Ubisoft has released the first patch update for it’s free-to-play shooter XDefiant. The patch is being billed as “Preseason Patch 1”, and tackles just a few issues within the game since its launch on May 21.

A couple of the updates include Netcode improvements and spawning issues in the Practice Zone. You can see the full patch notes below.

Full XDefiant Patch 1 Notes

Game Modes 

  • Sometimes players loading into the Practice Zone would spawn outside the world, in a hellscape, and now they (probably) will not. 


  • Fixed an issue where if the player died during the device deployment animation, their next deployed device would drop at their feet rather than be thrown as intended. 


  • That issue where you’d get hitmarkers on an enemy as they killed you, but their health bar still appeared full to you? The health bar display was wrong – you did damage them. Should be fixed now. 


  • Fixed an issue where end-of-match UI text would display with the wrong orientation in Arabic. 


  • We’ve turned the Practice Zone back on but it’s possible weird things could still happen. 
  • Fixed an issue that was causing low framerates with some AMD GPUs.
