A new Rogue Company patch has arrived and it includes the highly anticipated ranked mode. Since the game went free to play, developers have kept making improvements. The patch, known as the Fixins update, adds a new Rogue into the mix, addresses some bugs and more.
The Fixer is the latest Rogue to be added into the game. His primary weapon is a bolt action sniper named the Tyr. The .50 Caliber sniper rifle deals 70 body damage, has a 3.85 fire rate. The sniper rifle range of 50 meters, making it quite powerful. Also, the magazine size is 2, with a reload time of 2.4 seconds. Next, the secondary weapon equipped by this Rogue is a semi-automatic weapon with a fast fire rate. Although it deals less body damage than the sniper rifle, the lightweight weapon has better handling which is useful for close range engagements.
Next, the gadgets are a new cluster some and the classic C4, allowing for a more stealthy approach. The Fixer’s active ability is thermal vision, which allows you to see enemy heat signatures. Undoubtedly, this can prove to be game changing. Finally, his passive ability is shrapnel rounds that slow down the enemy when you deal damage to them with a weapon.
Other Rogues getting in on the action
Also, some changes have been made to other already existing Rogues. For Glitch, the bounce back perk has been replaced by Tenacity perk which will see you take reduced damage from explosives. Another important fix has been applied to Ronin, meaning the ballistic knife will no longer be used up if a player reclaims or equips it for use. The headstrong perk update impacts a large number of Rogues. Now, when your armor is damaged, you will get a prompt to repair it when you are standing still. The total repair time is three seconds, and the animation is similar to when you are reviving a player. For clarity, there will be a distinct audio notification throughout the repair process.
Ranked play is finally here in beta form. To participate and earn rewards, you have to reach level 30. You will be competing Rogue Company’s main mode, Demolition. Ranked play differs from regular matches as it will match you with players who have a similar skill set to you. By playing ranked matches, you will receive 10% more mastery experience.
