Patch 1.02 now available for PS4

MilitAnt Patch 1.02 PS4

Hello everybody!

Here’s the list of changes:

Gameplay:
– Small Health Drop chance from 1%(100 HP)-15%(1 HP) depending on health percentage to 10%(100 HP) – 57%(1 HP).
– Small Health Drops now disappear after 5 seconds (they will start blinking after the 3 second mark).
– Added a location particle before the termites spawn.
– If the spawner has double enemy spawns, it’ll pop the particle before the second enemy comes online.
– Fixed some menu input bugs.
– Fixed a bug that made you lose the aim in the Mantis Twins boss fight too early.

Aiming

– Aiming now works while rotating the joystick, not just tapping. When rotate is active speed is decreased, helping the player for a more precise aiming.

– Tap still works as intended.

– Added a smooth visual cue when entering target/locking into enemies.

– Enemies target/lock-on hitbox are 1.8x larger.

– Enemies that are locked-on and rendered outside the scene now stay “awake.” (This means they can shoot at the player, the Ant won’t lose target and they can be hurt). They will become invulnerable and won’t shoot if the lock-on is removed.

– Enemies on a given radius around the locked-on target will stay “awake”.

– After an enemy has been rendered out from the camera and locked-on, a timer will start. After 5 seconds the Ant will lose the lock-on.
Ant:
– Extended the range of the knives/melee attack below the Ant. Melee now kills enemies underneath.

– The Ant can now bounce bullets from its back.

– Melee can now destroy destructible objects.

– Invincibility time from .25 seconds to 1.25 seconds.

– The Ant can now start a double jump while falling/in the air, rather than entering directly to the second jump.

Level 1:
– Removed the triple spawn point on the Spec-Ops termite in the RoachTank Battle section. (Spec-Ops Termites will still spawn once).

– Added a radius to their spawn points that prevents enemies from spawning right in front of the Ant or underneath.
