You may have noticed that we've been making consistent updates to the Test Server all week. We've been working on an update that is entirely focused on quality of life bug fixes, and we need your help testing them out! Please let us know if you encounter any of these issues while on the Test Server so that we can iron out any remaining edge cases. The Test Server will be open for business today from 12PM to 2PM PT, and the devs will be online and ready to be hunted down! Plus, join us for a special early edition of Community Outbreak
at 12:30PM PT where we'll be hosting a Test Server Smash.
Door desync: We identified and fixed a few issues that could cause doors to appear open for one player but closed for another. We will evaluate if these fixes represent a comprehensive solution, or if players on the Test Server continue to encounter the issue.
Vehicle passenger desync: There was a similar desync issue where a player could be in a vehicle but appear out of the vehicle to an onlooker. We've deployed a potential solution and will continue to investigate if there are any other fixes that need to be made.
There was an issue where interrupting a gun reload at the beginning of the animation could cause the gun to fire a ghost bullet and reload again. We've submited another potential fix as well as set up some additional logging to help collect more data when reloads fail. Definitely let us know if you encounter a reload issue on Test!
Players who die immediately before being struck by a vehicle should no longer cause that vehicle to explode. The team is working on updating The Arena with a number of object and collision fixes to further reduce unexpected vehicle explosions; however, that won't be ready for this Test build (or the next Live update).
We take exploits very seriously and jump on them as quickly as we can. Thank you to everyone who has sent videos and repro information for these - it's very, very helpful and allows us to diagnose and respond faster. If you're familiar with these, please go ahead and try to do them on Test and send us your feedback!
