Granted, I only started playing today, but I've not got that many packs in the store with me credits. I'm probably just not playing well enough to keep getting lots of cash.
I've just been playing at bronze for now, since, as I mentioned before, I'm a bit shite. And maybe had a bit of bad luck with the last couple of packs I got because I've not had any rockets for a while.
Well, I'm infiltrator, so I've been getting the hang of sniping and cloaking to hack/turn on/turn off and heal. Since I'm not playing with mates, I might just have got unlucky that time the Banshee went through all of us, because we didn't act well as a team. Last night I played another match where we all used fire to take it down, and nary a rocket in sight - I went for mine briefly, but we seemed to be knocking it out quickly enough, so I left well alone.
One thing I'm learning from it so far is the importance of using cloak to fall back quickly. I've seen people finish a wave as the last person standing on bronze, but I figure if a banshee showed up, it would be a different matter. So I try to keep myself alive to act as decent support to the soldiers. I usually cock that up when I move to a forward position because I don't think I'm pulling my weight, and suddenly find myself isolated and surrounded. I do like playing the infiltrator, though. If I couldn't do this, I'd probably have to go for some brawling class with shotgun and shit loads of health.
Like I said, I've not done online multiplayer for a very long time (like Quake 2 long time), and even if I had, I'm just not that good a gamer to have decent twitch reflexes.
As you can see, I'm really selling meself as a potential teammate.
The ideal 'My first character" is undoubtedly engineer. A drone slows down the pressure building against you, even better with other engineers, there are 4 principle builds for drones.
Long life rocket - best used on high power(lots of overload and incinerate. low weapon builds(just an smg). The drone will be dumped at your feet and
Replaced if dead.
Bomber - Best with assault rifle or snipers highest life, span lowest hp (you want it to die) the explosion will cause much damage on secondary targets. 2 kinds of valid bomber are the focus(single target) and AoE stunner(multi target), both bomb the same but I find the multiple target bomber generates more attention.
Mainly I hit enemies in cover with it, it appears behind them, stuns them out cover then other enemies assault it, it explodes and they all die. All the while you are shooting them.
I agree with helio. that was my first character, and it did wonders. Now im fooling around with hand to hand combat infiltrators.
Too bad I dont have time for MP at the moment.
Just don't miss :-D
I wouldn't mind trying out engineer, but I'll stick with infiltrator for now because I'm enjoying getting the hang of it. Like I said, I like the support role it provides.
I have upgraded my cloak to the point that I get a free action cloaked now, and if I could get a shotgun, I'd totally switch over, because I presume I could effectively combine with the cryo charge up close. Maybe I should weigh up my current heavy pistol versus my smg to see how effective that could be.
Get the disciple shotgun. It has almost no impact on your power charge (20% or so) and "pauses" hit targets. Very much worth it.
After a crash, Origin insists I don't exist anymore. Hm.
No games for me until I get it sorted. Or maybe I don't exist. Is KTaillefer still on people's friend's list?
I occasionally write things on this website. You can read these things by clicking this thing:
I managed to get it working again, hurrah. It crashed mid-chat and I felt bad all night.
Sorry for this brief intermission.
Ahh. so thats where you went :D
the cocktail robots festival is here, though: roboexotica.com
I'm game for some co-op. I've been playing public Bronze but I'm looking to move into Silver. Arcturus_D on Origin
