  • New Solo Bank It mode: Battle 11 others for individual glory in a cash-grabbing free-for-all.

  • Fair play enhancements: Improved detection and stricter bans for cheaters.

  • Gadgets: C4 and RPG deal less player damage, Flashbang and Vanishing Bomb cooldowns reduced.


The Finals is a competitive shooter where you and two teammates face off against multiple teams of three in a race for the top spot. It has some unique features that aren’t found in other shooters of its kind, and its three-class system gives players a lot of tactical freedom in how they play and move around.

The game’s commentary comes in the form of various hosts talking about the status of a certain team or the game in general, and the virtual crowds that you’ll see throughout the game carry that through. Within this article, we will be taking a look at the recent patch notes 1.5.0 of The Finals.

What Are The Important Changes In Patch 1.5.0 Of The Finals?



The first change within the game is the introduction of a new game mode. This is called the  Limited Time Mode Solo Bank It.  This is a new twist on the popular Bank It game. In the gSolo Bank It game mode players are pitted against one another in a battle for personal glory in an arena full of 12 players. Like Bank It, players must accumulate 40,000 to win the game. The first player to deposit in the money-out station will be declared the winner of that game.

Outside the new mode, Update 1.5.0 has a litany of balance changes, tweaks, and bug fixes. These changes are done in-game to make sure the gameplay experience has been improved from the last patch. In addition, with Patch 1.5.0 there is the introduction of The Finals fair play guidelines. This includes revamped and improved detection methods for unfair play. From now on, the game will restrict cheaters with more confidence and will be able to stand firmly behind our bans.


Let us look at some of the upcoming changes in the gameplay.
