            They dont constantly barrage you with rockets, theres a window of opportunity to pop back out and dome them before the next one starts. Sure it may be tricky when theres a whole squad after you, but that is a legitimate skill issue.

                Whether a skilled player can deal with them is irrelevant to the fact that a drop of a half dozen rocket devastators launching magically regenerated rockets with a cooldown of 5 seconds interspersed with laser fire in between salvos will, in fact, be constantly fricking barraging you with rockets

                Yeah no it's totally fine... lets also just ignore that they have infinite ammo, don't always do their stomp animation, are capable of shooting you while being pummled by bullets (so much for suppressive fire) will shoot you at off angles (not facing you but the rockets still fire at you) and the fact they'll actually just spam at your cover and if there's several they get into a rhythm where basically one of them is always firing at you.

                Loading tips are fake bullshit even the ones that are "real" tips. It's actually is kind of infuriating the game tells you to destroy bug holes/fabricators to lessen spawns but it actually increases them. So once you reach max level or having a bad time, never ever go for bases and just bumrush the main obj.

                Which is blatantly false and tested. Mission time has zero effect on spawns. Staying in the vicinity of a red enemy activity area does increase spawns, which means the loading tip is a half truth; destroying the structures related to the enemy activity zone will offer temporary relief for that area, but not necessarily for the rest of the mission.

                Or not looking out from the same corner
                The average NPC gamer has a lot of problems dealing with ranged enemies, even when so many options are available.

                Sometimes the game does do jank and have enemies shoot through cover but its still a rarity rather than the norm. Have hardly ever seen a devastator or any enemy in general track my position through terrain and know that I'm coming out the other side, they always take a second to reorient as long as they couldn't see me.

      I had a game where we fudged around the map for the full 40 minutes before getting to evac.
      Evac was crawling with bots and team member left the samples (including supers) in middle of the evac.
      We fought against hordes of bots, hulks and an army of adam smashers.
      At the end, evac arrived and everyone started a mad dash for the samples and transport.
      We got mulched by the bots that dropped right on top of the evac and failed to extract with the samples.
      Mission was accomplished, but at what cost?

                Laser Cannon can technically kill high-health targets faster than the Quasar Cannon, usually when hitting weak points. Examples are the Hulk, the Tank/IFV, Cannon Towers, Shrieker Nests, etc.

                That's about it. You can even overheat the Quasar, for some reason, meaning the reliance on heat sinks is a non-issue.

                laser is fairly good against bots. It can melt devestators and shit real fricking fast. The main problem is its stupid shaky recoil, making it harder to keep it on the weakspot, but if you hit the weakspot most shit melt in an instant.

              I wish dropships falling and exploding on enemies was more reliable. At least their derelicts don't come zooming in from off-screen, now, but a lot of the time they'll drop on the passengers it just released, explode, and they'll carry on like nothing happened.

      What I noticed is that the timeframe of bots firing rockets you oftentimes matches the moment were you lose your “background focus”, meaning the moment your secondary attention (main attention being the thing you are firing at) gets blurry or vanishes. Normal humans can only keep up a secondary attention for a short time before all the brain power switches back to the main focus. I dont know if its intentional and calculated from the devs. I regularly purposefuly decide to sideline a rocket bot on the sides of my fov in order to focus on a more imminent threat, but keep my thumb ready to press space to dodge a rocket. More often than not, not even a second after I lose that vision and thumb alertness, I get hit by the rocket I knew was going to eventually come at me.

        I'll still try it out, since I'll try everything out, but I'm skeptical about whether the medium armor penetration is enough to make a difference. Can't be worse than the Penetrator at least.

    I had an unsettling discovery earlier.
    If you activate a stratagem and hold it, so it's ready to be thrown, but then you get ragdolled, you will drop the stratagem ball which will cause it to activate on that spot.
    I was readying an airstrike as I was sprinting towards a bot base, fell a few feet into a small valley, ragolled, and airstruck myself.

      Yes. Works the same with grenades. If you were going to throw them but you died/ragdolled you will drop them.

          I think you can bind the directions for stratagem as different buttons than the movement keys? But then it means you have to let go of your mouse and lose camera control. Or maybe bind the 4 directions on mouse button 1 (left) 2 (right) and mousewheelup (up) mouse wheeldown (down)? I didnt try though. Just a supposition.

    If you wear infiltrator armor and/or otherwise try to behave stealthily even when at least one enemy is actively fighting you, does that at least help reduce the amount of additional mobs near you actively coming at you?

        One thing that makes me really mad when fighting bots is when you're behind a rock or something and one of their missiles hits the other side of the rock, but for some reason the knockback aoe is fricking huge so you get ragdolled and pushed back even though you take no damage. It happens constantly and it's so fricking annoying, i hate losing control of my character

        The real evil of the robots are the heavy devastators.

        This, honestly. Rocket Devastators are scary, but the true nemesis is the fricking Heavy Devastator with his huge shield and just absurd accuracy. He will shoot you from 200 meters away and if a single shot hits you will be aimpunched to hell and lose any chance you had of hitting him. Between the ragdolling and aimpunching i think that's one of the reasons why bots are so annoying, they keep making you lose control of your character

          Even the cooldown period they have after firing for a while is so small that they might aswell not even have it.

If you can get behind a Hulk a Breaker will destroy its heatsink and put it in a bleedout state extremely quickly. Using said Breaker on berserkers is an uphill battle by comparison.

            I never got the problem with berserker
            They fumble the moment they get hit by a shotgun and if you hit the blippy parts you can down one in 3 shots
            You have like 15 in the magazine and you can reload them one by one so can never really run out

    How do you actually one-shot dropships with the Quasar? You need to track it as it flies, so you have to time it so the cannon fires off when the dropship starts hovering? Do you kill everyone in the ship, by causing the ship to fall on the bots right below it?

            To clarify this anon's comments, dropships always behave the same based on their cargo. A dropship carrying a tank bobs a lot more after releasing the passenger, for example.

    I'm having trouble deciding on a support weapon I like. Autocannon has been my go-to so far, fast firing, fast reload, handles everything pretty well.
    Recoilless Rifle is strong and it's nice to deliver a frick you to an oncoming Hulk, but god damn is it slow to reload. If I use it to assault a position I can't really rely on using it again, unless I'm anticipating shooting down a dropship.
    I'm not really a fan of calling down Expendable Anti-Tanks to deal with problems, especially on these delayed Strategem planets.
    Maybe I'll just play around with the Quasar for now until I hit level 20 and can get the Railgun.

      Autocannon is solid

              Defender (not great over long distance) or Diligence.
              Later on you can unlock Sickle (Cutting Edge) and Slugger (base warbond on page 8 or something), which are very good up close and at distance. Sickle has a 100m scope, and Slugger is just a slug shotgun with not much drop making it accurate over long distances.

      Laser canon is a good option for bots if you haven't tried it yet. Only thing it can't do is blow up factories.
      - Very accurate, minimal recoil
      - No travel time
      - Melts AA guns, mortars, Canon towers, tanks from range
      - Can kill hulks
      - Melts through the chicken walkers if you hold it on any part of their body

      Biggest downside to this weapon is lack of stagger. It does not do well against the Saw Arm dudes unless you have ample range. Biggest risk is taking a bullet and getting staggered while you're beaming a devastator in the face.

        The plasma rifle functions like a mini Auto Cannon. It can kill the scout walkers in just two or three shots to the front armor and it's a lot better against berzerkers then the laser is. It can even do good damage to hulks if you can get at the rear vents.

    Sickle is better than the MG-101, and I'm being 1000% serious.

    Quasar is better than every other Anti-Armor weapon by the sheer fact you get to use it every 5 seconds, no ammo/battery, and it self recharges even when you swap weapons. This means that while EATs and RR can only effectively be used against actual heavy armored units, it's limit on ammo means they become wasted when used against medium-light armored units; unlimited Quasar ammo doesn't have this problem, so you can freely plug Rocket Devestators without a care in the world and zero ramifications for doing so.

    Sickle + Redeemer + Quasar + Bubble Shield is THE most powerful combination you can possibly have in the game, and it's not even particularly close. I sincerely do not understand why these devs continue to make energy weapons better than their ammo alternatives with absolutely ZERO drawbacks, but whoever is in charge of doing it sincerely needs to be fired. Frick, even the bubble shield is superior to the ballistic shield in every possible way.

      It has a longer cooldown and windup than the RR, but the tradeoff is you don't need to be immobile to reload it.

            If you press fire and aim at the same time, you will start shooting your portable reloadless minigun a literal half second once the crosshairs have made contact.

            Yes, the Sickle is a portable minigun in every possible way except looks. In fact, it's better than that in some ways:
            >Rev time before shooting
            >Insane fire rate
            >Very good damage
            >Uses a heat meter to manage long periods of rapid fire

                MG is good against Brood Commander's and the chaff shield bugs. That's literally it. At that point, why the frick wouldn't you just use the Sickle, since Brood Commander's can still get their head/legs blown off with it, and the shield bugs literally are not a threat, ever?

                Your problem is you are looking at the paperwork, but know jack ahit about how it plays out in actual practice. Sickle is simply better than both HMG, and is a primary weapon vs support STRATEGEM.

                No, I'm clearly saying in actual practice, it doesn't perform better. Both Machine guns do absolute horrid damage despite their drawbacks, and Sickle does 80% of their strengths with literally NONE of their weaknesses, and is a primary weapon at that. Machine gun starts are bad outside the Stalwart (which has niche but good applications), and the others aren't worth a strategem slot of we're being objective here.

                I fricking love the sickle and use it all the time even against bots on occasion, but trying to compare it to the MG is moronic, being able to do damage to medium armor is such a big plus that it's why people run the slugger entirely over the punisher.

                The sickle IS inaccurate.
                The amount of times I have had my crosshair straight at a dev head at close range and lit him the frick up only for my bullets to looney toons around his damn face makes me unironically just drop this gun and pick up the slugger sometimes.
                Then I pick it back up a mission or two later but that's besides the point.
                I'm probably overplaying how bad it really is but it's definitely less than the machinegun. Considering how we don't see accuracy values in game, I wonder if the liberator has actually better accuracy than the sickle, but I doubt they did anything besides just change a liberator around and call it a new gun.

                HMG can penetrate charger's rear leg armor and kill it under a second, stop shitting on it

                I love the HMG, but holy shit you're gimping yourself if you're taking it on bug missions.

                No he's right I just tested it the MG is actually extremely accurate. More so than I thought. I even turned the MG it up to 900 and ran around until I exhausted it was still was more accurate than the sickle.

        The heavy medic armour at least has a purpose, extra stims and extended stim super-regen is very nice in combination with the higher armour vs bots, you can just run through fields of laser fire with no fear, as long as something doesn't one-shot you (which with 150 armour and Vitality Booster, only a few things can) you'll live through it. That being said, the value prospect still isn't incredible.
        The semi-light engineering armour on the other hand, not great. There's a pure light version called CE-74 Breaker which is just better. However that set isn't going to come back on the store for 2~3 more weeks.
        You'll probably want to just save for Cutting Edge, or the upcoming bond, or whatever comes on the store on Monday.

                Look I hate the dude you're replying to and I already called him a big gay homosexual that likes balls in his face but the punisher can be reloaded inbetween shots just like the slugger so if you even pretend to not be mentally moronic you should NEVER run dry until you're fully out of ammo, which also should never happen because you can call in supplies or just find one of the hundred POIs that has ammo all over the ground.

                Did they nerf the higher difficulties?
                I swear it's gotten way easier with less enemies on screen on 7-9

                No it's just rng. I had a game on 7 last night that went off the fricking rails fast, there were literally like 7 tanks and 4 hulks dropped along with a few hundred chaff in the first 5 minutes of the round. I had to try and rally my team to disengage and wrap around cause they just kept running in and dying trying to get their support gear. At the same time we played another mission in the operation where it was smooth sailing with like no real struggle.

                the breaker/defender are both great primaries that can kill chaff quickly, the senator can headshot larger enemies and pierce medium armor, impact grenades can kill basically everything. Eagle bombing runs can clear nests/patrols/breaches and destroy bug holes, and the 500kg bomb can kill bile titans and chargers reliably as long as you know how to use it. Orbital laser is also good for deal with large groups and can even kill large enemies like bile titans if you are in a pinch and need to run. Auto-cannon for clearing bug holes and killing bile spewers/stalkers quite easily while also being ammo efficient.

        why would you want less armor? the default armor has heavy armor stats and good movement speed, you can take 1 extra hit from everything, aren't slow as frick, and this has carried me through most missions
        i'm starting to think that the game's armors are all sidegrades and the default is the best period now that armor rating is fixed. we really need to be able to swap perks on armor because i simply don't use anything else at this point

    Does this game have some sort of cover system/jetpack or glider? I've seen people do some Max Payne shit but they keep tanking the hits, there's no cover or anything, not sure if they're tanking it for democracy or if they just don't know any better

      >cover system
      There is no 'snap to cover' mechanic if that's what you mean, you just stand, crouch or go prone behind something solid and there's your cover. If you can see an enemy in the first person view then they can also hit you, but they don't have pinpoint accuracy so the more of your body that's in cover the less chance they'll have of hitting something exposed.

        Hopefull you can shoot while crouching/prone? Coming from the new Outcast game I was pretty disappointed he would stand back up just to shoot, but then again he does have a shield and a dash so there's no need for a cover system. Seems like I can play this game stealthily by crawling around and lobbing grenades/meleeing enemies while circling their base? Can't wait to get my hands on this game, hopefully it isn't ded when I finally do.

      What loadout are you using? You should be on the move all the time in the open, if there's cover you should use it. You should avoid patrols whenever possible cause it'll just spawn more in. You should prioritize enemies in this order

          I won't shit on your loadout but I wouldn't use it. Cluster/airstrike is redundant, you should just keep one because they share charges anyway. I prefer airstrike cause it can full clear small and medium bot bases. The diligence is... Bad. I use the slugger, it is one of my favorite guns in ANY game over my 35 years on this planet. The recoiless is fine if you're good with it, but I run the EAT and shield pack. The shield really helps you not get staggered over and over when your repositioning. My loadout is

              The slugger can shoot just as far, it staggers on EVERY shot, it can one-shot devestators, you can literally hit r after every shot and slam rounds in between shots so you will never run out of ammo until you've shot all 77 rounds if you're in a clusterfrick. It does every single thing the diligence does but better and harder and sexier.

              Yeah the EAT kills dropships in one hit to the engines. I think the damage is the same as RR honestly. It can one-shot hulks if you hit the face perfectly, two shots tanks or cannon turrets, one shots chargers. And the CD is under two minutes so you can drop them all over every time there's an encounter

            Aim the rear leg you can kill it in about ten rounds

            I just turn it to 1200rpm and unload in its ass

            HMG can penetrate charger's rear leg armor and kill it under a second, stop shitting on it

      And an actual good support weapon can kill a charger without being handicapped to years long reload animations with abysmal ammo.

      You'll get them. Sometimes they just show up days later. Small indie dev pls understand.

      >There's no reason to extract unless you have no time left or reinforcements
      I need these goddamn common samples.
      >BRO YOU HAVEN'T MAXED YOUR SHIP YET
      No I haven't. And I never will if you morons continue to throw yourselves to the bugs on masse to do a small nest on the other side of the map when we're already done with all the objectives.
      I'll do nests on the way to objectives because that's more samples, but if we're done with the mission and we don't have many reinforcments left, I'm hauling my 20 common samples and 20 rare samples plus the 6 super samples to the goddamn extraction.

      I understand wanting samples, if you don't already you should be dropping them at extract if you happen to pass by it mid mission. But if you just lock in it's really hard to fail missions. I've got 100 hours and I play on haz7 and I think my number of times not extracting is only like 20, and that includes all the times this trash fame has CTD me, so realistically I've been in missions and failed to extract like 5 times.

      There is some fluctuations in spawn rates depending on planets, orders and joel's mood. Most of them aren't announced btw.
