Game -

    · Big network code update - special lobby made for new version of multiplayer. It was made to bring best possible hit detection and hide effects of network delay as well as connection unreliability.
    - 2019's highly voted fan art submissions were added to the game.
    - Improved hit detection for both singleplayer and multiplayer. Instead of relying on full-player hit-boxes, per-limb hit-detection is applied whenever projectile-to-player collision is being checked now.
    - Eliminations that are caused by explosions are shown properly in multiplayer chat now.
    - Grenades should no longer spawn on the wrong side of walls when player stands too close when firing grenade launchers.
    - Experience & Skill Points were integrated into game interface. This feature is fully optional though.
    - Less start-up clicks to get into game (if auto-login feature enabled).
    - Faster default respawn times in ranked Multiplayer.
    - Higher regeneration delay in ranked Multiplayer.
    - Weapons reload automatically on each round change (ranked COOP mode).
    - Weapons reload automatically when scattered on map & far from any player (ranked DM & TDM).
    - Recently dropped weapons are no longer picked up unless 1 second passes.
    - Fixed some issues related to players not firing their weapons on other players' screen.
