Introducing PTS Update 0.8.1381

Obsidian Entertainment and are proud to present the new patch 0.8.1381 that will be applied soon on the Public Test Server.

List of Changes compared to Early Access 5 (0.8.1374)

Game Mechanisms and Bugs

  • Corrected the way the shadows work on low settings
  • Optimized the build size by removing content not used in 0.8
  • Added numerous translation corrections
  • Fixed numerous cases of game crashes in battle
  • Returned the Battalion Decals
  • Fixed the bug where the players were charged double for purchasing consumables

Maps and Environment

  • Mobile toilet environmental objects are now destructable
  • Removed certain environmental objects causing issues ("flying trucks")


  • Spawn points for AI MBT's were moved
  • Numerous changes to environmental object locations to improve the gameplay experience

Vehicle Changes

  • Updated the Panzerhaubitze 2000 upgrade tree with correct module names
  • Corrected some of the BMD-2 texts where it was referred to as BMD-1
  • XM1 - reduced the hitpoints from 1995 to 1745 in order to mitigate its survivability due to that vehicle's very powerful armor for its tier

Leopard 1A5 Rebalance

The Leopard 1A5 has been given improvements to accuracy, camouflage, and targeting speed to make it more comparable to the earlier vehicles in the line. We feel this will help make the vehicle more competitive as well as more fun to play.

  • Camouflage increased from 0.05 to 0.1.
  • Targeting Time decreased from 3.4 seconds to 2.9 seconds
  • Optimum accuracy reticule size decreased from 0.15 to 0.121
  • Largest accuracy reticule size decreased from 1.8 to 1.45
  • Movement bloom rate decreased from 0.35 to 0.2
  • Hull Traverse bloom rate decreased from 1.5 to 1
  • Turret rotation bloom rate decreased from 0.24 to 0.15

OF-40 Rebalance

Some minor improvements have been made to accuracy on the move for the OF-40, similar to the Leopard 1A5 changes. The Targeting Time and accuracy for the OF-40 are unchanged, since they were already comparable to the Leopard 1 and the updated Leopard 1A5.

  • Movement bloom rate decreased from 0.35 to 0.2
  • Hull Traverse bloom rate decreased from 1.5 to 1
  • Turret rotation bloom decreased from 0.24 to 0.15

FV510 Warrior Rebalance

Our previous improvements to the Warrior were a step in the right direction, but have still proven insufficient to make it competitive. We've given the Warrior some significant additional boosts.

  • Hit Points increased from 1720 to 1980
  • Targeting Time decreased from 2.2 seconds to 2.0 seconds

Object 430 Rebalance

Moving the Object 430 to Tier 3 has helped bring it closer to par, but even with this adjustment it's still over-performing somewhat. We've slightly reduced its damage output to help bring this into line with other vehicles of the same tier.

  • AP base damage decreased from 288 to 262
  • HE base damage decreased from 216 to 197
  • SC base damage decreased from 320 to 288

What is Public Test Server and how to join

Public Test Server is a special server running the newest version of the game. Its goal is to provide the players with the option to test the newest game build, although such builds often have more issues and bugs than the live server. It is now available for every player with Early Access without any restrictions. The main features of Public Test Server (compared to the Early Access server) are:

  • The progression is significantly faster in order for players to unlock the vehicles for testing
  • Tier 1-4 vehicles are awarded for free to every player
  • The server runs the latest version that can however contain more bugs than the live Early Access version
  • It is active only during certain hours (currently 8PM - 8AM CEST, 12PM-12AM PDT)

To join Public Test Server, please follow these easy steps:

  • Open the launcher (available in the download section)
  • On the upper bar, select "Game Directory"
  • From the games menu, select "Armored Warfare Public Test Server"
  • Download the PTS client (unfortunately a necessary step due to the fact the Early Access and the PTS servers are not running the same version of the game)

See you on the battlefield!
