War Thunder Update 3.80 Patch Notes

Improvements and fixes

  • The remaining ammo of the first stage ammo rack in ground vehicles is now indicated in the left bottom corner on the damage panel.
  • Option “Download additional content only in the hangar” has been added to the “Customization of vehicles” menu tab.
  • To optimize downloading of custom camouflages or those encountered in battle from the Market, the maximum volume of the data storage has been increased for PC and Xbox versions.
  • Camouflage card is now again displayed when hovering the cursor over the camo’s name with no need to open the full list of available camos.
  • In the “doubled fire control mode” while using a commander’s sight, synchronization of the camera and muzzle direction has been improved (report).
  • Target designation for the squad in the “Gunner’s view” has been improved. The marker is now set by the crosshair, independently from the gun position.
  • A bug has been fixed where any shot below the waterline in the protection analysis would damage the compartment in the bow of bluewater ships.
  • BR-350P shell — a bug has been fixed where when aiming at the turret roof of some tanks in the protection analysis, the data of the penetration probability changed cyclically.
  • A bug has been fixed where torpedoes and other auxiliary armament on naval craft might appear over the vessel.
  • A bug has been fixed where certain terms in the Battle tasks might count the most recent player vehicle instead of those which gained a frag.
  • Some time ago, we fixed an issue which would occur in tank RB mode where, while aiming at an enemy tank and pressing LT/L2 to zoom in, the sight could lock onto an enemy aircraft, with the gun turning after it. Unfortunately, as reported to us through your feedback, this issue migrated to the tank AB mode. The bug has now been fixed for all game modes.
