Update History

v0.50
  • Sova's Owl Drone now includes a layer of sound for engine rotors.
    • Audio should better reflect thematics, while maintaining how noticeable the previous version of Owl Drone audio was for allies and enemies, as heard in 3rd-person.
  • Added foe coloring for Sova’s Hunter’s Fury.
  • Fixed multiple spots where Sova’s Recon Dart could over-penetrate map geometry—another shout out to everyone that helped with these as well!
