Deep Rock Galactic's Season 4 Patch Introduces Jet Boots

A massive new update for Deep Rock Galactic has dropped that marks the beginning of the fourth season. One of the biggest additions is the new Jet Boots, which allows you to fly and get away from encounters when the going gets tough.

While Jet Boots are indeed useful, getting them is not easy. You have to search for them in the Space Rig by going through a number of halls and lifts until you come across a chest with the logo of a boot illuminating on top of it. Finding it is just one part because the other thing you have to do to get the boots is play the Deep Rock Galactic version of Flappy Bird. After you've successfully completed the challenge, the Jet Boots are yours for the taking!

The Season Four update also includes a plethora of weapon balancing changes. For one, all semi-automatic weapons now have input buffering, which makes it easier for you to consistently maintain a high fire rate. This applies to popular weapons, such as the Subata, M1000, and EPC.

You can find the other balancing adjustments below:

Subata 120

  • The Subata has long been in need of an update. As always if you unlocked any of the removed upgrades their cost will be refunded.
