When does the Xbox version of this update go live?



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

Aw man, they reduced hunter claw damage. Fantastic what they've done to the smoker though.

Great changes. Looks like smoker can actually pull someone away from a group of turtled survivors. Dropping autoshotgun damage on tank is great as well.

This.  Now there can actually be some shock when a member of your group gets grabbed.

Eh, claw was much better.  You could get in and out really easily. Guess I'll have to work on those long pounces now.
