239 hours. That is how much time I have been playing Super Monday Night Combat. Hey admitting you have an addiction problem is always the first step. 

Anyways its a new week and thus the rules have changed again for Super Monday Night Combat.  This weeks update brings a brand new map into the rotation called Gun Mountain. Gun Mountain will also bring a brand new hazard into the game called the Shelly Cannons which cost $750, recharge every 2 1/2 minutes and will shower the entire enemy side of the map. 

This weeks update also allows players to outfit their pros with pieces of flair. As of now you can only place flair on the pros chest but they will be updating this feature in the coming weeks 

Finally this weeks free pro rotation will include Assault, Cheston, Combat Girl, Karl, Tank, and Wascot.

Check out all the update notes, bug fixes, nerfs, buffs and more below
