Companion Spectating System: Now an eliminated teammate can transform into a companion by taking up the avatar of a pet and get a view of the match from the companion's POV. The companion will be visible to teammates only, and the companion himself will not be able to see or hear any enemies.

Tactical Attachment Applicable Mode Updates: Players can now attach a gun shield on firearms like M249 that will protect them from incoming damage at the cost of reduced area of view. 

Full movement speed on SMGs: This is a huge update for close combat lovers as you can now fire and sprint at the same time using SMGs. There will be absolutely no movement penalties for these guns, making it an absolute favorite in crosshair duels.

Throwables Improvements: Grenades and all the other throwables now come with improved animation, reduced recoil, and other basic updates.
