    I've been having a rough time with this game so far. First I got stuck in the tutorial after I finished it, then I just couldn't join any games yesterday.

    Got into my first match today and I got teamed up with....no one. Is that common? I got stomped by a team shortly after landing. Was fun watching them look around for my non-existent teammates though.

    I've only had it happen a handful of times. Every so often a friend and I will end up just the two of us. I'd guess 10% at most that it has happened.

    @pablo_price - Do feel free to add me on Origin. Vamenn is my user. I'm not a skilled player by any means but my friends and I that I play with are friendly at least ! =). If we're playing and have room, we'd love for you to join.
    And if I AM good at anything, it's rez'ing or getting downed friends to a dropship =).

    For all the frustration of getting matched with people who immediately disappear, this game actually has its hooks in me deep.

    If anyone wants to add me, I'm LoonRancid in game, would love to have some reliable people to pop in with now and again. Is there some group or anything we've got? Not really sure how that bit works.

    I got a pretty greasy team wipe with a wingman yesterday, it slaps in the early game but you've got to hit your shots and better if they're crits.

    Yeah just like in TF, if you can hit your crits with it the Wingman will decimate people. If you don't... Well it won't go as well. Four headshots should kill anyone unless you give them a chance to heal. And if they have taken any damage at all you will probably get it done in 3 shots.

    MewnFare used to be a Heroes of the Storm streamer. He's pretty well known for being salty and complaining constantly. At least, that's how he was for HotS. Maybe a different game has a different impact on his demeanor.

    Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.

    What's the rule of thumb for when it's better to aim down sights? Does it actually tighten your recoil, or is it only for zoom?

    Ads and it charges and tightens spread if you have the purple choke for it.

    You can hold down the trigger to charge it up, similar to a Fusion Rifle in Destiny

    I didn't realize until I saw a teammate doing it when I died

    Oh you need a specific attachment?

    Oh man, my rando teammates died at 5 minutes and 8 minutes, and I couldn't recover either of their bodies. I survived another 17 minutes until the penultimate circle, doing 1300 damage and getting 2 kills along the way. Died with 2 other squads remaining, a duo and a trio. Mirage is awesome.

    i may be wrong but i don't think you hold the trigger, just aim down the sights and the gun glows more.

    Man, I just dropped with my squad into the Airfield while it had the blue High Tier circle, landed in a trio of supply crates next to a dropship. All four things had zero guns in them, just armor and meds and ammo. And then we had to fight a 2v3, essentially, where I'm climbing up on buildings and dropkicking people because I can't shoot them, lol.

    On the one hand, it was stupid as shit. On the other hand, dropkicking people and knocking them down is awesome.

    Pretty much every named area on the map will have some loot. There are tiers to each area and some naturally yield better loot. The ones I know of to have high tier loot are Thunderdome, Relay, and Hydrodam. And of course, the random areas would be the blue zone which is the 'Hot Zone' and the Supply Ship that flies around and eventually lands on the map.

    There's also supply drops that fall within the circle each time it shrinks, those can have epic yellow-tier guns, gear and healing items.

    I like how the supply drops can land in some pretty wild places. High on exposed cliffs, tucked inside building walls; they're not always out in the open. It is fun to hunt them down.

    I kill the squad who was on him and grab his key card to revive...only for him to rage quit while I'm about to use the terminal right next to us.

    I don't get people sometimes.

    I've been surprised at how often nobody drops in the hot zone. Especially if it's at the far end of the island, people are rarely willing to wait that long to drop, so you'll often have the place to yourself. Same for supply drops, so many people are afraid to go near them that they're often uncontested.

    Once you get the precision choke, when you are ADS you'll see a circle slowly converge which will basically focus all the pellets into a single point or close to it. It takes about 2 seconds to get to max convergence and the nice thing is it takes about 1 second to reset so you can maintain convergence by ADS, then sprinting/moving a little, and then ADSing again to keep charge. Really nice for giving the peacekeeper a "slug" fire that lets it perform even at mid/long distances and I don't think it's super overpowered or anything thanks to the charge time.

    I haven't tested the Triple take with it but I assume the precision choke focuses all 3 shots into a single one, which makes it much work better as a sniper rifle

    Mozambique works great in the earlier game, to take down others quickly with no shields. Late game, you should swap it out absolutely. There are better shotguns

    It's got good hipfire and high alpha, so some peek-shooting with the speed of hipfire strafing is good for getting that little bit of extra oomph out of it.

    Say, that one upgrade that gives the peacekeeper a tighter spread and a charged shot. That goes on the triple tap too, doesn't it? Does it give the triple tap a charged shot as well?

    So I might join in on this

    Quick question, tho: I preferred PUBG to Fortnite's gameplay, which felt just gummy and light and inconsequential. How does this stack up to a non-cheater-filled PUBG match, and should I give it a shot?

    The pace of the game is faster. The map is smaller, so even with less people in it there's more action. There are no vehicles but there are plenty of ziplines.

    Time to kill is longer; engagements between squads will usually turn into 3-4 squad battles. It's a lot of fun.

    This sounds promising.

    Does the actual shooting feel as feather-light as Fortnite, or is it more like the normal Titanfall feel?
