Star Wars: Squadrons v4.2 patch notes - Aim assist fix, Concussion Missile nerf, and more

Motive Studios has given the TIE defender a huge nerf in the 4.2 version, read all about it down below.

Fans of Star Wars: Squadrons, the multiplayer-focused flying combat simulator, will be happy to know that developer Motive Studios has addressed some important balancing issues with patch 4.2.

One of them, the so-called "invincible drifting" which took advantage of faulty aim-assist, has been fixed, meaning players that abuse this bug will have to resort to playing fair from now on.

On top of this, the TIE Defender's Concussion Missile has seen a huge nerf, with its cooldown usage moved from 2.3 seconds to 6.
