7 Days to Die A21.1 B16 Stable: Additions, Changes, & Bug Fixes

Posted on by justin
The Fun Pimps, the developer for 7 Days to Die, continues to put on their thinking caps and listen to player feedback to improve their zombie survival title. Recently, the devs released A21.1 B16 Stable for 7 Days to Die, and it brings a plethora of enhancements and fixes for players to experience.

What’s in the 7 Days to Die A21.1 B16 Stable Update? – Patch Notes Highlights

The recently released patch A21.1 B16 Stable for 7 Days to Die focuses on the game’s nuances instead of overhauling its systems or adding massive content or features. For instance, Twitch streamers can now share their in-game experiences in their streams. First, Twitch streamers can now change prices for Twitch Actions through the in-game Twitch Info screen. Next, streamers can also reset the prices for all Twitch Actions from the Twitch Options screen. Additionally, zombie hits are more forgiving than before, thanks to the new BuffInjuryBleedingCooldown function. With it, players now gain resistance from bleeding, reducing consecutive bleeds. Also, exploding vehicles now drop a loot bag filled with various goodies. The patch also adds new audio to certain features. Players with good hearing may notice the new sounds from the dew collector and various nest actions. Some changes brought by this patch are also worth mentioning. One adjustment is that iron and steel tools and weapons now overlap in a Tier 1 Trader Stage. Also, players may now find a Tier 1 Wrench from salvaging a car from the 7 Days to Die A21.1 B16 Stable update.
