This month has been a long month of hard work in regards to the new gameplay features we have been wanting to add for a very long time. We are aware that each player loves different ways to play ballistic weapons, such as the competitive balance of a multiplayer arena, realistic weapon behaviours and even the classic way that the weapons were originally built. The team has been working on bringing all versions of the game together in 4 different ways to play the game. This month, we will be demonstrating what you can expect from the mod in terms of playing the game to your own preferences. Since this has been going on for the last month or so, The Collection will not be releasing a V1.4 update for a good while yet we still want to get the update to your computers. Sit tight and we will get it to you as soon as it is ready. With the work we have been doing on these new parameters, you can expect a rather large 1.4 update. For now though, enjoy the content and happy fragging!

This video shows off the different game styles you are able to choose from. So far we have
Arena is the current mode you have all been playing. This is the default mode of the collection. This mode balances out the weapons in an arena online gameplay style, where it may break realism and may remove content from the classic version. The Classic game style is statistics based off of the classic 2.5 version, where balance of weapons is not considered first choice and the weapons sport different firemodes that they would've been released with. Some weapons may be slightly different as they may sport secondary firemodes, such as the XK2 AMP and the MRS138 Taser. This will be due to the addition of the melee fire button added in Fix and Pro. Since their Alt fire Buttons may be free, there can be additional, non classic firemodes added to the weapons. The Realism game style brings back the famed Kaboodles realism pack into the classic weapons and introduces new opportunities for the newer weapons that didnt get the treatment. The final Tactical game style introduces a PvE aspect to BW, which it has missed out on for years. By balancing the weapons in a "Tier" system to work on evolving the weapons strength against monsters, it shows off a new kind of skill when using the arsenal of weapons provided.
