Our biggest-ever RAD Soldiers Balancing Update is now live - full list of changes inside!

Commanders, the latest RAD Soldiers update is now available for download in the App Store, and brings with it the latest amount of balance changes we've ever made. In a nutshell, we're boosting weapon and ability damage across the board to increase the general pace of the game; look for a full break-down of all our tweaks later in this post.

Going hand-in-hand with the balance changes, we've also tweaked the London and Rio challenge packs, and they'll now offer a more consistent difficulty curve. Speaking of challenges, we've also improved their tally screens to how display your score, so you can immediatey see how well you did compared to previous attempts. Really great for anyone looking to move up the friends leaderboard.

We've also fixed a whole bunch of bugs, including Detecto-Sweep inadvertently revealing your own deployables to the enemy and Engineers being unable to disarm enemy mines that have enemy Soldiers standing on them.

Right, on to the bit you've all been waiting for - here's the full list of balance changes:
