Patchnotes via Steam Community


Cliffside has got a reimagining with Jake's version of the map Cliffside ReImagined. We're running an event for the next 3 days that let's anybody test it out! It's got new paths and new objective setups. We're looking for all the feedback we can so please leave any of it on the workshop page here:
We will do more play testing in the future but this test is until MAR 23 only!

Note this version of the map is in extreme beta, with few graphics. This is mainly a test of new layouts and gameplay variations.

Greetings Agents and welcome to Intruder update build number 1820!
The Update

We are always looking to make Intruder better, and who is better to listen to than the players themselves? This update brings some fixes to Oceanside and gameplay changes based on suggestions from players like you!

Gameplay Updates

Riot Shield ReBalance

Sick of getting shield rushed? This bulletproof gadget has been a favorite for many players, but may have proved a bit too powerful. We wanted to take away some of the single-sided advantage that the shield gives with these updates:

  • Equip Times: It now takes longer to equip/unequip the Riot Shield. This should encourage players to commit to the shield and rely on teamwork to take out enemies they encounter while using the shield.
  • Usability: While the riot shield was never allowed while prone, it will no longer be allowed while swimming or climbing ladders.

The Riot Shield still retains its ability to block explosives and remains vulnerable to pushes. In fact, it should be safer to push over someone with a shield as they're less likely to swap to another weapon before you can close the gap.

Oceanside Updates

As an official map, Oceanside should be fun and fair to play. Here are some of the changes we made to improve gameplay:

New changes include:

  • Bloon is now usable by the Intruders!
  • Bush Camo also available
  • Placing giant wall tags bug fixed
  • Explosives and sensors now move with the van when it rolls up
  • The van is bulletproof, but now it throws off some cool sparks if you shoot it
  • Swimming under the map is no longer achievable
  • No more standing on top of trees
  • Some exterior cliffs/rocks have been made inaccessible

General Updates

These updates are not specific to a map or gadget, and are aimed at making Intruder more fun to play in general!

  • Greater than level 100 support! Keep gaining levels and unlocks infinitely, if you've got the guts!
  • Certain gadgets can now be used on ladders, but not in water, or underwater, etc.
  • Binoculars can be used in water, but not underwater
  • Players will no longer be able to crouch or prone while swimming.
  • Players who try to fire the rifle without having a high enough balance value will receive a warning message explaining why their shots are inaccurate.
  • The crackling or popping noises that some players experience after shooting an unsuppressed weapon should no longer occur.
  • When hovering over one of your stat charts on the website, the category percentage is now shown.
  • Longer timeouts on map loading for people with slow connections
  • Item Cache optimization after joining a room
  • Ping limit made more lenient

Workshop Highlights Update

Some amazing new maps have been made by community, so we've added some of them to the Workshop Highlights. You can subscribe to any of these maps to host on your own rooms as well!





La Casa

Ocean Facility

Triple Highrise

Intruder Map Maker 2.05b2

Speaking of Map Maker, it's got an update!


New changes include:

  • Bloon pick ups now available to all!
  • UnityEvents make activators more powerful than ever
  • Ladder and Water volume updates
  • Light probe volumes for easier light probe placement!
  • Door editor fixes
  • Other new volume types for SabreCSG


We're looking for animators to do first person weapon/gadget animations as well as 3rd person character animations!


Using Blender is a plus since many of the current animations are made in Blender.

##### **DiD yOu KnOw ThAt!?**  
You can still talk to teammates near your player while piloting the Bloon Cam by using local proximity chat!```
