Build and Survive update 1 is live! Here's a rundown on all the fixes, changes, and new features:
- Special rounds!
Every 2 rounds will be a special round! Currently, there is chance between spawning all tanks and all rogues. It spices up repetitive gameplay and makes things more exciting. More to come!
- Dual wielding!
Ever wanted to go all akimbo on some zombies? Well now you can -- if you got the robux.
- Level 100 'The Classic' skin!
Nostalgia anyone? This super dope skin transforms your regular laser gun into a pew pew gun!
- Obsidian and Firebrick!
Added two new building materials - obsidian and firebrick! You can probably make pixelart now.
- More XP!
XP amounts have been doubled! That's 6x XP for gamepass users.
Unfortunately not a global leaderboard -- but a server leaderboard! Displays wins and level of everyone in the server. You can now flex on your friends!
- Networking rework!
For the nerds: this is a large internal accomplishment which lets us abuse remotes! Data is compressed to save bandwidth and connections are universal. Pixie dust, apparently.
- Re-balanced block health and level! You can now unlock brick and metal MUCH faster!
- Bullets, lasers, blocks, and coins are now heavily optimized depending on your Quality setting. Potato users rejoice!
- Upgrades are now auto-equipped after purchased from the shop.
