Not sure whether it’s a bug or not, but on some maps (Weather Control and Orbital Drill come to mind) the compass is wrong and corrects itself as soon as you jump out of the dropship. The compass starts off saying North is straight ahead and then it corrects itself as you jump out. Would be really nice if it was fixed.
I think it doesn’t actually works till you hit the ground on any map.
It definitely does. On some maps it starts out wrong though, which is really annoying for call-outs.
I don’t pay much attention to it to be honest.
You get a nice sky eye view up there, would be nice to give accurate warnings.
