You guys now have the option to flag my update posts if you hate them! Although, I’ll probably veto :wink:


I do need the flag a post badge…

You gave 'em the idea. Now we just wait for the day someone actually does it.

I assume the team has tried doing the To The Moon quest in UVHM, just to make sure the beacon’s health scales properly. It would be hilarious if it didn’t, though. :stuck_out_tongue:


*flags post

But I just discovered Combee is a thing.

I flagged this. Here is my message

" Jeff said i could. And I hate the word update. I really, really hate it. Get it out of my face. We need a new word for update. I dont like words that start with UP and end in DATE."

I wasn’t sure if you were joking or not so i did it. Don’t give me a infaction point please (if we still have those)

Its so peaceful and harmless.

Two things regarding the PC notes:

Firstly, what is a “Hardcoded Micropatch”, as versus a regular old patch, anyway? Is this gonna roll out differently somehow?


•Fixed an issue where the second player in a split screen game was unable to use the SHiFT vending machine.

Uhhh, you guys sure these are the PC notes after all?

Sending both of these notes to the support team to update the KB. This first one should read “Hardcoded Hot Fixes” – basically adding hot fixes to the game so they’ll be in place even if you’re offline.

See above. Thanks!

YAY I can do “to the moon” solo soon

Also, flagged because REASONS!!!

Between fixing the flying guardians in the Sentinel fight, and fixing To The Moon (on the 16th), I’m a happy camper.

Can’t wait for the update and the new DLC :thumbsup:

Just in general, thanks to the devs for releasing the patch notes ahead of time this go round. Very cool.

Merci Beaucoup

Done. :bamboo:

  • Enabled “Handsome AI” side mission in main game for all three

So looking forward for this!

I’ll take you up on that :wink:

For give my ignorance, but this “update” is supposed to enable uvhm, but I still have the"willow" listed. I haven’t been prompted to download anything either. Is this a “hotfix” or prompted download? I’m on xbox and it’s after 7:00 am on the east coast.

Me too isn’t that supposed to change and I did the update on xbox
