The latest update, only the game’s second on Xbox One, released yesterday and aims to fix a lot of problems players were having. The full changelog can be read below (via Neowin).


  • Continued performance optimizations


  • The tuning range for the general sensitivity option has been expanded
  • Weapon recoil reduced across the board (Xbox Only)
  • Team UI will now correctly display voice chat status
  • Additional Localization updates
