Man I HATE this radio silence whenever Fatshark mentions DLC
DRG update release date info when
how does anyone manage to use the minigun after unlocking the autocannon>better at killing hordes>doesn't have to waste ammo as it focuses to max accuracy>doesn't force you to stand still to kill a single enemy>the only scenario in which it's actually useful is if one of the big guys decides to face away from you so you can shoot its arse
>>320610431nigger they said next week infothey're not fatshark
>>320610291>We're hoping to release Chaos Wastes by the end of 2020>almost 2 weeks into 2021 and still no wordThey could say "Yeah sorry we're still working on it" at least
>>320611047Minigun is fun, and this game is so easy that you can realistically pick the fun option over the efficient option on the hardest content and still succeed.
>>320610291>>320611153Imagine having any sort of hope for Fatsharki laugh
>>320611347>funheavy is the least played class in tf2 so you're pretty much in a minority
Imagine how lame Vermintide would be if it only had Empire State troops, this is going to be Darktide.
>Radiation biome praetorian is immune to radiation and uses it as an attack>Ice biome praetorian uses a cold attack, but is not immune to cold>Heat biome praetorian does not use heat attacks and is not immune to heatWhy is this so inconsistent
>>320611047minigun is much better at peeling annoying shits like acid spitters and menaces off the ceiling than the autocannon is.but when I use the minigun, I will often be outperformed kill-wise by the engineer, compared to when I use the autocannon and almost always get top kills.you know it's always bothered me that the kill counter is just pure killskilling 1 swarmer is not the same as killing 1 praetorian. I feel like some enemies should be weighted to be worth more in the kill count. maybe 'Damage Done' would be a better measurement.
>>320611983TF2, last I checked, is not DRG.
>>320612221How do you build your autocannon?
>>320612272it's still the same type of weapon and it's been out for 13 years so it's safe to say that minigun lovers are a minority
>>320612221>ou know it's always bothered me that the kill counter is just pure killsIt's worse than that, friend. Any damage dealt to an enemy is counted as a kill when it dies. As scout I will sometimes just poke enemies with a single bullet from the assault rifle and end up with second place or sometimes even first for killsNot because I actually killed anything at all, but because I dealt some amount of damage to every single thing that spawnedIt's a hilariously bad system, and also why Engineer will almost always have "the most kills" as long as he remembers his turrets exist, because they'll tag everything that moves and add it to his kill count
>>320612651Same type of weapon in a drastically different use scenario and with an entirely different style of play. I hate TF2 heavy, but I like DRG minigun.
Is the github link really the latest NGBTO?
>>320612417carpet bomber and then 23221kills swarmers and grunts like you wouldn't believe, but when it comes to bigger targets it's a little lacking so build your sidearm for single target damage>>320612839I have 700 hours in this game and didn't know this was how that works. helps explain why the carpet bomber setup I use always gets top kills, because the AoE hits EVERYTHING
>>320613246Yeah I've been using 33121 so far, might switch the tier 3 to area damage, but I'm less sure about mag size over total ammo.
>>320612020That'd mean no Bardin, but it'd also mean no Kerillian, I think I could do with this tradeoff
>>320613732No witch hunter and mage for you too, but you get ogre who only talks about eating.
>>320613667Oh, and with carpet bomber as well
>>320613853Aren't both mages from the order and witch hunter empire troops?
>>320614036There are no psyker and inquisitor in darktide.
>>320611862I have no hope and I'm still disappointed
How does aggro work in DRG? I'm tired of bulks ignoring me and fucking the dozer
>YFW Chaos Wastes has another mode that has seperate farm in order to unlock talents/weapons on each career
>>320615429It's already got the upgrading weapons throughout the maps thing, so I wouldn't be surprised if you also got more talents as you went through maps
>>320615541I know, and thats why im scared that its going to be completely separate mode that requires hours of unlocking when people already have over 1k+ spent on game
>>320615668It will be "all things unlocking in a campaign of some small maps", and I think that is shit too. All players want more maps, enemies, careers, weapons, cosmetics. I'm not surprised if FS still working on versus mode. That would be a shitshow no one would play except established 4 player groups with 1k+ hours each.
>>320615280unsure on specifics (i.e., I have no idea if weapons have unique aggro values or something), but in general being as close to a bulk as possible while dealing a lot of damage will make it prioritize you. Bulks specifically will pick one person at random to chase, but you can override it by being an easier target (closer), or dealing a fuckload of damage (like 20% of its health bar)trying to do both is your best betmind you this is just based on my anecdotal experience playing the game, I don't have any code snippets or dev comments to back it up
>>320616401>All players want more maps, enemies, careers, weapons, cosmeticsYeah I dunno why they keep spending time and resources on these separate game modes. God help them if it has no connection to the main game like weaves
>>320616401>I'm not surprised if FS still working on versus modeThey definitely are, that's why they added that killfeed thing for player deaths. I'm really not hyped in the slightest about chaos wastes
>>320616401I'll never understand why FS decided to do Versus, is it because of the retards who assumed it's L4D and therefore should have all of its features?
>>320609957Compiling a list of vermintide 2 blunders, heres some off the top of my head:>the false roadmap posted after release promising dedicated servers and a new map within two months. This roadmap was up for months after it expired and was quietly removed later>hats in the game files but never made it into the game>promised new hats in july 2020 as well as frequent hat drops, never made it. Later it got confirmed fatshart couldnt figure out how to put them on steam without cluttering the shop and then literally forgot about them>Going on vacation multiples times right after releases that break the game>retconned seasons into no new content and just a leadershipboard reset, since they never clearly defined it "This isnt a bad thing">dlc for dlc on the new careers>sticking to WoM system and not revamping it immediatly>not listening to feedback from betas, but instead to a small group of redditors/discordfags (rumor?)>Chaos Wastes promised to "by end of winter this year", instead of undates we get weekly fanfics and an interview with the devs for the one singular effect in the game people have a problem with>purple glowing items are actually supposed to glow red, they put the red immisive over the blue so it mixed to purple unintentionally (rumor?)>versus modeAnyone got more?
>>320617362Assuming that they copy left for dead and just have the enemy players control the specials and occasionally a monster, then vs mode is going to be so shit. It will probably be fine in their internal testing there everyone is playing on recruit with their pants on their head, but as soon as it gets into the wild we'll see shit like.>blightstormers intentionally teleporting to morrslieb before casting at a location near the party, and the party can't do shit since the blightstormer is obstructed from direct LOS in addition to being on the moon. He then teleports about to deliberately avoid LOS instead of wandering about like a fool>leech players with the intent to pull people over cliffs and shit instead of simply giving them the SUCC>stormfiends intelligently denying battlefield with flames instead of climbing about the map like some kid on a jungle gym>rat ogres and spawns that deliberately just rush your ass down instead of being baited into the dodge dancethat's just off the top of my head. I'm sure that it will be worse.
>>320618180Maybe some players want to play Skaven you know.
What are the best talents/builds for foot knight and mercenary?
>>320619520Fuck themAnd fuck you
>>320618834>There was some stream where they admitted that they were trying to implement proper revision control (as in, they hadn't been using it the whole time). >Silent patrols (and the frequent return of silent patrols)>tooltips that are just wrong>shit like "the elf dual weapons have +10% crit and +50% crit on one of the attacks in its attack chain" that isn't shown ANYWHERE in the game>months upon months of having a ranged meta in their melee game because a single lucky crit into a horde could fully replenish both your temp HP and your ammo supply>wigglemancy existing for months>>320619390I like how their good decisions tend to be things that were accidents.
>>320618834>purple glowing items are actually supposed to glow red, they put the red immisive over the blue so it mixed to purple unintentionallyThis sounds so retarded that its propably true because we are talking about Fartshart here
>>320619520fuck no, i want to be a blightstormer
>>320618834>Hidden talents like WHC having bonus headshot damage, hm extra stamina and shades crit
>>320618834You forgot the largest of the them all at release.>It seems hero power has been spiked massively and we didn't notice for months because a single value in the release version was flipped while our internal build didn't have this problem and literally no one played the official release to notice woopsiedoo
>>320618834This wasn't a common problem BUT:>A bug near release was noted fixed which could crash the game so hard it uninstalled/deleted from the computer
>>320618834>No checks between modded realm and official meant you could mod shit however you wanted and it would transfer to official. Putting a ranged weapon in a melee slot meant it had infinite ammo, cross class weapons and any hat combo you'd like>Their unrelenting obsession with having everything always online have crashed the game dozens if not hundreds of times if you spent a lot of time crafting, scrapping, upgrading or opening chests.>Same reason it crashes the game at the end of a run because it lost connection to steam servers for 3 seconds, resulting in no loot or xp gained
>>320618180Where is the fucking afk mode that was 12 years ago in L4D?
>>320618834Each patch breaks one of the 120 weave maps with game ending crashes. Which defeats the purpose of the whole challenge ladder they are supposed to be.
>>320619668What is this wigglemancy I keep hearing about?
>>320620735>>Their unrelenting obsession with having everything always online have crashed the game dozens if not hundreds of times if you spent a lot of time crafting, scrapping, upgrading or opening chests.>>Same reason it crashes the game at the end of a run because it lost connection to steam servers for 3 seconds, resulting in no loot or xp gainedForgot the magic words.BACKEND ERROR
>>320620919If you can fix my piece of shit Intel SSD that died I'd show you but:Beam staff with conc gain on crit let you spam the seeking skull every 2-3 seconds if you wiggled the beam around as each new target was hit like 10 times a second and triggered crits constantly.Extra fun at the end because skull kills didn't count as ranged nor melee, just a ton of "total kills".Me and a bro once showed this to a Fatshark employee who joined the game but he didn't comment on it.
>>320620919you play pyromancer, use beam staff, crits reduce heat back then, you can just wiggle across a horde for headshots, thats about it
>>320619679It'd make me cry. You know what'd be a neat thing WoM could've added? You can set your weapon glow to match a colour of a wind of magic (brown, blue, white, purple, red etc). To unlock it you have to complete all the Weaves of that wind or something, idk.
>>320621302I dunno, that sounds like an awful lot of work for fatshark. They haven't added even the normal weave skins into the main game yet.
>>320612139>heat biome praet?
>>320623253Praetorians that spawn in the heat biome, dummy. They're normal-ass praetorians, which is what that post was pointing out.
>>320620919It was THE meta build near the start of the game before they did any kind of balancing. Overpowered as fuck and an extreme crutch that brought legions of recruit-tier shitters into high difficulty matches where they were hopelessly outmatched if their crutch ever failed them. You know how the fucking elves are normally circle chasing retards who think that they're better than they actually are and constantly bite off more than they can chew? Wigglemancers made the elgi look like a paragon of a selfless teamplayer.You know how "resourceful sharpshooter" can only proc once every 4 seconds? At the time that restriction wasn't in place. The wiggling came from the beam staff. Back then you would get an instant tick of damage the moment that the beam would touch an enemy. That instant tick came with its own roll to crit. So instead of holding the beam on target, you could rack ranged hits significantly faster by oscillating your aim over a target. This was the "wiggling"A wigglemancer was a pyromancer who combined the old way that the beam staff worked with the resourceful shooter weapon trait, their burning head ult, and the talent that purged their overheat on ult cast. They would then wiggle their beamstaff around at everything and fire off burning head once every second or two.
>>320615429I have a feeling it'll definitely be separate from the main game, you'll unlock talents that carry over through matches, but the maps will be semi-randomized and you'll have to use whatever you find in the map.
chaos wastes tomorrow
>>320625158shut the fuck up
>chaos wastes soon, dawri>oh really? when?>N O W
>>320627549What a waste
I haven't really been paying attention. Do we know which vermintide character is getting the next new career? I just hope that we don't get "Warrior Priest" saltz. He doesn't have the physique for that type of character. I'd rather have him chugging about in a miniature steam tank than see him larping as a warrior priest.
>>320627549chaos wastes tomorrow
>>320628261>I'd rather have him chugging about in a miniature steam tank than see him larping as a warrior priest.why are warhammer fans like this?
>>320628307theyre called secondaries
>>320628261absolute fagness: the post
>>320628261We got them in order so far, so Kerillian is somewhat likely the next
>finally get a group for the elite dive that isn't shit>game crashes entering the third stage>doesn't let me rejoin the groupwhy are we still here? just to suffer?
>>320628307I don't actually want him to be a steam tank. I just think that would be preferable to his lanky ass larping as a warrior priest. Both would be shit options.
i wish killing floor 2 was good
>>320630984Classes are basically alternative timelines so there really no stopping him from bulking up to properly fit warrior priest plate armor.
>>320631335>buff saltzI literally can't imagine that
>>320630984>>320631827Kerillian larps as other elf races. Kruber larps as careers that take decades of training. Bardin larps as completely different social castes in his culture including a suicidal zealot. Sienna larps as a trained Empire battle wizard but also a possessed wizard interchangeably. Its all larps you moron.
>>320631983they're not larps, they're alternate timelines you stupid fuck
>>320631983Any dwarf can become slayer at any point of their life.
He doesn't have to be buff, the armor will cover him.>>320632216Yeah but they can't just go back. You can't just decide to be an iron breaker either.
>>320631827The biggest hurdle here isnt the lore but if fatshark can be fucked to rig and weightpaint his body again if they change it beyond slapping new clothes on him
>>320631827Now you can.Also I found this by mistake:https://line.17qq.com/articles/gfffeepbz.html
I don't think there's a single thing I hate more than the fucking barrel minigame. Tying an achievement to that is beyond retarded.
>>320633335>achievementStop pretending it matters or that it's ever worth chasing. I see nothing but people getting mad chasing their fucking achievements in every single game that has them.
>>320633312I'm afraid to click on the link
>>320633508Of course it's not worth chasing. But the point is that a proper achievement system gives the player some fun side goals to go after once they've exhausted the majority of the main game. It's extra content and can enhance the game.The barrel minigame is neither interesting nor fun, so tying an achievement to it is just a joke, and it's annoying to see otherwise competent devs do something that stupid.
>>320631335None of the characters have their physiques change between their careers. I guess slayer Bardin might be a bit more toned, but that's about it. The only future that I see where fatshark bulks Saltz up is one where they just re-use all of the existing lanky-Saltz animations. So bulky-Saltz would just look like ass as he clips into himself constantly.>>320631983They can pull off the larp though. The equipment looks fitting on them. If you didn't know about the characters' existing backstories, there really wouldn't be any problem with any of them having been those careers in the first place.Warrior Priests are big muscle dudes. Saltz is old and lanky. His prowess in combat comes does not come from raw strength, and his careers reflect that. For WHC it comes from experience and exacting precision. For BH it's a reliance upon firearms. For zealot it's an immeasurable threshold of pain endurance.That's why the shitty steam tank meme makes more logical sense than warrior priest. Saltz doesn't need to change who he is to drive a tank. It's more believable then him running around in warrior priest plate while swinging a massive hammer around. Giving him a steam tank would be shit for a host of other reasons, but it would at least still be true to his character. That just underscores how shit of an idea Warrior Priest Saltz is.
>>320633512But you walked through a Skaven warpgate without thinking, twice!>>320633705So just don't do it. Do the fun ones if you say they exist. Surely you're not being a completionist when you say achievements are just there for extra content and can enhance the game?
>>320633312Now imagine that buff body attached to the existing lanky model's skeleton. Because that's what you'll get.
>>320612139Rad praets are the scariest of those fuckers, good thing you can see them coming most of the time.
>>320611047Because i like to use lead storm with a toxin aoe revolver.
Can anyone check the price of the zealot hoodie in-game?
>>320611047Because it's fun and has stopping powerAutocannon kills but it has no dakka and the spread and aoe are both so huge I feel like I'm not even putting in the effort to aim so it's boring to use
>>320633889>So just don't do it.It's the principle of the thing, anon. I don't want garbage in my game, "just don't interact with it lmao" is not a justification.
>>320635276There is no hoodie for zealot. Its for BH and its 1,6k
>>320635820>in my gamelmao x2
>>320635967Fair enough anon, go back to guzzling the dev's cum regardless of what they do.
The barrel minigame is funLiterally no argument
>>320635820Bro you're bitching about achievements
>>320633335samejust barely got it on my 7th attemptluckily I figured out the trick
For me it's the snowball fight minigame.
New elven career will store 3 healpots live OE with bombs and will have healshare built-in, making her a healslut. Elves are drinking one after another, better use that already.
>>320633335the barrel achievement is preferable to fucking car poolachievements which require a bunch of retards to coordinate like that are terrible
>>320637136New elf career will be Bladesinger. It will be a hybrid of Handmaiden and Shade, and become the most powerful and annoying class in the game.
>>320637313This is also true.
>>320637136>zealots on suicide watch>can't even die because the elgi sips a potWhich reminds me.>>320618834>At launch, using a medkit on a teammate while in the grey "near death" state would take you out of the grey state>Everyone assumed that this was an intended mechanic, and it was well received by the playerbase since it rewarded you for selflessly using the medkit on others.>Unknown to everyone, this was a bug and fatshark fixed it one day
>>320637313>hey everyone stand here and start shooting stuffwow so hard
>>320636279Achievement hunters are truly pathetic
>>320638521>and fatshark fixed it one dayAnd it immediately broke with the next patch where it remains in use to this day
>all these normie hl5 lobbies with normies trying to filter each other through ridiculous requirements
>>320638854Do krauts really?
>>320638807That must have been right around when I quit then. I didn't stick around 8 months for the next patch to read the new patch notes for classic medkits to make a return. I just came back this past week and have been babysitting a friend through champ, and there is too much healing in champ for anyone to stay in the grey for any significant period of time, much less for those kind of "share a medkit to get two people out of grey" scenarios to pop up.
>>320638854>LEGENDARY PROMOTION OR KICK, ASK BEFORE PUSHING BUTTON, EPC USERS -> KICKI mean, at least they're signaling to everyone that you don't want to join their game unless you want to play with an asshole.Even though I'm fucking autistic, I'm not autistic enough to promote any of my dwarves beyond bronze 1 because I don't care about muh prestige e-peen dickwaving
>>320639394It's ok to admit you're bad at the game anonWhen you want to roll with the big boys we'll be waiting
>>320639394Promoting lets you get some extra cosmetics through blue levels but other than that yeah, there isn't much point if you don't care.
>>320639260All the champ healing is to balance out the ff damage from the OE and swiftbow elf on your team
>>320638854Germany, what are you doing? All your good men are long dead and you are left with the onions.
>>320618834>Vermintide had a system wherein enemies fill slots around the player so there should really never be more than 8 enemies attacking the player at close range at any time. Vermintide 2 also has this system but Fatshark never managed to fix it leading to some hyperstacking and ice skating issues>Listing a QA position on the employment portion of their website saying that it would be a new department after months of claiming that had a QA department>War of the Roses, War of the Vikings>Vermintide 1 mod support>Still no dedicated servers>intentionally adding slightly overtuned weapons to paid DLC in order to get better sales.>lack of crafting QOL at start as well as inventory caps leading to issues>Various Deed glitches>The negative shilling debacleThere's just a fucking ton that i can't even get into detail on
>>320640253Wait, negative shilling?
>>320640253This is a good reference.
>>320638539>kick the barrel into the hoop a bunch of timeswow so hardsee I can also oversimplify it
>>320637313Achievements like that car one are in the game solely to make people who don't have friends to play DRG with feel like shit.
>>320638521Wait, wut, I've never seen that outside of obvious healshare and hand of shallya.
>>320640635negative shillings. There's the in game currency hat shop and there was a glitch that made hats lower priced or something along those lines. As a fix fatshark essentially charged back the people who took advantage of it, knowingly or unknowingly, by giving them negative shilling values for the currency they owed from the glitch
is it seriously that hard to ask people for help with an achievement or are you guys really that autistic
>>320644863It's not that it's hard, it's that it doesn't work, either because other people don't want to do it, or because they don't care.
>>320643230I need to test the current behavior. But back at launch, if you were in the grey state then healing a teammate with the medkit would remove your grey state. It wouldn't give you any health, so you'd still be limping along with temp HP. But at least taking a blow would only send you to a downed state rather than instant death.Then fatshark "fixed it" so that using a medkit on a teammate granted no benefit whatsoever to yourself. Then, according to >>320638807, they reverted back to the original behavior at some point after I quit.
>Decide to do QP legend for Reds>People need to be ordered to pick up booksWhat the fuck. How hard is it just pick up tome/grim when playing tanky classes
>>320618834They said this, but now they are selling hatsalso kys furfag
Why do VT players enjoy being cucked so much by their devs?
>>320640253>Vermintide 1 mod supportthis is good though, since I can use whatever mods I want without waiting for fartshart sanctioning of mods and updates
>>320645891>Playing GK, try using the STR pot quest to guarantee having a STR pot on hand since GK can pretty much solo big dick threats while a pot is active>Nobody wants to carry the grim (fuck you Unchained and IB), so I pick it up.

Nobody picks up the second one>later swap to shade.>once again, zealot and IB are wastes of space and I have to carry the grim since nobody fucking else will>second grim untouched againGod I hate it.
>>320646471>loot comes from gameplayI mean that's technically true but its so arbitrary it might as well be a loot box. It literally comes out of a box.
>>320645891Its genuinely a pleasure when the group collects books unprompted.
>>320647059Yeah but there's a mile of distinction between that thin line of "chest of items after a level" and "box of loot". I've seen people refuse to play the game on principle because it has loot boxes, thinking it's a micro-transaction riddled abomination of balance. Which it is, but not for the reasons they think.
>>320646875You're right but there's nothing goofier than booting up the Vermintide launched and seeing "Coming Soon"
>>320642583> be in elimination lobby with randos> see that the two cocoons are a room apart> suggest in chat that we kill them at the same time for the achievement> they agreeIf I can remember I still need the carpool achievement I'm just gonna ask when the time comes
>>320645891If they need to be instructed then its a good early indicator they're going to shit their pants at the end of convoc/athel/festering
>>320633764>But it would at least still be true to his character.Grail Knight is utterly retarded since it completely changes believes of Kruber from Taal, which are central to his character to Bretonnian mythos. And now he sometimes still speaks of Taal while at other times he prays to ze Lady.They really don't give a fuck and Warrior Priest are extremely wanted and would fit Saltz the most. Especially since he needs hammer weapons.
>>320648316>convocwhat the fuck has happened here? people can't clear this fucking event to save their lives now and I don't remember it being so fucking bad
>>320648352Again, only a problem because it fucked with Kruber's backstory. If you erased Kruber as a character and simply presented him as a Grail Knight, then he'd be fine since he has the right kind of build to be a knight in armor.If you erased Saltz's backstory and presented his lanky ass as a Warrior Priest, you'd be a laughing stock. It doesn't work. Kruber would make a better Warrior Priest than Saltz.
>>320648506I think that it's psychological. Some retard probably started bitching about how convoc is impossible on reddit, and they probably started hiveminding again and setup self fulfilling prophecies of defeat.
>>320648506Horde pathing and mix of elites means you cant mindlessly light attack from the same spot. One unchecked special seems to wipe most PUGs on legend.
>>320649371Sigmar will give Saltz his gains
maybe you guys can help me with some DRG cheivosgonna put up a server named /coopg/ and join if you wanna do some of the team ones
>>320648506In my case, only I'm bothering to eliminate specials, but still not fast enough. And people still die even without them. Once gas rats and ratling gunners start spawning it's over. Once I had engie in team who decided to camp in some unreachable spot and shoot from minigun doing nothing until we died.
>>320649871this is the most annoying shit, cunts camp in that spot thinking they'll win and STILL don't kill specials and die
>>320648506Athel is also a problem. Open space between the first and second tomes gives too many ways for a group to split or take damage from a horde that has space to swarm.End of the map is also a problem.
>>320649871>OE>shoot from a minigun doing nothingIm not sure what you expected

>>320653058I haven't played it yet since I returned. What happened to the one broken pillar that enemies don't climb? You could fight there without enemies raining on you.
How come DRG doesn't have a "custom mission" optionI would gladly take removal of XP/gold/mineral rewards in exchange for being able to select the exact mission/modifiers/complexity/seed whenever I want.

Does cooldown reduction actually do anything for Outcast Engineer? I'm sure it's SUPPOSED to increase conc gain from cranking but 10% is such small increase I can't bloody tell and who knows if it's bugged or whatever.
>>320656110I'm very certain it doesn't do anything, since it normally just reduces the c/d time by 10% (ie: 120s to 108s), and the crankgun doesn't work the same way.
>>320656110I think we tested it with a friend on GPS. You get the same amount of shots (IIRC 29), your stacks reload it faster (IIRC 36 and 34 seconds, I may be wrong).
>>320656585That was 32-33 seconds instead of 36, right about 10%.

It turns out ebonite glyphid events are literally impossible on hazard 1, because the game won't spawn enough glyphids to clear it in time.
>>320699067I killed 7 bugs in haz 1 once.
>>320699067There's no way haz 1 wasn't implemented as a literal jokeI genuinely don't believe they ever intended anyone to actually play it
>>320699850I'm fully convinced that haz 1 was solely made for shooting biome showcase videos
>>320699067iv had similar problems with kursite before. im convinced its partially because of not spawning enough, but also because of the distance things can spawn from youthings seem to spawn in a sphere, but that doesnt help when part of the spawn area, is an area under/above you that the bugs have to fuck off down through some random tunnel to eventually make their way to youin an effort to make bug spawns "safe" and not appear directly behind you, they've made them spawn TOO far away, and events where bugs actually need to come to you more difficult
>>320700916i forgot to mention, in that kursite cast, enemies actually spawned far enough away that they were visible from the event area, but so far that their samples decayed before it was able to be turned in. you literally had to sit there, wait and watch before even thinking about killing them
>>320694378Not to mention her special is fucking trash and goes where you want it to go maybe 10% of the time
>>320689025Once you get a PC it'll be hard justifying getting an XBOX, especially with Microsoft pushing everything through WGS.

Leeches should be more common.

>>320703224what the fuck? you're like THE designated grimbearer
>>320702114Agreed, cave leech cluster feels like what the normal spawn rates should be.

>>320704062He REALLY insisted on having a str pot so that his flamethrower would inflict damage against CWs. Which, for the record, is ALSO going in the book. Ultimately I, the shade, carried the grim since nobody else would.
>>320704712Sometimes I like to just watch IBs try and kill storm vermin by spamming lights with H&S instead of spamming push attack into light. I wonder what they're thinking while they do it?
>>320702114>>320704152I feel like, if leeches were more common, they'd be less likely to grab me. With them being so rare, sometimes I forget that they exist until it's about to get me.
>Playing fireball pyro>Shit has gone down and we are 100% going to die>Snipe a special with the flaming skull and start spamming the shit out of fireballs>we manage to survive because of the mass stagger and clear >the randoms start crying about the friendly fire It's incredible how oblivious people can be
>>320704936The flamethrower is Bardin's swiftbow.
>>320704936>>320704962Sounds ridiculous, but then again IB is the career for people who can't play higher difficulties without training wheels so I'm not surprised
>>320705241It really is a bizzare weapon on Bardin, on Sienna it kind of works because she isn't the one that should be upfront perma staggering the hoard with shield bashes, although fireball basicly does the same jobs plus so much more. But on IB it's a weapon that completely goes against the way he should be playing and at the same time does nothing he can't already do with his cc.
>>320705183Sounds like the friendliest fire

thoughts on No Dawdling (10% move speed) vs Exuberence (30% DR for 5 sec on headshot)
>>320707704Exuberence all the way. It works on melee headshots so its insanely good. Plus 30% dr on random slaverat hit from behind is always nice
>>320707704what's the point of MS anyway?Doesn't seem to help you kill rats whatsoever
>>320676489If you could you'd notice. I promise.They added integrity checks and EAC
>>320708785Positioning is very important when the shit hits the fan.
>>320709717I mean, I agree it's not a disadvantage to move faster It just seems to me the bottleneck in this game is how much raw damage you can deal (or take), not how fast you can move aroundSlicing waves of enemies, I never thought "damn, I wish I was just a little bit faster"So I would always take pretty much anything else over movement speed desu
>>320708785I've heard that 20% ms helps you avoid attacks just by moving around the horde, although I have gotten hit before anyway.
>>320710045Move speed is damage reduction and a damage increase in a sense you’re able to dodge farther with move speed since you also move faster and in some cases the extra speed will allow You get out of range of running attacks even while blocking and dodging bacwards, so it helps with the don’t get hit part of damage reduction as for damage it helps you move from where you’re not needed to where you’re needed. Like say you finished clearing the horde that’s near you but you see that your BH is trying to solo a horde too, well the faster you are able to get to him and help clear the horde the less damage he takes and the more damage you do, since you’re spending less time only walking. Move speed is technically situational but the situations it’s useful in happen often enough. >>320710350You have to be careful as if an enemy does one of the sliding attacks you’ll still get hit. You need speed pot and then some levels of speed to avoid the sliding attacks while just walking.
Merc with on your feet is mvp, never get why would you pick something else.
>>320710908I prefer my allies not holding onto their ult for half the level on the off chance we go down so they can pull off some epic clutch play we wouldn't have gotten into if they just staggered everything and gave us temp health. It's a noob trap.
>>320710908Literally the worst option on 30 lvl. Better to give everyone thp when they need it and live than wait for someone to drop, get downed state and be revived without warning and not holding block to drop and die again. Also you can use ult offensively to stagger anything, especially with cooldown talent.
Movement speed on crit or does 20% damage reduction on crit for shade help more? Haven't played her in a while, trying her out again with the new guaranteed crit talent and sword and dagger and I'm getting hit a lot by rats 360ing and instantly attacking. Is there some trick to it? Should I just spam light 1, light 2 block cancel to be more safe or is there an optimal way to use s&d?
>>320710045Movespeed over +20% is really nice IF you have weapons that don't slow you down or even speed you up when swinging them. Like coghammer heavys, Great Axe heavys, Dual Axes, Dual Hammers etc. These boosts can get you out of sliding attack range when needed and generally outrun a horde. Great Axe with speed on trophy stacks, move speed on leap and on trinket can basically let you weave in and out of a horde without needing to push or block any attacks if timed right. Basically triggering enemy's stationary attacks and hitting them when out of their range with your range of the Great Axe while not backing off too far as to trigger running attacks.Generally you simply fight all 4 and overcome everything together without needing to run away but shit hitting the fan or being left alone can have movespeed save you. It's also just fun going fast but beware enemies if you make beelines for them as they anticipate according to your speed and will swing to hit at your arrival even when going 300 miles per hour.
>>320711787>get downed state and be revived without warning and not holding block to drop and die againSurely people are ready for this when they have a Merc on their team who is still up and has his conc full, right? RIGHT?
>you're right outside of the boss arena and the outcast engineer is asking for your vial of purple drankWhat do you do?
>>320715913Tell him I don't have any because I'm always the grim carrier, potions are for pussies and *lves
>>320715913Give it to him and start recording as he inevitably gets downed from concentrating on the boss as the chaff cuts into his flanks.Extra bonus points if he says "cover me".
>>320717065>Extra bonus points if he says "cover me".Fuck, that's so real
>Fatshark decides to tweet on their Vermintide account>Its about DLC saleDER EWIGE JUDE
I just bought grail knight. Did i fuck up or is it actually a good/fun career? Also, do you have any protips for playing him?
>GK kruber calls others peasants on his subtitles>voiceline sounds the samedisgusting
>>320720719He's good, especially if your team can manage sniping specials. Since you have 2 melee slots better to equip one weapon for chaff and one for elites. Remember that despite 150 starting HP you are not tanky like other careers with the same HP since you have no damage reduxtion talents. If the team can handle gunners and warpfires then you can ditch shield weapons, if no then sword-board or bret shield is your go-to weapon against hordes and basic thp farm equipment (thp on stagger). Lvl 10 talents are debatable (3rd one is the worst because it's not power, it's damage). Strength pot talent is objectively better than alternatives, especially if you take concoction on charm. Double ult is nice but leaves you very open, not recommended using in tight situations, you can rmb second strike of course, but for cata I usually take horizontal swing.
>>320720719Equip mace plus sword and xsword. Accept that you'll be utterly useless against fire rats and gunrats but you will absolutely wreck everything else.
Tencent should make a Chinese knock off of Vermintide. At last we'll get lots of content from whipped slaves even if it means going the Gacha way.
>>320723532the fuck makes you think gacha games have content

>>320723532Why they should clone it if they already own original.
>>320724474They apparently don't outsource it to chinese devs that don't take 4 vacations a year. Also would get GW off their potential backs.
>>320720719xsword + bret s&s. You need the shield, especially in pubs. A gunner or flamer will pop up and you need to be able to quick switch and shield to stop huge HP loss.
>>320707704No Dawdling if you're going for a run and gun build. Exuberance otherwise.

>>320721783>>320721792>>320724710What is xsword? Executioner's sword? Also thanks for tips, frens. Have some rats on me.
>>320728767Take them back.
>>320728935Sorry, i can't catch them. This is a chill rat, he wont run away.
>>320720719He's good and fun.He's a melee powerhouse with some extra defensive survivability if you use a shield (can block bullets and fire on him) and his talents are actually variable and let you build in different ways.I personally go for mace and sword + Bret SnS for my loadout. Mace Sword shreds hordes and Bret SnS can do the blocking and special/elite killing. The weapons aren't super vs chaos warriors or bosses but the classes ultimate ability can clear fucking patrols and slap down CKs without much worry anyway. The talent that makes crits almost always instagib is so ludicrously powerful and makes the build really work.
>>320663302Realistically I expect it somewhere around 6-8 months after Chaos Wastes launches, which is due out this winter. I presume a late Summer or Fall release for Darktide. Probably closer to Fall because spooky October vibes.
>>320710045Moving a little bit faster can be all of the difference between being able to disengage from the crush of bodies long enough to safely snipe a special and getting stabbed.
>>320619783Well you've got the build for it
>>320728767Np fren. Correct on the xsword. Light attack for hordes (aim at heads) and heavy for armoured. heavy attack also good for springing forward and has a bit of range - hold and time it for elites coming at you
>>320731290Arent his talents really fucking boring? The talent to shit out a strength pot is the worst offender. It just stinks of a creativity drought
>>320734080Trading your passive bonus for more proactive one seems more interesting than +50% to your duties.Plus there's only 2-3 dud talents for GK.
>>320649530Retard. It's very obviously a huge spike in armor/specials compared to what it used to be. Then again, you probably don't even play the game so how would you know?
>>320734080That tier of talent alters your quests mechanicYou either get 50% better quest rewards, One additional quest, or an infinite quest for free strength pots. They're not exactly the most exciting bunch of talents but they're all viable options and anyone could make arguments for why they think any of those three are best.
>>320735409Easy:1 - good for fishing hp regen, also DR and extra power are good2 - stronger buffs are not bad, other than miniscule 7% AS3 - pot is boring but effective and reliableThat's it.
>>320735953The improved health regen quest is also improved by 100% (1hp/5 sec vs 1hp/2.5 sec) unlike the usual 50%.
europeans.... the content..... where is it....?
>>320738507Hi gay, I'm dad
Got in to Vermintide over christmas. How long is it usually between updates? When can we expect the next DLC?
>>320740705Excruciatingly long. They seemingly have a bad habit of the entire office taking quarter annual 3-week vacations. Two of the vacations will occur immediately after their bi-annual update, which will break some things and progress on fixing what was broken won't commence until they get back in 3 weeks.The "Chaos wastes" DLC is supposed to release "at the end of winter."
>>320741141>the entire office taking quarter annual 3-week vacationsGod I wish that were me.>The "Chaos wastes" DLC is supposed to release "at the end of winter."Oh, nice. That's, like, a month and a half away? Though if it's delayed, that'd be, like, march or april I guess.

>>320668074is Payday 3 in development?
They should give everyone an extra talent and just have the Stagger row as something not counting as a talent. Feels like such a waste.
>>320745761The stagger talents feel so arbitrary and dumb that every single character has that level slot wasted as those same 3 dumb talents.
>>320736165Big if true, need to test it.
>>320748750It's true and it makes collecting one grimoire a boon instead of a pain in the ass. When both grims are collected your smaller health pool will almost always be full from the passive regen.
>>320628261If the character list is anything to go by, it will be Kerillian
>>320749639You can just throw the grim away and still keep the regen
As I understand, damage reduction and block cost reduction are multiplicative? If I run 30 bcr on weapon and 30 on necklace I have not 60% but 51%? Because if it's additive then HM will have 90 and with extra 20 from FK aura it would be 110%, but we have 27%, yes-yes fatshark, you wouldn't overbuff elves, right?

>>320735953The main negative of the strength pot quest is that I feel like if I don't carry the grim, then no one else ever will.
>>320749947damage reduction is multiplicative. BCR is additive. So yes, a handmaiden can get 100% with a footknight friend with aura benefits. Unchained can get there on her own while if she keeps herself hot and bothered.
Thoughts on the Bretonnian Longsword?
>>320749893>Not carrying grims to the endHow else can I affirm my deluded beliefs of how good I am?
>>320752623I like it. I should probably use something less well rounded and more on the extreme end of the specrtum like the exec sword on my GK, but I enjoy the Bret LS too much. I really enjoy the long reach of its charged attack, and the riposte block thing it has going for it is fun too.
>>320750020>>10 series prices havent fallen at allThis is the worst. I know people upgrade and build new all the time with 20/30 series but I still can't get a good deal on a 10 series even. I'll be forever on my fucking 980.

>>320752623Solid beatstick for every kruber. Best on Mercenary who can up its cleave, attack speed, and mobility. Good all rounder for the others. Foot Knight can go heavy on stagger to bully chaos warriors or just balanced with better power/attack speed, he can also play around with a 80% BCR riposte. Huntsman benefits from having a weapon that can do a little of everything, and it has the heavy3 combos for easy elite headshots which combine nicely with the 50% extra headshot damage talent.
>>320702080Blame bitcoin farm niggers for inflating the fuck out of GPU prices, buying them all up thinking they can make it big by essentially doing nothing
>>320745761>>320748151They were added in addition to their original talents so it's not really a wasted slot. They need to give better descriptions for what they do though, they make next to no sense without a guide.
>>320755058Best to just pray for good 3000 stock at this point, if we could actually get them at retail prices they would be an amazing upgrade. Fuck I hope I can get a 3070 at least before darktide. I don't want to be forced to make a baby step upgrade for shit value only to need to upgrade again in a year.
>>320688357>2018/06/01It was added as a joke for a short time.
What exactly is the size of the post-launch VT2 team? Like three people? Is that why fuck all happens?
>>320758407>European work hours and ethic>Six month long vacations every two weeks>Small teamsThere's a reason the game barely gets updated and the expansions are always delayed. Thankfully they nailed the base game so it's at the very worst still fun to play.I'm sure after their most recent 17 week vacation for the holidays they'll all get back to work on Darktide so they'll only have to delay it 6 months instead of a year.
>>320758407they supposedly have like 40 people, meanwhile drg has like 20
>>320756015new 12GB 3060 (super ultra ti or whatever) is gonna WAAAAY better bang for buck than even a 3070FUCKING SCALPERSif you ever meet someone and find out they're a scalper please take a shit in their toilet's water tank

>>320760229I'm 70% sure that BHs "raw mighty duel" is incorrectly subtitled. The whole line makes no sense and it sounds more like "Roar mighty duo"

Is there a like a reference for how the damage of the outcast engie's gun changes with the different perks and penetrating stuff?
>100 hours in>just notice engie and driller have medium intensity flares instead of high intensity flares on the loadout screenhuh
>>320765610shooting the dummy.
>>320767637They're functionally identical. It's a remnant of the old flare system. Same reason why they have an upgrade page with no upgrades.
Which one and why
Is carpet bomber or splintering shells better for the autocannon?
>>320768125They should bring back a limited number of flares as a negative modifier.
What weapons do good damage against monks other than blunderbuss, grudgeraker and greataxe?
I always thought that detonators were spawned aggro'd, but apparently if they're spawned far enough away they're content to just walk around idly minding their own business.
>>320767765I thought the damage numbers from the dummy were completely nonsensical.
>>320609957So what's the go-to metaslave catasmasher build for Sienna?
>>320771346no, dummy, it tells you how much damage you deal, which is what you need to know for break points
Requesting gay ratbros to play co-op games with meIf you don't want to fuck male ratmen you can't join
>>320771627No, i like ratmen but only straight kind, i'll have quickplay.
is it even worth it to infamy
>>320772096Certainly up to a point
>>320771346They are accurate, they are just multiplied by 100 because certain people (and I use that term loosely) got confused by the decimal point. So 21.25 damage looks like 2125
>>320771484beam staff flamesword BW with famished flames
>>320773207which point? i'm infamy V right now, i just get annoyed having to work with not amazing builds but honestly its been a year since ive played anyway
>>320768753splintering shells is better if you still want to be able to deal dmg to anything bigger than a gruntcarpet bomber is a meme since it neuters your already poor single target damage but its really good against crowds
>>320768753Carpet BomberYou have your secondary for big bugs. Better to be great at one thing and shit at the other than mediocre at both.
For real though, I need those darktide recommend specs and release date. I'm positive I'm going to have to upgrade i just want to know how long I have to wait for this shit show to improve. If it comes out before I can get a cs d for the actual fucking retail value I might just try and get an xbox on the cheap. At least that way I can save by waiting for none scalper prices, play darktide, and when I do upgrade have a really huge blue ray player for the living room. Only issue with that is progress won't carry over, although I heard if you email them they can do something about that.
>>320775876Gunner's secondaries are tailor made to handle single targets. Whip it out for the occasional praetorian/menace/oppressor/etc and use your primary to mow down swarms.
>>320776104or be great at both by playing lead storm minigunner with blowthrough
>>320768753What this guy said >>320775876, except for carpet bomber isn't a meme and is going to be better most of the time, but you need to have a sidearm that allows you to deal with bigger bugs and x2 damage from power attack. Revolver works fine. Splintering shells OC is more foolproof though, that's for sure.
>>320771484Depends, BW with bolt and flamesword for the big boy damage, or beam and flamesword for cooking things. Unchained with flail and fireball is great, bolt can work but you'll be in the thick of the action so it can be dangerous. Crow and fireball pyro is good as well.
Is it wrong that I run Exquisite Huntress on shade not because I think that it will be the most useful, but because I'm addicted to headshots and really like seeing that headshot counter tick up to 10 in my buff bar?
Sup /coopg/, can you recommend me a couple of relatively obscure coop games (not from the OP) that came out in recent years and are good? Don't care if it's session-based or a huge campaign rpg (i do know about DoS2). The more, the better.
>>320776662It's a good choice regardless so more power to you.
>>320776187the burst pistol is nice for isolated swarms, quick reload and no spool up helps when you just don't feel like getting chewed on for 10 seconds while your primary revs up/speeds up, and you can afford it more than the revolveralso pretty good on big boys with the stun ability though, still haven't figured out if I like experimental rounds or lead spray more
>>320776964Not really obscure but me and a friend had a great time playing dark siders genesis, it's only 2 player coop though. It's an isometric action game with big puzzle dungeons.
>>320776964baulder gate 3 is on ea right now, if you got table top sim there kingdom death: monster, remnant: from the ashes is pretty good
>>320768753carpet bomber with this buildstill have your massive splash radius, but with some of your direct damage back
>>320776964Alien Swarm/Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop, Viscera Cleanup Detail and its expansions, Lost Planet 2, Barotrauma, Iron Brigade, Fortnite(not the battle royale)
>>320777884>alien swarmthat was good shit but died so quickly, basically>one level tech demo and a tf2 hat thanks for comindid reactive drop live up to the potential?
>>320778019no fucking clue but Twin Stick co-op needs more development.I'm excited for the potential Endless Dungeon might have
does an angel investor keep the endless franchise alive? i've never seen an IP try to genre-hop so often yet still has nothing but bad to middling games.where does the money come from to keep making endless games?
>>320778482Endless games are pretty decent and really there has only been one genre hop and that was to a turn based tower defense game which as a genre is surprisingly similar to the 4x genre of games that they have been making
>>320776964what level of coop do you want tholike actual teamwork or just some randos popping by to do their part and move on
>>320775776>>320776471Not gonna lie the beam staff feels super shitty, it doesnt seem to kill hordes very well even with headshots and it takes like 3~ seconds to kill a special, am i missing something?
>>320779308you gotta right click while the beam is out
this is the best gunner primary build in the gameI use this autocannon build myself and I swear by it
>>320779730>not taking rate of fire growth speed>not taking splash radiuswhat are you doing
>>320768510Heat radiance is nice if you get surrounded but you should avoid that as much as possible, and it can also damage things you don't want to, such as exploding plants, swarmer eggs and dread cocoons.Targets explode is also great but won't always activate, but it's a lot better than heat radiance when it does trigger.I just want to know if targets explode stacks with exploding guts.
>>320779308Cone-blast for hordesBeam-blast for specialsBeam-beam for monsters
20% power boost on "parries" or 30% faster stam regen for grail knight. Xsword and Bret S&S.
>>320779578>>320782906I already do the beam detonate, but i guess i'll give it another try
>>320783578Stam regen without a doubt are you kidding
>>320782641at this dmg you can STRIP a praet clean in like 1.5 secondsI mean Ill try out the extra splash radius, but I'm not expecting to like it more than ARMOR FUCKas for RoF build speed you may have the right of itit's just the lowered RoF of bertha is it's most crippling weakness in my opinionbut I definitely get it for reaching the 20% extra dmg more often
>>320782641>>320784532oh wait I was confused as to which of those mods where in what slotbruh what>taking RoF build speed over even more accuracy no no no I will not abide it
>>320783578If you want to engage in dangerous styles for a little power then parries but almost everyone favors stamina.
>>320784367When do I ever use stam with xsword.
>>320783578Unless you have a specific use case in mind that the power boost lets you achieve that you can't achieve without it, I'm inclined towards the stamina regen and push arc boost.
Killing Nurgloth leaves me no opponents in this world worthy of defeating me. Good bye dawri.
>>320784952What do you need +20% power to kill where you also have time to setup a timed block beforehand?
>>320784839>accuracy on a gun you're using in mid to close range>versus faster firerate and thus having the +20% damage bonus at max firerate active for longercringe
>>320784952....when you block? which you do a lot of on every hero if you aren't a champion main?
>>320784952>>320785804Or shove, which you also will be doing a lot of outside of vet
>>320785451To help cleave through hordes better. It's super easy to parry them.>>320785804I'm playing grail knight. My 2nd weapon bret S&S with 30 bcr and I have stam regen on my trinket already. If I need to block for actually blocking I'll just swap to that.
Whats the longest amount of time you've spent in a Point Extraction mission and lived with a victory?
Realistically speaking, will we fight demons in chaos wastes? New boss, trophies? How many new maps in total?
>>320786625>DemonsActual demons? No. Demon aided worshipers? Maybe.>New bossDoubt.>TrophiesFor the treasure room? Seems full.>MapsSome entirely new arena/smaller challenge maps type of thing so, real maps? Zero.
>tfw my only oc for the autocannon is the clean composite casings onewhyyyyyyhow do i even make a decent build with this? do i just give up for now and stick to the minigun?
>>320787310I am guilty of intentionally shooting doretta many times during and after the mission is done, sometimes even causing one of her treads to fail.I am not sorry.
>>320787365what overclocks do you have for the minigun?
>>320787310Now we just leave it alive to the charge suckers.
>>320786484Around 40ish minutes. Magma core with a Bet-c that accidently got triggered and three bulks. Lots of downs from everyone but we somehow managed to pull through.
>>320787578a little bit more oomph and that's it reallyi wish i'd more ocs for gunner
>>320787365you can make a pseudo big bertha build with that
so bullet hell, do I want the improved spread upgrade so i can vaguely aim in a direction or just ignore it and pray something connects?
>>320787656that sounds like it was hell. Bet C is awful with bombs on that map especially
>>320787876i had* fuck
>>320787310Finally, heartstone drilling side missions in Deep Dives
>>320787917obviouslyyou would have to be insane to take 600% spread over 120% spread
>>320782641not him, butdamage
>>320787898any good secondaries to go with this? i have magic bullets and elephant rounds on my revolver. don't have any on the brt except for lewd storm
>>320787876id stick with minigun and that clean OC until you get something better
>>320788132I mean I'm not sure how accurate the ricochets are, if they were good enough then 600 spread might work better for horde clearing and straight up going around praets/ops and bouncing right up their ass
>>320788409bullets only ricochet to targets 5m away from the point of impact
>>320788242lead spray*i am bad at writing and remembering names
>>320788409>>320788132oh, and what's the interaction with the ricochets and pass through?
>>320788409They only have 50% chance to ricochetYou still want to hit things and not just shoot walls
>>320788561it's very goodimagine shooting at a bunch of bugs at a wall, and your bullets automatically orients themselves against the wall, letting you score those penetrations
>>320788724>>320788579>>320788497thanks, gonna field test builds with this newfound knowledge now
>>320786484I think it was around 40 minutes for me as well. I was fucking around with friends and we didn't know it scaled with time until that mission, but the swarms were back to back and the floor was carpeted with grunts.
>>320787365This is another fun build with composite casings.>time to empty magazine: 31.43 sYou can just keep shooting forever.
>>320789735>>320787898based. thank you so much anons, ill give these a tryany recommendations for secondary builds?
>>320787918Yeah at there was a lot of vertical shit and the last couple of aquaros were hard to find. I remember using my iron will to grab some sugar and finish off the BET-C with my breach cutter so the scout could have breathing room to get the others up.
>>320790071uh, elephant rounds with max ammo I guess
>>320790071if you have micro fletchettes for the BRT you can build it as a highly effective long range stungun. Shuts down goo bombers and menaces
>>320784091To be honest, the detonate on beam staff doesn't do a whole lot of damage. When I use detonate on UC, it's to get my heat up quickly. On BW, i rarely use it, since fire sword h1 spam settles everything. At most, i use detonate to add an extra dot to CWs when ult is down.Beam staff shines on UC because you can get heat really quickly and shines on BW because of its ability to proc soot shield and synergy with famished flames that turns it into a brain dead boss killer.

>>320787876Fuck it, I’ll suggest some joke overclocksOne doubles your minigun ammo count while increasing fire rate up by 30% and decreasing damage down to 3 or 2.Another just makes you able to fly and hover with bursts when firing down so you can avoid being swarmed, but cooling down from over heating is longer and it obviously takes premeditated timing for liftoff force to overpower speed of falling, ergo you can’t save yourself at the last second from hitting the ground from a high place.Another overclock is just electric rounds that run on the power of your natural shield, but you can activate when this mini gun shoots electric rounds by pressing the reload key, so you can stun as many bugs as possible and hope you can kill them them all before then. And you can only do 5 damage with each bullet, and you have to wait for enough juice to charge the bullets for as long as it takes to fully regenerate your shield.Another is super penetrating rounds that absolutely remove armor and go through 5 bugs at once, and through solid rock up to 1 m, but the minigun has only 1700 rounds and fires at 20 or 16 rpm compared to the normal 30 rpm Another just allows the minigun to shoot jets of beer at the bugs in hopes of intoxicating and poisoning them to death. And you can shoot your dwarf buddies to heal at 3 health per hit but not revive them and also get them drunk if shot for more than 3 secs. Horribly bad at long range since it’s not hot lead.
>>320798548>Another just makes you able to fly and hover with bursts when firing downthis would ironically become his best OC
Replace hover boots with actual rocket boots, sure it gives you mobility but also fall damage if you're retarded.
Replace scout's backpack with C4
>>320761876>>320763142>>320763931The fuck does WAR FUNDING mean?
>As a prank, we decided to replace the driller's c4s with a bulk detonator. Let's see if he notices...
>>320797208I've literally never had a bulk freeze and die, at most I've seen it slow down for a precious second or two since the timing is so preciseto have that one in a million shatter kill on a crassus is incredible, maybe you should stay inside for a few days lest whatever mayan diety cursed you causes a meteorite to impact your nuts
>>320800748Funds for Saltzpyre's war on rats. The whole reason he started being a Bounty Hunter.
>>320800073hoverboots should just be a double jump perk with the same cooldown as dash
>>320801775It would be too strong.
Something good happened, two randoms joined my game. A WS and GK, they were good and we ended up doing a bunch of legend deeds back to back after a skittergate run to finish the quest for my crowbill skin . I can't remember the last time that happened. On xbone as well which makes it all the more incredible.
>>320800748The fuck does Stars and Shadow mean?
>>320802094>On xbone as wellDrop your tag, bro. Let's play sometime. I usually stick to cata if possible but I'm still down for legend of you wanna do challenges/deeds.
>>320771160Nah, the Crassus spawn i believe at the start of the level and just wander, like Hoarders.Regular Dets aggro immediately
>>320803003LastRavenLiquid I'm up for cata, I've just been getting some friends into the game so I've done a lot of vet to legend runs lately. Just been swapping between characters to finish up some weapon skin challenges where I can to get the bots looking good. Can feel myself getting sloppy from it all though.
>>320803573Added you. Sovereign 300
utility overclocks when
>>320771160>>320803293Would be cool if more dets spawned without aggro, would lead to some jumpscares like when you run into a tank.
>>320805283Not soon enough
>>320805283After flare overclocks.
>>320805283not gonna happendevs said it would cause too much unbalance and/or encroach on other tool's utility
You ever see a map and just go "man, I'm glad I picked driller"
>>320808493I also regret not picking driller sometimes because no one joins the game.
>>320810679Be quiet Scunt, dwarves are talking.
>>320807643>and/or encroach on other tool's utilityironic considering they added functionality to the EPC that:1. replaces scout's utility for mining minerals2. isn't even an OC, so anyone can use it as soon as they get the levels3. is literally the only "good" option in its tier so you're forced to take it and pushed to use itwhat a shit excuse
I fucking hate Fatshark. Most incompetent devs on the planet. Why can't they fix their fucking game? It seems like every fucking day I run into a new error I've never seen before. And now this one is happening every time I launch the game. The game was working just fine earlier today.
>>320812601Grappling hook isn't scout's utility, that would be the flare gun. You want to light a cave with EPC, be my guest. And have fun mining fossils out of the ceiling with EPC.
>>320807643The devs are incompetent and/or cowards, then.
>>320801592But how does shooting rats or barbarians fund it? What does it mean to fire a fancy pistol to kill monsters and have it fund your personal war? I am very confused.
>>320815332He's a bounty hunter, the implication is they had a price on their head.
>>320813050>lighting caves>necessarylmao>mining fossils out of the ceilingjust drill to them, whatevsscout is useless
Who needs "co-op" when you have an army of robots
>>320813050Hook lets you be the Johnny-on-the-spot with anything, not just mining. Clutching out revives or getting mini-mules done quick is just as good utility as setting up flares
>>320820101why can't WE use mini mules for anything? some other faggots get to use them and die like greenbeards but you only ever patch them up
>>320820101>not using lightbulb Bosco>>320820208Because those aren't for elite miners.
>break off from the main group to grab the 2nd grim on Dark omens.>the entire team dies the moment I break LOS of them.>there wasn't even a horde. It was just some ambients.>Host DCs after he dies.God damnit.I know the host isn't here, but I'm disappointed in his decision to give his IB bardin-bot drake weapons. The bots are not intelligent enough to use either of them. You want to give Bardinbot either a handgun or an xbow so that he occasionally will 360 noscopes specials. The bots are really good at that on the occasions that they actually feel like shooting.
>>320820358elaborate on this lightbulb bosco
>>320820962Just pick the light upgrade instead of the extra rocket, it turns Bosco into a flying, endless flare.
>>320821084Wait, so the light is just always turned on with that upgrade?what the fuck
>>320821127No it just makes the light as strong as a scout flare when you ask Bosco to illuminate the area.
Why yes, you have reached the based department
>>320821489Almost as fun as 4 nuke engies.
>>320821807must be nice to have good teammates who actually know how to coordinate;_;
>>320821287Gave it a shot for a quick mission and this is pretty good, at least for being able to determine what the fuck is on the ceiling from 50m away. Might even make mining those fuckhuge dense biozone caves not make me want to kill myself when not playing scout.
>>320820101>>320821084>>320821287>>320822914>not soloing as scout in the first place
Admit it, Bosco wouldn't be nearly as cute without his little robot ears.
>>320822914Full utility Bosco is the best, though i changed the mining speed for more damage so he can kill annoying bugs faster.
>>320823276whythe mining speed is probably what makes bosco so useful, almost on par with EPC mining
>>320823441Because I already mine everything within reach on my own, so i decided that making Bosco kills things faster was a good idea.
>>320823276It is a bummer that he needs the extra 2 damage to one-shot swarmers and shockers, because his normal mining/digging is.. really slow.>>320823441On haz4/5 he requires 2 bullets to kill those shitty small enemies rather than 1, and that adds up to a lot of missed bugs surviving long enough to attack you.It's pretty nice to not have to even think about swarmers or shockers at all as long as he has that upgrade. He deletes them before they can get anywhere near you, which means less ammo wasted, less enemies in your face and applying CC, and less time focusing on things that don't matter during a swarm.Essentially, you're trading convenience during downtime for convenience under pressure.
>>320823617Bosco also kills grabbers and leeches faster with the +2 damage, i hate when Bosco disappears chasing a grabber into another room.
>Beat all missions on legend with friend>Game wont let us go onto cata>Redoin some missions on legend for reds>Turns out hagel or whatever never registered as being killed>My friend made him fade from existence with the billhook the only time we beat that levelHuh. Kinnda interesting the game tracks actual kills on the bosses separate from the level completion. I suppose that means if you beat a boss but never beat the level you could unlock cata without ever beating a legend level if you died in the escape after a boss fight.
Why do single mod tiers even fucking existWhy does the platform gun even have the OPTION to not reduce fall damage?Why does Bosco even have the OPTION to not fire rockets?Anyone playing the game longer than five minutes will unlock this shit anyway, and then it will be permanently enabled from then onwards. Why even bother making it an unlock? Why not fill those tiers with actual mods instead?What the fuck?
>>320824310paddingalso I would kick any engineer not using the fall damage reduction mod if I happened to die falling onto one
>playan vermintide>longbow can oneshot body shot stormvermins>but marauders with masks need a headshot+bodyshot to killsend help
>>320820358I don't care if I'm elite, they have cute little lights on their heads
>>320827080they're big guys
Would you give up one of your talents to have a personal mini-mule that follows you around and only responds to your orders? IMO that sounds way more useful that the reddit elves' pet bugs.
>>320827781If i have to trade steeve for another pet, then i want a mactera or drone.
>>320827781nah, i already run deep pockets, and im probably a cunt for it, but if i call the mule and see it start to walk away, i call that fucker right backi do mention in chat after i finish to call it back if they're far, but still.
>>320824310like the other anon mentioned, paddinglikely though so the item still has progression, but that theres a mechanic or item added they consider shouldnt be given to a level 0right out the gate, a greenbeard isnt going to remember bosco has rockets, or they can just jump down on their platforms to not diebut if they manually unlock and learn that fact themselves as they play? they willi still dont use those fucking rockets. its too annoying to switch to the "weapon" boscos laser pointer
man I love using neurotoxin nadesa shame that axes overshadow them so much
>>320828767I don't know how to use these things without blowing them up.
>>320828704just keep some cryo rockets in reserve so you can just right click a breeder for a clean instakill
>>320828913Bust out your subata and then burn it before it wears off. Or bring cryo and go full area denial. Sadly though, cryo combos better with axes.
>>320829414why does it exist?

>>320828767>blinds me for 10 seconds then blows up in my faceWell at least it's not the typical Gunner with cluster grenades
I decided to play some Sienna's mace since forever. I remember it got a lot of buffs in BBB but didn't use it. Still fun if you invest in some AS, especially heavy-light or light-light against single targets.

Chaos wastes tomorrow
>>320832447SHUT THE FUCK UP
chaos wastes is cool and all but whens VERSUS
>>320833323hopefully neveralso, shut the fuck up
>>320833191I work for Fatshark. Because of your nasty message, we will delay Chaos Wastes for another two months:)
>>320833827Filthy liar I know Fatshark is on their first three-week quarterly vacation
Update 33 soon bros.
>>320831796Frankly I stopped at WS
>>320820831I don't think most people prep their bots when they host. You just hope real players join and the bots have whatever you used last.
>>320824175>I suppose that means if you beat a boss but never beat the level you could unlock cata without ever beating a legend level if you died in the escape after a boss fight.You are not awarded the challenge if you die after killing a Lord.
>>320835073Your right I forgot. Still amusing that the kill all bosses thing is actually tied to the bosses dieing. Like did the anticipate players glitching out/skipping bosses and plan the challenges around it? That would be a very fatshark thing to do I suppose. We actually beat our first cata map with just me him and the bots. Bots fucking melt in cata man.
>>320835262>Bots fucking melt in cata man.And yet I still see "what should I run on my bots for cata FoW?".Insanity.
>>320835354Given my into to the BS that is cata I would just have to say what ever classes can survive the longest. Ironbreaker lived a bit. Even if he did nothing but stand there and soak hits.
>>320835354Is there a guide to solo cata fow with bots? Not through exploits. Probably would require use of RV for ammo, then WHC and Merc
>>320836479Play with people. I did the grind of finding people willing to go cata FoW by asking randoms and trying for a week or longer as I kept adding people.
is borderlands 1 worth playing before 2?
>>320836742Borderlands 1 starts extremely fucking boring, but i assume you will play with friends which is alright.
LURE or Proximity Mine?
>>320836742it was before the series became pants on head retarded, and was just the regular kind of retardeddo you NEED to? nodoes the story help/is needed? nois it still fun? yeahhonestly, you could just as easily get away with playing 1 after 2, just based on if you enjoy 2 enough to want more content
>>320836962through virtue of mine staying down near indefinitely if they're not triggered, and escort missions ending with a shit ton of extra supplies, proximity minesits damage isnt bad, and the trade off of having to use them early, for getting 4 smaller swarm clearing bursts is worth it imoshitting out several dozen around a heartstone just because you CAN is worth it alone though
I heard about cata FoW cheese on BW, is it still viable?
>>320841902BW is still retarded strong
>>320836962I get more use out of the mine, feels better for a defensive class like Engy.

Clan rats and stormvermin with flintlocks when?
>>320851087Why they give me Terraria's Twins feeling. You fight both at the same time?
>>320836742It was crazy going back to BL1 recently. I remember that game blowing my fucking mind with my friends back when it launched. I played the remastered version and it was... Dull. I do remember even back then the games start was SUPER slow and boring. But even after that there's a ton of driving back and forth with not much happening. When the action is going down the game is top notch but between the action sections it can be a bit too quiet. If you don't mind that, then I say yeah it's a load of fun with friends.BL2 is obviously better in almost every regard though.I also enjoyed BL3, despite how much shit everyone gave it. Yes the plot was trash and the endgame is nonexistant, but the gunplay and crazy combats were fantastic.
Want to complete challenges to get better pistol and coghammer skins, but have zero motivation to play OE. The class is tainted after so many runs with trash OE. Any good builds and playstyles?
>>320854912Ditch your completionist desires and just enjoy the game.
>>320854912>want better skins for a class I have 0 interest of playingwhy
>>320854912General playstyle, I go standard dwarf. Once I got the Coghammer unlocks I switched to Greathammer or Shield. Ranged, handgun or masterwork pistol for specials. Three main builds:The big gun - Using the crankgun a lotArmour Piercing Slugs - Steam Capacitors - Gromril Plated ShotPrimarily use the crankgun to shoot down elites at range and out of mixed groups. Can also shoot down hordes if you can keep cranking, depends positioning and on how much the team is willing to cover you. Optionally pair with drakefire pistols to help with horde killing, gunning down ambient enemies and the joys of no ammo.The regular crankgun - Crankgun a medium amount.Armour Piercing Slugs/Leading Shot - Steam Capacitors/Superior Gaskets - Ammo HoppersUse the crankgun to gun down incoming hordes, maulers/berserkers, sometimes a monster. If you are clear, open up in melee - good way to die if you're not careful. Leading shot if you want to punch against larger single targets better; monsters, armoured rats, etc. Armour Piercing Slugs if you want to punch against hordes and mixed groups better.Gaskets if you find you're supporting in melee more often and are using the crankgun less.The pocket grudgeraker - Crankgun a minimal amountLeading Shots - Gaskets - Compression ChamberUse it like a grudgeraker. Shoot out maulers/beserkers, put a dent in a horde. Put it away, let gaskets do its work while you melee.
>>320788806i wanna FUCK that pkmn character
>>320856730probably because he uses the weapons on other careers
>>320857237>The pocket grudgeraker - Crankgun a minimal amountWhy even play Engineer at that point
>>320836962I like the bouncer, the horde clear on it is great. Only reason I can see taking LURE over it is to combo with an AoE GL or if you aren't proactive enough with grenades to prevent yourself from being swarmed
>>320860656three weapons are still better than two
So how are this week's Deep Dives
Korlok tyrant weed needs a rework or a nerf or literally any sort of fucking fix. Who the hell wants to spend 20+ minutes on a miniboss that gives no noticeable exp and can often spawn in the most fucked up sniper nest position on the map.Sure it can take less than 5 minutes if your team can coordinate and everyone knows their class strengths but do you seriously think people have any capacity for teamwork when they can instead play scout and run in front of the weed turrets, taking every hit to the face and constantly getting downed in the worst wide open places. So then the time you could use actually doing damage to the core you're using to field medic children. And you want to get the scout back up since his rifle does such good damage on the core, but everytime the core is open, the scout is fucking down again. Also why is nobody putting priority on the healing pods? Why do I have to be in this loop of using a C4 to get the core to a rifle shot away from death and then it heals back up to a full stock in a matter of seconds. I hate Korlok tyrant weeds, I fucking hate them. Thanks for coming to my TED talk./blog
>>320863512>spend 20+ minutesIs this your first shooter? How the fuck do you manage to spend more than 5 minutes on it?
>>320863512Thank you for taking one of VERY few things that requires genuine teamwork to handle and saying "no, I don't want to have any difficulty in my co-op shooter game, I want to spend every mission shooting waves of bugs and nothing else, God forbid anything tests my ability to coordinate damage in even the most basic way"Fuck you. I will gladly take failing a mission 10 times due to greenbeards and idiots if it means that I can have even one mission wherein the tram comes together as a well oiled machine to annihilate a boss through teamwork and a bit of effort. If anything, we need MORE bosses like this, and they need to be HARDER, and more frequent. People are bad at Korlok because it's so rare, they never have to think about it or practice it. Noobs get caught by surprise, die, and then never see it again for the next 50 missions. We need events like this to be commonplace so that people will either shape up and become proper team players capable of handling actual scenarios that require actual teamwork, or they'll leave and stop wasting everyone's time. Because face it, even as much as you might hate failing those boss fights, when you DO get those rotations where your team knows its shit and you kill that fucking plant in 60 seconds, it feels good as fuck. Stuff like that is absolute peak co-op gamefeel.
>>320863512you need to learn how to shoot things
>>320863512>hit sprouts as they appear, even scout can kill them before they can do anything>prioritize healing pods>as long as someone on your team has a single target dps weapon (likely) you'll chunk the korlok itselfwow that was hardthe only time korloks are tough is when it spawns healing pods in retarded places
>>320863512I get your frustration at retards fucking up, but there's a million different ways for them to screw the mission anyways and >>320864140 has the right of it.
>>320863512I've legitimately seen BET-C and OMEN kill more teams than the Korlok
What's the best M1000 overclock? I love this gun but the ammo economy with charged shots using 2x ammo makes me want to die. Should I go for an OC that just gives me more ammo, or more damage so I don't need as many shots to begin with, or whatI don't really know what I'm doing with this gun, I just like how it feels and I want to be able to shoot it more between resupplies.
>>320864115>>320864190Aiming was never the problem...>>320864221Wow, it's almost like it really isn't if your team can work together. Now tell any of the teams I end up in not sperg rush and solo.>>320864265>>320864140Let me abbreviate. Aiming is not the problem. Even the teamwork challenge aspect wouldn't be a problem. If it weren't for the awful public matchups where nobody in the game can speak the same language, much less accept to follow instructions if they can understand you. Public games make like 99% of this game for me so these things can go suck a dick.When the team clicks and the korlok goes down easy it's a great feel but it's so rare it doesn't make the other times worth it. I'd rather just throw the game than watch the bronze ranks struggle to figure it out until nitra runs out.
>>320864912>work togetherwhat does this even mean? as long as people are shooting at shit and at least one person is prioritizing healing pods, you're golden. you don't have to fucking coordinateif you're complaining about dipshits dying, well that affects the entire game and I don't see how that's a Korlok issue
>>320864912Maybe you should take a short break and meet up with a good friend of mine, Bosco. He always follows orders, and he never misses.In all seriousness though, it really is just you getting unlucky with these teams, I feel like. At the very least, I haven't had the same experience as you in regards to getting so many incompetent teammates, so I don't really know what to tell you. I just wouldn't put the blame on the game itself.
OH SHITOH FUCK
>>320865801but what do they DO
>>320865801>the most annoying enemies, now worseI both hate it and love it
>>320865801>weakspot not visible from the frontI already hate the brundle
>>320866105It's probably inside the mouth or something, so you can only hit it when it's going to attack.
>>320866251>so you can only hit it when it's going to attackwell that wouldn't be much different than regular mactera
>>320866334Maybe, maybe not. Depends on the attack cycle and speed, I guess.Going by the actual name though, its specialty might be teleportation, given the connection to the Brundlefly.
>>320865978>I both hate it and love itThats my relationship with Magma Core. I hate it for the clusterfuck it is but I love it for the clusterfuck it is.
>>320865801what are the chances these are just generic slasher and guard analogues for mactera?
>>320866767I would hope not. The last "veteran" enemies we got serve as basically minibosses for waves, and make you change up your entire approach in order to fight them.If we just get more cannon fodder with the label of "veteran" I will be kind of mad.

>>320865801I thought they were adding brand new enemies as well? Is it seriously just reskins?
Look at your new favorite biome.
>>320868472https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.pcinvasion.com/deep-rock-galactic-update-33/amp/There’s a new flying creature in the art of this article and they also mention a deeptora wasp. So they might be keeping the new ones as a surprise.
>>320868472>Is it seriously just reskins?Do you consider the oppressor a praetorian reskin? Because that's the example they gave when they said they were adding new variants.
>>320868472>>320869584>>320869732>>320869843There’s this new flying thing.
>>320870019Looks like a neutral critter to me
>>320870019It's probably passive like the siltstrider
>>320870097>>320870098>make a brand new unique creature>it’s a passiveLiterally why?
>>320870019>driller with a beardthat shit is just asking for trouble

>>320869584>>320870019I can already feel my frames drastically decreasing.I wish I wasn't poor.
>>320869584Not gonna lie, it looks way cooler than the Dense Biozone reskin i thought it would be.
>>320873517That's the biome that's coming out after the one in the next update.The one we're getting immediately is the trees and vines map. That one is the not!Underwater map.
>>320869584purple shit looks like it's going to make it annoying spotting glyphids
>>320869584>neon biomeI can dig it
>>320874049Just look for the shadows blocking the purple shit.
>>320871219That sounds like elf talk to me.
>>320874010>That one is the not!Underwater map.Yes it is. We are getting Azure and Hollow this patch, the toxic swamp one is canned indefinitely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_hSYSAStVg
>>320875108>>320874010Wait, i kinda misread your post. I thought you meant this one was NOT the not!underwater biomeStill, we're getting both of them on the 4th.

>>320879007*oneshots an extra 2 mactera*nothin personnel
>>320878613thanks for ruining the weapons for me
>>320879007The triple beam makes it a lot more comfortable hitting fast moving targets like shellbacks if no one else is dealing with them. That and >>320879125Theoretical dps is nice but I prefer QoL and pubbing capability over it.
>>320878198damn, didn't know praetorians could be killed...
>>320880481the thing that makes BC so busted isn't the damage, it's their infinite penetration :^)
>>320865154I have time healing pods. 1 healing pod brings it to full in under 3 seconds, 2 under 1.5. Shits silly.

>>320869584This place is gonna be full of fucking jellies.
>>320887575Most people do not use "phobia" correctly anyway. They just dislike or are scared of spiders.

>>320887491>giant spider predatorsnever a thing, until recently in the rainforest, centipedes and dragonflies on the other hand got fucking huge>>320887575its mostly just spooky noses and jump scares, playing off humans natural fear response because thats how humans evolved, when you live in an area with unknown stalking predators
>>320888208It's only not shocking if you realize people are pussies
>>320869584wow how prettycan't wait to drill and blow it up because I'm not some pointy eared nature loving faggot
>>320888290>until recently in the rainforestcalling tarantulas "giant" is a bit of an oversell when you had dragonflies the size of fucking eagles
How do y'all build your fatboy?I usually go 21222 but am considering taking the area damage over more ammo.
>>320887491>Lungfish brain that remembers giant spider predators????
>>320889161Tarantulas are "giant" in comparison to the more common size of spiders: pretty fucking small.
I want medbay Bosco as a skin.
>>32088916130 cm is pretty big, most people will tell you that, and a dragonfly doesnt really have a lot of mass compared to the spider
>>320889665>considering taking the area damage over more ammoI used to do that, but I never felt like killing things was the issue. Better to have a spare shot. Otherwise my build is the exact same. Some will say you don't need more radius on T4, but what's the point of a nuke if you're not going to scorch as much earth as possible?
>I enjoy every class>I never level any of them meaningfully as a resultYou know I don't even have to specify a game here.
>>320889665Getting 5 ammo on Fatboy is the single most important aspect. It increases ammo per resupply to 3/5 instead of 2/4. Giving a freeshot and more uses per mission. AOE damage matters little because it won't hit a threshold of mattering. T2 damage gives +80 aoe damage up to 520-260 (max/min). This means you don't kill anything new in the radius that doesn't already die form the radiation in the first place. I always have used 2/1/2/2/X with proximity being a decent option, but really a matter of opinion. max ammo is the best way to go, easily.
>>320889665whyyou need all ammo mods to get 3 nukes from resupplies instead of 2, which is too good to give up over more nuke overkill
>>32088966512222 if you really wanna go maximum carnage
>>320865801This is what happens when devs release DLC for free. You get a bunch of rehashed reskinned shit.I’m fully expecting the devs to start charging for content after this update.
>Prefer weapon A>Have a much cooler looking skin for weapon BSorry autocannon, guess I'm back to using chaingun for a while
>>320891664Lmao are you serious? They could have provided actual new enemies instead of reskins if they had some sort of revenue.
>>320887575>>320888124>>320888290>>320889861t. arachniggersFucking typical behaviour, end yourselves arthropod loving scum
>>320892098there are specific sounds that you can play and it will naturally unsettle you, because youre a real human bean that is the result of your genetic lineage running and not dying to strange sounds in the dark
>still no glyphid/mactera queen>still no giant worm enemy >we get a bunch of reskins instead
>>320894231>no glyphid/mactera queensimp.
Today I will play Vermintide 2 and get my Grail Knight hat
>>320894231>still no giant worm enemyMy brain thinks this would be cool, but my gut tells me it would end up as an unholy combination of a cave trawler and a q'ronar shellback and everyone would immediately hate it endlessly
>>320894231There’s at least one brand new enemy. The weird crystal bug seen in the teaser hasn’t been revealed yet and the flying bug in the art is new. There’s also a deeptora wasp mentioned in the article.
>>320851087They look pretty nice but it still annoys me a bit that the design is basically just a reskin.
>>320896217That’s what you get for asking for free dlc.
>>320894621godspeed grail simp
>>320896217A reskin means the same abilities on another graphic designThis is basically the opposite of a reskin.
>>320896217thats not a reskin, since they act nothing like a normal one, and by your logic, dreadnoughts and oppressors are just reskinned praets, and guards, slashers, acid spitters, web spitters are just reskinned grunts, so i dont know why youre complaining now
>>320896068post the images of the fair lady wearing yoga pants
>>320897152Pretty much the only non-reskin that’s a glyphid is the menace. Everything else is just copy-pasted onto the standard glyphid body.
>>320897081>>320897152Oh right. I'm just nitpicking, but more variation in the design would still be nice.
>(at least) two entirely new enemies>two entirely new biomes. each with new environmental hazards>(at least) two new Mactera variants>several new Dreadnaught variants>QoL improvements to Salvage missions>significant changes to Elimination and Point Extraction missionsYup, this update is looking pretty fuckin good, dwarf bros
>>320889968Just primal blood without the teal.
>>320897817Different texture pattern and the color placement is inverted. It's not huge, but it is enough to be considered a distinctly different skin.
>>320897739>two entirely new enemiesThat’s not true. We’re only getting mactera and dreadnought reskins.
>>320897329well theres rollers, bombers, jellies, breeders, grabbers>>320897336i think things belonging to the same species should look similar to each other, like crabs or spiders
>>320890349>>320889867fair, I guess tarantulas are much more stocky than dragonflies, even the giant onesnot to say they aren't impressive just that compared to prehistoric shit we're lucky the o2 content in the atmosphere has gone down to a point they can't get bigger anymore
>>320898097Why didn’t they make a crab enemy unique to the azure Weald? It would fit in perfectly.
>>320632308That game trained me to hate warrior priests so well I'm probably gonna execute WP Saltzies on the spot.
>>320897739>QoL improvements to Salvage missionsInteracting with a mini mule to see it's legs sounds pretty fucking useless to me since we already see them on the minimap.Might help if you get a fucked up terrain generation but usually not an issue if your scout is actually doing his job.I'm scared what the PE changes might be. I get that not everyone likes it but the small cave and fast objective made it great for farming out Cargo Crates and it's pretty jam packed with bug killing action compared to the minutes of walking and digging other missions can sport.Elimination is pretty fucking boring most days. Taking forever to get around to the eggs then spending MORE time as your team levels shit out because they're too shit to fight a dreadnaught without favorable ground. Sometimes I just start it when I find it and hope the host isn't a turboautist that'll kick at the drop of a hat.

>>320898327It sounds to me like there's a lot of the core gameplay in a good chunk of the modes that you just don't like, which has nothing to do with this update. What parts of DRG DO you like?
>>320898327PE is fine for me actually. I don't really have a problem with it.I wonder what they plan to do.
>>320898097Sure, it's not that it doesn't make sense for them to have similar design but there's just so many glyphid variations at this point that something totally different would be a bit more exciting. Again, just nitpicking.
>>320898327no, we can build the fuel lines now
>>320892836I do love arthropods, but mainly crabs or moths
Why do people use negro words like this?>>320896963
>>320899035humanized is for plebs. REAL arthropod lovers will fuck an ACTUAL moth.
>>320897739excited to see the changes to salvage missions. actually building the fuel lines to connect the pod to the fuel sounds cool, but does that mean the fuel rods will drop further from the pod now to make building the fuel line be more interesting?
>>320898423See >>320898689No need to get your panties in a bunch.
>>320898608Every part except the one where I don't have friends to play with.Waiting on pubbies to get their ass in gear is excruciating.
>deeptora bough waspAny ideas on what this enemy will be like?
>>320899805flying meleelike a grabber but much faster and without any screeching, probably a smaller weakspot
I kinda want an enemy that can disguise itself as a mineral vein or somethingBut then again, TCFags will just blow them up instantly
>>320899805The devs said it functions like a babby omaran shellback that specifically tries to knock you around when you're above a certain number of meters above the ground.
Does flow rate increase freezing power or just damage on the cryo cannon?
>>320900530Uhhh yes to which part of the question
>>320900669bothbut it'll spend more ammoit's literally just a rate of fire increase
>>320897984>Likewise, in Hollow Bough Deeptora Bough Wasps and Stabber Vines will be what players need to watch out for. These enemies will try their best to stay hidden and take players by surprise, so your party will need to be on its toes.
>>320900918>enemies will try their best to stay hidden and take players by surprise, so your party will need to be on its toesabsolutely kino if this works as intendedalmost never do I actually feel like I need to keep an eye on my teammates and scan the area for threats, I would love to have that in this game.
>>320900218>>320900918based wasps knocking fag scouts off their dumb platforms
>>320901535Its also designed to hassle Gunners who are sliding back and forth on their ziplines carpetbombing swarms
>>320901783excellenthope they add something to deal with those sissy bunkerfags as well
>>320901912Oppressors and Bulks already exist
>>320897739Feels pretty good to be a drgchad.
>>320900218Did they describe any other enemies?
>>320902005oppressors can be burst down in 1-2 freezings and bulks are too rareuntil the random shitter drillers stop trying to bunker in my salvage missions, I will not be satisfied
>>320897739>changes to ... Point Extraction??? what did they say about PE
>>320902005I'd argue that the shellbacks are better bunker counters, since once one of em gets inside, it's like a powerball machineBut yea, it's too rare like those two
>>320857237>>320854912I'm inclined towards the "regular crankgun" with armor piercing slugs and ammo hoppers.People kept telling me that GPS would let that thing knock down CWs, but after looking at the damage breakpoint calculator it looks like you'd still need a STR pot to knock those down in any reasonable period of time. The standard chaingun obliterates any non-armored enemies, and can at least sandpaper SV in a relatively short period of time given its rate of fire. The reduced movement speed and short spin up delay with the gun makes it less safe than the average ranged weapon. With GPS, the low rate of fire IMO means you may be exposed for too long if the enemies that you need to kill aren't lined up for punch-through to knock them out simultaneously. With compression chamber, IMO it just eats up its ammo too fast and overkills the opponent in most cases, which might leave you lacking the ammo for a subsequent attack.IMO what makes ammo hoppers shine is the larger pool of ammo. With the larger ammo pool, you can afford to "waste" shots on trash to clear out a safety zone before bringing the gun to bear on whatever threat prompted you to pull out the chaingun in the first place. Once you kill that threat, you'll probably still have enough ammo left over that it won't be a big deal if you can't afford the time to immediately re-crank the gun. Or, if that target was a special, you get 4 seconds of free ammo to almost certainly clear out a big enough space to buy you time to re-crank the gun. You want the piercing shot to guarantee that the chaingun can mulch all of the trash mobs that were supporting CWs. When it comes to masses of SV, your choice of ranged weapon may be a better option for clearing them out than the chaingun. For example, the masterwork pistol with the piercing shot talent knocks SV down with ease. The choice between gaskets and capacitors comes down to how often the user uses their chaingun.
>>320902505you can actually de-shellback a bunker by placing a trench somewhere in the entrance tunnel. they'll just get stuck in the trench like a dumbass if they try to roll in
>>320715913I don't, I'm the goddamn Shade.
>>320778482Endless games are great af, if a bit niched.
Bulk detonator spawns need to be increased for all missions except maybe salvage (and even then). They're too rare even on haz5.
>>320778482I'm sad they are not making another Endless title.Although Humankind looks decent enough, I do like the shared lore between the endless games.
>>320797608Now that I'm 150h+ into the game, I gotta agree.
>>320903652Bulks are only good because they disruptive to the normal strats. Forcing them all the time more wouldn't be good as it just means you avoid the normal strats in general. Making them inconsistent means the plan could always fuck up, but it may not.
>>320903652fine but only if they make it so that their primary attack damages itselfgives more options to kill it instead of just shooting a bullet sponge
>>320901912More enemies that dig when?
>>320715913but Im the dwarf? and Im playing slayer... this doesnt make any sense
>>320904294I wanna see tunneling worms that just fly everywhere and fuck up the entire map
>speedrunning a double xp mining expedition on haz3>2 bulks show upI swear they actually rig positive modifiers to have more aggressive bulk/oppressor/praetorian spawns
>>320904606I'm more surprised you're playing on haz 3, are you teaching a friend?
They should make an enemy that shoots, or expels upon death, ricocheting spines that would pinball around inside bunkers.
>>320904776shut it nigger, way easier to squeeze in more xp if you run it on lower difficulties so it goes faster
What would the mactera version of a bulk detonator be?
>>320896963Honourless curs call fealty 'simping' because they fear commitment and duty>inb4 okay watever u say simp
>>320905003goo bomber variant that explodes when it dies
>>320905003Its the flying Chykka boss from Metroid Prime 2 but with a bulk sack dangling below it
>>320905105>bulk goo bomber>slow as fuck, fires globules of unstable goo that make dreadnaught-style explosions with goo in the crater>permanently coats an area in goo upon death with a huge explosion similar to a crassusI kinda want it
>>320900918Stabler Vines might just be environmental hazards on the ground. Deeptora Bough Wasps might just be like the hives in the sand zone.It's a good update but i'm hedging what's actually in it to what has been explicitly said
>>320905105its called magma bomber
>>320905319And you can slap it like gunk seeds.
So the new enemies are the tri-jaw, brunder, and deeptora wasp? That’s it?
>>320902013The chad drgfag discussing news versus the virgin vt2fag waiting for news
>>320905480If thatd be the case I want to be able to slap regular bulk detonators too
>>320905618A stronger dread variant and dread twins too.
>>320905003It wouldn't be mactera. It would be an "exploding naedocyte breeder." It would spawn exploding naedocytes, and the breeder would have more health and be highly resistant to freezing.
>>320905618and 2 dreadnought variants, heavy and thee twins
>>320905947And whatever this thing is.
>>320905915>exploding naedocytesDelete this RIGHT NOW
>>320905915I cant think of a more horrible enemy they could add to the game
>>320903652I can see 5 of them in a single mission sometimes.They're cool because they're a rare encounter that can fuck you. Normalizing them would ruin the magic.>>320904942Based because toasterfags will whine about their framedrops.
DRG needs a particle slider so I can crank it to 300%
>tfw no OMEN Bulk which has an OMEN stuck inside its back
>>320906054man, I literally cannot look at naked dwarf armsit feels so weird
>>320907016kinogenuinely though, how come this game doesn't have any fuckhuge, dangerous bosses that are barely big enough to fit in a cave and will chase dwarves around once they awaken it, destroying terrain if necessary
>>320907346DRG desperately needs a balrog.
>>320906096>>320906238>>320906334>When you can hear the exploding naedocyte breeder, but can't find it>flashbacks to the ending scene of Armored Core: Nexushttps://youtu.be/BwRNNXaPY0w?t=260
>>320907016>tfw no OMEN with legs that stomp around with a robovoice bleeping EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE
>>320907346That's literally what Dreadnaughts and Bulks do.But I get wanting a higher speed, more dangerous beast to charge at you.Unlike some games this one doesn't have stupid multiplicative exploits that let most players just one-shot every boss so I think it'd be fair to just have a giant meat wall that has individual parts that break off when damaged enough, instead of just making it invulnerable from the front.
>>320907346dreads are already pretty fast, and even if you outrun them, they'll just snipe you with their bullshit fireballs
>>320907346The weed is already a monster to deal with and its IMMOBILE. What you're pitching might be impossible to balance.I like the idea sure but making it feasible?
>tfw no weaponized tech-glyphids that escaped their holding cells within a top secret research laboratory deep within hoxxes
>>320908212weed is only a pain in the ass cuz it can regenerate while fucking invincibleimagine if dreads could regen their health while their ass shield was up
>ommoran doesn't grow rock legs after you rip the heartstone out and slowly chase you all the way back to the drop pod firing lasers
>>320908342I've been wanting some kind of ancient ruins biome for this game since it came out of alpha. God I hope we get it someday.
>>320908109>>320907971Thats the idea behind them, sure, but neither of them apply enough pressure to be taken seriously unless you somehow manage to get in close quarters with them (and even then the dreads are pushovers, but maybe the variants will change that)The idea I want is an enemy that will make even the largest caves feel like close quarters, and they'll apply that pressure and horror that a bulk gives off when it's right next to you, regardless of where it is. I want an enemy that I can be truly afraid of in this game. Something that perhaps isn't common, but when it shows up, you are FUCKED.
>>320896326>updates are now free dlcthis is your brain on vermintide 2
>>320909447>Something that perhaps isn't common, but when it shows up, you are FUCKEDso basically you want an RNG lmao you lose mechanic
>>320909630I want an RNG "are you on your A game" check.
>>320909875After pubbing for some time I assure you thats what bulks are there for.I don't have trouble with them when I'm playing with my 3 friends of course
how is subata allowed to be so shitit's literally the worst weapon in the game
>>320910063Well, I want something for people who solo EDDs and stuff, rather than people who play nothing but haz3
>>320910358Goes to show you how driller can get the worst weapons, shitty alternate grenades and bunch of boring and useless overclocks but still rock out with his cock out because he's driller.
>>320910358Explosive reload makes it usable. Still not as good as the utility of EPC though.
>>320908818the dozer should have a top speed that's at least twice as fast, with flying rocks and laser spires popping up as you haul ass to the heart stone. The current travel sections are snoozefests.
>>320899191'negro' is a nigger word you fucking nigger lover.
I just discovered that I like co-op games, and came across Helldivers, is it worth a try? I read that the community campaign system is a hard filter for newbs, is that true?
>>320864706It's one of those sad weapons where you have to be really good to be able to enjoy them. If you only land headshots it's probably one of the most ammo efficient weapons in the game, but if you don't, it's efficiency tanks really hard.

>>320912703It's a power move, they don't care if they die if they get to style on you.
