Issues fixed[edit]

Game Crashing Randomly[edit]

This can occur if your stash and inventory is full or near full.
Clear out your stash back at base and keep your inventory and stash low if this happens. The crash will occur when a item drops from a enemy or object that is destroyed due to the game exceeding the item limit and not knowing what to do. Keeping these low can help prevent this.
