The Big Patch™ hits servers one day before the free to play launch of Battlerite Royale, on February 18th at 9:00 AM CET. Downtime is scheduled to last up to 2 hours. Both Battlerite and Battlerite Royale will be offline during this time.
There are lots of large changes coming to Battlerite Royale with this patch. You can read up on the thought process behind these changes in our Dev Update.
Battle Season 1
Unlock unique rewards every Battle Season with the new Battle Pass feature! Battle Pass progress is shared between Battlerite and Battlerite Royale, giving players the freedom to progress their Pass however they choose.
With the introduction of the Battle Pass come the Battle Seasons, starting with Battle Season 1. We’re restarting the season counter to make it clear when the Battle Pass and its related changes was introduced and that the Season is shared between both games.
The Battle Pass
Progress your Battle Pass by leveling your Tier level, with each Tier level having new rewards to potentially unlock. Advancing to the next Tier level requires 10 Battle Stars, which can be earned by leveling up your Season Level, completing Daily Quests, or completing Season Quests.
The Free Pass
Everyone has access to the Free Battle Pass, which gives rewards at Tier levels 2, 5, 7, 11, 13, 16, 19, 23, 27, 31, and 36. These rewards include:
- 6x Silver Chests
- 2x Avatars
- 2x Rare Weapons
- 1x Rare Poses
The Premium Pass
Upgrade your Battle Pass to the Premium Pass to unlock rewards at every Tier level. Pre-purchase the Premium Pass here or purchase it in-game for 950 Diamonds.
Players also have the option to upgrade to the Premium Pass and purchase an additional 15 Tiers for 2500 Diamonds in game (unless already pre-purchased).
Premium Pass owners can unlock all the Free Pass rewards, as well as potentially:
- 1x Legendary Mount
- 2x Legendary Outfits
- 2x Legendary Weapons
- 1x Epic Mount
- 9x Epic Pets, including variations (27 total)
- 2x Epic Poses
- 2x Epic Emotes, including variations (4 total)
- 3x Epic Weapons
- 1x Rare Mount
- 6x 100 Gems or Diamonds (players can choose which currency)
- 5x 10% Season XP Boosts (Season XP Boosts stack additively)
- 8x Avatars
- 1x Legendary Chest
- 2x Dragon Chests
- 1x Arctic Chest
- 1x Creepy Chest
- 1x Ancient Chest
- 1x Gold Chest
Players who upgrade to the Premium Pass can purchase Tiers directly for:
- 1 Tier for 150 Diamonds
- 5 Tiers + 1 Extra for 750 Diamonds
- 10 Tiers + 4 Extra for 1,500 Diamonds
Tiers purchased after the max Tier of 50 will be converted into Season XP. All Battle Star progress is kept and applied to your new Tier level.
The Season Level is a new type of Account Level that resets every Season. Gain 2 Battle Stars every time you level up, and 5 Battle Stars every 5th level. Once a player has reached a max Tier level of 50, any Battle Stars earned will be converted into Season XP, which increases a player’s Season Level. Season Level history will be shown in the profile from Battle Season 2 onward.
Account Levels are still around! Account Levels now represent your total accumulated level from previous and current Seasons in both Battlerite and Battlerite Royale. No legacy Account Levels have been lost. Account Level is displayed in the profile, above your current Season Level, and in the Friends List.N
New Season Quests
Every Battle Season now brings new quests that unlock each week for ten weeks! Season Quests are not shared between Battlerite and Battlerite Royale and can only be progressed in their respective game client. However, both will contribute to the same Battle Pass progress. Season quests can only be progressed in Casual and League. There are Free and Premium Quests – Free Quests can be progressed by all players, but Premium Quests require upgrading the Battle Pass to progress. Season quests can only be progressed in the ranked or unranked Battlerite Royale queue. In Battlerite Royale there are:
- 2 Free Quests per week
- 1 Premium Quest per week
- Total of 30 Quests per Season
- 4 Battle Stars rewarded per completed Free Quest
- 8 Battle Stars rewarded per completed Premium Quest
Daily Quests have been reworked and are now shared between Battlerite and Battlerite Royale. Each completed Daily Quest rewards 150 Battle Coins and 3 Battle Stars. Daily Quests can be progressed in Vs AI in addition to the Unranked and Ranked Battlerite Royale queue. Don’t forget that Daily Quests still progress signed Sponsors!
Additionally, some old Daily Quests have been removed and new ones added. The new Daily Quest pool consists of the following quests:
- Play 6 Matches
- Play 4 Matches as a Ranged Champion
- Play 4 Matches as a Melee Champion
- Strike a Killing Blow in 2 different matches
- Deal 5000 Damage
- Heal or Absorb 2000 Damage
- Deal 300 Damage with Ultimate Abilities
- Play a Match in a Party
- Collect 1000 Season XP
- Gather 2000 energy
- Hit 5 projectiles in a row in 4 matches
- Hit 5 melee attacks in a row in 4 matches
Sponsors are still around with the introduction of the Battle Pass, and can still be progressed by completing Daily Quests. They are now shared between Battlerite and Battlerite Royale.
Champions that are rewarded through sponsors are now unlocked in both Battlerite and Battlerite Royale, though Champions no longer provide token compensation when the Champion is already owned.
There are five sponsors for Battle Season 1. Three Sponsors return from previous seasons and two new Sponsors join them. The Stewards of the Arena are available for all players to progress and will unlock Raigon and a unique Raigon weapon and outfit. The Halls of Triumph sponsor is only available for players who have upgraded to the Premium Battle Pass and contains a unique pose, outfit, and weapon for Jumong.
If you are still signed with a sponsor from Season 5 you will still be able to complete it. All sponsors from previous seasons will be marked with a star.
Due to the change to Season Levels and introduction of the Battle Pass, Boosts have much more value than previously. For this reason, Boosts now grant a 50% Season XP bonus instead of 100% Account Level XP bonus. Boosts will still grant 100% Champion XP and double the Battle Coins earned from matches as previously. You can purchase XP Boosts in your profile.
10% Season XP Boosts can be earned by progressing through the Premium Battle Pass and stack additively.

- 4th Consumable slot is now properly locked during Lobby phase
- Inventory now locked when skydiving – items can no longer be dropped while diving

An anti-teaming countermeasure has been added into the game. Don’t do it anymore.
We’ve added a quick way to allow you to see the content of your ally’s inventory using the same key to bring up your map (Default binds Tab / M). This new feature allows you to see the Abilities, Consumables, Equipment, and Gold that your ally has and the respective rarity levels of all those items.
Equipment and Consumables
- New Rare Consumable – Butcher’s Hook
- Have no fear when an enemy runs away, you can just ask them kindly to “get over here!”
- Sheep Medallion
- Now has VFX when equipped
Several locations on Talon Island have received reworks or updates.
Since Anvilfall is such a big, central part of the map, it’s important that the area is appealing and fun to be in. We’ve moved around some things, and it’s now a bit more asymmetrical than before. The mansion has been moved onto the western hill and now only has a single escape route, but also contains much more loot. Most of the houses have been expanded so that there’s more room to fight within them, and they’ve been rearranged so that, in the outdoors, there are some aspects similar to Arenas in Battlerite.
Oakenheim has mostly followed suit from the Anvilfall reworks while also addressing issues with the awkward movement through the village. The village now has a more defined center and a slightly different architectural style that further differentiates it from Anvilfall.
Abandoned Mines and Greyheart Pass
These areas had such a similar feel to each other that we decided to remove Grayheart Pass and expand the Abandoned Mines, making one larger mining town. It’s now much more narrow with winding corridors, giving it a different feel than either Grayheart Pass or old Abandoned Mines had.
The Crumbling Keep
The Crumbling Keep has been too imbalanced when it comes to the value of jumping over walls. A couple of long walls have been broken up to allow for faster movement by running. The loot distribution has been updated, with loot now more evenly spread out. Players now have a higher chance to find higher quality loot in the main chamber.
The central chamber of temple ruins has been exanded a bit and now yields slightly better loot.
New Area – the Frozen Plateau
Located between Smuggler’s Rock and the Abandoned mines in the cold northwest lies the icy Frozen Plateau. It’s an area covered in ice and snow, where plenty of loot lies waiting for adventurers brave enough to defy the harsh climate. Its frozen lake, icicles, and snow mounds where some winter items may be found makes battle and looting a fun, unique experience! Do not forget your mittens!
New Area – Trader’s Isle
Traders Isle is the main hub for commerce and trading on Talon Island. Located southeast of Oakenheim, it was known for its flourishing marketplace and giant warehouse containing tons of valuable trade goods from all over the world. Local merchants would travel here to sell their goods and hopefully not get in trouble with the many guards, trade moguls, and ruffians that kept a close eye on the dynamics of the trade. Champions dropping here will most likely get rich or die trying!
New Map Objects
New interactable map objects have been scattered across Talon Island. Among them are:
- Dynamite Crates – Keep your Ashkas far away
- Target Dummies – For all your training montage needs
- Fresh Fish – They’re probably good for you
- Mushrooms – They’re probably good for you too
- Cursed Urns – They’re probably not that good for you
And more! You’ll have to explore Talon Island to find them all!

He can setup Bear Traps around where he suspects his enemies will wander. With a revamped Seeker’s Mark, Jumong is able to temporarily track his quarry even when they escape his sight.
