0.44.1, June 2, 2016 - Awards!

New Supporter Weapons:

  • As voted by the public, we have released two new supporter Melees: Short Sword and Mjolnir

Added Awards:

  • We've added 44 awards which are awarded for doing various cool things in game.
  • There's an award screen which you can use to see what they are and which one's you've received.

Added XP system:

  • XP is earned by receiving awards. XP is a fun stat which gives you progression for playing Reflex, and allows you to see how long your opponents have played Reflex too. We'd like to attach XP to player drops further down the line.

Added Steam Stats Integration:

  • We've added some fun statistics to allow you to track your adventures through Reflex.

UI improvements:

  • Added KillFeed with lots of new unique death SVGs

Lua improvements:

  • Added Lua var player.weapon[].isAllowed which indicates if you're in a weapon restrictor

  • SVGs can now be blurred (they are converted to single colour in the progress)
  • Exposed nvgLineHeight()
  • Added weaponDefinitions table so you don't need a player to get weapon name & colours

  • Shotgun reload changed from 1000ms to 800ms
