Farm Chokepoint Removed

One of the biggest changes that will please players is the update to removal of the Farm chokepoint.

Respawn have said they've listened to players, who were finding it a frustrating spot on the map. They promise that removing it will provide "more breathing space between towns and one less hotspot for people to ambush from."

On top of these changes there are also new Observation Towers that provide amazing coverage for snipers, with the caveat that they need to be raised by players, and doing so will alert everyone nearby.

Finally, many of the loot bunker across the map have been replaced by Explosive Holds, new loot containers that can be accessed with the use of one of your precious grenades.
