Rolling Sparks Now Only Does Multiple Explosions when Unobstructed

Before Patch 1.12.3, Rolling Sparks used to stack its mini-explosions when aimed directly into the ground. This allowed you to concentrate the area of the damage, making 20,000 damage nukes possible with the right build. However, as of Patch 1.12.3, Rolling Sparks multi-explosion effect now only happens when unobstructed.

This means that multi-explosions can only happen in a straight line and, if aimed at the ground, only one explosion is generated. Due to this bug fix and the damage nerf to Rolling Sparks, you won't be getting the same high damage numbers as pre-Patch 1.12.3.

Possible Unstable Performance Fixes

  • For the PS5 version of the game, unstable framerate may be improved by using the Rebuild Database option from the device’s safe mode.
  • In some PC versions, Ray Tracing may be unintentionally enabled and cause unstable performance. Please check the Ray Tracing setting in the System > Graphics Settings > Raytracing Quality from the title screen or in-game menu.
  • In the PC Version, the message Inappropriate activity detected may appear without cheating. To fix this issue, please verify the integrity of the game's files before restarting the game.
  • In the PC version, unstable framerate may be caused by third party applications that control mouse behavior. Deactivating these third party applications may improve performance.

The patch notes were confirmed by the official Bandai Namco site.
