    • Players occasionally causing disconnects when removing an attachment.

    • Gibraltar occasionally causing disconnects when pulling up his Gun Shield.

Character balance changes

Major balance changes:

  • Hit box size reductions and optimizations for Caustic, Pathfinder and Gibraltar

    • We’re better sizing hitboxes to character gear & model

    • Since these adjustments have a MAJOR impact on the game, we want to make sure there aren’t any major bugs, so we didn’t want to rush them out

    • If these adjustments prove to be insufficient, we’ll consider additional adjustments during Season 1

Minor balance changes:

  • Caustic

    • Traps – Reduced cooldown to 25 seconds from 30 seconds

    • Traps – Increased radius and proximity radius by about 10%

    • Traps – Removed a 1 second delay on the smoke dealing damage to players

  • Pathfinder

    • Insider Knowledge – Increased the number of beacons in the world to 12 from 10

  • Lifeline

    • Care Package – Removed slight chance that level 4 armor and helmets will drop

  • Wraith

    • Into The Void – Cooldown increased from 20 -> 25 seconds

  • Bangalore

    • Double Time – Reduced move speed bonus to 30% from 40%
