●System adjustments for playable units
・Adjustments have been made to the ease of hitting SPA (Special Attack).
┗Adjusted the SPA to turn toward the direction of the enemy unit at any time during the SPA cut scene.

In addition, the stepping distance and guidance performance after SPA activation for some units have been adjusted.
※Excluding some units that perform dancing SPA attacks on the spot.

・The effect of some parts, ” Increase the weapon use limit “, which also increased reload time when equipped, has been changed to an effect that does not increase reload time.

●Adjustment of the role “All-Rounder”
・Added “Double SPA recast gauge recovery speed” effect to the effect during Role Actions of All-Rounder in addition to the existing effect.
┗With the adjustment of the SPA’s ease of hitting, it will make it easier to use the All-Rounder’s characteristic, “SPA with higher power than other rolls”.
※For “00 QAN[T]” and “Arios Gundam”, the recovery speed of SPA recast gauge in Trans-Am state is 1.5 times faster.

・The “Stagger effect” of All-Rounder was increased.
┗The “Stagger effect” of each action has been significantly increased, making it easier to take down MAs by continuously targeting the same part of the body.

・Adjustments have been made to allow Role Actions to be used during Role Actions effects.
┗This allows the use of skills generated by Role Actions at any time, as long as the skill gauge has been accumulated.

・The number of repair kits All-Rounder can have has been changed to “5”.

●Adjustment of the role “Infighter”
・In addition to the existing effect, Added “Boost consumption by 0.7x and final damage suffered by 0.8x” to the effect during Role Actions of Infighter.
┗It is now easier to take advantage of the Infighter’s feature of sticking to the enemy and inflicting damage continuously.
※For the types of SPAs like Full Armor Unicorn Gundam, where the roll can be changed from Sharpshooter to Infighter, tt is possible to receive the above effects by using Role Actions during SPA effects.
However, the effect is lost when the effect time of the SPA expires and the roll is returned to its original roll.

┗This allows the use of skills generated by Role Actions at any time, as long as the skill gauge has been accumulated

・Level diff. 4~5→1.5 times    ・Level diff. 4~5→1.1 times

※All of the above missions (EASY, NORMAL and HARD) are subject to this adjustment.
※MAs that appear in missions other than the above are not subject to adjustment.

・Adjusted the ease of downing mobile armor (MA).
┗MAs have ” parts” around each point that can be locked on, and each part has its own value related to down.
When an MA is attacked, the value set individually for each attack accumulates for each part of the body.
When the accumulated value exceeds the value set for the MA, the MA goes into a down state for a certain period, creating a chance to attack.

The down time varies depending on which part of the body is affected.
With this adjustment, the values set for each part of the MA have been adjusted to make it easier to take down overall.
In addition to this adjustment, the All-Rounder has an upwardly modified “Stagger effect,”
making it easier to work with a team that includes the All-Rounder to fight MA.
・Adjusted specifications for Beam Barrier in MA.
┗The interval between breaking the Beam Barrier and the activation of the Beam Barrier has been extended from 30 seconds to 60 seconds.
※Some MAs are not subject to adjustment.

・The duration of the attack effects on both legs after a “Hashmal” pounce attack has been reduced.

●Adjustment of lock-on behavior when destroying enemy units
・When an enemy unit is destroyed, a function has been added to automatically change the lock-on if there is another target that meets the lock-on conditions, or remove the lock-on if there is no target, without an explosion or Breakout performance.
┗Players can turn this function on and off in the options screen so that they can continue to attack and earn combos while locked on to an opponent who is defenseless with zero HP.
This function is turned off by default, so if you wish to use this function, please switch the option setting to on by yourself.

・Fixed a problem in which the pilot level display was not properly reflected when transitioning to the multiplayer lobby after the pilot level had increased on the results screen during multiplayer.
※Please note that this phenomenon is reflected in the increase in the pilot level itself, which is internally reflected in the normal value. This correction has been made to reflect the normal values on the display as well.

・Fixed a problem in certain missions where enemy aircraft would get caught in terrain, etc., or fall out of combat range.

・The special melee attack of “Arios Gundam” has been adjusted so that it is now properly beam.

・The Launching Attack of “Nu Gundam Gundam” has been adjusted so that it is now melee damage.

・Subweapon1 in “Moon Gundam” was described with a Beam icon, but the correct icon is Physical, so the icon description has been corrected.

・The main melee of “Cao Cao Wing Gundam” was indicated with a ranged damage icon, and the icon has been corrected to indicate the correct melee damage.

・Corrections have been made to some playable units.
┗Fixed a problem that prevented the combo of special melee attack in the air to strike down attack for “00 QAN[T]” and “Freedom Gundam” from making combos.

┗Turning the mouse wheel up changes the lock target to the right, and turning it down changes it to the left.

*The default key assignments have been changed since the operation method has been drastically changed from Ver. 1.20 and before.
However, we understand that it would be confusing for players who are already playing the game to change to the default key assignments provided by the game. For this reason, the game does not override these settings.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we kindly ask you to change the settings of the side buttons of the mouse and the multi-Button actions to single presses by yourself.

・Other graphic and text modifications are made.

We apologize for any inconvenience these issues may have caused and ask that you kindly wait for the updates to be released.
