[PC & Console] Easter Patch Announcement 1.20.0 (1227)

Hello everyone,

A new patch is going up onto the Live servers for PC. This patch will be happening on Wednesday 4/1/2020. The Patch is scheduled to start at 9 AM UTC and will last up to 4 hours. Console will have its normal maintenance starting at 9 AM UTC as well.


This is a big patch, and there are many things to tease out of it, from our Easter event to adding a guaranteed 100 Joker Tickets to every Joker Mystery Box.

First, we wanted the ensure that there were no feel bad moments with our Joker Ticket drops, so we made it impossible to get 0 JT from doing opposed missions. Please note that you will still get your other rewards from doing missions, but that currently the reward UI will only show JT at this time. This is a known bug, and we are already working on a fix.

Second, we have disabled the Radar Tower Car Mod. When it was originally brought to our attention that this mod was not working correctly, we did an extensive deep dive on what was wrong with the mod and how it functioned. After doing our initial investigation, we decided that the mod, while broken at times, was not exploitable. However, in recent weeks it has come to our attention that there is, in fact, a way to exploit this mod, so we are going to be disabling it for the time being. The choice to disable this mod is not one we make lightly, but we feel it is the best choice at this time. Fixing the mod now would take crucial engineer time away from the 2.1 Engine Upgrade and delay critical projects like our upcoming Beta test. Disabling the mod was the best way we could preserve your play experience while keeping these projects on track. We will revisit this mod in the future to get it working correctly again as soon as we are able.

Into The Hopper - Beta Info

We have a lot of exciting news to share with you this month, from new guns for the Joker Ticket store to new Eastern European servers which are on their way. We have our upcoming Easter Event, an extension of Joker Madness, and some news on our upcoming APB 2.1 beta test. We have so many things to share, in fact, that we are starting the party a little early. Here is your “April” download with all the cool things coming with our next patch!

The Madness continues

In March, we introduced the Joker Madness event. This event tripled Joker Ticket rewards in Action Districts and doubled their drop rates. Since then, we have been closely monitoring both the economy and player feedback on this event. We are quite happy with both, so we will be extending the March Madness drop rates! Not only that, but we are upping the Joker Ticket floor as well. With the next patch, it will no longer be possible to get 0 Joker Tickets as a reward, and consumables will drop independently of Joker Tickets. We hope this change will make gaining Joker Tickets feel smoother for everyone.

100 JT in Every Joker Mystery Box!

When we relased JMB 23, we gave it a guarenteed 100 Joker Ticket value. Matt spoke briefly about these changes, and mentioned that this was one small step towards reworking the JMB system. We want to remove some of the random elements from this system, and adding guarenteed tickets was a way for us to work towards that goal while keeping our engineers focused on the engine upgrade.

We have been happy with the results so far, so with our next patch we will be extending the 100 guarenteed Joker Tickets to all Joker Mystery Boxes! We hope you enjoy this nice bonus while we continue to work on JMBs in the future.

New guns in the Joker Ticket store

With all the new ways for you to get Joker Tickets, we wanted to make sure even long-time players had something fun to spend their tickets on. That is why, with this new patch, we will be adding 17 new guns to the Joker Store. Not only that, but two of these guns will be Joker Store exclusives:

Both the Colby Classic (a skinnable version of the Colby Commander legendary without the legendary mod) and the Joker C9S EX-III JT2 PR1 (a silenced C9) will be unique to the Joker Ticket store. With more guns avaliable through play, this will give players of all levels more things to enjoy.

New servers

We also wanted to let you know that we are adding some new servers in Warsaw to better serve our Eastern European players. We don’t have an exact ETA as to when they will be live given the state of the world right now, but they have been ordered and are on their way. We will keep you guys informed as we learn more.

Unreal 3.5 engine upgrade (APB 2.1)

If you haven’t been following along with our Engine Upgrade Thread already, we have a few important pieces of news for you. First, is that a beta test of the client is in the works. We don’t have an exact date for the beta test just yet, but it will run for a weekend and initially be limited to Social and Asylum districts. Second, we will give you guys as much notice as we can before we run the test, so be on the lookout for announcements from us. Our plan is to have the beta client download link active for a week before opening the servers so anyone who is interested will have time to download and install the client properly. Third, our CEO continues to post updates on our Engine Upgrade progress every Saturday, so be sure to check in and stay up to date as we get close to a first look at the beta!

Egg Hunt 2020

The Egg Hunt is back!

Starting April 1st, collect as many eggs as you can within a set time by mugging bunnies, chickens and other players in special Easter versions of Financial and Waterfront. Earn several new titles and some sweet Joker Tickets!

Find bunnies and chickens walking around the city, and mug them to steal their eggs. Bunnies carry 1 egg each, and chickens carry up to 5 eggs.

If you're feeling extra spiteful on this festive day, then mug other players and steal all their eggs. If it's just too dicey, you can take out players for half of their egg supply (rounded to the nearest whole number).

You may deliver any eggs you are carrying to contacts, which will prevent them from being stolen. Keep the following in mind:

    The Easter Egg Hunt is a free-for-all event, with no teams or factions.
    Each game lasts 20 minutes.
    After mugging a chicken, bunny, or player you will receive a speed boost and become invulnerable for a short time. This egg shield will allow you to make a quick escape and it's indicated by a ring of floating eggs appearing around your character.
    While invulnerable you will not be allowed to use any weapons, and the effect will be cancelled if you enter a vehicle or activate certain character mods.
    Other players cannot interfere while you are mugging someone.
    While you're carrying the top 20% number of eggs in the district you will not be able to return to the lobby, so be sure to drop your eggs off at a contact first before heading out.
    If you have the highest number of eggs, then you will become an Egg Lord! You will be visible to other players on the map making you easier to hunt down until you drop off your eggs.

JMB 23 - The New Corsair

Hi everyone, this is Matt, and this month I thought I would take some time to talk about the new JMB, where we plan to go with the JMB system, and our choice to add a new legendary shotgun.

To start, I would like to reassure everyone that these additions did not take away from our Engine Upgrade efforts. Everything we added used systems we already had in place. We are trying to walk the line between providing fun content the community asks for, moving forward on our own goals for updating systems to be fairer and more fun, and not taking away from our push to complete the Engine Upgrade.

Next, I liked the idea of releasing a slug shotgun for our new legendary because this is something we see commonly requested, and it felt thematically aligned with our newly released shotgun balance stats. If you are curious, this is what the Corsair slug shotgun stats look like.

You can find lore and a picture of the Corsair in our original announcement.

I do want to acknowledge that I had hoped to significantly alter the JMB system by now. There is a plan in place that I think players will enjoy, but we just haven’t had the time to implement it yet. Having said that, Little Orbit has only released 2 legendaries in the 22 months since we took over, and it feels like we are quite a bit overdue. Even so, I still want to reduce the randomized loot aspect of these boxes.

So, since it’s Joker Madness month, I have decided that in addition to the random rewards, JMB 23 will also give a guaranteed amount of Joker Tickets. That means regardless of whether you get the legendary you’re chasing, you will still earn tickets that can be spent in the Joker Store for other permanent guns. This is a baby step. But since it didn’t involve reworking any other systems, we were able to implement it right away as an experiment.

If you’d like to check it out for yourself, JMB 23 is now available in ARMAS. I hope you enjoy the new legendary shotgun as we continue full steam on the Engine Upgrade.

Patch Build number - 1.20.0 (1219)

A new patch is going up onto the Live servers for PC. This patch will be happening on Wednesday 3/4/2020. The Patch is scheduled to start at 9 AM UTC and will last up to 4 hours. Console will have its normal maintenance starting at 9 AM UTC as well.


This week kicks off Joker Madness, where we are greatly increasing both the drop rate and the number of Joker Tickets dropped from opposed missions for the month of March. We are also moving all of the shotgun stats that have been tested into all districts. These stats are what we are comfortable going live with, but they could still be tweaked in the future.


    Moving shotgun stats from Prototype districts into all Districts.
    Doubling drop chance of Joker Tickets from opposed missions for the Joker Madness event.
    Tripling the amount of Joker Tickets dropped from opposed missions for the Joker Madness event.

Joker Madness

Ticket to Fun

This March, get ready for a little mayhem. Starting with our March 4th patch, we will be granting triple Joker Ticket rewards in Action Districts. That’s right, for every mission you complete, you will get three times the Joker Ticket rewards! Not only that, but Joker Ticket drop rates will be doubled! Get more bang for your slaying for a limited time this month. But the madness doesn’t stop there! We are also introducing a new Joker Mystery Box with some improved value.

But first, let’s talk a moment about shotguns.

Going Live

Thanks in large part to your guys’ feedback and testing, we are happy to announce that we have stats we are now comfortable pushing to live. Here are the numbers that will be in the game with our March 4th patch:

After testing the 2017 stats with the help of the community, we found there were some tweaks that needed to be made to ensure that all shotguns were balanced in line with other weapon changes that have been made in the past year. These stats represent a number of iterations from the initial 2017 baseline, and we think they are in a better place than what we have currently. Please note that, while we are pushing these numbers to live, they are not set in stone. A few tweaks will probably be needed in the coming weeks. Please keep an eye out of any changes need to be made, and be sure to let us know in the forums.

Boom, Baby

Now that we’ve covered the changes to live, we want to give you a little preview of a new legendary shotgun that will be appearing in Joker Mystery Box 23: The RHD LS1 "Corsair"

RHD LS1 "Corsair"

This Slug Shotgun from RedHill Homeland Defense was "inspired" by STABBA's NL9 series. Capable of firing powerful slug rounds, users of the Corsair will benefit from precision and power at the cost of your typical 8 round capacity and conventional shotgun spread.

If big risk and big reward is your jam, be sure to keep your eye on ARMAS for this big baby. It will be here March 11th!

Killer Value

We’ve been watching Joker Mystery Boxes closely, and one thing we’ve been wanting to do is increase the guarenteed value of the box. It should always feel good to crack one open. That is why we are happy to announce that opening Joker Mystery Box 23 will always grant 100 Joker Tickets on top of its normal prizes! We’ll be keeping an eye on this system and adjusting as necessary, but this is our first small step towards making sure Joker Mystery Boxes remain a compelling and exciting part of your APB gameplay.
