Patch Overview


  • New modes: Annihilation Classic and Annihilation With Defenses
  • New doctrines: Tarantula Turret, Big Shoota Turret, and Shuriken Grav Platform
  • New map: Mortis Vale (3v3) and (2v2)
  • Free skins: House Raven Imperial Knight Paladin, Exalted Wraithknight, and Deathskulls Gorkanaut

General Changes


  • Fixed an issue that makes Elite healing around a player’s HQ and production structures more consistent


  • Mortis Vale (2v2) has been added into the Custom match and Quick-Match map lists
  • Mortis Vale (3v3) has been added into the Custom match and Quick-Match map lists

Space Marine Changes

Tactical Marine


  • Tireless: Speed bonus decreased from 3 to 1.5 *Tireless: Speed bonus will kick in 15 seconds after being out of combat, up from 11 seconds
  • Tireless: Speed bonus now begins 15 seconds after spawning a squad of Tactical Marines, instead of instantly
  • Tireless: A decorator icon now displays your progress towards the speed bonus

We did buff the damage on Tactical Marines significantly, which we do feel was warranted. However, the Tireless doctrine acted as a multiplier. It allowed them to cover too much of the map and gave too big of an advantage in early skirmishes. We will continue to monitor this doctrine’s usage rate and cross-reference its impact on games.



  • Focused Shot: Fixed an issue where slowed targets did not display the slow icon

Imperial Knight Paladin

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where Ion Shield sometimes failed to block certain shots

Imperial Knight Solaria

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where Solaria's weapons were not disabled during the wind down of Gatling Barrage

Bug Fixes

  • Difficulty tuning on several campaign missions (1, 11,12, 13), mostly on Normal difficulty

  • Fixed an issue in Mission 9 where loading a saved game could cause Deffkoptas to fail to enter combat, blocking mission progression
  • Fixed an issue in Mission 13 where Elites sometimes wouldn’t gain experience
  • Fixed a terrain issue on Mission 17 which could cause an Elite to become stuck


  • Fixed most common instances of an issue where spamming hotkeys allowed multiple resource add-ons to be constructed on a single resource point; additional * instances of this bug are still being investigated
