War Thunder: Pesky Destructible Objects Providing Unintended Cover Now Resolved in Update

Update Steam

Gaijin Entertainment deployed a new patch for its vehicular combat MMO War Thunder recently. Update implemented a lot of much-needed bug fixes, particularly to some objects that were never intended to provide cover.

The company has made War Thunder in a way that it almost simulates real-world warfare using different vehicles and aircraft. To improve realism, certain things can be destroyed using missiles and other explosives.

Before this patch went live, some destructible objects like fences and pillars provided players with some cover, which was never their intended function. The bug that caused this issue to occur has been squashed in Update

Update Steam

Another major issue that was addressed concerns ship customization. More specifically, the problem where changing crew slots causes the ship's personalized camouflage settings to be undone has been resolved.
