What is in the new update?



Dynamite is the newest weapon to be added to the game and joins other explosives such as the grenade and clinger.

It has uncommon rarity and can be found in stacks of three from floor loot, chests, vending machines, supply llamas, and supply drops.

The throwing range is shorter than a grenade but it can do 70 damage to players and 800 damage to structures.

Once you prepare to throw the dynamite it will have a 5 second fuse before detonating.

The only weapons that will be available for players to use are the hunting rifle, pump shotgun, double barrel shotgun, six shooter and minigun.

Other items available in the game mode are campfires, bandages, medical kits, dynamite and slurp juice.
