Patch Notes

Patch Notes for Update 0.9.1

This is the first patch after Milestone 9, and its full of stat changes to improve the meta. This week, we focused on polishing existing systems before we start working on the major updates we have planned for the weapon net-code.

This week’s Community Stream was postponed in honor of Mother’s Day.

Bug Fixes

  1. Fixed bug where Poison Damage would completely deplete a character’s Shields instead of ignoring shields and dealing true damage to health.
  2. Fixed recent matches browser not showing some match preview details
  3. Fixed the tooltips on Incendiary Rounds (didn’t account for the 10x increase)
  4. Fixed bug where instant respawns didn’t have a cooldown
  5. Fixed bug where players could recall immediately after exiting a drone, but before the drone-screen-put-away animation montage had finished. This would fail to clear the “using drone” variable, which prevents players from using a gun.
  6. Fixed 2 entries of thermal vision in the ability store / loadout editor

 

Miscellaneous

  1. Increased “rangefinder” distance for revealing enemy health bars to 250 meters (was 100 meters)
  2. Added “Always Hide Healthbars during Replays” gameplay setting
  3. Empty slots in the loadout editor have a blank icon instead of a question mark
  4. Added a confirmation prompt before exiting game
  5. Updated the Nexus Pedestal
  6. Chat messages now fade out after 5 seconds
  7. Changed the font and lowered the opacity of overhead healthbars
  8. Changed the font of minimap point of interest widget labels
  9. Updated Ironsights and Bolt Action mag icons
  10. Pressing escape will now close the large map if it’s open instead of opening the escape menu
  11. Added a “toggle crouch” gameplay setting
  12. New icons for Life Steal Augment and Seer Range Booster
  13. LOD and performance improvements for many fort objects (walls, floors, force fields, etc)
