    Hello CubeCrafters,

    This week we're bringing you another Battle Zone update and other general network improvements and fixes!

    Currently we have a SALE on our Store! There's up to 40% OFF ranks, Cubelets, T-shirts and more. Visit our store HERE to grab yourself a shiny new rank!

    Battle Zone
    Battle Zone has been getting continuous additions each week, and this week we're proud to introduce new ways to kill or damage your enemies!

    Traps:
    What would Battle Zone be without traps? It's time to bring in all the different ways to damage or even kill other players. Introducing traps! We've added 4 brand new trap like blocks to our game, each with their own reaction and purpose. Each trap has it's own custom design thanks to @StorySays to help you identify them from each other.

    If you're the owner of the trap you'll see heart particles being emitted from it. You can identify if an area has a trap within it as small dark particles will surround the area. To destroy the trap all you need to do is mine it or shoot it a couple of times. There are 4 trap blocks currently, and they are all wall mounted. Poison, Fire, Electric and Wither. Each with it's own trigger radius and reaction.

    The purpose of the trap blocks is to weaken, damage or even kill your enemies. If an enemy gets too close to your trap, it will activate and unload it's dangerous reaction onto them. To place a trap, place it on a wall til the red particles turn blue which tells you you're allow to place there. As soon as the trap is place small red particles will emit from it, which means that it's armed and ready for trapping!

    If you guys have any suggestions or ideas for other trap blocks or placement structures to improve gameplay, comment below or create a thread HERE.

    Miniguns:
    Ever wanted a crazy weapon added to our game? Well now it's time. We've added a fully loaded Minigun to our game! This weapon is a powerful, rapid firing and loud death machine. It comes with 200 ammo pieces pre-loaded, and the weapon takes 1 second to charge up before unleashing havoc. If you've ever been in a sticky situation or in a 4v1, this weapon is perfect for you to kill anything in your path. But remember, every shot counts.


    Minigun in use.


    Other Improvements and features:
    As usual we've also made some minor improvements and added other features to our game!
    • Added death messages for the minigun.
    • Players can no longer step on crops.
    • Breaking structures has been improved.
    • Finally stopped Grenades from being sneaky and creeping into the top inventory bar.
    • Fixed an issue with getting permanent slowness.

    • Fixed an issue with Grenade launchers not accepting Grenades on the last slot of the 3rd row in the inventory.
    • Fixed an issue with a car removing half the car park.
    • Fixed an issue with guns not always damaging structures.

    edit: Actually, the post was probably just made public. Anyways, I'll check the update out when I can. I'm really interested to see what the strategical value is of a trap.

    I've been in plenty of 1v4s in the end of a match due to my team dying because of no coordination so i'm excited to see the minigun come into play!

    Don't feel like traps will be very useful in the game, but besides that. Looks cool.

    Great update, but I think the minigun is way too overpowered.
