  • The DedSec faction can be unlocked in the open session with all its characters after completing a new challenge. The other factions have also been improved with changes in stats.

XDefiant latest patch notes are out just ahead of the open session’s launch, making a variety of much-requested changes by fans. The changes have also improved the general server stability, latency, and overall feel of the game by implementing a better Net Code system. Moreover, console-only players have received additional care, as the console controller experience has been enhanced with a more robust and balanced aim assist.

As per Ubisoft, the players will reportedly see a highly reduced number of errors in XDefiant when the open session commences due to the new Net Code and enhanced synchronization. The closed beta also had problems with server stability that entirely hindered the matchmaking or caused long lobby times; the new patch notes have also tackled that problem. Moreover, the team has updated the UI branding for the open session.

XDefiant team has made many technical changes since the closed beta elapsed, including an improvement in the billboards surrounding the players to remove the feeling of going against the aim assist before setting aim on enemies. The aim assist has also been improved for all platforms when players are within the 2-meter range from each other, which would previously lead to weird problems with the camera. 

Coming to console-specific changes only, a 120hz mode has been added for the PS5 and Xbox Series X for those linked to supporting displays; it should help the overall input latency. In the closed beta, the PS5 had an issue that caused it to gain an extra 40ms, which lowered the performance. The aim assist feature has also been boosted by about 5%, offsetting the console limits to provide enjoyable clashes with PC users.

The Libertad faction’s trait has also been activated, which features the ability to generate health after taking damage. The Echelon’s Sonar Vision animation has also been updated to improve visuals, and the Echelon user will appear on the minimap if the Intel suit is used on them. The Phantom users holding the Blitz shield will no longer suffer incendiary damage from enemy cleaner bullets and many more minor fixes to the different factions.

Including a giant list of minor changes to all the weapons, there is also a new dark flashbang device for the open session. The complete list of gun changes is shared below.
