harthfire, many people assume a hotfix means a "patch without taking the servers down."A hotfix is applied to the servers only. It can only change values. If an enemy is doing too much damage, it can change the value. If something costs too much, or isn't being sold at a vendor, it can be changed. The term hotfix doesn't apply to patches.Anything the launcher downloads is not a hotfix. If they were streaming new patch data with the launcher, they would have fixed ALOT of the tooltip and other bugs since then. Seeing as how they just announced the 4.0.6 patch, with alot of tooltp changes. that means they weren't streaming a patch before.Like I said, it would be amazing if they could completely create a new item with a hotfix, but the ammo for the Red Rider BB gun was likely an unused item from before, they just activated, and put ona vendor.
