State of Decay 2 patch 3.0 fixes bugs and other frustrating issues

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
