Avast ye landlubbers! The Horzine team is happy to present to you the seasonal Perilous Plunder update! Prepare yourselves to board into the dark facilities of Desolation. Light it up and search for any clue about the Patriarch. Also, loot with caution and test yourselves in the combat training room or firing range. Alongside this, we have some new weapons to introduce to everyone. By courtesy of the Horzine Research Group, we finished development of the HRG Kaboomstick and the HRG Teslauncher. But that's not all, the Glock 18c and the space pirate favorite, the Blunderbuss, will now be available for purchase. Use them to slay any scurvy Zed you find out there. Now, rise the Jolly Roger and let the plundering begin!

Edited: Event Ends on 7 / 7/ 2020 Fixed to reflect the correct date that was set internally. We apologize for the confusion and any inconvenience over the incorrect date previously given.

Merc Report - M&Ms

Mercs,

After extensive and continued study of bloat bile, the lab coats have managed to re-weaponize it in the form of proximity mine deployable via a Medic launcher device (they tell us you don’t want to be too close, just in case something goes wrong, but also assure us that there are beneficial properties for your team).



May we introduce you to the latest in Horzine medtech research. They call it the Mine Reconstructor. In the field, it can be charged up to deploy mines of different sizes which will increase the damage, radius, and healing properties (And don’t forget you can manually detonate for your teammates who may be down range). Get ready to belch some rounds downrange! You will of course understand that the source of the grenade material is classified.

While the Medics are laying a trap, someone needs to cover the backwards advance to safety, and go full Commando. This one is pretty simple, the...

Merc Report - Shock and Firewall

Hello Mercs,

The lab coats have been at it again so we are happy to share some information about new Horzine Research Group (HRG) experiments we feel you’ll enjoy bringing into the field.

First up, the HRG Scorcher. The team has modified this baby to shoot flares out downrange with significant impact and a lingering burn. Other pros? Your target (or that wall you hit because you missed your target...) will keep everything around it lit up for easy target acquisition by you and your team!



Now for those looking for something a little more indirect you can try out the alt-fire which will have the flare break up in flight leaving a line of ground fire between you and the target. So get out there Firebugs, and blaze a trail!

The last thing the team has been working on comes from observing your fights with the Matriarch in the field and the weapons she has brought to bear against you. The lab coats weren’t about to...

Mercs,

It’s getting to be that time of year where the strange, weird, mysterious, and lets just through this out there, downright demonic seem to pop up... even more so than usual given your line of work.

Some of our surveillance drones around London have picked up just such an event, so we are sending you in to figure out what's happening, and more importantly, shut it down. The surveillance has picked up a cry from the streets close to some of your old haunts. Specifically the rail station formerly known as Kings Cross.



You won’t find any kids waving sticks at you on this visit, nor friendly pet shop boys waiting to sell you goods around the concourse. Things have taken a decidedly more hellish mark. And whatever world these portals lead you to, we want nothing to do with. But perhaps you can make use of some of the strangeness you will find yourself around for extra power... just remember, these sorts of...

Merc Report - Merc Interfacing Improvements

  • 4,764
  • 15
Hello Mercs!

As part of our efforts to continuously improve your in-field experience, the techs have lined up some enhancements across perk abilities, interface and more!

First up is a re-work of the Medic 25 perk Zedative to make it a more compelling choice for the healing mercs out there. Zedative now does the following:
  • During Zed time your perk weapons damage is increased 30%, and your kills generate a toxic explosion that damages Zeds and heal players.

For those not as familiar with the current live Zedative ability, this adds the healing ability to the toxic cloud generated on the ZED deaths. So those who like to live dangerously, life is about to get a little easier for your Medics who have been trying to keep you alive.

The Boss Stomp, a “high” risk and reward method of dealing massive amounts of damage. Currently this method of attack is usable due to the...

June 5th Update: This update has begun deployment: https://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/index.php?threads/maneater-hotfix-is-live.2336010/

June 3rd Update: As I mentioned yesterday, we had to restart the process due to issues found in the last build. Due to this happening we also took the chance to incorporate some additional fixes that were waiting on a future update. The patch notes have been updated to reflect these additions.

June 2 UPDATE: During the testing of the build, issues popped up around the save system, which has required more work and additional testing to be done. We are currently aiming to have a new Relesase Candidate (what we would upload to the platforms) in test by later today or early tomorrow with a goal of getting this update out later this week still.

Hey Sharks!

First of all, we want to thank all of you fin-atics for diving into the world of Maneater. We have been thrilled to see so many of you experience what we’ve created, and yes we hear you, many of you want more to bite on! Don’t worry, we are prototyping, and reading your suggestions on what sorts of DLC (or Downloadable Chum) we can send you via the waves of the internet and will be discussing those plans in the future.

That said, we know some of you are running into choppy waters, and want to assure you that we are working hard to address these issues as fast as we can. Currently our top priorities are the following items:
  • Save game loss/corruption and progression issues
  • Performance and crashes issues

And we are aiming to get an update out next week for PC, PS4 and Xbox One (updates may have some platform dependent timings) to address a majority of these. To help keep some of these issues from impacting you if you do find yourself...

Hello Mercs,

Last week we gave you intel on an old outpost that may have information on the Patriarch’s whereabouts. We won’t be sending you empty-handed. Horzine research and design has a few new additions for you to consider adding to your arsenal.


For the Demolitionists out there that are always asking “What else can we blow up, and how?”, we have the new HRG Kaboomstick. Fans of the HX25 Pistol will appreciate the increased pellets, double the magazine size. It has an alt-fire for even more boom when firing both barrels at once. Perfect for clearing away those pesky Zeds that have come in a little too close for your liking... and arming distance!


For the Berzerkers, a new ranged weapon. The HRG Teslauncher fires microwave rounds and has an alt-fire guaranteed to give mercs a shockingly good time. This assault rifle...
