by

New HQ Crew Playthrough just released of 'Scavenger Sky Adventure'

This week’s patch v9.40 is out! A very big patch this week with a bunch of new additions as well as a lot of gameplay adjustments! We are very excited to share everything with you!

To get you started, we’ve pored over the patch notes to give you a run-down on the major new additions to the game.

You’ll get to use the new Ball Spawner and add physics-based balls to your world to create a whole slew of new game types or player to player interactions!

The Epic and Legendary versions of Tac Shotgun are out! See if you can add them to your maps to bring more dynamic weapon load-outs.

We’ve got Kevin prefabs couple of weeks ago. Well, this week we’ve got the whole Kevin’s Floating Island!

New prefabs and galleries were delivered as well, including Kevin the Crater, Ice Cream consumable, and many more for you to explore!

We’ve got screenshots of all of those below, as well as the new gameplay and settings adjustments and additions. Take a look!
