Warhammer: Vermintide 2 update 1.11 fixes some Winds of Magic issues on consoles

A new update for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has been rolled out for Xbox One and PS4 to address some issues on the latest Winds of Magic rollout. This update includes making sure bots don’t disappear before party is joined by actual players, and making sure some patrols don’t spawn right next to players. The team has announced that it is now working on bringing Curse of Drachenfels to consoles as well.

There are also a number of changes for characters and weapons, and all of those have been detailed in the list below.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 1.11 patch notes

Patch Notes

FIXES AND TWEAKS

  • Added bots to Quickplay Weaves.

  • Fixed an issue where the bots would be despawned way before they were replaced by joining players.

  • Added field of view slider.

  • Fixed various UI strings.

  • Various crash fixes.

  • Fix for missing localisation for one of the paintings.

  • Fixed players being placed in to matches without being offered hero selection should their chosen hero be taken, resulting in players entering matches with the wrong hero.

  • Fixed an issue where having too many enemies alive prevented completion of the ‘Cage Breaker’ challenge on Against the Grain.

  • Fixed bots taking damage when they are teleported to you/a team mate whilst mid-air.

  • Enemies, notably the Chaos Spawn and Rat Ogre (but this does apply to all enemies) will slowly nudge players who find themselves stood within the enemy unit, through expiration of a cloak ability or other such means. This fixes situations where enemy AI could not reach the player stood “inside” them.

  • Fixed battle wizard career ability fire trail going further than the player travels. Fixed fire trail not appearing if player jumps over a gap in the navmesh* (*the path on which AI can travel)

  • Fixed fire bombs not aggroing patrols if they step on the fire, now applying dots to enemies to alert them.

  • Fixed an issue where the Achivement “Ride Together, Die Together” could not be completed on Legend difficulty.

  • Changes the backstab trigger to calculate on clients instead of server

  • Updated all hidden spawners on all levels to try and combat facespawning issues.

  • Updates to enemy considerations to try and fight hyperdensity.

  • Updates to horde spawning, primarily targeting ambushes.

  • Fixes issue where the host hear the backstab indicator when bots are being backstabbed

  • Updated how sweeps are calculated for:

    • Dual Wield Swords, Kerillian

    • Spears and Shield, Kerillian

    • Spears, Kerillian2h

    • Swords, Kerillian

    This should reduce the chance of getting Phantom Sweeps when playing at low fps and/or very high attack speed.

  • Added Push/Block angle to weave melee weapons.

  • An issue caused these to not display properly as an option that could be selected.

  • Adjusted beastmen jump/climb up timers to reduce snappiness.

  • Beastmen and chaos ambush horde music now triggers earlier to give a better indication for the player when they are about to be engaged.

  • Fixed a case of super fast Gutter Runner behaviours. Seemed to be an interaction between assassin rats and edges in terrain/geometry.

  • Keep us posted!Fixed some situations where patrols spawned too close to the player.

  • Fixed an issue where Chaos Warriors sometimes could hit player that were very close behind them when performing their overhead cleave attacks.

  • Fixed an exploit with Fire Walk and Slayer’s Leap which allowed some solid objects to be passed through.

  • Bulwark’ Talent – Fixed an issue that caused the bonus damage to enemies you stagger to be applied to ranged attacks. Now only affects melee attacks.

  • Saltzpyre – Witch Hunter Captain – The Unending Hunt – Fixed an issue that caused the the ability to refund 80% cooldown rather than the intended 40%.

  • Saltzpyre – Witch Hunter Captain – The Unending Hunt – Fixed an issue where the cooldown would not be properly reduced while playing as a client.

  • Saltzpyre – Zealot – Heart of Iron – Fixed the talent from not preventing death if the damage taken is greater than the total max health of the player.

  • Bardin – Ranger Veteran – Firing Fury – Now refreshes duration of reload speed buff if triggered again.

    WEAPONS & MISC
