Posted on September 2, 2011 AT 12:00am

Guerrilla has today announced that they will be launching patch 1.12 for Killzone 3 next week.

The patch will be coming Tuesday, September 6th and will introduce a number of community requested changes.

You can check out the full patch notes below.

Careers:

- Changed Marksman’s scramble ability into an active ability – The marksman scramble ability now needs to be activated and deactivated via the d-pad, and has a cooldown period.

- Increased tracking response for engineer turrets – The turn speed of turrets has been increased, allowing them to track players more easily.

- Increased armor for engineer turrets (30%) – Turrets can still be destroyed by a single explosion from a grenade or missile launcher.

Weapons:

- Improved StA-2 Battle Pistol – Detonation time for the StA-2 Battle Pistol’s grenade is shorter, and the damage it deals is more severe.

Maps:

- Added realtime projector to MP15 Radec Academy – A realtime projector has been added to the theater room, projecting onto the large wall with two doors.

Sound:

- Toned down overly enthusiastic death screams – Aieeeeaaargh!

Matches:

- Increased mission points in Warzone – There is more of an incentive to go after mission objectives now.

- Doubled cooldown time on mortars – Cooldown time was increased from 30 to 60 seconds to avoid spamming the Search & Destroy mission area.

- Fixed tournaments not ending as soon as one clan leaves.

- Fixed clans being able to rejoin games that were already finished – Clans used these exploits to boost their game wins and climb the leaderboards.

- Reduced wait time at end of the round – The wait time was brought down from 60 to 45 seconds.

- Reduced pre-game wait time at end of the round – The wait time was brought down from 30 to 20 seconds.

Interface:

- Added menu option to disable Sixaxis-only actions – Sixaxis-only actions can now be switched off in the menu, so players only have to press ‘O’ to start an action. This will make Killzone 3 more accessible to disabled players.

- Added map name to spawn screen – The map name can be seen in the top left, under the titles.
