It’s fixed! №55

In this digest we would like to tell you about our continuing work on improvements and fixes in the game. You can find information about all updates that have been released in War Thunder on the website special section.

Correct Crew Replacement


This important fix is relevant for every tanker! There’s a general crew rule in War Thunder: “the primary gunner and the driver must be conscious for the vehicle to remain ready for combat”. Except for several vehicles that have dual control and targeting systems, there’s a rule in place that regulates how crew members replace their incapacitated comrades: secondary gunner, radio operator -> commander -> loader -> primary gunner -> driver.

This rule didn’t work properly in some cases. For example, when a commander and a loader were knocked out consecutively, the radio operator in your crew could take the place of the commander, and not the loader, as the rule dictates. We’ve fixed these errors.

Alternating Shots from Different Guns on Anti-aircraft Vehicles


We’ve corrected the work of the Gast guns on the SPAAG 2S6. Added alternating fire for 30mm guns of the 2A38 — now they will fire in alternation in accordance with their prototype. Alternating fire has also been added to the 40mm M2 guns on the SPAAGs M19 and M42.

This is a nice change that will raise the density of fire and the chance of hitting aerial targets.

Destroyed Barrels Are Gone


It was a simple error, but also an eyesore in the most literal sense. In some cases a destroyed barrel was still being displayed in the sights, covering the view. Now this shouldn't be a problem anymore.

Fixed the Visual Artefacts in Battles

Now blinking details like tank tracks or other vehicle parts won’t annoy you anymore: we’ve uncovered the root of this problem and fixed it!

Fixed the Binoculars in Free Look

Here’s the gist of the error: after enabling free look and switching to binoculars, your commander was facing the same direction as your gun. You’ve notified us of this inconvenience, and we’ve fixed the logic of this mechanic. Now when you enable binoculars in free look mode, the commander will face the same way as your camera.
