Rogue Company’s latest patch finally brings some much-needed player profile customization features to the table. But that’s not all. It comes packed with gameplay tweaks and changes as well. Here’s everything you need to know.

Rogue Company is one of the freshest games in the scene. The open beta was a success, and now that it has been officially released, the free-to-play third-person shooter is growing in popularity each day.

The developers have been working hard to keep up with the hopes and expectations of the game’s player base, and the latest patch finally adds something they’ve all wanted: player profile customization.

Here’s everything you need to know about Rogue Company’s Secret Identity update, starting with when it will hit live servers.

When is the Rogue Company Secret Identity update?

In preparation for the patch, Rogue Company’s servers will go offline today at 4:00 AM ET (08:00 UTC). It’s expected to be down for at least ten hours, the patch will most likely be ready to go at 3:00 PM ET (19:00 UTC).

Player Identity

Players can now customize their profiles by using a bunch of different tools and options. People like to main different characters, and everyone has a different playstyle. So naturally, it makes sense to include a feature that gives them more control over their in-game identity.

In addition to avatars, players will also be able to select a banner and border – much like the system used in Call of Duty titles. The possibilities are endless, and there’s plenty of room for creativity and style.

Mastery Rewards

The patch will also introduce a new rogue mastery rewards system, in which players can receive special avatars, banners, and borders after reaching certain levels with a specific hero. 

Closed Beta Spray

Beyond that, players who took part in the closed beta will receive a unique spray as a thank you gift from the developers. The spray hilariously recreates the infamous spider man meme we all know and love.

Rogue Company – Gameplay Changes

Now for the nitty-gritty stuff. The patch will bring about some gameplay changes to perks, rogues, weapons, and more.

Perks

Sixth Sense has been completely removed from the game, which is something players will be happy about.

Evade now increases movement speed a little more and lasts three seconds longer, and Tracker Rounds reveals enemies for four seconds instead of three.

Some of the gadgets have been tweaked too.

C4s, Grenades, Grenade Base, and Semtex have been nerfed in terms of their radius. Meanwhile, the radius of Molotovs has been slightly increased.

Rogues

The patch also makes some balance changes to the Rogues themselves. Anvil is no longer immune to EMPs and Slows, which is great. Chaac’s self-heal duration has doubled and his self-revive will now restore him to 50 health.

What’s more, because Sixth Sense has been removed from the game, Ronin, Talon, and Vy will have Tracker Rounds instead, while Glitch will have headstrong. Ronin’s Ballistic Knife radius has also been slightly nerfed.

Beyond that, there’s been several bug fixes, quality of life changes, and weapon changes, which can all be found in the full list of the patch notes:

Rogue Company

Shroud says using Dr Disrespect Rogue Company skin risks Twitch bans

Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has said that Dr Disrespect’s Rogue Company skin could be “tricky” for streamers on the platform that want to use the skin in-game — and could even result in a ban.

Dr Disrespect was banned on Twitch on June 26, and several months later there still doesn’t seem to be any hint as to what he did to earn the ban, with his fans and apparently he himself left in the dark over the reason.

Since then, many peers and critics alike have questioned the ban, with Twitch themselves remaining tight-lipped, but one thing is clear: streamers on the platform, according to its Terms of Service, aren’t allowed to stream with those that are banned on the platform.

For that reason, shroud thinks that Twitch streamers who would like to use Doc’s new Rogue Company skin in-game could face big punishments.

The Two-Time now has his own skin and map in Rogue Company.

After suggesting that using the skin could even result in a ban for his fellow Twitch streamers, shroud was asked why he thinks that’s possible — and he just called the entire situation “tricky.”

“I would say it’s only tricky in that one part, because it’s like, 100% his likeness, you know?” shroud said. “It looks like him and everything.”

He continued: “That’s why I said it’s a tricky question, right? If it was, like, a gun skin, that’s a little different. But it’s a full-on, whole body… That’s when it’s just like ‘I don’t know’.”

This likely isn’t something that many would have thought of, but it definitely raises some valid questions about how strict Twitch’s policy is in regards to situations like these.

We know that they don’t want their partners streaming with banned creators, but whether this extends to playing as a character based off of them remains to be seen. If it’s an issue, I’m sure we’ll find out sooner rather than later.
