War Thunder: Update Fixes Cruise Control and Smokescreen on Ground Vehicles

Update Steam

Developer Gaijin Entertainment has deployed a new set of bug fixes for War Thunder in Update

Before this update went live, there was a feature that lets you keep your ground vehicles moving in cruise control when you’re actively controlling a UAV. Even though this was implemented as a way for you to get around the map, it would sometimes misbehave, causing the ground vehicle to stop moving when it shouldn’t. In this patch, this pesky problem has now been fixed, giving you the confidence to leave your vehicle on cruise control and have it move in the right direction as intended.

Update Steam

Another major bug that was fixed in Update for War Thunder has something to do with the smokescreen. The smokescreen is invaluable in War Thunder, especially in situations where you need to hide from enemy fire. Back then, there was a bug where the enemy could still track you even when your marker had disappeared behind the thick smoke. Well, there’s nothing to worry about because it has now been resolved by Gaijin Entertainment.
