We're restoring the slow effect to Wattson's fences, introducing leaver penalties to Arenas, improving loot distribution for backpacks, and more!

Following the update, players will also be warned about abandon penalties before leaving a match. Respawn clarified that you'll only receive the penalty if you were in a full squad when you left the match, meaning you won't be punished for leaving after another teammate abandons first.
What do you guys think of this? Has anyone played?
