    Core Hammerburst Changes

    Last week, we announced that the Hammerburst would be removed as a loadout weapon beginning with this Update. This change is being made to preserve its impactful role as a potent long-range rifle but removing the issue with its over-effectiveness when used by a team of players.

    The Hammerburst will now be available as a secondary weapon pickup in Core, much like the Markza, Boltok, Overkill and Retro. Here’s the full list of the maps that will now include Hammerburst pickups along with any weapons they rotate with per round (ordered from first to second).

    Avalanche – Boltok / Hammerburst
    Blood Drive – Boltok / Hammerburst
    Clocktower – Hammerburst replaces Smoke Grenade spawn up top
    Diner – Shock Grenade / Hammerburst
    Dry Dock – Hammerburst / Boltok
    Glory – Shock Grenade / Hammerburst
    Gridlock – Hammerburst / Boltok
    Harbor – Hammerburst / Boltok
    Hotel – Boltok / Hammerburst
    Impact Dark – Boltok / Hammerburst
    Lift – Hammerburst / Overkill
    Mercy – Boltok / Hammerburst
    Old Town – Hammerburst / Boltok
    Relic – Markza / Hammerburst

    MuzzilyTip for people looking to grind this out. You can only get this once per match, but that doesn't stop you leaving and rejoining to count it as another match. Best game mode is obviously king of the hill. You can quit as soon as the tracker counts towards the achievement, then when you rejoin you're free to get another 10 assists / kills. I resorted to this as it seemed to be so infrequent that I'd get a map with a hammerburst.

    StrongProtectorFor those who see this in time, the Stay Frosty event is going on in-game until October 22nd. In that mode, the Hammerburst becomes your starting weapon (along with frag grenades and the golden boltok). I was able to do this achievement easily in that mode and it counted towards the achievement.

    To speed up the achievement progress a bit, I recommend the following:
    -Play with a partner or more "if you can put extra controls better, to fill the equipment"; in the King of the Hill game mode against Bots (preferable in the lowest difficulty).

    -Now the ANFITRION for nothing in the world must LEAVE THE GAME while the other players act killing bots or whatever the achievement requires to increase their progress. Once the progress has increased, LEAVE THE GAME and have the host invite you again to return to the game (repeat this process each time you increase your achievement progress).

    -I recommend doing it at night because there are usually few people and be agile since sometimes a different player can join.

    A disadvantage is for the host because he has to stay in the game but between the members he can alternate the host.

    ¡REPEAT! is to accelerate a bit the progress of the achievement without having to finish the game and start a new one, I hope it helps. Good lucktoast

    Jacky chaudYeah thanks! It's obvious when you read the achievement description. For some weird reason I coudn't see it. And for ANFITRION for nothing in the world shock laugh what did you mean?

    Kyk3 StylesNo problem, it usually happens.
    For ANFITRION, I mean that it is necessary to play with a friend and the one that invites the others "FOR NOTHING SHOULD LEAVE THE GAME" so that the other players can leave and return to the same game as many times as necessary.
    Note: An apology for my English, I do my best. Greetings and successtoast
