General
CelesTus Trust
A new Trust called CelesTus has been formed by Celeste and Titus. CelesTus seeks to steal your power-ups along with your hearts.

Mod Loadouts
Helio has turned the mod system up to 11, so we added 4 point mods for Freelancers in order to accommodate.

Gameplay

Frontline

Asana:
We want to make sure that Asana always has a way to bounce back into the fight.

Brynn:
Brynn thinks more people deserve a shield to the face.

Garrison:
Friend or enemy, nobody calls Garrison a liar!

Missile Barrage
-New 4 point mod: Enough for Everyone - Fires up to 8 missiles. Friendly fire is enabled.

Phaedra:
Phaedra’s been training in the Depths. You could say she’s become a professional now.

Lair

Rampart:
To afford his lifelong dream to become a rocket, Rampart has sold his chassis. He is now being held together with cardboard and tape.

Aegis Protocol
-New 4 point mod: Don’t Let Your Dreams Be Dreams - Rampart transforms into a rocket and blasts off. He can no longer help his team, but gets a personal victory.

Clean Fighting
-New 4 point mod: Wash Your Mouth - Target enemy becomes Scrambled and is not allowed to swear until end of next turn.



Support

Aurora wasn’t making a big enough impact, so we added a way to make her more of a game-changer.

Heart of the Storm
-New 4 point mod: I Decide Who Lives And Dies! - When taunting, you can now select half of the Freelancers affected to be immediately killed.

Dr.Finn:
Dr. Finn felt a little punderwhelming, so we gave his mussels a workout.

Water Spout

Helio:
Given his elite status as a Trust owner, Helio feels he should be in control of picks and bans.

Echo Hammer
-New 4 point mod: Ban Hammer - Echo Hammer now bounces indefinitely, until targets in range are dead, dead, dead, dead, dead.

Khita:
Khita’s been nerfed a lot recently, so we wanted to do something that would increase her versatility again.

Warped Arrow
-New 4 point mod: You Spin Me Right Round - Warped Arrow can now turn up to 360 degrees, but has a chance to give herself butt splinters.

Orion is tired of taking everyone's hits and getting none of the credit.

Atomic Bond
-New 4 point mod: Unlimited Anywhere Plan: Bonds now have unlimited range, talk, and text, but cannot be switched for a minimum of two years.

Su-Ren:
We’re concerned Su-Ren is too mean. This new mod should make her a master of karate and friendship for everyone.

Serenity
-New 4 point mod: Champion of the Sun: Allies healed are now always “Sunny” which increases bad ideas by 50% for the entire match.



Firepower

Blackburn:
We added a few reinforcements to help out Blackburn, although they seem to be battling it out against everyone.

Scorched Earth
-New 4 point mod: Survival of the Fittest - Blackburn’s airship drops survivors randomly and poisonous gas slowly moves in closer each turn.

Celeste:
We had some nerfs intended for Celeste, but found this note when we went looking for them: “Celeste is perfect, no changes are necessary.” - C

Seriously. No changes.
