There’s a huge difference in velocity on all ammo types. At first, most of us goes for the most damage and penetration, but we often forget the importance of the bullet speed, which affects the drop and so forth. Hopefully, this will help you out even more when choosing the right type of ammo!

– Scavs will no longer have VOG grenades. They were sniping players without having a chance to avoid them.

– Increase spawn chance of bosses

– Killa’s 6B13 M armor now will spawn with 100% chance (as it was)

– upped 12/70 and 20/70 ammo (ammo page is up to date with these changes)

Wow, I sure was missing some items from the Quest items page. Sorry about that! It’s now safe to use it as a reference as it is up to date.

The page has now an updated stamp so you can see what date it was last updated. Also, if you find something that’s wrong. Please let me know!

BSG keeps modifying ammo and we have to keep up! A lot of changes have been made. Some slight ones and some bigger ones. The bigger updates were done at once on the page but the latest patches have had some silent changes to ammo that now should be updated 🙂

I’ve wandered around the tunnels of Reserve in search for some sweet loot and really being a safe way up to the dome and extraction. I never liked the hermetic door nor the train. Now Reserve is connected underground with the main buildings and it’s brilliant! New extraction and a LOT of firefight.
Maybe it’s time to stick to the outdoors now 🙂

Do you know of an updated map? please let me know so I can add it to the maps page

BSG keeps on working towards a better solution to fight off Real Money Transfers and cheating. This time they are hitting on the stacking of bags on a character.

Their official tweet:

The change affects the bigger backpacks that had more inventory slots than they took up, like beta2. The smaller backpacks, berkut and below are still able to stack in character.

Do you have stacked backpacks on your character? this reddit post by saviorx32s might help you out then

Reddit user UltraeVires has posted a much cheaper alternative than the one found on the official Wiki.

You can find his post here or just read below:

Most people are using the Wiki to complete these quests:

The Magpul M-LOK and the Hogue pistol grip cannot be bought at Traders, so are each at an extortionate ₽60,000+ on the Flea Market at time of posting (currently there aren’t any Hogue’s left at all).

I played around with the attachments and came across a cheaper alternative, saving +₽60,000:

  • Magpul MOE AR-15 Pistol Grip – the two colour options are going for around ₽20,000 on Flea
  • Magpul M-LOK 4.1 inch guide – Mechanic LL2, ₽1,600
  • Attach the above to any foregrip with +6 ergonomics or higher, I used;
    Zenit RK-5 – Skier LL3 or ₽10,000 on Flea
    (I haven’t tried: KAC vertical pistol grip / Tango Down stubby)

This leaves the build short by +2 ergo, so I replaced the stock charge handle:

  • Raptor Charging Handle for AR-15 – Skier LL3 or ₽20,000 on Flea
    – or –
  • Geissele ACH charging handle for AR-15 – ₽10,000 on Flea (few get listed)

This can save you at least ₽60k at the current Flea prices. Be sure to thank me by chucking my gear in a bush.

As always, Battlestate enjoys changing stuff without telling us. And it’s actually a good thing. I enjoy finding out changes as they come and not on a generic patch notes list. There’s been some changes to hideout crafting as well and sadly a barter that we all loved has been removed. Two hotrods for a stack of BS ammo.
