Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

Love the FPS Ballistic Overkill [Steam]? Well it's about to get Leaderboards and you can check them out in a new opt-in Beta.

Reminder: If you get a black screen, or no input in fullscreen you can use this launch option on Steam

-screen-fullscreen 0

This actually seems to be fixed in the Beta — hooray! This should only apply to the current stable version.

Here's what the leaderboard system looks like:

I think it's a fantastic idea and might even get me to play it more often. I'm often quite competitive in online games, so it will be interesting to see how terrible I am overall.

To access the beta, enter the password "beta141branch" to unlock it. See the update information here.

I'm pleased that the game continues to be updated, as it is fun. I just hope they work on some more maps and game modes soon, because after 57 hours it's ended up a little stale for me now.

I don't know why, but your code doesn't work for me. The recent beta code with the vulkan support doesn't do anything as well. Any help?

I tried it on Fedora 26 with an RX 480 and it almost bricked my PC. The game was outputting garbage on the display, even when I force closed the game. Rebooting fixed the problem. Asked Steam for reimbursement.

As often happens when we cover something, it later gets released :). Their Beta period was surprisingly short though!
