MultiVersus v0.1 Patch Notes: New Event, Taz Nerfs, & More

With the release of MultiVersus’ Open Beta for all players, plenty of changes have been made. Here are the patch notes for MultiVersus’ v0.1 update for the full release of the Open Beta.

MultiVersus, the free-to-play Platform Fighting game is launching into its full Open Beta, releasing for every player to download.

While the Early Access period was short, it gave plenty of players the chance to enjoy the game. And help out Player First Games with bug fixes and character balancing.

That means, with the release to any and all players on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, Player First Games are bringing some changes to the official Open Beta launch of MultiVersus.

MultiVersus Open Beta v0.1 Patch Notes & Changes – Character Rotation, Balancing, & More

Character Changes

Like other MultiVersus Patch Notes, character changes have a legend to help players read them. “+” signifies a buff, “-” means a nerf, and a “~” means a general change or rework.

Batman

  • – Air/Ground Neutral Attack: Cooldown on Batarang increased from 13s to 14s. Pick up of Batarang returns 11.55 seconds up from 11.05. This means that the minimum time between Batarang throws is 2.45s up from 1.95s.
    • Batman’s Batarang pick-up cooldown created very small windows where the Batarang wasn’t in play. This change should make it so opponents of Batman have a larger window between Batarang attacks to gain an advantage.
  • Bug Fix: Air/Ground Side Special: Fixed a bug where Grapple would sometimes shoot you off the map.

Bugs Bunny

  • Air Up Attack: Startup window increased by 2 frames, active window decreased by 2 frames
    • The hitbox made it so that Bugs Bunny hit nearly all around himself. This should make the up air a bit more reasonable to deal with.

Iron Giant

  • Bug Fix: Air Down Attack: can no longer combo into itself
  • Bug Fix: Air/Ground Down Special: can no longer repeatedly hit and lock opponents in place forever
  • Bug Fix: Air Up Attack: Can no longer repeatedly hit opponents

Steven Universe

  • – Air Neutral Attack: Knocks opponents up and away to prevent an infinite attack caused by alternating Air Down Attack and Air Neutral Attack.
MultiVersus Taz
WB Games

Taz

  • Bug Fix: Fixed a bug that was preventing Taz from doing any aerial attacks once he reached his air special limit.
  • – Air/Ground Side Special:
    • If you have been following early access, Taz’s Tornado has been dominating his character kit and presenting a non-obvious knowledge check for newer players. By reducing its effectiveness we hope to improve his gameplay health and loop and bring the game to a healthier state for newer players.
      • A decrease in the tornado’s duration and the additional duration gained by passing an ally.
      • Removing one of the multi-hits of the tornado.
      • Decreasing the hit pause of all the hits in the tornado.
      • Reduced knockback from the final hit in the tornado from 1375 to 1275.
    • Right now, our plan is to transition the Tornado to a cooldown move in an upcoming patch. The tornado is Taz’s signature move so we want to keep it as one of his most powerful attacks, with the cooldown forcing more intentional use of it. These nerfs will reduce Taz’s strength, especially at higher levels of play, so expect some buffs to the other moves in his kit in the near future. Thank you for your patience and we will continue to evaluate Taz’s gameplay health.

Those are all of the changes for the latest update of MultiVersus. This is the first update for free-to-play players to experience, so hopefully, it will be a smoother experience for newcomers!

But there are plenty of updates coming in the future, as the original leaker also revealed many characters that could come to MultiVersus.
