ICARUS: Players Can Now Sit on Chairs in Week 49 Update

Week 49 Update
Week 49 Update Steam

The recent Week 49 Update for ICARUS brings some new features that the community has been clamoring for, including the ability to sit on chairs and a new “grenade” that’s more potent at extinguishing flames than other methods.

You can now sit on rustic dining and living room chairs in ICARUS. Finally, you can rest and relax after a long day’s work fighting monsters and completing missions.

Another notable addition in the Week 49 Update is the Water Bomb. Although it is classified as a grenade, the Water Bomb is actually best used to put out fires, not enemies. This is available at Tier 2 and requires five Leathers and 15 Fibers to craft.
