Crysis 3 Multiplayer Beta Gets First Patch, Tweaks Shotgun, Predator Bow, ADS Sensitivity and More

Crytek has been listening to the Crysis community and is deploying the first patch for the currently ongoing Crysis 3 beta.

It takes a look at and tweaks a number of weapons, ADS handling, as well as a couple of the kill streak rewards.

Check out the full Patch 1.0 notes below, via the official website, now available now on the PC and Playstation 3 and soon on the Xbox 360.

  • “Marshall” shotgun’s damage tweaked
  • “OGR” machine gun’s recoil reduced
  • Predator Bow’s  charge time reduced (from 1.3s to 1.0s)
  • ADS sensitivity modified to improve weapon handling and aiming
  • “Pinger” vehicle rotation speed increased
  • AY69 submachine gun damage increased
  • “Swarmer” kill streak reward damage increased
  • “Swarmer” kill streak reward damage tweaked

In addition Crytek also plans to make a few changes to the Crysis 3 multiplayer, “articularly to game balance and technical issues. Many of these improvements are based off of your feedback, so thanks again for enabling us to provide you with continued support.”

Crytek also commented on the matter of cheating, promising to work on identifying exploits and refining detection to protect legitimate Crysis 3 players from being banned by mistake.

Head on over to the MyCrysis forums to report cheaters, as well as to provide general feedback for the Crysis 3 Multiplayer beta.

    So they do listen,hmm…

    If anybody’s played the beta and felt that the gunplay was strange, I’ve figured out that it’s definitely over the difference between normal sensitivity and ADS sensitivity. Hopefully this helps it a bit and makes gunplay feel more fluid.

      Thas why i stopped playing the beta, gunplay feels strange. I’ll try again after the patch

    • I tried it again on PC today.. for some reason i can’t hit the broad side of a barn when I am shooting.. i’ve been playing shooters my whole life, and I just can’t explain it.. I actually tried with my xbox controller and felt like I was doing better… now I know that shouldnt be true

    where is “stomp” nerf and “shield” nerf? They are ridiculous.

  • One thing that really bugs me is when you are aiming down sights then come out of your sights.

    The transition period between coming off the sights and to your hip still has the low sensitivity of when you are aiming down sights.

    Really gives the guns a sluggish feel.

    This hurts the bow the most and has been present since Crysis 2.

      Wish they’d just give us separate sensitivity sliders and say, “Here you go, adjust it to your comfort level.”.

      its another example of games being developed for console and aim assist then ported to PC, they dont think that maybe PC gamers would rather just have 1 muscle memory….

  • born2expire

    No changes to melee, blah

    I find the shotgun, when gotten used to, is a very good (if not op) weapon. good to see they’re taking notice. Also the game comes out on my Birthday.
