  • Reducing threat limit so Tanks don’t switch targets too suddenly.

  • Outcast Incendiary / Molotov:

  • Reducing tick interval, damage and duration.

  • Reset the leaderboards for Operation Dark Hours

    So still no fix for the contaminated area in constitution hall. Players are unable to climb the pipes no matter what… this includes uninstall/reinstall, start a new agent, play it on another agents server and not completing the main campaign. Literally no agent can get in after the DLC
