That’s right no more ARTIFACTS! What’s an artifact? Artifacts, also known as “screen tearing” or “graphical glitches”, were those horrible effects that would happen when you would approach a military area that was littered with dead soldiers with no loot.

The bodies would cause very strange random lines and polygons to appear causing you not to be able to see anything in the area.

Rocket posted this image on his twitter showing how the bodies no longer cause artifacts:
