Weapon and Loot changes

Weapons and loot have been significantly changed in Season 3. To start off, we will look at the changes in hop-ups. Disruptor Rounds and Skullpiercer Rifling has been removed. For Wingman and Longbow, the base headshot damage has been increased from 2.0 to 2.15. Earlier with the Skullpeiercer it was 2.25.

New hop-up Anvil Receiver has been added for Flatline and R-301. It’s a gold level hop-up, meaning it will be rarely be found on the map. The hop-up changes the firing mode for these two weapons from fully-auto to semi-auto.

The hop-up enables two round burst and a decreased rate of fire, but deals high damage per shot. New hop-up Double Tap Trigger has been added for G7 Scout and EVA-8 Auto. It’s a level 3 hop-up and will enable a two quick round burst for these guns.
