- The Monster's base movement speed has been increased to 730, from 715.
- The Monster now receives about 1/3rd less damage from biting Spacemen with Magnetic Boots. (Now 4 damage per bite, down from 12.5.) This means Monster's can now be less afraid of biting Spacemen, who still receive the full bite damage amount as before.
- The Monster Remote Arm now has an orange outline visible by the Monster and Spectators.
- The Monster has received a few nerfs that make it slightly less powerful in the late game.

Monsters will now need to be more cautious around Tripmines.
- The Monster's Chitin perk now prevents the Monster from being detected by the Tripmine while disguised in a human form.

Perk Changes:

- Chocolate Space Milk now shows a visible item (Bright blue container) on a Spaceman's hip. When Chocolate Space Milk is triggered, the Spaceman will grab the item and drink it. After this process, that Spaceman character will no longer have this item on their hip. This will help other players see who has (and doesn't have) Chocolate Space Milk available and help players better pick their targets.

- All maps have received additional optimization.

Its trigger area has been reduced some, the floor now indicates the airlock's hazard zone, and the door coming in from outside has been moved slightly further away so that entering Spacemen have a better chance at avoiding it.
- Hypertrain: The Dining Car (Blue Car) has received a major visual overhaul.
- Hypertrain: There is now a teleporter system going from the center of the Orange Car to the center of the Yellow Car.

0.2.23.3 "Ice Point" Hotfix 3

- If the Monster is burrowed, the burrow crack now glows orange for spectators ghosts.
- Fixed: Messages about innocent kills and smelling murderers can show up after the game has already ended.
- There is now a "slot machine" of sorts when the server is picking the Monster each round. This is done to better help Spacemen understand the complicated (read: totally simple) process The Company undertakes to ensure you feel like your input matters at all in the universe, even if it.. Well, never mind that. Enjoy the new spinny thing!
- The Warmup (Loadout Select) screen has been improved with various blurs and fades.
- The Monster Opt-In button now changes to say whether you are a Spaceman or Monster, with appropriately colored text.
- The Health Syringe now becomes stuck in its target for 30 seconds after they are stabbed with it, in roughly the same spot they were stabbed. This includes when a Spaceman sticks themselves with a syringe, which will appear on their left forearm.

- Made most of the gray text white on all menu buttons to better illustrate they are active buttons.
- Flashlight on/off is now instantly responsive for the local player, even if they have a high ping to the server.
- The Assault Rifle now has a fire-mode indicator on its crosshair. 3 bullets for full-auto (unzoomed) and 1 bullet for semi-auto (zoomed.)
- Doors can no longer be repaired for 1 second after taking damage. This was done to prevent the notorious "inifini-repair" griefing tactic.
- Fixed: Flamethrower residue doesn't count the Flamethrower wielder as the damage dealer.
- The Acid Bomb now leaves a gooey orange splat once it's destroyed.
- Added collision to Sink and Toilets.
- There are now bubbles inside the Colorblind Virus Jar, because glub glub.
- Hit reactions (from being shot) no longer make the character's weapon arm flail around so much, and all round look a tad more realistic (but still funny.)

- Lobby: The host now sees "Change Map" text on the map lobby image so Dave can find the button more easily.
- Lobby: Improved the overall look of the map lobby image animation.
- Lobby: The Map Selection menu has had improvements to its look.
- Lobby: In the Map Selection menu, "Hazard Rating" has been changed to read as "Environmental Hazards."
- Lobby: In the Map Selection menu, All maps have had their Environmental Hazard rating shifted according to how frequently Spacemen fall off ledges, drop-bridges, and airlocks. Maps without airlocks or bottomless pits are only 1 Environmental Hazard rating, whereas something like Tidal Lock would be 3 Environmental Hazard rating, for obvious reasons.
- Lobby: In the Map Selection menu, maps no longer show recommended players, as this was mostly useless and not very accurate. All maps are now adjusted to be playable at under 5 players, BEST at around 5 to 15 players, and support up to 20 players for maximum chaos.

- The 5 available "Eyeball" visors (Blue, Green, Brown, Cataracts, Dilated) have received some artwork improvements and now animate in a nervous manner.
- Improved appearance of Robro head at short distances.
- The Helmet selection screen now shows all helmets available in the game, and an icon showing the various ways of obtaining them. If there is a number instead of an icon, this represents the level you need to be to unlock the helmet.
- You can now click on shop helmets that you don't have and it will take you to the shop page where you can obtain said helmet.
- There is now a large tooltip when entering the Helmet selection screen, explaining how multiple helmet selection works. (For the noobs.)
