JAGGED BITE AND BONE SKEWER TORPEDO UPDATE


Buff: Removed the minimum range requirement

Details: The Jagged Bite and Bone Skewer Torpedo were initially given a minimum firing range to add an additional challenge while driving. We thought this would be more fun, and in many cases it is; however, we discovered that this unnecessarily penalizes those who prefer to auto the target.




  • [Weapons] Fixed a small visual bug on the Cataclysm Mortar (graphics)

  • [Other] General bug fixes and minor visual improvements
