Known issues

  • AMD FX users will have degraded performance due to issues with the audio system. We’re still investigating possible solutions, but here’s a workaround

    • 1. Open following file:

      C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\WireGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Engine.ini

      If the file doesn’t exist, create it.
      2. Add following lines at the end:
      [/script/engine.audiosettings] bDisableMasterEQ=True
      [Audio] bDisableMasterEQ=True

  • Combat Record / Personal statistics do currently not display the scores correctly

  • Personal awards are not granted correctly

  • Damage radius of field cannons will sometimes cause players to not be killed immediately

  • Some surfaces do not show impact effects. Damage should still apply

  • No. 20 Rifle Grenade uses placeholder sounds

  • Switching Audio quality in the options menu will cause a crash when connected to a server or when playing on the Shooting Range. Please restart the game to prevent that from happening.

  • VOIP widget role icon is not being displayed correctly

  • Infantry section members will see a SL ability icon in the bottom left screen

  • M1895 “Potato Digger” is called M1985 “Potato Digger”

  • Shooting Range for CEF vs GER loads HHF vs GER instead

  • Ansoncourt underground bunkers have lighting issues

  • Deploying LMG bipods on walls while prone can lead to players teleporting under the map
