Deep Rock Galactic Gun and Tunnels Update Arrives

By Rebecca Smith, 5 months ago
When Deep Rock Galactic was last updated, developer Ghost Ship Games decided to combine the contents of two updates into one to get the Beards N' Drills update. This time they've done exactly the same and have combined the contents of updates 10 and 11 to get the Gun and Tunnels update, which is available now.

Gun and Tunnels

The full patch notes can be viewed below and include changes to weapons, cave content and other minor bug fixes:

COMMUNITY REQUESTED FIXES

  • Fixed several issues with mouse sensitivity. Sensitivity was not the same in Space Rig and in a Mission, they are now the same. Sensitivity had different values for horizontal and vertical, they can now be set in option.
  • Disconnecting controller no longer disables mouse and keyboards
  • Test fix for primary monitor (somewhat untested!)
  • Fixed Grappling hook infinite life bug

CAVE CONTENT

  • First implementation of different tunnels for every planetary region
  • Added crystal spikes than can drop from the ceiling in Salt Pits
  • Sticky Goo added to Fungus Bogs
  • Electro Crystals are added and can be found in the Crystal Caverns Region

MISSION MAP

  • New icons for Complexity and Length. It should now be more obvious that Complexity is a serious difficulty increase.
  • Complexity icons now shown above Mission icons

SPACERIG

  • There is a new switch in the space rig, I wonder what it does?

DOWN CAMERA MODE

GUNNER GATLING GUN REWORK

  • Starting Ammo Capacity changed from 1800 to 1600 rounds.

  • Overheats slightly faster - tweaked from 10 seconds of continuous fire to 9.
  • Overheating is more punishing - time to cool down raised from 8 seconds to 10
  • Upgrades reworked: Upgrades involving ammo and magazine increase have now been made to only focus on the magazine size. First upgrade originally gave you +400 bullets to max ammo it has been changed to +400 to magazine size. Second magazine upgrade will give you a total boost of +400 bullets where it before only increased the magazine size. Resulting in the Gatling Gun packing impressive 2400 bullets when maxed out!
