There was a maintenance this morning to perform the usual duties as well as deploy a number of fixes.

  • Fixed a bug where Larae Barret would remain stuck on the balcony in Lexington Event Center.
  • Fixed a bug where the Barret Named high-end armor talent would not work after a phase transition or character death. Note that the UI will not take the bonus into account as this will require a client patch.
  • Fixed a bug where Colonel Bliss’s Holster would not drop in General Assembly mission.
  • All existing High-End items below level 30 will be automatically rerolled to level 30. In the future, in the event that players would be able to acquire High-End items when they are below level 30, the item will be level 30. Equipped High-End items on character below level 30 will be automatically unequipped during the maintenance and replaced with basic started gear.
  • Fixed a bug where some players would be stuck on a black screen after watching the exit cutscene in Brooklyn.
  • Sticky Bomb PvP damage modifier has been reduced to limit the skill’s potency when used against other players. While Sticky Bomb one shots should still be possible, they should only be achievable by highly specialized characters and in specific situations.

Following the maintenance there were reports where Larae Barrett would become immune to damage after exiting the balcony. To resolve this as soon as possible, there will be a quick maintenance tomorrow.

Additionally, we are looking into a few reports of Heal Delay and your actions being locked after using skills. If you do experience either of these, please provide us with videos on the technical support forum for your platform.

Finally, we have some interesting infographics we want to share with you! We pulled some data to find out where players are dying most often in Survival. The larger the death icon, the more players have died in that area. Please note that these only display the larger concentrations of deaths.

The first image shows you where the largest concentration of deaths overall is.
