PATCH 2.2

Patch 2.2 will be deployed on Monday, July 23rd for PC, and July 24th for consoles. The primary focus on this patch is balancing changes and bug fixes.

GAMEPLAY CHANGES

ADVANCED DRONE DEPLOYMENT

Players will now have the option of not being immediately pulled into their drone’s camera after deploying it.

Standard: Will pull players into drone view immediately following deployment of their drone.

Advanced: Players will need to manually enter the drone’s camera after deployment.

OBSERVATION TOOL CYCLING

Players will now be able to select their preference for rotating through the Observation Tool groups, as well as cycle through the first and last Defender cameras.

Following the implementation of the new Observation Tool system, we have seen players express that they have two different expectations for how the cycling of the Observation Tools should function. Some players would like to see the “next tool” key bind stay within the same group, while others would like to see it cycle to the next grouping.

RESET KEY BINDINGS (PC)

The enter Observation Tool key bind can be found in the Operator Control section, and the Exit Observation Tool key can be found in the Observation Tool Control.

With the introduction of the new Observation Tool System, we split the key bindings section into three groups, General, Operator Control, Observation Tool Control. Enter/Exit Observation Tool was not split between Operator and Observation Tool controls, which led to that key bind not responding as expected.
