Changelog:

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue causing degreesSlow/degreesFast vehicle handling variables to be overridden by hard-coded values. (There shouldn’t be any issues caused by fixing this as script values have been adjusted to match)
  • RPG now uses a different 3rd person reload animation as there was no RPG animation available. (Uses HL2’s AR2 reload as it is the closest visual fit)
  • Fixed an issue with accuracy upgrade not using the script value when adjusting weapon base spread. (It was hard-coded to 25%, this will now use “AccuracyUpgradeModifier” script variable)
    • For most weapons this will be a small nerf to accuracy but as always any issues identified will be addressed in future updates.
