Patch 4.6 for the first-person action game Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is here. This massive update implements a more unified user interface on all platforms, letting developers easily apply new features to provide the best possible user experience.

Speaking of new features, Patch 4.6 brings a ton of useful additions as well. One of the most notable is the Manage Career Inventory screen. This allows you to easily manage your other careers’ abilities and inventories without manually switching to that career, thus saving time.

Another significant feature added to Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is the ability to control the melee camera movement. This gives you the power to reduce or remove the sways and movements during combat and general gameplay.

Other notable additions include bot prioritization, social wheel emotes, and a more detailed user interface. This lets you see details about HP and ammunition directly on the head-up display.
