Rogue Company - Cinematic Teaser: The Fixer

Perhaps the most exciting changes that Fixer brings to the game is his new Cluster Smoke gadgets and his unique abilities. His Passive Ability is called Shrapnel Rounds, and every time he damages an enemy with a firearm, they will be slowed for a duration of time.

Fixer’s Active Ability is a bit more exciting. Thermal Vision will cause enemy heat signatures to appear for a period of time when activated. Combine this with his sniper loadout and this might be the best new option for players who prefer to sit back and pick off the pack from a distance.

Did he carry the throne out there for this?

In addition to the new character, all players above level 30 now have access to Ranked Beta, a mode designed to test your skills and prove your worth. Eventually featuring full seasons and rewards, currently Ranked will grant players 10% extra Mastery experience, and more rewards will become available for those who play 30 Ranked matches and reach Ranked Level 30 during the beta.

There’s also plenty of quality of life changes, such as some asset cleanup and adjustment on certain maps to improve the flow of the game. Some minor changes were made to weapons and some bugs were taken care of. Something that is a new change that the devs would like feedback on is a change to the Headstrong perk.

This perk pertains to Anvil, Dallas, Gl1tch, Scorch, The Fixer, and Trench. After taking damage and while standing still, players may now repair their armor. It takes three seconds, ends if they move, and they must recover their weapon afterward. It’ll be interesting to see how this affects gameplay, especially with the inclusion of Ranked matches.
