Hell Let Loose: Radial Wheel Added in New Update

Update 14 Black Matter Studios

Developer Black Matter Studios deployed a hefty new patch for Hell Let Loose, which included plenty of new features and content for you to enjoy.

Do you have access to a microphone while playing Hell Let Loose? If not, there's a new feature in Update 14 that lets you communicate non-verbally to your teammates called the Radiant Wheel. This gives you access to the four most essential comms in the game, such as requests, responses, information, and actions.

Unlike similar implementations in other first-person shooters like Overwatch 2, the Radiant Wheel in this game only puts a marker on you or on a specific part of the map. This marker is only visible to your unit, but in its current state, it just looks kind of clunky. Hopefully, the company will refine this in future updates.

Update 14 includes plenty of new content as well. Here is a list of the best ones:
