If I want to make a shotgun build, what's the best direction to go?
>>3055653tincan with a sniper on the side
>>3055425oh shit, the TENTACLES!!!I forgot they're psionic; thats neat
>>3055511>beasts headthats not an oddityits a scale
>>3055653mobile pump shotty with good agi
>>3055425you really get more damage from all-in than from pickled shrooms?
>>3054878Melee can be simple or as complicated as you want it to be. An unoptimized knife guy with all his stats in agility, dex, and con performs perfectly well in normal difficulty and probably hard too if you at least optimize perks (from the selection you have with those stats, i.e. not having the crit perks). He gets tons of attacks per turn, can throw grenades, set all the traps, and pick all the locks. That's more than enough for a playthrough.
>Looking into shotgun build>Tons of conflicting info, people saying perfect scattering is good, others saying it sucks ass>People saying fragmented chaos is broken and doesn't work as Styg intended>Barrel stare sucks, or is very goodI hate how autistic this game's playerbase is
>>3055855The only truly autistic thing is hunting for the perfect build guide instead of just playing the game and having fun.
>>3055855its not autistic, its just that most people are tards tards dont know or care that they're tards, so they confidently spout their opinions as if they were smart
Does joining the pirates lock you out of some of the facilities?
>>3055855>using shotguns over ARsThey're retarded by default.
any fun first timer builds?
>>3055958here's a good simple one that starts strong and stays strong, easy to play, easy to build
>>3055855>Perfect ScatteringMost builds skip this suggesting the math on it is subpar.>fragmented chaos Good, but "supplemental". take late. Doesn't work with Critical Power (also mediocre).>Barrel stare It's optional if you're not planning a glass cannon, but favored on most forum builds. The extra damage for 1 on 1 skirmishes is pretty good, no?I think the gist of shotguns is... they're boring, just like ARs. They're good for versatility builds. Just take the damage multiplier per stack, and move on to other perks to make your gameplay more interesting. At the end of the day you'll still be playing yet another mindless TM glass cannon.
>>3055947Shotguns are better on non-can builds just because you don't have a move and shoot penalty.
>>3055998nah, mobile AR + TM is the best build in the entire gamethe 5% move'n'scoot aint shit
Anons please give me a build which has:>enough WILL to pass all lore skill checks>hyrbid psi + anything else in any capacity

>>3056007thats not true
>>3056013What's the name of this abomination. It looks horribly full of min-maxing.
>>3056020thats because it isfine-tuned skill and ability points
>>3056021What's the name of the guide? It just looks like a horrible experience for someone who wants to play with persuasion and pickpocketing. The low Stealth sucks ass.
>>3056023he asked for something specific and I gave itif you don't like it dont use it
>>3056024it's a guns / MT hybrid with crowd control and no TM. where's the guide how to play this shiz
>>3056027no refunds, brainlet
>>3056030give a level 12 skill distribution
>>3055958This is a fun build that is pretty flexible and new-player friendly. The entire idea behind it is you'll be able to sneak, you'll have a little bit of health to help you if you make mistakes in fights (which you will), and you'll have TONS of combat control utility with grenades and suppressive fire. I only built up to level 10, reason being because (A) that is the meat of the build and (B) the rest of the way you can really decide what direction you want to go. I would highly recommend looking out for the feat 'Commando', it pairs very well with this build and is very strong. Beyond that, if you want to go more into crafting, by all means go for it. I'd put my additional attribute points into dex and perception if I were you. Perception obviously increases your accuracy, dex will let you get extremely low cost shots off with submachine guns. Forgot to mention, between sprint and tabi boots when you find them you'll be pretty mobile as well.
>>3056037have fun, anonim playing it right now myself
>>3056037Are you fucking kidding me, he gave you a sniper build with low perception and a bunch of shit in it. why are you thanking him?

Any non-tincan AR builds? Prefer to not use psi
>>3056044>sniper that lowBre, it's like you don't like zoning out 11 targets in a single turn.Also yeah I forgot about sword, probably before or behind spear.
>>3056040>anon does what I asked him to do>NOOOOOO YOU CANT DO THATDo you have a better build to recommend? I want a psi hybrid with max WILL of course it will be shit.
>>3056045this was an n16/spec ops build; its better if you craft your own stuff
>>3056049you know the guy that did the crowbar run? his favorite build is a sniperhe says sniper is the worst gun
>>3055783I'm not entirely sure. I never tested it with this particular run but from previous benchmarks, base damage (All-in) gave somewhat better damage numbers than crit damage (pickled shrooms).
>>3056053I played my own build and it was pretty amazing.Some people just don't know what they are doing and then call thing bad.
>>3056056he's the best underrail player ive seen, he knows exactly what he's doingyou're focused on first turn alpha strikes, while ignoring that other guns are also very strong but also more versatile and not as reliant on luckbesides, 11 kills (maybe if you're using every AP boost available) is nice, but other guns can do that and more
>>3056050Yes, you can make a MT/TM build with grenades and Last Stand that's viable for Dom. Simple and effective. You just have to import a level 1 character from the old version for it to be Will based.https://underrail.info/build/?HgMHAwkDDQgAwqAAAAAAwohQTABBSWVQQ1AAAMKgRi8AVcK_UGIrLBYqZcK9ZsKEH8KHPcKIPnpywrdtwp7CncKuw4ds4qOJCuKrpQXfvw
>>3056053>he says sniper is the worst gunTo be fair what's the point of snipers (range + big damage) if range is a joke and you can one-shot almost everything with a laser pistol?
>>3056069exactlyyou can even do dex vers and get very low AP costs
>>3056069It matters in the expansion with its large open areas that sometimes have impassable canals inbetween.

New player here. What exactly is the difference between smgs and assault rifles? It seems like they share tons of feats except smgs are just better. Am I wrong?
>>3056119Bullet speed, which penetrates armor much more effectively. All SMGs are medium speed. And have inferior range. Then again, once you get to crits, these differences may be nullified.
>>3056119smgs spit out more bullets which do less damage, basicallyyou need to be closer to have good accuracy, they have a harder time against armor, you need more bullets and more repair kits, and more dexterity to get the cheapest attack costsARs have range and more damage per bullet, and the concentrated fire feat which basically gives them even more damagesmgs can spit out more damage per turn, but its more conditionalARs are superior, but its like being mega OP vs just being super OP
>>3056119you use a shit ton more repair kits with a smg
Ok bros, I'm going to do an assault rifle build for my first playthrough. Looked up tincan gameplay and don't really like what I see. I've played a few crpgs before so I think I'll be fine to freestyle my own build. This look good?
>>3056155I'll give you some strong hints.>Traps and grenades are your answer to all your problems. Kind of like a skip button really.>Look up the feats section, click on all.

Haven't played this game in ages so I don't really remember what's good and what's not. Is an agile spear character who's all in on dodge+evasion a good idea on hard? Would also be dipping into some psi stuff because I ignored magic in my other playthrough.
>>3055855Barrel stare is okay for bosses I guess, its condition is mutually exclusive with leading shot but you can taser the boss and not have to deal with evasion. For everyone else the damage is not worth getting into melee range and dealing with evasion.
>>3056041>epistols not the lowest of the guns but instead on top of everything>fist over knife when unarmed has a much shittier power curve and gloves are just knife-lite>full psi somehow not in top 5>any melee weapons at all besides maybe knife over ranged weapons (except for xbow it sucks cock)>firearm pistols UNDER XBOWS when it's around knife level>no grenades mentioned when they're top 3Massive bait.>>3056044Decent ranking except for sniper being so low and hammer being lower than throwing knives.>>3056053>sniper is the worst gunWhen energy pistols exist?>electroshock would be fine except it has no range and it needs aimed shot to reliably kill more than the first enemy, plasma pistol is the designated boss killer, so laser pistol is your only workhorse>need 14 dex so your laser pistol can actually fire as much as sniper can comfortably achieve with a feat and a weapon mod while having twice the range>need 9 con for SI so you can actually reliably oneshot NPCs with your peashooter>need 7 int at least for a bit of base damage + crit damage>don't have many points for per leftover so your natural accuracy will be in the dumps and you'll have to overcompensate with CC throwables, just play a grenade build>if you dump int for per on the one build that has to get perhaps the most effective electronics around then crafting will be an absolute pain in the assMeanwhile sniper just gets 5 str maxes per if they want and gets three feats and hits everything besides some number bloated Dom bosses. You want to start oneshotting high HP NPCs without aimed shot too? You can get SI if you want, or branch out into some psi for utility instead. And you don't need to craft a new weapon every 20 quality jump for an extra 1 base damage.>>3056119ARs are much higher base damage and can equip scopes for either more crit chance or more crit damage. They also have better effective range so you can fire from further away. SMGs are less committed to one burst though.
>>3056391Laser pistol built around crits will deal 800-900 dmg without any conditions or special shots, which is enough to 1 shot anything but bosses on dominating for 15 AP (or less if you go more dex). It has also a precision bonus and big range for a handgun.Fist is better than knife because you can get them down to 4 AP which will proc all those sweet feats like taste for blood and cheap shots more often. Also combo, which can stun ontop of dealing massive extra dmg.
What do you think about this sniper?https://underrail.info/build/?HgQFCgkMAwPCoCMAAAB9wqBkVQAAwpvCggAUeAAAAEsAFF8rMWI5ATUCf35LRxkzRMKHwrXCpMKm4qCKA-KnlgXip5cD4q-8A-KvvQHfvwGonna stick with rathound regalia for the entire game for the +1 STR
>>3054878the DLC is hellish for everything that isn't Psi so you'll need to learn to cope anywayIIRC the melee jet skill is free
>>3056367Depends on what psi stuff you run. TM is generally the "fuck it" psi path that people use, especially for melee builds. Prob don't need me to tell you this but dodge & evasion require heavy investment to be worth it and they kill a lot of your crafting options.
Attacking a man in melee? Foolishness, woman. Strages rides rivers of red once more because I beat DOMINATING with him before the Tchort buff
Help a nigga who has only ever done a pure psi build make a gun build. Had a few questions:1. Does crit chance behave normally with burst/full-auto, or is there some special rule? For example, if my crit chance is 35%, does that mean its only 35% on single normal shots or does it remain 35% for each shot fired in burst/full-auto? 2. Is strafe worth taking on an assault rifle or sniper build? AR/sniper are the main things I am looking at right now.3. How much perception is actually necessary? From what I have read, people seem to act like you're fucked on any guns build if you're not pumping perception all the way.
>>3056702Works normallyNopeIf you want hit things that are far away, you want it high
>>3056702depends on difficultyif dom you want 12+anything else you can get away with under that
>>3056703Strafe is definitely worth it on sniper rifles. Being able to run around all you want and still have perfect accuracy on spearhead is really good. It also means you don't have to care about those situations where los fucks up so you can see an enemy but the game still insists you move 1% of a tile before it lets you shoot them, because fuck those are frustrating without strafe.
>>3056702Yes, crit calculates for each individual shot in a burst.Strafe is only worth it on sniper and xbow.Depends on the gun. Burst guns can go as low as 8 on Dom due to how many attacks they inflict. Shotguns around there too since you have a feat that ignores a huge chunk of evasion. Sniper/xbow you definitely want over 10, any kind of pistol you want around 10 or more if you can. Keep in mind I'm just mentioning the minimum required to max hit chance on common enemies, since it fluctuates depending on your range.>>3056732Agreed on the weird tile fuckery where somehow an enemy can shoot at you but somehow you can't fire back without moving. It's really annoying and has cost me many a reload.
>>3056732>>3056785I always wondered how that happens.You can't move half a tile, so how is that even possible?Especially annyoing if you are trapped in a net or acid blob.
>>3056795it's the same way enemies can see and shoot a tile further than you
>reach DC elevator>go do expedition>reach Nexus of Technology>reroll with a new buildI have never even reached DC and I've been playing since 1.0Help
Is it wise to take 3 intelligence if I intend to go heavy on crafting? From what I've seen the crafting feats are pretty negligible.
>>3056814You can boost your crafting skills by 15% in your core city home if you buy all the work benches and eat Joe's special for additionally +5 for all skills.
>>3056806Expeditions is worth finishing. Deep Caverns is worth it once. I'll never subject myself to Deep Caverns again.

Your sex slaves belong to me now.
>>3056702you shouldnt play xbow or sniper without strafeARs dont need it; that 5% is nothing
>>3056957Did you pickpocket his crossbow?
>>3056970you cant pickpocket an equipped weapon or utilities afaik, but you can pickpocket regular boltssince xbows dont have loaded ammo like guns, if you steal the bolts they can't shoot (except for equipped special bolts)then I hit him with mental breakdown to keep him from going before his rats so they block the door
Throwing knives are shit! SHIT!
>>3056985I still don't understand how their crit works.
>>3056985They're pretty "memeish", but you have throwing, three pointer and crafting, so you already won the game.
Energy pistol or firearms pistol
>>3057027Energy is stronger.
>>3057027Both are great fun, but I like that you can play with unique firearm pistols never putting a single point into crafting and still make it to the end.
Do you always play dominating anon?
>>3057038Yes.But my first two runs was on hard because Dominating didn't exist yet.
>>3056987me eitherdoes anything boost it at all? flat dex stat? death's grin maybe? what about crit damage? it's a fucking mystery and the wiki has nothing to say

>>3054725>What is your favorite build?Probably critical focused AR with 10 agility. Not the best build and I haven't seen/heard anyone else do it.

I also like drop zone, but its not my fav
>>3057156i've grown to hate a good chunk of expedition music because of tedious dungeons
>See build idea that peaks interest on forums>First thing I see is psi empathyI hate how fags shoehorn their dumb magic everywhere. Especially temporal manipulation.
>>3057578Literally no reason to not pick it unless you want to gimp yourself on purpose for some fake feeling of superiority.
he so smol
The missing train isn't here.
>>3057578Its their cheat code, babies can't handle the game without it.
>>3057635Let me guess, you need grenadier and throwing and traps every single playthrough too? Lmao. I have over 300 hours in this game and never play psi. Can prove it with achievements. Closest I came was fucking around with temporal manipulation up to like level 8, where I realized it was fag shit and dropped it like a bad habit. Real men only need a fucking gun, big ass hammer, or a knife/spear.
>>3057743Case in point.
>>3057749Pathetic. I really hope Styg finds a way to make TM not able to be shoved into whatever build with pretty much no downsides in Infusion. That little health penalty is nowhere near enough to be able to milk free actions because you're too much of a dumbfuck to kill without it or position yourself to be untouchable. People talk about how strong grenades and traps are, and don't get me wrong, they are. But TM is rarely mentioned in that convo. It's just as much of a fucking crutch.
>>3057755Whatever you say, discord troon.
Holy shit.The Praetorians are fucking trash
>>3057788Industrial bots are just too god-tierThey even have quite high crit resistance.

HERE WE GOOOOOOOhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxNeZiOr_zs&ab_channel=MYFIRSTSTORY-Topic
I know you lurk, Styg. I have an idea for Infusion which you better listen to.Certain merchants should have a "special order" function where the player can specially order certain items, particularly crafting components, and be able to set a range for the level of quality the item will come in. For example>I want to order a Marauder assault rifle frame, quality between 99-120The kick is, you overpay for special orders. By a lot. Ideally like 3-4x what it would cost just by finding it in a vendor's shop by chance. It'd also take a little while to arrive, similarly to how super steel takes a minute to forge.
>>3057870Faster than you but you're more durable than me. Let's finish this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VznpUInj7dg&ab_channel=RafifDewantara
>>3057875Your fists were slowed by your gloves. Even if you killed me, you would die from shock. It was an honor to fight someone else who saw the weakness of weapons. I will remember you forever. Rest now, Carnifex.
>>3057873this has been suggested already, more than once
stack dex or perception for energy pistol
>pure knife dex build with no psi>got the mushroom cove scavenger robot eventwish me luck
>Want to do chemical pistol geneva conventions violator build>All the ones I find on forums use versatilityI'm still pretty new but am I missing something? Is it not possible to make a non-versatility chemical pistols build?
>>3058074it is, its just not as optimalyou'll want to split points between dex and perwith enough in int for feats
Fix the fucking Shock Shurikens. They should scale mechanical damage just like Throwing Knives.Also 30 per stack is cancer. They should stack like special bolts for crossbows.Having more feats for critical chance with throwing knives would be nice. Making three-pointer work with them would make throwing knifes build actually fun, strong and playable.
>>3058074Possible? Sure, but versatility is beyond broken so every tryhard build uses it.
>>3058078>>3058088Would this work? I'd split all my additional points I get into levelling between perception and dexterity. I really have no idea what I am doing, only ever done a metal armor assault rifle build before this.
>>3058104yep, that looks fineyou'll want your dex at a point that lowers the ap cost from chempistols to a certain amounthttps://www.stygiansoftware.com/wiki/index.php?title=Dexterityopen the horizontal chart I don't remember what score people usually pick, but for 1st level you're good to go

Aww. He was a good punching bag.
>>3058134*Can You Feel My Heart playing in the distance*
>>3058117if you aren't playing on dominating chemical pistols just deal with everything really easily and I wouldn't worry too muchthe biggest problem you will have is your survivability
>>3058138even on dominating, chemical pistols destroy everything save nagas
>>3058143I assume versatility is op because of special crossbow boltsthe idea of needing it seems strange
>>3058146Versatility is OP because acid entrapment counts for deadly snares, which turns all your attacks into crits.
I liked the other punching bag better.
Returning player here, played 2 years ago and did a pure psi build. Forgot what exactly, not that it matters. I want to do a pure guns build now and I settled on full auto shotgun. Would something like pic rel work?

>>3058235Realistically your build will suck ass until 15+ Abuse bear traps, gas grenades and caltrops.
>>3057743>>3057755>I don't play builds like this because they're too easy so no one else should even though it's more content and replayabilityWhat a baiting retard you are.>I have 300 hours in this gameCute that you think that's worth bragging about. Hours don't matter for one's argument anyway.>>3058177Looks good, keep in mind Blitz will pretty much only give you an extra attack every 10 turns though. Don't forget you can get a Tyranny to burst 5 shells and you can use the full damage boost for a Vindicator attack the next turn, or the same turn if you pop Adrenaline/Blitz.>>3058235Other anon has it about right, most builds have some sort of power spike that makes fights much less of a headache, only some like knife can cheese a high quality weapon at level 1 and trivialize the early and mid game. So use traps and gas nades in those hard fights. EMPs for robots, etc.Abuse doors on mobs that can't open them, like most animals. Breaking line of sight with turrets also dunks on them if you have a ranged weapon or enough MP.Craft a taser ASAP, most early fights are only a couple NPCs if not a single one.You can go to junkyard as soon as you start the playthrough, enter the casino, and get a ton of XP and charons off killing that one scrapper dude for a later quest.
>>3058235figuring out the order in which you do quests/areas post-depot A is the most essential component of not having a bad timeembrace cheese in all forms until you get comfortable enough to live without itcrafting, consumables, drugs, traps, throwables, and food are now a lot more than just optional shit so use'em
>>3058252>keep in mind Blitz will pretty much only give you an extra attack every 10 turns thoughan extra 20 ap during your alpha strike can make all the difference for an entire fight
>>3058235Everyone has higher dodge/evade so things that reduce/ignore those are all more useful than on lower difficulties. Incaps or roots or stuns or ambush or leading shot or whatever. Don't forget about them.High evasion also means damage grenades are less effective so you can't rely on them as much either.
>>3058252>Looks good, keep in mind Blitz will pretty much only give you an extra attack every 10 turns thoughDo you mean the cooldown or is there some obscure shit I am not aware of? Either way my main idea for taking blitz was to activate sprint, adrenaline, anything I have to give me extra movement points in a pinch to convert them all to action points. Ideally, that'd let me spray as many shells as I need to get through the encounter. That's all just my theory, I'm only experienced in metathermics and temp manipulation.
>>3056555X key to swap weapons
>>3058293adrenaline doesnt give extra move pointsand yes he means the cooldown
The protectorate isn't sending us their best
>>3058490never understood why styg hid their unique names unless you were on the protectorate's side.
I can play a pistol build on dominating without going versatile and still be fine right
>>3058513Maybe they were initially mooks, and got turned into characters later on
This was painful without endgame gear
I just realized I specced into the wrong featcan i fix this in cheat engine? my last save before is fucking forever ago
>>3058732just add it from the console
>>3058744In Documents\My Games\Underrail create a new file called customConfig.xml and in it put<PropertyCollection xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <Property Name="AllowConsole"> <Value xsi:type="xsd:boolean">true</Value> </Property></PropertyCollection>Then in game it's the ~ (tilde) key just like every other game's console. Type listcommands to see all the commands. there should be one like playeraddperk and then the name of the perk will be like !sprint or something. it will pop up though it's not hard to navigate.
>>3058746yeah, i don't see anything relating to spec points
>>3058766We're talking about a feat that you accidently didn't spec into right? You can add the ability via playergiveSpecialability <skillhere> without the <>'s. It won't appear in your feat list but you'll get the skill to use it.
should I dump agility for more dex / int. planning to play energy pistols with a tiny bit of Psychokinesis just for the stuns
>>3058855Depends on what kind of energy pistols build you want. If you're using high technicalities you want pretty high int because it scales your damage. I did a 3 int energy pistol build once just because I thought the idea of a retard who happened to stumble upon a very advanced weapon and dominate with it was funny.
>Start game with X build>Make it through Depot A>This is fun, I'll try a different build now>Start game with Y build>Make it through Depot A>This is fun, I'll try a different build nowI've only ever actually finished this game once. I'll probably never finish it again.
>>3059004Funny, depot A is when things actually start happeningYou are just going through the first zone over and overThe only game where I kinda did that was DOS2
Are carrier vests actually worth using by themselves? They seem kind of shitty. Seems like the way to go is either leather or metal
>>3059038you mean tactical vestsyes, they're a good generalist armor, and probably the best for psifags due to beetle carapacesyou're right that leather and metal are better in most ways
can I still stealth around on dominating with 3 agility if i've got high enough stealth gear
Damn man it is so hard to make an optimized spear and shield build. >Need armor sloping to reduce penalty (6 int)>Need iron grip, and early too because you can get armor as soon as Junkyard (11 str)>Need at a bare minimum sprint (6 agi)Now my throwing is going to be shit. I was aiming to have spear throw as well just because it'd be nice to have but I don't see any way that is happening between how hard I have to pump strength and needing to get another point in intelligence for armor sloping.
>>3059403Getting stealth bonus with gear is pretty easy if you can craft so I guess it could work against things that are not deathstalkers. There's the stealth field emitter too.Never played with anything like than 6 AGI myself.
Every game I seem to get harlan and his robot. I dont remember the last time I went to the water treatment plant
>>3059583Same.Feels like it's a 90% chance to get him.
>>3059583same here but then every tiime i want to complain about it i remember the water treatment version with the turrets and electrified floorswhat possessed styg to have instakill floor sections that activate in real time while you're still in turnbased combat?that gauntlet room is also pure fucking cancer
>>3059593>floor sections that activate in real timeThey don't, it's just that their turns are very long and you are forced to exist turn based mode after 1 turn.Same thing in the garbage facility and phreaks hideout, if you got a lot of MP you can totally make it in turn based.

Bros, I am making a riot shield spear build and I am torn between 6 intelligence for armor sloping or 5 dex for spear throwing. I can't have both since I'm going all in on strength and con on top of that
>>3059966I built one a long time ago but never played ithttps://underrail.info/build/?HhAGBgcDAwUAwqAAwqAAABRzTE0AaG5QXFkAAAAAdABRJsKCwpXCrwYSwqzClMKqwpPCq0vCtjlVCC_in4QB4qKMA-KzogPitrYD4remBd-_
What level do you start putting points into your other crafting skills
>>3060342Crafting is literally all in the wikiYou shouldn't put 1 point into it unless you want to trial and error everything (which is fine for electronics)
no leveling a stat above 10 challenge?
Is there any point in using daggers?
>>3060886higher crit chance
>>3060889Doesn't seem to be worth lowering the bottom damage range for it, it's only a few %.A serrated knife seems to be superior in every way.But I wonder how this 25% extra damage that passes armor plays out.
>>3060892the 25% makes up for the bottom damage range, plus you'll most likely only be using it on targets who have expose on them making it extremely situational. better just to run kukri and a combat knife
>>3060897>the 25% makes up for the bottom damage rangeBut then again with vile weaponry and taste for blood a serrated knife can stack up way more damage modifiers.Also higher crit damage which gets doubled by critical power.Yeah kukri is a must for spammable expose weakness.
>>3060886I dont know for a fact, but by my math they do the most damage to organic targetsserrated = tfb stacking (but uniques are better)combat = for robotsdagger = everything else
I'm torn between making a shield and spear spartan build or survival instincts knife for my first melee run. Both sound very fun
>>3060935shield and spear is a hard run; it sucks against anything that isnt mechanical meleeknives are a very solid optioneverytime I play a knifer I have a real easy time, but ive never done SI, just 10 agi ones
>>3060935Shield and spear is the worst spear variant and is inferior in every way to a SS can. SI knife on the other hand demolishes the game, especially if you kill Mordre early on for his knife, with a gas nade so SGS doesn't get buttmad that you killed a bigger asshole than even Bret.
>>3059484Spear + shield just kinda sucks sadly. EXTREMELY feat-intensive and doesn't even do that much damage. You absolutely cannot make a psi hybrid out of it either unless you're a 3 Will TM gamer, you just don't have the stats to spare for it. If you want, drop Constitution to 5, put 3 of those points in DX and the last one in IN for armor sloping. That's much more functional.
>>3060935If you want an actually GOOD spear build, go with this. https://underrail.info/build/?AQoIBgUDAwUADwAPDw8AAAAAAA8ADwAPAAAAAAAADyQ5378Main goal is to get tabi boots by the time you do Depot A, run super fucking fast and chuck javelins (crafted spears later once Javelin damage starts to fall off) at shit until they die. Endgame would look something like this:https://underrail.info/build/?Hg4KBgUDAwUAwqAAwqDCoMKgAAAAAAB4Umh1eAAAAAAAAGEkOS_ClRYSwpQ-wqwNGuKfhAHipbwB4rOiA-KzowrfvwIf you want it to be even more fun, drop Dodge and put those points in Intimidation and get Yell. The build is so light on Feats you can basically do anything your stats will support. Traps, sneak, etc. Also the exact numbers on the crafting skills aren't accurate they can be whatever arbitrary amount you'll need to craft your endgame stuff with the workbench in your house. You don't really need much just a good set of Super Steel armor, a bunch of good spears, Mark V nades, NIGHT VISION GOGGLES ARE ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL YOU WILL NEED THESE, and as good an energy shield as you can make. Highlights of the gameplay with this was me kiting all of the Ironheads to death chucking like 15 javelins I had in my inventory at them and running away faster than they could ever catch me, including Balor. The damage it does at longer ranges is fucking absurd and with DX as high as it is you'll have very very good accuracy with your spears. The damage output would be objectively higher than snipers if Throw Spear had no cooldown.
>>3060987Forgot the associated image, also the build needs 6 IN not 5, so deduct that from DX probably.
>>3060935>first melee runPure fist or STR sword.Anything else first is for sissies
does anyone have a chainsaw build? not sure if a normal str sword build would work for it or if i need some special feats
>>3059484What I have found about spear and shield builds are they are OK at best. Certainly fun, though. The issue is, you really gotta time your feats well and you're very dependent upon your gear. I didn't feel like my build had it's sea legs until I finally managed, through sheer RNG, to get riot armor that was exactly at 50% penalty so that I could maximize my resistances and health through juggernaut, but also maintain some mobility. Armor sloping is an absolute must on any shield build imo, because riot armor honestly just fucking sucks and you really need to fluff your resistances up any way you can. Even then, all you can manage to be is still worse than any metal armor set. The shield does help with melee, but in all honesty, its still better to just use metal armor. Yeah shield bash is cool, but dirty kick is better in every way and it doesn't require you to commit to a garbage armor set to use it. I did not finish my spear/shield playthrough but I did have fun, particularly in the arena. I just don't like how feat intensive it is, just to be probably the worst but still viable melee build in the game.
>Only beaten Underrail once>Just found out about the tattoo system with the mutant>Sounds cool>Find out you can't have both the tattoo and psychic bitch Coral in the same game, so if you see Coral just restart if you want a tattoo>Read if you immediately run to the docks at the start of your game and don't see Coral, you're good to go and that means she didn't spawn in your game>Run to docks, don't see her, cool I can get a tattoo>Now 3ish hours in, made it to Junkyard>Coral's retarded cunt ass is at the barAwesome. I really do fucking hate some of the design choices Styg made with this fucking game.

>>3061948you have to delet gypsy
>>3061948Just mod the game. Oh, wait...
>>3061948There is a workaround a lot of use and thats just deleting the gyspy file so she never spawns and booth always spawns.
>>3061948Take matters into your own hands then.
you WILL play a superstitious cave dwelleryou WILL get your palm readyou WILL buy the charmyou WILL kiss it in every fightand you WILL chalk up all your success to psi ghost magic and be happy
>removing content improves the gamewelp
>>3062021If the fucking gypsy at least didn't take away something that actually serves a gameplay purpose I'd be cool with her being in the game. The problem is you have a possibility of getting a random encounter that could give you minor boosts to certain things, or some gypsy who sells you a trinket that is literally worthless. I don't see why it has to be one or the other and not both. And I also don't see why if it does have to be one or the other, Styg couldn't add actual value to the gypsy's trinkets. It could've been very interesting having an item in your offhand actually provide a passive during combat.
>>3062029The "mutually exclusive" content is a terrible idea for a game as long as UR. Guess Styg is going to double down on this gay shit for Infusion.
Someone needs to play throwing knifes build to know my pain.Genocided native.Don't want to DC.
Hammer builds any good? Thinking of making non-psi pure hammer.
>>3062103i've done before and i'm currently doing it a second timeit's fun as fuck, what is this pain you speak of?unless it's the pain of running out of shit constantly in which case yeah alright that part does suckDC will probably involve me al fabet walking to the elevator going down with a couple hundred pounds overweight of throwing knives and i'll still likely run out
>>3062116No. I tried out the best one I know of, one that I can't improve on myself, back in january and I'm forced to admit that they're just not much good. If you're gonna play a hammer, play a hammer wizard.
>>3062128Even something like pic related wouldn't be fine? I'm only playing on normal, probably should've mentioned that. No way in hell I could beat dominating even with the best build, I'm not that good.If using psi is what it takes to make hammers viable, what would you recommend?
>>3062128do you have a hammer wizard build @ 30 like that image?
>>3062132you can play anything on normal and be fine, really>>3062136<
I don't remember how often hacking and lockpicking is used. Am I missing out on a ton of stuff if I don't invest in either? I pretty much always take them iirc, but now I want to invest in dodge and evasion since I never use either.
>>3062180just jump in and try itI did once and it ended up with me developing my favorite character and playstyle
>>3062148thanks, guessing this is a 95% tung armor type build too?
>>3062292yes, highest armor penalty you can getthough id say a shaded tungsten helmet is generally better than an ironhead
The fuck? I didn't know this could spawn not affiliated with the water treatment quest. I got the Harland bot quest and had this spawn outside the place you find Newton.
>>3062340yep, its one of the random treasure itemsnever seen one there though; good for you to find one that early
>>3062116They're good enough but most other weapons that are decently built will have an easier time with the game. Psiless is fine but you'd better get crit chance and use TiChrome.>>3062128>no Expose Weakness just so you can take 10 Con (lol) and 4 Agi (lmao)Absolute 1 Int motioning retard.>>3062132Keep Agi at 7 and Con at 9, get EW.>No way in hell I could beat dominating even with the best buildDominating's difficulty is overrated, it's really mostly about knowing your way around the game and how you can cheese mobs when your build hasn't come online yet.>>3062180Hacking has some bonus stuff that can be nice and you can skip the naked part of JSHQ with it, lockpicking is pretty much an inferior pickpocketing outside of letting you unlock vents with 3 Str. Neither are strictly necessary.
>>3062340Jeez what a early game find.
>>3062354Not sure anyone even buys luxury items early on so it might not be that useful.
>>3062345no, you're an idiotsuper slamming spiked sledges and balors hammer with high crit chance and mega strength dont need EW, especially if they do crowbar + blasting cap in their off handyou could argue the quad naga fight, but with evasion and blast cloth you can just let them blow themselves up if you stay close enough to them, and with your mega damage reduction you'll be fine if they slap you

>>3062404yep, you're a tard>SI>focus stim>bandana>body horror52/55% with balors is no joke
>>3062428Gee guess I never played a sledgehammer before.Silly me.
>>3062363>blasting cap crowbar>when TiC hammer is better, deals more damage, and has less AP costAnd it's not about not needing the feat, it's about convenience. Hammer is one of the least feat intensive weapons in the game. You don't even have energy edges and high Dex for kukri to be able to argue for skipping EW.
>>3062444oh, and infused rat if you decide to forgo the fursuit
>>3062449Please keep teaching me on how to play sledgehammer builds.
>>3062448you just dont need itif you need your ability points elsewhere, giving those up to get 5 int is just a bad idea if you're taking 5 int anyway, or you arent tight on ability scores, then surebut this optimal non-psi hammer build does need themit doesnt need the 4 agi, but dropping that to 3 still only gives you 1 point when you need 2 to get to 5 intno way am I dropping str or con on a build like this>>3062456you clearly need it
>>3062459>you just don't need itYou clearly can't read since I said it was about convenience, not necessity. You don't need ability points anywhere else so bad, especially not for fucking Thick Skull which is incredibly shit.While you're scrambling to get blasting caps early on and only debuffing a single enemy per fight, I can dish out an EW every 4 turns for tanky shits and be not worse off at all for it on my build. I can kill industrial robots without going out of my way and reapplying a consumable on my offweapon every time I exit combat.
>>3062554>especially not for fucking Thick Skull which is incredibly shit.ok, you really are retardedI can't spend time on you
>>3062563>heh I'm so tanky with 10 Con and full tungsten armor and Conditioning and specced Stoicism>NOOOOOO I CAN'T BE STUNNED FOR A SINGLE TURN AGAINST AN OPTIONAL ENEMY NOOOOOOOOOOOI think the only retard here is you buddy.

>>3064005>>3064017Wasn't there some schizo who used to post here explaining why 95% wasn't actually 95% and the rng in the game was fucked up? I remember hearing something about that. I definitely agree with that shit though, I'm doing a hammer playthrough right now and it seems like I miss 95% swings all the fucking time. Fuck Wyatt Pear.

So I want to do a second playthrough but I'm having a hard time with the build autism since Underrail is not that balanced, so I need advice.Should I go for Energy Pistols or Chem. Pistols?Max Dex for -AP or Per for Acc?Which feats up to LVL 10?No Psi/Versatility tho, just focus on one type of weapon
>>3064236>Should I go for Energy Pistols or Chem. Pistols?Seems like a tough choice. Some things resist energy, some chem. Chems are probably tough early against mutants.>Max Dex for -AP or Per for Acc?You get AP from dex for pistols sooo... a little bit Per, but mostly Dex. 8 Per or something.>Which feats up to LVL 10?Look up forums?
>>30639981) the great non-combat oddity hunt to go from lvl 10 -> 16. Usually pickpocket insignia from CC faction members.2) level Electronics, construct custom energy shield with as high block and capacity as possible ASAP.3) Rathound King, but save the burrowers until the energy shield hit just right.
Having fun on my hammer build so far, just wish hammers had more feats. You really only get>Super Slam>Bone Breaker>Pummel>HeavyweightAnd super slam is honestly not even good, even if you push hard for as much health as possible it barely gives you more damage AND it has a cooldown. Bone breaker also isn't very good, if you crit with a hammer you fucking destroy whatever you hit anyway. Heavyweight requires a high armor penalty, which I avoid like the plague on melee builds in general so I honestly can't speak to how good it is (it sounds like shit). Pummel is pretty good.
>>3064484>HeavyweightShould be just +dmg% instead of crit damage>Super SlamShould be passive/constant damage since it's just limited to sledge or a limited time buff but with 40% of your maximum health
>>3064484Im literally running a hammer build now (had one a while ago, dropped it, think it was nimble can) and now I decided to spice it up by going full can + grenades (never really used grenades extensively)It shows, hammer alone has been left behind, aside from pummel making dodge twinks start quakin, you don't see good stuffThen again, I re-started this run for the same reason I started it, to use Yell to the max . Its funny how Brutality also has an icon of a hammer user. The feats should be boosted with a hammer or something idkNothing is more intimidating than a big stick coming to get you
>>3064540>Then again, I re-started this run for the same reason I started it, to use Yell to the maxYell+dodge+evasion are insanely based. I'm doing a zerker hammer build right now and I am barely taking any damage. The only fight that gave me trouble was Wyatt in Depot A, and that's because (A) I fought him at level 8 and (B) he's fucking bullshit and is immune to pretty much everything.
>>3064484>super slam>not much extra damagehe doesnt know!
>>3064378This is the best path imo. I always tried to go to hathor right after I hand in the drills and usually get fucked by the burrowers, but if you come back at 14-15 its a breeze.
>>3064378man i barely make it to 13 before i have to go actually do quests and shit, where are you getting all this extra xp from?usually if i can't beat camp hathor at 13-14 then i consider my build scuffed to hell
>>3063541Hacking, around 100 effective, lockpicking at around 50 effective if you're 3 Str and only want vents and maybe a couple oddities earlier. Any more and you start getting useless loot.>>3064236For chempistols I don't know, but get 10 Dex for epistols because the next breakpoint is at 14 Dex and it's only one extra attack. You're better off getting more damage and crit chance for guaranteed oneshots.

>>3064836Then I'd have to not use an electro-shock hammer. How much is a spiked hammer elevated with super slam? It'd need to be a ton to make that worth it.
>>3064840it applies super slam to each damage instance, so once for the hammer and once for each spike
>>3064785>where are you getting all this extra xp fromAfter Depot A, take trains and boats to the various hubs and there's a shitload of XP just lying around. Probably two levels worth in CC, ~1.5 levels worth in Foundry+mine, ~1 level between the easy Lurker tunnels + Rail Crossing. A lot just searching trashcans and stashes in the abandoned rail tunnels and connecting areas. Stealth makes it a lot easier to avoid battles while exploring, and a little metagame knowledge from previous playthrus goes a long way.
>>3064962Meant to mention you can take a quick jaunt to Expedition and collect a nice chunk of oddities without doing much or any fighting (stealthchads can't stop winning).

Is it possible to spawn yourself items with the console? I'd like to play this again with a build of my choice and be able to play it the way I want right from the start.

My favorite has always been old jonas. Kindred spirit. I have to give props to six; I actually kinda like him, but more than that I like that he causes endless amounts of asspain to whiny tyrannical faggots
>>3066508>kekStyg should've added way more humor like that. Kokoschka was a pretty funny character, but a whole dialogue tree feels like kicking a dead horse. But yeah, the eastern slav district in core city was a nice touch. We should've been to hunt down that no good svetlana.
>>3066514Jonas is a special snowflake. If he were a quirky old fart bullshitting you about going into DC, that'd be fine.
>>3066517ah, I thought you were being genuine
>>3066518The writing always disappoints because joke characters suddenly have deadpan reactions like dude bursting into treats. Styg is too obsessed with his character "mattering" in the overarching story. It's a silly game. It shouldn't be serious. Take notes from old fallouts. And especially, don't try to shoehorn "scary" writing as if your audience is 15.

Remember >him, grandpa?Shit like this is why Underrail doesn't read like a deadpan story, but it still pretends to be deadpan. It reads like a slavic version of A Fistful of Dollars translated into English by a character from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.If Underrail was ever made into a film, it would've ended up as an Anime. The writing is that corny is inconsistent.
>>3066515I really enjoyed that little bit of the dropzone, same. Also there is a svetlana, she's in the coretech questline iirc. One of the thugs u might have to kill to get the device back or whatever, it's been a while I forget. Not sure if it's the same one tho. Would've been funny if there was an actual questline w/ helping out ljubostanka.
>>3066539It's two old friends with contrasting personalities meeting again, you soulless freak
>>3066539Idk personally to me its at a level where it's so bad its actually good. it's hard to describe but i'll take this corny shit every day over most modern day dialogue.
>>3066589It's not forced is the thing. Modern dialogue suffers from being so fucking fake. Don't you remember saying a lot of stupid shit throughout your life and meeting a lot of different people? Underrail dialogue is good because it's diverse and fits the characters you encounter. Six and Tanner are soulless alien freaks and it reflects in their dialogue. Gorsky is a hardass who believe in might makes right (it does), which reflects in his dialogue. Dude is a brilliant stoner and it reflects in his dialogue.
>>3066587Watch Lonesome Dove if you want to see well portrayed camaraderie between old friends. This kind of writing is inconsistent and forced. The phrases don't fit a bunch of misfits that lack an education (unless we are watching British telly about a bunch of quirky gangsters).
What difficulty do y'all play on? I used to only play normal which got boring in the late game, so then I did 2 successful dominating runs, but now I feel like it's just too much work so I'm back to playing on normal. I kinda wish dominating didn't lock off content.

Energy pistols are fun, I wish I tried them sooner
>>3071139I told you bre
Anyone got any high con builds they could recommend me? Constitution and dodge/evasion are pretty much the only things I haven't touched in this game so far.
>>3071455Berserker hammerfag, high CON/AGI/STR with stealth, and dodgevasion
>>3071490Is survival instincts even worth it with that much fucking health and damage resistance? How often are you ever under 30% health?
>>3071500not often, but if you ARE in trouble its really nice
>ascension/lessening burden>descent to center
>>3071463I am considering this for a Balor's run, but with Balor you have to stack so much STR there might not be enough points to spread around for AGI, etc. Considering a SS nimblecan to split the difference and have some defense/mobility plus megadamage from the hammer.That and I'm torn between doing a janky hoplite build with riot shields and stuff. The idea of ironically chucking laser-tipped spears at natives is arousing.
>>3071661just do hammer wizardtrust me, its the best way to play a hammer except maybe tm

I got to Depot A and immediately got filtered. Do you guys have any retardproof builds?
>>3071919stealth AR with TM is hard to fuck up
>>3071951How would I go about building that and what type of gear would I want?
>>3072012Won't 3 con make your character really squishy? What order would I go for feats and skills?
>>3072023Only if you get hit, which you shouldnt be with this build.Feats are in order. Keep putting points into guns/throwing/stealth/locks/hacks/pickpocket/persuasion/intimidate until they are maxed out. Level TM as far as necessary to cast your early game spells, then start into crafting (I would probably focus on getting a taser, then a good rifle for depot A). Evasion and then the remaining TM points should come last in that order. If you dump hacking it will be simpler to assign points.
What's the best gear for a SMG build?
>>3071919Tincan AR. DO NOT listen to the anon telling you 3 con is retard proof. The entire point of con is it gives you a cushion for making mistakes. New players make tons of mistakes, thus 3 con isn't good for you.I'd roll with something like this:>7 str, 3 dex, 3 agi, 10 con, 10 per, 3 will, 3 intAlternatively, you could drop perception down to 8 and boost intelligence to 5 if you want to craft early and often. It isn't necessary, though.Split further points between perception and get your con up to 12 for bodybuilding for even more health. >S tier feats you want ASAPAimed shot, thick skull, opportunist, full-auto, suppressive fire, concentrated fire, commando.Just know that with this build you're going to be extremely immobile, but you'll deal very good damage and will be near unkillable. Prioritize killing knife users, their attacks can fuck up your strength and make your accuracy horrible. Gun users, which are about 70% of the enemy you'll fight in this game, will barely even be able to scratch you. Use tungsten steel armor and either a hornet AR or huszar for extra crit chance. You'll notice I didn't mention psi. Don't use that shit, it'll lower your health. Once again, anyone telling you health doesn't matter in this game is retarded. You, especially as a new player, want as much hp as possible. Also, get stealth clothing and carry it around with you. Build/buy a cloaking device. You can sneak around when needed with a small investment in stealth + good gear buffing your numbers up. Certain quests require stealth, and stealth in general is just useful sometimes.
>>3072164The only thing I encountered with this build is that -The absoulte worst enemy to fight are knife fags/carnifex who abuse crippling strike on you. your chance to hit will be like 10% and can't move.
>>3072252That's when you grenade your own feet. But yeah, crippling strike enemies are an absolute cunt to fight as any tincan build.
>>3072164Thanks for the advice. When it comes to depot A are grenades and molotovs the best strategy? I barely did any damage to the mutants and dogs when using guns and would often miss.
>>3072449Grenades in general are the answer to pretty much any question in Underrail. With that tincan AR build, you'll sleepwalk through Depot A. Like I said, the only enemy type you need to be worried about are enemies with crippling strike (usually knife users). It's honestly hilarious lumbering through Depot A as a can. The main thing that gives people trouble is when the mutants glue you to the floor, which completely immobilizes you and opens your anus for them to swarm you. As a tincan, you had no mobility to begin with so what're you worried about it for? And shit, PLEASE swarm me. I'll fucking hose the lot of those muties down with full-auto, which is only going to get more accurate the closer they get. And if all else fails, I'll drop my own grenade on my own feet and laugh as it nukes everything around me and I basically take no damage because of my insane mechanical damage resistance and massive health pool.
>>3072471you're forgetting the gobs of acid damage that your puny 5 DT doesnt quite blockbut then again I did it with a non-psi hammercan on dom once, though traps were involved

>>3073240Hammer WizardPsiless nimble canPsiless agile berserkerPsiless tanky berserker
>>3073240hammer wizard is the only one imo
>>3073281Wrong, psilless agile zerk is arguably more fun than hammer wizard, only because you can actually move, have dodgevasion and use stealth, while still being fairly tanky
>>3073286but less fun than other weapons that do that, due to the inherent problems with hammersunlike hammer wizard which bypasses themHW has so much synergy and gets to be FUCK YOU tanky
>>3073291Yeah but at some point being a tin can gets boring after a while.HW is better but zerk is more fun.
>>3073294you just said it; "it gets boring after a while"so does anything if you keep doing itif I never played either, I would say HW was more fun
>>3073296>so does anything if you keep doing itNo because mobility is objetively more fun than being a tin can.
>>3073240I've played them all, Zerker is the most fun you can have with a hammer. The combination of a big health pool and dodge/evasion make you pretty darn survivable. Just be ready to sacrifice lockpicking and hacking. You need good gear to make the build really click so crafting is a must. Dodge/evasion need to be pumped as well. You'll be really point-starved on a Zerker build.
I don't know why, but in this game specifically I have a very hard time committing to a build. In any other RPG, I just pick what sounds fun and roll with it. I have 400 hours in this game and have only finished it once because I always wind up restarting to try something else out once whatever build I'm playing finally starts to come together.

>>3073858Using a tacvest in general is not advisable unless you're using a lot of psi and want the beetle carapace. Look at the specific leather and infused leather properties on the wiki. But just from you saying you're high speed, you should definitely look into hopper or siphoner leather.
>>3073944psi or not, a>sturdy>laminated/ss sheet>psibeetle>blacktacvest is a pretty good generalist armor
>>3073948Being a generalist in general is not advisable in Underrail. Can you get away with it? Sure. I'm not going to be a build autist and lecture you though, if you have fun with it then cool. I love the sprite for tacvests, but they just aren't good enough for my severe autism to justify using them. The utility leather offers is great, and the protection of metal beats out tac vests in every way. On a side note, I really hope Styg corrects stuff like this in Infusion. There are a lot of things that are just, for lack of a better word, redundant. Like shotguns just being worse ARs, tacvests and riot armor being too bleh compared to everything else, temporal manipulation being a "fuck it why not?" skill that every build uses because there is literally no reason not to.
Stay bloodthirsty, my friends.
Fucked around with SD to make a wallpaper out of the title screen since there's next to no fanart
how painful would it be to play oddity mode without lockpicking or hacking

>>3074608>mfw faggots still getting utterly mindbroken by TM dipping
>>3074609Man, I've tried to like machetes/swords. I think my main problem with them is their feats are too spread out. Strength is nice for swords, but you gotta have dex for flurry and int if a must for expose weakness. Then you got ripper which is nice to have but requires will investment, and its a melee build so you at a bare minimum need sprint. I just don't like how unfocused the builds can wind up.
>>3074608Based and correct.
Anyone ever make an infused rathound leather suit greater than 11% crit? Been playing for years and can't make one greater or find rathound leather higher than 52.
>>3074741Fists are just nature's hammers.
>>3074736You can get it to 12 with 180 quality supersteel and if you get lucky with booth, 13 is only possible with leatherer feat so not worth it.
>>3074795Cool, always wondered about that
Any weebs lurking? How's my sword build looking? And before you start, 10 con is non-negotiable for me.
>>3074935don't get survival skills and we're good
>>3074988Survival instincts you mean? I don't intend on being a glass cannon if that's what you're thinking. I want to be Jason Voorhees basically. My main worry is I won't do enough damage.

threads about to die, dumping a bit
>>3063998Definitely Harthor, but maybe that’s because I’m a melee fag. The weapon is always great quality for just after depot A and the rat king armor is also great.
