The Division Details and Releases Patch 1.7.1

By Ashley Woodcock, 3 months ago
With so much potential goodness coming in update 1.8 for Tom Clancy's The Division, including an expansion to the map, side missions, skirmishes, a new four-player horde mode, and more, the patch has received decent coverage since its original announcement. Developer Massive Entertainment has quietly released patch 1.7.1 for the game with a small list of changes to keep thinks ticking over smoothly until the release of the much bigger title update 1.8.

1.7.1

The patch list is small but comes with important fixes to the leaderboards tied into the Global Events and Dark Zone, as well as changes and fixes to the gameplay in general:

LEADERBOARDS

  • The Face Masks vanity rewards are now tied to Global Event Commendations instead of the Leaderboards. Global Event Leaderboards now reward a number of Classified Caches, the amount depending on an agent’s placement on the Global Event Leaderboards once the event ends.
  • Fixed an issue where agents would be prompted with an incorrect reward notification.
  • The first column in both Dark Zone Leaderboards and Global Event Leaderboards will now display Rank even though the text says Position.

GAMEPLAY

  • Fixed a RPM related exploit.
  • Fixed an issue where agents could experience weapons jamming with low-RPM weapons, such as shotguns and marksman rifles.
  • Fixed an issue where an agent could get desynchronized if the agent cancelled the animation of entering cover with a combat roll.
  • Fixed a desynchronization issue which could occur after an agent jumped off a high structure.
  • Fixed a desynchronization issue which could occur during corner swaps.
  • Fixed a desynchronization issue which would occur when climbing off a prop and then quickly going into cover.
  • Fixed another desynchronization issue which could occur if the agent would perform a combat roll before finishing a cover to cover move.
  • Made several improvements in order to prevent various desynchronization issues.
  • Updated the description of the Striker’s set 4p bonus to now state that the bonus will be lost when exiting combat.
Title update 1.7.1 for The Division is already live.
