Also yes, accuracy is a big deal, at least with my choices of weapons.

My cqb is a police m4 (its bright orange, big mag, eotech etc (you can even see the sight in the optic). My long range is a SCAR-H with one of those canadian 3.4x optics. Also suppressed.

I did have a bit in the darkzone earlier where like 8 dudes were fighting over an extract. I popped 2-3 heads with the scar H from way off and booked it. Lol.

Also, you can shoot pressurized tanks on peoples backs (flamethrower guys) to make them explode. Ive also shot grenades out of guys hands/off their belts and seen em boom.

Did my first trip into the dark zone. It's a bit weird, I was in a team & we crossed some guys with red & skull on them. So we shot them & suddenly we were rogue? I interpreted it as shooting at rogues, which I had done before and doesn't mark you, but suddenly our entire team was rogue?

Controls feel very console-y and there's a lot bullethosing going on, but other than that feels decent. I look forward to the release.

>>57312
>Also the game defaults to medium graphics settings, just be warned.

My PC is getting old, so i'm doing about 30-60 fps ingame atm, with medium+ settings.
I intend to buy a new comp this year, but when will depend on actual need, since atm it still played all games pretty damn nicely on fairly high quality settings (until The Division that is). I suspect the game is still getting performance tweaks too, so might not even be necessary to upgrade.

Yeah my pc as a tad old too, I was just going through the options to see what was up and found it on medium. Did the "huh, looked decent on medium" thing.

As far as the roguing, One of your party might have accidentally shot/killed a player who wasnt red skulled. Because Ive killed quite a lot of red skulls and havent gone rogue because of it.

Chicks dig SCARs. And so do I. Current setup is a SCAR-L primary and SCAR-H marksman for my secondary. Currently 8/12 on my level/DZ rank and about to get back into it for more.

The interface is a little awkward at times. The grenade/buff wheel needs fine tuning, and I'm tired of searching a pack or drawer and having an item dump out on the ground and it not telling me "Water full" or "Energy bar full" or whatever. Also, when coming across crates/boxes/chests in the DZ that require a key or specific DZ rank, I'd just like a little context window to pop up over it when I get into interface rank and have it say "Dark Zone rank 1305815081 required" or whatever. Having absolutely nothing (except the occasional hint popup) happen in that situation FEELS glitchy, even if it is working as intended.

Also, it's hilarious when you're fighting a rogue and you throw a grenade to flush him out of cover, and two non hostiles run in at the last minute to try and gank him.

Because consoles.

Questions about the weapons:
Do weapons
1. of the same caliber deal the same amount of damage?
2. have selectable firemodes?
3. have correct Magazine/Belt sizes?
>> No. 57335 ID: 82a3e8
>>57334
>1. of the same caliber deal the same amount of damage?
Its an RPG so no. A level 6 m4 will do more damage than a level 3 m4 for instance.

>2. have selectable firemodes?
From what few guns I used (M4, ak, scar H, m249, shotgun) no.

>3. have correct Magazine/Belt sizes?
This is an RPG, so some weapon modifications increase magazine/belt size. Other than that, yes.
>> No. 57336 ID: 01b665
Over the entire beta I only got into a good death squad once. We where marching around the DZ killing dudes for hours.

Ever since I get into games with faggots that only care about gear in a fucking beta where its gonna get deleted anyways. Or they don't wanna stick together.

FUCK
>> No. 57337 ID: bbadd8
>>57334
>1. of the same caliber deal the same amount of damage?

No. It depends on level, quality & luck.

>2. have selectable firemodes?

You could say that there are 4 fire modes:
1) Blind fire from cover.
2) Hipfire (without aiming) while standing or moving.
3) Aimed fire (irons)
4) Aimed fire optics (if any)

As far as I can tell, that's it.

>3. have correct Magazine/Belt sizes?

No. The game doesn't reflect real mag sizes. Most of the time it's close (M249 with 100 round belt, M4 with 30 round mag, FAL with 20 round mag). These "base" stats can be modified with items. Will sometimes give like +25% capacity. And the 30 round mag suddenly looks like a 60 round surefire while only holding 37 rounds.
You also get stuff like the M1A/M14 which looks like it has a 20 rounder in it, but only actually has 10 rounds per mag unmodded.


By far the thing that annoys me most is the fact everything is a huge bullet sponge. There's fairly little finesse. I prefer a (few) headshot(s) & you're down. I understand that's not easy to balance in a cover based shooter, but I suspect it'll be the reason why I'll stop playing the game after a while.
That and the console-y setup of everything.
>> No. 57338 ID: 82a3e8
>>57337
I was pleasantly surprised by how not bad the bullet spongey part was. I was expecting 3-4 mags to kill every dude.

I got into a fight over some DZ gear with other agents and killed 3 with about 11-14 shots total with my M1A (blue qual). It took about 2-3 headshots per target to kill them, so not much compared to say.... Borderlands etc.

And what really sucks about that is Colonial Marines had the makings of being a great game. Even the finished product is okay but with a bit more work it could have been a truly excellent game. And we need a good Colonial Marines game, a game just blasting xenos. A game with the same care and love given to it that Alien Isolation had. That game isn't my cup of teat (I hate stealth games) and from what I've seen the "alien is invincible" is taken to stupid heights but you can tell the game had people working on it who actually loved what they were doing, loved the franchise they were working with.

Gearbox you can tell didn't give a damn about ACM. They just wanted a game they could use to get bottlecaps from, both from the publishers and poor suckers buying it. They already had the money either way, didn't matter if they made a broken ass game that looked pretty ugly, they already got that sweet sweet Sonic money and they knew people were going to buy the game just because of the name.

But with a little effort they could have made a decent game, some more effort a truly excellent game.

But noooooooooo the fuckers had to use the money and resources on some piece of shit cell shaded garbage that is for hipsters and fat people.

That´s why i wrote "Because consoles".
Ubisoft announced over 1 year ago that they will tune down the graphics, so console players aren´t disadvantaged because of weaker hardware.
Same shit like they did with Watch Dogs.

And since i was hoping that the firearms in this game would be a bit authentic, but they aren´t, as confirmed in this thread, i´ll give it a pass.
I´m fine with that you have to hit an enemy a few times before he goes down, but 10rds in a 20rds modeled mag, level based dmg, no selectable firemodes, i´m tired of this. (no i wasn´t expecting a Arma/Insurgency MMO)

It only took me 3-4 hits (head and chest) to kill dudes with my M1A/M14.

>no i wasn´t expecting a Arma/Insurgency MMO)
I dunno bro, from your issues with the division I think thats exactly what you are looking for.

RPGs inherently take a bit for things/people to die. I understand that people dont like that, but if its an MMO or an RPG, its gonna be that way.

Until one of you lazy shits becomes independently wealthy, makes a game company, and then proceeds to create a arma/insurgency mmo.

Also I wish all the cool kids left consoles and played PC, so games would stop being limited by "well we gotta sell it to consoles too, so make it look shitty plox"

-and one 3P shooter i´ve played many years ago, i cannot remember the name, goddamnit.

Personally, I'd have preferred a CounterStrike meets SpecOps The Line style game set in The Division world. That'd be tits.
From the beta I've played, it greatly lacks finesse. I like my headshots to count for something.

None of those are even close to MMORPGs.

The issue with mmorpgs and being super frail like that (like irl) is that what is the point of playing it for 400+ hours to get the best gear at the top level if a level 1 dude with a slingshot can kill you with one head shot. I mean the answer is "thats realistic". Sure. But realism does not always equal fun.

>I like my headshots to count for something.
My M1A headshots were like 2.5x more than my base damage, which was to say, A LOT.


The two camps ive seen about the division basically boil down to
A) I like it, its a decent RPG and I like the gun play and the world
B) I wish it was DAYZ set in this world.

This game is already full of respawns which are quicker than CounterStrike's, Sneaky. Not to mention that higher level gear could give you better resistance to a wide variety of damage types.

And at least it would make things like sniping worthwhile. In the DZ during beta, you'd need to coordinate with several people to have a chance at killing someone by sniping (unless he was simultaneously being ganked) due to headshots with sniper rifles doing shit damage. They would just run off while shrugging off multiple hits.

It just feels so horrendously wrong. In Borderlands you can say it's bulletspongy because there's shields, futuristic armor, mutants, etc. In this game, you have hoodrats in a sweater soaking up a full mag to the head and still continue to approach you. With a blue M&P9, a single shot to the head at point blank range would do 130 dmg. Out of over 3000HP or something with gear of equal level. You could dump the entire mag into his head at point blank & he still wouldn't be anywhere close to dead (even without using medkits or heal feats).

That's just FUBAR, not to mention horrendously lazy design to try and balance a game that way. And certainly unworthy of the Tom Clancy name (not that that means much). Totally not what I had expected from previous vids etc.

PS: People should stop using "it's an MMO" or "it's an RPG" as an excuse for this btw. There's plenty of games of both types which are utterly ruthless when it comes to damage dealing and player deaths.

Those are both not MMOs, or even close to multiplayer. Id agree they are brutal (and others are as well).

But brutal "realistic" mmorpgs are few and far between. Mortal is a decent example in that when you die your shit gets looted. However its not instadeath from an attack unless you just started and are fighting a high level guy.

Theres really no MMORPG games that come close to what you are looking for.

Dont get me wrong, Id love an mmorpg that was how you describe.

>Those are both not MMOs, or even close to multiplayer.

I said MMO or RPG. Not MMORPG. :)
I don't actually find The Division worth of being called an RPG so far, but that's a different discussion, I guess.

I guess you could look at death in games like Day-Z. It's kinda pormadeath, but still doesn't require you to dump several mags into people for it to happen.
What I propose is far far far less harsh.

>Theres really no MMORPG games that come close to what you are looking for.
>Dont get me wrong, Id love an mmorpg that was how you describe.

That's the point. I was hoping that The Division would be just that.

Also, I'm not talking about one shot kills even. Slightly less damage than most counterstrike weapons + abilities would still give you some chance of survival.

They did add an additional mission for PVE, which is kinda fun.

Better luck with loot this time around. DZ is largely the same, with some more weapons.

You can now have tiny turrets, but watch the fuck out. My team has been exploiting them like hell in the DZ... Whenever someone drops a turret & you're teamed up, shoot it once with a pistol and stand next to it until the guy who dropped it gets tagged as rogue. Then hunt his ass down.

okay, i played the beta, since it was free huehue.
It´s clearly not what i was expecting (Tactical 3P MMO with atuhentic weapons). But somehow, i really like this game. The atmosphere is just great, visuals, details and so on. Lots to explore. A Mix of Last of Us, Defiance and R6 Vegas, kinda.

Many ppl complain about the AI on the forums, but in the DZ i like it how they lay down suppressing fire, while others try to flank you (sometimes).

On the xboxone there is a setting in Settings that allows you to turn up the sharpness from default 50% which looks dull to 100% which makes everything alot crisper and if you turn up your tv sharpness by 5% it's like super high res textures, looks better than E3.

I had a lot of fun and I am buying this game for sure on the xbone. I had a 4 person squad and we owned the DZ. No one could touch us, we were going head to head against 2 groups of 4 and we still kicked ass. I made about 10k DZ coins in like an hour.

Going by the two beta's, it'll be fun enough to play for a while, but once you hit the level cap and get near top gear there'll be very little left to keep you playing.

I'm going to agree with this, Borderlands is a garbage franchise. You know it's bad when Telltale's Borderlands series was the best game of the franchise.

After playing the open beta the Division is a definite not buy for me at this time, as time goes on, mechanics are fixed, brooklyn and such are added and the game is cheaper, that might change, but from what I'm seeing now it leaves alot to be desired
I bought into the hype and bought seige for $40 bucks on sale, it's a solid game, but I'm a little dissappointed with just 5vs5 no respawn, as good as it can be it's heavily dependent on teamwork to have fun, more so than even a game like Squad/PR and it clearly wasn't worth it's MSRP of $60.

I'm holding out with guarded caution with what Ubi can do with the open world Ghost Recon, esp. if such a thing turns out to be mod friendly.

What I find hilarious that morality is entirely absent from the game. You'd think it's pretty crucial to the setting, but you're allowed to shoot anyone carrying a gun, as long as he's not JTF or Division.
I mean, fine with looting punks or people taking hostages, but why the hell is it fine to cap the ass of some random people standing around while carrying guns?
It's dangerously close to broadcasting the whole "only the government should have guns". :)

This past weekend whilst playing the beta with a friend he picked up a mosin nagant sniper that was absolutely demolishing everything he pointed it at.

What I hadnt noticed last beta that I noticed this time is when it gets all overcast and snowy your character model will have snow on his head and shoulders and stuff. Which is pretty nifty.

The Moist Nuggets were fine for early endgame in the beta. But everything after that they get greatly overshadowed by other guns. Even the SCAR-H was seriously outclassed due to its slow rate of fire. Sure, it had nice headshot crits, but it's low capacity and slow, making it shit at most PVP.

>I know they exist, my post was to mean they dont feel particularly useful, especially in the dark zone. Most fights with NPCs or otherwise are at standoff distances, where the shotguns are pretty crap as far as damage goes.

Semi-auto magfed shotties are useful and great damage dealers up close & personal. They're totally useless outside of 10 meters of so though.
They are useful when:
1) You're soloing NPCs (be it the sports store or doing the garage extraction solo for example), if the enemy closes in on you, you have to mag dump your rifle to get them down quick enough. On the other hand, a few shots of the saiga 12 in their fucking face up close & they're down for the count. Especially rushers are staggered when shot in the face, buying you precious time. Remember the huge armored cleaner with the bigass flamethrower in the north east of the DZ? Soften him up with one mag of your AR15 and drop him on his ass with your saiga without retreating.
2) You're in an alley fighting another player, he goes to reload his primary, you switch your AR15 to your Saiga 12 and strafe past his cover, you magdump into his head at point blank, no way he survives. There's a lot of PVP encounters that end up being up close & personal. For example the subway or that one rogue camping spot with the ladder right next to the checkpoint. And that's where a Saiga 12 really hurts. Come close? Get put the fuck down.

Of course, your spec needs to be up to snuff. A good quality Saiga 12, with a quickfeed mag and an optic that extends optimal range is usually the easiest way to get started off.
By the end of the beta, I did well over 6500 DPS with my Liberator AR15. But my secondary was a much "weaker" DPS Saiga 12, but it left the Liberator in the dust in close encounters. It used a lot less ammo (per mag) to bring down NPCs and totally butchered players up close.

>Shield ability helps with that.

I've literally seen two guys use the shield in endgame DZ in the open beta. It was somewhat popular in the closed beta, but with the new talents/skills that became available the heal+stickybomb were the way to go for PVP.

Only idiots used the sentry (since it's so easy to exploit and lead to you being tagged rogue) and only a few rare guys used the shield.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when the game gets released.

PS: It was absolutely tarded that the game had unconverted Saiga 12s. I hope they add some properly converted ones too.
>> No. 57507 ID: 82a3e8
>>57505
I would bet almost no one used the shield because in the last beta we didnt have access to the little turret so everyone was wanting to try that.

I had a friend with me the entire time in this past beta. He was heal specced and I was shield + smg + shotgun. I basically would work my way up into their faces, dump with pistols while my friend flanked, or id swap to my shotty (was a pump at the time) and obliterate things when I got close, when I ran out id swap to my smg and just mag dump into their face.

It was really rare for my friend and I to get killed in dmz, I got downed a lot, but he would usually rescue me in time.

At the underground safehouse at Hudson(?), you're forced to use a computer (as well as the NPC) and that computer needs to be used from the front. You couldn't do it with people blocking it. So I did indeed have to wait for one guy to clear out before I could use it.

Im ok with it. Aim about just below throat pull trigger at least 2 head shots. Its basically the opposite of the m4. The M4 is like short/mid to mid range full auto. The FAL is like mid to mod/long. and 3 round. So its not wonderful close range, but longer range its loads better than the m4 (Im using the same mods on it as I did the m4 so its not a mod thing)

Its a place holder until I get myself a legit marksman rifle (like a scar-h, etc).

No sawed off yet, just the double barrel which was loads of fun.

Ive since swapped my FAL for a SCAR-L. Because the scar L had better damage all around and holy shit, like you say its a rail gun. Full auto at some distance and every round hits. Just cleave my way through dark zones pretty quick.

I like that they added NPC to extractions from time to time. Died a few times because I was braced for players and got a wave of purps or yellows. Sucked. Lol.

One time I saved a dude at an extract from npcs. The extract showed up and we went to extract our gear and he killed me. So I respawned and hunted him down and he was already not a rogue (about 30 seconds).

Killed his ass anyway.

Well, most "lug shit around" missions can be finished with nothing but headshotting fuckers with your pistol without dropping your load along the way. With the sawed-off you can't.

But it's a great last ditch weapon against rushing idiots in normal circumstances.

I'm using a SCAR-L with muzzle brake. The horizontal control shit is amazing if you like spraying shit down. I'm sad I haven't come across a SAW or something with decent damage to use it on.

I got raped, multiple times. :'(

I was DZ level 22 at the time. There was a manhunt going on against two guys, so I joined in. The problem was however that anytime I got close, one of the guys would come towards me, I shoot at him, he seemingly lagjumps and shoots once or twice with his vector (not even a decent burst) & that's it, I'm dead.

The guy was only DZ level 33, so while that's a big gap to my level 22, it does seem somewhat suspect that he was able to do this to me 4 times in a row (each time seemingly a shot or two after a freeze/lagjump) and seemed to be constantly doing it to others as well.

Hack? Laggy connection? Shitty netcode? Who knows.
>> No. 57604 ID: 82a3e8
>>57603
Probably some sort of exploit/hack. Ive found the netcode to be pretty damn good (aside from when you lag a bit and it takes a bit for hits to register) but ive only had that happen to npcs.

BTW: I think they have buffed sniper rifles from the beta. My little green mosin nagant gets 15k damage head shots, and close to 20k damage crit head shots.

The few people ive killed in the DZ with it have been one head shot and they are down.

Could be anything. Happened to my buddies and me when doing missions. Suddenly one of my mates warped through a room, and he was like "Dafuq?".

It's also possible he got uber gear from before the phoenix credit nerf. He was over DZ level 30, so potentially he already bought gear before the nerf. If that's the case, he was an asshole to go rogue against newbs in DZ01 & DZ02.

Sniper rifles got a nice boost. The SCAR-H, Mk20, M1A SOCOM and M14 suddenly became useful too.

At the moment, my gas piston AR is my biggest damage dealer (at 80000DPS without going too hard into the firearms skill). Problem is that it takes a mag in the face of an NPC to kill him in the DZ and that burns through ammo so fast you need to constantly go resupply.
Still, a lot better than my M60 when i just hit lvl30. It took down the final boss so fast that I didn't bother using the turrets. But in the DZ it took a 100 round belt to the face of an NPC to get him down.

Take it all, your buddies can't see your drops & vice versa.

The only shared loot is in PVP or if you get killed by NPCs in the DZ while carrying loot. Those deaths will likely drop "public" loot, which is first come, first served.
>> No. 57612 ID: ce706d
Going rogue is so totally fucking different from what it was in the beta. The beta was packed and going rogue (let alone getting manhunt) meant you'd get swarmed with guys.

Now, a decent team can start ganking down south in DZ01 and then just move north while killing everyone you encounter up to DZ05, let your timer expire & start all over again. It's a fucking marvelous feeling to own an area like that... Unless there's a team against you that knows what its doing, they stand very little chance if you keep moving inbetween NPCs and pick your targets.

Sadly though, it's NOT WORTH IT at all from a game progression POV. I lived through 3 manhunts and a few non-manhunt rogue sessions today and I leveled up a grand total of one DZ level (having had a penalty for having wiped once). For killing 18 players, I got as much DZ money as I'd get from the manhunt counter as you'd expect to get from killing 5 level30 NPC hoodrats.

So it's great fun, but totally worthless. You risk to lose a lot more than what you'd gain. This means very few people will actually bother going rogue, unless they're teamed up. If you could tell from the exterior of a bag if it held yellow drops or not, now then you'd see a whole lot more ganking.

As far as builds go, my team mates have:
1) Tank build (gotta have one, he has over 110k HP at DZ level 24, so imagine someone with a high DZ level)
2) Elec build (the dude can oneshot most players with his stickybomb, it's amazing)

So those are certainly viable.

While leveling at release, all shared instances lagged so badly it was almost unplayable. So I basically solo'ed to level 30 since instanced missions with other players was just too painful.

I dropped through the world once.
I've been "you are outside of the playing area" a few times, without dropping through the world as well. Usually when opening crates etc. You are then teleported to a safe zone.

Today, I got lucky. For 1h30, I received 2% heal per second because one of my armor's perks remained active though the requisite for it was long gone. It's supposed to only activate when "under a status effect" (like on fire, dazed, deaf, blind,...).
The nice thing is that although it's only 2% is that it also activated the "autoheal" as if you're out of combat and fill up the active portion of the health bar. Since it'd tick over into the next healthbar as well, you always get healed to full all the time.
I was more or less invincible, especially since I've got 15% heal on kill. So I was fighting 6 lvl 32 enemies without having to take cover. I didn't abuse this for PVP, but this is ALMOST as bad as the "invisible in PVP" bug from the beta.

I also met a group of level 1 NPC cleaners in the DZ. One bullet per NPC & they were dead. They gave 20 XP each. Funny.
They obviously were supposed to be level 31. Someone made a typo, me thinks.

Ive been fortunate to avoid the majority of bugs in my time playing. I have fallen through the world a handful of times (its not an MMO until you fall through the world, of course) and earlier today i got stuck in the being revived position doing the Lexington Event Center on challenge mode.

Other than that its been pretty good. There has been some lag and other issues, but with how early in release it is I am not terribly surprised. Overall it has been playing pretty smoothly.

Back to gameplay, my god tanking in this game is hilariously fun. Stack armor and then prio. stam over electronics and you are pretty invulnerable. Your DPS is pretty shit, but you can sit there and tank nades with your shield while also shield bashing shotgunners/rushers.

Shield HP is capped in the endgame, so it's a dead end for a build. Sure, it's OK at first, but if you want to progress endgame, you'll want to switch builds.

Armorbased damage reducation is also capped btw. So don't foolishly keep stacking it on. You'll need to be full yellow to come close to the cap though.

That's normal, don't worry. Just do as many daily missions as possible and level in DZ01 & DZ02. Typical newbie run would be:
Enter the DZ from one of the south western checkpoints.
Clear the thugs at the metro entrance.
Clear the metro and head north.
Clear the sports store.
Clear the rooftop LZ & everything around it.
(optionally clear the cleaner hideout further down)
Re-arm at the safe house.
Clear the Library.
Repeat in the other direction & keep looping back & forth.

Once that gets easy, you can go hunt for better loot up north, but for XP it doesn't matter. Higher level NPCs only give a tiny bit more XP and are significantly harder to kill. I wouldn't worry about DZ04 or DZ05 unless you're grouped with people with decent gear & that know what they're doing.

Going rogue is NOT useful when trying to gain DZ levels btw. The rewards from killing players are too damn slim to matter. It's only necessary to keep you interested in the game and prevent you from getting bored as fuck.

>However my newer purple mosin does like 60k head shot damage. So I tend to do most with that. I need a new assault rifle, but ive got the best I can craft/find/buy until I get dz 30.

The best yellow loot at the start is gained from phoenix credits (mostly crafted from schematics), not DZ stuff. Those are gained from missions and from killing special named bosses.

Also, there's no reason to restrict yourself to two long guns & a handgun. Carry more in your inventory, since you'll likely be most contrained by ammo at the start due to the enemies being bullet sponges.
I walk around using my SMG or LMG for normal NPCs, but switch to my higher DPS (but ammo munching) AR15 for dangerous situations and PVP.
Together the SMG & LMG ammo provide me with sufficient breathing room not to have to constantly run to the damn safe house or checkpoints to rearm.

The constant heal thing happened again today. Took an hour or so before the bug triggered. Shit's handy, but seriously fucked balance-wise. It resets when you leave the DZ to clear your stash.

Good starting stuff would be the Vector SMG (limited range, low mag cap) or the Liberator (nice intermediate) for instance. I think they're around 150 phoenix credits each for the crafting schematics. If you're DZ level 15, you probably have more than that.

With crafting, you might need to try a few times to get the best gun out of it. I got lucky and got a 6660 dmg per shot (@850RPM) Liberator on first craft.

>Does the phoenix credit stuff require dz 30 to use? Cause I have like... 38 credits I think.

No, Phoenix credits are spent in your home base, top floor. Next to the recalibration station.
Around 150 for most weapon blue prints, 80 or less for mods & such.

You get phoenix credits for doing daily missions (50 or so per mission?), challenges, or just plain killing named bosses in the DZ (you get very few for that though).

DZ level 30 stuff you can buy with DZ credits will most likely already be useless by the time you hit 30. Until DZ level 50, you'll mostly be relying on phoenix credits.

>I came up on a group of 4 or 5 guys in the dz and helped heal a few and helped one up. I proceeded to follow them and was marveling at them tearing through yellow NPCs like they were level 1.

Yup, if you have semi decent gear AND are in a group? You make fairly short work of anything in the lower DZs.

That's also the reason 4 decent geared guys grouped up and going rogue currently steamroll the DZ. The newbies don't stand a chance and the better geared guys don't tend to be able to catch up due to the fact rogues now tend to remain mobile.

>>57632
>Yeah im mostly stam firearms. Ive got like.. 50k hp I think. Some decent armor from some of my better items.

That's still low, of course. The only builds I know of in with such low HP is acceptable is the elec support build for grouped gameplay. It'll get better with better purples and obviously yellows.

The only way to progress more quickly in the DZ is to group & steam roll NPCs.

I wonder if the game is playable from euroland so I can play a bit with you guys. :)

I know, I still have a few greens and stuff too lol. Hodge podge of anything I find that is better than what I had on previous goes. I dont really have a coherent build either. Mostly just keeping myself alive at the moment.

Greens... Yeah, that's not DZ material, unless you can group with someone who doesn't mind that you tag along.
Best do missions until you're full purple with a few blues.

Now I'm DZ40, but progress is slow since the guys I started partying with earlier pretty much quit playing (can't blame 'em).

I've now got a Midas as a random drop from Cannibal. It's certainly better than the Vector.

Did some of the daily missions and finished out my story mission.

Swapped my sniper to a pretty pimp SMG (Steyr aug is somehow an smg), still carry the sniper if I need to.

But holy shit this SMG (and my new build with better gear) chews through dark zone and tougher mobs pretty damn fast.

I bought a major upgrade or two with some phoenix credits and Im back up to 78 creds. Tomorrows dailies/darkzoning will probably get me up to a yellow phoenix credit gun/blueprint. I also got the Damascus pistol somewhere along the way that is pretty awesome looks cool too. Damascus weave look with gold accents. Im also up to dz 20. So all is going decently well.

Running a purple Kriss as my main right now and a blue M1A. Finally cleared the story and every bit of side mission, encounter, and piece of intel. DZ is hard solo. Both due to toughness of the AI and dealing with groups targeting a lone wolf. Even 1 v 1 if they decide to take the rogue status and shoot first especially while you're hanging something up on a heli, they'll probably win.

Trying to group for PVE in the DZ is weird. No one wants to group, but dozens run around doing PVE.
Do they not understand it means more xp & loot from killing enemies faster and sharing loot crates? I've got pretty damn noice gear now. It's win-win.

Fucking weird.

>My M249 Saw has a box mag of 166 and I can carry 1000+ rounds now...it's bullet hose time!

I use low RPM weapons for grinding, like the Midas or an M60. Means you have more kills per re-supply. With a high RPM high DPS weapon like the Liberator on hand to hose things down when shit gets dangerous.

I really with there were more 'good' endgame highend LMGs with low RPM & high DMG. First thing I'll do when I hit DZ50 is buy LMG crafting crap and see if any of it is worthwhile.
>> No. 57669 ID: 71cd0c
I'm half a level away of DZ level 50. I'll guy a bunch of schematics and see what that does for me. I'm pretty curious if it was worth the effort. Probably not.
After that, there'll be no goal left, so I wonder how long I'll keep playing after this.

Well new end game content is coming out soonish iirc.

Im up to DZ rank 34 or so. Got some decent items.

Im just wishing the current meta would change because its basically SMG/M1A is the only combo worth having.

I wish shotguns didnt suck ballsack late game.

>Bastards nerfed it, because reasons....

They also nerfed my Midas. But that was overpowered anyway.
The Liberator is a damn shame though.

Anyway, I hit DZ50 & bought every schematic in the entire DZ. DZ currency isn't exactly rare. I still have 350k DZ credits left after buying everything.
Problem is yellow Division Tech of course, which is needed for every yellow craft. So I crafted one of each type & 3 guns, before running out of division tech. Didn't really get me the increase I hopes for.
I doubt I'll buy the expansions too btw. Don't want to encourage them in making this type of graphically beautiful but otherwise shoddy game.

Anyone know if you can upgrade green & blue division tech to yellow division tech somehow? My crafting bench doesn't have that option.
>> No. 57676 ID: 82a3e8
>>57675
If you look at the crafting materials section of the crafting bench you can upgrade green to blue and blue to yellow etc. Itll say Electronics (Dark Zone).

I think. I havent fucked with the division tech much.

Im not buying expansions yet either, but the high end content coming out is free iirc.

Of course, but I need Division Tech Blue to Division Tech Yellow.
All the ones I've got are Division Tech to normal crafting materials.

Hmm, dunno.

Update: Im now DZ 43 or 44 or so. Using Pakhan and a yellow aug I found in a chest (which upgraded my vector).

Got a couple of yellow items, but need to finish getting new gear.

PvP stuff: Things I hate: People who never drop below a certain health before healing like they can chain use heals. Also, People who go rogue, and have a non rogue group hiding near them that jumps you when you try to off the rogue. What I hate more is when the two type of people are working together.
>> No. 57682 ID: be2f51

Uhhhmmm Division Tech can only be crafted to normal crafting Materials, i guess. So blue Div Tech to blue tools etc.

>> No. 57749 ID: d3cd3e

Well, some weapons have a low ammo cap (which can be raised with gear "+x% ammo") or are only worth it when using it at a high rate of fire (thus burning through ammo). So there's some legit reasons to run out of ammo.
The solution is simple: Just carry an extra type of weapon and switch your weapons out when necessary.

Anyhow, I quit playing this game a while ago after hitting DZ50 and buying all schematics. The endgame wasn't worth the effort, and quite frankly that was obvious to me from the start. It's only the fact that I love post-apoc shit that kept me playing.

And to ruin stuff.
Taken from the patch notes, The Division now turns fully into a Grindfest.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Increased costs for converting crafting materials and crafting High-End items:
10 Standard (Green) materials instead of 5 to craft 1 Specialized (Blue) material
15 Specialized (Blue) materials instead of 5 to craft 1 High-End (Gold) material
10 High-End (Gold) materials instead of 8 to craft 1 lvl 31 High-End (Gold) item
Changed deconstruction yield of Standard (Green) and High-End (Gold) items:
Deconstructing a Standard (Green) item yields 1 Standard material instead of 2
Deconstructing a High-End (Gold) item yields 1 High-End material instead of 2
