Fall of Cybertron
Transformers Fall of Cybertron Multi-Player Mode Updated - More Weapons Awesome Added
Jack - Sunday, September 23, 2012

High Moon Studios have updated their web site with some new details on the updates they have made to the Multiplayer aspects of the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron video game. According to High Moon they have been watching how the weapons upgrades systems have been working and they have made a lot of tweaks to make for more weapons choices that work better in game.
We mainly focused on abilities and weapons with our first update, and we're happy with how those changes turned out. We've had enough time to gather data about the weapon and ability upgrades, and it was clear some changes could improve the parity in these choices. So, the focus in this update is to make the upgrade choices better balanced.

  • Energon Recharger - There was more energon recharger camping going on than we would like.  So, the duration of the effect has been cut and half, and speed of healing has been slightly reduced.
  • Ultra-Power Core - Was 20% damage increase, now 30%.  Perhaps this will be a more alluring counter to the recharger.


  • Nucleon Charge Rifle – Although it does require considerable skill to use it well, this is actually the most powerful weapon in the game currently.  So, we're going to try doubling the charge time.
    • Deadeye - Cuts charge time in half instead of a third.
  • Scatter Blaster - 10% increase in fire interval.
    • Sonic Blast - Used to increase fire interval 25%, now only 15%.  Combined with the base fire interval boost, its almost the same.
    • Fireblast - Previous buff wasn't enough, so fire damage per shot is being increased again from 40 to 60.
    • Shotgun Ion Cartridge - Used to be 4 extra shots per clip, now 6.

    • EMP Intercooler - Used to go from 15 to 10, now is 15 to 8.5.

  • Neutron Assault Rifle - 10% boost to damage.
  • Ion Cartridge - Instead of 14 extra bullets per clip, its now 20.
  • Gear Shredder - Another small boost to homing, much smaller than last time.

That title is misleading into thinking there is awesome new weapons when everything is just the same weapons with tweaked stats.
