PS5 Update Version: 1.000.026

Today, we’re bringing you an update with some balance changes and dev comments on future changes to both the Stun Gun and the Cloaking Device!

The second Community Challenge has come to an end. Congratulations on reaching the goal! We were never worried (maybe a little worried), enjoy your brand new Boombox — and special shout out to player “Goo and Sledge” for pushing the platform an astounding 185km!

Also, you may have noticed that we have switched to using Embark ID as our main Display name in-game. You can change your Embark ID display name by visiting the Embark Portal.

Now! Let’s get into the changes included in Update 2.5.0:

Balance Changes

  • GadgetsDev Note: We’re aware of player frustrations around being stunned by the Stun Gun and are planning some changes to get it to a better place. However, these changes require more testing before we deploy them so it will be update 2.6 before these arrive.
    • Data Reshaper
      • Range increased from 5m to 15m
      • Target FOV decreased from 25 degrees to 12 degreesDev note: to account for the increased range.
    • Stun Gun
  • Specializations
    • Cloaking Device
      • Increased the activation cost from 14.2% to 33%.Dev Note: This does not change the maximum sustain time, but makes it drain faster when toggling it on and off too frequently.In addition to this change, we’re also investigating changes to the visibility of cloaked players, but these will not be deployed until the 2.6 update as they require more testing
    • Mesh Shield
      • Decreased health from 1000 to 750
  • Weapons
    • KS-23
      • Bullet dispersion reduced when jumping, sprinting, or zoomed in, to make the weapon more accurate


  • AFK/Idle rule enhancements
  • Added detections for software such as cheat tools and injectors, leading to suspensions

Exciting things are on the horizon for The Finals players. Stay tuned for the next patch release that promises to bring more enhancements and tweaks for an even more immersive gaming experience.
