A few months ago, State of Decay 2 launched to mixed reviews around the world. The game was praised for its deep mechanics, but the fact that it exhibited frame rate issues even on Xbox One X and suffered from numerous glitches was a cause for concern. Luckily, the developer just released another patch which brings some long-awaited changes.
Patch 3.0 features many significant quality-of-life improvements and a host of bug fixes that solve confusing or frustrating issues. You can read about the major tweaks below.
- Vehicles will now be teleported by the "Stuck?" radio command.
- Players can now use the "Workshop" facility to repair or salvage equipped weapons.
- Salvaged weapons now return their ammo to your "Supply Locker".
- Players will now see a banner at the top-center of screen when a community member dies.
- Players can now drop equipped weapons.
- The "Mysterious Wandering Trader" now appears more reliably.
- When you abandon an outpost, you'll be refunded only 60 percent of the original influence cost.
- Proximity mines are no longer triggered by players or friends.
- Players can no longer consume multiple energy drinks at once and waste them.
- Grenades no longer bounce off large zombies.
- Players are no longer teleported every time the host changes characters.
