Yes, you read that right

A nifty — but unintentional — power has been nerfed out of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order with the game’s latest patch. That’s right, you can no longer destroy rockets using the game’s photo mode.

Shortly after photo mode was patched into the game, on Dec. 11, players discovered a useful exploit: When an enemy fires a rocket at Cal, going into photo mode mid-flight and running the camera over the rocket will blow it up. Some likened this to an extension of Cal’s ability to Force-manipulate rockets but, nah, ain’t supposed to work like that.

Photo mode’s camera also needed a fix because “it could interact with trigger volumes within the levels that could potentially break the game,” Respawn Entertainment wrote in the patch notes. “We’ve fixed this to ensure that you can continue playing the game after using Photo Mode.”

There are several other bug fixes in the latest patch for Jedi: Fallen Order on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One; also of note, the orange lightsaber pre-order exclusive has now been unlocked for all players.
