Developer CCP Games has has outlined the latest patch for their console MMO DUST 514, offering up some new weapons for players to shoot their enemies with while also tweaking the way certain vehicles work.
The new update is titled Uprising, and will add in the new Minmatar combat rifle and Caldari rail rifle, both of which join the Gallente assault rifle and Amarr scrambler rifle to bolster New Eden’s armoury. Those wanting the full stats on each of the new weapons can head over to the official blog post.
Among the new weapons is also tweaks to how vehicles handle, including changes to ground vehicle physics, turrets, ability to lock vehicles and more. A dedicated post on the matter can be found here, which includes some handy graph breakdowns on just what CCP are tweaking.
Other additions in the Uprising 1.7 patch include a new Volcanic mood to environments, resulting in areas thick with ash and smoke, where magma and debris rains down from the skies above. Friendly Fire has also been turned on, so careful where you shoot.
Uprising 1.7 is expected to hit servers sometime today, and you can find full patch notes and features over here.
