I think it's definitely higher quality and depth, but I'm going to be honest and say the level terrain of the old maps bring me equal enjoyment. I don't know every angle and each location of the new map, but it's almost overwhelming the angles you can shoot from and get shot from.

Is there any benefit to prestiging?
>>
>>363872
you get to play against tryhards
>>
>>363872
Skins and marginally faster cash grind when you inevitably reach the conclusion prestiging is a massive waste of time. Also it's something else you can blame the game for when you suck despite the devs stating that prestige has no effect on matchmaking, besides the same effect you get when you first hit prestige 0 bloodline rank 100. There's no way to escape the "prestige matchmaking".
>>
>>363872
You get a legendary skin for free and it just gives you something to work towards.
Some people find it boring once they have unlocked everything and there is nothing else to work towards.
Crytek is looking to improve prestiging, but there's nothing wrong with it inherently.
Don't listen to the redditposters, they don't even know how crossbows work.

I don't know. The shotgun is nice if you have slugs, but with its buckshot's effective range, I had more luck with a knife. And the pistol itself has 9 shots which is nice, but I always preferred the officer's fire rate or the pax's damage

Do you get any credit for the kills you get after extracting? If I set a bunch of traps while playing and it kills people after I extract, do I get anything for it?
>>
>>363872
I did notice one thing, when I was prestige 0 I never got any prestiged teammates while my enemies could easily by p100. So only one prestige might be worth it. This might've been changed though after the matchmaking revamp.

I just matched with a prestige 11. I'm level 100 0 prestige. I think high level prestige people already have groups thats why they are so rare.

Yes. Why do you think its the top trials unlock skin?
Base shotgun > melee, treat it like a cav saber and blast in close range
Duel wield for pocket caldwell rival
Slug shots range is 15m, lay anyone out one tap and they never expect it when you've been using a rifle
9 ammo pistol, great for fanning; though i miraculously always fail with fanning and far prefer the dual weild

compact springfield/mosin and dual lemats is one of my favorite loadouts covering all ranges reliably

Being rank 0-99 with no prestige puts you in a certain matchmaking bracket. Hitting rank 100 puts you with the normal mmr calculation even if you don’t prestige.
>>
>>363817
I love the LeMat's visual design but i fucking hate it's ADS.
The Shotgun spread is highly ridiculous and buying Slugs on it is kinda an overkill.
It's an expensive toy, but you can have tonns of fun if you go FMJ+Slugs and it's a strong Fanning candidate too.

Not necessarily, it's a good indicator of skill but at the same it can vary largely on playstyle. If you play long ammo, just hold angles and never push then you'll naturally have a higher k/d. I can outaim most people and regularly hit crazy shots but tend to play ultra aggresively so I naturally my k/d doesn't really reflect that because I'll inevitably die to people holding corners. It's still 2.5 or 2.6 but I could probably push 4 or 5 if I started a new account and played the boring waiting game.

tldr; if you play the game like a scared little bitch then your k/d will be inflated simply because you won't die as much. For the most part that guy is right though, the amount of seeth that k/d generates among shitters is funny.
>>
>>365241
>Pretty sure it depends sometimes on the player count per match.
It's totally random. I've gotten into actual empty matches before as a solo with 2 bosses and had my run of the place. Of course, there's no way to be 100% certain until the next patch with the new end-match screen, but if I can run around shooting every single AI banishing bosses uncontested and leaving their bounties on the ground for 10 minutes while I find and fight the other boss, I'm pretty sure I'm alone.

>>365453
My friend has double my KD and he has a fucking spaghetti meltdown anytime enemy hunters come within 30 meters. Plus KD is extremely easy to pad; just die to AI/dynamite/falling/disconnect any time you're at risk and camp clues/bodies/bounties with a spitzer mosin sniper from 150+ meters. It's a near worthless metric because this isn't Hunt: Team Deathmatch. Too many tactics and playstyles put you at high risk, but you'd be a fag to disregard them out of fear of losing epeen.
>>
>>365459
>It's a near worthless metric because this isn't Hunt: Team Deathmatch
Once you go beyond a certain point yes, but at the same time if you have a sub 1 k/d then there's literally no other explanation than you being bad at the game. K/D farmers aside, the average player seems to be around 1.2-1.5 k/d, higher tier players will be anywhere from 1.8-2.5 and once you go beyond that then you're either looking at the very rare god-tier player or just some meta slaving k/d farmer. These stats are coming from 1000+ hours of playing with nothing but randoms.

Tactics are more important in this game than the average FPS, but when it boils down to it you can outplay someone yet still lose the fight because his aim is better than yours.

k/d probably is a reasonable indicator of skill, but i dont want any aspect of the game changed to value that because it would impact the way people play. wipe a team fighting over a clue but lost a bar and banishing already started? naaah gotta consider my k/d lets just extract. incentive to play passively would be lame.

I've been thinking of trying Hunt out. So how little fun will I have if I clocked 1500+ hours sucking at Tarkov and if I play solo because I have no friends?
>>
>>365831
Hunt is more casual than Tarkov, though that isn't saying much. The best gear isn't hard to come by, but you're always on an even playing field. Some of the cheapest guns can actually be the strongest in their categories. Map knowledge is vital, but luckily for you the new map's coming soon and so nobody will know what they're doing for a while. Solo is a self-imposed challenge, since you're always up against duos or trios and reviving is a key mechanic. But it can be a pretty fun playstyle once you get comfortable.

>>365901
what job you work thats so terrible?
>>
>>365831
Hunt is much more about skill than gear and tacticool autism. There's no looting in-game (outside of quickplay but no one plays that) and you buy all of the guns/equipment are always available to buy after you unlock them. It retains that slow, tactical gameplay of Tarkov but everyone's on pretty much a level playing field regardless of the whether they're using 20 dollar guns or 1000 dollar guns.

Also, unlike Tarkov, Hunt has a functional matchmaking system and is intended to be played in teams so there really isn't any reason to play solo unless you're a masochist.

Unfortunately, Tarkov seemed a whole lot about skill. That or I never reached the level of basic skill to where gear would begin to drastically improve my performance.
I'm the type of player who freaks out when someone shows up, and even when I had the drop on someone and/or had a shot at someone from behind, I'd fuck it up. You know the deal where you miss, overcorrect and miss, repeat until the other guy kills you?
But it's not like I got much practice in anyway since the majority of my in-game time was playing inventory Tetris.
I even changed my setup a lot: installed a keyboard tray to compensate for my desk being too high, got a sturdier chair, upgraded my motherboard, RAM, and got a 144hz curved monitor. In the end, it all gets bottlenecked by hand-eye coordination.
Regarding that, I tried out Aim Labs for a bit, but that shit made my arm cramp up, and I never got above "Significantly lower than average" in those trials.
I eventually took what was supposed to be a month break from the game after I developed involuntary muscle spasms, but I figured I might as well ditch the game for good.

Hunt actually lowers your matches average mmr if you're playing solo. So it's not that bad as you just go up against potatoes.

Thing 3 is there more cheaters in the test server? Had a few suspicious things but could be lag either end (someone standing in a big dynamite bundle and not dying. He killed me and was a lvl0 basic hunter so no perks)
Few headshots that haven't killed. 200m through walls headshots
Or Does the game just hate me just now?

Test server has the updated matchmaking display, but zero matchmaking at all. The population's too small, so it's disabled. There's nothing stopping a 1* from going up against a team of 3 6*s.
>Thing 3 is there more cheaters in the test server?
The new patch is supposed to have a more robust anti-cheat system, it's the reason they made you redownload the entire game. But the test server seemed to have a lot more server issues to me.

That's it. Kills don't technically pay anything, though looting bodies with full tools and consumables gives random cash the same as a cash register. If possible, be sure to always grab the clue before entering the boss room. And if you prestige, sell whatever guns you get from leveling that you aren't going to use. Otherwise just learn to get good with the frugal stuff. You can turn a profit with a lot of good loadouts just by grabbing 3 clues.

dont beat yourself up thems rookie numbers. imo number one factor of fights other than godlike aim is your positioning and map awareness. take note of soundtraps and spawns/greyed out compounds, you can usually predict where players will be after your first clue and soundtraps will solidify that. understanding player movement of the map comes with experience and knowing player tendancies. chances are that most fights youve lost are due to your positioning (e.g out in the open/lack of cover, and in the case of getting pincered by a second team, not paying enough attention to the world around you.) that said theres always situations where you were unlucky and had a bad spawn/clue spawn that put you in a bad position but even then there are steps and precautions you can always take to minimize the chances of getting ambushed. as for the ones you engage, always pick fights where you have the positional advantage when possible, has the enemy seen you have they got the clue is it the boss compound etc you want to fight people when the intel is balanced in your favour. also... region?

>Over the last few months, we have been working on improving many different aspects of Hunt, one of those being a focus on improving our security and internal anti-cheat measures. We have made some changes to the encryption of the .pak files in Hunt, and these important changes are the reason why a full client download is required for everyone. We feel 1.6 is the best time to do this as the new map also requires a large download (around 12GB), so this will allow us to do perform our security updates with as little impact as possible, as well as ensuring multiple large downloads will not be required in a short period of time. The total download will be around ~30GB.
The total game size is still the same.

Sort of. It lets you get into gunfights quickly wish a wide variety of weapons at no cost to you, so you can practice that at least. But you won't learn how to work with and against teams.
>random people sneaking up on me
So you're hanging out at a compound and then suddenly someone's there and kills you? It often means you made too much noise and attracted attention. If they were rushing you, you ought to be able to hear them coming if you're not making much noise yourself.
>>
>>368078
Basically you'll get better gunfight experience but when it comes to pushing compounds, or intercepting bounties, you wont be getting that experience. Plus whoever activates the Wellspring just hides in a building with a shotgun and you have to get lucky to kill them.

It's more like walking about and then just being bootyblasted by some dude with a rifle a small distance away. I never really know the optimal movement speed, if I should be sprinting or walking normally so I'm not sure if its my audio cues or i'm just getting unlucky. I don't know how to predict players yet so keeping track of enemy locations is hard, especially since my GPU gets real damn loud and annoys me when I try and focus my hearing. That and my aim is terrible. I think I have the sensitivity too high on everything, I know pro players in other hardcore FPS keep their ADS aiming speed pretty low to make microadjustments so perhaps I should do that. I got in an engagement with a guy where we returned fire six or seven times before I lost. He didn't move from his camping spot while I bounced around like a rabbit and I still lost because I couldn't headshot him in time to end the fight even though I hit him multiple times. Any tips on how to meaningfully improve aim, keep track of player locations and manage intel properly?

It’s mostly just experience and getting used to a weapons handling. Try and find a weapon that you want to git gud with and just use it constantly. This will help you learn the pros and cons of certain weapon types as well as make you comfortable with at least 1 weapon.
For strategy, the general advice I can give is:
1. If you think you are not alone in a compound, stick to walking at best as running is too loud and crouching across an open area is asking to be headshot.
2. If you are in a gunfight where you know where the enemy is, change location after every couple of shots to keep the enemy guessing.
3. Dynamite is cheap. If you are being camped out, chuck dynamite at his location to get him to move and give yourself some breathing room. Fire bombs also work well.

Tarkov is a lot more demanding, and you can get thousands of hours out of it, but personally I think it can have too much of what feels like busywork and not enough of enjoying the game. Hunt gets straight to the point. It's better balanced and everyone goes into each match on a relatively equal level. There's a steep learning curve but I don't think there's such a thing as being too late to join. Especially with the new map and event bringing in lots of new players. Tarkov is also a lot more expensive while Hunt is frequently 20 bucks, and all the DLC is cosmetic.

if you mean "can i still learn the ropes and without getting btfo'd" then yes, you can absolutely get into the game and have fun.
Unfortunately if you try to look up any gameplay video on YouTube, you'll probably be watching some high MMR pro player and that won't exactly be reflective of how your games.
Closest to what your matches would look like, can be probably seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpJRFS6AMtI (disregard the german chatter).

Both games are going to involve dozens of hours of getting stomped until you get good. Tarkov will probably take longer to get into and be more brutal to a new player, and gear matters more in general there.
Hunt will rely more on your skill and ears, pick which one sounds more appealing to you.

>if someone else gets wellspring there's literally no problem killing them
>if you are wellspring use your fucking ears and pick a place to fight with lots of cover and lots of escape routes

Biggest mistakes I see in quickplay are people turtling too hard, people using darksight 100,000 times to confirm where the wellspring is (I often yell "YES I'M STILL HERE" in voip when I hear them spam DS) and of course just poor decision making- pick a good entry when you clear, be careful of traps..

If you're bad at quickplay tho you are probably shit at 1v1's in general so it's a good practice ground.

No? Statistically it will overwhelmingly indicate who is better in a general sense but Hunt is complicated enough that a good player might not be getting all the kills themselves but still be largely responsible for winning.

Hunt is a hard game to fully learn and understand solo and you'd be missing out if you never played with teams. That said there's a dedicated no-risk solo mode called quickplay which is a sort of king of the hill variant. You get to keep your hunter and any weapons/gear you found if you're the only survivor so it's sort of like scav runs. Almost.

Solo in the main bounty hunt mode is super rewarding but obviously kind of hard, especially with revives. Definitely a ton of fun to solo once you get good tho.

How good are you at online FPS's? Reaction time, hand-eye coordination, cognition, etc. If you're anything below the 75th percentile of FPS players, Tarkov will chew you up, spit you out, and you'll play it for thousands of hours but never see any demonstrable improvement.

>>368745
Part of the issue with this idea of the game is that it fails to take one thing into consideration- that being, guns in this game are slow as shit. Reloading takes ages, chambering and levering take ages, hell even readying iron sights takes a long time. The people you were watching likely knew that people were going to be around due to audio cues in the environment and thus have their sightlines trained to snap to any hunters they see. Melee being viable is also because guns are slow. If you see someone try and get in a firefight with you but they have out a slow-firing primary, you can punish it by running forward and stabbing them. This works more than you'd think (since guns are as said pretty slow and damage from most guns are low enough to tank at least one shot from unless you hit the head).

As for aiming, yeah most people keep it really low. Microadjusting for headshots is super important. I keep my normal aim at around 0.8 on my mouse, which allows me to turn 180 degrees with a full mouse swipe, and 0.5 to 0.3 for various different aiming types.

What's wrong with the knife?
>>
>>369039
Not the anon you're asking but nothing is wrong with the knife but it does require you to use a less efficient method to kill immolators.

Each small melee weapon has its trade offs in terms of what its best against. Knuckles are the 'safe' option since you can use it against anything short of Concertina Armored.
>>
>>369047
If you're not in combat, immolators are easy to kill with the butt of your gun. If you're in combat, immolators are easy to shoot. Meanwhile, if you're not in combat, dogs can still be hard to kill without losing a bar even with a knife, the best melee tool for killing them. If you're in combat, a pack of 4 dogs can be a lot harder to shoot than 1 man on fire, especially if they have helmets. Knife is simply the best tool because a pack of 4 dogs is the most threatening AI you'll come across.
>>
>>369055
based dog anon gets it, when will knucklets learn that their tool is inferior
>>
>>369055
Agreed on dogs but you're glossing over shooting an immolator means announcing your position without a silenced weapon.

I'd rather have a knife because I stink at punching the hounds.
>>
>>369078
Not him but the point is that the only time you'd need to shoot an immolator instead of rifle butting it is if you're already in combat, in which case the enemies already know your position.

Also forgot to talk about matchmaking. My games seem to be a LOT sweatier, I guess that's to be expected from 6 stars. Matchmaking with randos also takes a minute or two, though games feel far more consistent. Perhaps it's a consequence of having a visible mmr system and tryharding to get more stars, but people seem to play much more passively, been running into boss lair shotgun campers non-stop.
>>
>>369261
When they made the changes to MMR visibility, I made it my goal to never hit 6 stars just to avoid teams playing like you mentioned. The 4-5 star range is pretty fun and hectic still.
>>
>>369286
Sweatier matches aren't necessarily a bad thing, at least at 6 stars I know what to expect and play accordingly. Before this patch you could be chilling in a lobby full of retards, killing them without breaking a sweat and then running into some sweatlord streamer who domes you within milliseconds of seeing your head.

After about 1000 hours I felt like you do and picked knife every time. Another 1000 later and I think knuckle knife is way better. Packs of 4 dogs are really not that threatening (nor is any AI) once you get their behavior nailed, the worst scenario is getting jacked by 4 in a totally open field but even then you can pretty easily 2-tap every dog (each hit interrupts their bite too so you shouldn't really get hit more than once). If there's even a single tree you can make them attack only one at a time once you get the knack of it, if there's a fence.. easy.

Meanwhile knucknife can plow barred doors with less stam than a pickup axe, still oneshots hunters, obliterates all AI with supreme stam efficiency AND it's cheaper which means nothing but is still a plus. Normal knife's main advantage is the ability to inflict bleed, a slightly easier oneshot on hunters and it can cut wire in an emergency.

But hey you do you.

Taking a uppercut is usually the way to go if you want more reserve ammo in general. You can take a ammo box which might be a good idea if you wanna just snipe. But if you're actually engaging teams then you're better off just running around looking for ammo boxes. Personally, I think 15 bullets is enough for most engagements. Doubly so if you're not soloing as you can get your teammates to cover you for ammo.

The problem with running a Lebel is when you take a ammo box you'll get less than a Mosin since it's based off your reserve ammo max. So generally, Mosin's kind of better but it's not like you can get a marksman scope on a Mosin. Don't listen to this >>369438 faggot. Run what you want. The Lebel/Mosin argument is just fucking preference and what attachments you want.

Yeah. I’ll get salty at some teammates that I’m watching on death cam if they do something even I know is dumb, but once you realize everything is replaceable and everything is expendable (hunters, gear, etc.) you have a lot more fun in this game.
>>
>>370052
Accept that the game is hard and you need to actively learn how to do some things, and it won't just come with time if you're not a natural.
Go into matches trying to learn instead of trying to win. Do things with purpose and when it doesn't work, think about what was bad about it and apply it to later matches.

it's trash.
it has no potential in one-shotting downed hunters to the chest (100 HP).
its base damage is extremely weak.
terrible for fanning.
horrendous range and ROF.
you'll probably score more kills with the shotgun attachment. at that point, you should just use a crossbow or shotgun.

it should have medium ammo or something.

Be aware that turning animations in this game are instant, couple that with slow bullet travel times and people can literally dodge headshots in the split second that it takes for the bullet to arrive to them. Same for crouching or looking downward (your character actually physically bends forward when you look down).

The tool weapons are still OK at doing damage to the bosses but pickup weapons always gonna be better. Each boss takes more/less damage from certain types so it's worth learning that.

striker/bayonet weapons with a stam shot work wonders, still allows for a versatile loadout without sacraficing your secondary for an axe or something, though the axe is fantastic
>>
>>370484
>its base damage is extremely weak.
it's on par with the nagant in terms of damage and can still two tap. The main issue is your first point and that's only before fall off
>terrible for fanning
besides it's longer reload not really, easy to control within 10m just like the conversion. Gets a little bit harder to control at 20m, I'd say it's an inbetween of conversion vs pax in terms of control at that range
It also has the most bullets in it's cylinder compared to other single actions (save for the obvious exception)
>range
79 headshot is scraping the bottom of the barrel for a single action, but definitely not horrendous. It's no Nagant Precision dead eye lmao
New fmj can help out with this now, if you're willing to invest all this cash into a mediocre pistol that's just there to give your primary more slugs

The centennial can exist alongside the 1873, the sparks can exist alongside the springfield, and so on. I don't see how a pax precision would be any different.
Low price, an extra shot, a deadeye variant, and HV ammo are plenty of reasons to take a nagant precision over a pax precision.

Yeah I mean it would be at least 70$ more (which is already 3 times the cost) so things llke increased damage and range are actually tradeoffs. It has one less bullet too.

uppercut should be nerfed, in a simple, brutal way.
Make it 2 slots gun. you want a fucking handgun that deals the damage of a rifle with dumb range too? Then you fucking give up on close quarter and very long range advantage by losing long barrel weapons (sawed off at most)
>but muh reload time
it has six bullets for a handgun youll use on medium/long why the fuck would you need a fast reload
>muh price
make it 170-180 so poorfags can be happy

Fuck off its still gonna hit like a truck and its the only handgun with long ammo (and biggest range i think?), not to mention wacky shit like explosives ammo+fanning

Great now it's an Obrez but $15 cheaper for worse damage, worse range, worse reload, worse velocity, and worse handling. Even dropping the price to 170 won't make people take it. You have completely killed off the Uppercut and not fixed the problem, which is that everyone will now be running Quartermaster+Obrez to get the same results. Bush wookies weren't fresh whiteshirts with 0 traits. Some of them even already ran Quartermaster+dual Uppercuts for the extra ammo. The only players hit hard by this would be shotgunners, who are less likely to survive to rack up traits and now have less of a means to compete with long ammo snipers. Though in the case of flechette shotguns you could probably run a 2 slot shotgun+Obrez and not notice any difference at all. Also dual Uppercut meme builds will never ever be seen again.

Just nerf the Uppercut's reserve ammo so some builds can't effectively treat it as a primary weapon and so it can't comfortably feed long ammo primaries. Then buff the Lebel's reserves so you aren't practically required to bring an Uppercut along with it.
>>
All the guns I use should be buffed. All the guns I lose to should be nerfed. Simple as.
>>
>>371857
> You have completely killed off the Uppercut
correct. " dosent undertstand builds should have exploitable weaknesses" the gun is stupid by design, but good mention of the obrez since its the other way around for that tiny rifle given that the uppercut is overlapping on its role
>The only players hit hard by this would be shotgunners, who are less likely to survive to rack up traits and now have less of a means to compete with long ammo snipers.
Correct, you want to have close quarter advantage? then you give up the long range, a pax should be the gold standard of "long" range for handguns
>Just nerf the Uppercut's reserve ammo
decent nerf, its soft but has impact, would support
> Then buff the Lebel's reserves so you aren't practically required to bring an Uppercut along with it.
I thought that lebel with its huge load chamber+the small reserve has the same ammo of a mosin? Still agreed tho, lebel could use some love
>>
>>371874
The lebel has the same total ammo, but its low reserve capacity vs magazine capacity means it gets fuck-all from ammo boxes.
Nerfing the uppercut's reserve ammo would magnify this effect, making it even worse to double up on for ammo.

I'm sorry, but a melee item with a 100% guarantee insta kill really doesn't belong in this game. It is more effective in close range than every shotgun except the crown and king. You can literally just wait right next to a door for a guaranteed kill, even if that guy shoots and kills you the shitty netcode will award you with a kill
>>
>>371956
>a melee item with a 100% guarantee insta kill
I don't see you crying about the $5 axe despite it doing the exact same thing, and it also has the same damage profile as compound axes, so theoretically there could be 100% guaranteed insta kill monsters lurking in every lair. But they aren't because there's a pretty easy way to get around that 100%: don't be within 3 meters of the guy. If you're rushing buildings you know people are inside without knowing what their loadout is, especially if they only ever fired a pistol at you, and you aren't taking it as cautiously as humanly possible, blame yourself when you die to a literal joke weapon.

On their own, no. If you criss-cross them with concertina mines and put down bear traps, you can kill inattentive people from full health. But that's a pretty pricey combo for something that only really works if you make it to the boss before anybody else. Also for a cheaper version of this, you can put concertina mines by green barrels. They break them as they go off and people get caught in the wire in the massive poison cloud while also getting bee'd.
>>
>>371964
I'd rather use the alerts, find any red barrels and you can make a nasty trap. Or any oil spill or yellow barrels.

Sure it has less penetration but how many times have you killed someone long range through a wall where you weren't shooting your rifle? Uppercut sits perfectly in that niche as a pocket carbine for shotgunfags or for extra long ammo for rifles.
>>
>>372146
forgot about price $275 vs $100
>>
What if there was just a 1-slot ammo pouch 'weapon' that uses up your secondary slot but gives you +75% extra reserve ammo on your primary?
>>
>>372146
Oh as an actual 'sidearm' sidearm? Yeah totally, pax has the advantage on rate of fire and recoil, but on the whole uppercut's niche for shotguns and extra ammo is unbeatable. But if I'm running a sidearm for close range I might as well go officer or fanning silenced nagant. As it stands pax just feels like budget uppercut.

They were. Most real "gunslingers" and "gunfighters" were using schofields (S&W model 3).

>Pax Precision as a 2-slot medium gun
>Schofield as an alternative to the Pax
What other guns/variants could fit into the game without being completely redundant?
I want to see a winchester 1897 so we can have another use for iron devastator but there's nothing it could do that the specter and terminus don't do already.

I was hoping for a magazine fed semi auto compact pistol with a system that it remembers the ammo count in each of the magazines and you'd have to load the magazines. You'd have one really quick reload but then a very long reload process to reload each magazine. Price it at around 250 to 300. Basically a middle ground between the bornhiem and the dolch.

A long barrel double barrel, or a variant of the caldwell rival since it's not fucking fair everyone else in the game can one shot me with it at 10m while I need 2 shots at 5.

>making the bornheim more obsolete
dont know if bait or not
>>
I think Hunt needs a battle pass that I can buy for forty dollars.
>>
>>372475
so much this!!!
>>
>>372473
the bornhiem is way over price in the eyes of most players. the officer, at 66 dollars, two shots in close range and has more rounds both in reserve and in the game.
>>
>>372482
uhhh... yeah? didnt say that wasnt the case. bornheim needs a price reduction and ammo increase badly, nice that the match was buffed to 2 tap but still leaves the base in a shit position. my point was that adding another semi auto to the mix only pushes the bornheim back more
>>
I like the hats in this game
>>
>>372475
The amount of people who unironically believe this and think Hunt's playerbase is dying because of the lack of season pass DLC is sad. It's like games can't just be really good and fun anymore, they need daily chores and hooks in your wallet to keep you from playing other games.

the amount of people who grinded out the plague doctor will disagree with you. literally anything to keep people playing is better than the dead periods this game has had

shame crytek wouldn't be able to afford the team to make a battlepass though

Are you Australian? This game has had a healthy player base since early access.

Dead periods you'll never ever notice without checking steam stats, because there's still over 10k people playing at any given moment in a game where matches max out at 12 and often you only encounter 1-2 other teams per match. Just because more people play to grind during events doesn't mean the game is dead when they aren't going. And during the plague doctor event you had matches full of people silently point farming in the blacked out parts of the map, ironically making matches feel more dead than they do now.

>Uppercut should be nerfed because fuck shotgunfags
Yup, but bomb lance cant be nerfed since one hit kill is almost any melee weapon (all of them headshot)
>>372194
the landmarks are neat, interesting foliage and terrain too, but the map seems stupidly big, its really boring if you spawn on the other side of the bounty, dosent help that dogs are fucking everywhere.
All those huge buildings are a pain to navigate, taking hints has never been slower.
