Gray Zone Warfare Patch 1 Fixes Over 200 Issues

Gray Zone Warfare's first real update is live now.

After getting a couple of smaller hotfixes since launch and after giving players time to test out changes ahead of their release, Gray Zone Warfare has finally gotten its first full update with the release of Patch 1. This update released on Wednesday comes with fixes for over 200 different issues as well as a few balance changes like buffed damage for shotgun slugs. Gray Zone Warfare developer Madfinger Games also gave an idea of what's next for the game by saying that Patch 2 wasn't far away either.

While today's does address 200ish issues, according to Madfinger Games, the patch notes for the update aren't quite as long since many of the changes were housed under "various issues" being fixed. As for what's coming after this update, Madfinger Games said rubber banding and other issues are being worked on now while a larger update implementing a day and night cycle will come later this year.

Below are the patch notes for Gray Zone Warfare's Patch 1:
