            Well at least on HD1 it eas way more one sided if you read all the lore excerpts in the bestiary. SE were expansionist opressors and exploiters and just fricked with the other 3. Borgs were separatists that wanted to grill in peace, bugs were non-invasive wildlife chilling and the ayys were beyond ascendet and SE was just jelly of their superior tech.
            The satire lied in the lies SE had to tell its citizens to convince them that the other factions are a threat.

            But now at least for the atuomatons you can tell one truth already which kinda undermines the premise.

            You're not completely incorrect but the nigh ritualistic murder and putting your enemy's brains into machines on an industrial scale to force them to fight their own kind is arguably way more evil than everything SE did so far.

                Bugs aren't sentient. They're just very dangerous animals.

                Even if the Automatons were not as smart as the Cyborgs they have just enough intellect to know how to do tribalistic sacrifices or learn from their creators about how to make more of themselves to keep the war going.

                Bugs are forgiven and allowed to breed because we NEED them to have a solar empire.

          It only got to that point because SE in HD1 intentionally manufactured all their enemies. Now automatons are just the extremists born from the cyborgs getting wiped out. Perfect propaganda for SE since they don't have to make up bullshit anymore about their enemies being evil. We just don't see enough of the darker stuff SE does so it looks good now. Reminder the scientist corpses you find in the TCS missions had gunshot wounds on them. Pretty clear they either forced them to make the chemicals or killed them after to prevent whistleblowers.

                According to the wiki for HD 1, the bugs are both sentient and space faring.

                "A species that has evolved for millions of years, the bugs have always come out on top in the game of natural selection. They are sentient creatures that live and fight in groups of between three and ten specimens per group.

                How the bugs manage space travel is yet unclear, it may be that unhatched infants or very rapidly evolving, super resilient microbes are launched into space during planetary impacts such as meteoroids or even planetoids.

                One thing is certain, the bugs are everywhere and if they are not destroyed - they can spell the end of mankind."

          Sometimes I just wish people would be more situationally aware.
          Are you throwing an orbital right where people are fighting?
          If I throw an orbital out to an advancing patrol and the red beam visibly appears, why did you advance towards it?
          If we have five minutes left on the clock and we're as far away from extraction as possible, then why are you still fighting? Unless it's the main objective, abandon whatever you're doing, it's not worth it. We need to leave.

              I play on 8 usually, there are at least three EAT pairs within range at all times and me and another diver run straight for them whenever ships come. Usually only 1 or 2 ships makes it which is easy to deal with.

      Autocannon is a great choice. You can kill any bot enemy with it with relatively few shots. Eagle airstrike and 110mm rocket pods are both really good against bots. 380mm, 120mm, and orbital laser are all good as well to throw on outposts.

      Aight, thanks.
      I've tried the airstrike as well but I dislike having more than 1 eagle, always forget to use all of them.

      Having multiple eagle strikes is actually a good way to do it. The rearming period is relatively short and with the module upgrade to give you an extra use of each one they become extremely powerful.

                You can use terrain anon. Also if you run far enough away shit just despawns. Pretty easy to do vs bot bases/objectives. Piss off the base, and then run off and the dudes that were defending just despawn. Bots are also easier to lose than bugs as they are slower and less of them in melee following you closely.

      Ab-humans & friendly xenos though I’m still a little iffy on unless their DRG tier bros or lewdable.

      After each faction gets their own reinforcement's & new gear , we’re scheduled to get the Illuminati. AFTER that going of the data mines & leaks it’ll be a mini faction of rebels/traitors, followed by a major faction of Plant/zombie/the beast style group.

    How do people decide on this shit? It's a literal hivemind of children who don't know shit. Adults use the equipment they find to be the most useful and fun through their own experimentation. The Senator is the most fun and punchy weapon I've unlocked so far. It can literally one shot warriors. The drawback is the reloading speed, it should be increased by about 15%.

        The senator has the best oenetration for any sidearm. It penetrates most armour, including guard heads and charger limbs. For some reason the armour penetration stats on half of the guns is just incorrect. As I said, it can one shot a large number of terminids if you land a headshot. It takes half to three fourths of a mag to kill a warrior with the machine pistol, the senator can kill 6 before reloading.

      Yeah, I'm at the point where I don't even bother with some irl friends, a few of which I've known since school. It's either

      Or
      >Buys the game, has fun for a few days, then begins complaining about this and that, acting as if playing is some sort of burden
      I just make friends on game discords/in game. It's very easy to make friends in helldivers, whenever I log in I have multiple people I can join and hang out with. If an irl friend has the game and wants to play then great, but I'm no longer trying to convince anyone to buy anything.

    Is the anti material rifle broken or what? I've played for 60 hours, have used it many times, and every time I use it the thing just doesn't fricking hit what in targetting. And it's not a bullet drop issue. I see the bullet either LITERALLY pass through the enemy without dealing damage, or the fricking bullet goes to the left or right of the target despite being stationary prone.

      hit registration/connection quality has started to get BAD in this game as of the last big patch (the one that fked up everything and started crashing games) I used to have absolutely no issues hitting targets with the slugger, stalwart, AC, etc and now its not uncommon for me to see shots pass right through targets.

      Surprised it's not being discussed more tbh.

        Honestly I've never had an issue with hit registration with any other weapon than that piece of shit anti-material rifle. I'm consistently impressed by the game's performancer and ability to keep clients in sync considering the amount of information on screen at once (this is excluding the constant crashing - I consider that a separate performance issue). Every other weapon feels great, even when I'm playing with people on the other side of the planet. There is almost no lag and I have no idea how they've achieved that. Note that I'm not sucking these Swedes off, the game has many issues, but hit reg and lag hasn't ever been an issue for me other than this specific weapon. Also the 500kg feels like it has shit hit-reg but I have been putting that down to simply having a much smaller AOE than the explosion effect implies. They need to buff the fricking radius for that shit and increase the cool-down, or reduce the explosion effect, because at the moment it's unsatisfying to see a bunker-buster go off but then also see half the enemies within the explosion emerge unscathed.

          Bots are fun imo except for the devestators. There's something deeply unsatisfying in fighting them. They're tanky, which would be fine if it felt fun to deal damage to them, but unlike tanky bugs which spurt blood, guts, and have dismemberment, the tanky bots sort of just feel like you're shooting at a steel cargo container. I think if they simply gave us more visual feedback in terms of how much damage we're doing by it would be so much more fun. The bots need chunky bits of metal flying off in all directions, huge sparks, etc. I know that they already do this to some extent, and the bot grunts feel satisfying imo because of this, but devestators, hulks, etc. feel like SHIT to fight.

          The reason people love bugs is because it's a very visceral experience. You feel like you're in the shit, and you feel like you are the shit, when you're in the thick of it covered in guts as bug heads and limbs fly across the screen. Shooting metal in video games has never been fun and they need to realise that and work on giving more visual feedback to overcome that inherent fact.

            Devastators would be fine if the rockets did a bit less damage or fired in a more concentrated volley. The main issue is that you have to dive out of the way or sprint because strafing still gets you hit and they lock on instantly with one hit rockets.

      I've only tried the spear a few times and never liked it because the lock-on felt broken. However, last night I got recoiless-rifle pilled after spending weeks thinking it was shit compared to the EAT. To me it feels slightly less effective than the EAT, but I was getting charger headshots with it and it felt really nice. Having an entire backpack of rockets seems to be a well-balanced tradeoff when compared to the more effective EAT. They're both well designed imo.

        Consider how fun it is to headshot a charger, or to lay into a mob with the MG43, or to cave in the head of a warrior with the breaker. That shit is FUN. They could definitely achieve a similar effect with the bots, but it would require quite a bit of work. For it to be comparably fun, imo, mag-dumping a shotgun into a devestator should result in massive dents, exposed wiring, buzzing and shooting out electricity, that sort of shit. At the moment the best you get is some sparks and an exploded (little) head. People complain about the rockets, but I really think the main issue is the visual feedback and most people don't realise. They're going from the stimulation of fighting bugs with massive visual feedback to the comparatively unsatifying visual feedback of the bots and placing the blame of why that feels bad in the wrong place.

      I only have the Steeled Veterans one, but I have enjoyed it. I'm the anon who was ranting about the Senator earlier in the thread. The pack is worth it just for that imo. The Incindiary Breaker is quite fun, it excels at CC and fricks Shriekers. The incindiary grenade seems underwhelming but I haven't played around with it too much - it would take a pretty good grenade to beat the impact in terms of fun and utility.

      I have tried some of the Cutting Edge stuff by picking it up in game - the Sickle fricks hard. Really good weapon. Each pack seems to have one item in particular that appeals to me. Steeled is worth it for the Senator, Cutting Edge is worth it for the Sickle.

      Explosives bypass armor so technically the best armor is light with fortified. Because not getting hit is better than planning to get hit. Also bots are not a faction you want to sit still but rather constantly move and reposition. They just have too much firepower that eventually you will run out of options to deal with them. Light armor is a no brainer because Med/Heavy is too slow

Now that I see I've killed like 4x more bugs than bots I'm trying to play more bots, and I'm getting my ass kicked. it's like every time I pop out I get blasted by some shit that can kill me in 1-3 hits. why am i suddenly dogshit?

      Bots are mostly luck. I know people say they like fighting them, but what they like is getting lucky. It takes two rockets to end even someone wearing full armor with a shield. On helldive you always have 4-5 raiders trained on you at all times, ticking down until one of them hit.

      Yeah I know Ganker doesn't like truth but Bots and how fun you're having depend entirely on the dice roll, doubly so if you're on one of the sand planets and you can't see 50 meters but they are accurately tracking you from 150 away.

    I like the challenge but sometimes this RNG just feels completely stacked. It's more annoying that this was the last mission of my chain, and the one before was so easy that I could 100% it without any trouble.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      On higher difficulties you can definitely be strategic, but in a team sense. Some enemies you have to attack from behind, so you need to expend a special attack or have team members flank them.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      It does seem very simple but it does have some strategy required. If you shoot everything that moves, you'll get overwhelmed quick because shooting things causes things to call in more things and more things etc. etc. etc. until you're dead.

      Unless it's like low difficulty, you usually have to pick your fights, and the fights you pick and abilities you select (called 'strategems', things like airstrikes, special weapons, and turrets, you get four max per player) determine how you accomplish it. It has a lot of variety.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Yea. You need to actually coordinate with your team to effectively tackle higher level missions. You can't just shoot every enemy you see or you'll end up getting swarmed. You do also need to bring the right tools for the type of mission you're doing. You can make some missions really easy and some really hard just by picking the wrong shit.

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      The strategic value comes from pre-planning your loadouts and how to approach missions and their side objectives.
      If you brought a loadout to go solo hunting bases and survive then you do that while the rest of the team does whatever. If you brought a direct heavy combat loadout then its best to stick to your team so you don't fight reinforcements forever because you can't kill fast enough on your own. If you brought a fast and stealthy loadout you go for PoIs to grab every single sample and extra loot on the map possible while your team deals with the objectives.
      Basically the strategy comes from prep time, and while in the mission all you have to think about is the execution of your plan because your loadout won't change for the entirety of it.

      Lemme give you a pro tip and suggest trying this with your friends

      Bring smokes

      At least two players bring eagle or orbital smoke strike.

      When shit hits the fan and it becomes laser city, drop a smoke on either your head or their head.

      Wide open fights become a LOT more fun if the chance of dying in the open becomes 50% instead of 100%. You can even stop and line up shots.

      You need to use small squad tactics.

      Split into 2-man teams and flank groups, when the bots turn to fire on one group, the other pops up and waylays them.

      Use cover liberally. Also, the bodt have a "supression" mechanic where they become less accurate if you shoot at them. Not 100% less accurate, but enough to cover a retreat

    Why are Berserkers/Bile Spewers so badly designed? One is a tanky melee enemy in a faction filled with ranged weapons. What is the logic in that?

        It's another situation similar to the charger. The intended weakspot is the head/torso but they take so much fricking damage, the practical and more efficient way is taking out their 2 arms.

      They force stealth on you and a lot of people don't like that. Pretty much the moment you try engaging the enemy when your eagles are on CD, you get raped because it's pretty much guaranteed that they'll get a drop off or another patrol will intercept before you can kill them all. So the sneaky approach puts people off. I have friends who I'm 99% certain are physically incapable of clearing high diff bot missions because they refuse to not shoot everything they see and instantly enter infinite death loops until teammates force them to respawn on the other side of the map.

              Bug missions I run with Sickle Primary with EAT + Rover.

              Or Arc Thrower with stratagems to help with bile titans, like Rail Cannon Strike and 500kg. Don't reall need the baackpack slot so I'll just bum a random backpack off a teammate when there's is off cooldown. I've even taken an auto cannon backpack a few times so I could basically given auto cannon bro infinite ammo and team reloads.

              Both work amazing well, really just depends on what I feel like running at the time.

            Punisher is better, if you have good aim it's just as effective against Hive Guards although you have to try a lot harder, other than that the extra damage goes a long way when dealing with Brood Commanders. They're both worse than Breaker though

                I used it before it became FOTM, Anon. I have been vouching for its power before it was buffed and people realized it was good. I know the weapon better than you do. I also use it against bugs, even though I don't think it's particularly compelling there, because I like it so much.
                You are being utterly disingenuous to suggest it's better against Automatons than Scorcher, or that it outranges Scorcher.
                It's good against bots, and it's good at range, but Scorcher is better in both regards. The only reason to suggest otherwise is that you haven't used the Scorcher yet.

      I'm questioning how you spelled "Scorcher" as "Slugger" that many times in a row. You are fricking insane if you think Slugger is better than Scorcher against bots. Scorcher does better against all those targets you just listed and gets walkers from the front as a bonus.

      Slugger is so useful, it's unreal. I'm worried the devs will learn that people are having fun with it and nerf it.

      It was always good, people were just morons who couldn't handle the poor ammo economy.

          I didn't say the bots were getting close, it's the bugs that like to get close.
          The scorcher is, for the most part, a better gun than the slugger all around, but it's main drawback is that the splash damage makes it dangerous against close enemies.

    For bots the only Eagle worth taking is the 110MM rocket pods. One shots tanks, cannon towers, does a good chunk to hulks, and can still be used to take out fabricators. I find bots aren't typically balled up enough for something like a normal air strike, or cluster to be worthwhile. And the 110MM basically does the same job of the 500kg vs bots but easier and more reliably.

        They don't, it works a little different from orbital railgun etc. They will pick the biggest target in a small area around the beacon, wherever the beacon ends up. It won't "snap" to something so the target has to still be there when the eagle arrives and drops the pods.

      You just need to git gud with the eagle airstrike and you'll releasile that it's by far the best eagle against bots.

Whatever it comes from the right or left does not matter except in extreme edge case scenario with cliffs where you need pinpoint accuracy, that shit never fricking happens anyway, and you probably have a better stratagem for this situation equiped anyway (strafing run, precision strike or whatever else)

      Normal airstrike does fine against bots, and is valuable for objectives. There's a particular heavy outpost configuration where one eagle airstrike will take out two fabs and two cannon towers, it's amazing.
      Rocket Pods are stellar though against bots, continue to use them. I just can't bring myself to ever drop eagle airstrike, it's so versatile.

      There's no universe where having to walk up to a devastator and slowly cook him from outside cover is a smarter option than twoshotting him in the faceplate from quadruple the range and from behind a wall. You're full of shit.

      What are you talking about you fricking schizo? Why am I walking up to it with the Scorcher? Do you think I'm talking about the flamethrower? You know, when I suggested you don't know what you're talking about, I didn't think it was literally true. The PLAS-1 Scorcher is not the flamethrower. It's the fricking Scorcher. And since you obviously don't have it yet, let me inform you that once you do get it you will understand that it is the best primary for bots by a country mile.

          Anonymous

          No, it couldn't, because if you use them right rocket pods are fire-and-forget. I mean for starters, their best use case is tanks, hulks, and cannon towers which barely move so you shouldn't need to lead them with either strategy, but the whole point is that while the rocket pods don't auto-aim as well as the orbital rail, they still auto-aim very well and take the guesswork out of the picture for you, so you can deal with a tank in a half-second by hucking a beacon at it, no need to try and line up a shot. You can only miss rocket pods if you really have disastrously bad beacon throwing.
