    Thank you Epic

  3. I legit just found out about cache runs a few hours ago. I farmed like a mf (in private) for 4 hours straight. Thank god I did.
    RIP caches in frostnite. I heard players were farming then leaving in public. Way to ruin it for everyone

  4. >Leap Attack can now be used in the air and correctly interrupts basic attacks when used.

    FeelsGoodMan

    >Adjusted the timing code for automatic weapons to reduce the effect that frame rates have on fire rates.

    Fire rates no more capped by fps ?

  5. So many great things in this update, bug fixes, x-ray Llamas, small changes that the community has requested for ages (storm chest notification and bulk down tier crafting). however, this weeks challenge doesn’t sound that challenging. Hopefully the furnace is in a different position for week 5 challenge (or a new map entirely). If not, this challenge will be very, very easy compared to earlier challenges (and disappointing too)

    ​

    ALSO THE PATROL WARD HAS A PURPOSE NOW… sorta

  6. >Fixed an issue that granted players 30% building reduction instead of 20% with the perks Preplanning and Creative engineering.

    Color me exceptionally sad. Was hoping this bug would remain unnoticed until such time as Epic realized the role bonuses really need to be buffed…

  7. >Spectral Slash – Warp to the targeted enemy performing a spectral cleave, dealing heavy area damage which may stagger smaller enemies.

    Pog. Dammit, I just used all my schematic, perk ups, etc. on the last sword. Now I need to farm up again for this one
