Monster Hunter: World has a new patch on PS4 and Xbox One that fixes a few minor bugs.

The update shows up as 1.6 for Monster Hunter World players on PS4, and on Xbox One. It only comes with a couple of fixes for smaller issues.

The first fixes a problem that occurred when hunters had 31 or more Slashberries in their item pouch when last week’s 1.05 update rolled around. The 1.05 update reduced the maximum number of Slashberries that can be carried in an item pouch to 30, hence the issue.

Today’s update will automatically move any Slashberries over 30 to the item box.

The patch also further improved squad connectivity. In some cases, uninvited non-squad players were able to join a squad’s online session. Other times, squad members couldn’t join online sessions started by one of their members. This patch fixes both of these.

On Xbox One, the update “readjusted the search algorithm when searching for another player’s session to join.” Capcom previously said that it’s working on eliminating all matchmaking problems on Xbox One, which have been noticeably spotty compared to PS4.
