The Pistol Party-Up(date)


Say hello to multiplayer challenge runs, new mutators, new items… oh, and did we mention the pistols? There’s gonna be pistols.

Challenge Mode

Introducing Multiplayer Challenge Runs! 

  • Team-up with your friends to take on Superiors together to unlock cosmetic rewards!
  • One player launches a challenge lobby and can invite their friends. All players must have a challenge key.
  • Abandoning a multiplayer challenge run counts as a death.
  • [GALA] Leaderboards are broken into solo, duo, and trio. Placing on any will have the same rewards. Players are scored individually, so you don’t have to play with the same people every time to improve your score.

New Mutators

  • Scrapped (Challenge mode only) – Scraps move at 50% and aren’t worth any points
  • Critical Mass – Crits deal +45% damage, non-crits deal -35% damage
  • Allergic Reaction – Armor and Overshield depletes after 10 seconds of not dealing damage
