Known Issues

ALL Player Demons INSTANT RESURRECT & TEAM HEAL - Power Upgrades

  • Due to our current ability cooldown values exceeding more than 2 digits on Instant Ressurect and Team Heal Power Upgrades, (now up to 3 digits), the UI will not display the full cooldown. This will be fixed in an upcoming patch.

Revenant’s UNSTABLE TRIGGER Upgrade

  • Current description states: “Your Rocket Barrage ability refreshes 3 seconds quicker and shoots more rockets”
  • This is inconsistent with the in-game behavior after the latest BATTLEMODE balance changes

Revenant’s ACROBAT Upgrade

  • Current description states: “Your Jetpack has 40% more capacity, recharges 1 second sooner after touching the ground & Afterburner no longer has a penalty for running out of fuel”
  • This is inconsistent with the in-game behavior after the latest BATTLEMODE balance changes

Revenant’s DEMONIC ONSLAUGHT Power Upgrade

  • Current description states: “Increases your damage output 25% for 10 seconds”
  • This is inconsistent with the in-game behavior after the latest BATTLEMODE balance changes
  • No Armored Buff status message will appear when this is activated
