Capcom announced that Monster Hunter: World is getting an update this Wednesday to address a few bug fixes, including one for the Bow weapon before the Monster Hunter Championship 2018 starts.
Here are the patch notes for the Update 2.01 (PS4)/126.96.36.199 (Xbox One):
Wednesday, April 4th 00:00 (UTC)
- In Update Ver. 2.00, a balance update was done to the bow’s Dragon Piercer attack to fix a bug where you could shoot past the attack’s angle limitations. However due to this update, when the target is lined up with the reticle at a very fast speed and the Dragon Piercer fires, it was discovered that the player may not be able to face in the direction of the reticle. This has been fixed so that even if the player is aiming at a target quickly in a direction they are not facing, the reticle will still be able to aim in that direction.
Please note that during Dragon Piercer, if the reticle is aimed at an area outside of the allowed range, the attack will fire in the direction the player is facing.
- When selecting loadouts during Arena Quests, a bug occurred where the item window order would change. However, this has now been retooled as part of the game design.Details:
1.From the default cursor position, the item pouch order when checking equipment info will be from left to right.
2.Next, the fixed items will appear in the following order, left to right: Whetstone, Capture Net, Fishing Rod, and BBQ Spit.
3.The last items will be the specialized tools, listed from left to right.
- Other minor bugs were fixed
Here’s an apology statement from Capcom:
With this update, we have fixed a bug related to the bow used in the Monster Hunter Championship 2018, as well as a change to the functionality of the item pouch. To the players who are planning on participating in the Monster Hunter Championship 2018, we deeply apologize for changing the design of the gameplay before the tournament begins.
Monster Hunter: World is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It releases on PC in Fall 2018. The game’s first seasonal event will start on April 6, and you can read all about it in our previous report.
