- Fixed inconsistent propagation on reinforced tall walls with a destroyable upper half where sound would not pass.
- With this fix we’re aware that an issue still exists where sound will propagate over broken walls even when the wall is reinforced. We will continue working to address it in a future update.
CHANGES TO UBICLUB CHALLENGES , TROPHIES AND ACHIEVEMENTS.
With this new season, our trophies and achievements are modified to offer challenges that are corresponding to the current Siege experience. .
Here is how different platforms will be impacted, keep in mind that completion criteria might have changed. (Check trophy description if needed.) .
- Trophies in progress and not finished will be reset.
- Trophies completed, will still be completed, but their description and visual aspect will be updated.
- Trophies in progress and not finished, will see their progression carried over.
- Trophies completed, will still be completed, but their description and visual aspect will be updated.
The game developers are continuing to work to address the exploits involving Clash, Claymores, and Deployable Shields. The final fix should be deployed during the season. In the meantime, we will be pushing a partial fix and additional fail-safes that will allow us to re-enable Clash, deployable shields, and claymores. The goal of these failsafes is to make sure that the glitches cannot be exploited even in the chance that they are replicated.
- Clash: Added a failsafe that resets them back to normal if they achieve the glitch.
- IQ: Added a failsafe that turns her visible if she manages to go invisible.
- Deployable shields: Added a failsafe that will not allow players to shoot if they glitch, and the shield will be automatically deployed on the ground after 2 seconds.
We are also temporarily changing Warden and Nøkk’s secondary gadget loadouts to minimize potential issues.
- Warden: Replace 1x Deployable Shield with 2x Impact Grenades
- Nøkk: Replace 1x Claymore with 3x Stun Grenades
This change will be in place with the start of the season. We will restore their original loadouts during Season 2 once our complete fix is deployed.
To provide more readability on defuser assignment, in casual bomb game modes the defuser icon now shows up next to who the defuser is assigned to on the ready screen. If the assigned player leaves during prep phase and the defuser is reassigned, the icon will still be visible on newly assigned player.
