I propose that instead of unlocking traits by bloodline level we unlock them by completing unique challenges
Then we have the possibility of: do they unlock for the whole prestige or just on one hunter?
>Pitcher: get x dynamite kills
for one hunter, well 2 frags; bloodline maybe 6-10
>Resilience: Be involved in x resurrection
once for hunter, x times for prestige
get the idea?

How do you handle a really long losing streak? I think at this point I've gone 20 matches without getting a kill. Some of those were fights I picked where I just got outplayed, but most of them were deaths by people I had no idea were there and had no chance to react to.

I think I played around 20 matches tonight and didn't get a kill on anyone who wasn't forsaking guns to rush me with a melee weapon. Every gun fight has been me landing one shot tops and then drawing an outline around people with my bullets while the opponent either casually and cleanly two shot me or did a little of their own outline drawing into a headshot
By the end I was just grabbing the free hunters and taking them in only with whatever they came with since I knew any money spent on them would be wasted
I think I probably still went up in MMR from it though since one of the few melee rushers I did kill was someone running around with no gear at all who revived themself like five times straight into a point blank bullet

Dual or Fanning Chain Pistol FMJ. Seriously, dual wielding is the most braindead easy way of getting kills in this game simply because of your volume of fire. Bringing two pairs of chain pistols with FMJ and you're a walking bullet projector and a serious danger within like 30 meters.

from my experience they favor the center of the crosshairs. use a crosshair overlay, set the reticle to a dot, center the dot for hunt's lower 1/3rd set up, then use the dot to aim with duallies, your hit rate will be insane.

i CAN hit shit, but the fall-off on medium ammo is a fucking travesty. i genuinely loathe that all of crytek's playtesters are 2 star players who need long rifles with spitzer to play. its fucked the balance completely. the krag should've been a medium bullet rifle and not a long rifle, we have enough of them.
>>
>>816092
Are you retarded? If it were medium ammo it’d be busted because it’d require a larger ammo pool and need to be cheaper. The Krag is balanced around being a head popper that rewards aim and severely punishes the average Mosin/Lebel spammer, its not meant to directly compete with them but it’s intended to be the stopgap between medium and long.

Also, look at this cartridge and tell me it’s a “””medium””” length.
>>

>>816300
>also, the centennial by your logic is misclassed because the round it shoots irl is a fucking big ass round.
Wrong. The Springfield chambers .50-70 Government and is still considered medium ammo, and the smallest cartridge the Centennial chambered was .40-60 Winchester, smaller than the more covetted .45-70 Government. Pictured left to right is .50-70 Govt (Trapdoor), 45-70 Govt (later Trapdoors, but not Hunt), 45 Scofield (Scottfield), and .577/450 Martini–Henry. By the game’s sizing conventions, the 1876 is well within its definition of “medium” ammo, even if I agree that 40-60 is far from a “medium” length cartridge.

For shits and giggles I organized all of the cartridges in Hunt (excluding shotguns) by size and miraculously every single cartridge falls in line with its respective length category with the exception of the Scottfield, which like I notated on the sheet, should probably be .44 Russian but that would be retarded since we manufactured them for the Russians. Also, the Centennial is just *barely* shorter than the Krag. It could be .40-65, but that would make it about the same length as the Springfield Trapdoor and I'm pretty sure the cartridge in game is longer. If I even had to guess what the LeMat shoots, I'm sure it's .44 or .41 caliber because it's very close to the damage of the Conversion.

Anyway enjoy this autism
>>
>>816458
oh slight error in this, I originally organized it by overall size (Length * bullet diameter) before deciding to sort it by the game's organization of size based purely on length. So the note about the Nagant's cartridge being inaccurate isn't true for how this is sorted, but it isn't really a fair representation of how large the cartridge is based on how I measured them all due to the bullet being recessed in the case.

That's a known bug, if you trade with the last person on the server it begins shutting the server down. If you don't have a spectate button when you get downed just don't revive, only way to keep your hunter

I have no idea why people would find wasting their ammo trying to kill a man who can get back up 3-5 times and in the process kill you 3-5 times a worthwhile investment of their time. I avoided confrontations with solos that weren't outright trying to kill me entirely because the victories would be pointless and phyrric.

It's odd that I know when people are near but there's no exact thing in my mind that trips me off. I swear to god when I sit down and listen I hear hunter noises in the ambient sounds on an empty server, but I can be running through a compound I know is empty and then stop because my fucking spider sense is tingling and then I successfully ambush three dudes a minute later.

the real problem with long ammo is that there no combat range where it doesn't work. Shotguns are better at close range, bomblance is deadly at close range, but these weapons don't exist at long range and long ammo guns still have higher travel time and therefore trade less in close quarters. People who are afraid to push a compound with mosins not only can't click heads but are too baby to leave their comfort zones. Changing the weapons is not the fix for this.

There should be a way force people to push. A second banish timer that requires someone standing on top of the dead boss for its whole duration to remove one bounty at a time from the game. Because solos only need one bounty, this punishes every group in the match for not pushing. If kids don't want to play ball, just kick the ball over the fence. If everyone wastes your time, waste everyone's time. What are they going to do, be an engaging opponent?
>>
>>817645
I think the key is understanding the developer intent of the game is a campy sniper paradise with some side activities to placate everyone else. This has been a "problem" since early access the devs are acutely aware of and just don't care. They're never going to rebalance and fix long ammo supremacy because they don't want a balanced game, they want a game of long ammo supremacy with some lesser effective side strategies, autistic fucking kraut devs baka never again

Heavy knife is literally the worst for pvp since its the swing animation is worse than a stab more likely to hit arms. Just run the knuckle knife plus throwing axe combo. Its the best by far for all the ai, pvp and bosses. Srsly throwing axes melts the butcher and scrapbeak. There is a reason why many hunt sweats/streamers use those.

Plenty of them do. Dennis schwarz the main lead designer (nylesblack on twitch) is usually a 5-6 star sniper rat.

They are fine, only a few guns are slightly misaligned like the Derringer, springfield and berthy riposte. But its not enough to noticed during a fight. Its mostly just cope about missing your shots. Sometimes its just shitty servers tho. Record your footage and review your footage.
>>

>Knuckle knife
>Worthless. You can just use your gun against immolators.
If you wanna waste all your stamina on one emulator sure. There is only two down side to knuckle knife which are hellhounds, even then you can deal with them easily by doing 2 light attacks and pvp which doesnt matter since a melee headshot will insta kill any hunter anyway. The normal knife is slightly better because it can one tap to the torso but only if they lost 50 health (big bar). Knuckle knife is far superior to them.

>Throwing Axe
>So waste a tool slot that could be a trap
Tell me you are a 3 star without telling me you are a 3 star. Nobody who is good at this game uses traps, levering, fanning or dualwield. Throwing axes are great for bosses and going around the map quickly. speed>stealth.

T. Im a 5-6 star with 2.2k hours.

Nigger all you said is bullshit. First you can use traps against solo niggers to guarantee they fuck off or to make it harder for teams to revive, you can just trigger if it and it beats carrying a concertina bomb. 2nd if you are worried about speed just run the fuck away only immolators and dogs can catch up to players and dogs have really shit pathfinding. You can also go grounded like a normal person and they never fucking see you.
You are arguing for wasting 2 tool slots for the sole point of PVP and using every 4 stars crutch tool as well.
>>
>>818648
>First you can use traps against solo niggers
Kek you are definitely low elo. I barely see any solos in high elo and still have to lose to one of them in since the event started.

I havent died to traps since literally hundreds of hours. The only good use of traps is insta kill combo on the edge of the compound where people dont expect them.

I guess people like rachtaz are trash at the game then since they also run knuckle knife + throwing axes all the time.

Knuckle knife = best at pve, 2nd best at pvp.

Throwing axes = good at pve and especially killing bosses.

Heavy knife is dogshit because it has shit reach and is a swing instead of a stab.

Traps are shit aswell because effectively your only strategy is waiting for your enemy to run out of patience, being to dumb to step into them.

I agree on everything but traps, luv me concertina traps. Trick is don't rely on people stepping in em, shoot them and set them off. Good for blocking necro or putting on a door/window you want to control. My typical tool set up is throwing axe/medkit/concertina/chokes. Does it all.
>>
>>818736
People camping with traps inside is the most boring play style in the game imo, because people often times just sit in there waiting for the enemy to run out of patience and walk into them. When i defend i also play aggressiv which means jumping out the windows getting a hit/kill on somebody and going back in and in my experience if a teammate places traps everywhere it just ends up limiting my movement. Worse case scenario you have a match where nobody does anything for 30+ min. I'd rather fight a trio spitzer sniper squad because atleast there you can get a sneaky entry frag if the teammate without bounty decides to sneak out. Before you call me a filthy long ammo larry, my favorite playstyle is shotgun rushing. The best rounds are always those where everyone plays aggressive and doesnt camp. Same reason why i pick up bounty with serpent whenever i can.

If you dont use throwing axe youre throwing or running a suppressed gun or poison.
They take out hives and armored and zombies and are fairly silent if you ONLY LAND HEADSHOTS AND I SWEAR TO FUCKING GOD IF YOU HIT THEM IN THE BODY I WILL BUTT FUCK YOU MYSELF.

I've never liked knuckle knife because I've never used knuckles cause I have throwing axe and I avoid immolator WITH THE IMMENSE ABILITY OF JUST WALKING 5 FEET MORE THAT WAY.

Otherwise I run either concertina and smokes or concertina and fire traps. Then I either trap forced choke points or ladders without los or if theres a lot of openings I nigger that whole entire room up randomly so its a big ass fucking mine field to even enter from that entire side of the building and the whole damn thing is zoned off while I can just rainbow 6 the rest of the thing knowing my 6 is safe since my teammates are fucking stupid. Then I kill a guy or two and packmule his shit and set up more. If they dont want to push by this point and the extract is close ill just take bounty and go through the trapped room and take the trap off a window or something and then reset them up on the outside of the window and put the traps and building between them and me and extract and they usually dont make it in time.

Sometimes I just put the double concertina traps on major pathways like that one bridge underwater near the prison and lol if I get a hitmarker randomly throughout the match and I just resupply. I'm not a huge fan of concertina bombs since they are just in the way and are usually too dangerous and telegraphed to use unless you have pitcher or some is being a tking faggot and you can end him and pick up the other guy and extract.

I guess if youre solo, theres a few niche uses of those gunfire decoys but traps are usually better with more uses imo and I dont like the idea usually of getting that close to a 3 man team to use decoys where they don't get hyper aggressive and rush me once they realize im a solo.

>>819014
So I guess the real argument for knuckle knife and throwing axe is probably using them as a solo so that you have the most possible good choices for every situation which heavily outweighs playing a defensive playstyle or hyper aggressive playstyle since youre not going to want to be doing either as a solo MOST of the time.

Or running in trios with the solo mindset, which Im pretty sure is what people like ratcha z are doing since he knows he can rely on himself and his shooting ability to carry him much further than the time and positioning ability he'd lose setting up traps. Most people however lack this level of game sense and or aiming mechanics, so its probably higher in their favor to lean the other playstyle especially if you can 3 man stack concertina and fire traps with a coordinated team of hyper trap niggering making it a huge fucking bitch for anyone trying to enter any of the nearby buildings as the 3 other teams show up simultaneously and cant get into cover anywhere without a huge chance of either hitting the traps or getting shot and using up nades trying to clear them to make entry which puts things in your favor.

Its somewhat easy to get away with cheats but cheaters are pretty rare imo. I saw like 4 blatant cheaters in 2k hours, only in high elo (new acc, chinese names, multiple bans, struggles with ai but somehow headshots all my teammates). There is a descent amout of people who used ingame exploit tho like the derender, ladder and lemat glitch and only got like a week ban. Meanwhile in eft i saw more cheaters in 3 weeks than in all my hunt time.

How about a new consumable, like a Soul Bottle. When thrown onto a dead teammate, it starts a short banish-like animation on their body that revives them after 3 or 4 seconds. You could use it to revive a teammate at range, or passively revive them while you continue to push or cover their body.
But the real use case is that you can use it as a solo to self revive. So instead of having a passive, free revive at all times, its something that both costs money and takes up a slot in your inventory. And if you want multiple revives, you have to commit even more of your consumable inventory to bottles.
And if you want a really wacky option, make it so they CANNOT be purchased and instead have permanent world spawns, like beetles. So you can retain some of that death cheat gameplay loop where it's an ability you need to risk receiving in the world. And unlike event points, its a limited resource that you have to risk fighting over because if you sneak up at the end of the lobby it's likely to be already taken.

who cares about upgrade points when they're an unlimited resource? it would have been less retarded to say the bigger cost is the trait slot, but even then one trait slot for a permanent, passive get-out-of-jail-free card is a no brainer. solo necro is more valuable than literally any other trait in the game.

is this a low mmr meme?
there is zero reason you shouldn't be able to come back successfully almost 80% of the time. if you're putting yourself in situations where you're just going to get farmed, you're a dogshit player who's doing it to yourself.
oh yeah, you are a dogshit player who's doing it to yourself. you stepped on a red barrel like a chump and then insta-revived into suicide over and over because you don't have two braincells to rub together. subhumans like you shouldn't be allowed to discuss balance so long as you exist in a fairytale world so unskilled it exists devoid of reason. do you think the nitro and avto are shitty meme guns? do you think the bomblance is OP?

>all lower case poster thinks anyone will take him seriously
>>
>>819737
>Do you think nitro and avto are shitty meme guns
Yes, yes I do.
>>
>>819724
I mean unless the opponent camps your body and burns you out it is get out of jail free card. You can just wait a bit and then revive before either leaving with all your shit or trying get revenge. This is especially good if you were in a chaotic fire fight so it isn't obvious you were a solo.

Death cheat is retard proof but solo revive is a pretty close 2nd. If it stays they should significantly lessen the mmr adjustment for solo queue.
>>
My favorite thing about Hunt is the gunplay. Dying and losing a hunter does not bother me, but it feels like absolute shit to spend money on a cool gun, load into a match with it, spend 20 minutes knifing zombies and sneaking around, only to get shot by some cunt in a bush that I didn't see, and I didn't get to shoot my cool gun even once.

You know what, I'm starting to see it your way. If you only ever die in situations where self revive is good then it's totally overpowered, they should hotfix it out of the game as soon as possible.

People that kill you need to realize you're a solo, and have time to set up on your corpse. Two things that should never happen until after your first revive, and if you're reviving once and then dying again its your own fault for not winning the match off it or getting the hell out of there if you're not good enough to.
Seriously, this is how it works at high MMR. Since you're not high MMR, go watch any moderately popular Hunt streamer. 90% of the time, you get to just stand up after dying and keep playing like nothing happened. Your issues with it stem from a place of personal failure. Failure to put pressure on your enemies, failure to pick smart engagements and third party effectively, failure to pick the right time to stand back up. Just like the Nitro, just like the Avto, it's objectively one of the most useful, most impactful tools in the game but lowskill retards like you insist otherwise because you're just not good enough to make use of it.

Fanning is admittedly cool, but if your criteria for picking a trait is "I want a more effective sidearm" is there really any reason to take Quartermaster over it?
>>
>>823567
*Is there any reason to take Fanning over Quartermaster, is what I meant to say.
>>
>>823569
Medium slot weapons are kinda ass. Shotguns are confetti launchers and I prefer the uppercut to the obrez.
>>
>>823569
>>823567
Main reason to take Fanning over dualies is to ADS down pistols to have some range. Fanning with discipline to do 2-3 round burst can drop two hunters faster than a dual but you have low margin of error compared to the medium slot options.
>>
Quartermaster levering better than fanning

Does anyone find it weird what things the devs decide its important to telegraph and what things they don't?
>Spitzer gets a unique sound effect, but not Slugs
>Sparks Pistol gets a unique sound effect, but not medium slot shotguns or rifles

Such a huge part of the game is gathering information from sound and acting on what you learn, and some of the things that would most affect my decision making don't get unique sound cues. I would say its more important for me to know what type of ammo a shotgun has loaded than it is to know which particular shotgun it is. Meanwhile, knowing whether or not the Mosin shooting at me from the other side of Stillwater has Spitzer loaded doesn't matter at all, but I can do THAT with perfect clarity. It makes no sense and it feels bad to lose fights because of an imperceptible addendum to someones loadout that has no tell until you die to it.

I understand disliking mediums not having a different sound, you can occasionally run into a mosin thinking they're weaker at cqc and then die a to a 3slot shotgun. Though you can still run into 2 slot pocket slug handcannons so differentiating 2 slot rifles from 3 slots isn't a game breaking issue.

I can't think of any guns that sound different at range due to an ammo swap, you only know a mosin has spitzer once they shoot at you, and you can usually infer from context clues pretty quickly if the shotgun shooting at you has slugs as well. Realistically though, slugs and buck play so similarly that when you're approaching a compound with a known shotgun you should be playing the same way. The only thing I would take from knowing someone has slugs before approaching would be to think that the player has more confidence in their aim.

tl;dr always assume the player you're pushing has a slug shotgun and you'll preform a lot better.

Flechettes have a distinct sound but I guess it depends on your definition of “at range”

> Forgetting the best melee of all, throwing axe. One shots armored and every other small unit except for immolators, even with empty stamina. Looks badass. Second to the knife only in pvp, but can still get clutch throw kills with it. Overall best melee, no contest.
>>
>>823971
You argued two different things which confused me. Sparks pistol sounding different than a sparks lrr is information you can pick up at any range, which is why I agreed with you that it's inconsistent that 2slots don't have a different sound.

Ammo types don't sound different unless they're being shot at or near you, and while slugs don't sound different even when shot at you, it's usually pretty clear (assuming you survive the first shot) if they are slugs or not, rendering a difference in sound unnecessary - ie: did I take an unusual amount of damage at range, did the shotgunner miss an otherwise easy buckshot shot, is the shotgun shooting at me from a range that buckshot users normally wouldn't shoot at, is the shotgunner using a crown and king, did I take 15 damage from one shot?
If slugs had a significantly different playstyle from buck then I would understand changing the sound on them, but slug and buck users are staying in mostly the same range with the same playstyle - slugs are trading aim leniency, close range limb one-shots, and jump shots for a slight increase in one shot range. Again, if you are worried about slugs then just play assuming every shotgun user has slugs until proven otherwise, there's no downside to doing this and you won't have to worry about determining if they do have slugs.
