This is awesome! I hope there aren't too.many unforseen issues. But overall this looks great. New map. Nerfed BF. Nerfed RoF. All players should eventually be in the same player pool for matchmaking. And they made ping a higher priority for matchmaking!

Seems too good to be true Smiley Very Happy

Thanks Naughty Dog

Great news, I might consider starting to play this again. Although I dislike the booster slot swapping.

It's a surprisingly amazing update, but they shouldn't have moved boosters, Slot 2 is more useless for me with Team Safe & Bargain gone.

Slot 1 now has the five most used boosters in the game excluding Revenge (Fleet Foot, Cloaked, Scoped In, & now Team Safe and Bargain)

I really hope they put back Team Safe in slot 2.
