Exit the Gungeon update out now (version 2.0.6), patch notes

Posted on April 19, 2020 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Exit the Gungeon was updated on Switch this week to version 2.0.6. Dodge Roll implemented changes related to controls, gameplay, and balancing while also taking care of numerous bugs.

Below are the full patch notes:

Control Changes

  • [Switch] Added full control binding options
  • Added an Easy Air Dodge option: Pressing the Jump button while in the air now triggers an air dodge roll (just as pressing Dodge would)
  • Added a Rapid Descent option: Holding the Down button while jumping or falling will allow you to fall through one-way platforms
  • Added an Aim To Fire option: this allows controller users to fire just by aiming with the right stick, rather than requiring aiming and a separate Fire button
  • Added an Auto-Descend option: this allows players to drop down through platforms by using the down key, rather than requiring Jump + Down
  • Added an Auto-Ascend option: this allows players to jump by using the up button
  • Added a control binding to manually reload weapons (defaults to R on keyboards, or Y/Triangle on controllers; note that if you already have a save file, you’ll need to bind this yourself or reset your bindings to default)
  • Added a Combined Jump/Roll option: this allows players to dodge roll by pressing the Jump button while holding directly left or right
  • Fixed an issue where players could drop down through the floor of some elevators (trains)
  • Fixed a case where an air dodge roll may move in a different direction than the player would expect

Balance Changes

  • Reduced the amount of combo points required to reach early levels (0-10), and increased the points required to reach later levels (12-20). This should allow players to recover more quickly from a combo wipe, but requires the same amount of combo points to reach level 20.
  • Did another balance pass on charged weapons; some were too slow or weak to be viable, especially in later floors. Additionally, tapping the Shoot button no longer fires charged weapons faster than holding the Shoot button down.
  • Several tweaks to the final boss to slightly lower difficulty: reduced HP, increased some pauses before bullets spawn and a few other minor changes
  • Made Sepulchergeist’s tetromino attack slightly slower
  • Wallevator spawns Spent (zombullets) less frequently
  • Lowered health of Medusalier and Low Priest
  • Lowered the health of the Spectral Gun Nut and reduced how frequently he appears in the Hollow elevators
  • Adjusted the fire rate and damage of the Bullet gun and the Shock Rifle
  • Buffed the Makeshift Cannon but limited its shots
  • Lowered Amulet of Pit Lord cooldown
  • Improved Makeshift Cannon and Sling, especially against bosses
  • Buffed the Charge Shot and Blunderbuss
  • Decreased enemy/boss health slightly on all levels but the first
  • Reduced the combo cost of using blanks (they no longer drop your combo level, only clear progress towards the next combo level)
  • Redistributed gun qualities along Combo levels, which should make gun spawns better at lower levels.
  • Increased hegemony credit drop rates (and increased them even further for flawlessing a boss)
  • Wax Wings now give the player the ability to slow down time temporarily by pressing the Jump button
  • Added a cooldown for Spiked Boots’ effect on bosses and tightened up the hit detection (now requires you to land near the head of the enemy)
  • Decreased Scattershot damage and Membrane’s fire rate

Gameplay Changes / Improvements

  • [Switch] New home screen icon to better match ETG’s icon
  • [Switch] The game will now pause correctly when returning to the Nintendo home screen
  • Charged weapons now automatically begin charging whenever they’re equipped; discharge them by pressing (or releasing) the fire button. This means you can continue to press and hold fire to use charged weapons, but if you’re just repeatedly pressing fire, they should now just fire when ready
  • Fixed an issue where some guns could be fired faster than intended when the fire button was pressed rapidly, which caused both game imbalance and cramped trigger fingers
  • Added interaction outlines to the doorways in the Marine’s second elevator to indicate that the player needs to enter a room to continue
  • Casey will reflect ownerless projectiles (notably Bullats); reflected bullets/enemies will also fly faster and with more force
  • Added cursor customization options, including shape, size, color, and transparency
  • Added an option to enable the cursor while using a controller
  • The current weapon UI now shows the remaining ammo in the clip
  • Added very low reload times to certain weapons with extremely large magazine clips to work better with manual reload and displayed remaining ammo
  • Chests can no longer be damaged in certain states (e.g. while spawning or opening)
  • Set a maximum fall speed for the player
  • Added new tutorial lines to cover new control options, clarify that the player can dodge roll while in the air, and that blanks can be activated by pressing both thumbsticks in (L3 + R3).
  • Improved audio for Unicorn Horn and Crown of Guns
  • Added stricter spacing rules for the climbing elevator, which should prevent requiring very long jumps
  • Phase Spiders that spawn in rooms should now always be placed near the ceiling
  • Homing weapons now work better with the final boss
  • Новый русский шрифт! (New Russian font!)
  • Improved controller icon handling for many controllers
  • Increased the max distance of laser sights to make Snipers more fair in very large rooms
  • Moved the achievement unlock point in Old Red’s quest to the turn-in step instead of the reward step
  • Charged weapons no longer fire when going through doors
  • Added a failsafe to detect and kill enemies that are stuck outside of rooms in the rare case that this happens (which would previously cause a softlock in the room)
  • Just Desserts Golfing will now let you swing at any zoom level
  • Enemies now drop currency when transmogrified
  • Gave Hattori more clear dialogue when temporarily out of stock
  • The Machine Fist explosion will no longer hurt the player
  • Added 3d backgrounds
