Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Known Issues in 1.0

Unfortunately, we just recently spotted 2 issues that went under our radar:

  • On all platforms: Unlocking Achievements while in offline mode, then reconnecting to online mode won’t grant you the achievements. We are working on a fix to make offline achievements trackable and to also retro-actively validate the ones you unlocked while playing offline while this issue was present. But some of the achievements will require you to unlock them again.
  • On Microsoft platforms: Connecting to a brobot (whether through matchmaking or session ID) will take a longer time than usual. Some attempts might even time out and fail, leading to a connection error. In which case a workaround would be to retry the connection until it works (there is no need to close the game to attempt to reconnect). That specific issue will arise whenever a Microsoft user will attempt to connect to another player (regardless of that other player’s platform).

Of course, we’re already preparing a patch to fix those issues and we apologize for the inconvenience meanwhile.


• Speculative Fix: Mouse inputs should no longer fail to register (leading to not shooting your weapon).

Developers’ Notes: We’ve been on the hunt for this bug since a while now. If you were experiencing this issue before, please make sure to set your display settings to “Fullscreen” prior to testing our implemented fix (as this issue could have two sources: not being in fullscreen or another source relative to your Windows resolution). Our fix should have fixed the “window resolution” issue).

• Added Achievements to the game

New system: Power Crystals!

• A new feature has been added to the game: Power Crystals

New Feature: Quests!

• You can encounter various friendly robots in the game
• Each of this robot has a specific quest for you
• Finding and bringing specific items or performing specific actions is usually required to complete a quest
• Quests unlock various gameplay elements (from level keys to gadgets and others)

New Feature: Museum!

• Max’ Museum is a new structure in the basecamp
• You can consult everything you’ve encountered in Roboquest in the Museum
• You can consult your run history, watch cinematics, have a world overview or track your stats
• You can view every single enemy and weapons, only once you’ve unlocked their specific card
• Each enemy has a chance to drop its card when taken down
• Each weapon needs a specific amount of damage dealt to unlock its card


• Added Achievements to the game
• Reduced Wrench gain per level completed
• Enemies now drop Wrenches to compensate
• Enemies now drop weapons by default
• We removed the “Metal Detector” gadget as a result


• Renamed “Heroes” difficulties to “Guardian”
• Removed “Heroes+6” difficulty
• Renamed “Heroes+1” to “Hard”
• “Heroes+2” to “Heroes+5” difficulties are now called “Guardian I” to “Guardian IV”
• “Guardian IV” is the new final difficulty level
• Increased the difficulty amplitude between two difficulty levels
• Higher difficulty levels now also replaces some basic enemies by harder ones
• Updated the difficulty selector interface
• Increased the difficulty scaling in multiplayer
• Enemy damage reduced in Discovery difficulty from -40% to -50%
• Enemy damage reduced in Easy difficulty from -20% to -25%
• Reduced multiplayer health scaling for all enemies by approximately 10%


• Jump height now scales with movement speed (faster the movement, higher the jump)

Developers’ Notes: For a long time buffing your movement speed was only increasing the horizontal distance you would cover with a jump. We tried out a few things internally recently and realized it would feel way better to also grant a little bit of vertical boost to your jumps once you start stacking movement speed bonuses. We hope you’ll like this change as much as we did.

• Increased health restored by the Heal-Bot
• Modified the base inputs for “Open Perk Selector”, “Drop Weapon” and “Ping” (this should prevent players that didn’t modify those inputs to accidentally drop their weapon)


• Improved gamepad aiming system
• Added a new gamepad option for aim-assist
• Removed some obsolete gamepad options
• Added anchors for gamepad assist for several enemies that were missing one or one that was inconvenient
• The user interface is now fully compatible with the gamepad


• Added a “difficulty selector” to the matchmaking
• Updated the multiplayer interface in the basecamp


• Fully updated the tutorial to contain the most important (yet basic) game mechanics (such as the Powerslide)
• Added new tutorial panels when returning to the basecamp after unlocking new game mechanics (such as the Power Crystals or the Sunglasses)
• Added a new “difficulty recommendation” system to help you select your starting difficulty
• Max is now fully animated during the tutorial


• A new class has been added to the game: the Elementalist
• We won’t spoil anything more, you’ll have to unlock it in the game to find out
• Reduced the requirements to unlock the Engineer from reaching basecamp level 4 to level 3
• Reduced the requirement to unlock the Commando from taking down 1,000 robots to 750
• Increases the requirement to unlock the Recon from taking down any boss in Act 1 to Act 2

Developers’ Notes: This should ensure a different unlock order for classes, based more on difficulty to play and flair than our previous arbitrary order.

• Updated perks for most classes
• Added new perks to all classes
• You can now preview any perks you’ve already picked in a run directly in the class selector
• Fixed an issue with the Recon dash in multiplayer which was very slow when playing as the client
• Removed the automatic gather range for the Ranger’s Javelin

Developers’ Notes: It sometimes led to players missing their shot against very far away enemies because the Javelin was being automatically picked up due to the range limit before it actually hit the targeted enemies.

Balance Changes

• Damage increased from 50.0 to 55.0


• Cooldown increased from 7.0 to 8.0


• Damage increased from 50.0 to 55.0

• Damage increased from 80.0 to 90.0
• Impact force increased from 100.0 to 120.0

• Dual LMG
• The Shovel
• Dual Boomsticks
• We modified or updated all weapon names to have more flair to them
• Updated the gunfeel of several weapons
• Tweaked the balance of some weapon affixes
• Tweaked the balance of some weapon alt-fires
• The Handgun, Buddybot and The Shovel are always of the “Common” rarity (but there’s a new way to get them to a fantastic state)
• Weapons found in the Starter Pack can no longer be Fantastic

Developers’ Notes: This will make sure players are not incentivized to restart the run until they get a Fantastic weapon to start their run with.

• Reduced the cost to upgrade weapons at Smithing Joe
• Increased the range gained by weapon level from 10% to 12.5%

Developers’ Notes: The more you progress in the different levels of the game, the bigger areas become and we felt like weapons were out of range a tad too often. A simple 2.5% boost per level fixed that issue.

Energy Weapons

• When a gameplay description refers to “Reloading” it now applies to both the action of Reloading and Cooling a weapon
• The duration needed to cool energy weapons now depends on the current amount of energy consumption

Developers’ Notes: This was a change we made following your feedback and our analysis of the cooling mechanic we modified in the last update.

• Added two cooling scalable animations for energy weapons based on your current energy consumption
