[Insurgency: Sandstorm]Insurgency Sandstorm Update 1.7.1 Patch Notes: Knife Animation, Transparent Magazine, And More Added

Update time:2021-07-19 04:44Tag:

  Insurgency: Sandstorm is now slightly more realistic, thanks to the update 1.7.1 released yesterday as part of Operation Clean Sweep. The update is mostly geared toward bug fixes and improving?game optimization, however, some small features have also been added.

  Sandstorm will now have a transparent magazine for the G36K. Several LMGs like the MG3, PKM, M240B, and M249 now have a speed reload feature and new first-person knife animations are introduced. The brightness of reticles when using night-vision goggles is increased and a new animation has been added when a character is blinded. These changes might not be very big, however, they will go a long way.

  The highlights of the patch are mentioned below. You can check out the complete patch notes form the official site.
