Keep things quiet with the Silenced Pistol, now live! Update Notes:

I'm not trying to go against your word but my duo partner always hears this bug and freaks out asking me where those shots came from

There are some instances where the shot doesn't actually decrement your ammo count. I believe those are the ones that nobody else hears. Still investigating though!

Anybody else's daily challenges not refreshing? I bought the battle pass and that one refreshed but it's been two days now and my dailies haven't come back.

There was an error with some accounts getting into a state where the quest is no longer generated. If you send me your in-game name and the platform you play on, I will take a look.

Will it be as quiet/loud as the silenced SMG?

Yeah they have the same audio range for gunfire.

Battle Royale I... am a lucky man.

I mean the name tag even popped up for a second before you walked into it... but nice dodge!

Yeah, you're right. But maybe down the road we could try it. What do you guys think?

Cuz it'll be nuts.


Water blocking bullets will be fixed the next time we push a map update.

How much more damage does it do than a blue pistol?

Epic is 26 damage and Legendary is 28 damage. The Silenced pistol is a progression of the basic Pistol, similar to how the Assault Rifle transitions.

Do you think it is a problem that builds can't go through branches from trees or a small rock? I know that a lot of people, including me, find it really annoying.

Spacial awareness is an important aspect to building. Collecting materials from objects that block building is a part of spacial building awareness.
Terrain that cant be destroyed can be a challenge. The team is always thinking about how to make non-destructible terrain and building interactions better. Like I previously mentioned, we're always looking at how we can make the game better.

Do you like how the building system is currently? Or do you think something can be changed/added etc. ?

I love the building system.
Like everyone else, we always want to figure out how to make things better and more intuitive. Just recently, we changed how building traps work with our existing system in hopes of making it better for you fine folks.

Was it already decided at that time that there would be a PVP mode?

We were testing a lot of PvP stuff for as long as I can remember and before I arrived.

I remember years ago thinking about what PvP would be like with combat building that's as high level as this (that was an unbelievable fight).
What some of you master builders are doing right now is extraordinary!
