This update addresses many quality-of-life changes, but we wanted to specifically call out some specific changes we've made based on reported community concerns:

  • Stability updates addressing various reported crashes throughout the game in certain areas, including some instances of starting a new game, while matchmaking, and more.
  • The missions "Blood Drive," "Survive Ambush," and "Lair of the Harpy" have been updated to prevent some instances of a progression blocker due to a crash.
  • Jackpot boss is now able to be defeated if no enemies are killed before entering the boss arena.
  • Map geometry has been adjusted in many areas to prevent getting stuck, escaping, unintended death, or being weird.
  • Some Vault Hunter, environments, gun, and enemy texture qualities have increased fidelity and look nicer.
  • Vault Hunter alternative skins now apply colors correctly.
  • Bloody Harvest Vault Hunter Heads have been added to Crazy Earl's Shop.
  • Joey Ultraviolet was stingy with Cartel Vault Hunter Skins. He'll drop them now.
  • The Gunner's Splash Damage Increase anointment was sometimes incorrectly adding additional shield capacity after exiting Iron Bear.
  • The Gunner's Fire Rate and Crit Damage anointment was sometimes incorrectly adding incendiary damage after exiting Iron Bear.
  • The Operative's Digi-Clone would occasionally not consume the full number of grenades with "Boom. Enhance." skill.
  • The "Defeat Ambush" objective has been updated to prevent enemies from failing to show up.
  • "Cold Case: Forgotten Answers" mission now continues after defeating the void spawn in the Vincent memory.
  • The enemy One Punch has received a pep-talk and should consistently show up after solving the TV Puzzle.
  • Killa Kam won't be attacked by other enemies anymore.
  • Lilith won't disappear in the "From the Ground Up" mission. She still wants to be talked to.
  • Addressed a reported instance where there could be two Claptraps visible during "Mysteriouslier: Ghosts of Karass Canyon." There can be only one.
