A new update has been released for Hell Let Loose Update 1.022. You can find out all the details of the Game Update, Bug Fixes, improvements, and Patch Notes below.Hell Let Loose Update 1.022 is now available for download, for all platforms, including PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and PC. The file size may vary depending on the platform.

Additional Logging

In this patch, we’ll also be turning on additional logging, which we hope will help prove our theory on what is causing the loadout bug. We have identified a number of potential failure points in the stats code, and the logging we have added will verify if any of these are happening. That additional info will help us determine a fix in the near future!

New Environments

  • Basic Training
  • Additional Content Hub
  • Practice Range

Practice Range

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback on the Practice Range during the Patch 14.3 PTE, it was exceptionally useful and we are pleased that a lot of the feedback aligned with what we want to explore implementing in the future – including moving targets, the re-spawning of vehicles and helmets, renaming of garrisons, improved direction and hints, and, of course, having the ability to test each faction.

The first iteration of the Practice Range has been built within the game’s existing functionality which has meant that some of the above suggestions are not something we can introduce just yet, without risking adaptive changes inadvertently affecting live play.

The Practice Range was designed to be a way for players to test out the things they wouldn’t normally be able to do in a live game, rather than act as a tutorial environment. There is much work to be done to help onboard new players, and a tutorial is certainly something we would like to explore in the future.

For Patch 14.3, we have been able to begin actioning some of your feedback, including:

  • Extending the shooting range to 500m – although you won’t be able to traverse this additional distance, the extension of the shooting range means players wanting to test out the Sniper role will have the ability to practice landing shots on targets up to 500m away.
  • Additional obstacles and irregular terrain in the driving range – while there were some great ideas in the feedback from the PTE, we’ve been able to action a few of them by ensuring players have the opportunity to navigate driving past buildings, trenches, and slight inclines/declines in the terrain.
  • Player-placed garrison spawning – players will now be able to build a garrison within the Building Yard, and spawn in on it.
  • Added the US Half-track – which can also be used as a way to test redeploying on.
  • Scarecrow target head shots – headshot SFX will now play when hitting the head, not just the helmet

Optimisation

  • Performance improvements to a range of maps
  • Some LOD fixes to address transition issues

General Improvements

  • Improved micro-stutters
  • [Increased] Commander Level Requirement from 10 to 30
  • [Added] [PC] Additional ultrawide screen support

We are continuing to work on optimising ultrawide support, and are working on resolving the following issues for a future patch:

  • Some UI and menus leave blank spaces on either side of the screen when playing on an ultrawide display
  • Character previews in the Select Your Role menu may appear too large when playing in ultrawide
  • The tank commander’s periscope overlay is scaled up in ultrawide resolutions, resulting in a significantly larger field of view
  • Seams can be seen at the top and bottom of the screen when in the gunner’s seat of the Stuart light tank on an ultrawide display
  • Seams can be seen at the top and bottom of the screen when in the gunner’s seat of the BA-10 recon vehicle on an ultrawide display
  • Black bars are visible on the left and right sides of the screen in ultrawide when gunning the Panzer IV medium tank

British Forces Improvements

  • [Fixed] British weapons have increased sway when ADSing

While most weapons have now been tackled, the P14 and No.4 Mk1 are still in need of improvements. For more information on what new weapons will be introduced as part of the British forces rework, please click here.

  • [Fixed] British recon tank will pull to the last turned direction when driving straight
  • [Fixed] British Lewis Gun MG shots appear to be slightly off-centre from sights
  • [Fixed] Zeroed British Weapon Sights
  • [Fixed] All Lee-Enfield variants have a stuttering animation and are misaligned while reloading from a TPP
  • [Fixed] Ping is off-centre when using the British binoculars
  • [Fixed] Sten gun dropping off at 100m

Removed

  • Legacy game analytics potentially causing performance issues

Player Locomotion

  • [Fixed] Players can dive to prone by going in the prone position while jumping

This bug allowed players to essentially glitch into the prone position while jumping- and has previously been used as both a way to get out of sticky situations, as well as access normally inaccessible areas, such as rooftops and other platforms to gain an unfair advantage on the battlefield.

We understand that some players have provided feedback regarding the removal of this unintended bug, both during the Patch 14.3 PTE and since, as well as understand that while prone jumping can give players an unfair advantage, it could also be used to traverse the vaulting system when it fails, and add a degree of verticality into their playstyle.

However, with it’s removal in Patch 14.3, we have started the process of laying the ground work that, together with your feedback, will support bringing back a revised version of the Dive to Prone functionality. As part of that work, we have fixed prone jumping – to prevent certain conflicts with the actions, ensuring there are no unintended exploits or behaviours when using it.

We’re still making some final tuning adjustments to the new version, and have had to make sure that Dive to Prone couldn’t be used in mid-air, and have also made adjustments to the cooldown for changing stance too soon after diving, added more friction to reduce the slide distance, as well as limited direction change mid-dive, plus introduced a floor-impact shake. We’ll bring you all the details about these changes in a future developer briefing!

Improvements to the vaulting system are also underway to make it more responsive, which includes ensuring vaulting and climbing operate consistently in accordance with height and distance parameters.

This should mean that vault will be used only for vaulting over things, and climb will only be used to climb onto things, and the system should no longer play the wrong animations causing players to glitch and get stuck, particularly when vaulting through windows.

We’re also carrying out work to make sure vaulting won’t trigger in error for any obstacle below a certain height. Improvements to the third-person vaulting animations has also been carried out across both code and animation to address certain issues.

We hear your feedback, and are making progress with these locomotion improvements, but first want to make sure we remove any issues that can cause conflicts with Dive to Prone.

You’ll soon be able to get hands on with the new Dive to Prone, plus improved vaulting, in a PTE session, so please keep an eye out on future dev briefs and in the #telegrams channel on Discord!

El Alamein

  • [Fixed] Tessellation issues are present in multiple sectors while ADSing

The LOD on the landscape changes based on the amount of screen space it takes up, and when we ADS, the weapon takes up a big part of the screen space meaning the landscape takes up less. This can sometimes trigger the LOD to change and create a landscape-warping effect.

To fix this, we need to tune the minimum screen value to a point where we can ADS without triggering the LOD. Unfortunately, a side effect of this change involves adding more triangles to the landscape.Sometimes, we may need to do this manually, rather than let Unreal choose where we tessellate, and set it up on the landscape shader where we only tessellate within a set distance from the player.This can then be used to gradually reduce the amount of tessellation, and are able to only add this detail where it is needed around the player.
