Update 2.5.2 - Week 1 Patch
[Image: 337cc377e3c09769a7d20b121110490db24fcb1b.png]

Hey all, thanks for trying out the latest Update 2.5 hotfix.

Today’s patch is all about continuing our goal of solidifying the Battalion 1944 base game for the future. We collated all the bugs reported this past weekend and have fixed the majority of the issues as we head towards the very first major tournament for our early access players, The Blitzkrieg Masters - Amsterdam 2018. The 2.5 update and today’s 2.5.2 patch will lay the foundations for Major Update 3, the largest overhaul of Battalion 1944 to date, later this year.

This is early access development in real time - building the foundations for future features and spicy new content. Thanks for being a part of this journey as we look towards the future.

Patch 2.5.2 Changelog

Movement Tweaks/Bug Fixes
  • Removed vault volumes from bombsite boxes.
  • Using vault volumes no longer gives you a jump height punish.
  • Adjusted landing punish so that if a player jumps to a higher surface they will not receive the jump height punish, only the slowdown punish - meaning players can now easily jump up to consecutive higher surfaces (for example a stack of crates). However, keeping the slowdown punish after landing means that players can’t consecutively jump along flat surfaces in a row.

    The goal of this change was to increase movement freedom whilst still preventing ‘bunnyhopping’ around the map.

Map Fixes
  • Coastal - Heightened hedges by the garden area to block vision into A bombsite from garden.
  • Coastal - Fixed multiple clipping issues where players could lean through walls.

  • Coastal - Fixed ‘angle abuse’ on B bombsite’s market stall.
  • Coastal - Can no longer crouch whilst sprinting along A apartments (yellow) lip. Also smoothed out the collision along this lip when entering and exiting the windows.
  • Coastal - Fixed floor culling issue looking from seafront to allied spawn.
  • Coastal - Fixed overpowered angles created by the fountain area by allied spawn introduced in MU2 by raising surrounding walls and adding corrugated iron sheets to block abusers vision when jumping.
  • Coastal - Removed overpowered peak into blown out axis defensive building on seafront from allied spawn.
  • Coastal - Removed crates where players could get stuck on between the boxes/canopy looking into T connecter building.

  • Derailed - Fixed door gap in allied spawn.
  • Derailed - Moved misplaced barrel asset at top mid.

  • Derailed - Blocked lean clipping abuse from ticket booth into back corridor.
  • Derailed - Shooting through A bombsite double doors no longer causes hitmarkers to appear.
  • Invasion - Can no longer jump from the top of drop by allied spawn onto the high rocks and peek into mid.

  • Liberation - Removed gap in market stall that allowed players to see into B bombite from the stairs when prone.

  • Savoia - Strange lod/lightmap issues fixed.
  • Savoia - Fixed collision on door that was awkward to walk over.
  • Savoia - Blocked overpowered axis spawn peek angles within the axis spawn building.
