The developers of arena shooter Diabotical have launched Patch 0.20.468, and it resolves some issues with the PNCR. It also brings some improvements, particularly to the tournament and matchmaking systems.

The PNCR (Point’n’Click Rifle) is a long-range instant hit weapon that rewards accurate shots. That’s because this gun deals more damage when opponents are hit consecutively. Having said that, some bugs have been squashed in this update. For instance, the bug that disabled the PNCR’s knockback is now fixed. Furthermore, the issue where the PNCR beam’s visuals do not go through players has been resolved.

In addition, the situation where various issues could result in too many players being on the same team has been addressed. Diabotical has now gotten better in detecting disconnected players in ranked matches as well.

For improvements, there is now an option that allows staff to create a community tournament that will be visible to everyone. Besides that, the algorithm that improves tournament match server selection has been implemented.
