Dirty Bomb: Everything you need to know

Dirty Bomb: Everything you need to know

Developed by Splash Damage, developers of the excellent Quake Wars, Dirty Bomb is their free to play shooter which takes some elements from Quake Wars and their other hit Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

Players select a mercenary which all come with their own special function to help push objectives across multiple maps. Players will have to attack or defend objectives and missions will involve escorting and Extraction Vehicle (EV) to a location. Other missions will involve planting explosives (C4), or steal data cores or drug samples.

In Objective Mode players will have to carry out an objective against the clock while in Stopwatch two games are played one as an attacker and one as a defender.

The game is free to play, and while it’s a fairly solid shooter, it lacks the excitement and open levels of the previous Enemy Territory titles.

    1. Some features are buggy, but overall I like Reborn. My main gripe is with the lobby system. The game starts automatically when there are 10 people and you can’t choose the number of people you want in your lobby. Some games are better suited for 3-4 people. I hope valve sees this as an issue.
