Gears of War 4 11/21 Update

Kill Trade Improvements

After looking into our Lag Compensation system, we discovered a couple of bugs that were impacting Kill Trades. These bugs resulted in scenarios where users could be killed by another player but not have their shots onto said player count despite being within the allowed latency window for lag compensation.

These bugs are now resolved, and you should now see Kill Trades more consistently in expected scenarios.

  • Players who leave a Horde session will now auto deposit any power they were carrying
