    Infantry Adjustments
    MGR-L1 Promise (New Conglomerate LMG)
    • Vertical min recoil from 0.16 to 0.15
    • Vertical max recoil from 0.4 to 0.3
    • Horizontal recoil reduction per shot from 0.025 to 0.05
    Dev Note: These changes tame some of the uncontrollability of the weapon by settling the horizontal recoil into its tightest firing pattern in half the time, and reducing some of the potential variance in first shot recoil.

    VE-H Maw (Vanu Sovereignty LMG)
    • Removed recoil growth characteristics.
    • Vertical recoil max from 0.5 to 0.35
    • Recoil angle min from 10 to 15
    • Recoil horizontal max from 0.225 to 0.195
    Dev Note: The recoil adjustments here place it more in line with the New Conglomerate's LA1 Anchor in terms of controllability, while retaining some faction distinction.

    Tank Mines
    • Tank Mines should once again detonate for MAX units.
    • Tank Mines will now only detonate on MAX units after their 4 second arming time.
    Misc. Updates and Bug Fixes
    • Maw LMG will properly swing into place when activating a reload while sprinting.
    • Vehicle Capture Points are now visible from further distances.
    • Continent “Fieldplate” sets now show their default camo in first person and have new icons.
    • NC’s Commando Beret no longer clips into female heads.
    • Adjusted the rear utility socket on the Harasser so certain items no longer float beneath the vehicle.
    • Fixed an issue with the Spiker charging too quickly, and using incorrect damage while aiming down sights.
    • Added some prop coverage west of Aurora Materials on Esamir.
    • A battery of Outfit Decals were implemented from Player Studio.
    • Up x 1
