Change Log

Patch 3.0.0

  • Buff: adjusted the regression penalty to 25 % across all Tiers.
  • Buff: increased the window of opportunity to damage a Generator to 40/50/60 seconds.

Patch 4.3.0

  • Nerf: reduced the window of opportunity to damage a Generator to 35/40/45 seconds.

Patch 6.1.0

  • Nerf: reduced the Progression penalty to -20 % of the Generators current Progression, rather than of the total Progression as it did previously.
    • This change was motivated by changing the Damage Generator action to now immediately regress a Generator by -2.5 % of the total Progression and to make Pop Goes the Weasel less effective against Generators with little Progression.


Trivia

  • Pop Goes the Weasel's Penalty is calculated based on the amount of Charges the Generator has left after the initial -2.5 % damaging a Generator deducts by default.
