Hey Runners!

First of all... Ho-Ho-Ho! Osumia Games wish you all a...

2021 is coming to an end and it has been a very special period for us. Thank you all so much for the support over the years, as we know some Runners are still here from the beginning of our journey!
This year 2021, the RUNNING WITH RIFLES family has grown by another 315.000 members and on top of that, over 150.000 DLC units sold complete those insane numbers. This is by far a record year, and that is 6 years after the release of the game! It looks like continuously publishing updates and having a very strong modding scene has paid off.
Speaking about records, we broke another one for concurrent players back in May with over 14.000 Runners playing at the same time!
We certainly weren't prepared for the sudden influx yet with some intense server management we came through it! :)
Some other insights about the year 2021's review include 30 updates with 7 major ones and still having an awesome community which provided new goodies for 2 community boxes!

Alright, enough with the numbers as we also have another update being released!
While the Halloween event was mainly a success, we decided to make a (small this time!) Xmas event by including a new enemy type, the bad Santa!
The bad Santa is similar to the Elite Ripper from the Halloween event, hence a pain! He will always drop a Xmas gift on death, which is mainly stuff for sale to avoid the dogged hunt for temporary rares that we experienced during the last event.

We've also prepared an update for owners of the RUNNING WITH RIFLES: WW2 DLCs!

We're adding in one new weapon to the game, as well as one new 'undead' enemy type to the special Undead gamemode, plus a variety of other changes.
The new weapon is the Sauer M30 Luftwaffe 'Drilling', a unique shotgun and rifle combination weapon meant to help a crashed Pilot survive in the wilderness. Featuring a powerful double-barrel Shotgun mode that can switch to a devastating 9.3x74mm Rifle mode, this gun packs a punch! It can be found carried by Fallschirmjaeger 'Veteran' and 'Sniper' soldiers on the game's final maps, Operation: Sealion and Operation: Varsity. It is also available to the player in the WW2: Undead mode right in the Armory, but locked behind a bit of XP!

Speaking of the Undead mode, regarding that new enemy type being added: the "Undead Spitter"! This armless abomination horks acidic gobs of liquid to a medium distance, and can put some pressure on the player to stay mobile. With the new Spitter we are also adding in Opel Blitz trucks to the map, as the Spitter can damage those, and occasionally a regular Shambler might spit acid on them too (but they will only spit on vehicles, not on regular soldiers.)

Alongside these changes, back to the PACIFIC theatre, the M1 Garand 60mm Grenade Launcher weapon is being redesigned - it will now feature two firemodes which switch its projectile type. The main firemode will now be the M49A2 High Explosive Mortar shell (adapted to fire from a rifle), and the other will be the M9A1 Anti-Tank Grenade.
Furthermore a couple balance changes and bug fixes have been made, and we updated the names of a couple weapons discovered to be inaccurate. Full changelog below!

Don't forget to join the fun on Running with Rifles Discord and we'd be more than happy if you could let us know if you like the game and the WW2 DLCs by leaving a review on Steam, as it helps us a lot!
Thank you!

Keep on running,
Your Osumia Games

  • weapons: REDESIGNED M1 Garand 60mm Grenade Launcher. Can now change grenade types between High-Explosive (anti-personnel) and Anti-Tank
BALANCE Changes:
  • maps: Arnhem wave-defense section has been rebalanced, reducing the number of enemy soldiers, vehicles, and artillery strikes to make it easier when playing alone
  • maps: Hill 262 in Allied campaign - added an Allied Armoury Truck
  • weapons: M1 Garand 60mm Grenade Launcher - the High-Explosive mode now has a 6m blast radius instead of 5.5m. Reload speed is slightly slowed down to compensate. The new Anti-Tank Grenade mode works mostly like the secondary-slot AT Rifle Grenades, but deals slightly more damage

  • weapons: M1D Garand renamed to M1C Garand, since no M1D's were used in WW2. The weapon's model has been slightly altered as well, but the HUD icon was already appropriate
  • weapons: Type STE (the Japanese MP 34 in 7.63x25mm) now renamed to Type SU; new information was discovered, and this new name is more correct
  • soldiers: UKF Commando model combination with suppressed weapon and sniper suit - fixed issue where the Commando model was not drawing when wounded
  • Undead soldiers: slightly tweaked the Resurrector summoning sound
