Patch History[edit | edit]

Patch 1.05

Ability Showstopper.png X - Showstopper

Equip Time Equip Time increased 1.1 >>> 1.4
Equip Time Quick Equip Time increased 0.5 >>> 0.7
Visual VFX reduced when firing rocket
Visual VFX on rocket’s trail slightly reduced
  • With the lethality of Raze’s Showstopper, we wanted to make some changes that will provide enemies more time to plan and acquire Raze when hearing “Fire in the Hole!” Additionally, we have adjusted her VFX so that players are able to notice Raze as she fires, increasing their ability to shoot a Raze that takes riskier plays.

  • Ability Blast Pack.png Q - Blast Pack
    Damage Damage decreased 75 >>> 50
    Damage Damage to objects now consistently does 600
  • Raze’s Blast Pack has been hitting players a bit too hard, able to kill a fully armored enemy in certain situations. We want to reduce this ability’s efficacy at damaging players while sharpening its ability at clearing enemy utility and obstacles.


  • Patch 1.04

    Raze’s ultimate is one of the most impactful in the game and useful in almost any situation. As a result, it is being used a bit too often. So we’re upping the cost by 1, which should help reduce how often players have to face her Showstopper.

    Ultimate Cost [6] 7



    Patch 1.0

    The Blast Pack has proven to be quite strong, especially when chained back-to-back. By reducing the inner maximum damage radius, we hope to reduce the average damage output of this ability while still keeping it powerful.

    Maximum damage radius (meters) [2] 1



    Patch 0.47+

    Raze’s goal is to be a highly-threatening duelist that punishes enemies posted in predictable positions, but we felt like the cluster grenades and their number were creating overly oppressive scenarios. Also, players should be supplied proper gameplay information and the audio cues on all of Raze’s abilities didn’t match their threat, so we changed the audio of each. For example, when the Showstopper is equipped or fired from a distance, players should be able to clearly identify and interpret the threat.

    Audio Tuned and adjusted audio so that it’ll be easier to hear in hectic scenarios
    Ability Paint Shells.png E - Paint Shells
    Amount : [2] 1
    Kill Reset Paint Shells now have a kill reset, requiring players to get 2 kills to refresh cooldown
    Audio Tuned and adjusted audio so that it’ll be easier to hear in hectic scenarios
    Secondary Cluster Fixed an edge case where the secondary cluster of Paint Shells would explode quicker than intended. They now have a minimum duration before exploding.
