One of the major parts of Rogue Company is upgrading weapons, gadgets, and perks between rounds with your hard-earned cash, and we have everything you need to know to head into each match with the best loadout to take down the enemy team.

Similar to games like CS:GO and Valorant, Rogue Company is based on purchasing weapons, upgrades, gadgets, and perks each round, as you advance through the match.

The twist is, however, that everything sticks around even if you die, so you don’t have to worry about constantly re-buying your loadout each and every round you get eliminated.

If you’re not constantly upgrading your kit though, you run the risk of falling behind opponents and going into rounds at a disadvantage. To help you dominate matches, even more, devs have put together a great primer video on how buying works in Rogue Company, and we’ll break it all down below.

To start, you can’t buy anything if you don’t have money. Luckily though there are plenty of ways to earn cash during rounds, these include downing enemies, assisting teammates,  planting the objective, and yes, reviving allies as well.

The better you do in a round, the more upgrades and weapons you can afford, pretty simple right? To make it even easier, you can actually sell items you didn’t mean to purchase and get the money back by pressing Ctrl+Z on PC.

In the store itself, players are able to purchase and upgrade primary and secondary weapons, gadgets, melee weapons, and various perks to fit your playstyle. Don’t go all-in on perks too early though, as you’re weapons and gadget upgrades are arguably a more important part of your kit.

Weapons and gadgets can be upgraded to increase clip size, damage, area of effect, and more.

When it comes to spending that hard-earned cash, there are several routes you can take. In the pistol round at the beginning of each half for example, instead of upgrading your sidearm, it might be better to purchase some kind of gadget like a lethal grenade if you want to play aggressively. If you prefer to play it safe though it’s smart to save all your money so you can afford a primary weapon in the second round, whether you win or lose.

Another good tip is to only consider buying perks once you have a semi-decent loadout with a primary weapon, sidearm, and a gadget, then choosing the perk that will help you most, depending on your playstyle and how the enemy team is playing.

Hopefully, this rundown gives you a better idea of how the in-game economics work and gets you thinking about the ideal setup for your Rogue of choice. As always, be sure to follow us on Twitter @RogueCoUpdates For more Rogue Company tips & tricks, leaks, info, news, and more.

Rogue Company teases new pics of Dr Disrespect’s map The Arena

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.
