    Oh, so there is shit at the top of the shaft? I played a solo map, dug to the top by hand, saw the stone, and gave up.

    There is not. 100% just a driller drilling around for 2 hours and then circling down the shaft to finish it off.

    Pubbed this weeks EDD and the last stage is haz 5.5 shield disruption mini mules + Doretta with the absolute most troll drop pod I've ever seen (it lands super high up in a very inaccessible room)

    I had to drop my no dwarf left behind policy and make a dash to get out the only one alive

    We failed at the last stage and I just did not have the energy for the 2nd attempt.

    Honestly once you finish stage 2 (and get that weapon overclock), it's yolo time

    I have never one played this game solo. I've finished a mission solo before, but I always queue muliplayer.

    This game has the best pug experience of any multiplayer game I've ever played.

    The joy of multiplayer is jumping into a game as scout, seeing 3 players downed, zooming around ressing each one of them and then watching the little rascals die again.

    They gave the scout a hookshot, but he really just needs apron strings.

    ...and of course, as always, Kill Hitler.

    I've only played on game multi, and I got super lost and it was very embarrassing, so I didn't do anything else multi. From what I played singleplayer, it was pretty swell.

    The only real rule of multiplayer is dear god don't call the drop pod or pop a boss without a ready check. People might be wanting to do an event they held off for a later/safer time.

    If anyone wants to coop this weekend and ease into multi I am glad to do so. It's not as bad as it seems unless things have ridiculously changed and you can usually have a fun challenge and win on hazard rank 3.

    It is very very hard to screw up a multiplayer session. Like, just follow people around and let other people start events if you're super worried and want to get the hang of things. Even if you're not doing any objectives yourself, just being near the other people and covering them while they do objective stuff is good enough. That said, unless you're playing on 4/5 or 5/5 difficulty, the game is incredibly casual and you really shouldn't have to worry about stuff.

    I'd also say probably stick to gunner if you're worried about role stuff since they have the least group responsibility. Scout you generally should be bouncing around mining stuff high up and popping flares for group visibility, engineer should be making platforms for the scout who's bouncing around high up, as well as just in general to help get around, driller is pretty much as accessible as gunner, but if there are dirt sections that need to be drilled, you're generally the person to do that (though that's also pretty obvious if you're sticking with the group, they'll generally ping it or whatever). Gunner has the least responsibility, just killing stuff and occasionally use the wire traversal thing if you guys need to cross a chasm or are moving between elevations. But even then, there's generally a lot of overlap between abilities and there are multiple ways to do things. Like, you could rope up to something high up or drill up there, you can use engineer platforms to get the team across a chasm or drill a path on a side wall over. Probably the biggest utility thing is the scout flares, but even then, you can get by with regular flares and they mostly help with visibility in the ceiling area where the scout is messing around anyway.

    I was reading some multi-player tips today and, holy shit, I forgot friendly fire is a thing.

    Dunno what the first round in those waters would've been like without that reminder but, yeah, probably more than one person screaming WTF/OMG/GTFO while I'm all:

    I haven't found driller easy to learn, personally. Primaries are all pretty limited range, and focus less on direct damage and more on DoTs and CC. Also has less in the way of "oh shit" buttons than the other classes.

    I never really found range to be an issue since pretty much everything comes to you. And the driller pistol is amazing for long range stuff.

    Macterra, spitters, and menaces can be problems. You're generally not gonna be lacking in glyhids to spray, yeah, but it's still nice to be able to engage them from further away from their teeth.

    The pistol is great for it. Good damage, accuracy, and fire rate.

    God aggressive venting is such a good overclock. Better DPS, makes the weapon a bit more reliable, some decent crowd control, a little bit of ammo efficiency, and it's even a bit stylish. Make it hard to play with anything else once you're using to popping a fear AoE every two seconds.

    I was hopeful that the 'new equipment' for dealing with the infected spikes would be part of your loadout to start and would only pop out if you hit the right number (like 5 for dropping resupply pods) but - alas. Has to be called down and either the spray or clean up gun drop to the ground when you flip to something in your loadout or - in the case of solo players - the laser pointer to order BOSCO to suck up the foam.

    Also ran into a problem on one spike where I could not find the last blister to save my life and had to Abort. Hopeful that's a one-off and not a thing going forward.

    Edit: looks to be a one off - other runs have gone okay.
