Sorry if this was gone over a lot in the past but I searched the forum for desert heat stroke and didn't really find anything about this kind of a change to it. And searched Google too. Just wanted to know to if it's a glitch in my favor or if the heat stroke debuff has been weakened a lot. Like it takes forever for heat stroke to have any effect on me in the desert. I'm level 11 and I returned after a over a year away. Now I can roam the whole desert without dying from heat stroke. Scorpions and soldiers still get me when I stop moving to stare at the view. I know I can't do much in missions at L11 in tough areas of the desert. But it's nice to explore around. And it's easy to run past most enemies. They don't seem to chase players for very long. They just give up and go back which is another topic of course.
