  • Grenade damage type now has 25% additonal damage against Warthogs and other medium armor ground vehicles.
  • Recycle basic cost return fixed to be 50% for constructed buildings.

  • UNSC Leader powers disabled at the start of Reinforcement Matches.
  • Players no longer receive points for team killing.
  • Self Destructing/Recycling buildings now gives points to opponents.
