Dying Light 2’s Latest Hotfix Dropkicks A Ton Of Persisting Bugs

Players aren't happy with some of the nerfs that Techland has made with this update.

Story Highlights

  • Dying Light 2 is the latest installment in the Dying Light zombie game franchise by Polish dev Techland.
  • The game’s latest hotfix 1.15.3 makes a bundle of noteworthy changes to the action-adventure.
  • Some players, however, are of the opinion that Techland should focus on the important issues first.

Dying Light 2, otherwise called Dying Light 2 Stay Human, has received a prominent new patch as of late that introduces an array of bug fixes and nerfs to in-game items. The hotfix has already rolled out for players across Xbox and PlayStation consoles, along with PC. Tweaks pertaining to the UI and translation have been made, along with the removal of progress blockers and unwarranted buffs.

As the news found itself circulating on the r/dyinglight subreddit, players expressed their disapproval and called out Techland for not tending to the more important issues the game is currently facing, including major co-op problems that prevent playability, and an alarming number of bugs in the single-player mode.

Of course they’re listed as “issues” that apparently needed to be fixed ASAP. Meanwhile there are bugs that still exist since launch that haven’t been fixed. Why does Techland insist on doing this all the time?” wrote the OP of a recent post in the subreddit. For those wondering, however, here are some of the patch notes from the recent Dying Light 2 update: 

  • Fixed an issue in the Lost Armory quest where both players in co-op could get stuck in a ‘Quest Failed’ screen if they failed when chasing Tackhead
  • UI text and translation tweaks
  • Fixed an issue with missing items if the player has a full stash and adds a new item into it
  • Items should return to players who lost them
  • Added a warning screen for the action
  • Rebalanced erroneously re-rolled gear affixes to pre-update state
  • Fixed an issue with player being unable to run if they changed weapon while aiming
  • Fixed one-time tutorials appearing on Community Maps
