NEW Naut: Smiles[edit | edit source]
Skills[edit | edit source]
Trappers Hook: Throw out a hook that will drag enemy Awesomenauts towards you for a short duration. Tail Whip: Smack your enemies with your steel stail, knocking them away. Bush Fire: Use your flamethrower to burn everyone in a line.
Short backstory[edit | edit source]
After he and the other renegades escaped from prison, Smiles hid in the swamps on Ribbit II. With a background of tracking and capturing targets, he put his skills to good use. The unorthodox method of poaching swamp rodents with his flame thrower, resulted in heavily burned pelts and hides, but it turned out a great business success as the dark charred bags were an instant hit on the amphibian black market. One day an old friend knocked on his door with a plan of vengeance. Step 1: join the Awesomenauts!
NEW skin: Pyromancer Smiles[edit | edit source]
Some crocodiles just want to watch the world burn. Pyromancer Smiles won't settle for that. He has peered into the flames and had visions of him setting all of creation ablaze! He's left the (now scorched) swamps of Ribbit II on a quest to fulfill this dark destiny, and stowed away on the Awesomenauts vessel to visit distant worlds. What's left standing after a battle is incinerated by the Pyromancer, until only ash remains.
He's dark, he's angry, and he's armed with a flamethrower. Don't cross Pyromancer Smiles as he'll burn you to a crisp! The Flames command it!
NEW: added portraits[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]
- The scoreboard now tracks damage done to the base together with the damage done to turrets.
- Opening the shop while having the scoreboard open will now open the shop and close the scoreboard, just as it was before 4.0.
- Fixed that sometimes after closing the Steam overlay and pressing enter to chat, it would register as a shift+enter instead, opening all chat instead of team chat.
- Fixed that if you moved the mouse very close to the centre of Coco and used her AA, her arms would extend in a different direction than her attack.
- There is a new, more streamlined tutorial flow for new players.
- Fixed that running on 1280x1024 or using the Screen Adjustment feature would cut off parts of the in-game HUD.
- Steam IDs are no longer logged while in character select, fixing that players could figure out who they were going to play against before the match actually started.
- Fixed that practice games could be joined via chat, for a short period.
- Fixed that banned players wouldn’t get a ‘cancelled’ notification when trying to queue
Achievements[edit | edit source]
- Fixed that (some) counters for achievements would not update for some players.
- Fixed that the Slowwolf announcer would not be granted to a player that got the “Welcome back!” achievement in a beta.
Menus[edit | edit source]
- Fixed that League 1 didn't exist for some older seasons in the leaderboad history.
- Depth issue fix for character icons in menus on Mac.
- Fixed that it was possible to get stuck in a state where all buttons in the Play menu are locked after trying to join a custom game of which the last slot was just taken by another player.
- Fixed an issue where clicking multiple times on a character profile picture in a lobby would result in an endless growing tooltip.
- The tooltip about the items that you can buy now correctly states level 3 instead of level 4 at which you have unlocked all items.
Sound[edit | edit source]
- Optimised all sounds to use less space on disk and in memory and to load a bit quicker.
- The “test voice” button in the Armory now correctly plays voice lines of premium skins.
- Announcer voices and player-triggered character voices are now better audible.
Bots[edit | edit source]
- Updated Veanko’s Leon, Lonestar, Raelynn, Gnaw, Skree, Clunk and Ayla bots
Modding[edit | edit source]
- Added a new option to AffectAreas to change a player’s team. This can for example be used to make mods where six players are in a single team or where you need to switch team during the mod. It is also possible to play local versus this way if only one of the local players switches team. This is an experimental feature that probably has a lot of issues, use at your own risk. For example, the deathtimers are disabled once this is used and switching to a team that doesn’t have graphics for the current class produces broken graphics (like a neutral team Lonestar).
- Added an option to Button to only react to a specific character class.
- Added automatic backup to the map editor (once every two minutes and when exiting the editing session).
- Added an option to the AIDebugger (the F4 editor) to view detailed events about character gameplay. There is also an option to filter these events and to show them only for the selected character.
- Fixed a crash when using the WriteToTextbox AI block in combination with zero respawn time or switchClass/switchTeam.
- Fixed that actions and conditions weren’t sorted alphabetically in the BehaviourCreator tool.
- Fixed that AffectAreas, JumpPads and Shops didn’t become invisible in the editor when the “Gameplay objects” group was hidden.
