The QBZ-97 is an effective bullpup 5.56 caliber option for the Insurgent team at an affordable cost, putting rounds out a little faster than an AKM. The QTS-11 is an advanced special operations rifle with an integrated bolt-action grenade launcher, and fires flatter than an AUG A3 with its lower recoil and slower fire rate.

Removal of Competitive
With 1.9.1, we’ve decided to remove Competitive official ranked matchmaking from the Play menu. We understand that this change could be upsetting to our competitive players, but we feel this is what’s best for the game going forward. Competitive matchmaking suffered from extremely low player participation, with players often struggling to even find a match. This is especially a problem for us because it means new players who decide to try a competitive experience on boot up will essentially be stuck, confused, and annoyed. We need to ensure any new player in our community gets quick and easy access to much stronger experiences like those found in Versus, Co-op, or community servers. We want every gameplay experience in Sandstorm to meet a certain standard, and Competitive was not up to that standard.

For the next two weeks our regular limited time playlist will be a modified version of Competitive Firefight. Modifications include normal Versus Firefight classes and normal supply costs for weapons and equipment. Other rules seen previously in Competitive Firefight like faster objective capture, shorter rounds, and 5 v 5 players are still the same.

Game Stats Improvements
We will be revamping the Stats section of the main menu to streamline the way we collect game statistics. New end of round screens have been implemented, and backend logic has been revamped to ensure XP and cosmetic rewards are correctly earned. As a part of this effort, the Weapons section will need to be removed in this update and reimplemented in a future update. Your game stats will still continue to be collected, however the UI to display the information will be missing temporarily. When we reimplement the Weapons and Achievements sections, all stats you have earned since before and after this update will still be seen. These sub menus just need to disappear for a little while as we rework our system, with no actual loss of data. We apologize for any inconvenience or disruption this may cause.

Here are the list of changes:
Replays are now found in Stats > History instead of Replays in the Main Menu
Improved end of round screen by adding match history and statistics at the end of every round

Added night equipment to the Firing Range
