Rogue Company's Latest Update

By Lisa MacLean on 17th August 2020

Rogue Company's latest update has a bunch of new fixes and adjustments that we think will really help to improve the game immensely! Hi-Rez has added a new map into the mix known as Vice, you will now be penalised for Deserting or AFKing and there is now a Shooting Range to get those practise shots in before you jump into multiplayer. Check out all the updates, patches and fixes below:

General Updates & fixes


-  Mean to select a different Perk? No problem! Players now have the option to use the Undo Purchase feature in the Item Shop!
-  New Gyro control options are now available
-  New KBM Keybinding support for Left-handed players can be found in the settings menu
-  New visual options are available to provide support for Colorblindness.

Shooting Range


Even elite Rogue’s need practice and what better place to do this than a shooting range? Try various weapons, abilities and rogues to prepare yourself for your next mission.

Strikeout Changes


-  Bleedout Rate increased from 9 seconds to 12 seconds.
-  Slightly reduced the radius at which enemies influence spawns.
-  Slightly increased the radius at which friendlies influence spawns.

Deserter/AFK Penalty System


In order to provide a more fair experience for players, Vice Update will implement a new system to discourage leaving matches early and going AFK. Please note specific penalties could change based on data and feedback.

To be eligible for a deserter penalty a player must fall within one of the following categories:

-  Left Match Early – A player who leaves a full party (not through disconnection)
-  AFK – A player who has met our inactivity criteria (hasn’t taken a valid action) for approximately 2 minutes.
-  Disconnected – A player who has disconnected for at least 5 minutes before the match ends.

Upon meeting one of these criteria a player will be unable to queue for a match for a period of time-based on the number of offences. Players will see a timer denoting how long until they are able to queue again.

-  1st offense = 5 minutes
-  2nd offense = 15 minutes
-  3rd offense = 30 minutes
-  4th offense = 3 hours
