Flamethrowers. Need I say more?? The flamethrower has been requested for years and it is finally here in all it's flaming glory! We also have a Molotov Cocktail and a Flare Gun too. Three new weapons ready and waiting to be mastered. All three weapons possess the unique property of fire damage, which deals damage over time, reveals enemies, and sets vehicles on fire!

This version also introduces a very important gameplay tweak which is that enemies are now briefly revealed to you when you damage them. This means you can reveal enemies through walls with AOE skills like Radiate, use Spike Trap as a radar as people cross over it, or track players with damage over time weapons like the Flare Gun. Go experiment and discover all the new potential tactics!
We also have some very sexy graphical improvements with dynamic lighting. The sexiest of them all? Vehicle headlights! The headlights will dynamically light up the map and really add a sense of depth to the game. It also makes it easier to drive in dark areas! We also have better looking explosions, muzzle flashes and projectiles like the Flare Gun that light up the map as they fly though it. Very sexy. Go check it out!
There are also cool new features like a brightness slider for laptop users, a map voting feature at the end of the round and a fun new "King of the Hill" gameplay element added to Battle mode. A special zone in the middle of the map will generate cash over time and any players who walk over it will collect the cash! A simple yet effective way to create a hotly contested area where players fight for control of the cash source.
And of course as usual we have plenty of balance and bug fixes as requested by the community. More fun content will be coming over the following weeks and months as we build up the community in preparation for the big release on Steam. Stay tuned for new updates and come check out all the cool new stuff!!
