Dreadlands: Patch 2.31 Introduces Armor Traits and QoL Improvements

Dreadlands Steam

Patch 2.31 for Dreadlands is now available. It introduces armor traits and quality-of-life improvements, including the ability to open loot boxes anywhere.

Dreadlands is a turn-based strategy game that has a similar art style to Borderlands 3. Here, you’ll choose between three warring factions - each with its own unique pros and cons. You will fight over a resource called Glow, which is quite valuable in the game’s post-apocalyptic setting.

Anyway, the latest update brings armor traits. There are some really good ones, such as Thorns which would give you a chance to proc poison on a melee hit, and Regen which has a chance to activate a Heal over Time effect when hit.

Two new weapon traits have been added as well. Incendiary gives a 35% chance on hit to set a particular target on fire. The second is Firestarter and is similar to the first one, except that this is guaranteed to set the target on fire. However, this is only possible using Epic weapons.

For quality-of-life changes, throwing a grenade in less than four squares will now scatter less. Moreover, you’re now able to move your fighter to the mouse cursor by pressing and holding the move command when outside of combat.
