Update 1.71 released!

Hey Runners,

in update 1.71 we continued improving the game and added some new content which will please especially the online invasion players, but we of course also have goodies for the campaign!
For those who have the Pacific DLC, you should know the final map of the campaign, "Operation Downfall". We decided to convert it to be added to the vanilla online invasion map rotation.
There has been several changes to better match the vanilla experience. The challenge is tough and we tested it with a couple of beta testers the last couple of days and we loved it! :)
We also added a "reverse" version of the assault map "Rattlesnake Crescent" where you start at the Mosque without any combat vehicle while the enemy is constantly pushing with mass of vehicles - the freshly implemented Radar Tank being one of them!



In this update, we also added a special lonewolf sniper. He is equipped with a ghillie suit and a suppressed sniper rifle and tends to go behind enemy lines taking out enemies without them to notice. If an hostile enemy unit comes too close, he will crouch and retreat to the closest cover in hopes of not being detected.
At least they don't have any body armor under their ghillie suit and are therefore relatively easy to take out unless they notice you first! Sometimes, when they feel that stealth isn't helping as they would hope for, they might call Elite reinforcement, which is a new radio call, of course also usable for the player!
It paradrops 4 special units, 3 armored paratroopers with unique SMGs and an elite medic which can heal indefinitely (and fast) while having a very strong armored vest! It tries to stay back from the fights focusing on its duty but has a taser as primary weapon in case.



Community Box #3

The first 2 community box projects were a great success! This is why we launched a new modding contest to bring even more community creations into the game.
This time we focused more on useful and realistic items rather than goofy stuff. It's fine to run in a banana costume but it won't always help you during war :)
We at Osumia Games were especially pleased with the fact that some scripting efforts have been done to extend the boundaries of the average modding work that has been done so far for previous community boxes, nice!
This goes from repair crane vehicles that can (over)-repair vehicles to GPS laptops to locate strategic enemy locations on the map. We even have a repair kit to fix your broken vests but of course we also have some new and unique weapons, neat!
Here again, there has been more stuff submitted than what we expected, so we had to make a cut at some point, but those ideas aren't buried and rather get a new chance for the next Community Box!




See you on the battlefield!

Your Osumia Games

  • weapons: outside of Online Invasion mode, the Type 1 SMG and Type Hei now have matching commonness (rather than Type Hei being far more common.) Invasion remains unchanged where the Type Hei actually is the rarest weapon.
  • items: Sentry Vest "0%" layer fixed to still provide some very minor benefit like all other vests
  • misc: edited tip regarding M1 Carbine being an effective side-arm for 'Bazooka crews', as Bazookas have been a secondary slot as well for a very long time.

1.70.3 update released!

Hello Runners!

Here comes the first update of 2019!
Not awfully much new and mainly balancing changes and some fixes!





Changelogs v1.70.3:

  • maps: fixed a few collision and pathing issues of ruins buildings
  • maps: added a stair between junkyard and TV station in Rattlesnake Crescent, to have a more direct path option
  • fix: removed unused animations in mortar weapons to clear warnings in the logs
  • vehicles: the ATV has the backseat passenger now turned by 180°. Driver now sits more upright
  • vehicles: fixed non-collideable vehicle respawn handling
  • vehicles: added collision damage for Machinegun, Minigun and Grenade Launcher deployables
  • vehicles: deployable sandbags are now easier destroyable on vehicle collision. Before only heavy vehicles could destroy them on collision
  • AI: made AI squadmate stay sitting in an additional seat in a multiseat stationary weapon
  • localization: fixed some typos

Changelogs v1.70.3 (PACIFIC DLC):

  • weapons: Type 99 "Hi-Grade" Rifle added - an elite version fitted with a monopod, anti-air sights, a bolt-cover, bayonet, and a quality wood furnish. The bolt action cycles very fast and accuracy is exceptional
  • gameplay: Veteran Difficulty now enables true Field of View for extreme challenge. You can set up a "Custom" campaign with similar values to Veteran if you wish to avoid it
  • gameplay: added Player Survivability Boost to Easy (+50%) and Hard (+20%). xp and rp modifiers also tweaked
  • gameplay: flatlined all weapon XP requirements to max at 10,000xp. Raised commonness of some of the super-rare guns. This will make these guns more accessible for single-run playthroughs (does not affect online Invasion)
  • single player: adjusted the Banzai Vest worn by AI soldiers to take damage much more reliably. Pacific Invasion remains unchanged
  • items: adjusted weight of most vests so there is more room for picking up loot when carrying reserve vests in your backpack

“Average community rating”
9.5/10 – Desura

“Running with Rifles is the kind of game that you think you know how to play, but after you die a dozen times in a row you'll realize it's not actually about running around with rifles. [...] This ain't no arcade game!”
Co-Optimus

“This game stands out as a truly iconic shooter. With the vast range of gameplay aspects as well as the addictive style and pace, this game is truly one of a kind. War games have been done before, but never to such a free and open extent.”
10/10 – TheSmilingArsonist @ Desura
