Severed Steel: Campaign Update 3 Now Available

Severed Steel
Severed Steel Steam

Severed Steel is a stylish single-player, FPS game where you play as Steel - a nimble, one-armed sharpshooter adept at killing enemies and dodging bullets. Aside from the fluid motion and serious bullet time, this title encourages you to grab weapons from your foes, instead of reloading your gun.

That said, Campaign Update 3 is now available. It introduces 12 new levels for you to complete, an improved cannon, and tons of other new content.

What’s New?

If you’ve played the game before and have entered the final levels, then you have already used the beam flamethrower arm cannon mode. The developers felt that this was rather underwhelming and needed an upgrade, and that’s where the Meta Grenade comes in.

This is similar to the Plasma Grenade that also blows holes on walls, but with stark differences, such as faster travel speed, more damage to enemies, more charges, and no drop-off.

Some new guns are brought by this update as well. One of the most noteworthy is the Sawn-off Shotgun. It has very high damage and is capable of dispatching an enemy in one blow if enough of the gun’s pellets hit.
