New Rogue – Runway

Raised by spies from opposite sides of the Cold War, Runway was an agent who used a career as a globe-trotting fashion model as cover for espionage.

Weapon Mastery

The Weapon Mastery system is a brand new way to progress your favorite weapons, earn new wraps, and unlock the ability to use your favorite weapons on other rogues that fight with the same weapon types.

Weapons will no longer be confined to specific Rogues, but each Rogue will be assigned classes.

Weapon Classes are Assault Rifles, Designated Marksman Rifles (DMR), Light Machine Guns (LMGs), Sniper Rifles, and Submachine Guns (SMGs), Pistols, and Melee.

Each time you play with weapons in their class, you will receive Mastery Points to unlock those weapons to use with other Rogues who share that class.

Mastering each class will earn you a unique reward.


Reactive Weapon Wraps are available for earning enough Mastery points for each class. These unique wraps will show animated visual effects around the weapon and are truly worthy of a Weapon Master.
