Update 16 has arrived for Hell unleashed, and here is the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch.

In this update, Hell Let Loose fixes a ton of bug fixes, including the bug that doesn't allow players to crouch while performing the crouch sprint animation while holding a gun. It also fixes the IS-1 cannon having the wrong name on the HUD, and missing Leave and Leave Server buttons in the game menu when players are in the Killed In Action screen. The update also brings gameplay and feature changes that reduce the cost of building Repair Stations and Bazooka Ammo to just 2 Rockets.

Here is everything listed in the patch notes:-



Armor

  • Significantly reduced the collision size of tank shells (shells should be less likely to explode on objects they would otherwise have to pass through, such as when firing between a fence.

  • Added a "Repairs in progress" HUD indicator when repairing
  • Adjusted shell projectiles to start from base of gun to avoid firing through objects
