In a quest to improve War Thunder, game developer Gaijin Entertainment released a new patch that enhanced the battle pass task interface and the hull guidance for tanks.

Commander Sight Scouting

Light tanks are used extensively to maneuver through enemy territory, extinguish fires, and scout areas.

Those who have used such tanks to scout the enemy and mark them on the mini-map may find unable to do so before the new patch.

Apparently, there was an error with the new commander’s sights that prevented the scouting function to operate as intended. Fortunately, this bug has now been fixed by the new update. Continue with your scouting, soldier!

Refinements to Hull Guidance

In a previous update, developers added some changes to the hull guidance mechanics for certain tanks. These garnered some positive feedback from the community, though there is still a lot of work to do.

In the latest patch, some key improvements were added. Expect the removal of sight jitter at high pings and improved control, among other changes.

Improvements to the Task Interface

With so many challenges in the game, there are some instances where players may have overlooked some tasks. The problem is some battle pass tasks are time-sensitive, which means they must be completed on time.

Fortunately, the developers have added a small improvement where players can see expired tasks more clearly. This is done by displaying them in grey color followed by a corresponding icon. Now, players can never miss them!

Now, it is still recommended that players complete these tasks as they provide rewards which cannot be acquired anywhere else in the game.

So, to lessen the likelihood of not seeing certain challenges, players may add tasks that they deem interesting to their “Favorites” tab to help them monitor their progress.
