    The minimum time a family must be active for before distributing bullets has been reduced to 1 day during Deathmatch.

  • Feature

    Implemented 3 tier backfire system, enabling you to choose different amounts of backfire for the first, second and third attempts on your life.

  • Change

    Remove minimum level requirement for each Vehicle Theft location.

  • Change

    Level 50 is now 100k points (lowered slightly for a more round figure).

  • Change

    Removed the slight randomness from kill scoring, meaning a scenario which involves the same variables (same level, same amount of bullets, same firearm, same health) on each side, will always yield the same exact result. Due to the nature of how our killing system works (figuring out the opponent's backfire, etc) it's not necessary to have the random element and it can only cause confusion or odd results (e.g. a situation where a shooter would die in backfire when overshooting by only a small amount).

  • Bug Fix

    Made some optimisations to the Slot Machine Statistics tab due to this page loading extremely slowly (previously 10-15 seconds, now under half a second).

  • Change

    Removed automatic name generation for new players, a name must always be chosen before entering the game.

  • Change

    The family garage can now be upgraded to hold 50 vehicles.

  • Change

    Removed Silent vs Gangland kills, replaced with Silencer which costs $500,000. This works the same way as a silent kill previously but guarantees no witnesses (rather than an awkward low chance of a witness). This change has been made to simplify the system and slightly discourage silent kills, it's a revival of how Open Fire worked in a previous version.

  • Change

    Silent kills no longer have witnesses.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed the lowercase :p emoji.

  • Bug Fix

    Fixed family bank inputs on mobile.
