The final patch for Season 1 of Deep Rock Galactic has arrived. Patch 5 brought fixes for game crashes and weapon issues, among other things.

The Dreadnought Hiveguard is a boss creature that can be found on Hoxxes. That said, there was an issue where the Hiveguard won’t attack you after respawning, which stops you from completing the mission. You do not have to worry about this now because this has been resolved.

The game allows you to join a mission that is currently in progress. Although this is great, there are certain instances where the client would crash when you join late. Fortunately, this is already addressed.

As for weapon fixes, the bug that prevented Armor Breaking from working as intended on some weapons has been corrected. Furthermore, the tracers for all weapons have been readjusted. This fixed the issue where firearms would start behind the barrel.
