guard from switching back and forth at the edge of the targeting area,
potentially causing a misclick to instigate a nearby action (such as
vault/mantle) instead of medic.

round, which led to someone who chose the Squad Leader role for the next round

of operation markers) now reset before rounds 4, and 7.
Adjustments made to
ROE including supporting a “near ROE” distance. This fixes ROE totals so that if
the ROE is forgiven the integrity is now given 1/2 of the original penalty and
ROE is adjusted so it's only 1/2 of original damage. This corrects the near/far
determination and adds in a new rule that doubles the ROE and scoring penalty
for close ROE events (less than ~5m).
Fix for weapon
getting stuck down after sprinting vault/slide.
Updates to weapon
Changes to prevent
player from climbing ladders while holding a grenade with pin
as rally point will properly report the location to fire
More tweaks to
reduce the chances of “Gunface”.
Weapon guard will
not wait for player movement when checking for clearance if the guard was
triggered by collision with another player.
Fixed issues with
footstep sounds when moving backwards down steep inclines...such as
where incapacitated pawns were not all facing the same way on all clients.
Changed the method used to position and rotate incapacitated pawns so that all
players see the same thing. Note that different players may still see the
incapacitated player laying on different sides (e.g. One play may see the
incapacitated player laying on his left side while another may see him on the
right side). This will be addressed in a future update.
Fix to prevent swap
to a grenade from cancelling reload if there is no grenade left to swap
system to limit players from picking up a third rifle. User will be notified
that they cannot carry any more weapons.
Fixed issue where
the wrong team was given the victory if one team is eliminated during a swapping
round (4-6, maybe OT). Now the correct team earns the victory and the correct
results are displayed in the AAR when a team is eliminated or a team completes

while changing weapon modes.
Fix for bullet
penetration with very thin materials such as glass.
Tweaked DMR and
Obran MSP unscoped aim accuracy.
M249 will now jam if
you fire it without pause with an increasing probability of jam. Weapon will not
jam until 40 rounds are fired in a burst and then the chance of jam is applied
based on a rising scale up (from 1%) up until the player has fired 100 rounds
fired where jam likelihood is 25% for each round fired. Obran LMK also has the
same jam support the M249 does.
Changes to prevent
repeated fire effects at the end of the clip with quick
grenade that explode sometimes didn't kill player. Now it always does. Holding
cooked flash bangs that explode will cause a tiny bit of damage (as well as
apply the normal flash bang effects). Holding cooked smoke grenades that explode
will not hurt you.
Adjusting NME 320
grenadier mod to sight correctly.
Fix for grenades

again cook grenades).

Teamspeak 3 will now
let you select an input device via the in-game UI and the game validates the
list of available devices displayed in the settings menu to make sure they will
work with TS3 before letting you select the device (meaning if a device isn’t
listed in the settings menu it didn’t pass the TS3 device validation). Changes
were also made to allow “on the fly” device changes so you can test various
devices either while using the “test voice” button in the settings or while
attached to a server. TS3 will also validate the device specified in the
configuration file and if it is found to be invalid will revert to the system
