New Customizations Available: Blast into Orbit

The Facility Update is all about adding choices to the game. In addition to a gorgeous new map that's been added to the rotation, pilots have six more camouflage paint jobs to choose from, a new cool thruster, and a must-have repair drone. Plus, holo-taunts just got bigger and better.

New Camouflages

If you're keeping count, this new batch of camouflage paint jobs brings our total to 26 currently available in HAWKEN! This latest sextet offers pilots more options for stealthily blending into their surroundings as they clomp around in their house-sized mechs. Choose from: Ash-GRY, Badlands-BRN, Fatigue-GRN, Granite-PCH, Survival-GRN, or Tide-BLU.




New Body Shop Options

If you prefer something flashier than camouflage, check out the new thruster and repair drone you can unlock to add to your favorite mech.
  • JT-BOWSHOCK adds twin barreled thrusters packed with four jets that emit tight, blue flames surrounded by a crimson halo.
  • RD-0RB1T produces a trio of spherical satellites that break apart and orbit your mech, repairing damage with photon emitters.


Holo-Taunt Improvements

You may notice after this update that your holo-taunts are bigger and last longer than they used to. We won't tell you how we embiggened all the holo-taunts, but we assure you it was a perfectly cromulent process. Enjoy your larger and longer-lasting holo-taunts. We're sure your enemies will appreciate the size difference.

Check out these new customization options in your Garage today. Mix and match camos, thrusters, drones, and taunts to make your mech stand out on the battlefield!

It's cruel how you make every new repair drone cooler than the previous one ;_;
I'm loving these breakaway drones B)
I am loving the new exhaust... on 3 of my mechs.. ugh.. i am lame but loving it.
Will we ever see thrusters with green flames?
Looks very nice. Do you have to buy repair drones per mech?
Absolutely love the GRANITE-PCH Camo! My BOOT chasis Technician looks fabulous with it's new look.

Feels weird being the only person who doesn't like the new thrusters or drones.

Also when are we going to get more inspired camos? Something that doesn't imitate any real world patters (unless its Rhodesian camo) and is just around for the sake of looking cool

Wonderful.

Now, can you tell us when you'll be fixing hit-detection so that my shots/first salvo of shots don't just pass clean through other players, or mechs in turret mode?

How about de-nerfing the Detonator so that it actually does as much damage as it looks like it should ( how large is the explosion radius artwork, and compare that to how little damage is caused due to the feathering affect patch )? I shot an enemy mech down to 2 bars of health before he hid behind a low brown/orange wall by the eu station on Frontline, so I fired off my Detonator and exploded it right above his head ( literally a few inches, skimming the top of the wall ); no damage caused at all, didn't even register as a hit on my crosshairs.

Pathetic how much effort is put into making the game look pretty when basic issues are left unaddressed and broken, and game play made worse by weakening every weapon to the point I might as well be firing a bb gun at a mech.

meme time!!

Looks like somebody didn't read the patch notes.

theres apparently some nvidia-logo'd stuff floating around, 2 camos and a jet with green exhaust. guess you can only get it if you buy a geforce 6xx gpu and redeem the $50 bundle code. could be wrong.

The new drones are there for science.... you monster.
Please devs make some flat camos for our mechs...i'm not a huge fan of multicolor camos.
I think having the option to color our mechs with just one monochrome camo would be great.

TOW Missile and Detonator projectiles will no longer pass through Type-C mechs in turret mode.

I said shots (of all types) pass clean through mechs in turret mode- that doesn't alter the fact that half the weapons in the game don't do anywhere near enough damage to be worth using anymore- I let of Detonators at point blank range and they do practically no damage, yet the explosion cloud is large enough to totally engulf them. Either the blast radius needs to be as large as the graphic effect suggests it is, or the graphic effect needs to be shrunken down to the size of the actual blast radius.

The trouble the devs are having is that there are lots of cry babies who moan about dying too easily & quickly due to their lack of skill and experience, so the devs decide to keep on nerfing all the powerful weapons in order to try and make things fairer ( epic facepalm ). What's the point of having ~13 mechs if all their weapons are the same strength, or overheat so quickly that they are practically useless in an intense fight?

STOP NERFING EVERYTHING!
