Issues fixed

Destillery bug

It usually happens in the map of the distillery that when climbing stairs the screen goes black or when you throw grenades the character falls off the map or the bot allies when climbing stairs disappear (that is, they fall of the map).
Run the game in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 3.[6]

Hospital mission failed

Occurs due to scripts breaking at framerates higher than 60 FPS.
Limit the frame rate to 60 FPS[citation needed]
Enable Vsync in Video options and set monitor refresh rate to 60 Hz.[citation needed]
