Updated “Prioritize Strongest Weapon” setting

This setting aims to allow players to traverse quickly with melee equipped and be combat-ready after using an ability or interacting with the Spike, ult orbs, etc. Two changes were made.

  • Reworked ‘Prioritize Strongest Weapon’ setting
    • Renamed setting to Auto-Equip Prioritizes: Most Recent | Strongest
  • Updated the priority system to support weapon-like abilities (previous priority: Primary > Secondary > Melee)
    • New priority: (Ultimate & Primary) > (Secondary & Chamber Pistol) > Melee
    • Resolve priority ties by selecting the more recently equipped weapon
  • Added a new setting: Don’t Auto-Equip Melee.
    • Skips past the melee when finding the most recent weapon to auto-equip.
    • It prevents pulling the melee back out after channelling or casting abilities without changing any other auto-equip behaviour.


  • Deterministic Map System enabled for all regions.



  • Fixed a bug that was causing the Leave Match button to function incorrectly for PBE players


  • Fixed issue where Sova’s Recon Bolt was destroyed by Brimstone’s Orbital Strike even if the Recon Bolt was well out of the area


  • Fixed a bug where the mic icon on the scoreboard could not be interacted with after hovering over it with the mouse



  • A handful of bug fixes were prepped for Icebox, but the team ran into an issue that blocked us from shipping them right at the 4.05 launch. We hope to ship these before the next patch and will list them here as soon as we do.
