It’s all about the laughs. New World has recently suffered from a nasty Hatchet bug that allows players to stack their damage to 300% extra, which traverses to a horrible PvP environment. Outpost Rush queues are currently full of them, and it’s a priority fix AGS still hasn’t addressed.

I could only imagine what would happen in wars, as Amazon Games is already two days late on fixing this issue.
