There’s a free update for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 that will be available to all players later today. Patch 4.7 is a pretty good one because it introduces a plethora of new content, including a new area, some boons, and weapon traits.

Temple of the Shadows is the latest area that players can explore in Warhammer: Vermintide 2. The location of this place will be revealed on Holseher’s map after destroying the Shadow Locus. Players who survive the Temple of Shadows are rewarded with veteran boons upon completion.

Speaking of Boons, Patch 4.7 brings 31 new boons. That’s a whopping number, but here are some of the best ones:

  • Hukon's Sundering: After using your Career Skill your next 3 Melee Attacks launch a shockwave that damages and staggers enemies
  • Neru's Patience: Blocking enemy attacks reduces Career Skill Cooldown
  • Taal's Hunt: When you kill enemies marked as Taal's quarry, you gain 30% Power for 10 seconds
  • Valaya's Heart: Gain 5% Melee Power for each nearby ally
  • Grimnir's Mettle: Every 10 seconds your next attack grants you Temporary Health. The amount of Temporary Health gains depends on the damage inflicted
  • Hoeth's Method: Each Attack that doesn't cause a Critical Hit adds 5% Critical Chance to the next Attack. These bonuses stack, and reset after making a Critical Hit

Players can also take advantage of the new weapon traits available in this patch:

  • Vaul's Tempo: Every Critical Hit increases your Crit chance by 5% for 10 seconds. This effect can stack 10 times
  • Follow Up: Every 3 seconds Melee Headshots grant your next Attack a Critical Hit
  • Quetzl's Repulsion: Increases knockback from staggering attacks and pushes
  • Asaph's Endless Quiver: Ranged Critical Hits cost no ammunition
  • Huanchi's Fangs: Melee Attacks cause Bleed
  • Rhya's Thorns: Breaking shields sends splinters at the nearest enemies dealing damage
  • Anatha Raema's Talons: Increase Ranged Attack penetration by 1

Other than the new content, Patch 4.7 implements much-needed bug fixes, some of which can be found below:

  • Fix crash when picking careers after purchase
  • Fix crash when a player is put into the party just as the bot that is replaced is respawning
  • Fixed stamina shields flickering when swapping quickly between two melee weapons
  • Buffs in the buff tray will no longer animate their position. This is to remove visual noise when many buffs are getting added and removed
  • Buffed incendiary bomb damage closer to its previous damage iteration
  • Fixed multiple issues in the Chaos Wastes where hotjoining players could get stuck behind an invisible barrier

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
