The Finals has received a brand new update from developer Embark Studios. These are delivered on a regular basis almost per week, and, as per usual, they include balance changes as well as fixes and improvements. However, this time The Finals update 2.3.0 patch notes also include a warning about a known issue for all players when logging into the game.

One of the recent additions to the game is a fresh free skin part of the first Discord Quest. You only have a very limited amount of time to get the Skill Issue skin, so make sure to accept and complete the Discord Quest as soon as possible.

If you want even more freebies, there are two epic outfits and 12 weapon skins available to grab for free in a single bundle that has no expiry date. While the addition of the Skill Issue skin is neat, The Finals update 2.3.0 patch notes also include buffs for FAMAS along with slight improvements to the new map introduced at the beginning of Season 2.

The Finals update 2.3.0 patch notes

Below are the full patch notes for The Finals update 2.3.0:


    • Increased recoil curve recovery delay from 0.68 to 0.8
    • Increased recoil recovery time from 0.8 to 1
      Dev note: These changes cause automatic recoil recovery to kick in slightly later than before a player finishes firing. It helps prevent an issue where players who pressed the fire button slightly slower than other players felt they saw a very different recoil pattern for the gun


  • Power Shift
    • Added SYS$HORIZON to the map pool 
    • Enabled a new HUD 
    • The platform will now deal damage to players that are squished underneath it, to fix the issue where you could be pushed through the ground when trapped  


  • Fixed a bug where the revive tab and respawn coins were swapped in the scoreboard
  • Corrected an issue that made the Career Circuit page appear smaller after viewing rewards on console 
  • Fixed an issue where Bank Rabbit Bundle couldn’t be purchased via the outfit screen 


  • Added an end-of-match screen to indicate the change in rank
  • Added animations to the end-of-match rank screen to show when a player is close to going up or down in rank 

All of the above come courtesy of Embark Studios.

The Finals update 2.3.0 warning

Embark Studios has shared a warning about a known issue upon the release of update 2.3.0. Per the patch notes, there is a ‘known issue where all players will see the incorrect ranking the first time they boot the game’.

Fortunately, the developer says you can simply ignore the screen as it will ‘only show once and will not affect your actual ranking in any way’. The developer says that they decided to release the patch with this incorrect screen instead of holding off for another week.
