Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop May 1 Update Live, Patch Notes Here

Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop May 1 Update Steam/Reactive Drop Team

Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop's latest patch went live a few hours ago and is necessary for players who want to continue playing the game. The May 1 update doesn't bring any new content but it delivers several bug fixes and general improvements.

Stationary marines won't detect as moving and menders don't heal biomass on fire anymore. Heroes of the Interstellar Armed Forces medals now feature an updated design but it doesn't grant multiple medals per season if the player is in the top 100 or 20.

The complete changelog is mentioned below.

  • Accident 32: Confined Facility and J5 Connector: Reduced networking overhead from minecarts.
  • Tilarus-5: Yanaurus Mine: Fixed scripted doors not visually falling.
  • v45 Electric Charged Armor: Improved visibility of this gear. No longer disappears immediately when using last charge (similar to Assault Jets).
  • AVK-36 Marksman Rifle: Fixed zooming causing auto-reload to become disabled.
  • PS50 Bulldog: Fixed this weapon using visual effects meant for dual weapons.
  • Menders no longer heal biomass when it is on fire.
  • Fixed a crash when starting a mission without a key bound to "use offhand item."
  • Fixed medals not appearing in lobbies hosted on dedicated servers.
  • Weapons with aiming improved by crouching now work on moving platforms. Fixed stationary marines being detected as moving due to rounding errors.
  • Fixed lighting issues with marine gear in areas with complex shadows.
  • The 8th marine is no longer hidden on the HUD for certain values of asw_hud_scale.
  • Fixed marine bots aiming throwable items at the player's crosshair even if it had moved since the command was given.
  • Uber drones now use the model set for them in Hammer.
  • Improved gib positioning for marines and sentries.
  • Heroes of the Interstellar Armed Forces medals, starting at the end of this month (season 11), will use an updated design. You will no longer receive multiple medals per season if you are in the top 100 or top 20.
