Prime Matter detailed the upcoming Gungrave G.O.R.E patch, which promises some rather substantial improvements and changes.
One of the biggest changes in this patch is the addition of full auto. Previously Grave would take four shots per button input, meaning the average stage would involve a few hundred inputs. Enabling this disables Death Spear, the charged attack that knocks down enemies, along with some other minor changes.
The bulk of the changes improve quality of life. These range from limiting the amount of rockets, players deal more damage, more opportunities to break shields, and a lot more.
Those interested in the full list of changes can find them below:
