[PC] Umber Wasp 1.3.0 - Patch Notes

The Umber Wasp update (1.3.0) is focused on continued gameplay improvements and polish to pathfinding, and pings. This update also brings several quality-of-life improvements, such as a smaller icon size on the tactical map and a better flow for end-game stats. The balance changes will impact all factions, with some focus on the Deutsche Afrikakorps. Additionally, this update delivers a Newsfeed for players to access patch notes and news directly from the game’s main menu. We are also introducing one new 4v4 map with Sousse Wetlands and a reworked 1v1 map of Pachino Stalemate. Be sure to review all of the changes and fixes below or check out the Mission Briefing for an overview.  


New Map


Sousse Wetlands – 4v4 

Added 4v4 Sousse Wetlands map to Automatch, Co-op vs A.I., Skirmish and Custom game modes. 

Sousse Wetlands is a vast Tunisian map with three distinct locations: 

The ancient walled city to the North
Featuring exciting urban combat and flanking routes galore 

The wetlands and causeway
Featuring masses of foliage and water where combat is long-ranged, and maneuverability is key 

The desert village to the South
Where cover can rapidly deteriorate, and defenders can easily be outflanked 


Reworked Map


Pachino Stalemate – 1v1

Reworked 1v1 Pachino Stalemate map. This map is available in Automatch, Co-op vs A.I., Skirmish and Custom game modes. 

  • A redesign of the existing 1vs1 map for all game modes, including: 
  • Considerable changes to territory and accessibility 
  • Large rock formations have been removed map-wide enabling better mid to late game pathfinding (which should open the map up as larger vehicles hit the field) 
  • Updated cover around central resource points 
  • Updated map textures to improve visibility around key areas 
  • Updated atmosphere

Match stats 

  • Quitting a match will no longer exit the Match Stats screen.  
  • If a player gets disconnected from a match, they will now still be able to view the match stats.   





  • Adjusted vehicle pathfinding to take more direct paths to the requested location. 
  • Infantry will now do less pathing adjustments when friendly soldiers are in the way. 
  • Infantry will no longer prefer to take paths with denser cover distribution, which has often led to unpredictable behaviours. 
  • Infantry will now be able to path through allied infantry and team weapons. When traversing through blocking vehicles, infantry will now think they can path through, but will be physically stopped until the vehicles move out of the way for more predictable behavior. 
  • Retreating infantry will no longer get stuck in place when pathing into vehicles, squads, and team weapons. 
  • Team weapons (whether abandoned, set-up, or idle) will no longer be able to block chokepoints for allied units. The space under team weapons is now considered a pathing space.      
  • Units executing attack orders will more consistently approach their target in a straight line.  
  • Vehicles doing a Move order at longer distance will now follow a straight path opposed to following a path that is aligned with their orientation.       
  • Vehicles will no longer be allowed to stop while phasing.    


  • On map communication pings will now feature a new visual effect, that includes a uniquely colored tear drop effect lasting for 10 seconds. 
  • New features for ping visibility 
  • A colored light beam will appear on pings to improve visibility at distance and when used next  to tall assets like high vegetation, trees and buildings. 
  • Previous pings will be removed when a new ping of the same type is issued.  
  • Each ping type will have a unique cursor when selected. 
  • New animation effects on both minimap and tactical map have been added to drastically improve ping readability.

Ping cooldown 

  • Introduced a cooldown period during ich a player can no longer issue pings, which is activated when a given player issues multiple pings in rapid succession. 
  • When on cooldown, trying to use pings again will display a message in the chat visible to the player. 
  • Continuously using pings when on cooldown will further increase the cooldown itself.  


Map Updates 

  • HQ Sector bunker positioning has been adjusted across various maps to prevent bunkers from unintentionally covering resource points, whilst also reducing the number of blind spots that might be exploited by the enemy player. 
  • Many heavy-crush rock piles have been removed across Africa maps, including but not limited to Road to Tunis - 1v1 and Gazala Landing Ground - 3v3 
  • Heavy-crush rock piles have been replaced in many cases by Sangars, which still provide heavy cover, but are less resilient to damage and are medium-crush

Taranto Coastline 1v1 

  • Rebalancing of buildings near Victory Points. 
  • Removal of several large rock outcrops to enable late-game crush to open the map. 
  • Territory layout adjusted to be more appropriate for competitive gameplay.

Twin Beaches 1v1  

  • Added an infantry-only “gitty” between Mount Bacon and the Northern beach 
  • Adjusted the placement and number of rocks and tank traps on the Southern beach, to better improve vehicle flow and pathfinding 
  • Minor adjustments to cover around Mount Bacon 
  • Terrain adjusted to rebalance height gameplay around Mount Bacon

Campbell’s Convoy – 2v2  

  • Readjusted cover placement along the central resource points, particularly around the most contested resources. 

Catania Crossing 3v3 

  • Returned the baby truck to its home, where it belongs. 
  • Updated the two rail bridges to one double length bridge, reducing the number of bridges to destroy/repair in this area of the map from 4 to 2.

Mignano Summit – 3v3  

  • Updated territory layout, reducing the number of high resource points and spreading their value more evenly across the map. This should reduce the chances of games ending too soon from dominating the central areas of the map. 

Monte Cavo – 4v4 

  • Updated camera mesh to make it adhere closer to the terrain, which will prevent the camera from elevating too high near rocky outcrops. 
  • Updated atmosphere to transition into Dawn after around 30 minutes of gameplay. 

Winter Line – 4v4 

  • Updated cover placement around the central bunker complex. 
  • Replaced a number of trenches with sangars, improving the pathfinding of tanks in these areas.

Tactical Map 

  • Scaled down unit decorators, they now act as position icon. 
  • Removed the Unit position icon (circle). 

New Cosmetics 

Eight new cosmetics will be released in October, with four releasing in each of the first two weeks. 

British Forces 

  • Mud Brown Foot Guards
  • Mud Brown Matilda II

US Forces

  • Sea Blue M18 Hellcat
  • Sea Blue Sniper


  • Dark Brown Brummbar
  • Dark Brown Nebelwerfer 


  • Basalt Grey Stug III D
  • Basalt Grey Anti-Tank Gun Team  



Accuracy Changes  

We have standardized accuracy across the board for the various tank guns. We have noted that our tank guns were too accurate at maximum range. This resulted in situations where vehicles chasing at maximum range would often land their shots while on the move, more than intended, especially after the fix to projectiles that made it easier for scatter hits to avoid low obstacles.  

  • 76mm halftrack and 221 Panzerbüchse accuracy set 0.1/0.055/0.045   
  • Anti-armor vehicle accuracy set to 1/0.05/0.04  
  • Crusader II and III accuracy set to 0.1/0.05/0.04  
  • General medium, heavy and light tank accuracy set to 0.075/0.0475/0.035  
  • Hellcat, Marder III and variants accuracy set to 0.1/0.055/0.4  
  • Sherman 76mm accuracy set to 0.1/0.05/0.04


We have made significant changes to the balance of anti-air and airstrike abilities. In general, anti-air units will be significantly more effective at stopping airstrikes within their vicinity. Furthermore, anti-air can now engage planes beyond the protected border regions of the map, giving anti-air more time to respond.  

Most mobile anti-air units have been standardized to output similar damage to aircraft. The following units have been changed: 

  • CWT 15CMP AA Truck 
  • Crusader AA 
  • M16 Quad Halftrack 
  • Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind 
  • Flak 30 20mm AA Gun Team 
  • Flakvierling Halftrack


Airstrike Abilities have also been separated into general classes of durability. The list below goes from least durable to most durable: 

  • Strafing Runs (P-47 Strafing Run from the ASC, Luftwaffe Strafing Run) 
  • Close-in/Dive Bombs (P-47 Dive Bomb from the ASC, Fragmentation Bombs) 
  • Loiter (Hawker Typhoon Anti-tank loiter) 
  • Reconnaissance versions of Strafing, Dive Bombs, and Loiters (Recon Artillery, P-47 Reconnaissance Loiter) 
  • Heavy Bomber Runs (Carpet Bombing Run, Breakthrough Incendiary Bombing Run)


A single anti-air unit will be able to deny nearby Strafes, but multiple anti-air units are required to deny higher durability abilities. Two AA units will generally be able to lock down an area, while three will deny all but the Heavy Bomber Runs, which are designed to be largely unaffected by AA. Keep in mind this will have minor differences by map, direction of the airstrike, and when the anti-air unit faces its target. 

These relationships only matter when the anti-air is covering a specific area. While anti-air can cover a significant area, they have been tuned that additional anti-air units are required to cover the larger 4 vs 4 maps. This is something we’ll keep an eye on and rebalance in the future as necessary, but the intended goal is that airstrikes should be counterable even in smaller game modes such as 1 vs 1, but not to the point they become irrelevant in larger game modes where players can more easily specialize into airstrikes or anti-air.  


  • Loiters are currently bugged, and are able to be shot down easier than intened. We hope to address this in a future patch.

We are making a number of changes to DAK to address some of the issues they face. These issues include a lack of ready access to infantry-based anti-tank units when going for the Mechanized Kompanie and the early weakness of their Panzergrenadiers when outside Combined Arms range. We still want DAK to be a vehicle-based faction that needs to leverage its vehicles to gain an advantage and have made improvements to early units like the 250 Halftrack to further emphasize to encourage vehicle play.

Description automatically generated 




  • Changed the way weapon swap animations are played so they are now layered as upper-body animation. Mechanically that means that when a unit upgrades to a new weapon (such as the BAR) or when a unit changes weapons (such as mine sweeper for engineers), they no longer stop in their tracks and get separated from the rest of the squad.   
  • Fixed a T Pose when units embark into the Deutsche Afrikakorps 205 Light Carrier.  
  • Fixed hit reaction animations when infantry is dropped to prone from explosions (grenades, mortar, etc.). These animations should now quickly end when the squad is issued a command, instead of keeping the unit locked down for the full length of the animation (It was never the intention for hit reaction animations to lock down units in place). 
  • Fixed a problem where squads would lose the player's requested unload destination if the player issued a second order while the squad was in the process of unloading. The vehicle will now properly acknowledge the new destination and navigate accordingly. Soldiers will now also respond to the unload more quickly and will exit the hold more seamlessly. 
  • Modified the Weapon Swap to use an upper body animation layer. This should should mean kneeling units to no longer stand up when ordered to change weapons or tools. 
  • Removed most pivots from infantry to increase infantry responsiveness.   
  • There should be no more popping before and after throwing a grenade. Entities should now be using the aim animation while rotating to the ability location.  
  • Adjusted the behaviour of infantry entering cover while engaged in combat. Infantry will now avoid sliding into cover (and instead opt to stay standing and shooting) if they are in the middle of aiming. However, the unit will still do the slide into cover animation if they aren't aiming - which might happen depending on a number of factors, such as the weapon type, range, wind down period etc.  


  • Anti-Air units can now target airplanes outside the playable area.      
  • Artillery should now fire with a 20 second cooldown that is surfaced through a decorator It should respect having vision on the enemy unit.    
  • Breach now forces retreat of garrisoned units.     
  • Burst weapons will no longer keep firing if the target ducks behind a shot blocker.   
  • Clarified the meaning of “resource lost” stats with tool tips. This means the resource value of units lost in combat.  
  • Fallschirmpioneers now have access to wire cutters from the start of the game.   
  • Fixed damage over time damage not awarding veterancy and kills to the damage originator.   
  • Fixed HMG redeploying when switching targets in arc.

  • Beyond the meaning of Unit Efficiency being unclear, there were also errors in the calculation of efficiency which have been fixed. (Average) efficiency was displaying a total instead of an average. Additionally, the total damage dealt had been including friendly fire and environmental damage. 
  • Updated a large number of tooltips in-game to display numerical values for bonuses of many upgrades and abilities. 
  • Updated the VFX on On Map Communication Pings for the Attack, Defend and Look Here pings. Added a new VFX beam to make pings more visible when used on tall assets like buildings or when placed behind trees and bushes.
