Post your cave rollercoasters bros
saw they nerfed breach cutter, is it still usable? glad everything else was a buff
>>148149From what I heard the width is nerfed by 0.5 meters, reload by about 0.4 seconds, and mag size by 1. Damage was not touched, but you now need to build a bit differently to compensate for the nerf
Bought the Roughneck pack, but my Driller doesn't have the paint scheme????
Is the spawn rate buged for the oil refining? Im getting swarms the likes of which ive never seen.
>TCFwhy does this existwhy not give driller gunner's shield why you're at it, might as well let driller do everything
>try out escort solo to try it out>as scoutThat last portion gets REALLY rough when the laser pillars pop out, goddamn.
>>149290I'd say it's still not out of the realm of possibility if you're able to hit in mid-air near the top where the crystals are thinnest, but I would say it'd be hard for any solo player since those things can just absolutely melt Doretta's metal plates
>>149290>host a pub as the driller>let my team handle the trash while i drill the pillars off before they even get to damage to drillits not so hard bro
>>148491nvm they patched it
What's some general advice for someone who just finished the beginning assignment?Like what should I focus on to have a good time? So far I've unlocked the Trade Terminal and have been dressing up my dwarfs, but I know there's loads of other stuff to unlock.
>>150548Just hop into some lobbys. maybe filter so you dont get the harder difficulty, the unlocks will happen on their own basically
>>150548You could probably work towards unlocking guns for the classes that you play, before going for the first promotion to unlock the endgame content
>>150548The first thing you should upgrade is your flares. I'm not kidding. Just try each class at least once and then decide on one and keep playing it 'til you unlock all the mod tiers for your equipment. Promote that dwarf and then enjoy leveling the others or doing deep dives. If you're somewhat comfortable in haz 4 you'll be able to do a normal deep dive. Do your weekly quests always and whatever other class missions and you'll soon enough be unlocking all kinds of shit.
>spend 30 mins on Salvage mission>game bugged and didn't spawn the last mini leg
>>151151salvage missions are the worst. doing one right now for my friggin assignment
Are there are other games in this genre you guys would recommend? DRG really rekindled my love for it, but I would like to introduce some variety - I know the obvious one everyone knows like l4d, Vermintide, Killing Floor. Any that focus on the 'hunker down and hold out' aspect?
>Deep Rock Ghoulactic Halloween EventOH SHIT
Bros i dont know if i should drop 30 bucks on this game, i pirated it and had a blast for 10h, now i dont want to play more to dont spoil the fun for when i buy it, i probably wont play it with frens, is it worht the price?
>>151571yes you cheap bastard
>>151571Even if you don't get it right now, it's most likely going to be on sale within a week for the Halloween sale
>>151477left 4 dead survival and killing has the hunker down and hold out aspect. maybe payday 2 holdout mode? how about the mvm mode in tf2
>>150548Most of the stuff unlocks when you promote a dwarf, by getting him to 25 and finishing the promotion assignments. Enjoy the ride, get used to everyone.
>>151477A lot of the loud missions in payday 2 are you protecting a drill or something from waves of cops.
>>151571What >>151586 said. Someone posted a chart in the last thread and DRG has literally gone on sale like every two weeks since March. Either be patient and pick it up or just drop the $30, I've paid $60 for games I haven't liked half as much as I like this.
any anons want to play. no idea how to play together.
>>148149they added fucking pumpkins spawning 3 swarmers coating every square inch of every fucking cave so they basically removed the breach cutter from the game
>>152091Hotfix incoming to decrease the number of pumpkins. Turns out it was a glitch in the cave gen, as confirmed by the dev on steam forums
>>152130That's actually really funny, I never would've guessed it was a bug
Does the Engineer SMG get better with upgrades? Cause I only just unlocked it after kitting out my shotgun to the point it eats praetoreans and shits them out and honestly it seems like a straight downgrade from the shotty.
>>152236It has good ammo economy and bigger effective range out of the box, alongside having a generally similar DPS to the shotty, alongside a DoT with a slow-down effect. Overall it's a decent side grade to the shotty, and has its uses, but shotty beats it in burst damage
>Aggro the Bet-C>Bring it towards the DrilldozerSome people must be actually mentally ill
Why does it has to die when the mision is done :(?the beeps it makes are so adorable it actualy makes me sad when it explodes at the ends
>>154401Pretty sure it’s still alive, you can see the head moving. Management just doesn’t care enough to get it back out.
>>154401Management gets far more money from the Ommoran than what they spend on a Drilldozer, so they just leave them in the caves. I fully expect them to add a rogue Doretta as an enemy next update, whose head you can claim as a prise
I only feel worthy of getting the MK5 armor after getting a promotion
>>155548I bought the Mk 5 engie suit before even reaching class level 10.
>>148629because EPC charged shot is fucking worthless otherwise compared to regular shot or a subata
Escort Duty is so fucking overtuned on haz 5 compared to literally every other mission type, especially solo.I don't think I've failed anything but it for the past several days. Halloween swarmers don't help.
How do I make the Driller's pistol actually feel good to use??
salvage missions not spawning extra legs anymore has fucked me over goddamnit
>>148629Because the reality is aside from scouts grapple hook and drillers power drills there really isn't any thought put behind what class has what utility.
>>154401>salvage mission variants where you retrieve all the equipment you left behind in other expeditions.
new patch fixed salvage mule legs
new player here, whats tcf?
>>156969Thin containment field, upgrade for the drillers alternate secondary that lets him mine with it
>>150903Not him but how do I upgrade flares? Equipment terminal shows no available upgrade. But I've only been playing gunner
>>157215they removed flare upgrades a few updates ago, they come as default now
heat pipe or magnetic cooling unit for EPC? i mainly use it for mining
>Join just as the mission is starting>pick Driller, but in fact am a Gunner instead>new mission>Game freezes during loadingI JUST WANNA DO THE WEEKLY CORE HUNT
>>153991happened to me once, she ran out of fuel but just kept driving around like a retard then got frozen at the start
>See you in hell and Berzerker don't affect power drillsWell color me disappointed
>>148629t. Angry scout mainDont worry you're still needed to, uh, put up lights
How's everyone else's experience with the game on Xbox or crossplay? I transferred my steam save to the W10 version to play with a friend and I have yet to see a single promoted dwarf or H5 lobby.It's fun playing with a friend who couldn't on PC, but damn I'm getting bored of exclusively doing H2 and H3 missions.
Is it possible to play with people on the Steam version when you have the W10/Games Pass version? I want to play with some anons.
>>161911Fuck, I guess I'll just wait for a sale for the Steam version.
>>147983Will this game be alive by the time for the next sale ?
>>162059More than likely, considering it always stays at a stable enough playerbase to live, not to mention the hype of the new update looming around the corner in January
>>148629more like >EPCwhy does this exist because it's the worst fucking gun in the game and tcf mining is the only niche it hasa niche which is hard to learn, ammo inefficient, done just as well by engie/scout working together honestly the gun needs to just be dropped altogether or given a complete rework, or at the very VERY least scrap the overheating mechanic because it does nothing but irritate. just put a delay between firing charged shots
>>154182>driller drops his c4 by the dozer
>>148149there is only one width mod now and the base width is worsethis is the only thing you really need to worry aboutmag size is not a concern for as long as return to sender exists, and the damage wasnt nerfed eitherso long as you're not braindead and you know how to conserve ammo (which you should understand after playing for like 10 minutes) you should be good
>>147983>My name is Yoshikage Drilla. I am 33 years old. My compartment is in the northeast section of the rig, where the bar is, I am not married. I work as an employee of Deep Rock Galactic, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don’t smoke, but constantly drink.>I’m in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a pint of Glyphid Slammer and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up.>I'm trying to explain that I'm a dwarf who wishes to live a very thunderous life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't leave any dwarf behind.
Are engies the best murderers? I doubt it's just me being better than everyone, because I literally keep getting at least 50+ kills on everyone else and that's when they're good, on shit teams I get more than my entire team combined. Also, I hear the plasma cutter is now not shit. Is that stock or with some overclock? I haven't played in like a year, so I don't have any overclocks other than the ones I got this past couple of days.
>>163498Yes, with the trade off that getting good a amount of kills requires you to build up bdfore the enemies arriveI feel that most of my kills are grunts getting breach cutter'd or my turrets aimbotting shockers and swarmers
I came for rollercoasterscome on shill me you drunk dwarven bastards
>tfw this will never be part of the ostWhy even livehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY-Ipu26KuA&ab_channel=PatientZero
>>162676lol EPC is great. Hard Hitter + Plasma Burn or a similar high damage thermal build with cryo cannon to proc thermal shock is a legitimate build and is satisfying to play. TCF is also actually very ammo efficient. It does 240 fire damage and with a max ammo build you can eek out 33 charged shots + detonating shot for 7920 total damage which is great for a secondary and it does it in a sizable AoE.The part where TCF is completely shit is projectile enemies that are focused on you since they'll detonate the charged shot.Remote mining is undersold because anything that expedites the mission is a big deal. Whether it be bringing a KD'd dwarf down, lost equipment, aqs, minerals, even crassus gold, it can speed the process up nicely and save you C4s as well.It's one of the most interesting weapons IMO
How do you beat the machine event with the huge totem/pillar things that shoots a bunch of shit in all directions? We always wipe the floor on this one...
>>163796Dont get hit lol
>>163796You don't need to stand on the platforms the whole fight playing DDR while the other parts of the tower slowly rotate their way into them and they die horribly.If there's a drone replicator, make sure one of you is dedicated to shooting them out of the air.Prioritize a single tower segment, the beam layer at the bottom is always a cause of inexperienced players to wipe on.Once that's dead, the rest is piss easy to avoid.It helps if you terraform the arena to your liking before the fight even starts; safe trenches to move in, elevated areas to fire from, etc.
>>158603I remember this one fondly
>>147983This is the best/only game I have played in 3 years
What's the difference with the elite deep dive? I just finished my first deep dive.
> Playing Elimination with Shield Disruption mutation. > Have 4 man team, start fighting first Dreadnaught. > Not going too well, one player quits mid-fight. > Keep on fighting and beat dreadnaught without him. > Joined by new player, finish the mission. A minor story, but who else has "never tell me the odds" stories?
>>151571Its "free" right now if you have the xbox game pass on PC.
>>165573>doing a haz4 egg hunt>cant find any good nitra deposits>barely make it through every wave with my flamethrower almost dry>a fucking bulk detonator comes to rip my ass apart>panic like a retard and corner myself with no drill fuel or nitra to refill>prepared to go down fighting with c4>CALVARY IS HERE>engineer fucking obliterates the wave with a fat boy and some sentries>scraped a victory after finding a fuck ton of nitra just hiding behind some pillarsyou bet your ass that the engineer was chugging the finest craftable beers once we got back
>>148629Dangerously Redpilled.TCF Should be removed from the game, it makes driller able to do literally everything, every other class is pointless while TCF is in the game.
Thinking about buying this game but not sure if I'll get bored of this quickly just like I did with vermantide 2.
>>166178As someone who played both, I got tired of VT2 well before I got bored of DRG, and the latter was mostly due to the dry spell of updates after I unlocked everything. It's a blast to play for the first 100 hours at least.
> Be playing escort mission.> Not 60 seconds after starting Doretta up she drills into a wall and triggers a tyrant-weed fight.> *Sigh* Great, now we've gotta' deal with thi-> Doretta drills straight into the core and kills it instantly.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHOW DOES THAT DRILL TASTE YOU FAT GREEN SPAZ!/??!1/11HAHAHAHJAHAJJSAHAH> Keep on playing.> Kill a golden detonator. > Find a backpack with a pretty alright driller skin.> Level my gunner up to 25 after we beat the mission.Oh, that was a fun mission.
>>166190d-doretta, i kneel..
This game has been recommended to me in a few threads. Someone redpill me.

>Idly smack tamed bug with a pickaxe a couple times while waiting for Drop Pod>Its owner downs me and the team leaves me to dieWhy are Steevefags like this? They get autistically overprotective of their tamed bug to the point of TKing you even if you shoot it on accident. The Pickaxe doesnt even deal any damage to Steeve with its 99% friendly fire reduction GSG gave it to stop you fucking manchildren crying that Drillers were killing tamed bugs via sticky flamesChrist I wish they never added this shitty perk
>>166190made this for you

>Be scoot>hooking to help a downed teammate>Ice the glyphids around him and start rezzing>suddenly>I CALL THIS MY GRENADE-GRENADE>I'm on low>We both get downed
>>166269These videos suck dick.
>>160989Every other class is rendered redundant because of TCF, scouts just have it the worst.
>>166709>Engineers ability to set up chokepoints, defenses, and control the flow of enemies>Gunners point defense, massive constant AOE, high single target damage, and ability to clutch with shieldsexplain
>>166729Driller can do all of that and more, the only thing gunner has over driller is the shield.
>>166709i havent really touched driller but what does tcf even do that makes it so good?
>>166747Lets you mine from any distance you want, it essentially makes every other class utility pointless since driller can do everything instantly from a safe distance.
>>166739>Driller>High sustained single target damage>Building any kind of defense besides a b*nkerAre you high?
>>166748Forgetting to mention limited ammo cost and how much practice it takes to mine anything past 20m
>>166748wait what the fucki really need to start leveling my driller thenwhat else should i put onto my plasma charger once i get it?
>>166750Yeah and RJ250 takes a lot of practice but its a useless piece of shit compared to Fat Boy/Hyper Propellant even when you do master it.Nice deflection though.
>>166749I can tell you have never played driller in your life if you think he has low single target damage.
>>166755Compared to gunner? Absolutely Gunner can kill a Haz5 praet in about a secondAlso drillers max single target build uses the subata so bye bye tcf
>>166774>Throwing axe and satchel charge existsPssh nothin personnel gunner, ill just take your job too.
>>166824>sustainablenice 8 kills you got with your axes
This sniper build I made is kinda slow and doesn't really deal with big targets like I thought it could.Is there a better build to get kills efficiently with the rifle?
>>166907For a start take hollowpoint instead of armor breaking.If you are using the M1000 you should be shooting for weakspots, if you are shooting armor you are doing it wrong.
glyphids absolutely seething
rock and stoats brother
>>166095>just get rid of one of the most iconic weapons in the entire game>neuter the drillers "heavy duty excavation" theme because I'm a salty scoutnah fuck off shitter scout. Your class is just garbage and needs some buffs. But I've run across plenty of you who don't know how to melee into a wall that I can't feel sorry for you. Bunch of platform cucks the lot of you.
>>167131They need a new enemy to ruin bunkers. They have dets and opressors, they need to dig more often.
does this mean no shield at all?
>>166824Driller is the best class but he hasn't got shit on the Gunner's single target damage. The Autocannon is unquestionably the best gun in the game, Big Bertha is so fucking busted it's not even funnyYes Impact Axes and C4 are powerful but they're not at all sustainable. They're spike damage at best, and the low ammo limits their applicability. If you want max damage C4 you can only carry *two* of them. That doesn't at all stack to how much raw DPS Gunner can pump out.(Also I personally prefer the Neurotoxin Grenade for Driller, assuming you're not a cryocuck I find it does more for me than the axes.If your Gunner is doing his job and focusing specials, you don't *need* single target damage as Driller because your job is clearing out trash mobs)
>>167131>B*nkers in 2020
do I buy this?
>>167270yeah but you take less damage and heal more so its "slightly" more bearablei still will never touch that shit in a haz 4-5 mission though
>>167273Bonkers did nothing wrong.
>>167287yes, it is best gun
>>167272i personally keep axes on my driller so i can kill stray preatorians and spitters without wasting an entire barrel of fuel that i couldve used to nuke half a swarm
>>167180t. buttblasted driller main nervous his crutch might get removedif TCF has been in the game this long I doubt the devs are going to take it out, you don't need to be so defensive of your main class dipshit.
>>167308closed game already but I think this is what I modded it withdefinitely sure I took extra ammo, armor piercing and +20% damage when at max rate of fire
>>167272Big Bertha is easily the most underrated OC in the game.That shit rips through Praetorians so fast its insane, I feel bad for the people still using the Minigun.
>>167552Agreed. I unlocked that a few weeks ago, tried it out, and I've never looked back since then. I wish I had a good OC for the BRT though.
>>167563what build are you guys using with big bertha... I have big bertha but I switched back to minigun because I found it underwhelming. I must be doing something wrong
>Scout is focus shotting grunts>Driller is using his EPC to kill swarmers>Gunner is using his shield to mine gold>Engineers turrets are shooting in all directions
>>167716>Gunner is using his shield to mine goldwait gunners can do that?
>>167687Personally I do 3,1 or 3, 1, 1, 1
>>167206I wish there was a way the game could detect that you are bunkering and automatically spawn a detonator on your ass.
>>167765That would be nuts. If they could just develop a dedicated terrain digger that would end all bunkerfaggotry.
>>167780some type of a worm that functions like a driller, leaving behind tunnels that are too small for dwarves but large enough for grunts and swarmers...
>>167765hacky solution: invisible bug that pathfinds towards a dwarf really fast and spawns a detonator if it can't collide with it in a certain amount of time
>>167813t. wow dev
>Love the minigun>It's the only weapon I don't have any OCs for
>>167875I have 15 OCs and 6 of them are breach cutter.I hate breach cutter.
ammo or damage on lead storms second upgrade?is 600 ammo worth -2 damage?
>>167723Yes they can place their shield over ore and then mine it
>>167812Yeah, that's the ticket. It could still be countered with platforms but as long as holding the bunker is more active I'm happy.
>>167882600 rounds come in handy in deep dives, but you won't melt praetorians as fast.
>>167415anon please, for how much longer are you gonna be assblasted since you found a decent driller in a lobby? tcf mining build has shit ammo count and can only dab on a few macteras from time to time
>>167527if you want extra damage at max rof, you should take lighter barrel assembly over accuracyalso get shrapnel rounds over armor breaking every single timeother than that, decent build
>>167309>He's magdumping the CRSPR onto specials

> Playing Escort. > Call in supply pod. > Oppressor spawns and walks under drop point. > Supply pod kills oppressor. This game just keeps on giving.
>>168121> Playing Escort. > Call in supply pod.>Dozer suddenly changes direction>pod lands right on it>one thread is instantly deadH-haha, nice...
>>168121you would think R&D would think of some way to properly weaponize supply pods by now
>>168230Hey, HEEEEEY, Why don't we put guns on Molly?
>>168234>that would cut the companies profit margins more than your funeral costs so tough luck miners
>>168103yes, blowing holes in the environment is the classes identity
>>168135unless it's low O2, why would anyone call a supply pod WHILE the dozer is moving
>>168300because the scout pressed the fucking button when everyone is getting ready
>>168305>scoutok understandable have a nice day
>>168230Active perk that lets you put a supply beacon on a bug instead of on the ground once a mission. Or maybe just a decently long cool down.
>30 solo missions completedjust 70 more to go haha...
>>168423do people legitimately play solo?i only ever did a handful as a greenbeard before i jumped into multiplayer
>>168234>How dare you suggest such a thing? There are perfectly good albeit corrupted BET-Cs down there. Now stop daydreaming and get back to work!
>>168423Solo is boring. This is one of the few games where playing with randoms is super fun.
>>168425I'm a greenbeard, I do them for the weapon assignments when servers aren't available owing to my ungodly play hours and timezone, though really they're public games where I'm just by myself.
>>168425Normally not but I did the 100 for the cheevo. Doing solo on Haz 5 is probably one of the hardest challenges on this game though, I kind of enjoyed it for that but it was nerve wracking sometimes.
>>168454damn that really sucks anoni cant even bring myself to play alone since the silence is depressing
>>16845010,000,000 IQ right there
>>168425I do when i want to be able to pause the game halfway through.
>>168466>the silence is depressingI play scout with a Touhou x Eurobeat soundtrack in the backgroundYou have no idea how fast i'm going
>>168511by silence i don't actually mean silenceits just the game doesn't feel the same if you cant hear the friendly fire lines while fighting a wave or the sound of the gunner going killing a stray praetorian while your celebrating the driller for finding compacted gold
>>168520If every dwarf doesn't ping the compressed gold or bittergem at least five times, are you even playing the right game?
>>168538i would if the scout didnt snatch anything that isnt bolted down so he can shove it into mollys ass
>>168541He's just a little bit too enthusiastic about doing his job, anon
>its a randumbs cant concentrate fire on a dreadnought episodeI hate reruns
>>168606>scout has dreadnought aggro>keeps grappling over it to shoot at the weakpoint, making it spin aroundkill me
>>168606>play elimination as a team of 4 drillers>we all have the cryo cannon equipped>gameplay devolves to everyone freezing the dreadnought then dumping axes and c4 on it during the few moments it is frozen
>dozer starts digging its way to the next cave>we're all stacked up>driller c4s all of us and quitsThis has happened to me like 3 times now, I had to start using IW on every class because of them
>>149290You can aim at the lasers to tell Bosco to mine them.Aim at the top of the lasers since breaking the tip counts as destroying the whole thing, that way you dont have to wait for multiple hits to take it down.It's really cool the fact that in the new missions you can tell Bosco to enter defense mode or build mode and if you tell it to mine something once its done it will return to its previous mode.
>drilldozer bugs out and doesn't show its actual health status>suddenly fail mission because nobody was repairing drilldozer because we all thought it was finethis happen to anyone else?
>>168719nah escort is a buggy as helli've had a few times where only the host could repair doretta or the game forgets to show fuel canister progress in the ui
>>168659>get aggro myself>evade it while keeping it exposed to team>theyre not shooting it>after a minute they start shooting it>they stop as soon as the armor is goneare there /vm/ or /drg/ lobbies cause Im getting cancer
>>167272>>167552I remember using Big Bertha once and it kinda threw me off from what I usually useI think it was because it decreases AoE and AoE damage and just deals more direct damage?Sell me on BB
>>167294>>167270iirc it actually just boosts max hp by 25 and also spawns more red sugar around instead of reducing damage
>>168741it can kill regular grunts in two shots, three if you're not hitting weakpoints.
>join refinery mission>start building pipe up an exposed staircase in the wall that the driller host already made that leads toward the pump>tells me to stop>starts putting the pipe through a tunnel that leads around a bend back into that same ramp anyway>tell him he just made it unnecessarily complicated>kicked
>>168741BB got an accuracy buff and the thunderhead got a buff to its default splash radius. I went with rate of fire, ammo, splash radius, and more damage on max rate of fire upgrades and it shreds single targets and still two shots swarmers in a 2.1 radius. Top it off with the perk Born ready and you can switch to your preferred sidearm to reload while running and gunning. As much as I'll always love minigun I have to admit BB does it better.
>>168735Not that I know of, not sure how one would set one up either.Hope that helps!
>spend 20 minutes kicking barrels into the drop pod to get the achievement>right as I'm kicking the second to last barrel into the drop pod I enter the drop pod a little bit and the game completely skips the countdown and starts the missionAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>168840I saw that DRG supports some way of tie-in with discord where you can share lobbiesmust mean theres a hidden lobby ID and some sort of console command to connectmight ask the devs to implement it
>>168735Just make a password-protected lobby and post the password here. Thread's too slow to get consistent response, though.
>>168863I remember browsing for haz 5 missions and seeing a /coopg/ related lobby name somewhere. Feel like all you would have to do is just have specific lobby names and password it with the usual to find games with /vm/ anons.
>>168719yesterday one of the fuel canisters disappeared, we had to restart only to die 55 minutes in, in the escape
>>168735Want to know a secret? There's bound to be shitters here or anywhere else too
>>168950Ive played with /vg/enerals and the bar is always higher than randoms, you can be sure people are aware of basic shit and after some time you get regulars where you know upon joining they arent retards
New Dwarf, I started as scout after reading the general here so I didnt fuck up. Heres our lollercoaster that we made for the 2 min achievement. I have a video of it but no bandwidth to upload it.
>>169001Also my buddy died on a zipline and had to rejoin and spawned in the terrain.
>>169002My first ever drill rig was at the bottom of a sharp slope, and on the other side of the slope, detonators had made three gigantic hiroshima craters that the pipes ran over.
>>169001Nice, you guys went for a real coaster. I just put on my best Mr. Bones impression for that achievement. Sucked doing it in Sandblasted too because a very early part of it was right next to a sand launcher so I lost the first 150 meters of track or so because I just could not time it to go past when the launcher wasn't active.
>>169004There was actually very little thought put into ours, my friend just tried to make it go as far as possible, digging through walls and shit, yours is much cleaner.
>>169010Is shield link based?
>>169187I use it on every class and I'm very based, so probably yes.
How do we fix vampire? More health for larger bugs? A much higher health gain but at a cooldown?
>>167272and if big bertha was busted then carpet bomber is Karl's bollocks insane
>>169213Based? Based on what? In your dick? Please shut the fuck up and use words properly you fuckin troglodyte, do you think God gave us a freedom of speech just to spew random words that have no meaning that doesn't even correllate to the topic of the conversation? Like please you always complain about why no one talks to you or no one expresses their opinions on you because you're always spewing random shit like poggers based cringe and when you try to explain what it is and you just say that it's funny like what? What the fuck is funny about that do you think you'll just become a stand-up comedian that will get a standing ovation just because you said "cum" in the stage? HELL NO YOU FUCKIN IDIOT, so please shut the fuck up and use words properly you dumb bitch

whats the best EPC build for damage or is it worthless for that?
>>169435It's worthless for damage, take explosive reload on subata and 2-shot bugs
>drink pot o gold>find a crassus sphere
anyone watch the dev stream? what was the puzzle thing?

Whats the difference between the normal and elite deep dives?
>detonator spawns next to drilldozer during hearthstone defense on Haz 5Oh no no no
>>169771feed your scout to the detonator and maybe itll go awayhe's dead weight anyway
>>169674not him but why does EDD haz5/5.5 feel easier than regular haz5I haven't failed too many EDD in my time with randoms but i've always noticed more often regular haz5 randoms we get sent straight into the hottest drop of all hoxxes and wipe in a minute sometimesmaybe its because EDD lets you stack up nitra on the haz4.5 segment
>>169796I was scout
>>169801hopefully you taste good enough to save your team
>>169798EDD is easier because everyone just bumrushes the objective instead of trying to explore or find interesting shit that doesnt exist.
>>169798Casuals don't play Elite. The people who are joining up on an EDD all assume that their teammates are there to win and are at least semi-competent.Regular servers are a total crap-shoot.
>>169863I've seen plenty of low levels in EDDs that ruin the lobby with everyone else having to carry the 4th weight.
How good is it bros
>>169613I better not open a lootbug just to get my face covered in cum
>>169953>you can get overclocks from machine eventsWtf I guess I always got cosmetics because I was far into the game already? And big bertha is pretty good.

fuck the EDD, that pumpjack on the top of the map is retarded
>>168761>he doesn't make his pipelines as complex as possible for the ultimate rollercoaster experienceYou deserved that kick, fucking leaf lover
>>169187One of the best perks in the game, literally just press E on a teammate to give them an extra fifty hitpointsThe passive shield regen is a shitty passive tho, you shouldnt be hugging your teammates in combat to begin with
>>170051>he's retarded and wastes time making reddit coasters
Does anyone play the Xbox Game Pass version? I got the 1 month for £1 thing to test out the game
>>170328what do you mean version, dont all share the same servers?
>>170330I was under the impression that Steam players couldn't cross-play with the MS Store/Game Pass version and vice versa, or am I wrong?
>>170331No you're mostly right, MS store and Xbone players can play with each other, but Steam is on its own.
>>170135"HURR LE LEDDIT COASTERS XDDD MOM I SAID IT AGAIN"Try having some fun for once? Assuming that's even still possible for a turboautist like you Not everyone is pouring sweat over their keyboards trying to win, I bet it wasn't even on a high Hazard Level
>>170330>>170331the game is p2p there are no dedicated serversbut you also cannot crossplay between steam and win10/xbox

I can't wait to auto-kick people wanting to make le reddit coaster so bosco can finish the mission for me.
Why is this game so infested with brainlets? I even find prestiged dwarves that still can't shoot flares/platforms or respond to pings
>>170587Less than 1% of the playerbase plays haz5 regularly.
>>170612how bad is the retard infestation in haz 5? Am I going to regularly be getting no star greenbeards and 40+ blue ranks that some how don't know what to do yet, like I am in haz 4?
>>170628I play Haz 5 on almost all of my games, the only exception is if its a promotion assignment for some shitty salvage mission that I just want to get cleared ASAP.I'd say like 90% of the people that join my games are competent (OCE Region, can't speak for other regions) I think the majority of the playerbase is genuinely too afraid to try Haz5 so most of the people joining you will be competent players that know it isn't really that hard.Most of the time when I have had bad players join we won anyway and they didn't even realize they joined a haz5 game.
>>170632what are haz 5 missions like anyway?
>>170636they don't stop coming and they don't stop coming and they don't coming and they don't stop coming and they don't stop coming and they don't coming
>>170636More bugs, faster bugs, deadlier bugs. They're a little tankier too, but only a little
>>170641Are there any significant damage breakpoints that change from haz4 to 5?
>>170642I'm not sure, my haz five experience is limited to a few elite deep dives. I can't give you an specifics, but you'll notice that the bugs are just a little tougher. Not to the extent that they feel like bullet sponges, but enough that it's noticeable.Also there's way less nitra, so you better be scouring every inch of the cave, pickaxing every lootbug you see, and don't dawdle or you'll be armpit deep in oppressors with just your dick in your hand
>>170642Not really. The biggest change is how fast the bugs become. It's harder to outrun them and to maintain distance.
>>170642Nope, speed of bugs and how many of them spawn is the main thing.It's really not that hard if you abuse the AOE stuff like mini nuke PGL/Sticky Fuel/Carpet Bomber, those weapons don't care if 100 bugs spawn or if 1 bug spawn they are going to clean house either way.
haz 5 missions should give more of an XP bonusif you're grinding XP haz 4 is more efficient
>>170638>play mission solo>is literaly like you post>other dudes join the game >is much more calmisnt this shit like adjusted for number of players
>>170704it is, but if the players are competent it is fine
>>170511theres still a game coordinator for the handshake etc
>>170704it is, but the game overweights how useful bosco is so the change in bugs between 1 player and 2 players is minimal
>>170704Solo Haz 5 is absolute hell, although I kind of like it for the challenge. The problem is you get just as many bugs on solo as on duo, the only difference is a slight decrease in damage, but they're just as tough and fast. For solo I would 100% recommend Steve to at least distract some of the bugs.
on april fools they should make it so that every lootbug killed summons a bulk detonator
>>170912Or it just explodes like one
>>170912>equip It's a Bug Thing>get kicked from every lobbyI'd love to see that
>>169437>>169435lol, f this guy. Take heat pipe, charge speed and full ammo and TCF the gunts. Explosive reload is shit where it counts and only good as a meme

>>171050sounds pretty funone of these days ill bring myself to play haz 5
>>171068if you're able to clear haz 4 without much trouble then haz 5 will bring a refreshing challenge back
>>171068haz 5 really is all about reacting to enemies since it punishes you for not paying attention to your surroundings. the speed boost enemies get is nothing if you know how to kite and corral them just right.
>stage 1 EDD has an oil well way above the refinery That was annoying to build with the engie building plats up to the hole to me drilling the rest of the way but the roller coaster we made was pretty fun at least.
>>171238>on-site refining stage 1>oil well way above the refineryat least they let the worst part of the mission be the first right?
>>171250Stage 2 is Escort and eggs with 2 stops and lethal enemiesStage 3 is eggs and mini mules with shield disruption.
>>171255hot damn, this is gonna be rough with randoms.>escort with lethal enemiesdoes the damage boost from that also apply when they hit doretta?
>>171258I don't think so. Considering our engie was able to keep up enough with the damage to keep her alive solo repairing in the last little bit of the health bar while the rest of us were down. Considering the amount of bugs there were I don't think they were doing extra damage but I may be wrong.
>>171261Nice, thanks for the info nigga.
Did they change something about gunner's shield generator? It feels sluggish.
>>171072>>171101well i played a some haz 5 and i can see why people like it so muchit legitimately feels like some starship troopers type shit when you see the floor and walls get completely coated by waves of glyphids with an actual risk of running out of nitra for ammoplus people talk in chat and stick around for multiple missions more often than in haz 3-4
>>171281generally haz 5 hosts tend to be pretty chill if you know what you’re doing. be wary of the shitter hosts that are around rank 100 something or so and immediately start shit talking the moment you do something they don’t like.
>>171281yeah it's definitely a different vibemuch more intense for when I feel like I want to play that kind of waylike the anon above says though beware of the dunning kruger fags who take this game too seriously, challenge implies failure is possible nd failure can be fun too
>>171289>doing haz 4 mission just me and a friend>bulk detonator lurking in the tunnels with us somewhere>fren gets mobbed and goes down outside of the tunnel>start hauling ass to him to save him>just before I leave the tunnel I'm in the bulk detonator digs a hole up from below directly under me causing me to fall to my deathLost a shitload of jadis from that death but I don't even give a shit, that was amazing
>>171290Never understood the no greenbeard players. People have to start somewhere and sometimes they're better than 100+ players that have gotten too complicit. And if they aren't that great carrying and teaching them good habits can still be fun.
>>171286I had a driller meltdown at me because I didn't leave a gold deposit that was almost done the second mission control announced an incoming wave, he sperged again when I ran to the tunnel and left him to fend off the 5 mactera to check the other side, sperged for a third time when I used the BRT to shoot their weakpoints instead of AoEing the fuck out of everybody with my autocannon, and he probably sperged again after I kicked him right before pushing the button to call the drop pod when we finished up
>>171296>Join game>Some plat 2 gunner host>Couple other chill dudes>Gunner keeps talking in VC and pointing out all the shit he thinks people are doing wrong>Find crate>find helmet>do machine event>"Hey anon its common courtesy to ask before pressing the button">Make it back to the drop pod easily>everyone is in but him>throw some c4 out and blow his ass up>mission ends because we're all in>get kicked before orbiter even loadsKek
>>171296I love kicking people trying to be cunts in my game.>been playing since before promotions were a thing>played most of the classes before then, prefer gunner now>classes other than gunner only in bronze/silver promotions as a result>some autist engi joins my game while I'm playing scout>shoots at me for not immediately mining something he pinged and instead lighting and spotting rest of cavern for leeches etc.>tell him not to shoot me and to relax>shoots me again>kick him >other guys in lobby proceed to talk shit about himFeels pretty good
>>171286>>171289yea the few haz 5 missions ive done have been pretty chill just talking shit about molly taking too long and if lootbugs deserve to be genocidedat worst people are dead silent but i haven't had anyone actually talk shit about how badly i play and i know that im far from a flawless driller
>>171296Devilish, might as well post my shitter story too>join a haz 4 mini mule mission for core assignment as driller>silver 2 rank 100+ gunner, bronze 1 scout, no promo engi>almost done with side objs>help out and start prepping for defending black box by drilling around it>gunners off doing god knows what>engi starts the black box>gunner starts sperging out, me and the other 2 lads just start defending>do fine without gunner being in the zone at all>finish first black box without gunner helping at all>still sperging, calling us idiots saying you think I can’t do this mission solo>tell him to chill, we’re fine>shitter gunner says tell him to chill one more time>scout chimes in, types chill lol>i respond with a hearty lmfao>gunner kicks scout>some reason doesn’t kick me>engi is completely silent and clueless>finish up the mission, dont say anything>last second c4 the gunner and leave him inches away from pod>can’t kick me>laugh in chat after we get back>he calls me an idiot>I type kys faggot and leaveI still got my assignment done, fuck you heroman whatever your numbers are.
>50 solo missions completeI fucking hate this bros, at least I'm half way there
>>171389>actually caring about achievements look at this fag
>>171296People talk shit about Scout players but I find that Driller mains are either the most chill people you can play with or are the most obnoxious stuck up cunts in the entire playerbase, nowhere inbetween.
>>171290This but unironically.I let Noobs join my haz5 games as they please and we still literally never lose even if they suck absolute dick.Skills like iron will are so overpowered that you can fuck up like 10 different ways and still easily win the mission.
>>171447reminds me of a plat 3 scout that said he was gonna kick the driller if he kept ignoring bugs and the driller just responded "i'm kiting lol"
single turret or gemini?
>>171478Use single turret at first.Make the switch to Gemini once you get confident in using it, double Gemini with defender system shreds but is hard to use effectively.
>get the HP buff beer>EDD was easy as shit
What's a good engi build for EDD?I'm always the dedicated engi when I run them with friends
>>171534just play good
>>171290"Yes I enjoy having retarded Eastern Europeans on my team in Haz5 who don't cooperate or even fucking talk in the slightest"Nah fuck that shit, if you're not Silver 2 minimum you're getting booted out of my game before you even touch down in the pod. I'm not losing my nigga Bosco for some Bronze 1 Scout who literally never uses his Flare Gun.
>>171478use MK2 for gamemodes where you need to keep constantly moving (mining, egghunt, elimination etc)use gemini for defensive gamemodes where you're stood around one thing a lot of the time (salvage ops, PE etc)also take the mods which complement them most, namely quick build and extra ammo respectivelygemini turrets will always be the better option because double turrets technically means double damage, but they chew thru ammo like a motherfucker and they're unwieldy to set up in a firefightMK2 is fine, it gets the job done as a sentry if it's killing trash like swarmers and naedocytesalso, armor breaking on the turrets is pretty underrated if they decide to target shit like praetorians - if theyre gonna waste their ammo, may as well have it be for something
>>171654>he can't carry himselft. shitter
>>171447Iron Will is good?
>>171654>if you're not Silver 2 minimum you're getting booted out of my gameanyone who has a dwarf at bronze 1 should be able to do haz 5. if you haven't learned the game at that point you're retarded
>>171720it's good if the entire team gets downed to get a last second revive
>>171720If you gain health during the invuln period, you don't go back down.
>>171720clutch revives and you can essentially self revive if you melee kill an enemy with the vampire perk. it's saved me countless times in pubs when everyone goes down and is also for convenience if you happen to get downed in a really bad place.
>>171726>>171725>>171729That sounds fucking clean, I sorta put it off to the side after trying it when I first started playing.
>>171720its always a good idea to have at least 1 person take iron will in any mission since 12 seconds can be more than enough to save a gamei personally take hover boots since im a shitter that dies to fall damage than glyphids though
>>171534Return to sender Breach Cutter, everything else is filler. For this weeks I'd recommend max ammo (although I can't remember what your trading for that) for the oil well in a retarded spot.
>>171752Max platform ammo that is, BC needs to be built for most damage out of each shot.
>>171732yeah, it used to be super broken before the perk rework where you could rez yourself as many times as you like compared to now where it's limited to 1 per run.it was funny seeing all the shitters bitch about how useless it was now because people relied on it as a crutch.
>>171774Remember when people said the reworked perk system killed the game?
>>171654I have seen bronze 1 players be infinitely more useful than people with red shield.
>>171775casuals fail to adapt and whine, what else is new
>>171792that's the thing, muh red shield players are either super good veterans or just fags who grinded out double xp missions while getting carried.
>>171794Yeah I've learned that you really have no idea what you are dealing with until you see your teammates play, just looking at their honor badge doesn't tell you shit aside from how much they use TCF as a crutch.
>>171290>playing with tryhard driller on haz 5>faggot decides that is way better to drill a thousand tunnels to connect the pipework>praetorian wave>the entire team gets shit on because everything is tunnels and theres absolutely no way to fight off the praetorians and opressorsI could've chosen to die after getting downed to fail the whole mission, but I didn't and instead kept on fighting, was that the right choic->host ragequits after we get yet another wave after that oneNothing of value was lost, I guess.
>server browser>find haz4 refinery mission 40 minutes in>surely they're almost done, time to leechthat was a mistake, never seen people die so easily
>>171534Stubby with Max damage/Clean firerate OC and PGL with Fat Boy max ammo.Stubby chews through ammo fast but on DD you have shitloads of nitra anyway and it shreds everything faster than the minigun does.
Why does it cause redditors to seethe so hard?
>>171876does refining scale with time the same way PE does?
>>171713It's not that I can't play the game. Most of the lobbies I drop into are with unpromoted/Bronze shitters who don't know what they're doing, and I carry them with ease. But Haz5 is a different game entirely. If you can't peform, you're out. Simple as. And %99 of people below Silver can't perform. Hell, even most Silvers are bad but they usually listen to you at least. I'm not wasting my time babysitting some Greenbeard who needs to be reminded to use his Support Tools constantly, especially not on the game's highest difficulty. They can go cut their teeth on easier missions.>>171721You would be surprised just how many shitters slip thru the cracks. You can easily get a promotion just by plugging away on Hazard 2. It takes longer, but you will eventually get it. That's why promotions don't reflect actual skill until Silver minimum, because at the very least you should have seen enough to have a vague idea of what you're doing. I still don't trust low Silvers but I'll take them over Bronze babies any day.
>>171876if your refinery mission is taking more than 25 minutes then its not getting completed at all
>>172235I think it's similar but I've never had it go on long enough for endless waves. Though once you finish refining the bugs won't stop till you extract even if you haven't hit the button yet. So make sure you do the side objective before refining.
>>172195Because the game is about MINING! NOT SPEEDRUNNING!
>>172379>Best speedrun class is scoutHmmm
>>172387No driller is. EPC mine the walls, drill shortcuts, actually be able to kill stuff in a decent amount of time. Grapple only helps so much when you need to actually mine shit.
>>172391Oh, so that's why the best EDD speedrunners use... scout
>>172393Alright I'm talking out of my ass, but my first post I still think is how redditors feel about EPC mining.
>>171876>nibblesthecatyooo I know him IRL, he videocalled me after that shit misionpic related as proof
>>168719>>168731I once had the dozer make it to the heartstone, bug out, and turn around making a beeline to the start. Said beeline included flying over gaps mind you. Dozer then proceeded to hover a good 30 feet above the cage it was dropped in and refused to move. So yeah, that mission was a failure
>>172379What does TCF have to do with speedrunning? Different anon, but I've been using it because the implosion is cool.
>>168719>drilldozer bugs out and doesn't stop taking damage>Molly bugs out and won't let me press the button>Molly bugs out and starts flip flopping at the drop pod so she doesn't go inAnd yeah, I've your bug happen before, though it was only with one person in the group.
>haz 5 escort duty, double xp and exploder infestation>on fungus bogs fuckingkillme.wav>goo and poison shrooms fucking everywhere>constantly spamming dash to move at all>literally nobody is guarding the dozer besides me>by the first resupply i have 1 ammo bar left and my teammates all have 3-4>and i'm using the fucking cryo cannon>scout runs 100+ metres away and spam pings nitra >gunner sits on the dozer and actually, genuinely does not shoot anything>engineer starts a fucking machine event while doretta is moving>keep in mind all these guys are promoted>bulk detonator spawns and explodes, one of its globs hits doretta and breaks a segment>right before getting to hearthstone>ragequit
>>172447Faster way to mine shit. Redditors think it ruins the spirit of the game cause you're "speedrunning" doing shit.
>>172461Good call, you were just gonna lose at rocks when gunner likely wouldn't do his job.
>>172508who the fuck cares what the redditfags likeif i have a mod that lets me make scouts feel even more worthless than they already are you better know im grabbing that shit
Just found out the engineer's grenade launcher does just enough environmental damage to destroy the laser spikes in escort dutyFeels good to destroy the spikes before a point of damage is done to doretta and cuck the driller for once
>>172195Because it makes every other movement utility item pointless.Driller Power drills already makes every other class utility worthless for getting around, TCF makes every other utility worthless for mining.See >>148629
>>172542As a bonus spikes can't spawn there again either. Gunner's autocannon and revolver can also shoot off the tips.
>>172558Each class is better at different shitDriller is good at making holes and AOEGunner is good at sustained single target damage, long range aoe, and crossing large gapsEngineer is good at directing enemies in open spaces and setting up traps and killzones, very good at climbing up walls tooScout has the best burst damage, has invaluable lights and is the best class for staying alive or reviving (ironically scouts die a lot because theyre shitter bait)What I'm saying is a team of 1 of each class is going to do better than a team of 4 drillers, so why complain?
>>172567Your argument has absolutely nothing to do with my post, my post is about TCF and movement utility.All your shit about combat mechanics isn't even relevant.
>>172542the minigun does too. so does the autocannon but it's less accurate, so its harder to pull offscout can also grapple to them and power attack the upper parts where you only need one strike to break them, and he's fast as a result tooironically it's the job that driller is supposed to be good at, but every class does it just as well if not better
>>172195because it requires skill in a game thats otherwise p easy and it grants huge advantages over others when masteredobviously redditors will seethe over it because that's the winning formula to make redditors madsubata is still better tho 8)
>be newfag doing newfag missions with other newfags on hazard 3>some guy 20 levels above us joins, gets shitty when things are going slow and ragequits>this happened more than once
>>172639Anybody that high level still joining Haz 3 is going to be a massive shitter. Just join Haz 4 and then 5 after you get good at 4.
>>172671haz 3 is good for finishing assignments quickly while getting paid slightly more than just 2 gum wrappers and an uncleaned beer mug
>>172672>doing haz3 just to grind assignments more easilyGrind monkeys are the worst at the game, good job exposing yourself.
>>172674im not going to waste 4 haz5 missions worth of xp because i need to promote my dwarf you retard
>>172676You know you don't have to play the dwarf the promotion assignment is for right? Also your still showing your grind monkey mentality.
>promote scout>all this new stuff>but I only get driller cores>start using driller>so much fun>but so much darknessI like this game bros
>>172677i only enjoy playing driller so im not going to drag my fucking level 4 engineer into a haz5 to drag my team downand i don't get why your obsessed that people want to get rewarded for playing the game
flamethrower or icethrower?

>>172690thank you anon. most of the people i've encountered are very capable, which seems weird acording to this thread
>>172698most people become competent at around rank 15-30a few just have unreasonably high standards and expect nothing but karl incarnates to enter their missions
>>172611Good, Driller already is better at literally everything else.
>>172611>>172736if you're driller you can jump, look up and drill and it destroys most of the pillar but keeps the base, stopping more from spawning as well
>>172690>you can trust that your team will actually hit your frozen targetsThe only reason I never use it. And flamethrower is fine in Haz 5 though I get that cryo might be useful to slow waves down but without reliable teammates flame wins every time.
>>172854the trick to dealing with that is using the laser pointer to make sure everyone knows to aim for the target and prioritize freezing large enemies that someone is already attackingalso the real use for cryo isnt the slow but the freeze since turning the enemy into one massive 300% weak point which lets you to kill shit like praetorians or oppressors with 1-2 seconds of focused firefire is still great for haz5 but it really suffers from the beefier bugs while cryo with a bit of teamwork can turn your team into a killing machine that rivals karl
Is Karl a god or a super good dorf?
>>172887karl gave his life for rock and stoneprobably had iron will and field medic equipped but his team left him behind after he revived them all
>>172887we just dont know much about karl except he was a gigachadi'd like to imagine that he became famous for beating haz5-6 missions with only a pickaxe and a few canteens filled with skull crusher ale
>>172891Karl can bench press bulk detonators, and mines solid rock with his teeth.
>join a solo scout on refinery as engineer>start building pipe towards one pumpjack>he breaks it, and starts going in an unnecessarily convoluted direction>then, rather than ask me for a platform to build up a wall, starts digging by hand through>I place a platform on the wall, build a pipe on it>he breaks it again, kills me, and then kicks mePeople need to stop being so fucking defensive of their pipes.

>>173178Does minerals from EPC and C4 go to the driller's total?
>>172887The latter. He's no deity, but a comrade who was lost within Hoxxes.
>>173202i dont think so but as long as it isnt going to the scouts total its fine
>>172887it's literally just a reference to Karl Franz from Warhammer fantasywhich is kind of stupid because he's the emperor of the human empire
>>173237i thought karl was just some arbitrary shit they made for the dwarves to say like rock and stone
>>173244>>173260Suspicious how Karl is spelled the same and citizens and soldiers of the empire are known for yelling "for Karl" or "for the emperor"
>>173286So the source is your ass.
>>173297YesBut it's karl Franz
I feel like they've bumped up the gunk seed generation
>>173322Yeah they changed how many spawn a few hotfixes ago.
has anyone elses EDD stage 2 been glitchy as fuck?doretta has gone all the way back to spawn and fucked my dives twice nowi just want my fucking weapon overclock and get this week over with
>>173401Had the mule get stuck in the same spot all 3 times I played it.It's not a big deal if you notice early since you can call next to it to unstick it but if you don't notice for awhile it can fuck you hard.
>>173401That's weird as fuck, I only had to do it once but the pathing worked just fine.
>>173461checking reddit apparently it happens if you drill ahead which is retarded
>>173479I seem to recall something in the latest patch notes about dozer pathing getting fucked up by drilling ahead. Guess they didn't actually fix it.
>>173481the worst part is that we were only a room away from the heartstone before doretta shit herselfwe had over 400 nitra ready and decent firepower in the second try so we should've had that stupid overclock in the bag
is this game any fun if you don't have people to play with?
>>173522It's fun with randoms, much less fun by yourself
>>173524hmm okay, thanks anon!
>>173147I dont like u
How the fuck do you solo the rock phase of the dozer defense as Driller?I just tried the EDD and couldn't destroy rocks quickly enough with cryo or the gun.
I want ot have sex with Dorettas head
>>173561TCF can take out multiple close together, axes also fuck up rocks
>>173481>>173479Why do they even bother giving her a pathfinder and whatnot? Just drill straight ahead lmao
Is the Pheromone Canister better than the IFG?
Are they ever going to implement a system to get more than just 3 fucking blank cores a week? I know it has been said countless times, but seriously that shit is so stupid.
>>173675Not really, but ice nade shits on them both
>>173704I wish they could give a blank core every time you promote a dwarf
>>173704You say this now, but once you've crafted all the overclocks those get replaced with blank cores and then you will literally never run out of them.
>>173715You're right, but it sucks at this point in my game. I know that feeling finding lost gear/crates, i get nothing out of them.
I'd just like to take a moment to thank the silver driller who carried my unpromoted engineer and the greenbeard gunner and scout in on-site refining todayDon't know if you're in here but if you are thanks bro
>Just had a 4 engineer haz 5 salvage OPHoly shit that was immense amounts of funWe were playing tower defenseSo many mines
>be newfag doing the newfag assignments, set to public for the lulz>people with silver prestige join my haz 3s and expect me to know things
>>172393>EDD speedrunnersCause speedrunning edd is about ignoring mobs and beelining for objectives, only 2 of which actually need mining.
>>173675Used to be best in the game. Haven't tried it since its nerf and I like bullets of mercy which uses IFGs better.
>>173675ifg has and always will be scouts only good throwablecryo nades are a meme and useless against non-flying mobsphero was a haz5 crutch for shitters and now its just objectively worthless
>>174044I was just getting my brother into the game and on his very first haz 3 mission a gold 1 gunner with 300+ player level joined. Best part is, the only time he used his shield was for 2 mactera while we were digging through dirt.
>>174194Gunners not using their shield is the biggest thing that pisses me off in this game.Like fuck its the ONE THING your class has over engineer, just play fucking fat boy engineer if you aren't going to use your shield.
>doretta drills into a single small room with a cliff directly to the back right of her >when she starts up again she fucking spins in place and takes off into the air and starts drilling after gets on top of the cliff The bitch flew I swear on my life
>>174216She's got a big old jet booster on the underside that activates when she's not grounded.
>>174219It was fun to slowly ride through the sky with my friend.
>>174209To be fair to him, the mission was easy as fuck and we only had one swarm that he joined in the middle of, he definitely could have used it there but the fact that he used it when it did was just baffling.
Why do people even use fatboy?it's damage is pretty underwhelming considering the spectacleI'd rather take hyper propellant anyday, especially since the buff
>>174411because the idea of bringing a portable nuke system to fight alien bugs is cool as fuck
>>174411>he doesn't like making a lingering area of denial to soften up wavesbet you main scout and bitch when you have to grapple through it
>>174666I like the idea of fat boy but I hate the people who use it. I once had an engi almost wipe the team cause he used it in a small tunnel like it was a non overclocked launcher.
>>174667sounds like you had a shitter then. but I sometimes friendly fire people by accident too so I like to take the friendly perk when I run it
>Fatboy? I prefer using RJ250 and rocket jumping through the caves of Hoxxes
>>174673I enjoy both
>>174672Yeah I did a few runs with him too and he was constantly using it too close to the group. Kinda soured my view on it cause it was the first time I've seen it but people who are careful do use it okay.
>>174685i remember this one haz 5 mining expedition when this one retarded engi tried to nuke a group of glyphids that were chasing us while we were leaving but he undershot and sent us all into the med bay 20 m from the finishing linethe gunner and scout went off on the engi on vc until he left
>>174411The AOE radiation Is the main part of it.It's powerful enough to kill any grunts walking through it while it's still up.
>scouts not using flares>engie not giving platforms>gunner not using shieldwhats the worst?
>>174802Scout>Gunner>EngiePlatforms are whatever and you can live without them.Shield is too overpowered not to use.Scouts literal only purpose is flares, so if they can't even do that then you might as well have no player.
>>174820Neither, get some proper goggles.
>>174411Fat Boy and Hyper Propellant are good for different things. HP will strip the armor off a dread in one shot, so I usually take it on elim missions, but on missions like PE or eggs where there are almost guaranteed big crowds, Fat Boy reigns supreme.
Just got RJ250, does it affect teammates and how do I use it effectively to piss off scouts?
>>174867YesBlast them off of platformsI think more explosion radius means more distance but don't quote me on that
>>174820Right for sure
>>175148Only two of mine I'm a fan of. Hard to make driller look good and I can't think of anything for scout other than the unoriginal cowboy scout.
>>175190ya its kinda hard to go for creative ideas. i tried to make a russkie scout and a robo bug hunter engie.
>>175234>>175242Those are some good ideas for scouts, but now I can't steal them.
>>175255I'm curious what the builds are on these different dwarves.
Newish at this game, been playing with randos and so far I've learned >Don't trust people with silver stars>Most gunners are selfish >Engies are always MVP >Don't trust drillers when they want to drill to the escape podIs this accurate?
>>175452>>Don't trust drillers when they want to drill to the escape podyou got a story for this? It's pretty hard to fuck this up.
>>175453Every time I've followed a driller home they lead us to our doom. Never seen it go well. In fact all the few times I've been left was following a driller trying to drill to the escape pod. This last game one fell into a hole to the bottom of the cave. Why are the more stars you have the worse you are at teamwork? Best game I had, a full team of low level randos, they kept buying the heavy alcohol and having us go to high level caves when drunk lol. First time I've had a team that stayed for more than two rounds, excellent communication and teamwork.
>>175371I mostly use 1/2/2/2 (on the image), each one has different weapons assigned in case I need to switch up when joining a mission.The 1st scout has 2/2/2/1/3 with Bullets of Mercy OC, along with the shotgun with 1/1/2/3/1 and Stuffed Shells OCThe 2nd driller is a turbo-freeze build with 3/2/1/3/2 with perfectly tuned cooler OC, with the plasma gun on 3/3/1/2/2 and heat pipe OC for maximum TCF uptime, though I'm been thinking about switching TCF for the heat upgrade so I can do temperature shocks on my own.2nd engie has 1/1/3/1/2, with Magnetic Pellets OC and breach cutter with 1/2/2/1/3 with Lightweight Cases since I'm not a fan of return to sender.2nd gunner has 3/3/2/2/1 with the Big Bertha OC, and a six shooter revolver with 2/1/3/1/1.More people should appreciate the six shooter since it has no downsides other than slightly longer reload time, which is just perfect with Born Ready perk to deal with the small ammo capacity of the Big Bertha OC.
>>175467>>175453>>175452When I play Driller I really wish people didn't stick around waiting for me to drill directly to the drop pod, I personaly prefer to just run for it since it makes it more exciting.>Most gunners are selfishFor some reason 99% of times I've seen a gunner that was a dickhead they used the Lead Storm over the Thunderhead
Curious at hearing peoples reasoning for running Neurotoxin over Carpet Bomber/Splintering ShardsI have tried all three OCs extensively with different setups and Neurotoxin always feels really week comparatively.The fear isn't reliable enough to save you, and CB/SS chews through trash mobs so fast anyway that I don't see why you would waste your time with the fear gimmick, dead bugs don't need to be feared.
>>175488>Three star gunner>Chose gunner even though we've got two >Their internet is slow as fuck holding us up Why are stars such a redflag?
>>175148These are my dworfs. There are many like them, but these ones are mine.
>>175452I never follow drillers to drop pods, because if they fuck it up there's no escape, and it also makes the escape boring as hell. Molly is the only one I can trust to get to the pod (except when she isn't).
>>175560>>175488There are times when doing it is justified.If the cave is going to make you run around spirals for 500 meters just to get to a cave that is only 30 meters through the wall next to you, you can bet your ass I'm just going to drill that shit.
>>174411>absolutely destroys the ammo count>damage is complete overkill for grunts but still not enough to kill specials in 1 shot>area damage radius doesnt match the radioactive cloud>absolutely reviled for team damage, can and will cause team wipes on haz 5>radiation doesnt do shit to enemies, it just breaks allies' shields>"b-but it looks and sounds cool!!!"literally why would you ever bother, just run a clean oc or use hyper propellantfag boy is such a meme overclock, especially in the hands of greenbeard shitters who just nuke their own teammates repeatedly
>>175148if you use the edgy power armor dlc youre a bitch
>elite deep dive>stage two>scout doesnt put up any flares>data link goes horribly because we get no cover and driller doesnt make space>before setting up fuel cells ask for engie to put up cover>"no bro it will spawn a detonator">"ok">this time driller has made an attempt at making the area wider>they get downed multiple times, multiple revivals>i'm the only one to make it to the drop pod>third stage>get baited by a mineral hoarder, put up a zipline down the cave>get downed>"just 1/4 downed, it's fine, at worst they can just drill to me directly">engie doesnt put up any turrets>driller falls off and dies>engie and scout are at the entrance, overwhelmed because of no turrets, engie gets downed>scout instead of helping him takes my zipline>"what the fuck are you doing">zips into the spitballer cave>he just stands around>doesnt shoot anything>instead of going for me or driller just stands still>gets next to one of the spitballers>die>entire +1 hour mission failed
>>151477GTFO has a bit of that "hold out!" feeling to it, although it's a lot slower and death can happen quickly so it's not as outwardly fun as DRG. Still worth checking out, especially if you have some friends who also play it
>>175452>Don't trust people with silver starsDamn, I have 3 silver stars on all my dwarfsGotta get em to gold I guess
>>175560>people are fucking up holding w+m1 towards an icon in a straight lineliterally how?
>>175452>>Don't trust people with silver starsIts better than bronze I guess>>Most gunners are selfishsame with scouts>>Engies are always MVPbreach cutter OP>>Don't trust drillers when they want to drill to the escape podonly if their pathing is retarded, if a short tunnel can bring you half way across the map, do it. if they're trying to do an 80 meter straight line, ignore them
>just unlocked return to sendershould I take an ammo upgrade now since I'm basically going to be attacking twice with one shot? or I do I keep the damage
>>175746Build it for damage
>>175452>Yeah, dont trust your driller bro to get you there when Molly walks up a vertical cliff to the podShitter confirmes
>>171290based as fuck
How do you mine with the plasma gun? Is it an overclock?
>>175824it's the final upgrade, thin containment field
>>175781nothing beats the satisfaction of seeing half of the team get assfucked trying to follow molly while me and another dwarf take the express tripignore my tunnels i ignore your life
>>175833nothing beats the satisfaction of seeing half of the team get assfucked trying to follow the driller while me and another dwarf take the normal tripignore my mule i ignore your life
>>172344haz5 isn't hard, i dunno the fuck you talking about. i'm in this game since build 8, played haz4 exclusively with friends, and it gets easier and easier with each update because of gay ass perks, overclocks, upgrades and zero mechanical changes overall so the same gets very repetitive and predictable. now my friends quit and i run haz5 with randos all the time and at least 1 bronze is usually enough for me. i can carry 2 of these shitters with ease as gunner/engie though i'm level 60 myself.
>haz 4 double xp refining mission>two detonators>seven oppressors>dozens of praetorians>korlok weed spread across three bullshit little ice crevice stories next to the refinery>three pods worth of nitrite total>only real hitch was the gunner getting lost on the way to the pod
>obvious kid unpromoted driller joins my escort duty>takes one of the canisters at refuel and does such a shit job we get two swarms and goes down multiple times>doesn't touch his drills once, doesn't use c4 except during one dig and to get right of one of the posts that surround the hearthstone at the beginning>after me asking when he didn't use his drills he just hits the button when the other two are nowhere nearI don't kick often, but that kick felt good, he would have been deadweight during the fight anyway
>>176125>using the driller but not using his drillwhy the fuck would someone even do thisthe main reason you play driller is for the fucking drill and main weaponwithout the drills and c4 hes basically a shittier gunner
>>176137I dunno man it was sandblasted and I saw him dig a tunnel up a ledge that couldn't be jumped with his pick.
>>175452>newishIt's not necessarily those things you posted, but the likely fact that you're playing on low haz levels. Retards and autists are omnipresent in 1-3 haz, super common in 4, and strangely enough for the most part disappear in haz 5.What is it about DRG that makes it the inverse of most coop games? Where shitters and spergs crop up in the lower difficulties as opposed to the highest difficulties?
>>176166>Where shitters and spergs crop up in the lower difficulties as opposed to the highest difficulties?>InverseI don't know m8, between my experiences in DRG & VT I'm inclined to believe that's the norm.
>>175587Fat Boy is the best OC when actually used correctly for killing bugs and not your teammates.The rad damage is powerful enough to kill grunts on it's own even on haz5 4xPeople who fire it ontop of themselves are faggots though.
Is it common for people to refuse to mine gold? In my last game I had an engineer refuse to put platforms for a gold deposit literally right in front of him, and the scout didn't seem to know he could mine materials no matter what, I kept having to shoot ziplines and fat scout it to get the deposits. Then again, this same scout also only shot like 2 flares the whole mission, so this could just be a retard thing
>>176204Once you are like blue level 100 you have so many credits that gold is basically worthless.I still mine it anyway for the xp.
>>175904how does one get *ass fucked" when following the driller? both the driller and the person following him have to be brain dead to fuck it up
>>151477WWZ has a horde survival mode that is pretty decent with friends
WE'RE RICH LADS!

Is Improved blast wave on the boomstick worth it?I never see anyone use it over super blowtrhough
>>176406its good if you are taking boomstick with high ammo for getting swarmers and shit off you
>>176406Super blowthrough looks good on paper but is rarely useful in practice on the shotgun.
>>176170I was down in magma core and the gunner had just about cleared the bugs around me and the tard engi though it'd be a good idea to shoot a fat boy right on top of my body. I swear the OC is a tard magnet.
How do I make the plasma charger good at mining while not being useless for combat?I'm used to having my gun as a backup and to shatter frozen enemies but this shit overloads way too quickly
>>175957Once again it's not an inability to play with low ranks on Haz 5, but a refusal. I don't give a shit that you've been playing since the alpha, well done for being more patient than me I guess?If you enjoy babysitting day-one-installs then good for you but I'd rather get Scouts who don't need reminding to use their Flare Guns every two minutes.
>>176525you really just have to choose between mining or combat since the ammo supply for the gun is too dogshit to do bothi would just go pure mining and relying on your team and axes to kill anything you freeze instead of the plasma gunhere's my setup, i'm using the magnetic cooling unit OC since i'm still shit at tcf but you should probably switch it for the heat pipe OC for optimal scout cucking
>>176525>>176603You need the +chg speed mod in tier 3 to properly use charged shots in combat. Use heatpipe OC for more ammo and just git gud at timing the TCF blast.
>usual lads for deep diving with are busy or getting burnt out on DRG>elite deep dive pugs are complete retards
>>176710How bad are pub EDDs? Most regular ones I've done were chill.
>>176732Mixed bag. I did this week's with two randoms and it was easy. I was the only one who didn't go down, though.
>>176732Did both DD with the same pugs just fine this week.We had 2 gunners (1 toxin AC and 1 minigun), scout and engi
>>176895Sounds fun. Which class were you?
>>176897Seems like it could work well with the minigun. Did a lack of driller matter for either of the dives? I haven't done them yet.
>>176898Anything goes in the normal Deep dive but the EDD this week starts with an escort followed by a mule recovery+pod defense in a huge room so being able the shit out shields and kill things from a long range helps a ton.
man I hate the M1000
>everyone online shits on bunker strat>every time I tried it the mission was a complete successare people just too retarded to funnel all the enemies into one area and make escape tunnels?
When should I be using carpet bomber over neurotoxin AC?
>>177012literally never use neurotoxin over carpet bomber
>>176977no, people avoid it because it removes all challenge from the game and as a result removes all the fun beyond watching numbers go up
>>176977%99 of bunkerfags can't build them properly, turning them into complete deathtraps, and the few who do just make them so well that all you do is hold M1 down a tunnel until you win
>>177012honestly toxin can be a better CB since it was buffed, but it definitely all depends on your build and gamemodethere are a few instances where CB is better, if you're expecting more resistance but the only gamemode i always take CB on is salvage ops, you go up against so much shit you need the improved AOE to deal with it allhowever a toxin autocannon with the fear mod is incredibly powerful, it's hard to give up that much utility in most cases
>>176977People shit on it because it turns an already pretty easy game into a joke.
>>177012Neurotoxin is the most overrated OC in the entire game, just use CB or the clean one they are both better.Dead bugs don't need to be feared.There is literally no scenario where Neurotoxin is better.
>>177077Ammo wise it seems better.I see bug spawning on the ceiling I just paint the pack and watch them die before they reach the drilldozer.
>>177085Neurotoxin sucks because the poison only applies about 1/3rd of the time.In 3 shots a CB will kill a grunt.
for carpet bomber do you just build it for super AOE or max out damage?
>>176977The Bunker works, a little too well desu, like the other anons pointed out it makes dealing with swarms too easy. In the event of a Bulk Det or a Oppressor that isn't instantly frozen and killed, the Driller should be able to quickly dig the team out. But that, of course, requires the driller to not be retarded.

>>177147You know your team is doomed to fail if they need voice chat
>>177147>in-game voice sucksQuality is good enough to understand, lazy bastard probably just don't want to hold Z for minor call outs. And even then it's only needed if you need to say something urgent that you don't have time to type out.

>>177243In-game voice only seems to work 50% of the time for me. Plenty of people in pub games claim they can't hear my mic at all. I guess Ghost Ship won't get around to fixing anything since Discord is already a thing and works better more of the time.
>>177584mine used to work all the time until last update, now apparently my mic lights up but nobody hears me
>>177584If my dualshock 4 is plugged in it tries to default to that as if it had a shitty mic plugged into it, so I have to just un plug it when I play this.

He didn't play all that badly since he didn't die and was lighting up caves but still. And of course by the end of it I had most kills and most minerals mined on fucking gunner. It's not the first time I see this shit either, public lobbies always seem to be trying to rush objectives as quick as they can, ignoring everything else for the sake of finishing as fast as possible. Am I the weird one trying to actually mine and explore the caves?
>>177756I don't know how anyone can reach silver and still be that retarded
>>177756Scout should have just played by himself jeez. But to answer your question when it comes to DDs I'd rather not spend more time than I need since they're already about an hour investment to complete possibly more if one of the missions is bullshit. I still try to get gold and most of the nitra but since rewards are only for the objectives there's no real reward to doing more than what is needed other than gold payouts.
