We have addressed the client-side performance issues people have been experiencing since the patch yesterday. See below for the notes.

  • Fixed client-side performance issue related to new optic lens system. The "fancy" lens rendering can also now be disabled on your client by lowering your scope detail setting in video options.
  • Fixed a bug with the 4x scope on the M1A1 not shooting on target.
  • Fixed a bug with Ministry where you were forced to jump into the entrance instead of simply being able to walk in.
  • Updated the physic model on the rocks in Peak to reduce instances of getting stuck and getting inside of rocks.

We have just released a small patch that will hopefully make a big difference to the lag issues the servers have been experiencing. We won't know for sure until we've stress tested them across the board, so please join in and play if you've run into the issues before.

A few bugs have also been addressed in this patch, along with updated versions to the map Peak and Heights, with corresponding Coop updates.


New Content

  • Updated Peak and Revolt.
  • Updated Heights (Coop) and Peak (Coop).

  • Optimized particle effects for molotov cocktails and incendiary grenades for improved client-side performance.
  • Increased the player step size by 6 units (18 to 24), this means that players should no longer get stuck trying to walk over small objects.

  • Player counter on the scoreboard now correctly reflects the number of players in a coop game.
  • The user will no longer have to enter snd_rebuildaudiocache into the console after downloading a sound pack from Workshop.

Insurgency - along with Arma 3, Natural Selection 2, and Sanctum 2 - could be discounted further for a flash sale, if the community votes!


If the group of games wins, Insurgency would become $6.75 a 55% discount for 8 hours.

We have isolated and fixed a client/server crash that would happen when a server reaches the end of its mapcycle, and have decided to release a quick hotfix for it. So get updating, and hop back on the servers for some less-interrupted Insurgency action!

More details on today's update as well as the hot fix can be found here.
