After a relatively smooth Year 4 launch, Ubisoft released the Y4S1.2 patch notes earlier today. The patch will go live April 4 on PC with no ETA for console players, according to the post.
Ubisoft has come up with a fix for two of Mozzie’s Pests being able to hack the same drone, and the hacked drones losing signal within the map, which is not how the Pests are supposed to operate. Normally, Pests should only lose signal when taken outside the interior of the map into attacker territory. Ubisoft also gave a disclaimer with this specific fix by informing players that it would take time to fix the signal loss completely because each spot of lost signal would have to be individually fixed.
Gridlock is also seeing some needed changes. The patch notes indicate that Ubisoft has fixed some issues with the Trax Stingers. The biggest fix involves a planted diffuser no longer inadvertently avoiding being detected by defenders when planted near Trax Stingers. While this may not seem like the biggest deal, we’re sure quite a few matches could have gone differently for players had this bug not slipped past devs the first time around. The Trax Stingers will see further fixes in how they deploy. Ubisoft has tweaked the Trax Stingers so they no longer deploy inside of or pass through objects.
Outback holds the most substantial list of fixes. Tweaks range from clipping issues and holes in the map to players no longer being able to sneakily plant a diffuser atop the tent in the Gear Store site. There are bound to
With the bulk of the notes focusing on the new ops and their map, Ubisoft has also addressed some issues with cosmetic items. The cosmetic issues are not game-breaking by any means, but we could see how they would definitely cause players some frustration, especially in the case of Elite skins not loading properly. Again, these are minor issues that only eagle-eyed fans will catch or care to report.
The Y4S1.2 patch goes live April 4 on PC. Console players will have to wait until the Y4S1.3 patch, which has no release date. A typical factor console players should consider when wondering when they will see fixes on their end is that Ubisoft must gain approval from Xbox and PS4 before releasing any patches on the consoles. The wait is never pretty, but it’s a lot easier to manage when we keep the previous information in mind. Let’s all breath and repeat the words, “it isn’t Operation Health, it isn’t Operation Health.”
