Wasteland 3: Hotfix 1.6.1 Implements Some Needed Tweaks and Fixes

Developer inXile Entertainment has released Hotfix 1.6.1 for Wasteland 3. This is an update to the game’s final DLC, Cult of the Holy Detonation, so most of the tweaks and fixes revolve around the new content.

Having said that, there are some nice changes in Hotfix 1.6.1. For example, the developers agree that the cryo landmine located at the Cheyenne Mountain entrance was kind of a cheap shot. This meant that those who wanted to interact with a nearby chest would die almost instantly. So, they changed it to make it easier to avoid.

Aside from that, Nuke Grenades will now deal explosive damage, which makes them more potent than before.

For bug fixes, the devs have addressed an exploit affecting the Surge Blaster where using it to stun a particular foe in the final battle could cause all other enemies to stop spawning. This may seem like a strategy that people would use often, but this is no longer possible after applying the hotfix.

Furthermore, folks at inXile Entertainment have fixed an issue that may cause the game to freeze when another person leaves the session unexpectedly in co-op play.

Patch Highlights

Research Level
  • Adjusted the pacing of the Particle Accelerator combat in the following ways:
    • Increased the armor of the Particle Cannons.
    • Reduced the max enemies that can be on the battlefield at one time while increasing the spawn rate of enemies to improve pacing.
Security Level
  • Improvements have been made to Sister Strontium. She’ll pull you in from a more reasonable distance, and the guard there will do a better job of detecting you if called.
The Holy Detonation
  • Resolved an issue where Cultists would occasionally spawn in spaces they couldn’t move out of
  • We’ve increased the movement speed of the final boss to make that encounter a bit faster-paced
  • The fog of war on one of the random World Map Cultist encounters will now reveal the map properly
  • [Controller] Fixed a bug where an invisible switch was accidentally accessible to a player while using a gamepad in the Loading Docks
  • [Consoles] We resolved an issue that could cause a player’s game to freeze when the partner left the game unexpectedly
  • We resolved an issue that was preventing the guest player from creating the Flesh Prince in the Cheyenne Mountain secret lab. Sounds harmless enough

Wasteland 3 Hotfix 1.6.1 is now available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
