PATCH NOTES UPDATE 57

Howdy, Snipers! It’s time for UPDATE 57!
The first update of the year brings lots of new features, events, items, and improvements.:woappy:

NEW FEATURES

:dot: NEW SHOP INTERFACE

Our design team meticulously worked on improving a part of the game’s interface and here it is!:type: The shop got a revamp!
Explore the new menu and find your favorite packs and items easier than ever.

Note that this change will be gradually released, meaning that not all users will have the new interface from the moment they install the update.
Stay tuned for any updates on this!

:dot: MAIN MENU REFRESH

Well, we needed something to match the new shop!
Along with the shop changes, we also worked on prettifying the main menu for you to have a better experience when trying to access certain parts of the game.

:dot: DISMISS SYSTEM

We’ve heard and seen your memes about the difficulty of dismissing squadmates and we came up with a solution - a new dismiss system!

Use it to retire new and old squadmates to win rewards equivalent to their value. You will be able to filter and dismiss them in bulk.

The system also targets an issue where your profiles can get overloaded with the amount of Squadmates you own, preventing you from entering the game in extreme cases. By using it consistently, you will be able to prevent this issue from happening to your profile.

:dot: NEW BATTLE PACK

A brand new pack will be introduced in the game! It will allow you to win up to 10 extra items per Battle Pass Season.

:dot: COMMANDER WILDCARDS

To ease your commander card collection, we’ve added wildcards.
They will have rarities and will count as any other card available from the same rarity.
As a reminder, there 5 types of rarities:

:sparkle_blurple:Legendary
:sparkle_blurple:Epic
:sparkle_blurple:Rare
:sparkle_blurple:Uncommon
:sparkle_blurple:Common

:dot: WARLORD UNDIVIDED: MUTANT REDUCTION

Warlords are more powerful than ever! Now, they can deflect some of the damage dealt to them if you are not using an elemental weapon in the attack.
The damage reduction will be shown on the score screen at the end of the attack as “Mutant Reduction”.

Prepare your elemental weapons!:element_plant:


NEW EVENTS

:dot: GUARD CHANGE

A brand new type of time-limited event! Dismiss your old squamates to win more powerful ones and other awesome rewards.
Within the event, you will have a similar setup as the dismiss system, allowing you to filter your extra squadmates.

:dot: WESTERN SURVIVAL FURY

You received an order from Cellstrike to go on a new mission, but this time something is different. You have to go back in time to prevent a disaster from taking place. You find yourself in the Wild West with the only weapon that could be transported through the time machine.

Waves and waves of cowboys continuously attempt to attack you. Will you survive the standoff and be the last man standing?

The Western mode will include thematic gears, weapons, and a map. This is a standalone edition, meaning that the gears and weapons within it will be available only for other iterations of the Western mode.


BACKEND FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS

:sparkle_yellow: We fixed the issue that prevented some users with an overloaded profile from entering the game through the new dismiss system.
:sparkle_yellow: We added a fix meant to improve the crashing issues on Android.
:sparkle_yellow: We are currently working on adding improvements on all platforms meant to enhance your gaming experience.
:sparkle_yellow: A new redirect has been added to the Customer Care section making it easier for you to submit tickets and receive support from our teams.


NEW CONTENT

New themes are coming to Sniper Fury!

:yay: Wild West
:yay: Hunter Vintage
:yay: Navy
:yay: Cinco de Mayo

:dot: MEMORIAL

To commemorate our fallen snipers, we’ve added a bit of their personality to the game. Each of them has a Squadmate named after them, representing their attitude and spirit. Semper Fi, Elite35, Buda, Vincent, and Iqbal will join the Memorial Squad later this summer. We are grateful for everything they have done!

Good job GWD :D

Changes look like it's moved towards buyers rather than players, but the filtering for bulk dismissal is a good thing, the other part about dismissal and win better SM's is confusing...

That sounds like my "update" also. The items are now mixed in with each other and mostly cash or the purple hands rather than gold.

There must be more to come but no ETA. GL is going to drag it out. Nothing in the SF section of the Microsoft store either.

The players get the usual 'mushroom' treatment, I just can't get my head round the whole secrecy thing, it's just not necessary...

And the latest 'improvement', 2 items in black market are marked as already bought, er no I didn't, and no surprise it was the 2 things I did want to buy!!!

After renewing by watching the add the last two items are marked as already purchased again, this is obviously an unadvertised 'feature', add 1 item to BM and then take 2 away, hands up all those surprised, no one, shocker :roll:

Well looks like todays update was to reverse the previous one :roll:

Back to 9 items in BM although still all jumbled up, and not many for gold mainly cash or allied points.

I cannot remember an update that went smoothly. It seems to take a month or more to work out the bugs.

My game has the mass dismissal of squadmates active. Not sure how to use it or even if it will every be used. Will have to do some experimenting.

Haven't even opened the game today to check on updates. A bit worn from the 3-stage event.

Not sure I'd want to 'experiment' with that, it could go seriously wrong...
