= Quality Life of Changes[]

  • Nurse husks has received a nerf.
    • No matter how many Nurses there are next to a husk, all husks around those Nurses will be healed at the same rate as only one nurse is healing a husk.
  • Husks now deal less damage to player-built structures in Twine Peaks Zones (Power Level 76-160 Zones)
  • Husks no longer are becoming immune to traps when there are far more husks around in a small group.
  • All traps now require the same amount of resources to be crafted. For example, you will need 7 Nuts 'n' Bolts to craft an Uncommon Ceiling Gas Trap but you will need more Nuts 'n' Bolts to craft a Legendary Ceiling Gas Trap. (11). Now you will only need 7 for each variant starting from Uncommon going up to Legendary.
  • Tier 5 Materials will now spawn more frequently in higher-end Twine Peaks Missions rather then Tier 4 Materials. For example, you are more likely to receive Sunbeam Crystals from a Storm Chest in a Power Level 160 Zone instead of Shadowshard Crystals.
  • Trap and Weapon Spawning has been adjusted from destroying an encampment, searching containers, building radar towers and many more. You will no longer get Common weapons or traps in Canny Valley starting with Power Level 46 missions. Uncommon traps or weapons will then be phased out in Twine Peaks starting with power level 76 missions and finally Rare weapons and Traps will be phased out in mid Twine Peaks (power level 100 missions.)
  • Max stack size per item inside the inventory has been increased from 200 to 999.
