Alongside the new additions to the game, the update also brings many bug fixes and changes to Grounded. The Wasps have received some nerfs and won’t be spawning as frequently in base attacks. Wasps are also no longer immune to poison and will not heal as much as before.

With the addition of the Infected Broodmother, poison damage has seen many buffs. Most poison effects applied to the player will now last double the duration and will deal increased damage. The poison effects applied from the Broodmother set will no longer affect the player or their party members. Additionally, the poison damage gained from Spider and Widow armor sets has been increased.

Furthermore, the update also introduces crash fixes. According to the patch notes, a memory leak that caused the Grounded to crash after playing for some time has been fixed. Obsidian has also fixed a crash that would occur when the player uses the “Copy” action on a building.
