Insurgency: Sandstorm 1.7 Hotfix 5 Patch Notes

You can find the patch notes below:

We've released a hotfix for update 1.7 that addresses the following issues:

  • Fixed an issue causing maps to load in with no class or faction options until players leave and rejoin the match
  • Further reduced occurrences of having floating magazines after resupply and added additional logging to catch more edge cases causing this issue

Known Issues

  • When scavenging ammunition from certain weapons with a skin, the skinned magazine will only display in third-person and not in first-person
  • A new player’s default cosmetics that they see on start up may sometimes not be of a consistent color scheme. Please go down to supply and bitch to whoever is on duty until they give you the right gear.
  • When using the Picture-in-picture Scope Setting, some optics may not display correctly
  • While aiming down sights with some illuminated optics will cause the crosshair to stutter when the weapon is moved
  • Some hints that reference key bindings are showing as in the loading screen dialogue
  • There are some cosmetic clipping issues that are only visible when players join a round that is already in progress
  • The Commander voice over for requesting an observer while attempting to use Binoculars away from an Observer is not always playing properly
  • AKM underbarrel grenade launcher’s reload animations are missing the shells
  • Floating weapons and equipment can sometimes be seen after resupplying which could be supernaturally related (have called Epic’s Bustin’ Division [EBD])
  • Purchased cosmetics are not being properly sorted at the top of the list
  • The Laser Sight is incorrectly showing the ‘New’ yellow dot indicator (intended for new night equipment) until it has been selected at least once
  • Replays recorded at night will be shown in the day
  • There is an exploitable issue with certain magazines which allows them to reload quicker than they should
  • Suicide bombers exploding can sometimes cause a crash to desktop
  • Scavenging a magazine from an AKM, Honey Badger, or Mk 14 EBR with a weapon skin will give the player an unskinned magazine in first person
