Sniper Elite VR | Tuesday 13 July Patch Notes

July 13th 2021

Snipers, we continue to make our way through a number of issues raised by the Community over the last few days. Our latest Patch which is now live, addresses Oculus Quest specifically with the full patch notes listed below.

Full Quest Patch Notes:

  • Oculus have confirmed that they suffered an outage that affected all new installs from the store. This blocked some players from being able to install Sniper Elite VR following purchase. This should now be rectified.

  • We have now revised the tutorial for usage of Aim Focus and have added tutorial pages for pistols and SMGs

  • In the ‘Resistance Base’ mission, the prompt to equip the weapon now appears correctly after reaching the location
  • When a player is navigating the scrapbook, the content of the 'Active loadout' will no longer appear and disappear when the player switches to the loadout page using the bookmark from every alternative page.
  • The non-scoped version of the Mosin Nagant, Lee Enfield, and Spring Field rifles are now available in their respective locations in the game

  • A gap on the Springfield scope lens has now been fixed
