R2 was one of the most anticipated titles of the past holiday season. Insomniac delivered on many of the expectations that were had for this game. Today, Bryan has posted on the blog that another patch is forthcoming on Monday. Patch 1.40 will fix a few errors that are ongoing in the  title and bring about a much-requested feature.

Here are some patch 1.40 details:


  • “Salute Me” trophy is not awarded until player reaches level 31 (Lieutenant)
  • “Berserker” trophy can be collected during non-ranked games
  • “Survivor” medal can be collected in cooperative games
  • “Sure Shot” ribbon is awarded if player has accuracy of exactly 50%


  • Added clan support for viewing members, sending invites, and setting up clan tags
  • Default clan region is now USA

Match Balancing

  • Unbalanced ranked games are cancelled in staging before the game is started
  • Parties are prevented from matchmaking into free-for-all Deathmatch games


  • Loadouts can be disabled in the “Create Game” screen in competitive games
  • Balanced the chance of dropping large ammo pickups in competitive games
  • Core Control scoreboard displays “Kills”
  • Improved scoreboard formatting


  • Balanced the amount of XP gained by the Medic class in cooperative games
  • Stalker movement enabled in cooperative games
  • Small ammo pickups don’t give LAARK ammo in cooperative games


  • Splash damage on Pulse Cannon can damage the player firing it
  • Rossmore reticule better reflects its accuracy
  • Fire is easier to shake off
  • Players cannot swap weapons in the middle of a melee attack

That is a mighty long list. There are things missing such as the dual log-in on R2 Co-op, but Bryan says that when the capability to do so is completely worked out, we’ll get it. You can’t help but love Insomniac.
