PTE 79270 – the Grenadier which could

We’re getting awfully close to that mid-March release, but before then another PTE has been released following on from PTE 79020. Features of this patch include another nerf to radar, further nerfs to walls with increased costs and removal from the Combat Fabber, and a major buff to Grenadiers. Even more importantly, a huge update to the default systems with all the existing systems updated and new ones added for ranked mode!

Uber’s tvinita has said he wants as many people testing this one as possible so check out our guide on installing PTE and then let Uber know what you think.
