Takedown: Red Sabre receives new content and fixes

Takedown: Red Sabre – a game that hasn’t been received particularly well, but bares many similarities to beloved Rainbow Six – has received a massive update today.

Players must take their time aiming, picking their spots and prepare the most elaborate strategies in order to survive. All while avoiding the bugs.

This latest DLC adds…well, it adds this…

We get a new map, Cargo Hold, a new map relight and new radar base firefight maps, as well as a new weapon set. Here’s the specifics…

New Map: Cargo Hold

The hold is a large, interior storage area of a cargo ship. The map itself is extremely large, and features a combination of CQB areas such as stairwells, and long range combat across the vast hold areas. For Tango Hunt, Bomb Disarm, and Attack/Defend, the full map is utilized, and there are a variety of Firefight variants for TDM and LMS.

New Map Relight: Radar Storm

Radar Storm changes the feel and dynamics of Radar Station from bright and clear to stormy and foggy. This changes the dynamic of the long range gameplay, making moving between lit areas of the map more of a strategic decision. This map supports Tango Hunt, Bomb Disarm, and all Versus game modes, and also includes the Radar Station Firefight variants.

New Radar Base Firefight Maps for TDM & LMS

  • Quad
  • Outside

New Weapon Set: AG Bullpup

  • AG-A3 Carbine in 5.56x45mm (Semi, Full)
  • AG-3P SMG in 9x19mm (Semi, Full)
  • AG-DMR Rifle in 5.56x45mm (Semi)

The AG weapon system is a bullpup configuration rifle, offering increased accuracy in a compact package, while having slightly increased felt recoil.
