What’s new with the update:
Separated Matching: With the new update, the ranked matching and normal matching are separated. If you drop into ranked matchmaking, the season tier point is reflected as before, and if you play in normal matchmaking, season tier point is not affected. That’s fair, right?
What is Livik: Aftermath?
There’s a new theme making the otherwise bright and beautiful map into some kind of apocalyptic scenario. There’s a volcanic eruption that has resulted in the melting of all the snow. Players will witness dust bowls, hostile terrain, and the likes. Even the buildings have collapsed. Livik: Aftermath can be played only in the normal matching. It does not affect your season tier points.
In this mode, every firearm basically has scopes mounted on them. Recoils of every firearm is largely reduced, so you can easily knock enemies with automatic fire.
Ziplines appear across Livik: Aftermath. Players can use ziplines for fast movement across the map. Also, you can find the Communication Tower in the post-apocalyptic Livik that allows you to revive fallen teammates. You can also deploy a large riot shield for tactical play. Of course, riot shields can be destroyed by gunfire, so keep those extra shields on standby.
