New Robo-Ray Pack

“A lot of assembly required!” - Robo-Ray

Be sure to grab your Robo-Ray Pack. Available now!

The Robo Ray Pack introduces a new Hero and Outfit, the BluGlo Injector Backbling, Ray’s Smasher Pickaxe, the Robo Ray Challenges, and entry to Save the World. These exclusive Save the World challenges will earn you 1,000 V-Bucks and 1000 X-Ray Tickets. 

Note: The Cosmetic items of this Pack will be shared through Battle Royale, Save the World and Creative game modes. This new Pack series will have no impact on existing Founder daily login rewards or their V-Bucks earned, which is exclusive to early access Founders. These outfits may appear in the item shop in the future.

One final note, Commanders. The Super Ranged modifier has returned to the Scurvy Shoals Ventures zone with some adjustments to their behavior. Pitchers, Lobbers, and Flingers will once again throw three projectiles but have their damage reduced to 50% against players and now structures. Also, Lobber and Flinger projectiles are now spread so that they don’t bombard the same tile with multiple projectiles as often. Finally, the Super Husk modifier will no longer be applied to mini-boss and Chrome Huskies. 

See you in the Scurvy Shoals!
