The Cycle: Frontier Update 2.2 Patch Notes Revealed

The Cycle Frontier gets a new update, patching plenty of issues that have been brought thanks to player feedback. Most of the weapons in the game are getting extra tweaks, such as increased damage, so hopefully, it combats the spongy feeling when shooting an enemy. Update 2.2 falls in favor of the players, and you can check why exactly below.

Furthermore, this update addresses the faction missions, which, thanks to this update, got adjusted to feel less grindy. Judging by this, they should not require as many items as before, which will lead to faster completion. Therefore I’d suggest you check out your current progress on some of the quests once you get in the game.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
