UI and UX Changes

Regiments

  • Regiments are now frozen to ensure a smooth transition over to the new Clan-based system, coming later this year.
  • Players will now only be able to view their Regiment Roster and inspect other Players.
  • Players will no longer be able to create, manage, switch or invite others, use Regiment Tags, or receive Happy Hour rewards.

Loot Cards

  • The visual style of all loot cards has been updated.
  • In addition to this change, added information about the fire type of a Weapon to each loot card.
  • This will allow Players to observe if a Weapon is automatic, semi-automatic, or burst before committing to it, without having to fire test shots or lose their next engagement.

Accessibility

Killfeed (Time On Screen)

  • Added an option under the Accessibility menu to customize the amount of time that messages in the Killfeed stay on screen. This option is intended to support Hard of Vision, Hard of Hearing, and Cognitive Overload accessibility.
  • The setting has 5 options:
    Off: Never show updates
    Default: Updates show for 10 seconds
    Medium: Updates show for 20 seconds
    Long: Updates show for 30 seconds
    Extended: Updates show for 60 seconds
    Note: This will not affect the duration of disconnect notifications.

Mono Audio

  • Added an option under the Audio menu to adjust the degree to which the Mono Audio is applied when enabled.
  • The setting is adjusted via a slider:
    A higher value merges sounds and sends them through left and right speakers in similar proportions.
    A lower value reduces the applied effect and preserves directional sound.

New Operators

  • Alex Mason: NATO (Launch) - available at Tier 0 in the Season Six Battle Pass with an additional Ultra-Rarity Operator Skin unlocked at Tier 100.
