  • Weapon Damage: The following adjustments have been made to reduce lethality and allow for more engaging PVP combat experiences in Survival Mode.
  • Survival Mode PVP damage bonus multipliers have been removed so that base weapon damage more closely matches Adventure Mode.

  • The maximum damage per shot that can be dealt by weapons in PVP has been reduced.
