The guard break effect occurs when operators with a ballistic shield are hit by an explosion or take certain types of damage (from a scale of a minimum of 50 to trigger the guard break to 100 damage).
The severity of the guard break is proportional to the damage done to the shield. Electric damage and the minimum 50 damage threshold will trigger the minimum strength guard break animation.
Melee damage, concussion FX, sonic bursts, and explosions of 100 damage or higher will trigger the the maximum strength guard break animation.
Operators positioned behind a Clash, Monty, Blitz, or Fuze are now also partially protected from explosion damage (this still applies even if they are from the opposing team). This protection also applies if the shield is on the operator’s back. Damage taken from the explosion is proportionally calculated based on the operator’s exposure to the blast.
Instead of folding Montagne’s Extendable shield, he now as a guard break animation.
Shield explosion protection is reduced to 66% (down from 80%).
Changes to the defuser interaction that allow players to pick up the defuser, even in situations where it might have originally been inaccessible, due to falling into difficult-to-reach spaces.
Improvements to the chat filter feedback system.
The ban ticker has been deactivated for custom games. It will remain visible in all other game modes.
Fixed a bug where sometimes defenders spawn on top of each other when in 2nd Floor Master Bedroom on Chalet.
Fixed a bug where players can’t vault over the half-wall/railing in 2F Library Stairs on Chalet.
Fixed a bug where dropped defuser can be difficult to recover from behind the table of 2F Cigar Balcony on Kafe.
