    Reviving Update.jpg
    Hello CubeCrafters,

    This week we're bringing you another Battle Zone update and lots of other network improvements and fixes.

    Battle Zone
    Since Battle Zone has been released we've looked into many different ways to add weapons, defences and teamwork elements to the game. This week, we're happy to announce the implementation of teammate reviving, grenades, grenade launchers and of course another amazing map location!

    Squad Reviving and Downing:
    Ever since Squad mode was introduced many of you wanted the opportunity to be able to save your teammates before they are eliminated from the game, well now you can. When one of your teammates hits the 0 heart mark they will be downed and given 20 seconds of absorption hearts to have the chance to be revived. If your teammates cannot revive you in time then you'll bleed to death and will be fully eliminated. You can also receive damage when you're down as well.

    It takes 8 seconds to fully revive a player. After being revived you'll get a full row of hearts back. If a player takes a lot of damage before dying, they will not have the opportunity to be revived, for example if you've taken a shotgun to the face or you're on 2 hearts and you fall from a high place. If you're the only player left on your team, you will not be able to be revived as no one can revive you.


    Reviving a teammate.

    Grenades and Grenade Launchers:

    It's about time we had some explosives added into Battle Zone. Introducing Grenades and Grenade Launchers! Grenades are rare types of explosives which you can find inside loot chests. Simply throw the projectile at an enemy and it will start ticking down until its fuse runs out, then BOOM! Grenades take 5 seconds to explode but if you throw them into the air and the 5 seconds times out, they will instantly explode on impact rather than exploding mid air.

    Grenades are used as ammo for Grenade Launchers, which fire grenades further than the usual standalone Grenade projectile and will instantly explode on impact. The Grenade Launcher can only hold 1 grenade at time and there's only one type of Grenade and Grenade Launcher. The standalone projectile is rare and the Launcher is Legendary. Grenades and Grenade Launchers destroy built structures, so have fun exploding pesky skybasers out of the sky :D

    The Map:

    Our huge map has been given multiple updates, additions and improvements over the previous weeks. So now it's that time again to announce the new location. It's called "Condo Crossing". It's a modern location dotted with fancy and modern looking houses, and there's a bridge! The location offers metal rich resource such as Cars and air vents, as well as high tier loot chests to help supply your ammo, potions and gun rarity.

    Grenade looks way too overpowerd, when I saw it on the GIF
    I expected it to do a maximum of 10 hearts damage, but that..

    Nice overall update though, good job!
