Summer Update "Perilous Plunder" is Going Live!

  • 6,928
  • 5

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.

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...

Merc Report - More Explosions, More Bullets

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...

Merc Report - Improving Field Conditions

  • 5,931

Mercs,

As part of our efforts to continuously improve your in-field experience, the techs have lined up some enhancements across your perk abilities, arsenal as well as UI!

Starting with the Seeker Six and Mac10, two weapons that were not getting much field usage. The Seeker Six projectiles are getting a larger explosive radius as well as a slight damage increase combined with a reduced arming distance. This will allow for better trash clearing and nearer explosions, with some risk. The weight is also being reduced to see if this helps it better fit into loadouts.

The Mac 10 is getting a price reduction, sliding it more into a tier between 2 and 3 to better match its current performance against other perk weaponry. This should make it a good choice for Firebugs and Swats looking to step up their firepower a little sooner. As part of this change, we will likely be doing some minor upgrades to its damage and incapacitation power as well.

The following Perk skills are also...

Mercenaries,

Apologies for any confusion, but our previous messaging headers have been co-opted by corporate for some other campaign! If you have nice things, the wonderful team at the main Horzine office is always there to take them (and the credit)... But we digress.

We have intel about your next field locale, which looks to be one of our older black ops complexes. Thought “lost” both in the literal and figurative terms, we’ve found some trace evidence that this may have been done on purpose by the Good Dr, the Patriarch. As they say, science finds a way.


You know what that means, go in, hit the ground running, and find out anything there is to know and report back. This facility features an exterior loading zone and helipad, with an extensive, multi-level interior. If you are a clever merc, you may just be able to get the generators back on. Survival of any intel and assets is a priority and...

What We Are Up To - A Piercing Freeze

  • 4,903
  • 18
Hello everyone,

Today we wanted to go over some upcoming Perk and weapon changes that we feel will improve gameplay and player choice, as always, please let us know if we are on the right track!

The design team has been looking at Perk skills that are fairly lopsided in terms of player choice and has worked on updating their counterparts to make them more viable. These are currently:
  • (Berserker) ZED TIME - Berserker Rage: The heal percentage, fear radius, and fear duration are increased.
  • (Survivalist) ZED TIME - Lockdown: Knockdown, stumble, and stun rates are maxed to better guarantee one will trigger on most Zeds.
  • (Gunslinger) Line em’ Up: Additional penetration will be added to all Gunslinger weapons. The bullets will be able to penetrate through Zeds when they previously could not, depending on the Zed shot.
  • (Firebug) Ground Fire: This now applies to the ground fires generated by the Dragonsbreath, Spitfires, and Molotovs.

And a weapon that is also...
