Dirty Bomb is Going Open Beta

It’s finally time! On Tuesday, June 2nd, Dirty Bomb will enter Open Beta! No more access keys, no more buy-in, no more raffles, no more sign-ups; anyone in our service area that wants to play Dirty Bomb can download it through the Steam client and play for free!

Dirty Bomb presents... The Kira and Rhino Update

New Mercs, Leagues, more Credits, and all manner of Loadout Card goodness are all headed your way in the latest Dirty Bomb update. There's also a fine assortment of fixes and balance changes. Let's dive right in, shall we?

The Fletcher Update

Welcome to the latest update to take centre stage in Dirty Bomb. Along with balance changes and a ton of squashed bugs, we also welcome some User Interface upgrades, ‘Chapel’ map updates, experience earn-rate tweaks and of course, our new Merc ‘Fletcher’ joins the crew.

Dirty Cups Community Tournament

This Sunday Dirty Cups are holding a 5v5 Stopwatch community tournament. We saw the launch of these tournaments last weekend and so far have received an extremely positive reaction. You can still sign up for the tournament so head on over to their website, DirtyCups.gg, and enter a team. A big thank you goes out to the organisers and teams that took part! We look forward to seeing some epic plays.

Tournament start times are below:

  • 18:00 UTC/GMT
  • 19:00 BST
  • 11:00 PDT

For more information or to register, you can check out their website: DirtyCups.gg. And to watch the tournament, make sure to follow their Twitch channel as well: Twitch.tv/DirtyCups.

Double XP and Credits Weekend

This weekend we are doubling the amount of XP and Credits you’ll earn from Match Rewards*, giving you more rewards for killing, blowing things up and generally playing dirty.
Start and end times are below so you know when your earnings will get a boost:

  • Friday 8th May - 17:00 UTC/GMT, 18:00 BST, 10:00 PDT
  • Monday 11th May - 17:00 UTC/GMT, 18:00 BST, 10:00 PDT

Let us know over on Twitter what you’ll be spending all of your hard-earned Credits on. Will it be Cases, Trade Ups or Recruiting a new Merc?

Brand New 'Execution' Game Mode Test Weekend

This weekend we have a new Game Mode hitting Dirty Bomb, along with a new map for you to shoot people and explode things on. The mode 'Execution', along with the map 'Overground' will be hitting the rotations, a pure double whammy of awesomeness.

The Nader Update

The latest update is now live and ready to go. Amongst an array of balance changes to augments, abilities and weapons, Nader is also exploding onto the scene as the newest Merc in town.

New map in Dirty Bomb - Dome is Here!

As you have probably worked out from this post the other day, we have a new map coming into rotation. Dome is on its way into Dirty Bomb, however it is not quite complete. But this is where you come in. We want your feedback to make some additional changes before the map is fully finished and permanently released.

Splash Damage achieves '2015 One to Watch' from Sunday Times accreditor Best Companies

Today at the studio we’re putting down our caffeine laced drinks and celebrating our ‘One to Watch’ accreditation from Best Companies! Best Companies aims to raise the bar when it comes to workplace environments, by finding out what makes companies splendid to work for, and then acknowledging this in their very best of ‘lists’.

The Bushwhacker Update

Inviting friends, a new Merc, Balance fixes and UI Updates. All this and more to come in the latest Patch Update.

Meet Bushwhacker

Bushwhacker is joining our merry band of playable Mercs, and he’s not afraid to wear a hat at all times. Better yet, Bushwhacker can set up an automated machine gun turret right on the battlefield, providing a handy portion of additional firepower. Much like Proxy, Bushwhacker is also great at tackling objectives, and you can customise him with a variety of SMGs and augments by collecting his Loadout Cards.

Hot-joining Friends

One of the most requested features has been to make playing with friends easy and convenient. We couldn’t agree more! The first round of improvements arrives with this update, adding two ways to link up with friends

Joining Friends’ Games

If your friend is playing a Casual Match in Dirty Bomb (via Quick Match or the Server Browser), and that match has open slots, you can now join them directly through the Steam friends list. To do this, open up the Steam friends list, right-click on your friend’s name, and select Join Game.

Sending Invites

This one’s handy if you’re the one playing and your match has open slots. Just bring up the Steam overlay, right-click the friend you want to invite to your game, and select Send Invite. If they accept, they’ll end up right on your server. Easy!
