The introduction of Sniper mercenary Deadeye heralds the release of the last pilot in Dropzone's phase one. All five classes feature three unique pilots and an equal selection of Gear that compliments their play-style. This update also includes game fixes and balance changes to existing Gear.
Our latest update is a collection of important bug fixes to improve the player experience. Look for a new Sniper pilot in the coming weeks as we prepare to complete the class with its full collection of Gear.
Some highly anticipated fixes arrive in this week's update, including UI for the Command Grid when a Rig is dead and the ability to choose different Rig combinations when creating a custom lobby. Drop in and check out these features as well as new balance changes and bug fixes.
We're very excited to release our newest pilot, Shrapnel! A former soldier who underwent experimental procedures to save his life, he blames the Kavash for his condition and vows revenge. Shrapnel brings a new way of playing the Sniper to Dropzone: Siege mode. This release also includes the new ability to search for matches across multiple queues based on a variety of factors. Pick your mode, choose your Rigs, and head into the Dropzone!
For July 5th, we're releasing a new HUD design to support the recent leveling changes. Revisions of the in-game and Builder UI are WIP and will continue to change as we work to improve the game's overall feel and usability. Enjoy!
