    I was extremely skeptical. Only COD I've played this gen was BOIII and that was because it was free a few months ago. Absolutely having a blast with this one

    So, they did actually change matchmaking to be by peripheral rather than by platform, right? Bc i'll totally start playing on pc for better performance if so.

    I played a soaring 50s that ended on Loot yesterday. It was madness. People were bouncing rockets back and forth, tossing Port-A-Fortresses and shockwaves launching people left and right, everyone was in the circle but no one was killing each other because everyone was bouncing non-stop across the lake.

    I loved it.

    PS4 is running a beta on cross-platform supposedly. That’ll be a huge landmark for gaming and I’m glad they may be deciding to finally play nice with the other consoles.

      • Consumable typically found around corrupted areas of the map.
      • Using a Shadow Stone will apply ‘Shadow Form’ for a brief period.
      • While in Shadow Form:
        • Unable to use weapons.
        • Become invisible to enemies when stationary.
          • You become more visible and leave behind a Shadow Trail when moving.
        • Gain increased movement speed, jump height and fall damage immunity.

        • The effect lasts 45 seconds but can be exited early by holding down Alt Fire button (aim down sights).
    • Vaulted Impulse Grenade, Suppressed Submachine Gun, Light Machine Gun, Bouncer, and Remote Explosives.
      • All of the weapons/items added to the Vault in patch v6.0 will currently remain available in Playgrounds.
    • Added momentum functionality to Grapplers. When hitting a moving object (vehicle, player), its momentum will be added to your launch force.
      • This only happens when the momentum would be a net gain, you cannot lose momentum.
    • Grappler charges reduced from 15 to 10.
    • Double Barrel damage reduced from 143/150 to 114/120.
    • Reduced Dual Pistol floor loot drop chance from 1.49% to 0.88%.
    Bug Fixes
    • Players will no longer be launched with greater force than intended when using the Grappler in a vehicle.
    • Using a Grappler while using a Launchpad will no longer cause inventory functionality issues.
    • The top half of a players model will no longer clip through walls when using the Grappler while crouched.
    • Fixed a visual issue that could cause the plunger to be visible on the Grappler while the projectile is active.
    • Players are no longer prevented from changing equipment when firing the Grappler while switching weapons.

    GAMEPLAY
    • New Locations
      • Floating Island
      • Corrupted Areas
      • Corn Fields
      • Haunted Castle
      • Drop in and find the rest in-game!
    • Custom Controller Bindings
      • Choosing your configuration has changed to a selector on the left side of the menu.
        • After selecting Custom, the right side of the menu becomes buttons that are selectable. When a button is clicked, it opens a list of actions that can be assigned to that button.
        • Mode selection (Combat, Build) has changed to selectable by triggers. When in either Combat or Build mode, the actions for that mode and the actions that span between modes will appear in the “actions list” to select from.
    • Console - Input-Based Matchmaking
      • Players using a keyboard and mouse on PS4 will now be put into the PC matchmaking pool.
      • Start matchmaking with your preferred input device. You will be queued with the input type you press the “Play” or "Ready" button with.
        • If you start matchmaking with a keyboard and mouse, then you'll be queued in the PC matchmaking pool. However, you'll be able to switch to a controller mid-match if you'd like.
        • If you start matchmaking with a controller, then you'll remain in your platforms normal queue. However, you'll be unable to switch to a keyboard and mouse mid-match.
      • PC players are unaffected by this change. If you use a controller on PC then you'll remain in the PC matchmaking queue.

      • Caused by incorrect acceleration values being sent over the network.
      • This was also sometimes causing other players to appear to be using the wrong skydiving animation.
    PERFORMANCE

    • Optimized performance when many players are on screen.

    AUDIO
    • Players will now have an option in the Locker to select their preferred music choice. Unlock new music from the Season 6 Battle Pass.
    • Changed the processing of footsteps to add more contrast between above/below. Below steps now sound more “echoey” like they’re coming from the basement.
      • Footsteps will decrease in pitch the farther they are below you, and increase in pitch the higher they are above you.

    • Added improvements to Storm visualization, including rain & lightning effects which will increase as the Storm intensifies.
    Bug Fixes
    • A minor visual change has been made to the mesh shirt underneath the arms of the Power Chord Outfit.
      • This is to fix visual issues caused by the mesh shirt during certain animations and emotes.
    REPLAY SYSTEM
    • Replay playback speed can now be adjusted with a controller when the replay HUD is hidden.
    • Moved "High-Quality FX" flag to Lens settings, and automatically hide certain aperture & focus settings if the depth of field effect isn't active.
    • Replays now correctly use the movement keys set in the Input settings.
    • Inverted the default direction of the third person camera to make the controls consistent with all the other cameras.
