The highly requested spectator camera is being added to Super Squad! Invite your friends to a custom lobby, by clicking the "10 player" button at the top of your squad on the play screen.

This additional info will help you all really dive into the stats and see how you dominated the battlefield!

- Flintlock, the suave pirate who can never get enough booty

- Scorch, the gadget loving pyromaniac from the Military


Tank:

- Skull Crusher, the smallest Giant from the island of Behemoth, dominates points and knocks skulls together whenever he's on the battlefield.


Healer:

- Florp, the alien medic that just wants people to stop shooting at him

Quality of Life Changes

  • Refined the way our pak files work. This patch will be a big update, but future patches will be much quicker!

 

Bug Fixes

  • fixed an issue where audio for abilities wasn’t adjusting to the volume sliders correctly,

  • fixed an issue where players were getting stuck in the ground inside of spawn in The Abandoned Town map,

  • fixed an issue where players were getting stuck inside of objects on the Military base map and Frosty Hallows,

  • Fixed an issue where trails of PFX were ending before they should,

  • Refined the way that people are added to squads and custom lobbies, fixing some of the display issues that you’ve been seeing while on the main menu.

 

Known Issues

  • If you finish or get past the movement section of the tutorial, go back to the main menu, and then play through the tutorial again it won't load correctly and will think you're on the camera movement section. If you exit out and reload the tutorial it will work fine.

  • During the movement section of the tutorial you won't be moved to the center of the pads correctly. You will after the shooting objective of the tutorial.

  • Sometimes players can be stuck on the loading screen between squad select and playing on the map.

  • By pressing the ` key (next to 1 on qwerty keyboards) you will enter an Ai testing mode. This has no in game benefits for players, but we’re running dev builds so we can debug the game. If you do this your camera can get disconnected from your character. If you do this in base you can get stuck in base.

  • Some players are experiencing random crashes. Some of these have been fixed, but there may be more. If you experience this then join the discord and send over your log files to BadFox_Eddie. You can ask him how to get your log files and he'll help!

  • Borderless/Windowed/Fullscreen don't seem to be setting properly, working on a fix.

  • We've had one instance of Trooper's spawning with the incorrect UI, we're keeping an eye out for this, but haven't had any additional instances of the bug.

  • Sometimes Scorch's turret seems to be firing 2 projectiles - any more information on this would be much appreciated.

  • Sometimes when adding players to a party their names are not be visible. They are in your party and is just a visibility bug.
