  • Increased NO Killtrade distance from 10m to 20m based on community feedback.
  • Corrected aiming controller settings for the Benet Mercie Optical when using 1.5x zoom. It was using iron sights settings, it will now use optical settings like the other zoom levels.
  • Added blur around the Selbstlader 1906 Sniper’s scope when aiming.

  • Fixed issue where player was able to fire weapon while being melee-killed.

Grenade (resupply) icon:

  • Now greyed out (lowered alpha) when out of ammo.
  • Doesn’t blink anymore when out of ammo.
  • Resupply progress now shown when close to ammo crate/pouch even when player already has 1 grenade and is resupplying a second grenade (smoke).

Vehicles
