  5. Arcadegeddon Patch 1.2.0


    A Letter From The Development Team 

    We hope everyone is excited for the 1.2.0 Update! 

    The team worked hard to bring these updates and changes, and there is A LOT. We wanted the game to feel more challenging and engaging overall for players, so we overhauled multiple systems and added tons of quality of life changes, along with a slew of new content.

    The first big change to the game is Balance. Enemies now scale health and damage along with the stage and difficulty. We also overhauled the enemy Affix system which allows enemies to spawn with modifiers such as shields or elemental damage/resistances. Updating enemy scaling also means we had to rebalance all of the weapons in game. In addition to the damage tweaks and updates for all weapons, we also reworked the feel and viability. Shotguns, Pistols, and SMG’s are all now tuned to be much more viable at close to medium range and not as effective at longer distances. Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles are now primarily effective at medium to long ranges.

    To go along with all of the new enemy scaling we have also added multiple new systems to help the player scale their own power to help combat the increased run difficulty. New plugins and hacks have both been added to give players more agency over their play style, as well as the Hack Terminal which will let players craft builds with the loot they find during runs. Vendor tiles have also been updated with new interactions and more loot. Vendors now spawn 2 hacks to choose from, and a Weapon Kiosk was added that lets you upgrade one weapon in your inventory, for a cost. 

    Outside of the Adventure run, we have also added 2 new game modes: Horde Mode and Boss Rush. Horde Mode pits players against endless waves of enemies and challenges on some brand new maps. Boss Rush is a never ending sequence of boss arena fights. How many can you survive? The leaderboards have also been upgraded with new stats and contain dedicated boards for these new modes.

    This is just barely scratching the surface of all of the new stuff we crammed into Arcadegeddon with this absolutely massive update!. Two of our personal favorites are the new Ready Up system in Gilly's and the 4 new emote slots on the emote wheel. 

    We can’t wait for everyone to dive into this update and discover all of the new changes and content, and we look forward to hearing the reactions from the community!

    Arcadegeddon Dev Team xoxo

    New Game Modes

    Boss Rush.jpeg

    Boss Rush
    Boss Rush is the mode to play if you like to fight bosses and only bosses. All the excitement of boss fights without having to run through hordes of enemies. 
    Quite the opposite of Horde Mode now that I think about it…

    The Boss Rush game mode allows the player to exclusively play through boss battles. Players using Unique Weapons during Boss Rush will gain EXP for the weapon and allow it to be unlocked as a starter weapon.

    Boss Rush can be unlocked by acquiring 5 collectibles.

    Horde Mode
    Have you ever wanted to defend against hordes of Arcadegeddon enemies without having to run a marathon across an entire biome?
    Here is your chance to do just that with Horde Mode!
    Horde Mode is a new game mode where the player must survive waves of enemies and challenges on the new Horde Mode maps. Players may obtain the new unique collectibles by surviving 40 waves of enemies. 

    Horde Mode can be unlocked by completing the first 3 primary gang challenges.
    Players may also enter Horde Mode by using the brand new Horde Mode Altar that may appear throughout Adventure Mode.

    Infinite Enemy Scaling and Balance Changes
    Arcadegeddon has had a major overhaul!

    We’ve made many big changes to the balance of Arcadegeddon. In order for the difficulty of Arcadegeddon to scale infinitely with difficulty and stage progression, we’ve basically rebalanced everything! Enemy scaling, weapons, hacks, loot drops, enemy spawn rates, and more have all been through some major adjustments and tuning. There are also a variety of new systems (listed below) introduced to Arcadegeddon that will completely change how you play the game! 
    Enemy Affixes

    Elemental Variants 
    Enemies are now able to spawn as one of their 4 new elemental variants. These elemental affixes include: Fire, Ice, Shock, and Acid. 
    Elemental enemy variants will be equipped with an elemental type weapon and have varying resistance to player weapon types depending on the element.

    Enemies are now able to spawn affixed with Shields
    Enemy shields behave the same as player shields and will recharge after a time.

    Enemies are now able to spawn affixed with Armor
    Armor receives 50% reduction to all damage except acid. Armor does not recharge.

    Enemies are now able to spawn affixed with the Berserker
    Berserker causes enemies to deal double damage while also receiving double damage. 
    Berserker also increases their speed and makes them appear angry and red.


    New Acid Weapon Manufacturer
    New Acid Weapon Manufacturer
    We’ve got a whole new weapon manufacturer named ACIDBURN

    AcidBurn weapons inflict Acid DOT(damage over time) damage to enemies. 
    Enemies afflicted by the Acid damage will cause pools of acid to drip onto the ground and spread Acid throughout their surroundings

    Acid damage deals an increased amount of damage to Armor.

    New Weapons
    Including the new Acid Burn weapons, there are a total of 9 new weapons available in Arcadegeddon!

    • Perforator
    • Boomstick
    • Bouncing Benny

    Weapon Upgrade Machine
    Players are now able to pay to upgrade their weapon’s quality level at the new Weapon Upgrade Machine located on each vendor tile.

    • Bullet Town
    • Angelic
    • Second Surge
    • Resistor
    • Harden

    • Shopping for Shields
    • Last Chance

    Hack Terminal
    Players are now able to sell or upgrade their hacks at the new Hack Terminal located on each vendor tile.

    By sacrificing two hacks, you are now able to upgrade a hack of your choosing and really push your build to its limits (which you’re really going to need with these new infinite scaling changes). You can also choose to sell your hacks in order to get that extra amount of money you need for that weapon you’ve been eyeing at the vendor tile.

    Mini Bosses
    Certain enemies throughout Adventure Mode are now able to spawn in as mini bosses. 
    These enemies are much tougher than their normal counterparts and should not be underestimated. Mini bosses are equipped with special weapons and WAY more health. 

    New End Tiles
    With this big update to Arcadegeddon, you can expect a new available end tile on each of Arcadegeddon’s existing biomes.
    That’s 6 new end tiles that you may run into while fighting your way through Adventure Mode! Make sure to slow down a bit to enjoy the awesome scenery.

  6. AcidBurn Preview

    2022 has been quite an exciting year for Arcadegeddon. In July, we were very happy to fully launch Arcadegeddon after a full year of Early Access. Patch 1.0 (Full Launch) was quite a big overhaul for Arcadegeddon and there were so many changes and new features that it felt like a completely new game!  Since then, we’ve released multiple updates with new features, bug fixes, stability improvements, and various cosmetics. 

    However, we know that many of you are curious to know what’s coming up for Arcadegeddon and we hear you. 

    So, let’s get right into it and talk about the new weapon type!


    There have been various new weapons released in Arcadegeddon over the past two years, but this is the very first time that we will be introducing a completely new weapon type and weapon manufacturer.

    AcidBurn is the most recent weapon manufacturer that has arrived at Super City and they’ve brought with them four new weapons. Their motto is “slow and steady wins the race,” but they’ve twisted that age old saying into something quite a bit more insidious. AcidBurn’s specialty is, like their name suggests, Acid Weapons. These weapons are designed to whittle away at your foes with a concoction of deadly poisons that would scare away even the toughest Data Daemon Brutes. The legality of these weapons may be questionable, but I’m sure Uncle Gilly won’t mind… Right?

    These new AcidBurn weapons come with a new unique status effect called Acid. Acid afflicts your enemies with a stacking damage over time that increases its damage with each individual stack. When an enemy reaches the maximum amount of Acid stacks, the Acid stacks explode, dealing AOE damage to all nearby enemies while also creating an acid pool on the ground. These acid pools will also cause your enemies to be afflicted with Acid, which makes the AcidBurn weapons very powerful in situations against large amounts of enemies.

    Acid Weapons are still a work in progress and may be subject to change

    There are four new Acid Weapons being introduced to Arcadegeddon. 
    The Slosher, Toxic Revenger, Bile Blaster, and Corruptor.

    The Slosher(Grenade Launcher) and Toxic Revenger(Rocket Launcher) are explosive weapons that deal AOE damage on impact while also creating a deadly pool of acid that will poison your foes foolish enough to walk into a big green puddle.

    The Corruptor is a semi-automatic pistol with moderate amounts of damage that will quickly stack up acid on your enemies.

    The Bile Blaster is a shotgun. An acid shotgun. What more can I say?


    These new Acid weapons are super exciting and we’re very happy that we’re finally able to show this new weapon type to you all. However, this isn’t the only thing on the horizon. We’ve got much more we’re working on that we’ll be talking about in the coming months. 

    Here are a few things that are being worked on in Arcadegeddon that you can look forward to in 2023.
    Keep in mind that we’re working on more than what’s listed here!

    • Difficulty scaling changes (Infinite Scaling)
    • New game mode(s)
    • New maps
    • New hacks and hack related features
    • Even more new weapons
    • And a lot more!

    So… What do you think of the new Acid weapons? Will you be using them in your Arcadegeddon runs when they’re released? 

    Let us know what you think on the Official Arcadegeddon Discord Server and on our social media!

    Make sure to also keep an eye out for our live streams where we often talk about what’s coming next for Arcadegeddon (such as the content listed above) and the current state of the game. We stream once a week and usually have giveaways too! For the most current streaming schedule, check out our twitch page at https://twitch.tv/IllFonic

    Hope to see you all soon and we wish you all a Happy Holidays!

  7. 1.04 Patch Notes (T).png

    It’s already the last month of 2022 and we’re planning to end this year with some holiday cheer!

    Gilly'sEntrance 1080.jpg

    Gilly has been busy this past month running around the Arcade to put up some fancy Holiday decorations!
    Though if you take a look around the Arcade, you may notice that he may have been too busy to shovel the snow….


    Gilly also has a variety of new winter themed cosmetics and weapons tints available in his shop and in the customization machine. Make sure to hop into the Arcade and start collecting some tickets soon because these cosmetics and weapon tints will only be available for purchase until January. Grab them while you can! 
    However, there’s no need to worry about your winter themed cosmetics and weapon tints becoming unavailable after purchasing them. You’ll keep what you buy even after they become unpurchaseable.

  10. 1.01.1 Patch Notes Forums.png


    • Fixed an issue where, under certain conditions, the boss would not spawn into the arena
      • If you encounter this issue or any issue similar to it, please let us know on the Arcadegeddon Discord. The team has worked hard this week to fix this issue, but it’s possible that there are still some edge cases that cause this issue. 
    • Fixed an issue where players would sometimes not receive their ARCoins when purchasing them from Gilly
    • Implemented Xbox Series X account linking to EOS
    • Various crash fixes and stability improvements to Adventure Mode and PVP
    • Fixed an issue where players may sometimes not enter into Adventure Mode with the rest of their party
  11. ar_patchnotes 1.01 forum blue.png

    This hotfix is to address various crash fixes and to improve the situation in which bosses would sometimes not spawn.

    We implemented a fix that should alleviate the issue where the boss would sometimes not spawn when entering the boss arena. While this isn’t a perfect fix, players should encounter the issue less often (ideally never). We understand that encountering this issue is extremely frustrating and we thank you for your patience. The team has identified the problem and we are actively working to have this issue fixed as soon as possible. 

    We’ve gone through the top most reported crashes that players have encountered since patch 1.0 and we have implemented fixes for those crashes. This should vastly reduce the amount of crashes that players are experiencing and we will continue to monitor the situation. 

    It’s super helpful for the team when you are able to take the time and submit a crash report after experiencing a crash. These crash reports help us identify the issue and work on implementing a fix as quickly as possible.

    Because we wanted to get these fixes out to you all as soon as possible, it means that this patch will take some time to roll out onto every platform. This also means that players playing on a platform that has not received the patch yet, will be temporarily unable to connect to players on other platforms until they are also updated to Patch 1.01.

    Thank you all for your patience and support! There are more changes and fixes on the way and this is just the first of many. Your feedback and bug reports on the Arcadegeddon Discord have been immensely helpful and we very are excited to see the community grow!

    Arcadegeddon is now live on:

    • Epic Games Store

    • PS4 and PS5

    • Xbox Series X/S

    With this patch, we've introduced a whole lot of new changes. New VFX and SFX, new animations, performance improvements and bug fixes, and a whole lot of new content! We may not have listed everything in these patch notes, but rest assured, the world of Arcadegeddon has had some major changes!

    Keep reading for more info!




    New Content

    New Biome: Hellscape

    “Dive into the depths of Hellscape, the unknown origin of the corruption infecting all of Arcadegeddon. A fiery landscape sprawling with gothic structures, Data Daemons and FFC Troops, Hellscape is plagued by the mysterious virus slowly eating its way into every corner of the source code of Gilly’s machine.”


    New Surge Gauntlet Abilities:


    “Channel your inner monster and bulk up with the help of Flexy and Lexy. The wrestling legends can show you a thing or two about the luchador lifestyle. If brawling and bashing is your style then give the Pluggernaut a shot!”

    Major TomBot


    “Did somebody call for assistance? Major TomBot is on duty and rollin’ out much more than just flashy skins and epic emotes! From vendor to veteran, Major TomBot is here to join you on the battlefield!”



    Power Tokens 

    Arcade Tokens.png


    Introducing Power Tokens! Plugins and Surge Gauntlet abilities are now unlocked using these new Power Tokens.
    Obtain Power Tokens by leveling up and completing challenges from the various Gang Leaders hanging out at Gilly’s.

    Want to change up your load out, but you've already spent all your Power Tokens?
    No problem! You can reset your Power Tokens in the customization machine.


    Reset Power Token.png

    Plugin Tiers

    We've made some big changes to how Plugins work! 
    Plugins now have three available tiers that you can unlock. Every additional tier will increase the effectiveness of the Plugin. 

    Unlocking and Upgrading Plugins now costs Power Tokens, but unlocking Plugins still requires that you meet the level requirements

    New Plugin: Shield Discharger

    • Cause a small explosion that deals #/#/# damage when shield breaks

    Shield Discharger.png

    New Plugin: Massive

    • Cause a small explosion that deals #/#/# damage when landing from a jump or falling.


    Starter Weapon Rework

    Previously, Starter Weapons were unlocked and upgraded by killing a specific amount of enemies with that weapon.
    We wanted to refine the idea of having a progression system tied to the Starter Weapons and balance out the progression between different weapons.

    Starter Weapons are now leveled up by gaining weapon EXP instead of landing the killing blow on enemies. Weapon EXP can be earned by damaging enemies with your weapons. This includes dealing damage via elemental effects such as setting an enemy on fire with an Infernal weapon or the chain lightning effect from Surge weapons. Weapon EXP also scales with difficulty level. The higher the difficulty, the more EXP you will earn!

    We’ve also introduced some QOL changes for Starter Weapons. Your current progression towards the next level for your Starter Weapon is now shown in-game on your weapon card while you are playing through Adventure Mode. Players no longer have to return to Gilly's to check their weapon progress every single time and can continue grinding with no worries!

    The UI for the weapons menu in the customization machine has also had some changes. Starter Weapons have been moved into it's own category and is no longer tied to the weapon customization and info tab.



    The Good Doctor2.pngParty Favor.png

    “Support for our supports!”

    The Good Doctor and Party Favor are now available as Starter Weapons.
    We wanted players to be able to provide more of a support role without having to go through multiple stages before they could play in their own style. The Good Doctor and Party Favor can be leveled up just like every other Starter Weapon and the weapon EXP can be gained by supporting your teammates!

    We've also made a big change to the Party Favor. 
    The Party Favor now deals damage to enemies.


    We’ve introduced two new Gangs with this patch.

    These new gang leaders have brought with them new missions to complete and outfits to unlock. 

    New Gang: PIN


    Leaders: Flexy & Lexy

    Strength and power! Titans of top rope Flexy & Lexy are the UNDEFEATED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF SUPER CITY – and don’t you forget it! These high-flying wrestlers run PIN, a stable of fighters in the ring, and the arcade. One time jobbers for Super City Wrestling, Flexy and Lexy turned heel, creating their own off-shoot organization within. Recently they discovered that their character rating in the Super City Wrestling (SCW) video game was only a measly 99 OUT OF 100. This is unacceptable! So they’ve decided to take their frustrations out on the gaming world, starting with Gilly’s.


    New Gang: H@X


    Leader: Wh1z

    A kid genius – and kind of a smartass – Wh1z is the leader of H@X and the esteemed president of his high school robotics club (of which he’s also the only member). Wh1z’s massive fandom for Gilly’s sidekick, TomBot, has drawn him to Gilly’s where he hopes to share his own homebrew tech inventions with his robo-hero.  



    New Premium Cosmetics - ARCoins

    Introducing five new Premium cosmetics that can be unlocked with the new currency ARCoins.
    These new premium outfits include various pieces with amazing visual effects that will dazzle both your enemies and your friends!

    Small, Medium, and Large packs of AR Coins are available for purchase today to unlock various cosmetics in Gilly's Arcade. Get your ARCoins and unlock your style today! ARCoins are consumable and players can purchase multiple packs at a time.



    Gilly’s Arcade

    Customization Overhaul

    Previously players could only customize around four different categories: Items, Head, Hair, and Body. Even with these limitations, you folks on the Arcadegeddon Discord have never ceased to amaze us with your awesome outfits. We've made some big changes to customization and we can’t wait to see what you do with even more options!

    Get ready to take your drip to a whole new level.

    We’ve broken down outfits and accessories into individual components! You can still rock entire outfits but now you can mix and match your fits to create a fit that fits you. 

    Clothing has been broken down into three categories: Torso, Legs, and Gauntlet.

    We’ve also split up “Items,” into multiple categories of accessories which includes: Facial Hair, Hats, Masks, Glasses, and Ear Wear.

    You can now also purchase cosmetics directly from the customization machine. However, you are only able to purchase cosmetics of a lower rarity in the customization machine and you will still have to check in with Gilly to see what he's got in stock if you want to purchase some of the rarer cosmetics.

    We've also got a whole lot of new cosmetics that can be unlocked!


    Customization menu draft 5.png

    “New Patch, New You”



    The customization overhaul doesn’t stop there! 
    Introducing stickers! Individualize certain tops with dope decals of all shapes, sizes and designs.



    We Gotta Fix Gilly’s!

    Thanks to the FFC, Gilly’s entire arcade is a mess! 
    It’s up to you and your squad to bring new life to this storied hangout.

    As you level up by playing Arcadegeddon you’ll also be helping Gilly fix up the place and build the Arcade that he’s always dreamed of.

    Gilly's progression 1280.png



    We introduced a cute CEO friend with the release of the Winter Update and now we're releasing the rest of them!

    There are now 50 new collectibles that you can unlock to liven up Gilly’s Arcade.
    Each collectible is unique and can be obtained by completing a full boss run (completing all the available bosses in a single playthrough).

    Collect all 51 collectibles and show it off to all your friends that join your lobby!

    Collectibles draft 1.png

    Tutorial Changes

    With all the changes and new content added into Arcadegeddon since the release of Early Access, we’ve decided to also make some tweaks to the tutorial. There are some additional explanations from Gilly and a new section in the tutorial specifically for the Customization Machine. 

    If you still need some tips and tricks that the tutorial didn't help you with, then join our Discord or ask it about it here on the Forum!




    Adventure Mode


    Boss Phases

    Boss Ready Fill.png

    “Wait.. what do you mean there’s another phase?”

    We introduced the second phase to each boss in a recent patch and now we're improving that system.
    Each boss now has some big changes when they hit their second phase. Whether it's an increase in damage or the abilities that they gain, you will have to watch out. The Mech Boss has also had some changes to her arena. Electricity now surges throughout the arena when she enters phase two!

    • The first boss you encounter in your boss runs will never have a second phase.
    • Boss health bars have been changed to make it easier to tell when you're entering the next phase
    • Bosses now have a special animation when entering phase two
    • Adjusted health for all bosses
    • The Mech and Data Daemon Fury now also have adds that spawn throughout the fight similar to the Data Daemon Prince and CEO
    • Adds for all boss fights will now spawn based on difficulty level. The higher the difficulty, the stronger the enemies. 


    Boss Run 

    “To go even further beyond”

    We heard your feedback! Continue wreaking havoc and cleansing Arcadegeddon of the FFC as long as you please!

    After defeating all the available bosses, players can now choose to continue and extend their runs.


    New Enemy: Lootie

    Who doesn’t love a good punching bag? Lootie is a small and elusive Golden Sapper Bot that drops valuable loot, outshining even legendary chests!

    We couldn’t even capture an image of Lootie so we’ll leave it up to your imagination on what this cute little Sapper Bot actually looks like.


    New Enemy: Brute

    The brute is the latest addition to the Data Daemon roster. This brute-al beast is tanky, aggressive and packs a punch.

    You can find this hulking hellspawn phasing in at Difficulty 8 and above.

    Brute 1280png.png


    Unique Weapons

    In the Winter Update, we added some quality of life changes such as being able to refill your Unique weapons at the vendor tile.

    In this update, your Unique weapons will no longer be destroyed when you run out of ammo. Now you don’t have to worry about keeping your weapon at low ammo to top off at TomBot’s.



    “Ultimate Bragging Rights”

    Here are rewards for the best of the best! If you place in the top of the leaderboards, you’ll now receive a crown depending on your placement.
    These crowns will be shown above your head when running through Adventure Mode and you'll be able show off your achievement to all your friends.

    There are three types of crowns; Gold, Silver, and Bronze. You will also permanently unlock their respective stickers when you receive the crown.
    So dive into in Adventure Mode and start working on those high scores!

    Leaderboards now have pages! We’ve updated the boards so you can scroll around to see more than just the top few players.


    “Shuffle [On]"

    Previously each biome had a set playlist. Even with Arcadegeddon’s one of a kind music, the same tracks playing in order every time can make music feel repetitive.

    We’ve also added new tracks to Arcadegeddon! Which new track is your favorite?

    any chance at a shoulder swap key? :D

    We have it noted down as a suggestion!



    On 3/19/2022 at 8:40 AM, Not A Real Name said:

    Is there any way to turn off boss run? I would like to fight more bosses but I find it impossible to do so after fighting the fourth one.

    For now, the only way to continue a run is to forgo doing the last boss. You can keep track of how many bosses you've currently done in the Hacks menu. 
    We're still working on the feature so check in during the next patch to see what it's like then!

    New Content

    New Biome: Spark City


    New Boss and Boss Arena : Data Daemon Fury


    Boss System Update

    We've made some changes to the Adventure mode's boss run system.

    Previously, Adventure mode only had two ways to end a run. Either hit the "End Run" button or run out of continue tokens and fail the run. Now in Patch 0.4.0, players can complete the run by defeating every single available boss once.

    We've added a new UI element on your scoreboard to keep track of all the bosses that you have defeated and how many you have left


    We've also introduced a new section in the Leaderboards (Daily and Weekly) for those who have defeated all the bosses.


    Once you've "won" in Adventure mode, you will also obtain the newest addition to Gilly's Arcade.


    This is the CEO collectible and he's the only one available for now.

    Isn't he cute?


    Difficulty Selection


    You can now choose the difficulty for the start of your Adventure run! 

    For higher difficulty levels, you can unlock them by leveling up for a more challenging start.

    Difficulty selection is only available if you choose the "Start Run" option and not the "Find Players" option.

    Starter Weapons and Weapon Feats


    You can now choose which non-unique weapon you would like to start with for each Adventure run! Every non-unique weapon now has a progression system that allows you to increase the rarity of the weapon you would like to start with. Once you complete all the feats for a specific weapon, you can even start a run with a legendary version of that weapon! Completing the weapon feats will also unlock an awesome tint for that specific weapon.

    Navigate to the Weapons section in the customization menu to start checking out the new Starter Weapons and Weapon Feats system.

    New Weapons

    We've got two new weapons coming out this patch!

    The Lobber 

    The Lobber is tough to aim but can deal high damage and with the grenade splash, you're sure to hit something.



    Lance Cannon

    With good accuracy and range, the Lance Cannon launches a spear-tipped bolt that will make pin cushions out of your enemies


    New Plugin: Blood Pact

    Hack rebalancing and changes

    Players running through Adventure mode will find that there are more Hack rarity options than before!

    We've also made certain hacks no longer have an upper limit to the amount of times you can stack them. For example, if you were lucky enough to pick up enough Titan's Banes(maybe a hundred, I'm a community manager I'm not doing the math), it may be possible to one shot a boss.

    Many hacks have had their numbers tweaked to reflect these changes.

    New Emotes

    These three new emotes are now available for purchase at Gilly's Arcade!
