Patch 1.1.8 – Health Pick-Ups And Ammo Changes

- in Game News

Patch 1.1.8 contains many changes and major improvements in Ballistic Overkill which are very helpful for players when they experience the game. However, it stills gets other bugs. If you want to report those issues, please inform on Steam or in the community forums []. Let\’s explore changes of ammo and health pick-ups right now!


Main Improvements

  • Health Packs

The health stations are replaced. And currently, you can encounter many health packs scattered around the stages. If you walk over a health pack (in case your health is not filled), you should collect it and use it to heal quickly. The amount healed will depend on the type that you have already gathered (big or small). After you do this, you will have ten seconds to receive the next ones which appear at that station.

  • Infinite Reserve Ammo

While playing Ballistic Overkill game, you need to reload constantly to keep your gun working. But, your reserve ammo will not ever end. This change helps players escape the fear when they run out of the ammo. Thus, you will own a large number of reserve ammo and you can recover the ammo when you heal in the station. Next, if you don\’t heal your health at the station, you will have no way to recover ammo anymore. And you know when you have the extra kind of pack, you can get trouble with the ammo and the health packs.

  • Weapon secondary function reworked

The weapon secondary functions have a new named. They are called weapon skills. If you hit the weapon skill button, you are able to change the weapon, shoots, and back to the original weapon. Besides, the weapon skills will not spend any ammo. To compensate for this, the weapon skills will offer to you a cooldown of 6 seconds. In the existing version, there is not any UI to notify when the skill is on cooldown or not. However, it will be present in the new UI.

The default button for weapon skills was replaced with E (was V)

  • Not only that, the Ballistic Overkill Map Voting System was changed.

Players can select one of 4 random maps. Each of them will represent a different game mode.

  • Some shotguns right button becomes a melee attack shortcut

It\’s pretty useless when aiming with shotguns! A melee strike is more suitable and effective to the close quarters, run and gun style of most shotguns. In the next time, other changes in the playstyle and differences of guns will be added.

There are several shotguns in the change such as Anakonda, Thumper, Bonebreaker, Terminator, Mammoth, and Rhino.

Meanwhile, other shotguns in Ballistic Overkill get a small precision boost while aiming.
