Dirty Bomb Presents... Fine Tuning - August Update

It's time for another Fine Tuning Update! No Mercs or Maps with this one, instead we're giving you a plethora of balance changes and fixes, including one major addition we know you've been waiting for...

New Anti-Cheat System

Over the past several months, we have been working to implement a new anti-cheat system. NGS has been designed to allow us to more easily and efficiently protect Dirty Bomb from cheating and abusive programs.

While we are confident that NGS will be an effective tool against cheaters in the long-term, we'd like to urge patience in the short-term. There is no silver-bullet solution for this problem, and while this is an important step forward, there may be some issues as we work to improve NGS and fix any issues that might arise. As always, we look forward to your feedback in the comments below about this major change to Dirty Bomb.

Balance Changes

We've been keeping an eye on your feedback, as well as the wealth of data that our servers have recorded, and as a result we are making a number of balance changes with this month's Fine Tuning Update. While there are a few tweaks to our Mercs, the biggest changes have come to the weapons, many of them receiving improved handling and reduced recoil to boost their combat potential, while a few adjustments have been made to other weapons that were performing far above the pack.
