  • Fixed an issue that caused players eliminated in the Gulag to not appear in the Buy Station for squad members to buy back.
  • Fixed an issue causing players to skip the downed state and immediately perish despite having an assimilated squad member still alive.
  • Fixed an issue preventing players from jumping out of the plane during Infil.
  • Fixed an issue causing the After Action Report from appearing correctly after a match.

DMZ

  • Fixed an issue that was causing players to get kicked out of the Backpack interface if looting an eliminated Player opponent that disconnected during the interaction.
  • Fixed an issue preventing players from equipping Lethal and Tactical equipment.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to encounter the “Failed to Connect to Datacenters” error while extracting.

As part of a global change, armor-piercing ammo will no longer carry a multiplier against armored opponents. The change is significant, especially in modes like DMZ where TTK is important. Additionally, the removal of the Counter UAV takes away a lot of information from players. Gamers will have to adjust to this change and play a little more tactically moving forward.
