Deep Rock Galactic Season 2: New Weapons, Performance Pass, And More

Deep Rock Galactic is gearing up for Rival Escalation, the official name of its second season. As of April 28, PC players can already access the new content. Those playing on console can jump into the new content one week later on May 5. This new update adds more story content, new secondary weapons and enemies, another 100 tiers of the free Performance Pass, plus a new web of cosmetic unlocks to chase down. The update is a big one, but if you’re new to the game, this feels like a welcoming jumping-on point. Here’s everything you need to know about Deep Rock Galactic Season 2.

New weapons

For many players, the headlining detail is going to be the new weapons. In Season 2, the dwarven miners have added four new secondary weapons to their equipment lockers. The class-based dwarves can elect to customize loadouts using these new toys, with each class receiving one new item that suits their skillset. The lineup includes:

  • Nishanka Boltshark X-80: This crossbow can be equipped by the scout class and fires a wide range of elemental or heavy-duty bolts such as acid, fire, and triple bolts.
  • Shard Diffractor: For the group’s engineer class, the Shard Diffractor fires a beam of powerful energy turning that which lies ahead of it into pulverized dust.
  • Armskore Coil Gun: The gunner class gets this new coil gun, which is strong enough to punch through rock.
  • Colette Wave Cooker: For the dwarven driller of your squad, this new gun acts like a projectile microwave, cooking targets from the inside out. We assume that, for once, the middle won’t be left frozen still.

Collectively, these new guns seem aimed to give each class a taste of other classes without going so far as being considered multi-classing. You can equip the gun right for you in the equipment menu from the game’s main hub.
