Hyper Scape aims to reduce TTK by buffing weapons and nerfing abilities in Patch 0.5

Ubisoft’s latest FPS Battle Royale title ‘Hyper Scape’ has been on PC open beta for a while now. But finally, Ubisoft has now confirmed that Hyper Scape season 1 kicks off on August 11th, and it is coming to PS4 and Xbox One.

But before the full release, Ubisoft will be changing some core features of the game. After receiving player feedback from the Open beta, the devs will be releasing Patch 0.5, where they will address one of the most concerning detail in the game that is the ‘time-to-kill’. Hyper Scape’s TTK is very high compared to other titles like Call of Duty: Warzone, and with the addition of hacks sometimes it can be very frustrating to completely finish a kill.

We believe the core of the issue was indeed that weapons were not dealing enough damage, but also that the shooting windows of opportunity were rendered too short by the very strong presence of mobility or defensive Hacks. So, we have focused our changes on making the weapons more powerful, while preventing the Hacks from being used constantly to escape or eliminate opponents,” stated Ubisoft in their patch notes.
