Version 1.7.1 (Hotfix)

We've just put out a hotfix which resolves a common crash:

  • Fixed a common crash when using Victor Saltzpyre's two-handed sword

Version 1.7


With Quests & Contracts being a part of your daily life in Ubsersreik, we felt it only fair to offer you more to do with more variation and certainly heaps more challenge!

Introducing the all new Reikshammer Contracts. Designed to test your mettle further than before and encourage team play and coordination - these contracts offer new, often scary avenues for loot acquisition. Not only that, this 1.7 patch offers a host of other fixes and tweaks for the game. Let's go in to the details below:

Feature Changes

  • Added new Contracts: (read our dev rundown on these contracts here)
    • Team Protection: Specials: Progress is rewarded by traversing through the map, taking as little damage as possible from special Skaven.
    • Team Protection: Death: Progress is rewarded by completing missions without any heroes being captured.
    • Take a Stand: Complete the required wave on the described difficulty to succeed in this contract.
    • Treasure Hunt: Gotta find ‘em all! Open all (in some cases ‘nearly all’!) of the chests during the mission to fulfil the criteria.
    • Ordnance Trial: Bombs away! Your group must kill the required number of raki using either flavor of bomb.
    • Damage Avoidance: Progress through the level taking as little damage as possible - you’re rewarded at checkpoints based on the total damage you’ve taken up to that checkpoint.
    • A Piece of Bloodied Paper: The message is largely incoherent and stained deeply in blood. One word can be made out through all the mess... "Festag"
  • Owners of a map DLC will see more consistent drop rates of the weapons specific to that DLC when playing those maps. Read more about it here.
  • Bounty Board will never have more than one key contract on a DLC map at a time
  • Bounty Board now unlocks at level 7 to give new players earlier access to contracts
  • Added contract tracking to the HUD whilst in the inn for quick reference
  • Added sound effect and flashing UI when contract progress is made
  • Added text to display amount of tokens received for completing a contract
  • Implemented support for Tobii Eye Tracking 👀
  • Added Boss Damage, Other Heroes Aided and Other Heroes Saved to End Game Score Screen


  • Fixed a stall that could occur when pressing certain hotkeys
  • Reduced memory usage of UI textures when playing a level
  • Fixed an issue where killing a special or elite enemy with a Damage over Time effect would not trigger a kill message
  • Fixed an issue where it wasn't possible to pick up supplies on wave 14 of The Fall
  • Enemies will no longer be tagged in red when a bot is wielding a Bolt Staff or Trueflight Bow
  • Fixed an issue where no sound would play on the last bullet of a Repeater Handgun
  • Tweaked size of Reward Screen texts and icons to better support languages other than English
  • Fixed an issue with Clan Rat ragdolls when laid on back
  • Fixed an issue with candles on Witch Hunter hats (we tried to tell him it wasn't safe!)
  • Fixed an issue where Skaven armies in The Enemy Below were very blurry
  • Fixed an exploit on Town Meeting
  • Fixed an issue where the amount of stamina a weapon has was occasionally being displayed incorrectly
  • Fixed an issue where Grudge Raker reload sound would still play if you switched weapon mid animation
  • Fixed an issue where Rapiers would occasionally not play sound when attacking
  • Always ready option has been removed from the advanced matchmaking settings: “We normally do our utmost to avoid removing existing features, but this feature was the cause of several very severe issues that could result in both lost tokens and weapons due to its circumvention of failsafes in place to stop these losses. Since our data shows that the feature itself sees incredible little use we have thus decided to remove it altogether rather than invest precious development time which could be spent into fixing more critical bugs and/or making new content.”
  • Fixed a level stall issue related to damage volumes
  • Fixed an issue where players could grab supplies through a locked gate on The Fall
  • Fixed an issue where a sausage hanging over the counter in the Red Moon Inn behaved strangely after being shot... Yes, really.

  • Fixed an issue where the difficulty would be incorrectly presented in loading screens when joining via lobby browser
  • Fixed an issue where host wasn't properly migrating if host left during end of round screens
  • Fixed an issue where trueflight arrows weren't spawning in the correct location on clients
  • Fixed an issue where the music from the barrel event on Horn of Magnus could continue playing indefinitely
  • Fixed an issue where you could get stuck walking up/down over cellar stair opening on Engines of War
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when swapping tabs in the Forge Screen whilst salvaging
  • Fixed not being able to navigate to the third trait with gamepad when Invocating (rerolling proc chances), if the second trait had a fixed, or no, proc chance (for example Hawk Eye or Targeteer).
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when blocking shots from a Ratling Gunner that had died
  • Fixed Rat Ogre sometimes checking the wrong player's blocking state before applying hit. (Rat Ogre hits player A, Rat Ogre checks if player B is blocking. If player B is not blocking, Rat Ogre knocks back player A. If player B is blocking, stamina loss is applied on player B and deals a blocked push on player A)
  • Fixed an issue where clients would sometimes deal more damage
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when climbing ladders with a controller
  • Fixed stall that could occur when spawning enemies

Sienna Fuegonasus

  • Fireball Staff
    • When not charged the fireball explosion has a radius of 0.75 meters and deals no damage to Stormvermin. It still applies a burn effect which damages Stormvermin.
    • When fully charged the fireball explosion has a radius of 3 meters and deals damage to Stormvermin as well as applying the burn effect.
    • The heat cost of the charged fireball has been reduced
  • Bolt Staff
    • We reduced the general damage output of the staff since in most cases it just resulted in large amounts of overkill damage.
    • The headshot multiplier was increased to compensate for the above to not reduce it’s effectiveness as a dedicated special killer weapon. When you lock onto something, it should die.
    • The amount of time needed to acquire full charge has been cut in half. So you should get fully charged bolts out in half the previous time.
    • We reduced the heat cost on level 2 and level 3 bolts.
  • Conflagration staff
  • Tweaked dot damage applications to be more consistent (The dot damage applications were bugged and very polarised where your dots either did a lot of damage or barely any damage, should now work more consistently)
  • The fire-patch now staggers unarmoured targets in the area of effect, meaning they will take more Damage over Time (DoT) applications and be stunned for longer.


  • Increased dual wield daggers blocking move speed from 85 to 90%
  • Reduced dual wield swords and sword/dagger blocking move-speed from 95% to 85%
  • Changed Sword and Dagger sweeping heavy attack from 3 to 2 targets

Victor Saltzpyre

  • Fixed a bug with the Rapier charged attack would not reach charge level 2 (piercing an extra rat and having added knockback) when charging the attack fully

This patch contains all the optimization that we did to get the game run on console hardware. It targets CPU-heavy systems where we have seen general improvements overall.

Version 1.1.6

  • Added sounds to the Shrine of Solace

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed Music Slider
  • Fixed tons of minor Audio issues
  • Fixed a bug where shield attacks would pass through enemies when player had used a speed potion

We recently tracked down an issue with our patching system which wasn't properly including audio changes. If you are still experiencing audio issues after this patch, please try reinstalling the game. If that doesn't help, please report the issues to us in the bug reporting sub forum or via our Helpdesk.

And if you missed our livestream on Patch 1.1.5, you can catch the video on Youtube here:

Version 1.1.5


We're proud to announce Patch 1.1.5 has now been deployed. This major update includes the ability to re-roll traits, a number of quality of life changes and a fix-up for the Globadier.

Trait Changes

  • Added ability to swap traits of a weapon at the Shrine of Solace:

The new Offer option lets you spend tokens to swap the traits of a weapon. After spending tokens you will be presented with a set of new traits. You may then choose to select your current traits or the new ones. The costs for Offer are 8 Common / 6 Rare / 5 Exotic based on the rarity of the weapon.

  • Added ability to re-roll value of a trait:

The new Invocate option lets you spend tokens to improve the value of an unlocked trait. The costs for Invocate are 10 Common / 8 Rare / 6 Exotic based on the rarity of the weapon.

  • Equalized trait unlocks:

Traits could previously only unlock in 0.5% increments. Meaning a trait that had a minimum value of 1% and maximum of 3% could only ever roll 1%, 1.5%, 2%, 2.5% or 3%. This made traits with high percentage differences such as 20-40% very tedious to re-roll - and not very cost efficient. Now every trait has the same amount of steps between minimum and maximum values. Doing this lets us ensure consistency in the re-roll system and keep a low cost on re-rolling. Any traits that are already unlocked will keep their current value.

Feature Changes

  • Head bobbing can now be disabled (try this if you're experiencing motion sickness)
  • Camera shakes can now be disabled
  • Game Public/Private state can now be altered during a game in progress
  • Added upward attacking and downward attacking animations for Skaven to better reflect attack ranges
  • Players will now be kicked for idling too long in public games: a notification will be displayed after 2 minutes, failure to react will kick the player


  • Added option to render low frequent transparency, such as smoke, gas clouds and dust, in a lower resolution. This significantly reduces the pixel overdraw and gives a great performance gain in transparency heavy scenes - This setting is enabled by default in all presets
  • Slightly sped up lighting calculation
  • Optimized damage, health & buff systems

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where SSAO was disabled when turning off skin shading
  • Fixed a clipping issue with Dwarf 2h weapons
  • Fixed a bug where level up rewards weren’t being properly granted
  • Fixed a crash when voting for a new level

  • Fixed several bugs that were causing rat ogres to sometimes get stuck.

  • Fixed a crash that could occur whilst killing multiple Special enemies in a short amount of time
  • Fixed the description for Dwarf Ranger’s “Boar” headpiece
  • Fixed a number of localization errors

Globadier Changes:

  • Fixed bug that was causing the globadier to observe his globe hit when not intended.
  • Improved trajectory calculations for globadier throws.
  • Improved AI handling a situation where globadier can’t find a throw trajectory to players for a long time.
  • Improved lurking AI to make the globadier less erratic when walking around between throws.
  • Fixed bug that could cause the globadier AI to get stuck not able to find a path to the players.
  • Reduced impact damage from 30 to 10 on Cataclysm
  • Increased damage over time from 10 to 15 on Cataclysm


We are aware of the current audio issues and are working to solve them as soon as possible. We've tracked it down to an error in our patching system which isn't properly including audio files. We hope to have more information on this soon.

Version 0.9.9c

Update We are very happy to finally be able to put the game live again. It's been a hectic night & day at Fatshark but your continued support throughout has really helped. A big warm thank you from all of us.

To make up for the outage, we’ve decided to add a completely new level to the preorder beta. Grab your favourite Hero and go to the Wizard’s Tower!

Unfortunately, in order to secure the servers we’ve had to roll back the backend to an earlier backup before the outage. Any progression after 12:00 (noon) UTC yesterday (Tuesday) will sadly be lost.

Finally, we are a small independent team and any feedback you can provide is super valuable to us. All the hours you’ve put into the game in the last few days have helped tremendously, so please continue playing and reporting issues like there’s no tomorrow. Because The End is Nigh…
