Y3S4.1 Patch Notes

12/17/2018 12:00 PM

The Y3S4.1 Patch will deploy on December 17th for PC, and December 18th for console. The Y3S4.1 patch is a bit lighter, but resolves some major bugs and exploits that were discovered with the Wind Bastion release. For console, this patch includes the fix to the Alpha Pack and Renown visual glitch.


GAMEPLAY

USER EXPERIENCE

  • Visual upgrade for destruction effects and ripples
  • Visual design upgrade for Police cars.

Visual upgrades and optimizations have been ongoing, and the new destruction decals and police paint jobs are a part of that. Destruction decals are now optimized for 4K and come in a greater variety, and the police cars have that new car smell.

BALANCING

KAID
  • Nerf to .44 Mag Semi Auto
    • Increased recoil (will now be more difficult to chain shots precisely at long range)
    • Decreased damage (reduced from 74 > 54)
NOMAD
  • Stun grenades (3) replaced with Claymore (1)

The synergy between Nomad’s airjabs and the three stun grenades gave her a bit too much CC utility individually. While the addition of a Claymore can provide Nomad with some trap functionality, we’ll be monitoring the interactions between her gadget and the Claymore to see if this is a better fit.

VALKYRIE
  • Adjustments to Valkyrie’s throw curve.
    • Throw curve now projects straight from the center of the player cam.
    • Can no longer be thrown to excessive distances.

We re–adjusted the new throw curves for Valkyrie’s Black Eye to take original design into consideration. Valk also started focusing more on leg day for a balanced workout routine.

IQ
  • IQ’s gadget now responds different to recoil.

After the recoil update in Grim Sky, this change was made to help optimize the interaction between IQ’s gadget and the new recoil changes.
