[XB1] Vermintide 2 - Update #15

Heroes!

Welcome to Update #15! Please find below the patch notes for this update, which are pretty long and beastly.

Why is the download so large, you ask? With the release of Update #15 (a patch in preparation for Winds of Magic) we made the decision to remaster the game. Whilst this requires one hefty download upon updating to the latest version, it comes with it some benefits which include both faster load times when playing, as well as a smaller overall file size on your console.

Now on to the notes.

New Gameplay Considerations / Adjustments

  • Introducing stagger damage bonus, damage vs staggered enemies will increase with stacking staggers.
    This scales from 1x bonus (no stagger), 1.2x bonus (1 level of stagger) up to 1.4x (for 2 stagger levels) bonus damage:

Meaning: You’ll do between 1 and 1.4 times your damage depending on number of staggers stacked on an enemy. Effectively, it will take more hits to kill unstaggered enemies while less hits for staggered ones, compared to current Live balance.

  • Pushes on unstaggered enemies will have a higher heavy stagger threshold - meaning that pushes should keep enemies a bit closer for easy follow-up hits across the board.

All available difficulties use the same scale and settings: 0%, 20% or 40% damage increase per stagger count by default. Stagger count is how many times an enemy have been staggered in suscession (hit once for 1, hit again during that stagger for 2, further hits cap out at 2).

Pushes and heavy tank attacks (2h hammer heavies for instance) will put stagger count to 2 on first hit cause they’re much heavier.

Stagger is any reaction that interrupts an attack (which is every single attack on any weapon against horde enemies or Clan rats/Gors, only elites and since last week Marauders have a level of stagger reduction and resistance that makes them ignore a hit).

There are anyways three default animation cathegories of stagger;

  • Light: a flinch in place (fencing sword vs Clan rat),
  • Medium: a stepback (sword vs Clan rat,
  • Heavy: a throw and fall over (big hammer vs face of Clan rat)

We also made a slight slight change so that pushes against unstaggered enemies in particular and staggers in general will favour Medium stagger (raising the threshold for heavy staggers), not displacing enemies so badly and help set them up for further hits.

Further, the talent choices introduced towards the stagger damage dynamic have been tweaked to allow better control of how players interact with the mechanic. Smiter (a flat ”count everything as stagger count 1, or flat 20% dmg bonus” on first target) and Assassain (a nice ”count headshots and crits as full stagger count, or 40% dmg bonus) gives and option to bypass the system and hit breakpoints but with limitations or skill requirements. Both Bulwark (add an extra 10% dmg taken buff to all enemies staggered by you for 2 seconds ontop of any stagger-damage bonuses) and Mainstay (add 0%, 40% or 60% dmg per stagger count instead) had their effects increased for those who like to play towards the mechanic.

Ranged attacks use the stagger damage and get bonuses against staggered targets But count all targets as stagger count 1, or 20% extra damage (basically all ranged attacks have the Smiter talent, but for all targets hit). This is to align them with breakpoints.

  • Dodge Windows and Durations have been adjusted.
  • Dodge windows are 0.25 for normal attacks, 0.75 for running attacks for all difficulties
  • Dodge window duration are 0.5 for normal attacks, 0.75 for running attacks for all difficulties
  • Enemies will now continue moving straight when dodged meaning backwards dodging is less kite-friendly.

All difficulties have the same dodge settings to ensure learnability and provide a good balance between chaotic gameplay with client lag and requiring skilled timing and choice of defence. Final setting after Beta rounds is 0.5s dodge extension (delay for enemies to start tracking after you end a dodge move) across all difficulties.

  • Trimmed enemy turnaround and timings across the board.
  • Stagger, blocked and attack turnaround scale with difficulty and have been tuned to allow more aggressive enemies according to difficulty choice.
  • Attack intensity overhaul and scale.
  • Number of attacks targeting any single player at any given time have been overhauled with tuned scaling over difficulties and interactions between different types of attacks.
  • Horde waiting slots position and behaviour changes.
  • Overhauled behviour of waiting positions and slot fill for different types of hordes to better control hyper density situations and horde density scaled across difficulties.

General Tweaks

  • Terror Events now scale with difficulty.
  • Training dummies:
    • Unarmored dummy now counts as Chaos, Armored dummy counts as skaven.
    • Dummies now work vs stagger talents and procs."
  • Removed stagger-damage bonuses from dots (burn/bleed/poison) since it was silly. You would actually damage less against enemies thrown to the ground.
  • Increased champion and legend health values by 10% across the board. Slightly reduced health for cata horde (from 4.6 to 4.2) and default (from 4.6 to 4.5). Why? Cause talent changes to match up breakpoints with 10% power and to balance breakpoints on cata better. Cata is positioned at a 20-30% health increase for non-elite and 80% increase for elites compared to Legend at the moment. Detailed health, damage and breakpoint values is available separately.
  • Environmental hazards can now damage and/or stagger enemies
  • Made adjustments to help mitigate the problem with hotjoining players spawning way back due to slow loading.

There’s now a hidden timer which starts as soon as one player enters the bubble. When the “hidden timer” is done, another “visible” timer will begin. During this timer a system message will be displayed every X seconds telling the player “Mission will end in X seconds.”. When both timers are done, the mission will end and all players outside the bubble will be counted as dead, and if they’re carrying any tomes and/or grimoires they will not be included in the run. If all players step out of the bubble the timers will reset and start once any player step inside the bubble again.

  • Updated rarites of hats so that we have a more even distribution of rarities across all careers.
  • Adjusted the hitbox of sorcerors in order to make headshotting more consistent.
  • Enemies no longer get staggered when blocking projectiles.
  • Smiter talents will now always have a min stagger value of 1 (adding 20% to final damage for the single, first target hit). This means that for hitting an enemy with stagger value 0, 1 and 2 the damage bonus output will be 20%, 20% and 40%. Changed from a 0.5 stagger value bonus added ontop of any naturally occuring stagger value.
  • Assassain talent gets and increase of stagger value where headshot grants a 2 + half normal bonus. (used to be 1 + half normal bonus). This means that headshots are even more powerful and that they can now go above the max bonus, since a stager value of 0,1 and 2 would mean 40%, 50% and 60% damage bonus upon headshots.

(the talent choices introduced towards the stagger damage dynamic have been tweaked to allow better control of how players interact with the mechanic. Smiter (a flat ”count everything as stagger count 1, or flat 20% dmg bonus” on first target) and Assassain (a nice ”count headshots and crits as full stagger count, or 40% dmg bonus) gives and option to bypass the system and hit breakpoints but with limitations or skill requirements. Both Bulwark (add an extra 10% dmg taken buff to all enemies staggered by you for 2 seconds ontop of any stagger-damage bonuses) and Mainstay ( add 0%, 40% or 60% dmg per stagger count instead) had their effects increased for those who like to play towards the mechanic)

  • Added first person camera movement that was missing on the heavy attacks with the shield weapons (sword, axe and hammer).
  • Added new third person attack animations for Kurber’s shield weapons so he won’t just play the shield bash for all heavy attacks.
  • Tweaked third person reload animations for the repeating handgun.
  • Tweaked temporary health granted from talents related to staggering enemies. Maximum of 5 enemies hit.
  • Reduced temporary health granted from talents related to cleaving through multiple enemies.
  • Power vs Faction and Power vs Armor type will now stack by adding to each other rather than mutliply one after the other. (effectively changing a +10% with +20% into a +30% instead of +32%)
  • Fixed an issue where hits from Foot Knight’s “Valiant Charge” sometimes didn’t register, especially on inclines or declines.
  • Slayer Leap has been reworked to prevent as many out of bounds issues as possible, and to make it more impactful and less disorienting. Aiming the targeting reticule of the Slayer’s Leap Career Skill close enough to yourself will now result in an AoE that does the same effect as the landing would have done, except no movement takes place.
  • Changed the targeting functionality for Waystalker’s Trueflight Volley to never remove the target (unless it dies). This should solve some issues where these projectiles veers off from the intended target
  • Handmaiden’s “bleed” during her active ability is now available as a talent and no longer an innate quality of the activated ability.
  • Animosity now properly grants Witch Hunter Captain 25% increased critical strike chance.
  • Bounty Hunter’s Locked and Loaded - Single shot damage increase from 1.0 to 2.0. BLAM
  • Sienna staff burning dots: damage tick increased from 0.05 to 0.07. Note that this is in part to compensate for removal of stagger-damage buffing from dots in general.
  • Battle Wizard’s Fire Walk has been reworked to prevent as many out of bounds issues as possible, and to make it more impactful and less disorienting.
  • Adjusted the timings for the reset of Battle Wizard Siennas Passive Ability “Tranquility” after attacking with a staff to be in line with when the attack ends, instead of when the action ends.
  • Changed the targeting functionality for Pyromancer’s Burning Head to never remove the target (unless it dies). This should solve some issues where these projectiles veers off from the intended target.

Weapon Tweaks & Fixes

  • Fix for starting attack with melee immediately after switching from ranged: Added check for hold input on initial melee charge since delayed wield switch caused by heavy ranged attack make timing attack input tricky - previously players had to wait until melee weapon was wielded for attack input to register, now a simple hold will start the attack as soon as the melee weapon is wielded.
  • Made headshot and crit effectiveness work the same way and stack as multipliers after eachother. Previously, headshot would increase a factor with built in scale - basically rendering diminishing returns when combined with a crit up to the point of maxxing out and doing nothing depending on weapon. NOW it’s way simpler and should provide a flat buff to the headshot/crit part of the total damage.
  • Increased heavy stagger threshold from 2.0 to 2.5 of stagger resistance, basically making things fly around less and provide more controlled staggers.
  • Introduced an ignore stagger reduction to light smiter attacks (1h axe, axe-shield, elf 1h axe, and various 1h swords/falchion combo finishers). Note that dual wields are exempt from this. Should help with staggering foes across difficulties more easily.
  • Tuned increased stagger duration modifiers across the board, in general reducing the time-scale used in order to tighten up the loop a bit an balance better between pushes, heavy CC attacks and normal attacks.
  • Single target cleave:
    • Made different profiles for attacks that previously shared the same single-target cleave profile: Dual daggers lights and sword-dagger light 3 got slightly increased cleave (think 3 slaves), while other single target light attacks (stabs/axes and the like) kept the reduced 1-target cleave.
  • Removed exception for Armored enemies from the headshots sets lowest stagger threshold to 0 effectively meaning you can get the smallest staggers on all enemies by hitting them in the head.
  • Ranged Weapons:
    • Gave all ranged weapons a default min stagger value bonus of 1, basically providing a 20% damage bump across the board.
  • Upped dodge and dodge count on the following weapons: ALL shield weapons (from 0.85 to 1.0 dodge and from 1 to 2 dodge count, elf went to 1.05 dodge and 3 dodge count cause elf) 2h axes (0.95 to 1.0 dodge) 2h hammers (0.85 to 1.0 dodge) 2h picks (0.9 to 1.0 dodge)
  • Smiter cleave reduced (0.09 to 0.05)
  • In order to set heavy hitting one target attacks apart we’ve reduced their cleave capacity to make hordes and multiple enemies trickier to handle.

Wow that’s massive a lot of things nice! I just checked the game and I saw this update 31GB so now the total GB for the game is raised to 65 before the patch it was 45GB. Just curious to know is that OK?? The file size I mean
Well everything is welcome if it means improvements and a better experience

Yessir

Some of the wording I’m seeing isn’t clear on here. Is the xbox update getting delayed as well as on PS4? Everything is present in the game update, but when I go to the Microsoft store to buy WOM, it sends me to a dead page.

I’m playing on the new Winds of Magic update. Wanted to state that there’s a new bug on the Dwarf Slayer’s ultimate where he’ll do his jump, but in the middle of the jump you just straight up drop at like mach 20 and it feels terrible while also making “Dawi-Drop” useless. Also, the DLC page on the Xbox store is a dead page, I can’t access it.

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the Winds of Magic expansion on Xbox.

A pre-patch went live yesterday, and we will let you know as soon as we have an update on Winds of Magic.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Same problem on PS4. You cant buy WoM.

This feels horrible for what reason they changed it?

I don’t know if I’m liking the bubble timer ending. There are a lot of jerk speedrunners on Xbox. They’ll end up screwing over the whole party trying to get books.

Sorry to say this to be honest the price for winds of magic I think is too much expensive I mean 20€ just for a map only 1 a new faction 5 weapons and cataclysm difficult…
With 4 maps I can accept that price jesus… Waiting 1 year for this… disappointing…
A fair price would be 10€ not more than this

You’re fine I mostly just wanted to let you know about the Slayer jump bug in case you didn’t know. I figured you guys already knew about the WoM problem. Thank you for acknowledging the problems we’re having, I shall be patient.

Out of bonds reasons. Same with BW. Might have been for other reasons also, but if so I don’t remember them.

All there in the patch notes, friend.

I highly prefer OG Leap&Walk, but we’ve been playing like this for about four months now on PC, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to change. Instead +100% range talents for both was cut last patch, due to same “out of bonds” reason…

With winds of magic do we get lohner’s emporium like on pc?? The store where you can buy cosmetics with in game currency
Pls Can someone explain me this?
Also I would like to get a proper bounty board like fatshark already did with vermintide1 where you complete missions and you get new armors, trinkets, weapons, and helmets.
Is that so hard to do?? I wonder why this feature is still missing

OK I did some research the emporium is winds of magic Season 2 update and the beta will be soon available on pc.
That means we will get it later at some point in the future next year.
Also Can’t wait to play on castle drachenfells maps once again. I Hope they will come soon

Nothing so far and it’s weird… No new achievements in the list… The total is still 1500points. On pc nothing either I think.
I hope in the future they will add them with an update

I’ve noticed a bug, one that I have repeated to make sure of.

Halescourge, first tome, when issuing a command for a bot to pick up the time, the game will stall for a moment, then confirm the command. This leaves you in a slowed movement state, which I couldn’t find a way out of.
