HOTFIX: 250802

We're releasing a hotfix to Remnant for all platforms (Steam, Epic, Xbox, and PlayStation 4) with performance improvements, miscellaneous bug fixes, and a variety of balance changes.

Build: 250802

 

[ General ]

 

Life Steal (Leech Ember, Nightmare Spiral, Riven, Tentacle Shot, etc…)

Life Steal is no longer impacted by Triage

DEVELOPER COMMENT: With the inclusion of the Siphoner trait, we found that certain Life Steal items were gaining far too much of a benefit. We removed the interaction but we’ve also increased the baseline Life Steal on some items to help balance them out.

 

Flop & Unarmed Damage

Reworked how Flop Damage is calculated

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Flop is no longer impacted by Unarmed Melee Damage mod as part of a rework of how Flop Damage is calculated. With the previous system it was difficult to produce Unarmed Melee Damage equipment that generated a fun to play flop build and balanced Unarmed build at the same time. In response to this change, Five Fingered Ring and Ring of the Unclean have been rebalanced. Five Fingered Ring has been shifted to open space for the Ring of the Unclean.

 

Corrosion Effect

Reduced total stacks of Corrosion from 6 to 5 (25% total debuff)

DEVELOPER COMMENT: After making changes to how Corrision worked, we found that it became a bit too easy to apply. We left the application mostly the same (RIP Hive Cannon Primary) but reduced the total number of stacks from 6 to 5.

 

Achievement: Hard Bargain

Implemented a fix for Hard Bargain to properly trigger

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Some wires got crossed. We uncrossed them!

 

Survival Mode

Prevented Burden rings from appearing on corpses (still purchasable at vendor)

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Since items auto-equip, players were often getting penalized without realizing it. The rings are still available via vendors (when they show up. We probably should have done this for Warlord’s Armor as well, but we didn’t… so be careful!

 

Miscellaneous

Fixed crash when interacting with a World Stone while equipped with Undying Mod and Labyrinth Armor.

Updated performance across the board.

Dozens of various bug fixes.

 

[ Trinkets ]

 

Stone of Balance
Reduced Ranged/Melee Damage bonus from 15%/15% to 12%/12%

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Stone of Balance launched at 10% and we eventually buffed it to 15%. It became a bit strong for how “easy” it was to wear (no real tradeoff). We feel a slight 3% adjustment was more than fair to keep it in line with other options that have a requirement.

 

Vulcan’s Detonator

Increased Burning damage Scalar from 10% per level 20% per weapon level that applies it

Fixed damage scaling to work when proc’ed by summons

DEVELOPER COMMENT: A tad too weak. Now it’s a bit better. Voila!

 

Ring of the Unclean

Changed to +100% bonus Unarmed Damage (200% total) and +300% Flop Damage (400% total)

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Adjustments made in accordance with our new Flop/Unarmed math!

 

Five-Fingered Ring

Changed to 25% Unarmed Melee, 25% Unarmed Crit Damage, 20% Crit Chance

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Adjustments made in accordance with our new Flop/Unarmed math!

 

Restriction Cord

Fixed a UI issue causing the wrong information to be relayed to the UI

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Basically, the UI would appear to break for health regen items when Restriction Cord was worn. We fixed it.

 

Polished Whetstone

Reduced Crit Damage bonus from 50% to 35%

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Is anyone surprised? This thing was insane. Now it’s just “pretty crazy!”.

 

Black Cat Band

Increased the invulnerability window from 0.5s to 1.5s

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Added an additional second of protection. Now you can actually survive back to back hits once it procs… but you better get to safety once it procs!

 

Scavengers Ring

Added new bonus of +10% Ranged and Mod Damage when player collects Scrap, Iron, or Ammo

DEVELOPER COMMENT: A nice touch to synergize with the Scavenger set. However, you can also wear it without the armor set. It’s up to you. We don’t control you! Live your life!!!

 

Butcher’s Fetish

Increased Crit Chance 10% to 15%

Increased Crit Damage from 20% to 25%.

DEVELOPER COMMENT: A bit stronger to make this a more appealing Amulet option.

 

Devouring Loop

Reduced proc chance from 6% to 5%

CHEEKY COMMENT: Who knew the 1% was so powerful?!

 

Evoker’s Seal

Increased the Mod Power refund from 10% to 15%

DEVELOPER COMMENT: We increased this just a bit to make it more enticing. While not a massive change, it’s definitely noticeable. Give it a try!

 

Burden of the Gambler
The “Burden” can no longer be avoided via Exploiter and Hangman’s Memento

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Just a bug fix.

 

Burden of the Follower
Increased the Fire Rate “Burden” from 25% to 35%

DEVELOPER COMMENT: For how powerful Burden of the Follower’s primary effect was, we felt the “Burden” wasn’t strong enough, so we increased it. We still feel this ring is crazy powerful.

 

[ Armor ]

 

Cultist

Blood Pact Set Bonus: Increased duration bonuses from 15/30/60% to 30/60/100%

DEVELOPER COMMENT: With the recent reworks to Armors, we felt that Cultist was lacking just a bit since it didn’t increase damage and the max 60% duration buff just wasn’t enough to motivate players to wear it. At 100%, it provides a very tangible benefit, and even the 1pc and 2pc bonuses are nicer!

 

Akari

Opportunist Set Bonus: Buff (from perfect dodging) is no longer removed upon taking damage

DEVELOPER COMMENT: You earned the buff. You should keep it.

 

Warlord

Deathwish Set Bonus: Deathwish can no-longer kill player (leaves player at 1 HP)

Deathwish Set Bonus: Reduced 3-PC damage buff from 40% to 35%

DEVELOPER COMMENT: While it’s no longer specifically a “Deathwish”, it’s a bit more fair to players that often found themselves in scenarios where they no longer had enemies to heal from. With death off the table, we reduced the damage buff slightly to compensate.

 

Twisted

Regrowth Set Bonus: Reduced stack removal on damage from 5 to 1

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Removing 5 stacks at once felt a little too penalizing. This should make the armor a bit more viable and a lot more lenient.

 

Scavenger

Salvager Set Bonus:
Reduced stack removal on damage from 5 to 1

Reworked buff timer to remove only 1 stack when timer expires instead of all stacks

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Like Twisted, we reduced the penalty from being hit considerably. We also changed it so stacks wear off one at a time instead of all at once. This should make Scavenger much more viable and way more appealing. Plus, it looks so sweet!

 

Elder

Believer Set Bonus: Adjusted buff behavior when removing armor pieces

DEVELOPER COMMENT: No functionality adjustments… we simply fixed a bug behind the scenes.

 

[ Mods ]

 

Cold Spear

Fixed an issue that caused Cold Spear to display improperly when switching it between weapons

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Bug fix!

 

[ Weapons ]

 

Machine Pistol

Updated text to better reflect functionality (no actual functionality change)

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Previous text referred to this weapon as having high recoil. We removed that text and also added text that reflects the more quiet behavior (compared to other weapons).

 

Hive Cannon | Hive Shot

Primary Fire no longer applies 1x Corrosion Stack

Hive Shot: Projectile (impact) no longer applies 1x Corrosion Stack

Hive Shot: AOE now applies Corrosion at a quicker rate

DEVELOPER COMMENT: After the 2923 patch, the Hive Cannon became ubiquitous in almost every build at the highest level. We wanted to promote a bit more variety, so we kept its “theme” but reduced how easy it was to instantly apply 6 stacks (now 5). This should bring it more in line with other weapons.

 

Curse of the Jungle God | Tentacle Shot

Tentacle Shot: Increased the baseline regen per hit from 1.25 to 4.5 to compensate for loss of Triage

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Since the Tentacles don’t change location, we felt it would be more appropriate if they rewarded more health for controlling an area. The increase was partially due to the Triage fix and partially due to just making it better overall.

 

Spitfire | Flamethrower

Flamethrower: Fixed a bug causing Flame Puddles to deal incorrect (considerably low) damage

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Flame Puddles were doing 5 damage base. They now deal considerably more damage (as intended). Give it a try!

 

Fusion Rifle

Fusion Cannon: Reduced pre-fire delay from 0.6s to 0.35s

Fusion Cannon: Fixed an issue causing the beam to fire in incorrect directions

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Previously, the muzzle point would aim towards the reticule. At close range this was making the shot aim more to the right and up so if you had multiple enemies lined up it would only hit the enemy in the front (not the enemies behind because the front enemy was pulling the trajectory to the right in an extreme way). It now shoots out from the gun’s aiming direction which makes it work at all distances… you know, how we intended!

 

[ Traits ]

 

Vaccine

Trait Level 0 no longer stops you from getting debuff build-up

DEVELOPER COMMENT: Just fixing an oversight.

 

[ MISC ]

 

Wasteland Goodboy

Informed Wasteland (Very) Goodboy about the amount of community love he has been garnering

DEVELOPER COMMENT: I mean, he’s still the goodest boi.
