Marvel's Avengers Fixes Captain America's Most Annoying Problem

Marvel's Avengers recently revealed another big patch for the game, which will institute a number of fixes regarding loot, graphics, and enemy balancing. That said, one of the most important changes is to one of the game's playable characters, namely Captain America. Those who have discovered breakable doors in the game will know how annoying it is that despite having a heavy attack Cap could not break down these obstacles, which often hide resources and strongboxes behind them. Thankfully the new patch fixes that issue, and we couldn't be happier about it.

Cap will now be able to use his heavy attack and break these obstacles down, meaning you won't be penalized for not taking control of one of the other characters during the mission.

The patch also nerfed the homing projectiles that have become infamous, so hopefully, that means they are much easier to dispatch than they were previously.

Now the only real roadblock during missions are those control panels that Black Widow can access but most others can't. That can be frustrating, so hopefully, that changes at some point too.

As part of the patch the team is awarding players some resources, and you can find their message below.

Hello Marvel’s Avengers community!

Patch 1.3.1 addresses a handful of large issues, including a fix for players being unable to accept Faction Missions / Villain Sectors.

We recognize and apologize that this bug prevented players from being able to earn specific rare rewards, and as such, are granting the following to all players:

250 Polychoron
500 Uru
These rewards can be claimed from Thursday, September 24 at 10:00 AM PDT until Thursday, October 1 at 10:00 AM PDT. You must view one of your Challenge Cards to activate this reward.

Thank you for the continued feedback!
