Roblox Islands has released the new battle update on September 17, 2022! In this patch, you’ll find a wide range of changes and bug fixes have been added to the experience. These will hopefully help clear up any issues you may have had and allow you to find some new things to do in the game.
You can find the official patch notes below for the update which was released on official Iceland Discord.
This is the first step in revitalizing the fight for Iceland! We have now introduced weaknesses and resistances to all hostile enemies that you will encounter on your adventures. All weapons will now have type associations. Matching the correct weapon type to an enemy’s weakness will reward you with more damage. But if the enemy is resistant, then your damage will be reduced. All of this information and more can be accessed through your new match catalog.
🗡️ Weapon types 🗡️
- Physical types: Slashing, Striking, Piercing
- Magic Types: Inferno, Hydro, Storm, Quake, Ethereal, Void
- Some weapons include both physical and magical types.
🛡️ Weaknesses and resistance 🛡️
- Enemies can be neutral, weak, or resistant to certain weapon types.
- Neutral: Base Damage, Weak: +25% Damage, Resistant: -20% Damage.
