Second patch for Radical Heights adds new gadget & extended customization, packs performance improvements

Boss Key Productions has released the second big patch for its free to play battle royale game, Radical Heights. According to the release notes, this patch adds a new gadget, the Scanner, introduces more ways to customize your characters and adds new bike ramps.

Furthermore, this second update comes with general performance optimizations (meaning that players should see increased framerates), improves server region selection, adds new animations for healing/eating burgers in prone and crouch, and balances some weapons.

As always, Steam will download this patch and you can find its complete changelog below.
