Developers of The Cycle: Frontier implemented balancing adjustments in the recently released Patch 3.2.0. A couple of these affected items are the Manticore and its Mk2 variant.

The Manticore is a heavy-hitting assault rifle in The: Cycle Frontier. Although its accuracy leaves much to be desired, players who can tame this beast can obliterate enemies due to its high damage output.

However, it seems that the Manticore is just too powerful, especially for those who can hit enemies consistently in the head. That’s why in Patch 3.2.0, the headshot multiplier for the regular Manticore and its Mk2 variant has been reduced from x1.7 to x1.5.

This update brought some game improvements as well. The max stack size of Letium has increased from 10 to 20. On top of that, an audio cue is added that lets players know if their armor has reached zero durability.
