Pistol Mix, the official modding tool for Pistol Whip, recently received a new quality of life upgrade, which benefits both new and seasoned modders in the creation of their Remixed Scenes.
Official Scenes + Community Remixes = <3
Following a successful beta period, Pistol Mix officially launched on June 14th on Steam and Mod.io, along with another highly-requested feature: to play User-Generated Content (UGC) directly in Pistol Whip on select headsets.
Since then, community members and modders alike have been able to create custom Remixed Scenes for other players that are showcased on Mod.io and in-game. It’s thanks to this incredible community that the library of Pistol Whip content has grown exponentially, with over 90 different Remixed Scenes added to the over 30 official Scenes in the game.
New to Pistol Mix: The Play and Place System
This new feature, titled the “Play and Place System” allows both beginner and experienced modders to add enemies and obstacles to their Remix with the click of a button - literally.
Having trouble finding where to place enemies on the beat? We got you.
Want to add obstacles in a quick and easy way, so you can polish later? It’s never been easier.
While playing your chosen music track, you can now tap specific keys along the song’s beat to place enemies and obstacles in real-time.
