Opt-in Update Notes (18 Sept 2015)

We have updated the opt-in test build today with our latest changes.  Details below!

Weapon Challenges

  • Weapon challenges are now updating as you play on the Load-out screen.
  • Unlocked optics will appear as an option in the Loadout screen. Unlocked weapon skins may be selected on the My Soldier screen though there is not yet any indication which are locked or unlocked.
  • There is no in-game notification a challenge has been completed; this is in the works.

End of Match Voting

  • A voting widget has been added to the end of match AAR. Players may vote to replay the current map, play the next map in rotation or the next map after that. Ties result in the next map being played.
  • It is still in progress and has some cosmetic issues.

Misc. Fixes & Changes

  • Bleedout icons vanish when sighting up
  • Tactical indicator and your bleedout icon moved to the lower right corner (note these do not yet work with HUD scaling)
