Gameplay Tips
« on: May 17, 2015, 06:36:18 pm »
A general thread for gameplay tips, just let us know what game your talking about.

So I'll start with some tips for the game I've most recently been playing

Red Orchestra 2 Multiplayer
Okay first, if your new take Rifleman so you learn the game. They are the easiest to learn the game with, and it lets the more experienced players play the more vital roles.

Learn the difference between a German and a Russian sprinting. A Russian will have his weapon in both of his hands, whereas a German will carry it with one.

Crouch run is useful. It will lower your visibility and how big a target you are. It also can help keep cover between you and the guy gunning for you.

cover is useful, so use it! The cover mechanic is very useful, though there are some situations where manually placing yourself is better.

Don't just stay in one place. You will get shot.

RESUPPLY THE MACHINE GUNNERS DAMNIT! Seriously, this is one of my major gripes, because so many players don't refill a machine gunners ammo.

Help protect the tank. If you see an enemy soldier rush for it gun him down immediately, he is most likely an engineer going for an AT grenade kill.



And that's what I got for now.

A few very important tips that applies to quite a few games.

1. Don't die.
2. If you do die, try not to do so again.
3. Failing that, keep trying to not die.
4. #3 is especially important if you have a limited number of respawns
5. #1 is super important if playing a rogue-like

What if you're playing Squishy the Suicidal Pig?

This applies to any semi serious shooter
1: YOU ARE NOT FUCKING RAMBO SO STOP TRYING TO BE RAMBO!
2: Do not pull the pin on your grenade and then proceed NOT to throw it
3: If you are planting any kind of high explosive TELL YOUR TEAM
4: Aim for the chest and stomach, easier to hit then the head and a couple of bullets will generally kill
5: If you are moving in front of a machine gun or other rapidly firing weapon tell the operator

Check the ceiling, bastard devs hide shit there. Remember to strafe and circle strafe. Always go for more health if you are bad, more speed if you're good. Conserve consumables and one shots. Massive gunfights are the best solution. Always get the high ground. Shoot any weird and out of place objects.

Another decent one for most online FPS games is to speed up your reaction times, if you walk around a corner and someone is suddenly there then 90% of the time whoever has the faster reactions (excusing any lag) will be the one to come out of it.

As someone who proclaims to be the master of Fallout New Vegas (I have only played hard core playthroughs, I really like having to eat and drink okay). And most of these apply to hard core (FUCKING REALLY HARD CORE IS A BAD WORD!?) anyway.

1. Don't be a Skyrim player and "save" your chems for a more urgent time. If you're going into any battle with more then 4 enemies, always buff yourself, I can't tell you how many times a Med-X, Psycho, with a Whiskey chaser saved me from having to spam F5 24/7. This ain't like normal where you can just ignore drugs and move on, in hard core mode (on very hard) you'll need all the help you can get, your power armor can only help so much.

2. Learn how to plant mines and set up a "camp" when you're battling. If you see Legion or NCR assassin's, find a good covered spot and run to it, toss some mines on your way up there to start dealing damage. Then begin to pick them off.

3. Karma literally means nothing in New Vegas, don't be afraid to steal what you need to. You may feel like **** stealing from your favorite NPC or Faction, but if you're broken, battered, and nearly out of ammo don't be afraid to stoop down to becoming a more 'passive' raider.

4. Stealthboys and the cover of night are your friend.

5. If you have Nevada Skies installed, make sure you get a tent mod so you don't die in the Radiation Storms.

Also one tip I have for Arma III Atlas life.

If someone helps you rob a gasstation, promise him some cash so he'll cooperate. Once you rob it, don't give him any money, he'll rat you out to the cops or kill you; just put a bullet in his head, grab his shit and then run for it.

the thing i hate most about most games is the tendency to make hard mode simply by nerfing the damage you do. like, hard mode should make you and the enemies do WAY more damage, not turn them into sponges that take 23 pistol rounds to the head unarmored.

Tips for DUST: Survival Simulator
1. Careful where you tread: Be sure to use what scopes/binoculars you have to scout ahead, I also recommend either Project Nevada or A mod that make binoculars useful.
2. Aim for the right arm: When using V.A.T.S. aim for the right arm, when you cripple it you should make the enemy drop their weapon.
3. Deathclaws are dįcks: When facing deathclaws first, good luck, second, aim. For. The. Legs. I can't stess this enough, when you cripple a deathclaw's legs they slow down drastically.
4. Get some sort of backpack: In DUST your carry weight is 60 to 90 get some sort of backpack, That why I recomend getting Spice of Life for more backpacks.
5. Get some sort of shotgun: Shotguns are extremly deadly in DUST, they can kill you in one or more shots. So if you sneak behind someone and have your own, it's likely he won't live.
6. Perception is useful: It's so you can see if someone's freindly or not.
7. Find a home: Either find one of the safe houses or the Prospecter's den.
8. Find Westside, Westside is one of the few settlements left. You can trade with either the Co-Op or with Miguel.

Self proclaimed master of Fallout New Vegas? I'll have you know I would challenge you for that title, your hÓrdcore (why is that blocked tho?) settings mean nothing to me, I play with the most realistic settings I can possibly manage, a single shot from almost anything means near instant death and I don't wear power armour because it's ugly.

In all seriousness though, pretty much everything AJ said is entirely accurate as hell, although one slight suggestion would be if you really want to survive then build towards a 'sniper' build and always carry a scoped rifle, a shotgun and some kind of automatic weapon with really high dps for those "oh shýt" moments. Also yes on Spice of Life, as someone who goes purely for aesthetics with my characters and couldn't care less about DT, despite my stupidly hard settings, the backpacks are brilliant, because where the **** else are you carrying a thousand stimpacks, and some of the clothing is definately useful, although the majority of it is designed for aesthetics over practicality.

.50 Anti Material rifle with explosive shells and stealth attacks will win you most fights.

Payday 2 tips
1: listen to allies, if they ask for ammo or health and it's what your carrying then put it down.
2: LISTEN TO THE DAMN HOST! Seriously that's just a good thing to do.
3: If your playing melt down put the heavy bags in the car, then carry stuff like coke by foot. There's a lot of ways to get to the objective, and on foot is perfectly viable for light items.
4: Pay attention to your allies ammo counters at the bottom of the screen when your carrying ammo, it's seriously beneficial if you put down an ammo bag in a good spot, and it's usually helpful if you do it before someone needs ammo.

I may haven't beaten the game (due to me not wanting the journey to be over), I have started up 28 playthroughs that always end 2 quests before the battle of the dam. And all of those playthroughs were on hardc0re mode.

Let me add another tip onto your list:

Tip 5: Just because the dude is lowranked and a newb doesn't mean to automatically kick them or to talk down to them, I was a level 3 and I was doing a better job of not getting spotted than my fucking ret@rded level 2-54's that just blamed me even though I was sitting by the car.


Probably going to hurt some feelings here but screw it: Playing Payday 2 isn't that hard... at all, most of the difficulty comes from actually having common sense and awareness at what the fuck is going on in the game world. You'll make mistakes and others will make mistakes, its to be expected. BUT WHEN I SPOT A FUCKING CAMERA AND LITERALLY SCREAM INTO THE MIC NOT TO RUN INTO THAT FUCKING ROOM! THEN DON'T FUCKING DO IT!

I was playing the Car Heist with two great players, and another player aptly named "Markiplier Animatronic" (what the fuck did I expect, no offense Wilson) the dude was dumber than a bag of cow crap, he never listened, and he blamed me for everything. We tell you not to kill the guards outside because we don't need to, this fucker says that we do, runs up and melee's them. Its like fucking seriously.

On top of that when we did finally make it out he didn't know how to get into the car and drive it, even though we told him at the start of the fucking match. We all ended up leaving, host included. So many restarts, so many close calls to end up with nothing but an achievement and me despising that fucking heist.

Other then that I must ask why we don't all play Payday 2 together, I finally got some good shit and you rank up pretty quickly when you play with people that actually know what they're doing.

Okay Payday 2 and how to treat low levels time

Do not talk down to them, even the rank ones. Just be nice, and tell them what to do. If it's a stealth heist I might ask you to wait at X location to run bags(which is my usual job since I can't stealth for shit apparently), if it's loud I'll tell you to stick with someone. Just cause I'm at infamous doesn't mean I can suddenly go 'I know better then you so do what I tell you." it means I've put enough time into the game to achieve that rank.

Playing Payday 2 is easy, on normal through hard. At very hard it gets a bit more complicated, Overkill is fun because it is a challenge without going overboard, and Death Wish...well be prepared for a frustrating two hours for a single heist. On very hard there's a chance to see a Dozer, and on Overkill it's pretty much garunteed if your going loud that you'll face a dozer. so to sum up my frustration with some low ranked players who have never fought one before DON'T RUN AT THE FUCKING THING THINKING IT'S A FUCKING TAZER! Seriously, don't. I'll stay out of cover adn get shot by the damn thing because, guess what? I've got a sniper class weapon that will pierce his armor! Not a fucking assault rifle.
That's not to say not to shoot the damn thing, but don't just sit out of cover when the thing is staring you in the face.

All in all, I treat low levels more as equals then noobs because I have been there and it's hard when the high rankers are yelling at you and blaming shit on you. I'm respectful, I'll treat you as my equal, just don't start insulting me, the other teammates, or start cheating, because then I kick you. My favorite match was when I dropped into a match full of low levels and helped them through a couple of heists(on one we were all, skill wise, equals since we were doing stealth, I just had a stealth build with more points in it), and I enjoyed it because we chatted, we joked, but we didn't blame eachother when we screwed up, we admitted what was our fault and didn't try to blame each other.


Also, I don't know. I mean I've only been trying to get an organized match together for the past two weeks.
