HAWKED | 1.4.1 Update Notes

Look alive, Renegades! The following changes are available in HAWKED as of the latest update on Thursday, March 28, 2024. Update your game to play the latest version of HAWKED for free on your platform of choice.


  • Added a new type of Renegade customization: Masks
  • New Contracts have been added to the potential pool, plus tweaks to Contract balance.



Smooth traversal has always been a top priority for HAWKED. We want it to feel intuitive, giving Renegades the same tricks to get around X-Isle while inviting them to rely more on their Gear, Weapons, and treasures to outwit rivals. 

That said, the overuse of certain traversal mechanics can make for a negative competitive experience and sap the fun out of the hunt. With Update 1.4.1, we’re making a few changes to how jumping and sprinting work. We toned down the ability to jump non-stop to make combat feel more tactical, and for jumping to be used more selectively, with awareness of its limits. We also made changes to general traversal speed. If you’re only holding a traverser, you’ll be able to explore X-Isle much faster than if you’re primed with a weapon.

Have a read, check out the video, and try them out for yourself when Update 1.4.1 lands this week. As always, we’re reading all your feedback and reviewing match data and will make more changes in the future as necessary.


  • Jumping is now more heavily affected by a decline depending on how often it is used. This means repetitive actions (such as bunny-hopping) are no longer as effective.
