Zero Day Patch Information


Welcome to the first of several patches planned for Killzone 3! Along with updates to multiplayer, you can also expect to find fixes for the campaign and enhancements to other portions of the game, such as Playstation Move support, through future patches as well. To get the best Killzone 3 experience, be sure to keep Killzone 3 up to date, even if you plan to play offline.

 

For those who participated in the Killzone 3 multiplayer open beta, you’ve already had the opportunity to play with several of the Gameplay changes as they were present in the package you downloaded. More updates and enhancements are on the way, based on the great feedback we received during open beta.

  • Increased the number of melee kills needed to unlock Increased Accuracy
  • StA-3 LMG has had its spread increased and overall accuracy lowered
  • Lowered the range and recoil of the LS-57 SMG
  • Silent Footsteps has been removed as a ribbon and is now an unlockable skill
  • Capturing a Capture and Hold area in Operations will award the same amount of points as it does in Warzone – it was previously worth less
  • A specific screen has been added to inform players when a Skill has been unlocked
  • Medic: The LS-57 SMG replaces their previously equipped StA-11 SMG
  • Medic: The M224-1A LMG replaces their previously equipped LS-13 Shotgun
  • Engineer: The StA-11 SMG replaces their previously equipped LS-57 SMG
  • Tactician: The LS-13 Shotgun replaces their previously equipped M224-1A LMG
  • Tactician: Neutralizing and capturing Tactical Spawn Areas now have two different timers, allowing you to neutralize the ownership away from the enemy faction quicker
  • Tactician: Spot & Mark has been rebalanced - it will now ‘pulse’ like a sonar for 30 seconds, rather than stay constantly active during its duration
  • Infiltrator: Disguise ranges for each rank has been adjusted. At rank 1, any player can see through Disguise when targeting the Infiltrator. At rank 2, a player must be within 30m range. At rank 3, a player must be within 15m range. Additionally, Disguise at rank 2 has had its timer set to ‘indefinite’ and is no longer based on a timer.

  • Current clan ratings are more accurately reflected at the beginning of the match

  • Clan matches will no longer end in a draw if one clan quits out (therefore forfeiting) before the remaining clan is able to score points in Guerrilla Warfare
  • You will no longer hang after pressing the Start button right after accepting a clan invite on the region select screen

 

Network Issues:

  • Network errors experienced during the open beta, such as 20002 and 8001, should no longer occur
