You have good luck dwarfs right?
>>5025281.6g update, what is
Domesticated Steeve whenI want a pet Glyphid that I can play with on the space rig.
>>502559>bugs on the space rigfirst swarmers that are promptly killed, the lootbugs? Will dwarves faggorty know no end?
>>502563Tell me you wouldn't want to see how an Oppressor would act after a few Oily Oafs.
>>502564>getting an oppressor to drink a beer before it destroys the space rig
>>502568Steeve is tame enough. We just need to take it further so they can be domesticated.Also>implying the dwarves, drunk or otherwise, don't smash up the place as is
>>502571Oppressors are shown to be able to move earth with their stomps. That can do massive damage to the relatively thin metal workings of the space rig.
>>502572Even the most wild animals can be tamed. There's just no effort to do so because there's no benefit to doing so. Which, yeah, there's no benefit to domestication Oppressors, I'll give you that. Maybe something smaller, like a Grunt or Slasher. We can already effortlessly tame them with the Beastmaster skill. That tells me they can be friendly if given the chance. They're just very territorial.
Die like your mother did!
>>502575>there exists a mod to remove this line from the gameI'm still baffled by how easily offended people are sometimes.
>>502577>letting redditors live in your head rent freeYou're just as bad as them
>>502585'rent free' is not applicable herelurk moar

>join lobby>buy leaf lover>owner drinksanother one bites the dust
Post your boys.
>>502819Gonna update this once I finish getting all the new cosmetics. This is already a bit outdated.
>>502559Disgusting bug shagger, neck yourself immediately
>>502714Protip if you need to get rid of a leaf lover on the bar without drinking it, pick it up and then change your class.
"lvl 100+" players everyoneleaf lover didn't even mine any minerals, and called resupply pods in the most retarded locationsyes, I HP'd him before he got in the pod
>>503082wtf is that mod showing the number in the middle? seems pretty leaf lover to me
>>503123pickaxe power attack cooldownI have a bad habit of not noticing when it's ready since the icon is tucked off to the side, and you can't move it, so the timer seems harmless enough
>>503032ill just buy more faggotHOSTILE TAKEOVER
I swear every promotion assignment will have mining and escort in them.
>>503404Even if the free revives are much better than IW, why would I ever want a robot when I have actual humans? Hell he can already trivliaze the game a bit since you can sick him on lone bugs with his infinite ammo and not have to worry about your own.
So the sludge pump is trash now?
>>503404>no more dash>no more vampire>no more deep pocketsno thanks
>>503373mining goodescort badsalvage bad
>>503422pretty much outside of like 3 builds, and even then it's worse than your other 2 optionsplus side is that it doesn't fuck with anyone else's temperature reactions
>>502528nice spelling you fucking retard
>>502871>five loadouts per dwarf with their own looksbased
ayyy fucking lmao
>>503861Is this base game or modded?
>>503869what do you think retard?
>>503878What mod then?
>>503869I tried it after disabling all the mods, I guess the game went dumb and thought the 10x mod was still activethe fact that I managed to get to the 1st room unscathed was an achievement on its own, went through two 10x bug swarms and a literal Shredder rain
>>503893>remove all particles but weapontoolsI wish this was configurable, the only particles I want to get rid of are the unburrowing particles waves create when they spawn, shit makes my game stutter hard when a wave spawns
>browsing mod list for the first time>see one that spawns a dread whenever button is pushed (or when fuel cell charge is done in salvage)kek seems fun but I don't know anyone that would want to fuck with a mod like that
>>503912more like no one wants the hassle of downloading a mod upon joining a game even though that mod might be goodgod, the categorization of mods and mod.io implementation were so fucking dumb
>>503913I thought with mods that effect gameplay people just automatically get it when installed or in some cases only the host needs it
Nitra needs to be a lot more abundant
>>503933Funny, I feel lately I've had plenty of nitra to use
steam://joinlobby/548430/109775240977589844/76561198060581122USW EDD, gonna make it public or join a public after 10 minutes if no one joins
>>503915yes but who would want to wait? they could be playing in a vanilla server instead of waiting for mods to be downloaded
>>503958I think you overestimate how large mods are
I am going to use elephant rounds on the Bulldog
>>503965I'm back; it's fun but also shit.
>>502564>Oily Oafsthink a bit biggerfeed it some mactera brew and IMAGINE the smellthen promptly die as that shit's poisonous
>try out the plasma rifle>it fucking sucksAll of these new guns and only the plasma cutter is any good
>Free with PS+Do consoles have their own servers or is it shared with PC
>>504014PS are on their own servers, there's no crossplay.
>>503422It's fun if your gunner is running burning hell but yeah it's shit. It's only really good with super slow upgrades so you can stack persistent plasma and neurotoxin. But you can achieve the same area lock down with sticky flames and you get axes.
>>503996Drak is good though
>>504036You post like a passive aggressive bitch.
>>504086cope and seethe
does anyone else regularly turn off their flashlightit just feels so useless, literally just a bright circle jpeg plastered 2 feet away from your face
only schizos doi surely like to not see shit at all rather than see something at least
>>504181i do it when its PE or there's some other mineral on the wall, makes finding them a lot easier
>>504190This. The glow from compressed gold especially gets hidden by the flashlight.
>>503404Hell yeah I'd press it. The only active perks I use are Field Medic and Dash, if Bosco is around that takes care of one for free and I can live without Dash.Considering Bosco is more reliable than %90 of randoms I'd gladly take him (assuming I get to control him).
>>504181>>504183>>504190>>504194They really need to buff the flashlight, or at the very least make it an upgrade option. It doesn't need to be a portable spotlight but fuck, at least make it better than the ~7m range it has now, it's pathetic.I hate that you can't bring this up anywhere on official channels like the steam forums or discord otherwise you get dev cocksuckers saying "looolll it's meant to be dark!!1! use ur flares XDDdd" and completely missing the point of the argument. Maybe if pub Scouts would remember to use their goddamn flare gun once in a while this wouldn't be an issue.
>>504238>Maybe if pub Scouts would remember to use their goddamn flare gun oncetell them to do thatif they don't kick them
>start 3/3 haz 5 salvage with mactera plague>during the repair phase only 1 (ONE) glyphid spawns>the rest is all mactera spawning in swarms of ten or more >I decided to solo scouteven with cryo nades I was shitting my fucking pants, jesus christ

>>504243can't kickquickjoin is faster than hostingtakes half a mission's amount of time to fill up a lobby sometimes, if anyone joins at all
>>504619>fill up a lobbythe fuck are you doingwho the fuck joins lobbies instead of missions in progressionliterally just start a nonsolo mission and go in
>be innamining>first bad sign is double scouts>quota met>button pushed by one of the scouts while the host is checking the last room>no readycheck, no words spoken, just button>"but the objective was done">get to shuttle>this dumb motherfucker's standing in the corner with Corporate Marine>"you should just play solo instead">he was bronze 2Scout was my first class that I got smart with but I now have understanding on scout haters are the most populous group of class haters.
>>504679The Scout class is fine. It's just that all the shitters flock to it.
>>504682I think every class is fine, but how a retard plays a class is where people find problem, and scout's the retard magnet.That said I think that other classes being played by retards are worse. I've seen drillers and engies friendly-fire as often as they left-click.
>>504675>missions in progressionthat's what I mean, no one joins my lobby
>>504688I don't mind getting friendly fired a thousand times, as long as I can fucking seescunts shoot one flare per room the entire mission, and when you ask for one they ignore you or tell you they're saving themsaving them for what niggerif don't have ~5 flares left before you resupply, you're playing scout wrongflare the ceiling first thingflare where your teammates are operating while you mineflare at the beginning of a wave flare in the direction of progression or where the bugs are spawning fromfighting in the dark is cancer because you can't see where anything is coming from, it's like being jumped by ninjas in a dark room
>>504708Works on my machine.
>finish escort duty>go back to start machine event>retard presses escape button>set game to friends only>disconnect internet and watch everyone get kicked outSo when are these retarded danes going to prevent this?
>>504729Seriously though what region? Even in dead hours on west coast I get people to join my lobbies.
>>503404>give up my dash/shield link gunner with all the reload perks Sorry bosco, there's always the start of the match.
He cute tho
Gunner here. I'm using Veteran Depositor, Resupplier, Vampire, Field Medic, Iron Will. Is this okay?
>>504808As actives go I usually lean towards hoverboots on everything. That said even a single Iron Will can save a mission and gunner's a solid choice for that active.For passives, I'd recommend Born Ready if you're not using the minigun. I use Big Bertha on the Thunderhead, so instead of reloading I just have to switch to the burst pistol every 55 rounds. Vampire's always solid.
>>504808swap depositor for bigger bagsless trips, isn't mogged in multiplayer, and doesn't lower your guard by promising you 15% less damage taken which in reality doesn't save you from anything
Are the hot projectiles the only thing that can light the goo on fire in driller's arsenal?
Why do people hate Escort missions?I know in general Escort missions are a staple in video game frustration, but DRG's escorts are among the very few I genuinely enjoy.What is it? The lack of exploration? Having to babysit the drilldozer?
>>504936Too long. It's fine in concept and I don't mind it too much if there's only one refuel stop but if you have to do a second it's a drag. Hearthstone fight could also stand to have more variety.
>>504936the rocks and only the rocks, platform bridge works, pretty sure plasma rockets one shot them (which is a bug), you can freeze them for triple damage, but they force you to build a certain way if you dont have an engie and thats kind of annoying
>>504912explosive reload subata and frag grenades might but idk, it's probably only hot plasma
>>504941Rocks are fine if you have a competent gunner
>>504936you are limited by how fast you can complete the mission by doretta's speed
>>504936Because of the faggots that feel the need to drag an already long mission out for 20+ more minutes by pre-drilling before activating Doretta. I noticed this has become more and more common as of late, and it's getting really fucking tiring. I had a group just sit around and do nothing for almost 10 minutes. I asked why we haven't gone yet and they said "we're waiting for a Driller to join".I get it. In an EDD, there's a shit ton of risk involved by letting the drilldozer blindly go through the tunnels. One room of Spitters or exploding plants can kill a run instantly. But don't bring that shit into normal missions. Even on Haz5 it is 100% unnecessary.
>>504960couldn't agree more, drilling ahead should strictly be reserved for EDD
>>504912most reliable technique is to use the neurotoxin grenades and use EPC heat mod to set a grunt on fire.
>>505037doesn't light it on fire, tried
>>505044go cry to devs until it does againit should and it was before they broke it
>>504912yes unfortunatelygone are the days when charged EPC explosion could ignite gas clouds and what not
>>504912they changed it so that "ignitable" stuff only ignites from weapons that applies heatthat's why plasma stuff doesn't ignite gas anymore, since it's fire damage, not heat damage
>>504936End boss has 0 variety. Same room layout, same order (swarm/rocks/swarm/laser). Even machine events have more terrain variety, and the Omen even has different module options.Mission length 3 quad gunner escort is pretty fun though. More shooty shooty and an extra mining stop before the heartstone stop, and with 4 gunners the boss is easy.Because of how Doretta works, playing with shitters can be frustrating because you can lose the mission if Doretta dies at the end. Every other mission you can just run away, revive people and have a breather.>>504960>>504962Yeah, predrilling sucks the fun out of an already dry mission. Handy if you hear a bet-C you want to deal with early, but that's about it.>>504808Field medic isn't as useful on Gunner since shields already have the fear effect and give you enough time to safely revive. I prefer dash on gunner, much more useful.>>504728just git gud and attempt the machine event during extraction or die trying. Most machine events you can solo if you aren't a shitter.
>>505102I do hope they learn from the Caretaker that having more variety in the phases of a fight is more fun, and that they apply that to the heartstone. Give us some crystal-infused glyphids, or create an environmental effect that reduces visibility for a phase. Plenty that could be done.
>>505102>Handy if you hear a bet-C you want to deal with early, but that's about it.or a Detonator
>>504962agreedpredrilling is like premature ejaculation: a poor show of performanceI'll only predrill on 3rd EDD stage or if I hear a BET-C because people are too stupid to not shoot it or run around itjust wing it lmao
>>504808I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest Elemental Insulation - my reasoning:>firing your guns makes you slow down>in the case of lead storm you basically can't move while shooting entirely>makes you susceptible to ranged attacks>praetorian spit & acid spitter shots hurt like fuck>EI takes away some of the sting of being hit by these
>>504808Iron will and Field medic is a really good broken combo but don't be afraid to experiment, especially as gunner. Gunner shield already gives you free revives so maybe try dash and iron will so you don't need to shield yourself as often. Or if you prefer using you shield to prevent disaster like a true chad gunner then maybe try shield link and double shield your brothers with dash/field medic/iron will as a backup.
what kind of haz 3 shitters even predrill lmao
>>504808Resupplier and Field Medic I would drop for gunner because he has the shield which can cover his ass whilst he's collecting ammo or reviving. Making it go faster at that point is kinda unnecessaryAlso stop using iron will, invest that slot into something better like Shield Link or Berserker or Dash or Beastmaster
>Data Deposit>Crate>Steam is down for maintenance just before anyone could get into the drop podfucking jej, I feel bad for those folks
>>505533all the things you get from crate and machine events are with you the second you get them regardless of mission completion statusyes you can literally just quit after doing crate/machine event if you want to be an extra faggot today
>>505437>Beastmaster>recommending reddit: the perkI am so sick of this hugbox invincible shot-blockerwant to revive your teammate?>pet stevewant to mine this mineral vein>whoops steve is right behind you and meleeing steve takes priority and slows down your mining animation too because you hit an entitywant to shoot at big bug's weakspot?>steve's bodyblocking the whole weakspot, eat shitthis worthless pet is the sole reason I run cryo and explosive reload on everyone I can
>>505605Literally none of this has happened to me in the 100+ hours I have using the perk.
>>505607but it has to your teammates
>>504679saying r in chat is peak reddit, the only acceptable answer is a host dictatorship
beast master is leaf lover bug sympathizer shit, its fucking disgusting and it breaks my immersion and I will never not kick such subhumans on sight
>>505632No, it's using the tools you have at your disposal. If you can get a bug to kill about a dozen of its own friends, that's a dozen less bugs you need to waste ammo on.
>>505647whats the fun in having the game play itself for you? stick to haz 1 you fucking leaf lover loser
>>505647faggot toolsuse your shitter perk all you want, but don't complain when you get called out for it
>>504679we out here
>>505605Holy cope and seethe batman nobody asked for a 500 word essay on why you don't like the perk chill tf outIf you're still gonna mald about steeve's hitbox you should be using this anyway drg.mod.io/unpettable-steeve
>>505665>using mods that aren't just UIhang yourself
>>505666>WAAAAA I HATE STEEVE MOMMY MOMMY MUH IMMURSHION>Ok here is a solution to your problem>WAAAAA I HATE MODDING MOMMY MOMMY MUH DEVELOPER VISION
>>505671How about you don't use the bug in the first place and we won't need mods to unfuck it you griefing retard?
>>505672I literally don't even use beastmaster on any of my loadouts it's just objectively a better pick than field medic on gunnerBut w/e i can tell you've been drinking the koolaid if you're unironically calling steeve "griefing" so there's no use talking to you, Have fun seething about the reddit perk, I might run it the next time i play in memory of you 8)
>>505652By your logic, Engineers shouldn't use sentry guns because they play the game for them.
