Epic Games have announced upcoming changes to the Glider Re-Deployment system after its initial testing phase. The changes will be a part of tomorrow’s Patch v6.21.
Epic Games have updated their blog to state new changes to the Glider Re-deploy system. The changes include audio so players can hear gliders coming towards them and other “additional changes in future updates”.
You can read the changes here:
We’ve finished our first week of Glider Re-deploy being available in all modes. During this time we’ve been collecting internal data and monitoring constructive feedback from all of you. We understand that not all players agree with this change, but we would like to continue with this functionality in the game based on the positive results we’ve been seeing.
As this feature remains available, we’ll begin making quality of life changes to its functionality. First of which will be prioritizing Glider audio over weapon audio within certain ranges, this will begin in v6.21. We also plan on adding additional changes in future updates.
Thanks for the discussion and feedback you’ve provided. Please continue letting us know how we can improve this feature, your thoughts on its effect in matches, and any other feedback you may have as we continue to work on Glider Re-deploy.
