Update 1.2 Patch Notes

Disney Heroes: Battle Mode Update 1.2

Howdy all. It’s been awhile and we have a big update for everyone. The 1.2 Update introduces our first new… well… battle mode since global launch: The Heist! This is a 5-player, real-time, cooperative mode where you work together to catch a Thief who is relieving the City of its key valuables.

Because this feature is new and different, we plan to release it only on Server 1 for about a week. We want it to have some “closed beta” time to work out any kinks, especially with the real-time component. We’ll keep everyone in the loop and let you know as soon as it’s ready for wide release.

In the meantime, please check out the other new features, heroes, improvements, and other content. There are a lot of other goodies to enjoy! As alway, full details below.


  • New heroes:
    • Maui from Disney’s Moana (coming August 1st!)
    • Merida from Disney•Pixar’s Brave
    • Stitch from Disney’s Lilo & Stitch
  • The Heist:
    • Work with 4 other players to catch the Thief in this real-time cooperative mode
  • Russian language support
  • Tons of new Disney Emoji for in-game chat
  • Polish, improvements, bug fixes, and more


“Listen. For a thousand years, I’ve only been thinking about keepin’ this hair silky, getting my hook, and being awesome, again.”

Maui is a front-line tank! Maui’s hero chips will soon be available as the August sign-in reward on August 1st.


Shark Bite
When an enemy within melee range of Maui has less than a certain amount of HP,* Maui transforms into a shark and bites them, dealing true damage.**

*Maui won’t use this skill until he can KO an enemy.
**True damage ignores armor and reality.

Take Flight (Normal Damage)
Maui turns into a hawk and sends gusts of wind at enemies. The two closest enemies are dealt damage and knocked back.

Psych Up
Maui does a motivational dance at the start of combat to grant his allies Courage. Courage increases energy gained from taking damage. Courage remains active on allies until they use their active skill.

The Courage effect from “Psych Up” also reduces normal damage taken.


“There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better.”

Merida is a back-line damage hero! Merida’s hero chips can be found in the Heist shop on Server 1, and in the Diamond Crate on Servers 2-12.


Gaelic Volley (Normal Damage)
Merida leaps into the air and fires eight arrows at the enemy team, dealing damage with each arrow.

On Target (Normal Damage)
Merida lines up a shot that can hit up to 3 enemies in a line, dealing damage to each enemy hit.

Pride of the Clan
Once Merida falls below half HP, she gains increased attack speed and basic damage.

Merida’s arrows rend her target’s armor, reducing it for a few seconds. This effect can stack.


“Nobody gets left behind.”

Stitch is a back-line damage hero! Stitch’s hero chips can be found in the VIP Crate.


Plasma Blast (Normal Damage)
Stitch pulls out all of his blasters and attacks the closest enemy 4 times, dealing damage with each hit.

Stitch rudely marks a target, slowing their movement speed and their attack speed for a few seconds. Shortly after, a security gun shoots the target dealing damage to the enemy and nearby enemies.

626 Shuffle
Stitch tussles with an enemy, temporarily stunning them. Stitch hits the enemy four times, stealing HP with each hit. Stitch only uses this skill when he is below a certain amount of HP, and can only use it once every so often.

Feel The Groove
Every time Stitch crits, he gains energy.

Hero Balance and Combat Changes

  • Shields
    • We noticed some inconsistencies in how shields work and wanted to standardize them. The changes below make it so shields function just like extra health.
      • Energy when Damaged: Shielded characters now gain energy when they take damage, just like non shielded characters.
      • Status Effects: Shields no longer block status effects or knockbacks in certain situations.
    • Overall these changes make shields a little more powerful in combat.
  • Kevin Flynn
    • Fixed an issue where Flynn’s “Power Cleanse” (White Skill) would not remove negative status effects.
  • Violet
    • Violet can no longer interrupt her “Shield Roll” (Blue Skill) with her “Secure Squad” (White Skill). This change prevents her from being left in the middle of the enemy team.
  • Mike Wazowski
    • Mike can no longer interrupt his “On a Roll” (Blue Skill) with his “Sonic Belch” (White Skill). This change prevents him from being left in the middle of the enemy team.
  • Judy Hopps
    • Judy’s “Bunny Hop” (White Skill) had a typo in the skill text. The skill now correctly states the movement and attack speed are slowed by 80%. There is no functional change here.
  • Jack-Jack
    • Jack-Jack’s “Jack-Jack Attack” (Purple Skill) now triggers off other fiery effects such Hector Barbossa’s “Hot Shot” (Purple Skill) and Merida’s “Bullheaded Redhead” memory disk.

Hi, In the patch notes there is no mention of HEIST for servers 2+. Only mention server 1 heroes. Does all servers get the HEIST feature or is it exclusive to server 1. Also what heroes will it have ?


Heist will only be available on Server 1 for the time being.


The second paragraph clearly states it will only be on server 1 for an indefinite period of testing.


When will the patch hit server 3?


Was hoping for Moana this update, but will settle with these :wink:


Kinda sucks for a major feature to be advertised, especially on Facebook, and then for only select people to get it. I understand beta testing, but I feel like they could’ve held off on advertising it until it was ready for full release.


I hope putting bogo in guild crate means you’re going to start rotating it more frequently. Also a little disgusting that you had a vote on Facebook to find out who most people wanted (Stitch) and then put him where the majority of players can’t get him (VIP crate). I thought PerBlue was better than that.


I agree with you I thought they will add it in sign in rewards.


Might have missed it, but I don’t think I saw any mention of where Tia Dalma will be after this month’s sign in reward?


Same thought. I’m not a stitch fan, but this is bad on the company’s part. I’m just glad it wasn’t Merida.


When we can play? I mean when the server will available?

That’s crappy, yes. I nedd the stamina…


So what’s the update for servers 9-12? Do we not get anything new?


Start a new Server maybe, too?


I hope we can get the devtech outfit for Elastigirl


agree with you, i think its very unfortunate for us f2p players, because we need that ads to get free friend stamina


I didn’t even had option to watch for normal stamina, so not surprising that not many people used it…


Yup I am bored
When can we play


Ttraditional Chinese language please :slight_smile:
