Dust 514 update 1.7 is out today!

17 replies 200 views Edited Dec 10, 2013

/Hey Starhawkers!

 

Since a lot of you guys play Dust 514, I wanted to make sure you all knew that they have put out another big update. Included is two new weapons, a revisit of the "faction wars", and rebalancing of the vehicles in the hopes of making them more useful. More info here:

http://dust514.com/news/blog/2013/12/onwards-to-uprising-1.7/

 

What do you guys think of it?

It's still here, but it's mostly a small group of people now.

 

You also have to consider that a lot of people don't like Dust 514, so they won't bother looking. :robotwink:

 

Loving the changes though!

 

This thread will probably be moved by the end of the week...

I tried out 1.7 last night, it was good.  I think the graphics have had a good upgrade, everything is brighter, and the lag is less.

Agreed, the graphic's were clearly upgraded.

 

Which is strange, CCP didn't say anything about graphical updates as far as I know.  Ninja buff?...

 


Did you try the new rifles?

I did, they're great! Personally, I think the rail rifle is my favorite. I love the accuracy (plus the awesome sounds and effects) plus the lag time isn't seeming to hurt me much, but maybe that's because I'm a little slow to the trigger anyways :smileyvery-happy:

 

Also, I haven't tried it yet, but I heard they made the remote explosives stick to vehicles now, so people are beginning to use them much like the sticky bombs in Starhawk now.

Oh really, how are they working out for you? I would try out grenades, but for whatever reason I never seem to be able to hit anyone with them (regardless of which game I'm playing). Even if I succeed at getting it in range, by the time the timer goes off the enemy's already gotten out of range :smileytongue:

The extra damage makes them much more effective for me.
