        get over the railgun nerf man, it was OP and made taking any other stratagems pointless, I kinda feel the same way about the shield backpack, but at least now there's only 1 strat I literally ALWAYS have to take

          Not that anon but it wasn't OP, still took multiple shots for alot of enemies, the only thing OP was one shotting bile titans in the chin which shouldnt be a thing but works with other weapons, too

          The reason everyone used it is the same reason everyone used the breaker, because all the other options felt like garbage.

                Which is barely more than the time it took to kill a charger with the old railgun, except you can just aim for whatever and it clear some chaff around the charger while you are doing it.

                Anonymous

                No, he's right. You can easily get 8 shots with the arc thrower in the same amount of time as it would take to get the 2-3 needed to kill a charger

                New railgun I believe fast arcing is faster sure. But old railgun is 4 seconds to break armor and 2 to actually kill the charger.
                Even with fast arcing it'll take like 10 seconds to land 8 shots, and that's with every shot connecting where you want it to hit.
                As someone who uses the arc thrower religiously even before people thought it was good, fast arcing isn't nearly as fast as people make it out to be. It's still around a second per shot. Plus you're occasionally going to have the arc hit somewhere besides the leg/head. Plus while the arc gun has impressive range for what it is, the railgun has unlimited range and accuracy, so pre-nerf it was better for just chunking chargers before they even got close to you. I feel like people underestimate how powerful having range on bugs are when all of the units except one have no ranged attacks.

                Given that a single shot almost overloads the heat sink, I wonder if Hot environmental modifiers will make it actually cost one heat sink per shot.

                Hot/cold doesn't affect buildup anon, just cooldown speed.

                Still fricking insane that the made the EAT one shot charger heads instead of the tails. Makes no sense from a gameplay perspective.

                Think about it this way.

                >Vital to bug, fragile mushy brain, heavily armored to protect it, no head = dead bug.

                Still a little dumb from a gameplay perspective, but rewarding a piercing headshot over a non-piercing shot on a easy to hit massive target makes sense.

                This is the speed of two unsafe shots on old Railgun to kill the charger tho
                It really does seem like they complained about the railgun being OP and then just added the railgun again. Which begs the question: what is the purpose of the current Railgun? It doesn't pen armor unless unsafe, and unsafe it's about equivalent to the cannon. So what gives? What is the vision here?

                Oh I thought you were talking about the cannon, not the arc. Yeah, the arc isn't as good as the old railgun. With rapid fire you can maybe kill in a little under twice the time as the railgun.

                Range and ease of access.
                It's alot easier to spam point and click shots at something armored in the distance with a rail gun than it is with any other anti-armor weapon in the game, they should unironically give the railgun an extra shot or make it reload faster to facilitate this, or even better an actual fricking scope instead of a shitty 1x red dot.
                It's basically what the AMR is to bots but to bugs. In which it's p damn good against one unit at very long ranges. When you use the railgun as a super long range support weapon, it kind works for softening up shit for teammates.

                It's barely anti-armor anymore, by the time it's effective at all against bugs you may as wel use the arc thrower or another EAT.
                It lost its niche and instead of bringing it back into its niche, they're introducing a new weapon to take that niche and hoping people find new uses for the old railgun.

                Arc thrower has a limit to it's albeit surprising range, and the EAT/RR are a bit more difficult to hit stuff at long ranges.
                Of course anyone good enough with the EAT/RR is still going to be better than the railgun, but the railgun is still in general easier to use at extremely long ranges.

                >It's alot easier to spam point and click shots at something armored in the distance with a rail gun than it is with any other anti-armor weapon in the game,
                The anti material rifle is just better for this now, thoughbeit.

                AMR can't break charger armor.

                I think the stalwart would need some tweaking to become a primary, maybe only 2 mags instead of 3? Currently it would be the default choice for everyone i would think.

                [...]
                Nah i think it would be more fun if they were just normal. Strategems to me should be about big explpsions or heavy weaponry. If theres an argument it can be a primary i shouldnt have to call it in.
                Like no one would take a recoilless as a primary, or the spear.

                [...]
                The AMR? I think if they made the dmrs we have not suck id be ok keeping it as a call in.
                Im ok calling in backpacks, theyre all bonus stuff. Shield and extra resupplies are nice but might be too helpful if you spawned with them everytime.

                The stalwart even with an ammo nerf is still much more powerful than any other primary in the entire game with the caveat being that the scorcher and slugger are more generalist due to the medium armor pen. But even then the stalwart can overcome that because it's high ROF and ammo cap lets it throw down so many bullets that you're hitting those gaps in the armor anyways.
                People used the breaker so much because it was so good against light armor crowds, the stalwart is literally a crowd killing machine but it's caveat is that it takes up a stratagem/support weapon slot.
                If it could just be equipped on the primary with no other fuss it'd be used on the same level as pre-nerf breaker.
                Replacing primary while still needing to be called down is a fine change. It gives you a better primary on top of allowing you to take another support weapon at the cost of the fact that you're using half your stratagem slots for a better primary and another support weapon. Three if you decide to take a backpack.
                If people want to run a walking armory with little to no fire support, I say let em.

                Yeah, and almost everyone brings along EATs now.
                That may change with this new cannon, but my concern is that the railgun is just useless if the new cannon takes its old niche.

            The shield back pack also lets you ignore basically all kinds of CC. The bugs poison won't slow you because they can't even hit you and you can walk all over those spore/mushroom clusters without being slowed, staggered or ragdolled.
            Vs bots the small arms fire also inflicts aim punch and can throw off your headshots against hulks/devastators and the shield lets you completely ignore it.

            Laser Cannon did get buffed, but it needs to be buffed more. Generally speaking, burst damage is king and the beam weapons are absolute dogshit for burst damage.

            There are ways to fix this. You could have their DPS ramp up the longer you focus on one target, or you could speed up both their DPS and their heat generation. But they're generally bad for hitting weak spots because despite being precise they have a weird amount of sway for weapons with no recoil and the beam makes it difficult to see.

            I know, I know. I main scythe+laser cannon, probably spent 60 hours playing only those and I am fully aware of their strengths (not many) and limitations (a lot.).

            The devs thought that infinite ammo was as good as in HD1 but in HD1 the resupply used up an entire stratagem slot and overworld ammo was super rare.
            In HD2 you're doing something very wrong if you ever run out of ammo so the "advantage" is useless while the disadvantages (lower DPS, no hitstun) hit hard.

          Looks like it's basically an EAT/RR in power. No backpack, no ability to snap-fire, no reloading but also no option for fast-firing assisted reload.

          Probably still my go-to since it seems like a selfish EAT with more uptime.

            Fast firing a RR with assisted reload is fairly useless due to the recoil though.
            Might as well take the five shots and then take a moment to reload by yourself. It's not even that long.

              What? Fast firing lets you fire about once per second (including aiming and recoil adjustment) rather than spending 5 seconds reloading after each shot. How could you fire five shots solo before reloading?

          Looks pretty good. I guess the only disadvantage is it has a long wind-up animation which makes it worse for killing a charger quickly.

            Inability to snapshot means you have a harder time taking advantage of short windows of opportunity, too. I think it'll be good, but it's definitely going to take a bit of skill to use.

            Yeah I agree.
            EAT is good because it's easy to use in a total chaos SHTF scenario, you just dome the charger in the head and keep max payning away from hunters.
            The weakness of EAT is when you're in a controlled situation and you're limited to roughly two shots per minute, but if you could swap your RR backpack with a guy who can give you their ammo backpack you'd be raining death on biles and whatever else.

            Something in the game that's a sidegrade to both and makes different tradeoffs is welcome.

            For things like Chargers, you don't actually have to go full charge to strip the armor. The fact it kills biles in two is secondary to the fact it lets you be mobile while killing biles in two and keeping your support weapon. And, of course, everyone is going to use it like with the Railgun so it'll functionally kill in one + one and the devs will either nerf it or just shrug their shoulders

            It doesn't look like it has ammo, so either an overloaded heatsink means the gun is trashed and you have to get a new one, or the heat meter only exists to tell you when your next shot is ready.

        Part of the reason people complained about the Railgun getting nerfed was that 70 seconds was never enough to clear the charger conga line even with stripping its leg armor.
        Sure this thing kills headshot in one with a huge cooldown, but what about just stripping the armor? We haven't seen that yet. It seems they literally just nerfed the railgun, told people to use strategems, and added Railgun 2.0

    Bro. I managed to get through an entire match without TKing anyone despite them constantly running in front of me.
    I'm quick enough with the damn thing that I can loose the blast into the ground instead of hitting teammates. The issue though is that sometimes you've already fired and some dipshit feels the need to run up to stuff he didn't need to. That's the biggest source of TKs with it.
    People do not understand the damn thing. They don't understand how powerful it is, and how easily it can wipe out everything below charger and Hulks without so much as a hiccup. So you get people who think that despite having nothing for clearing chaff or chargers, they need to run up to deal with a mob while you're already dealing with it. That's where all my accidentals with it come from. Some tard that decided to run up to the charger I'm dealing with instead of staying clear. Or thinking they need to come and pepper a crowd of bugs with their breaker instead of hanging back and watching my six. I can't tell you the number of times I was 1v1ing a charger as a last resort to save a teammate because everyone's anti-tank shit was on cooldown or they were already engaged elsewhere and the moron decides to go and get in the charger's face and harmlessly scratch at it's carapace with their non-penetrating primary weapon.

                Already a thing

                [Theory] The amount of damage you deal when completing an operation is equal to the experience, multiplied by an internal scaler (a combination of impact multiplier and some other variables).
                The impact multiplier scales inversely with the [running average] total population.
                What this means is the galaxy has a target goal at how much liberation can be done across the entire galaxy. Check out some graphs @ Planets for real data points.
                This new method rewards higher difficulties (impact is based on experience) and community alignment (diverging efforts impacts the rates of each other) vs the previous method.

                Which means the bot front is going to eat shit because the shitters on the bug front is there 24/7 because most of them got filtered by the robots shooting back at them, which invalidates their strategy of standing still in the open while shooting. Fantastic.

    I did some testing of different armours vs being hit by one (uno) devastator rocket, and the results showed that Heavy Armour is moderately useful at surviving... a single devastator rocket (although getting hit by two from the same volley which happened a bunch during testing was always death regardless of armour).
    I did each one a few times, could never seem to live with light armour, even against a glancing blow from one rocket. MAYBE the light armour with Fortified would be survivable, but I didn't buy that when it was up so I couldn't test it.

        I unfortunately don't have a Medium + Fortified chestpiece, but I did test Medium + Democracy Protects.
        Sadly 100 Armour cannot survive one rocket unless Democracy Protects activates to save you.
        However, if Democracy Protects activates multiple times, you can potentially survive multiple rockets. This makes armour with Democracy Protects the ONLY armour that can survive multiple hits from a Rocket Devastator barrage.

          I use democracy protects most of the time and I have to hope it triggers twice, once for the rocket hit and the other one when I land on the ground, died plenty of times hoping the 50% save hits the landing if I ever survive the first impact

          The 380mm is a ton of explosives over a wide area, it'll pretty consistently take out the largest of nests without any player intervention, and even if not it'll only leave a single spawn point or 2.

      Started doing helldive with that recently, since randos tend to die mostly to hunter/bile spewer, and the HMG is very good at taking care of that.
      People tend to underestimate that supply backpack mean you also have infinite grenades and stimpacks. Throwing 2 fire grenade and opening fire as they explode generally take care of patrols before they can do anything.

      Rail/110 is for titans. Chargers I take out by playing torero and shotgunning/MGing their butt.

      Part of using arc throwers is having two brain cells: don't hit your allies, don't hit terrain, learn when to release the trigger.

      The other half is knowing to to position to maximize the potential of the gun. A lot of people don't understand this. Running arc thrower usually sees me get two or three times the kills of everybody else on the team just because you're always shooting and always moving.

      Just pop out to use strats. After the gas strat and napalm strat hit the ground, you become immune to their damage. Remember that if the bombs hit you, then your mech will still explode. Let them detonate, then walk into no-man's land.

        It just punishes people who play legitimately if they do.
        I think they aren't going to touch it.
        They've sold a pretty wild number of copies of the game at this point, and if you have a job and would prefer to play the game rather than farm in the game, then the purchase rate vs the exploit farm rate stops being appealing.
        And having a premium store and allowing you to obtain stuff from that store for free is a really compelling psychological hook for the game that they can likely afford for the time being.
        It's gotta be bottom priority for them if its even on their radar.

      it makes perfect sense dumbdumb. if you have an anti armor missile do you point it at the treads or at the crew compartment? well the crew compartment is more heavily armored, but that's what your AT is for. shoot at it and gain maximum return in exchange for maximum penetration. if you have an RPG or whatever you target the treads or something else more delicate.

      charger head has the brain so it fits the metaphor perfectly.

        If you have a video game enemy that charges you head on and requires you to dodge behind it, does it make sense for the player to instantly kill it from the front or the rear?

          but it doesn't "require" you to dodge behind it unless you have no anti-tank rocket. if you have no specialized weaponry then shooting or grenading the unarmored nonvitals is optimal

    I feel like the rate of content is too low for how many dozens of items/armors/stratagems we know are ready to ship. All of my friends have stopped playing, and some would actually keep playing even if they just increased the level cap and added more titles. Who likes being capped on everything?

              The first is to always open the galaxy map before trying to join a game.

    Railgun shouldve been a primary. Trading the ability to damage heavy enemies for literally no crowd control seems fair, and it would pair well with the stalwart or mg. Right now the stalwart is just a super primary, its fun but hardly anyone takes it because its useless against everything but the chaff. Mg is in kind of the same boat.

        Droppable primaries. They should still take a strategem slot and be lost on death, they just replace your primary weapon and allow you to carry something else in the support slot.

        I think the stalwart would need some tweaking to become a primary, maybe only 2 mags instead of 3? Currently it would be the default choice for everyone i would think.

        Nah i think it would be more fun if they were just normal. Strategems to me should be about big explpsions or heavy weaponry. If theres an argument it can be a primary i shouldnt have to call it in.
        Like no one would take a recoilless as a primary, or the spear.

        So should the sniper. And backpacks should be equiped before starting the missions. Like whats the pointin having to call them when the mission starts? Just a waste of time and makes balancing more difficult.

        The AMR? I think if they made the dmrs we have not suck id be ok keeping it as a call in.
        Im ok calling in backpacks, theyre all bonus stuff. Shield and extra resupplies are nice but might be too helpful if you spawned with them everytime.

          I absolutely would take a recoilless or spear as a primary to go with my arc thrower. But in any case the problem is that you would never use a normal primary again over the Stalwart, and the rail is obviously ridiculously strong as a primary too especially paired with something like the MG or the Arc. The rail and stalwart are just too strong to be "free", but giving them the flexibility to pair with another support would be awesome.

          i would usually rather have Breaker than Stalwart as it does the same job at most ranges but with snappier handling. also the Slugger can deal with a broader variety of enemies than the Stalwart thanks to its armor piercing, along with staggering Brood Commanders and Devastators (and Hulks if you get behind them). the Scorcher can deal with Chargers semi capably, disable Bile Titan pukes / set them up to be finished off with railcannon or a half-whiffed 500kg, and can cheese Scout Striders from the front. that's a lot more utility than the Stalwart which is just a medium-damage bullet hose with no stagger and no penetration

        For backpacks, they are treated as a resource so that you can actually lose them and don't just start with one every time you respawn. The ability to share equipment is a fundamental component of the game, and the only way you could balance starting with a backpack is making it disappear when you die.

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          They're not treated as a resource. They last for the whole game. And if you lose you just go and pick it up or if you can't well you fricked up. And if you that that would be too op then make the baseline difficulty little bit harder. Plus this dropping your items on ground makes picking up other items harder, creates possibility for stealing/griefing, balance is a mess because they can create OP items and say "well it has 10min cd so its not akshully OP". But then we have some weakass items like the sniper that still has 5minsomething cd.

    Its been bothering me for a while now, but every time I launch the game it says "new stratagems available" despite owning them all. I finally went through and checked and it says 7/8 Robotics, but they are all bought out. Is it just not counting the exosuit, or is the fact that I bought the exosuit within minutes of it being available bug it out?
