Deadside: Update 0.2.7 Introduces the Respawn Beacon and Binoculars

Update 0.2.7 for hardcore multiplayer shooter Deadside is now available on live servers. This patch introduces the respawn beacon that allows you to respawn at any point in the map. The developers have also added a new weapon recoil system and smooth camera adjustment after every shot.

New Features

The respawn beacon is now available in the game. Only one beacon can be active at a time and it can be placed in the vicinity of any base. Keep in mind that the beacon can be destroyed by your enemies, so place it somewhere hidden.

To craft the respawn beacon, you must first find some hidden stashes. You can use the newly added Bearing Finder to search for them. This device produces a flashing light and beeping sounds to let you know if you’re near a stash. Once the device’s signal becomes stable, you can take out a shovel and start digging.

Another item that you can find in various locations on the map is a pair of Binoculars. You can use it to search for enemies or vantage points from a safe distance.

In addition, quick slots four to seven and device slots F1 to F4 are now merged into universal slots. These slots can store devices and consumables for easy access and they won’t take your precious inventory space.
