OverviewOverview

Rogue Company is an online shooting game where players compete in teams to win rounds. You play as one of the elite agents of Rogue Company, each with their own individual set of skills, and go to war in a variety of different game modes.

Along with ability-led characters, Rogue Company offers objective-based modes on a wide range of maps. Game modes include:
  • Extraction: Two teams of four take turns to attack or defend an objective; the winner of a round is determined once the objective is hacked or all players on a team have been eliminated.
  • Strikeout: Two teams of players fight for objectives, but unlike Extraction, are able to re-spawn after being eliminated, with each team having a limited number of re-spawns each round.
  • Demolition: Two teams of four try to plant a bomb within a time limit.
  • Wingman: Two teams of two compete in different scenarios.

Between rounds players may use money earned from completing tasks and eliminating players in the previous round to buy and upgrade weapons, equipment and perks.
