The natural order is restored. Everyone's happy. It’s called “classic weapon placement” and adds the option to all modes in the game. Also in the new update is a photo mode you can access via the pause menu (where all good photo modes live), so expect to see plenty of artfully framed gory headshots on Twitter by the end of the week. 

As well as that, there’s a few weapon balances for multiplayer, some fixes and some new stuff for Snapmap - you can now turn shootable triggers on and off for example, add sky props and more. Check the blog (opens in new tab) for all the details.
