  • When the time is over or the player shoots the same target, they will gain an extra 5% damage for each stack they were able to get on the next shot. The stacks will remain even if the user changes weapons.

Doctor Home – exotic variation of the M1A QCB Rifle
We’re happy with the fantasy and Exotic mechanic of this weapon, but we agree that it needs a bit of a kick to become a truly valuable alternative to other weapons TD2 has to offer 

  • Increased RPM from 200 to 350
  • Fixed an issue with the armor kit dropping from unmarked targets

 Busy Little Bee – exotic pistol inspired by Lightning Rod
We decided to simplify the mechanics of the Busy Little Bee and refocus on a simpler fantasy. Use the pistol to build a stack, swap weapon to consume the buff.
