Warhammer Vermintide 2_02

Fatshark’s Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has recently been updated and offers slightly less rigorous challenges for would-be adventures. Update 1.0.5 is available now and adjusts the Power of loot obtained from chest rewards. Veteran difficulty now has loot capped at 300 Power instead of 200 Power and you can now find Veteran items in the General’s Champion, Legend and Emperor’s Champion chests.

Hero Power is now scaled depending on the difficulty you play at. On Recruit difficulty, if you’re 200 Power, enemies will be scaled accordingly. Veteran will see enemies scaled to 500 Power if you’re hero Power is between 400 and 600. Thankfully, there’s no cap on hero Power for Champion and Legendary difficulties.

Various characters and sub-classes have seen adjustments to their various abilities. Kerillian’s Waystalker skill Daughter of the Hunt will now activate if she’s above 45 percent health as opposed to 25 percent health. Unfortunately, Kurnous’ Blessing has had an error fixed that was seeing Trueflight Volley returning more ammo than normal. Instead of 50 percent ammo returned, the ability will now return 20 percent ammo.

Check out some of the patch notes below and let us know what you think of the changes.

Fixes and tweaks

  • Chest rewards from Veteran difficulties will be capped at 300 Hero Power, up from 200.

  • Scaling has been tweaked for damage and cleave (using a 3.5 ratio rather than 3.0).
  • Fixed an issue which caused projectiles to not properly trigger hit or crit procs from traits and talents for clients.
  • Fixed an issue where the equipment trait Heroic Intervention wouldn’t function properly on clients.
