Hi-Rez devs are apparently very hard at work on Dr Disrespect’s custom “Arena” map for Rogue Company, with new concept sketches of the map that finally fill out the Champion’s Club.
At this point, it’s no secret that streaming superstar Dr Disrespect is a pretty big fan of Rogue Company, with the Two-Time Blockbuster video game champion playing often on stream, and even designing his own map for the game.
It seems they’ve been hard at work too because concept sketches for the completed Arena were tweeted by Doc fresh from his fax machine, and yes, it does look like we’re getting a giant statue of the streamer himself.
New Arena concepts have been received via the fax machine @RogueCompany.
Doc’s Arena map honestly seems to be shaping up as an actual, video game incarnation of his legendary stream backgrounds and settings scattered around the Champion’s Club Arena. Rogue Company themselves said that a VIP Entrance, Infinity Pools, and Champion’s Club lounge would all be included, but not “admission for little Timmy with the blonde bangs.”
As we mentioned earlier, the development of Dr Disrespect’s Arena map seems to be going pretty quickly, and we could see the map arrive in-game fairly soon, once a full 3D model is completed and play-tested.
The idea of battling it out with plenty of speed, violence, and momentum under the watchful eye of a giant, solid gold Doc hasn’t gotten any less appealing since the first designs for the map came out, and we can’t wait to battle it out inside of the Champion’s Club itself when The Arena finally does make its debut.
Rogue Company’s latest content patch has finally brought the highly anticipated ranked mode to the game. The update also introduces a new Rogue and plenty of balance changes to Hi-Rez’s 4v4 shooter. Here’s everything you need to know.
Rogue Company players have been waiting for a ranked mode ever since the game launched, but now fans can finally flex their prowess to the world. While the newly launched competitive mode may still be in beta, it’s certainly a welcome addition to the game. However, the ranked mode is not the only thing fans have to look forward to.
The latest update has also introduced a new Rogue to the game’s ever-growing roster. There are also a number of tweaks to existing maps, weapons, and characters. Here’s everything you need to know about Rogue Company’s All the Fixins Update.
The Fixer is the latest Rogue to join the team.
As the name suggests, the Fixer is known for his precision and high attention to detail. He is a peerless marksman that uses his deadly bolt action rifle to solve every problem. You can read up on all his weapons and abilities in the detailed patch notes below:
The Tyr is a bolt action .50 Caliber sniper rifle.
Body Damage: 70
Fire Rate: 3.85
Mag Size: 2
Reload Time: 2.4
A low profile and lightweight semi-automatic firearm with a fast rate of fire.
Body Damage: 21
Fire Rate: 6.9
Mag Size: 15
Reload Time: 1.7
Thermal Vision: While activated, see enemy heat signatures for a duration.

You’ll need to be at the top of your game if you wish to climb the RoCo ranked ladder.
Rogue Company’s ranked mode has finally made its long-awaited debut in the All the Fixins update. In this mode, those who have reached level 30 can face off against players of similar skill levels and work their way to the top of the rankings.
It will take a lot of skill and dedication if you wish to beat the game’s best, so don’t expect any casual games here. Hi-Rez will be adding more features to its ranked mode in the future, but for now, here’s everything you need to know:
Players must be Level 30 to participate in this mode.
Players can earn up to Ranked Level 30 through experience
Experience is gained from winning matches in Ranked mode however you will lose experience for losses.
There are rewards for playing 30 Ranked matches and reaching Ranked Level 30 during the Beta.
Ranked Beta will be played in the Demolition game mode.
Ranked Beta will not use the current skill-based matchmaking and will prioritize matches where players have comparable skill ratings.
Players will be able to queue in this mode in any sized party.
Ranked Beta matches will award 10% more Mastery experience.
