Hello Ghosts,

We have an update on the Operations & Maintenance hotfix announced last week. We will be implementing the hotfix tomorrow Thursday, October 11th at 7 AM UTC / 3 AM EST during a three-hour maintenance.

The following fixes will be live following maintenance completion:

• Fixed a bug that caused the weapon attachments to appear locked when they were previously unlocked
• Fixed a bug that caused the LVOA extended 30 round magazine attachment to be misplaced at the stock of the weapon
• Fixed an issue where players did not receive the correct 3000 Prestige credit reward upon reaching Tier 1
• Fixed a bug where the Shift Short Angled Grip appeared to be floating when attached to the U100 LMG
• Fixed a bug where the U100 light machine gun had a different suppressor in the loadout and in-game, than the one that appears in the gunsmith
• Fixed a bug that caused no sound to be present when using PSG-1 Sniper
• Fixed a bug that caused low or no sound from LMGs in Ghost War
• Fixed a bug where the Crye 2 Shirt clipped through character’s left arm when equipped
• Fixed a bug Female Sniper JPC in Coyote Brown has purple-textured bullets
• Adjusted AOR 2 camo pattern direction and brightness for better accuracy

We really appreciate your patience as we’ve continued to work hard on polishing these fixes.

We will continue investigating the bugs present on the current Known Issues list (https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1933035). Please check there if you are unsure of the status of a bug or contact our Customer Support (https://support.ubi.com/)team to report any issue you are experiencing.

Thank you, Ghosts.

Any chance of any kind of refund/compensation for folks that had to purchase accessory packs to re-unlock their unlocked accessories?

Will the Crye Shirt 2 now have a patch on both sleeves, or still only the left arm?

As well, in a future update, can some of the unlocked cosmetics be reordered? For instance, can the Crye Shirt 2 be placed right below the original Crye Shirt, the post-launch Jeans (Stalker, Tactical Kneepad, ‘70s, etc.) be placed right below the original set of Jeans, and so forth? Currently, the haphazard order of all post-launch items is very messy.

Downloading it now. 16GB for a handful of PvE glitches? Still no acknowledgement of the various PvP problems such as constant disconnects in both ranked & quickplay, silent LMGs or forced draws even though all enemies have been eliminated? These are all game breaking issues that must be addressed.

How inefficient is the patching system that requires 9 bug fixes and one texture adjustment to the 15 and a half gig?

I downloaded the patch 1,25 & I know there is still maitnence for online gaming but offline
with the Crye Combat Shirt 2 I have noticed a problem with the patches when you have some vests on.
I know some have complained that the patch is only on one side but now
the patch covers the whole chest area.

Are these guys are hiring high school kids to do their programming or something?

How hard is it to make a hotfix that detects you don't need all 10 updates? This download is a waste of time.

The next content drop in December will bring more bugs, then they will do another hotfix... Waste more time downloading 18gb.

This is so unprofessional you guys have no idea.

Hire some real programmers.

I'm not attacking the developers, I'm stating an opinion. Ubisoft need to invest in skilled programmers and stop putting your interns on projects such as Ghost Recon, because this is hurting your IP more than anything. I haven't even completed the new mission with Caveara, because of how broken it was. I know it's been "patched" but it's just a turn off to see a huge franchise like Ghost Recon suffer in the hands of these "devs" who can't put 2 and 2 together. Nor do proper testing and debugging before releasing anything.

Pull your act together, hire people with proper skills. Or else the future of Ghost Recon is in shambles.
This is coming from someone who has been playing Ghost Recon since 2001.

A quite serious bug is that when the Sam Fisher's challenge is completed, the Sonar Goggles reward is still locked for some players. This doesn't happen with Caveira's gloves in Archangel challenge so definitely is not a matter of an "expired challenge" as some players write in the forums. I 've reported this issue some weeks ago to Ubisoft Support and received the answer that the Dev. Team has been informed. Although it has also been reported by several players there is still no fix here which is quite frustrating!

The "Equip Suppressor" is still missing on all snipers except on the HTI I think.

As you can see in the image, the rifles and all the other weapons are working. But for the snipers, I have to go in the customization menu, edit the weapon, equip the suppressor, then go back in the game.


It worked before the Special Operation 2 update. But it wasn't fixed in neither of the patches.

Could it be possible that you guys add the Predator's thermal function from the bio mask and include it to the helmet as well, it be really cool and it would make a bit of sense for both versions to have the same thermal. Anyway Great game guys.

Unfortunately those are a challenge reward, not a mission reward.

Mission rewards are always given and unlock for a character. Challenge rewards require a challenge to be active and unlock for a whole account.

We've had the Splinter Cell challenge with sonar goggles reward twice since April, so hopefully it will come around again soon.


PLEASE move the M203 back towards the receiver on the LVOA it’s too far forward, looks goofy. On the bad news it sits perfectly

This is going to be difficult for Ubi to fix, I suspect, because the attach point on the M203 mesh is towards the back while the piece of rail in the LVOA's keymod system is around in the middle of the shroud.

If they change the attach point in the LVOA's lower rail the foregrips will be in the wrong place. If they change the attach point on the M203 it will be in the wrong place on just about every other weapon (sticking into the receiver).

What they probably ought to do is create a "new" mod called "M203" specifically for the LVOA that looks and behaves like the M203 all other weapons have but has an attach point towards its front so that it sits correctly on the LVOA.

Whether they'll actually be willing to do that is another question.

Thank you for the reply non-exist-ent! If this is the case I just wonder why this is not happened with Caveira's gloves from the Archangel challenge? You can complete the challenge/mission at anytime and get the reward. Also which is the point to keep the mission in the game since there is no reward for completing it? All the other previous missions/challenges when they expired they disappered from the map. :confused:

Have you ever coded a game? You would know why it's 15.5Gb update. AND, why they don't make patch every day. O_o (they would be 15.5Gb everyday just for one little tweak in the code.) My god guys. Stop complaining on these kind of stuff. Test the patch, report bugs and be constructive in your comments please.

Stop complaining on these kind of stuff. Test the patch, report bugs and be constructive in your comments please.

Actually, even if you code something, you can split it into different files. Same goes for textures and everything else. So while updating, unless you touched a LOT of things, it should not be so big (Except when it modifies something related to the game core or the map)

BTW, you are asking people to be constructive, while the dev themselves are obviously not constructive at all and spread a stupid "patch" that break an equal number of things than the number of things it fixes, if not even more.. Which is pretty dumb to release such a thing. Even more when the patch itself was delayed for being "polished out"...

For those wondering about the big patches, they're just replacing the old files with new ones.

They modify some game files, and the new files can have a few or less MB than the old one. So, actually the patch is not adding 15 GB or so. The game will have approximately the same size. If they're gonna make a new file for each patch, your game will have to read 30 files, each one with each patch and will occupy even more.

That's how it works now, for all Ubisoft game. They're always replacing the old files with new ones, hence the big patches.

All the other previous missions/challenges when they expired they disappered from the map. :confused:

As I mentioned above the difference here is between "challenge rewards" and "mission rewards". The Sam Fisher goggles are a challenge reward, the Caveira gloves are a mission reward.

The upside of a mission reward is that you will always be able to get that reward regardless of what challenges are on. The downside is that mission rewards do not unlock across your whole account. So if you start a new character it will not have Caveira's gloves immediately available, you'll have to do the mission again.

If you're curious there actually was a challenge reward associated with the Caveira mission as well that was available for...two weeks, I think? when "SO2" and the R6 crossover were released. The reward for that was a voiceline. Boring! The gloves are much more fun. ))))

Another example of a mission reward---not challenge reward---is the "Predator biomask", a salvaged Predator faceplate strapped to a balaclava. Like Caveira's gloves you get this any time you to the associated mission ("The Jungle Moved" in Caimanes), but it will only be available on a character that has completed the associated mission, not your whole account.

Another thing to note is that if you play PvP you will always be able to wear mission reward items as long as you've unlocked them on at least one PvE character. Many rules are different over in that there Ghost War. XD

Hope that clears everything up!

And call me Ami. ))))

BTW, in the next patch... As you fixed the AOR 2, now comes the time to fix AOR 1 aswell right? AOR 1 is a desert camouflage, the texture that you use in game, looks nothing like the real counterpart. It's mostly gray/white, not tan.

The US desert tri colour needs to be changed, it doesn't look like the real camo in the slightest, it is blindingly bright, needs to be dusty and dole in appearance, just look at any us soldiers in the early years of the Iraq war thats how the camo should look.

The monocular helmet in the face wear section should definitely be in the head wear section? Even in its name it says helmet so why is it face wear? The default two eye hole balaclava would not be my first choice for that helmet.

The face protection piece is a really cool item but the fact it doesn't have a default balaclava with it, like the echelon goggles etc, it should have an artillery balaclava with it, it looks silly having the neck and face exposed, in film and games when face protection pieces have been used a balaclava is always used with it under the helmet. What do other people think? Because I think it's a cool item which could be easily improved so it can be used more, I have played a lot of online pve and pvp and I've never seen anyone use the face protection piece?

One last thing for now, the exo suit trousers are default black, I think the colour or camo slescted for the top piece, like a fleece or cry combat shirt, so if I select woodland cm so for the top t piece the trousers match up as the same camo, I feel that could be done as the ghillie colour on the trousers are determined by the colour selected for the ghillie suit piece on top,

I hope some changes can be made and additions added to the customisation of the game, thanks guys

DASH231095
10-17-2018, 01:54 PM
Also can we please get Los extranajeros gear, the camo and the patch? Feel like in the fallen ghost dlc we should have got customisable pieces. Would be cool to add the ghillie head piece that the crossbow stealth soldier uses, the heavy body gear that the juggernaut soldier uses, the camo and the patch would be really cool and useful

Yes, the bug preventing me from using my larger clips like the 50 round on the M4A1 and the 30 on the MK17 is fixed as well as using the 10 round on the MSR. A new bug now exists. If you unlock the M203GL in Remanza, it can't be used on the M4A1. This does not affect existing saves, but only new games, including in Ghost Mode.
