8/15 Game Dev Update

•Weapon Drop: Toys in game, when shot dead, will now drop its weapons on ground. Anyone else may walk onto the weapon and press “E” to swap their current weapon with the one on ground.

•Ammo management: Each weapon now has reserve ammo rather than an infinite ammo supply. To get more ammo during match, either pick up the green Ammo Box in the map, or walk onto a dropped weapon to get its ammo, as long as it’s the same weapon.

•Simplified Economy: In the new build, we’ve simplified the XP system from “Action Award → Score → XP” into “Action Award → XP”. This means that all Action Awards now give XP directly during match.

•Custom Key Configuration: On the home page click the Sprocket icon to enter Settings and check out Control Settings. Now you can assign your own keys to actions in BHB.

•Chat censoring toned down: Modified the list of banned words to be more flexible.

•“Quick Play”: One click that takes you directly into a combat.

•General gameplay Bug fixing
