The first 2 are pretty much quality-of-life update, with skills and grenades getting easier to use. The last part is probably familiar to anyone who has played other shooters - a player can crouch so that another could jump on top of him.

Various buffs and nerfs to weapons - the most notable change here is probably the Kar98k's Aim Assist range reduction - hitting targets would be much harder now.
