Fatshark has released the 1.0.2 update for Warhammer: Vermintide 2. It appears that it fixes many issues, including some balance tweaks, such as the Troll nerfs. One of the main reasons for this update is the Heroic Deeds bug, and no longer persist in the game.
Furthermore, the update increases the game’s stability by extinguishing some of the known issues that were causing crashes. Despite the many changes, there are still some of the problems still present in the game, and they will remain until the next update releases.
