In a hotfix update scheduled for September 8, Hi-Rez addresses the immunity bug many Rogue Company players have been reporting recently. The announcement was made on Rogue Company’s official Discord earlier today, and it details the following critical gameplay bugs being addressed:
- Players should no longer become immune to damage.
- Fixed an issue that was preventing players from reconnecting to a match after a crash or disconnect.
- Fixed an issue where players could become stuck as a Rogue regardless of who they selected in the match.
- Players should no longer be able to place the bomb inside of walls and other unintended objects.
The patch will fix things for players on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation immediately. Nintendo Switch players will get the hotfix later this week.
What is the immunity bug?
Over the past couple of weeks, Rogue Company players have reported encountering this frustrating bug. It renders the player in question completely immune to damage in a way similar to the spawn immunity mechanic used in the Strikeout mode. However, this damage immunity could happen whenever, in any mode, and makes matches completely unwinnable for the opposing team.
What was initially thought to be a deliberate exploit is apparently a bug that only a few players have experienced. That said, according to at least one Reddit user, the bug can be replicated by following a set sequence of actions. If not tackled today, the bug would have quickly become a major issue in Rogue Company, as players learn how to become completely invulnerable to damage. Thankfully, the hotfix is arriving just in time to stop that from happening.
