Wasteland 3 has received a new update recently that provides gameplay improvements and bug fixes across the board.

Patch fixes an issue in the Holy Detonation chamber where the computer would turn hostile. This prevents you from utilizing it, which may impede your progress, but is no longer a problem.

For the Battle of Steeltown DLC, you should now be engaged in a conversation with citizens of Steeltown after saving it from the gang raid. This, in turn, will provide you with a reward.

Balancing changes have also been implemented. All targets eliminated by your turrets and robots will now grant XP. This can help you get out of harm’s way, while still getting experience points to level up.

If you want to go to a particular area on the mini-map, you will be excited to find that you can now move quickly just by double-clicking on that spot.

In co-op mode, the issue where the game would get soft-locked if you and another person looted the same item at the exact moment has been resolved.

Patch Highlights


  • Fixed an issue where the radio call to begin the expansion did not trigger if you had previously dismissed the Morning Star radio call
  • Fixed an issue where auto-saving, while the crane was lowering onto the pressure plate in the Loading Docks, caused a progression blocker


  • Players should now get pulled into a conversation after saving Steeltown from the gang raid, giving them a reward
  • Fixed several issues in the Steeltown Exterior where certain NPCs were being drawn into combat, causing combat to softlock


  • Kills by your own deployable turrets and robots now grant XP
  • You can now double-click on the minimap to quickly move the camera to that spot
  • Fixed a money-making exploit


  • Targeting a Strike ability with the mouse will now show a different mouse cursor, making it easier to tell you’re aiming the ability
  • Fixed an issue where character models and item requirements were not updating properly when cycling through your Rangers in the inventory


  • Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes softlock when two players looted the same item at the exact same time
  • Fixed some host/guest sync issues for the final combat in Cheyenne Mountain
  • Numerous co-op fixes to minor and/or rare-occurrence issues

Wasteland 3 Patch is now available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Mac, and PC.
