  • Added new sounds for center engine on drillevator
  • Fixed that sometimes clients could join and not get the UI element.
  • Fixed issue where Victory Poses could be found in Lost Packs, they are only supposed to be found in Crates

  • [Cluster Charges OC] Reduced max ammo slightly. Reduced cluster fragments by 2.
  • Fixed gear stats overlapping Paintjob selector, when too many stats
  • Fixed status effect related crash
  • Fixed issue with Status effects that gave damage not always rewarding kills to players correctly. E.g. a projectile sets an enemy on fire and dies from it later. The projectile would be gone and the kill instigator could not be resolved.
  • Sentries are now placeable (again) on the floodlights of the minehead in Point Extraction
  • Fixed case where collecting a Data Cell would also count as collecting a rift crystal.

  • [Scorching Tide OC] Sticky flames are now being dropped by the projectiles again.
  • [Cluster Charges OC] Tweaked clip and ammo to make them fit nicely again.

  • Fixed the sticky ice from Cryo Cannon: Crystal Nucleation OC could receive Status Effects causing weird effects like it being affected by the Dreadnoughts Pheromone effect that spawns swarmers.
  • Fixed LOK-1 Sm?t Trigger OS™ overkilling with 1 extra bullet in some cases
  • Fixed issue where upgrades that changed the effects on weapons, e.g. Materials, Impact Effects / sounds. Would not be applied.
  • Fixed Order of the Deep First Person armor getting skin color assigned to glowy bits instead of glowy material.
  • Deepscan mission Resonance Target Proximity scanner now indicates height even if you are far away, unless you are far enough away to lose signal
  • Fixed visual effect for coil gun OC Necro-Thermal Catalyst not working on clients.
  • Fixed Rival Sniper turret missing muzzle flash.
