hooray! On top of that, we added more weapon load outs before each round. Last but not least, we’re introducing an Elimination crate as a reward, similar to the Shootout crate!
Here’s how the Elimination crate works. Each member of the winning team will receive one Elimination crate, as well as XP rewards based on their score. The only way you will not receive any rewards is if you keep shooting your teammates, which will result in 0 XP and no crate. The Elimination crate has 6 slots, each one representing a different item you can receive. That includes weapons, consumables, materials, crowns and cosmetics.
More Bug Fixes And ChangesThe question now is, “What if I’m on the losing team?” Don’t worry, you won’t leave empty handed! If your score is over 1000, you will receive a common crate, as well as an XP reward to compensate your time spent in Elimination mode. The XP reward applies to all team members, except for those with a score less than 300.
Czech Out Our New Localization
