    One mission a day. That is my mantra. Of course I have to play until I have the gold.

    My mantra was "fuck the story, do random missions with people." I savored the game just as slowly.

    Man, just met some random person online and we did Volcano three times in a row getting 90%+ each time.

    I think we got it down rather good now.

    I really hope the overwhelming response gets Double fine to go back and make a fully blown trenched game with multiple modes, difficulties, ranks. Kudos for them for nailing this game, I just hope they can go back and build upon it.

    This game is a blast and worth every penny. The only two complaints I have are the choppiness and I want more. More damnit!

    For good times engineering, I run around in the Honeychurch III rocking the shock/magnet grenade lancher. The grenade launcher is amzing. The stun lasts several seconds, it tracks and it's good versus ground and air. Grenades are medium range at best though, so you have to get pretty aggressive and/or attack from above.

    Sniper turrets ruin tubes even at level one, and there are some fun places to tuck them away. Two or three in decent spots usually puts you at the top of the board for emplacement kills.

    I don't know about confirmed but I sure as hell seem to be getting random stuff as I progress further through the story. Two Razors of the Gods on back to back levels? Also co-op teammates getting weapons I don't have yet.

    My hint for getting gold on Volcano solo...
    Sniper Turrets
    Kill Jacobs
    SNIPER TURRETS
    Add Dampeners in hidden locations
    MOOOOORE SNIPER TURRETS

    On another note, Sniper Turrets seem to be the only turrets that benefits more from dropping a bunch of Level 1s than upgrading. Once you get 5+ online, the map is basically won (outside of those damn Jacobs).

    That kind of micromanaging seems excessive, and doesn't even exist in games like Defense Grid. I like the idea of a bad guy that makes players charge into them like animals, away from the base.

    Orange'd for incorrectness.

    A single sniper turret won't stop an aerial wave, but that's why you put down a shitload of them. I don't even bother with flak turrets on Volcano (solo) anymore, because the snipers murder air if placed well. A couple monos might make it close enough to get a shot off, but then they get popped before any real damage is done.

    Well, it's more of a hassle in singleplayer when they attack from multiple directions and you basically have to rush from point to point and let your turrets deal with the rest

    I meant what I said.

    And you know what else? I think there should be additional aerial types that attack emplacements and Trenches, too. Whaddya think about that? *chews cigar*

    Hmm, I prefer using razors of the gods. Slightly less damage but gets that shred+ and flak+. I wonder what the damage modifier is for flak+.

    Enemies killed by shred weapons drop more scrap.
    Flak does more than listed damage to air targets
    Explosive means that weapon fires grenades instead of normal projectiles (like the "rosie")
    Pierce can go through targets and hit the ones behind them
    MIRV drops bomblets as the main projectile flies
    Magnet is attracted to targets
    Shock -- no clue
    Stun - stuns target
    Deathsplosion - killed targets explode and damage nearby enemies
    Slow - slows target
    Cluster - primary detonation sends off secondary explosions

    What am I missing.

    A gun with shred on it causes scrap to fall off a tube with each hit. Very useful for getting additional scrap!

    edit: Shock seems to also stun the target. I love shock mines.

    This game seems best with two or three people total, sorta crowded with four. Mainly because the Tubes rarely come from more than two directions at once. Plus I never get enough scrap to build a decent setup until like the final round.

    So many basic loadouts I haven't even tried yet; barely touched artillery, grenade launchers or broadcasters so far. Got some experimenting to do.

    Are there any shotguns that create extra scrap?
