Y1S1.0 Patch Notes

###### Gameplay - Changed the expiration timing of activated Boosters so their lifespan counts down only during match time, when you're actually playing, rather than all the time, like when you're folding laundry or whatever. - Lowered the XP threshold for each Battle Pass tier to give Battle Pass progression a little more pep. - Tuned Match Bonus XP rewards: MVP and Victory went from 2,000 to 1,000 XP. Draw went from 1,000 to 500. Completion doubled from 2,000 to 4,000 to encourage player stick-to-itiveness....

XDefiant Y1S0.4 Patch Notes

If you thought we wouldn't do another patch in Preseason, you thought wrong! Read more of what is changing in today's Y1S0.4 update.

##### Gameplay

Sped up the process of unlocking weapon attachments by lowering the amount of XP needed to level up your primary weapon, from 3,500 to 3,000, and your secondary weapon, from 1,500 to 1,000. This change is retroactive, meaning your existing weapon levels will likely be even higher now. Pause for polite applause.


XDefiant Y1S0.3 Patch Notes

#### Gameplay

  • Added aiming penalties for players who go to town on the jump/crouch buttons, aka the nuanced tactic of jump spamming, aka the maddening exploit of jump spamming. Opinions vary.
  • Players can now push the package in Escort mode with confidence that their legs won't detach from their torso and strand them, which was a thing that was happening.
