Patch 1.0.1.89542

QuoteKITS

    Doc:
        The "Trauma Station" Ability now regains energy when any player picks up an Aid Kit, instead of only granting energy to the specific Doc player that picks it up. If there is more than one Doc in the team, the energy is split between them.
        The "Trauma Station" Ability Replacers (Painkiller Station and Suppression Station) can now be placed down even when out of energy.
        Change to the HUD so that it now displays a notification showing the amount of energy replenished when picking up an Aid Kit, making it easier to tell when the "Trauma Station" Ability has been recharged.

PERKS

    The Doc's "Field Medic" Perk and its related Perks have had their range increased to 7m (previously 6m.)
    The Demolisher's "Rampage" Perk should now work correctly with flamethrowers.
    The Demolisher's "Assault & Battery" Perk now only grants up to 50% cooldown reduction (previously 100%.) This Perk has also had its tooltip updated to reflect this change.

WEAPONS

    Fixed an issue with Special Ammo Consumables where they could be erroneously applied to the N79 EVA Laser Pistol. Attempting to do so will now display a message informing you that Special Ammo is not available for this weapon.

CHALLENGE CARDS

    The "Stuck Magazines" Challenge Card should no longer affect AI companions.
    The "Tactical Cam" Challenge Card should now correctly affect all players in a party.

ENVIRONMENT

    Fixed a number of places in the game where players could get stuck in the world geometry.
    Fixed a number of places in the game where players could traverse, but enemies could not reach them.

UI

    Fixed a situation where the Doc's UI for the "Trauma Station" Ability's energy bar could display an inaccurate value.

GENERAL

    Fixed a situation where kills with flamethrowers would not be counted towards the progress of a Tactical Opportunity.
    Intel items should now be able to be properly pinged with the correct message.
    Fixed a number of situations where more players than intended were able to group up.

PATCH 1.0.5.107477

QuoteRuptured Cistern

We know you've been busy thinning the hordes of Xenomorphs in the Cistern, Marines. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed! If you got the limited rewards, you've earned 'em! If you haven't, sadly, your time to collect is over. But that doesn't mean game over. Starting today, the limited time rewards from the Winter Event have been replaced with new permanent rewards. You'll want to boot up and hit the Cisterns again to look for those all new weapon colors, emotes, and a new decal.

Some weapons, attachments, and rewards have been adjusted, and you'll notice those Horde Mode rewards menus are much easier to read.

Like you, we've also been busy killing bugs. Read on for the full report of everything in this patch, and then get back to business, jarheads!
BUG FIXES

 
REWARDS

In addition to the below changes to Cosmetic rewards, all Game Mode reward tables have been updated so that they share the same pool of non-cosmetic rewards. This means that all Perks and Attachments that were previously only available in some modes are now available in all modes. All cosmetic rewards are still only available from their unique Game Mode.

The following changes have been made to rewards in the following Game Modes:

    Reworked the Horde Mode reward previews to better clarify possible rewards for each set of 10 waves.
    Horde Mode - Ruptured Cistern: The Winter Event limited rewards have been removed from the Ruptured Cistern Horde Mode (Winter Constellations, Deep Freeze, Stay Frosty, Xeno's Greetings, Let It Snow, Holly Berries, Antarctica Traffic Control, Icicles)
     

The following rewards have been added to the Ruptured Cistern Horde Mode:

THREE (3) NEW EMOTES - (Intense+)

    Respect
    Elaborate Bow
    Fist Pump High
     

THREE (3) NEW WEAPON COLORS  - (Extreme+)

    Warped Mesh Assassin
    Warped Mesh Ranger
    Warped Mesh Freelancer
     

ONE (1) NEW DECAL - (Insane)

    Peace Through Superior Firepower
     

Game Mode Reward Changes:

    All Modes now share the same reward pool of Attachments and Perks. Previously, some Attachments were only available from Point Defense, some Attachments were only available from Restock Turrets, and some Perks were only available from Likasi Tower. All of these have been pooled together now. All modes now grant access to first tier of Attachment/Perk rewards when completed on Casual or Standard difficulties, unlock access to the second tier of Attachment/Perk rewards when completed on Intense difficulty, unlock access to an additional Universal Perk  on Extreme, and unlock access to the final Universal Perk on Insane difficulty.
    Point Defense Cosmetic Rewards: Rewards that previously only dropped in a specific difficulty tier, will now also drop in higher difficulty tiers. For example, if a reward used to be earned by beating Point Defense on Intense (and only Intense), it will now have a chance to drop in Extreme and Insane difficulties if the reward has not been previously granted.
    Horde Mode - Likasi Tower Cosmetic Rewards: Now has two (2) additional rewards (Weapon Check emote on any difficulty, and Corpsman Up decal on Intense+ difficulties).If you beat a higher difficulty, and haven't received previous tier cosmetic rewards, those can be earned if you have already been granted the rewards associated with the higher difficulty tier.
    Restock Turrets - Tower Cosmetic Rewards: Now has two (2) additional Decals (Little Buddy, Substantial Value) available as rewards at Extreme+ difficulties. Additionally, if you are playing on a higher difficulty and win, and haven't unlocked previous tier cosmetic rewards, those can be earned if you have already received the current tier cosmetic rewards.
     

Additional Hardcore Game Mode Reward Changes:

    Hardcore: Point Defense - Quake: Attachment and Perk rewards that previously only dropped with a certain number of Points remaining active, will now also drop if additional Points remain active. For example, if an Attachment or Perk reward used to be earned by beating Point Defense in Hardcore Mode, with only 1 Point standing (and only 1 Point), it will now also have a chance to drop with 2 or all 3 points standing. Cosmetic rewards are only accessible if all 3 points remain active .
    Hardcore: Horde Mode - Likasi Tower: Attachment and Perk rewards that previously only dropped at a specific wave threshold, will now also drop if additional wave thresholds are met.  For example, if an Attachment or Perk reward used to be earned by successfully completing 10 waves (and only 10 waves) it will now also have a chance to drop at wave 20+, and Attachment or Perk rewards that used to be earned by successfully completing 20 waves ( and only 20 waves) now also have a chance to drop at wave 30+, and so on. Cosmetic rewards now also drop with similar behavior.
