Update 6.00 Patch Notes

Guild Card Issues & Banned Word List

  • Certain poses and expressions cannot be selected when using a full armor set or layered armor related to the Horizon Zero Dawn or The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt collaborations.
    • If you have these poses or expressions already selected, they will be reverted back to the default “Crossed Arms” pose and “Expression 1” expression.
    • Expressions 6, 7, and 20 cannot be used in combination with the Aloy alpha full armor set, Aloy gamma full armor set, or the Aloy layered armor. There are currently no poses that cannot be used related to the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration.
  • New words have been added to the banned word list for Simplified Chinese.
    • For those whose player name or Palico’s name is now banned they have an chance to edit it prior to this update
    • If a squad name contains a newly added banned word, the name will be replaced by asterisks, as squad names cannot be changed.

Player & Weapons Bug Fixes

  • A bug has been fixed that allowed players to use an item unintentionally.
  • When a weapon is drawn, players can either press Square (X) two times to sheathe their weapon and consume an item, or hold down Square (X) once to do both actions consecutively. However, if the Dash Settings are changed to allow running by using both the L3 (LS) and R1 (RB) buttons, players could use an item unintentionally if they held down the L3 (LS) button while tapping the Square button (X). This has been fixed so that tapping the Square button will not consume an item if the player is holding down a dash button.
  • A bug has been fixed that caused the Speed Crawler effect to stop working properly after update Ver. 5.21 (PS4) / 5.2.1.0 (Xbox One). It is now working as intended.

Dual Blades/Hammer/Hunting Horn/Insect Glaive/Light Bowgun/Heavy Bowgun

  • A bug has been fixed where a neutral attack would be performed when the player executed an attack with the left stick and the attack button while the player character was in the middle of a turning animation.
  • However, when the player character performs a Charged Upswing or Charged Brutal Upswing when turning while charging power, the design of the attack adds movement to the player motion when the game determines that they are holding the left stick forward. In this situation, players can perform a neutral Charged Upswing if they input the attack fast enough, and is not considered a bug.

Switch Axe

  • A bug has been fixed where the damage bonus from the Assassin’s Hood specialized tool only applied to the first attack of the Switch Axe’s Left Rising Slash in Sword mode instead of all 3 attacks.

Charge Blade

  • A bug has been fixed where the visual and sound effect of the Condensed Element Slash would play during a Rising Slash when the player releases the Triangle button (Y button on Xbox One) just before Condensed Element Slash finishes charging.

Insect Glaive

  • A bug has been fixed where the Quick Sheath skill would not activate when sheathing the weapon while the Kinsect is flying.

Light Bowgun/Heavy Bowgun

  • A bug has been fixed where ammo listed with a Fast or Normal reload speed would not automatically reload when aiming the Light Bowgun or Heavy Bowgun and pressing Triangle (Y button on Xbox One) just after aiming the weapon. It has been fixed so that it automatically reloads like ammo with a Slow or Very Slow reload speed.

 Miscellaneous Bug Fixes

  • An update in Ver. 5.20 (PS4) / Ver. 5.2.0.0 (Xbox One) accidentally changed the effective sound range of some slinger ammo, making it difficult to lure monsters. It has been changed back to the values from before Ver. 5.10 (PS4) / Ver. 5.1.0.0 (Xbox One).
  • Those affected were
    • Scatternut (smaller range)
    • Flash Pod (smaller range)
    • Screamer Pod (smaller range)
    • Brightmoss (larger range)
  • A bug has been fixed where a monster would be lured to a player’s position instead of the location where a slinger was fired during multiplayer quests.
  • A bug has been fixed on the Arch-tempered Kulve Taroth Kjárr weapons with the Critical Status skill, where the abnormal status values weren’t corrected properly when a critical hit landed.
  • A bug has been fixed on the Arch-tempered Kulve Taroth Kjárr weapons with the Critical Element skill, where the elemental attacks were corrected using both elemental damage values and abnormal status values when a critical hit landed.
  • A bug has been fixed that allowed those playing the Arch-tempered Kulve Taroth siege to receive siege rewards without breaking its horns, if they were online for over 8 hours and playing the siege at the 8-hour mark.
  • A bug was fixed that caused the Kulve Taroth appraisal weapons to be sorted in a strange manner when sorting equipment via Weapon Tree. This issue affected Long Sword, Sword & Shield, Dual Blades, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Lance, Gunlance, Switch Axe, Charge Blade and Bow.
  • A bug has been fixed that would not let players skip the opening cutscene during the Fury of El Dorado quest because the data containing if players skipped the cutscene wasn’t correctly delivered and process if it arrived before the cutscene started playing on someone’s console.
  • A bug has been fixed where the position of the item used to command Palicoes was changed in the item window and saved, but would be different once you went back to the game from the title screen.
  • A bug has been fixed where the player would be discovered by Gastodon when hitting them with slinger ammo or shooting near them, even if the player is wearing the Ghillie Mantle or hiding in the bushes.
    • Please note that even though this bug has been fixed, by design the player will be discovered again if the player is discovered and then hides using the Ghillie Mantle or in the bushes and fires at the Gastodon.
  • This update also includes other minor bug fixes.

Bug Fixes Stemming from Localization Issues

English/French/Italian/German/Spanish/Russian/Brazilian Portuguese/Polish/Arabic

  • In all languages except for Asian languages, the Assassin’s Hood specialized tool had two description text variations, but one of them failed to mention that damage to the monster would be increased.

    Previous description text:
    Increases movement speed and allows you to hide quicker. Lasts until you deal damage to a monster caught unaware.

    New description text:
    Increases movement speed and allows you to hide quicker. Deals big damage to a monster caught unaware, then the effect ends.

Brazilian Portuguese

  • In Polish, the translation for the new Kjárr Hammer “Gyre” weapon differed from existing naming conventions, so it has been fixed.

    Previous name: Młot kjárra: Wir
    New name:Młot kjárra „Uragaan”

    Please note that this weapon has not disappeared, merely renamed.

Traditional and Simplified Chinese

  • A mistranslation of “roar” has been fixed in Traditional and Simplified Chinese.

    Previous translation: 咆嘯
    New translation: 咆哮

    Note: Both languages use the same translation.

  • A mistranslation of “一括” in both Traditional and Simplified Chinese has been fixed. The previous translation was used in the quest result, item swap and character edit screen and was translated as “one time” instead of “group”.

    Previous translation: 一次
    New translation: 全部

    Note: Both languages use the same translation.

Traditional Chinese

  • Duplicate guild card titles were found in Traditional Chinese, so a number of translations have been updated.

    Japanese -> Previous translation (if applicable)-> New translation
    「人」 → 「人」 → 「中人」
    「マン」 → 「人」
    「ミー」 → 「我」 → 「自我」
    「わたし」 → 「我」
    「テオ」 → 「炎」 → 「炎王」
    「炎」 → 「炎」

    If you were using the 「人」「我」「炎」 guild card titles, they may have been changed without notice. Please double check your guild card info to see if you were affected.

  • Several Charge Blade attack names and status translations were fixed to be consistent with each other.

    Previous Translation: 高出力屬性解放斬
    New Translation: 高輸出屬性解放斬

    Previous Translation: 超高出力屬性解放斬
    New Translation: 超高輸出屬性解放斬

    Previous Translation: 高出力狀態
    New Translation: 高輸出狀態

  • The translation for 集會區域櫃檯小姐 has been changed to 集會區域接待員 in all applicable areas of the game.
  • The translation for “add-on content” has been changed.stent with each other.
