1.2 PATCH NOTES

KNOWN ISSUES

“Teamwork” and “Bonus Round” Badges

  • We are working on a server side patch for these ASAP.

Playstation sign in bug for new players

  • [affects Playstation only] There is an issue with some brand new players that do not already have an EA account linked to PSN being unable to sign into the game. We’re working a fix for this to get out ASAP.

KINGS CANYON UPDATES

  • Thunderdome has had some small changes to loot placement, mostly around moving loose loot into bins for more visibility on where the loot is.
  • The Pit has about 2x the loot in it
  • Repulsor has loot bins added to the west side of the area, on top of the trapezoid buildings.
  • Some loot added to the underground pit in the small town in Shattered Forest.
  • Added voice over lines that will callout Jump Towers when you ping them. You can now ping the jump towers.

QUALITY OF LIFE / BUG FIXES

  • Decreased the delay with items showing up in the menu when looting a Death Box.
  • Mini Map direction will now display correctly while in the ship or skydiving.
  • Improved server performance for some cases of rubberbanding when using items.
  • Removed an exploit that allowed a squad to have more than one of the same Legend.
  • Removed an exploit that allowed to “bunny hop” while healing.
  • Fixed issue where players might “bounce” off your squad when breaking off during a skydive.
  • Improved skydiving so it should feel more responsive and smooth.
  • Thermite grenades now cause damage to doors.
  • Squad Summary Page Improvements
    • cursor support added.
    • players can now mute / report players from this page.
    • players can now report teammates that have disconnected.
  • Caustic barrels can now be triggered to disabled by friendly teammates.

  • Added cooldown [.5 seconds] before you can reuse the last zipline you were on.
  • Pathfinder’s Grapple now has a blue crosshair indicator that will appear when the Grapple is in range of objects it can connect to.
  • When grappling a zipline, the trajectory will now pull players to a point below the zipline rather than above. This makes it so players are more likely to connect with the zipline instead of flying over it.
  • Made improvements to how weapon reticles and optics are displayed when playing with colorblind settings.
  • Added colorblind support for threat vision scope and Bloodhound’s Ultimate.
  • Removed the ability for players to change game settings not intended to be modified on a client level. Our intent is to prevent exploits like removing muzzle flash, disabling lighting, and other changes that give players an unfair competitive advantage.
