Patch Notes


  • Replaced Competitive mode "Join in Progress" matchmaking system with "Queued" matchmaking.
  • Searching for a Competitive game, either from "Find a Game" or "Play with Friends," will enter the player/s ( between 1 and 5 ) into a waiting queue. Once 10 compatible players are found then the game will begin.
  • Players that disconnect from a match can reconnect to it from the main menu or abandon it. Abandoning a game will result in a cooldown period during which no new competitive match can be joined.

  • Weapon changes:
    • Reduced p90 kill award from 300% of default to 200%.

    • Increased Bizon kill award from default to 200%.
    • Reduced all shotguns' price by 300.
  • Guns are now considered "reloaded" at the point during the reload animation in which they visually appear to be reloaded - this allows you to switch away from a gun after the new magazine has been entered without having to wait until the whole reload animation has finished * the weapon refire delay after starting a reload is not affected.
