Bethesda just released a new update for Doom Eternal, solving some bugs and introducing some Battlemode improvements.

In a part of the Battlemode improvements, you find the Weapon Quick Switch return, network latency, Mancubus ability to shoot after a double jump, and many more!

Here’s a list of the updates taken from Bethseda’s Doom Eternal official page:

New Game Improvements
• Weapon Quick Switch has been enabled again in both Campaign and Battlemode (Thanks again for your passionate community feedback!)
• Made further improvements to networking latency in Battlemode
• Added the ability for the Mancubus to shoot after starting a double jump in Battlemode
• Maykr Drones have been added back into some loadouts in Battlemode bonus loot drops have been removed from headshots against the Maykr Drone in B

New Batllemode Balance Updates

As mentioned earlier, the Doom Eternal 2.1 update introduces a lot of patches and fixes for the primary campaign.

Here’s a list of the patches below:

• Fixed an issue with the Gladiator failing to drop health while staggered
• Fixed an issue with the Khan Maykr failing to drop health when Blood Punched
• I also fixed a rare issue where AI became invulnerable after a failed Glory Kill.
• Fixed issues with the Cacodemon not responding appropriately to Meathook or Blood Punch attacks while choking on a grenade
• Fixed an issue with Zombies ragdolling incorrectly when killed
• They also fixed Baron of Hell leg animations displaying incorrectly in certain circumstances.
• Fixed a graphics issue with the gibs that display when Glory Killing the Archvile from the front
• Fixed an Extra Life Mode issue that caused extra lives to be removed during the Revenant gameplay sequence in Cultist Base
• They also fixed an issue causing notifications for rewards to display repeatedly.
• Fixed an issue where challenges would be displayed on screen for an extended period if another problem were completed while displayed

The fixes are much, like the remaining below:

• Fixed a crash in Battlemode when backing out of a private match
• Fixed a crash in Batllemode on the Round Upgrade menu
• Also fixed an issue in B where selecting a demon simultaneously would display podiums incorrectly.
• Fixed an issue in Battlemode where the Marauder’s wolf didn’t always deal damage and explode when attacking.

The Slayer
• Fixed an issue in Battlemode with the Damage Report displaying incorrect damage numbers
• Also fixed an issue in Battlemode that would cause health/ammo loot visuals to persist when Loot Block was used while the slayer was chainsawing AI.
• Fixed several descriptions for Battlemode Round Upgrades to more accurately reflect current functionality
• Fixed an issue in Battlemode where level progress would sometimes display incorrectly to other players in the lobby

Battlemode Fixes
• Fixed an issue in Battlemode that would cause the title to crash when loading into a match with HDR enable d on some graphics cards
• Also fixed a rare crash when the Archvile teleported while the BFG was equipped in Battlemode.
• Fixed an issue in Battlenode where enemy hit sound effects would revert to default after installing a new game patch

Doom Eternal is currently available on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 globally. By the way, Bethesda is offering the game at a deeply discounted price at the moment, so there’s no better time than now to get it and join the wagon.
