The Sapper is a new Support class option that deploys a specialized drone that shoots "concussion" mines. These mines drain stamina from players and suppresses them, slowing down their rush.

Division audio recordings from the patch notes?!? This whole "Clancy-verse" is so screwed up. There just is no canon shared between the different Clancy games. For example, in the 2013 Splinter cell conviction/blacklist story the president is a woman. Simultaneously, in GRAW 2013 the president is a man named Ballentine. Which is it? The Division is obviously not sharing a timeline with the other games so why put audio recordings in wildlands?? It doesn't make sense as anything other than a "fourth wall breaking" easter egg. Hell, Sam Fisher somehow exists in Far Cry New Dawn as well now so I guess over arching canon is not an Ubisoft objective.

Don't get me wrong, I loves me some easter eggs and the pliability of the Clancy-verse to be whatever Ubi wants to make. However, stuff like these audio recordings will confuse people new to the Clancy-verse, making them think they are directly connected when obviously they aren't.

PS: new patch looks good.

Guess I was right about them adding 500 new emotes and 500 new voicelines then. :P
