Hey Runners!

today, we release version 1.22 which is mainly a quick fix patch.

We also want to seize the occasion to let you know that this year again, indieDB has opened the votes for the "IndieDB Game of the Year 2015" award.
In beta, RWR was chosen as the Tactical Shooter of the year 2012 and 2013. Let's try to achieve more this year by voting HERE to get into the top100 !

Changelog for version 1.22:

  • fix: EOD armor commonness raised to 100% so that this time every designed EOD soldier will spawn with such an armor
  • fix: map11: flare_checkpoint vehicle points at the darkcat marker
  • fix: several map fixes here and there
  • fix: some newer rare weapons didn't be tagged as rare, thus cleaned from the world twice as fast as expected
  • fix: AI grenade usage bug fixed
  • fix: inventory view item layout bug fixed
  • maps: Railroad Gap map partially redesigned
  • maps: lowered the player ai compensation in the Frozen Canyon map to make it slightly easier in invasion
  • weapons: javelin ballistic tweaked
  • weapons: soldiers carrying javelin(s) now drop at least one on death
  • vehicles: collision model of the buggy extended, so that it provides slightly more bullet cover
  • vehicles: AI slot priorization order of the buggy exchanged. Now the gunner slot will be taken prior to the passenger seat
  • calls: buggy drop call price lowered from 350 to 300RP
  • dominance: raised max RP value from 1000 to 2000
  • misc: added a custom uniform for "general of the army" rank (mainly relevant for online invasion)

Also, to give you an idea what we are working on next:

Happy running!

Hello Runners!

here is a "quickfix patch". Happy running!


  • weapons: Claymore blast radius raised from 5m to 6m
  • fix: 8x paratroopers radio call had become borked by dropping only 2 paratroopers
  • fix: now possible to make a radio call while being wounded after going prone
  • fix: harmless script error at resource unlock handling
  • fix: EOD group soldiers now all spawning with EOD armor

  • fix: issue where Desert Eagles couldn't always shoot while prone
  • fix: bullets shot for achievements now tracked properly
  • fix: stun projectile (e.g. from Pepperdust) don't destroy the first stage of a vest anymore

Hey Runners!

It has been a while since the last update but we needed some time for us and our families to be back in business with full energy! :)
Sorry for those who waited for the achievements, the support is there but the actual achievements aren't implemented yet as it would have need some more time for testing but don't worry, it will come in the next update!


  • DE/FR/ES translations added (launch the config tool to choose your language)
  • loading screen hints added
  • fixed PSG-90 sniper rifle using the wrong visual model
  • few weapon models reworked
  • Copehill down map (Final Map I) added in the dominance map rotator
  • added secondary machine pistols (mini Uzi, Steyr TMP, AEK-919k)
  • added binoculars (will slightly increase the sight range)
  • added microgun rare weapon
  • added a vest Type I, it has one less layer of damage, which means it can absorb 1 bullet, the next one will put you in wounded state. It has a bigger movement penalty and is in dominance only
  • vest Type II has a slight movement decrease
  • added camouflage suits (no protection but gives the AI harder time to detect the wearer)
  • added 2 news miniboss (gray, brown) visual models
  • fixed a bug where you could shoot through walls while being prone
  • explosions don't overall go through 1 stage of vests anymore. The bigger the explosion, the more vest stages it consumes.
  • steam achievements support (the actual achievements are not yet implemented! coming soon)
  • map fixes here and there
  • minor fixes
Apr 17, 2015

  • Linux: fixed vehicle tracking issues in campaign when continuing an existing campaign, fixing cargo vehicle deliveries
  • map view: fixed frame overlay being rendered behind the background occasionally
  • menu: added port forwarding note in Activate server screen
  • Mac: fixed init_match.xml being looked for in wrong location, causing Final Mission 1 AI commander to function in a unintended way
  • vehicles: humvee has slightly higher acceleration
  • maps: some minor fixes
  • campaign: some extraction points moved to not being extracted accidentally
  • Dominance: added server side overrules for potential client side sight range and camera modifications
  • AI: fixed a bug with bot behavior to jump back and forth between guarding and beginning to approach an already manned deployed weapon when area under open fire but enemy not detected

This Sunday at 6pm UTC, we'll have a pure PvP classic event on {SAS}Beerdrinkers!
We will try to break the record of 64 players by making a 64v64! Let's hope this won't turn into a complete mess and that the server can handle it! :)
As the event name suggests, there won't be any AI on the field, backdooring are allowed and the whole map will be capturable!

Hey runners,

we had a great week behind us with the release of RWR. We had a peak of 1391 simultaneous players and around 420 on the online servers and we are, as I speak, still on the front page of the Steam store, this is awesome!
We had to rent a few additional servers to make sure you guys can find a server to play.

Today we have mainly some hotfixes for you.


  • compatibility: different shadow camera setup for AMD APU based systems, fixes crashes/freezes
  • online: IP ban manager added
  • online: server name added in the network status data
  • online: a few potential crash situations fixed, thanks for the crashdumps guys
  • map12: fixed final mission 2 bug with script phase controllers not running after becoming defeated, effectively causing the wall to never come down
  • menu: added more visible button to enter the playground tutorial
  • menu: wiki button link pointed to manual section, button made bigger
  • badges: typo corrected in one of the kill streak badge texts
  • dialogue: corrected target character for commenting on hostile vehicle takeover

Important for server admins: Updating servers won't be required, 1.01 is compatible with 1.0.
Dear Runners!

We promised you a ZOMBIE MODE and 1-2 new maps at least. Probably even more stuff
coming but we prefer not to promise too much! :)

Enjoy the game and thanks again!

  • weapons: M107 Barrett muzzle velocity slightly increased
  • weapons: QBS-09 projectile decay time slightly increased
