Steeve 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
>>
>>502571
Oppressors 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.
>>
>>502572
Even 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.

They 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.

Scout 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.
>>
>>504679
The Scout class is fine. It's just that all the shitters flock to it.
>>
>>504682
I 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.
>>

>missions in progression
that's what I mean, no one joins my lobby
>>
>>504688
I don't mind getting friendly fired a thousand times, as long as I can fucking see
scunts shoot one flare per room the entire mission, and when you ask for one they ignore you or tell you they're saving them
saving them for what nigger
if don't have ~5 flares left before you resupply, you're playing scout wrong
flare the ceiling first thing
flare where your teammates are operating while you mine
flare at the beginning of a wave
flare in the direction of progression or where the bugs are spawning from
fighting 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

Gunner here. I'm using Veteran Depositor, Resupplier, Vampire, Field Medic, Iron Will. Is this okay?
>>
>>504808
As 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.
>>
>>504808
swap depositor for bigger bags
less 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?
>>
>>504936
Too 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.
>>
>>504936
the 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
>>
>>504912
explosive reload subata and frag grenades might but idk, it's probably only hot plasma
>>
>>504941
Rocks are fine if you have a competent gunner
>>
>>504936
you are limited by how fast you can complete the mission by doretta's speed
>>
>>504936
Because 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.
>>
>>504960
couldn't agree more, drilling ahead should strictly be reserved for EDD
>>
>>504912
most reliable technique is to use the neurotoxin grenades and use EPC heat mod to set a grunt on fire.
>>

persistent plasma
>>
>>505037
doesn't light it on fire, tried
>>
>>505044
go cry to devs until it does again
it should and it was before they broke it
>>
>>504912
yes unfortunately
gone are the days when charged EPC explosion could ignite gas clouds and what not
>>
>>504912
they changed it so that "ignitable" stuff only ignites from weapons that applies heat
that's why plasma stuff doesn't ignite gas anymore, since it's fire damage, not heat damage
>>
>>504936
End 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
>>504962
Yeah, 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.

>>504808
Field 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.

>>504728
just git gud and attempt the machine event during extraction or die trying. Most machine events you can solo if you aren't a shitter.
>>
>>505102
I 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
>>
>>504962
agreed
predrilling is like premature ejaculation: a poor show of performance
I'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 it
just wing it lmao

>EI takes away some of the sting of being hit by these
>>
>>504808
Iron 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
>>
>>504808
Resupplier 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 unnecessary
Also stop using iron will, invest that slot into something better like Shield Link or Berserker or Dash or Beastmaster
