Hi-Rez devs have apparently moved at a blistering pace to build and fill out Dr. Disrespect’s custom map called ‘The Arena’ for Rogue Company, and new images make it seem like it will be ready to play before too long.

The saga all started back in August when Doc tried out Rogue Company for the first time. Impressed with the fast-paced multiplayer FPS, the streaming star half-jokingly suggested Hi-Rez devs should let him design a map for the game.

Developers were immediately on board, as you would be too if you got a similar offer from one of the biggest names on YouTube and a former CoD map designer like the Two Time.

Since then we’ve seen a steady drip of content showcasing the development of The Arena, which has basically become a playable version of Dr Disrespect’s elaborate stream backdrop, complete with a gift shop that we finally got to see on Oct. 12.

The Champion’s Club Pro Gear Shop is one of those video game locations you just wish were real.

Any true multi-million (or billion) dollar sporting complex needs a place to sell officially branded memorabilia, and The Champion’s Club Arena is no different.

The Pro-Gear shop might seem like it could use a few more racks of clothing and merch, but remember it does have to be a playable and easy to navigate map as well.

One area we’ve seen a bit of already is the Arcade, but a new exterior shot could provide another new clue to the map as well. In the image below, the sky appears to be red, which would make this map fit canonically into Doc’s stream.

If you look past the Arcade sign, the sky above the Arena seems to be red.

You’ve got to give the people something to look at as they walk in to find their seats too, and the main entrance area to the inside of The Arena is decked out with Doc’s face and branding.

We really can’t wait to try Doc’s custom Rogue Company map out.

These latest images from Hi-Rez are some of the most detailed we’ve seen yet, and could very well be a sign that The Arena will be coming out sometime soon.

When exactly is tough to say, but Rogue Company has been seemingly getting constant updates over the last few months, so stick with us on Twitter @RogueCoUpdates for all the latest news, patches, and more.


Insane Overwatch Junkertown spot lets Widowmaker shoot through walls

Overwatch players looking to take the high ground on Junkertown second should beware of a sneaky wall where Widowmaker players can shoot through to score headshots.

Widowmaker thrives when she can dominate at a range and use her one-shot one-kill snipes to her advantage. The very threat of potentially having your head taken off from a mile away forces players to act differently.

Junkertown is one of the maps where the hero gets the most value with its long sightlines leading to all sorts of pick-off potential. And, as it turns out, some walls on its second point can be shot through if timed right.

As Twitch streamer Kragiee showed, while playing as Torbjorn, he attempted to duel a Widow at range and called it out to his team.

Widowmaker’s ability to one shot heroes is a massive threat.

After his turret was destroyed, the player started using the hammer’s melee and ended up getting shot right through the wall, confusing his chat.

“WHAT?” many viewers wrote, trying to make sense of what they had just witnessed.

Once the dust had settled and the match ended, the streamer reviewed what just happened using the replay viewer.

Amusingly, Kragiee’s hammer and claw seemed to have clipped through the wall, causing the Widow player to see exactly where he was.

However, while the hammer and claw may have clipped through, it didn’t explain why or how the Widow was able to score a headshot onto the Torb.

As some users pointed out in the chat, there seems to be a small gap where the character fired her shot that allowed the bullet to go through the wall and connect onto the Swedish builder hero.

It’s also possible that Torbjorn’s head clipped through just enough so that he was vulnerable despite technically being on the other side.

Regardless, it’s something that both all players should be aware of in the event they find themselves in a duel on the second point and need any advantage they can get.
