    v1.5
    • New "Roundstats" panel. A new GUI element that pops up when the fight is over and shows interesting stats about the round that has happened.
    • New interesting bugbait, the first weapon that does damage to players! It explodes on water contact where it creates a gas-cloud. This gas-cloud hurts people every second.
    • New rocketlauncher. This is intended to replace the old RPG. This rocket launcher uses an unguided rocket, like a bazooka. It still sets props on fire, but requires more skill. Will be balanced depending on feedback.
    • Thirdperson camera (accessible through Settings tab)
    • Server 2 is now back up. This server has temporarly been set to 66 tick compared to #1 which currently is 33 tick. This means more calculations and less choppyness, but it also means more lag if the server can't handle it, which we don't know for sure right now, so its testing.
    • You can now get 10 tokens by joining our group. Click Store tab, Tokens tab, and check the bottom there.
    • Prop reusing after round now heals all your props, this in turn also makes it cost slightly more.
    • Chat backspacing is now fast and nice
    • If you're on windows you can now see the garrysmod icon blink whenever theres 10 seconds left on the build or fight phases
    • Fixed issues with harpoon and combat bow scaling
    • Fixed sniper scope overlay being ontop of chat and other hud elements
    • Probably something else
