Roboquest – Arsenal Update Patch-Notes April 15

Here are the patch-notes for the 1.2 version of Roboquest: the Arsenal Update.
Find the release announcement here.

Patch-Notes 1.2



  • New resource: Crystal Powder
    • Crystal Powder can be acquired at the end of levels containing a Corrupted Crystal you've already claimed
    • Crystal Powder is used to increase a weapon's rarity from Epic to Fantastic in the new friendly robot Willy Wonder (view in the Friendly Robots section later)
  • New keyword: Summon
    • Summoning is the action of deploying allies like drones, decoy, sentry turrets and everything else that is tagged as Summon in its description
    • Several ingame elements such as Perks and Items grants bonus effects to your Summons
    • Reworked several parts of the code to make sure your summons apply your additional effect like "marking burns"


  • Several perks have been reworked to now include the Summon keyword


  • New weapons:
    • Missile Battery - We had a minigun but we didn't have a ROCKET minigun.
    • Rapier - En garde!
    • Sling Gun - And the stone goes boom!
    • Minion Box - Raise my minions!
    • Mini Cricket - We liked that gun from a famous movie with aliens. Such boomer times.
    • Gauss Rifle - Pro Quake player, anyone?
    • Bee Cannon - A mysterious vacuum that shoots bees.
    • Boomerang - Whoosh in and whoosh out.
    • Shuriken - For all the robot-ninja mains out there (you know who I'm talking about).
  • The damage of summons deployed by alt-fires has been increased by 15% per weapon level to 20% per weapon level
  • Overall increase of the explosion radius for all weapons (detailed below)


  • Increased Bayonet base damage from 60 to 72 and healing cell bonus drops from 2 to 3

  • Decreased Cadence firerate bonus from 15% to 10%
  • Fragmentation reworked, now works as Buckshot but sends a volley of explosive projectiles
    • Developers' Note: Fragmentation always felt awkward and a bit misplaced due to its graphical implementation and its projectile speed. Replacing it with something that propels several projectiles similar to its origin weapon will probably feel better overall and works best for us in terms of balancing and implementation. Beware Kaboom Buckshot!
  • New affixes:
    • Echo - Additional Ricochet and Ricochet damage
    • Interceptor - Bonus damage against flying enemies
    • Big-Game - Bonus damage against elites, goliaths and bosses

    • Developers' Note: The "burn or explosion" part of the description was always confusing for players so we're splitting that into two items.
