We know you’ve been waiting patiently, and it’s finally time to share some of the details from Update 5.0! We’ve been quietly working on the largest amount of content the Loadout community has seen since launch. In fact, it’s so big we’re going to run a separate beta with the community to ensure it’s ready to rock-n-roll. The beta will be open to all Loadout players and will go live in the coming weeks. You will help shape the future of Loadout and provide pivotal data, feedback and experience. But we’re not quite ready yet. In the meantime, we put together a small teaser and some information of what you can expect in Update 5.0!
Update 4.0 is a go and the goods are here for the share'n! You asked, therefore you shall receive...the option to pummel your best-friend's-neighbor in a Loadout private match! Private matches can be played with anywhere from two to eight players to create the "throwdown of the century". Don't have any friends? No worries, the bots are more than happy to snipe you across the map! This also provides ample opportunity for the "competitive" folks in these here parts to duke it out in your own environment.
Also in the update is the new map, Comm Tower. This vertical map is effectively spaced to give you the best of full-throttle close-quarters action while still providing those pivotal sniping lanes for the marksmen at heart. But that's not all; we added updates to the matchmaking algorithm, new character parts, multiple bug fixes and map rebalancing.
So get out there and tell us what you think of the new map, private matches and the rest of the update goodies!

Update 3.0 is here and it introduces the community to the Ranked Beta! Ranked is the destination where players will be able to scratch their competitive itch. In the Ranked playlist players are separated into divisional tiers and brackets, additionally there are a number of lobby changes to create a more competitive atmosphere. Before you get too anxious to play some Ranked, make sure that you have reached the appropriate level to compete! Players must reach level 10 before they can enter Ranked. The first game modes in the Ranked playlist are Jackhammer and Annihilation.
There is a major change to the Casual playlist lobby experience that allows players to vote on the specific game mode they would like to play.
MAJOR UPDATES Ranked Mode (Beta)
Players now have the ability to receive a divisional ranking based on how well they perform in each game. Before receiving a rank, players must participate in 12 provisional matches to assess their appropriate Division. The Ranked playlist currently features two of our existing game modes: Jackhammer and Annihilation. Players will maintain a separate rank for each mode they choose to play.
Ranked Level Gate
Players must reach level 10 before entering the Ranked playlist.
Ranked Lobby Changes
Players cannot see opponents from the other team while in a lobby. Like the Casual playlist, map voting has been disabled.
Casual Playlist Voting
The voting system has been altered to only include a list of all game modes when players are in the lobby – maps selection has been removed. The map selection will be determined based on the selected game mode.

Update 2.0 is now here! We're excited to release so many new changes and fixes that our community members have requested to implement into the game! We're releasing a NEW map, NEW game mode, Steam Achievements, and NEW weapon and equipment parts in the 2.0 update! That is a heck of a lot of new stuff, and we're also addressing current balance concerns and bug fixes. We have made some changes to the Personal Shield which will now be a consumable equipment item, so players will need to utilize ammo refill boxes to replenish their shields. Additionally, there are a wide ranging number of weapon balance tweaks that have affected all weapon chassis.
