  • April 29th, 2013 - CU1 Patch 1.5:


    -After being deflected from hitting walls/ground/environment, you’re now unable to parry until you return to idle. An exception is made for destructible objects, such as the cage locks on Citadel or walls protecting the royal family on Darkforest.
    -You can no longer follow up with a combo if you’re struck while in release.
    -Fists and Piercing/Blunt weapons now explode heads properly.
    -Fists now use normal weapon tracers and deal appropriate hitbox damage, making them more precise to hit with and less forgiving - you can now duck and sidestep punches properly. Let the tavern brawls truly begin!
    -Further improvements to block detection, eliminating some more edge cases of attacks going through parry boxes when a player’s block was properly aimed.
    -Blocked the use of certain mildly exploitable UE3 console commands.
    -Shield toggle is now consistent between all weapons - either pressing 3 or the number of the weapon (I.E. 1 for primaries 2 for secondaries) will toggle the shield, where previously the behavior varied with some weapons.

    -Fixed being unable to sprint with throwing weapons and the sling ready to fire.
    -Fixed the missing return button from weapon select.
    -Fixed both arrow types being displayed as bodkins in weapon select.
    -Fixed being unable to throw a torch while sprinting.
