  • When you go very close to some buildings or vehicles, sometimes your character will be pushed away

  • When aiming from the back seat, the aim axis is off
  • When aiming target in great distance with the scope, the right aim axis shifts slightly

Vehicles[edit | edit source]

  • You can drive up very steep inclines at the moment. This is not intentional and will be addressed in the next build
