    SMG + Marksman Rifle is civilization I will fight you.

    Also, Pulse is easily the best skill. To the point where I will switch to it if I don't see anyone else on my squad using it.

    Yeah the national guard pack was sweet looking, just a big hefty pack. Then again it also had like 80 armor, so I used it for a good long time.

    I do like the game warns you you have old gear on, though I'm like "Well drop me a better one mother fucker!"

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    Eeyup, I'm the same way. The reason why I still use a level 5 sidearm is because the game hasn't dropped anything that'll beat 3000+ damage potential per shot (seriously, the Defiler sidearm shotgun is disgusting).

    Hoping that there are other sidearm shotguns, it'd be dumb if it was actually an exclusive thing to the Gold Edition(or is it Season Pass?)

    What's weird is I got the gold edition, didn't get that shotgun!

    I do like how side arms having infinite ammo, lead them to being your back up piece instead of like some super powerful melee attack. If anything melee gets your ass killed. Only thing its good for is finishing downed agents up close in the dark zone.

    There are generic double barrel shotgun sidearms, I got a blue level 14 one as a random drop in the DZ.

    I like sidearms. I need a stronger one. JUST POW POW POW POW POW POW.

    I wonder if the +N damage perk stacks with the +100% damage to targets under 30% life... have to check.

    I'm just glad we get a new thread. Someone will need to throw it up soon. This operation can be called......... The Manhatten Project

    Edit: Also, as a note: I grabbed all of the clothing items from the reward vendor and tried on the different cosmetic sets... They're neat, but going that route completely removes the fun of finding new, individual cosmetic items, so... I ended up going back to non-themed, inconsistent pieces of clothing after a little while.

    Edit2: Also, is there any way to delete cosmetic items, so that the list doesn't become an overlong mess?

    I do like how pistols all have the extra damage to enemies almost dead perk, helps augment their place in your kit as the finisher.

    I wonder if that bonus is active on players in the DZ when they are downed?

    1911 pistol for me, stopping power, reload, and distance. Plus I get to feel like Liam Neeson.

    Maybe I don't get the DZ, but this seems like complete armageddon even on the lowest level. Waiting for the heli with like 6 people, one tore me up, and then they aaaaall became red while I bleed out. And I get pinged for dropping the item :/

    The JUSTICE BONER is firm, and demands satiation. I'm waiting for the eventual Rogue Group who make it their job to kill everyone else in the DZ - and then forming the PA squad that hunts them to the ends of the earth.

    wow 3 fights in the DZ im already dz level 7,
    I think Ubisoft paid attention to when Beta testers said for more npcs to be in the DZ, because theres loads of them now, and there more challenging than they were,

    My one disappointment is that even the bushiest beard is still reasonably tame.

    I want a foot long survivor man beard. I'm living out here scrounging on the streets, I ain't got time to shave!

    I was annoyed that both of the last two options are poorly trimmed with neckbeards. I wanted a mid length, well trimmed beard.

    Dinged 30.

    I still have three zones worth of side activities untouched.

    The last few missions in this were just excellent. Now onto finishing out my wings and heading into the DZ.

    So the clothes shop also sells gun skin mods, which are actual mods that you can put into your stash and not like general appearance items which are shared over all accounts.

    This was the one in my store today (you have to buy it in order to able to see it):

    I need that, it looks more or less what I was going for, the only gun skin I have is that ugly ass Uplay one Spray Stribes - Urban Snow which I see you also have.

    Also the talent for head shot pulses? Fucking amaze balls, its not even head shot kills, its just head shots, so you can ping a dude in the face and then find his bros.

    So thats what it does, I just got that before going to bed yesterday and wasnt sure what they meant by "Pulse"

    I played around with the Support Medkit Box...? I dont know what its name is, upgraded it to give both health and ammo at the same time, it also has a huge area it affects, so now I can stay in one place and both selfheal and have infinite ammo.

    The normal Medkit skill looks underwhelming compared, I didnt get any upgrades for it yet though.

    I liked the normal heal better, it recharges faster and gives you a damage resist and boost. Where as I used the ammo skill in times square and didn't feel I was getting any bullets.

    I figured it would probably become pretty useful later on, I was comparing a non upgraded Medkit to the upgraded Medkit box thing so not surprising.

    I find myself running low on ammo sometimes, so thats a cool thing from the medkit box, I dont remember having troubles with it giving ammo though.

    I think my issue with the ammo thing is I believe its just for your primary which I have my shotgun in, but where I run out of bullets is my marksman rifle.

    I was also doing time square with 4 people, so running out of bullets is kind of to be expected.

    The support medkit with ammo is actually pretty great. It doesn't give you ammo, but you will not use any ammo when you reload while in it's radius.

    It is great because it greatly decreases skill cooldown for everyone in the radius as well, besides healing.

    And yes, the M60 works like an AR, it's pretty easy to keep stable, and the armor damage bonus is always welcome.

    Fsmith and I are at level 21, we want to get to 24 and then hit up the DZ, you should add me on Uplay: if you want to join us. We've been doing pretty well in the DZ, but we got ganked hard in DZ03 by a couple of dedicated lv 24 rogues.

    This is kind of hilarious. The One is None talent has a chance to not consume ammo on a headshot. In this game, it counts each pellet as a shot. Which means a shotgun with this talent is pretty beasty when played at close range. I wonder if it also falls into a lot of traps like in other games where it applies damage boosts onto each pellet, rather than dividing amongst them.

    Here's something I was wondering: If a lower level friend creates a mission and then you join halfway with a higher level, does it alter the levels going forward? Haven't seen anywhere whether levels are set in stone at creation of the instance or not.

    My brother started a mission on hard and came up against the first wave of enemies and they were his level.

    Then I joined and the enemy level jumped up to mine.

    So yeah, the levels get altered on the fly based on current team levels.

    It's true that you do get blueprints for finishing all tasks, you can see them as a reward for completing the 'return to XX' missions. I got blue quality blueprints when I completed all tasks in the <level 6 areas.
