Paladins – Upcoming OB 50 Patch Introduces Nerf Guns, Wrestling Themed Skin For Buck And More

With Paladins,  the free-to-play hero shooter from Hi-Rez Studios set to release a new patch in the upcoming days. The Georgia-based developer has given the community for Paladins a little sneak peak as what’s to come once OB 50 patch goes live on PC.

For starters and probably my favorite addition to the game for this patch is Buck receiving a new collection item that transforms him into a 1980’s style wrestler such as Hulk Hogan. Though probably the best part of the skin is quite possible is the voicepack which features the voice talent of Chris Rager whom is most familiar for voicing both Hercules in Dragon Ball Z and Mr. Torgue in the Borderlands game.

In addition to Buck receiving a new collection item that will be available to purchase directly, both Evie and Sha-lin will be getting new collections added to the game as well. In which you can view them in the links below:

Aside from  new collections being made available, Hi-Rez Studios is also adding Nerf styled cosmetics to the game thanks to the “Get Rekt” chest that will be made available as soon as the patch is released.  Below you’ll find the content of the chest including a “Get Rekt” spray:

  • Androxus REKT Hand Cannon
  • Barik REKT Boom Stick
  • Buck REKT Shotty
  • Cassie REKT Impaler
  • Grover REKT Hacker
  • Kinessa REKT Long Gun
  • Sha Lin REKT Great Bow
  • Tyra REKT Carbine
  • Viktor REKT War Rifle

Unfortunately, those expecting a new character to be released with this patch are going to be a bit disappointed. As the OB 50 is mainly focused on addressing old issues with the game like Fernando receiving damage while having his shield deployed and walking backwards.

For the full details on what’s been addressed with the patch, feel free to read the patch notes below:
