Update History

v1.0 Patch
  • Paranoia is now equipped instead of quickcast, and hit detection improved, especially at close range
    • Changed the cast paradigm to reward more proactive use of Paranoia over its previous reactive use case. Enemies will receive a warning when the projectile is fired rather than being in the direct path of it. This should make it hit enemies more reliably.'
