Ironward Games has launched Patch 1.6.5 for Red Solstice 2: Survivors. The latest update balances barricades and improves select skills and UI elements.

Barricades now give added suppression per bullet or projectile. However, aiming and overwatch time has been reduced by a whopping 70%, and reload has also been decreased by 40%.

For those who do not know, the Overwatch mechanic will let your character aim and shoot enemies that get inside a fairly large radius automatically. Now, if you are using a barricade, the Overwatch time is reduced, which likely means that the devs do not want you to stay there for a long time.

It is also worth noting that barricades offer more protection now because you cannot be grabbed when you are near them.

As for skills, Scan Area has been improved in that it now shows items and monsters within a particular sector when used. Those who are trigger happy will be glad to know that the energy cost for Rapid fire is reduced to two.
