Dirty Bomb’s Latest Merc is a Dead Shot Named Redeye

Not to be left out of the Gamescom 2015 madness, Nexon and Splash Damage have just announced a new character for Dirty Bomb, the free-to-play multiplayer shooter with an emphasis on its differing mercenary characters suited to every play style. Meet Redeye, a former Australian SAS operative with a penchant for headshots.

Redeye’s signature move is sure to be his smoke bomb and IR goggles combination. Drop a smoke bomb to cloud everyone’s vision, then turn on the IR goggles to see through the dust and blast ’em all in the face. Redeye is sporting a semi-automatic rifle called the Grandeur SR to let you pop off quick and accurate shots with high damage; apparently two shots to the head is all it’ll take to down most of the other mercenaries. Redeye also carries with him a new knife for the game, the Kukri, which similarly is powerful enough to cut through enemies in two slashes, though it is a little slower that most knives.

Hop into the game now to try him out or check out his “role-call” trailer below.
