Hi-Rez Studios updated Rogue Company with the newest character but also other changes.
Rogue Company is one rogue richer now as Runway has joined the roster. She is perhaps the most well-known character that didn't appear in the game up until now due to the mark she made during the launch trailer. Instead of just selling the guns to the Rogues, Runway will now also fight with them.
In the fictional biography, Runway was trained by both sides of the Cold War and spent much of her life as an agent who posed as a fashion model. This former spy will pack assault and sniper rifles, making her proficient in medium to long-range.
To deal with flankers, Runway will be able to use Trip Mines and Semtex Grenades and finish them off with Hydra, a brand new weapon.
She will also refill ammo and gadgets with her ability Supply on Demand, somewhat mirroring the role Runway had in the launch trailer. Oh, and Fully Loaded will allow the character to carry two primary weapons.
Runway's perks are as follows:
- Padded Steps
- Helping Hand
- Nimble Hands
- Tracker Rounds
Weapon Mastery debuts with this update and it remains to be seen what it does for the game balance as not everyone is on board with this change.
