Wasteland 3 –  Update 1.1.1 Patch Notes

Performance and Stability

  • We’ve made over a dozen individual changes aimed at improving performance and stability, especially on consoles.
    • We’re continuing work on additional improvements for future updates.
  • Some slight load time improvements have been made.
    • We’re finalizing some more impactful load time reductions which you’ll see in a future patch.
  • Fixed an issue where if computer consoles were used during combat, game performance would decrease.
  • Performance has been improved when using Precision Strike.


  • Load screen hangs (i.e. 33% load bug) have largely been resolved for co-op games.
    • In a few cases the load bar may appear to be stuck at 33% but will eventually load after 5 or more minutes. We’re aware and actively working to resolve these.
  • Addressed an issue with the Direct Connect option that was preventing some guests from connecting to their hosts.
  • Fixed crash that could occur in co-op while players engaged with Major Prasad.
  • Players with different build versions are now blocked from playing with each other.
  • [Xbox One] Resolved an issue where the user would not be able to join a second game if it was hosted by the same person.

Wasteland 3 Update 1.1.1 – Quests and Gameplay Improvements

    • This closes a loophole in which Scrap could be simply bought and sold for a profit using the Antiques Appraiser perk. We found that in some cases the perk was giving players far too much money when Scrap was included.
    • Of note, this change will not be reflected in the text descriptions until a subsequent patch.The Antiques Appraiser perk no longer triggers on Scrap.
  • Antiques Appraiser now has a 5% chance to multiply the value of Junk by 40x, down from 50x.
  • A persistent issue with the Fishlips encounter which would result in the game locking up has been resolved.
  • Resolved an issue where the epilogue song would sometimes not play all the way through.
  • Merchants now round up item values, instead of down. Buying in bulk is always better!
  • Liberty’s Warbots are now immune to hacking, which should make her appropriately more challenging.
  • Resolved an issue where the Survival Skill was granting Animal Whisperer abilities.
  • Resolved an issue where some missions related to the Gippers were unable to be completed under specific conditions.
  • Resolved an issue where players were being charged the correct amount of skill points on purchase, but the tooltip and the bar were using the wrong value to calculate/display the cost.
