Update 20: Bigger, Better, Bosco introduced the modifications system to Bosco, updated tool and weapon models, and a medbay to the Space Rig. It was released on December 18th, 2018.

New Features[]

Bosco Modifications[]

Do you need Bosco to be a Medi Drone or a Killing Machine? Now it is all up to you!

Similarly to weapons, Bosco has access to mods that can be bought and equipped. These mods will let you customize the drone using some of the existing parameters like for example number of revives or weapon damage, but we are also introducing a special secondary fire. Once the mod is active, the player can point with the Laser Pointer and press [RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON] or (LEFT TRIGGER) and Bosco will fire a rocket at the target.
The modification system has been introduced to Bosco. Modifications can be purchased and installed using a special terminal next to the Mineral Trade terminal in the Space Rig.


When you and your teammates fail a mission, you will afterwards wake up in the Medbay. Fight Together, Fail Together!

Improved Models[]

Many existing tools and weapons received model upgrades, with new sound effects and appearances.

Christmas Seasonal Event[]

Holiday Space Rig
XMas Space Rig
Main article: Seasonal Events

We couldn’t help our self and had to dress up the Space rig for the holidays. You can also buy a limited headgear and play Santa with your friends. Please don’t destroy the decorations!
Festive decorations have been added into various parts of the Space Rig, contributing to a festive atmosphere. Presents and baubles can be found in various parts of the hangar, and can be kicked around similarly to barrels. The baubles can be destroyed if kicked around, much to Mission Controls disapproval.
Ambient Christmas songs and carols will play for the duration that the player is within the Space Rig, and gifts can be seen floating in space outside a window near the Abyss Bar.
