Added a new element to the HUD that will inform players when their weapon needs to be reloaded. The Reload HUD appears for a few seconds in the center of the screen and will flash yellow with 1 shot left in the magazine and red when the magazine is empty.

The Reload HUD can be toggled to Full (default), Minimal or Off in the Gameplay Settings.

When set to Full, the reload indicator will appear in the center of the screen before moving to the weapon HUD (bottom right).
When set to Minimal, the reload indicator will only appear in the weapon HUD.
When it’s off, it’s off. Except in Sniper Assassin Mode, where the Reload HUD is always active.

Note: The red warning will remain active for Sniper rifles when scoped/zoomed.

Silent Assassin Inconsistencies

Fixed some issues with inconsistencies relating to the Silent Assassin tracker, scoring, XP awards and challenge unlocks. For example, some cases of an NPC discovering a target killed by an accident would result in the Silent Assassin rating being awarded only in the ‘Detailed View’ yet any related XP awards and challenges would not be unlocked. This change should make everything consistent.

Challenge Types

Moved all 5 Assassination Challenges that were previously included under the ‘Feats’ category and moved them to the ‘Assassination’ category instead. The specific challenges are Tasteless, Traceless, Hold My Hair, Someone Could Hurt Themselves, Piano Man and Straight Shot.
