    TEK Suits (Chest, Leggings, Helm, Gauntlets, and Boots)
    MEKs (MEK Attachments & Ammo included)
    Cluster Grenades

Official Server Genesis wipe for the following:

    Tamed Reapers

Note: Any tamed MEK or Reaper that was in a cryopod now cannot be spawned when deploying that cryopod. You can either let it expire, or throw them out.

TEK Suits:

    Increased TEK Suit repair costs by approximately 20%
    Wearing a full TEK suit will prevent you from being targeted by bees when opening a bee hive
    Capped TEK Suit durability at 1500
    TEK Suit repair costs now scale with quality


    Pistol Damage versus Tamed Creatures reduced by 30%
    MEK Rocket Boost (tapping/holding space) should no longer damage tamed creatures or players.
    Reduce MEK movement speed by 20% when shield is up
    Sword Damage versus Tamed Creatures and Players reduced by 25%

Bog Spider Balance Changes:

    Reduced the range at which it can grapple an enemy to just slightly below maximum auto turret range (5800 units)

    Increased polymer harvesting by approximately 30%


    Decreased the maximum damage scale from 12.5x to 8x when charging
    Increased the time/distance it takes to charge up to max by 20% (so it'll take longer to hit that 8x)

    Initiated a one-time forced mindwipe cooldown clearance of all characters on Official Servers


    Added a "Grind All" function added to grinders

    Note: This setting is defaulted to OFF. Also it does not save, meaning it must be turned on if you leave stasis range. This will be resolved in a future update
    Gachas will no longer auto consume buff soup/food. This means they won't accidentally eat them when they're stored in troughs.
