Trivia[]

  • Opiate or opioid painkiller medications work by activating various opioid receptors in the brain, in the spinal cord or in the body. They may produce euphoria, sedation, or feelings of increased strength at low doses. Most painkillers are highly addictive and can cause physical dependence. Some militant groups in the Middle East and Africa have been known to abuse opioids in combat to great effect.[2]
  • In the Alpha and Closed Beta, a completely filled boost bar granted a bonus to weapon accuracy. This was later removed when the game was released for Steam Early Access as it was considered unbalanced.
