Welcome to the Containment War Update! In the latest to go live in the frag-filled world of Dirty Bomb you'll find the official release of Execution, three new permanently unlocked maps and much, much more!!
It's been nearly four months since Dirty Bomb hit Open Beta. Since then, we've released four new Mercs, furthered development of the prototype Dome Map and Execution Mode, added new features like Private Matches and new varieties of servers, made countless improvements and enough balance changes to keep Dirty Bomb as competitive as it can be... and the best is yet to come.
We're working on a major update, the biggest we've had since Dirty Bomb entered Open Beta, but we still need more time to get it ready. As such, October's Fine Tuning update is coming now, containing a few improvements and another selection of balance changes and bug fixes. Stay tuned as we get deeper into October for more info about what's coming up, and in the meantime enjoy October's Fine Tuning Update.

Wielding shotguns and the very latest in designer ear protection; Marco Tim, Ben, and Jack banded together, giving hell to every clay pigeon that was brave enough to leave the trap.
There’s no word on who performed best, but as Tim was the most senior member there we’re going to have to go with him...
