The mid-season patch for the online hero shooter Paladins is now available. Aside from the RWBY Crossover Pass, the latest update has noteworthy changes to certain items and Champions. One significant change has something to do with “On-Killing-Blow” cards.

If you are new to Paladins, this game uses a card system where cards offer the ability to empower, modify, or enhance Champion skills. Cards are only triggered when a certain condition is met. For instance, the Abyss Walker card for Androxus is only activated after using Nether Step.

That said, cards that are activated on killing blows have been converted to “On-Elimination.” This means that even if you did not land the final blow to an enemy Champion, you’d still gain the card’s effect so long as you’ve inflicted damage to them before they died.

Some balancing changes are also implemented in the RWBY Update, and you can read some of them below:
