Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord Patch Notes 1.5.2
- Fixed an issue with death cam in battles.
Previous Beta Hotfixes:
- Fixed a problem with animation sampling.
- Fixed a bug that caused the player to get captured, lose all troops and companions despite a successful battle.
- Both player and the bandit camp boss were forced to start the duel or battle without a wielded weapon. Now the boss wields the weapon when the dialogue is over and the player holds his weapon in his hands if he had already had one.
- Removed the dismounting feature from spear blade parts. Dismounting can now only be applied with spear guard pieces.
- Various problems with companion and lord deaths were resolved. (Parties that lost their party leader in special circumstances should not become stuck. Clan party creation & clan role assignment should not be locked if a companion party leader dies. A number of crashes were handled.) This fix does not resolve the issue in already broken save games.
- Fixed a crash that occurred if the player failed at romance bartering.
- Minor improvement in autosave timings.
- Fixed a bug that caused new notables to not spawn in some situations.

- Fixed a crash that occurred if the player kingdom makes peace during a battle simulation.
- Players will no longer create caravans for the Lord Needs a Tutor quest NPC.
- Fixed the issue of multiplayer player avatars looking older than their own setting.
- Fixed a bug that threw the player out if the player was disguised in an enemy town and the player’s clan declared war/peace with another faction.
