      • Ammo damage boosts.
      • Critical shot.
      • Extra ammo range.
      • Infinite ammo.
      • Skill boosts.
      • Skill duration boosts.
    • Rumor has it that four new legendary weapons have surfaced. The Brethren Court has learned that these be quite powerful - wielded by some of the most fearsome and notorious individuals in the Caribbean. Will you be one of the first to find them? Only time will tell...
    • Big changes have been made to The Diplomat and China Seas Warrior outfits. These sets now have different clothing items depending on which peddler you visit.
      • China Seas Warrior now has two variations of closed coats, for both males and females.
      • The Diplomat now has an open long coat and high neck shirt variation for males and a closed coat variation for females.
      • The two outfits will return as week-long flash sales throughout August to get players these new items.
    • Kat Repperson, a new peddler, has set up shop in Las Pulgas on Padres del Fuego, next to Goslin Prymme's tavern.
    • New colorable hat: Accented EITC Hat. It is available in the secret shop and in loot (as brights).
    • Rank IV Storm Chaser, Fortune Hunter, and Copperhead hulls now have better speed, cargo, and armor stats respectively. Previously, these hulls had worse stats compared to their rank III counterparts.

    • We've added 75 new prefixes and 75 new suffixes to the ship name chooser!

    • Cannon fixes:
      • Fixed a district reset caused by shooting a cannon after using a voodoo doll.

      • Fixed a bug where enemies would go idle on flagships.
      • Fixed a bug where ramming speed did not damage the targeted ship.

    • Lookout fixes:
      • Fixed a district reset when accepting a Mayhem match as a group from the Lookout panel.
      • Fixed dozens of internal server function crashes with the matchmaker.

    • Made minor tweaks to the stats of a few different weapons.
    • Whitelist and Blacklist updates.
    Game Note
