War Thunder: New Quality-of-Life Improvements Added in Update

Update Steam

A bunch of helpful improvements have been added in the latest patch for War Thunder. In Update, Battle Pass prizes that players cannot claim yet have a lock icon on them. A pop-up message appears when clicking on this icon which tells players the details on how to unlock the prize.

For completionists out there, a new button has been added that tracks the progress of icons that the player has not earned yet. This can be found in the icon selection menu.

Some noteworthy bug fixes have been implemented in War Thunder’s latest patch as well. For instance, the issue where two smoke grenades are shot with just a single click has been resolved. This is done by adding a 0.5-second delay between salvos.

Here are some of the other things added in Update

  • A bug has been fixed where after receiving repeated gun damage, a gunshot and reloading might look incorrect.
  • A bug has been fixed that caused smoke grenade reloading at a captured point at a higher capacity than the smoke grenade ammo is capable of.
  • A bug has been fixed that allowed launching smoke grenades in a number that is different from the number in a salvo
  • M3A3 Stuart: a bug has been fixed that led to the instant deployment of both smoke grenades at once.
  • A bug has been fixed where the radar cursor might hover outside the radar display in the interface.
  • Detection range of pulse radars in the most high-ranked fighters has been increased by 30% at low and medium altitudes.
  • Control axes of the radar designation cue now control its speed instead of position. It makes it possible to use joystick axes. For keyboard control, it is recommended to change the axis type to "absolute."
  • Saab A-21A-3: navigation bombing has been added
  • A bug has been fixed with a missing popup with the details in the protection analysis of aircraft with custom weapon setups.
  • A bug has been fixed where unavailable decals and decorations were displayed in the vehicle customization menu.
  • A bug has been fixed where in the customization menu on consoles, a button was indicated that was not assigned to the simulation of a shot.
  • A bug has been fixed that caused a sudden color shift while in battle.
  • A bug has been fixed where the water surface might be displayed differently in repeated benchmarks “Tank battle” on minimal graphic settings.

War Thunder Update is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
