Beta update – 21 Nov, 2022 @ 18:55 UTC

Due to networking code changes, the beta branch is no longer able to communicate with the public default branch until the next update, coming in several months. We are expecting the next public release to be on April 20th, 2023, Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop’s 6th birthday.

  • Paranoia: Unexpected Encounter: Fixed bugs related to grenade launcher aiming.
  • Paranoia: Hostile Places: Fixed bugs related to grenade launcher aiming.

  • Fixed the scanning animation for sentries desynchronizing from the gun’s idle angle.
  • Fixed inconsistencies in collision-checking code, most notably related to bot marines and projectiles.

  • Added env_headcrabcanister.
  • Added script_intro.

  • Added a new method to marines: SetMarineRolls, which allows maps and challenges to change whether individual marines can jump.
