Well, this is certainly interesting. They did not provide the achievement descriptions this time, only the pictures. I do like the sound of this update.

Also: look closely at the map in the background.

Touché. I suppose it's like having a really good dinner - when it's over, you're full, and it was so damn tasty you'd gladly eat it again. But the plates are empty. Of course, if you continued eating, you'd give yourself a stomachache and probably develop an aversion to that food.

Level 3 dispensers look badass. They restore 60 metal every two seconds or so, but don't seem to have an increased capacity from a level 1. As for the cloak, for every two units of metal an ammo box restores, it replenishes one percent of the cloak. Thus the rectangular ammo box restores 50% of the ...
