        because it obviously does something else that isn't DPS related, moron

        it has a ton of stagger and can stunlock groups of bugs

        There's a hidden value the Pummeler has going for it.
        Compared to the Liberator Concussive that staggers, the Pummeler STUNS as if inflicting a 1 second EMP.

        This held back a dozen Berzerkers during extraction so they all remained in place for an airstrike. It makes you a really good support in a team.

        Perma stagger. Same for SMG. You shoot stalker and it doesn't ducking move

        ah yes so its gonna get nerfed next patch after people bought the new pack, got it

        It’s simple they have to remove the armor level system and make any weapon damage armor until it pierces and the deals damage to health. Low caliber should take a long time to pierce like 3-4 clips while high calibers should pierce easily. Simple.

    Well then enjoy paying for the battlepass I guess. It's not like I particularly go out of my way for POIs either now I'm SC rich, but I still do them because they have samples and ammo, stims etc.
    If your team is only doing the objective you will stoll come across 4-7 poi's a game that are basically in front of you, IF they're clearing all the nests then they're pretty much walking the entire map, in which case all of the POI'S are rarely out of reach.
    Do POI's, they're useful for ammo grenades and stims if nothing else.

      it sounds nice on paper, but HD2 community is toxic as frick and it only takes a few minutes to remember why 85% of everyone is playing solo or 2/4. Vets don't give a shit and would happily wipe everyone off the map if it meant finishing wrapping things up 30 seconds earlier. People want to play with others, but other people are probably gonna frick things up even worse. The two biggest problems with the game are balancing and the playerbase.

        There's no downtime in a mission. You're either fighting or running to the next fight, and outside of really low difficulties even a tiny skirmish can snowball into WW3. You never get a chance to relax. I need to alt tab and scroll Ganker or twatter for a few minutes after a mission.

        I'd kill for a mission type that was like a 1/3rd the number of bugs, but they were mostly heavies. Getting swarmed for 30 minutes straight is exhausting.

      Ensure you only have one input source in windows audio settings. Check to see it works in Windows in various other software, but this looks to be working for you as you stated other games it works fine. Check the HD2's setting for audio and make sure it only see the one mic input and it is selected, change the press to talk to open mic and see if it works that way and then set it back to press to talk or w/e you prefer.
      I know I stumbled upon an issue with the mic after the last patch, the game would mute both me and my friend after he selected a mission and we got into our hellpods to drop we both thought each other's mic was set to mute and so we played the game in silence and then after several minutes the game fixed itself and we were able to hear each other again.

      They are all side grades or downgrades from existing weaponry, and the weaponry and question are generalist, all rounders so you're not getting any new kind of functionality like you would be with something like the erupter or grenade pistol. The booster is the best part of the bond, but you can honestly pass on that as well. This is probably the weakest war bond released to date and I can safely say that you can completely skip it and not miss anything that you don't already have.

      The primaries suck the dick of people who think they've got superior skills because all they do is run to point A, activate, run to point B, activate, run back to point A, bugs are gone, profit.

      The game as it is is 75% less fun than what it was at launch and the midwit developers are fighting hard to nuke the remaining 25%

      The devs don't play their own game, nor they understand why it was fun at the beginning.

      Same, once you realize that you can kill two mooks in one shot by aiming between them if they're close together, the biggest downside of it is negated (handling large groups). It was one of the first weapons I've unlocked and it's still 70% of my primary playtime after unlocking everything.

      As long as they're not wasting tickets I let them be, because there can only ever be one breach(s) per map at any one time so it makes my life doing the objectives/POI's significantly easier because the risk of breach is far less when I clear that compound.

              The nerf really hurt it, but it can still be usable on bugs. Just treat it like a pump action marksman rifle and aim for the head, two shots can decapitate a brood commander. Speaking of brood commanders, I hate how they get both more aggressive and have better tracking after their heads are gone. Walking forward while slashing wildly? Makes sense. Turning to track me after I strafe their assault? Fricking how.

                Why didn't they just give it penetration dropoff or something, jeez. There were so many ways to handle it and they picked the most moronic.

                They could have worked off of real slug issues like missing penetration on armour and huge ballistic drop off and comparable slow muzzle velocity.

                Lazy and/or incompetent to do stuff like that since penetration dropoff isn't coded in by default so they'd have to implement it.
                It's why they can't do anything about specific gun weakpoint modifiers because that's not a thing explicitly tied to the gun.
                The entire code is spaghetti shit where the fricking stalwart's and guard dog damages are tied to the liberators for some reason.

      The nerf really hurt it, but it can still be usable on bugs. Just treat it like a pump action marksman rifle and aim for the head, two shots can decapitate a brood commander. Speaking of brood commanders, I hate how they get both more aggressive and have better tracking after their heads are gone. Walking forward while slashing wildly? Makes sense. Turning to track me after I strafe their assault? Fricking how.

      Haven't noticed any trash mob enemies where this noticeably increases the number of shots to kill. Along with a slightly lower ROF and muzzle velocity you get:
      >Staggers enemies
      Incredibly useful. Against bots allows you to hold off berserker swarms and hit weakpoints easier when they do get staggered, effectively increasing damage output anyway. Against bugs you can keep hunters/stalkers staggered and away from tonguing your anus, something only the Punisher could do effectively previously.

      I haven't decided yet if I like the Punisher or the Pummeller more vs. bugs but it's nice to finally have an alternative.

              Why? It feels good and is entirely reliant on the user as to how effective it is and it's an early unlock for newbies.

                SOMETHING is going to be the most versatile thing. If they nerf it, people will find another general use workhorse to bring to missions because you have to have something that destroys heavy armor and encampments. It doesn't 1HK0 titans/striders unless you luck out and every single one hits (and even then, it's iffy) and it isn't even guaranteed to take out chargers and hulks. It's fine how it is now.

                I agree but think about it, no other orbital/eagle is as fast, reliable, both pinpoint and generous and can kill virtually everything

                The guy I was originally responding to asked a hypothetical, and given Arrowheads track record, Eagle Airstrike is the most likely candidate for a nerf because it's good at everything and doesn't have any real faults

                I'd rather airstrike not get nerfed, and instead, more demolition force be given to Strafing Run and Orbital Gatling Barrage, as they are, you have to be incredibly lucky for 2 of the shots to line up and close a fabricator/bug hole
                I also want Precision Strike Orbital to have it's base cooldown lowered to 70 seconds, it should be comparative to the EAT.

      7 was my comfort zone but it's been invaded by low level noobs lately. I've gone back to 9 to be around people nearer to my skill level. People on 9 actually bring enough things to kill all of the heavies and titans and they know how to deal with any situation.

      9 is pretty easy, most teammate i have still bring quasars and just go 3 strategems
      I mostly do 3 strategems and airburst though, sometimes eat
      bots are 7 regardless

      With my (competent) friends, yes. 8 is perfect.
      Solo: 7 if I'm super sample hunting, 5 if I just want to have fun.
      9 is annoying sweaty mode. I do it when one of my friends demands to experience it, but they've always stopped asking for it after slogging through one operation.
      It's more fun on 8 when we can realistically complete all the map objectives, don't get stuck in reinforcement loops if we don't run away all the time, and get a nice 5-star rating at the end all without sweating all over the keyboard. 8 is perfect (with friends).

      with my shit ass luck i don't go beyond 5/6
      when i play with randoms i'm the only one doing the objective all the others just aggro for no reason, when i play with friends they ensist on going 7 and i get all hordes of bugs on my ass despite going stealth everyone and when i manage to get to the objective i realize i'm alone and the others are lagging behind aggroing mindless patrols

      i'm tired of the shit so yeah, that difficulty is good enough for me

        better than my friend who refuses to do the actual objectives before any side missions.
        We have failed so many fricking missions because his loot goblin ass will not fricking go to the primary objective first, and he wastes the entire timer doing the side ones. He also outright refuses to call the extract "early" (two to five minutes left) because he wants to spend every possible second searching for stuff. Insisting on literally letting the timer run out each mission, for the auto extract call, just to potentially get more samples.
        And then the moron always ends up dying on the return trip anyway, with me being the only one managing to extract.

        It's bad enough that I think I'm gonna outright refuse to play with him, next time, unless he agrees to clear the main shit out first. It genuinely sometimes gets me to screaming mad tier, when he's trying to get to the Pelican, only to panic because there's no stratagems or reinforcemennts.

          Completing the primary objectives increases patrol spawn rate by 4x.
          Completing side (blue) objectives doesn't do anything to spawn rates.
          Blowing up all outposts linearly increases patrol spawn rate after half of them are destroyed, but only up to ~15% more which isn't noticeable.
          Being near an active medium or heavy outpost will increase the patrol spawn rate in a wide area around them, so it's generally a good idea to blow them up unless they're far out of the way.
          I'm assuming your friend isn't autistic and instead knew all this but didn't bother explaining.

            After you do the objectives, the spawn rate of the mobs and patrols increases FOUR times.
            He's right to leave them till last.

            Okay, I didn't know that.
            Why is he justified when we're only starting the very first main objective with about 7 minutes on the clock (the 40 minute missions), in half of the missions I've played with him recently.

              If you have 7 minutes left then yeah, he's being a c**t. At that point you should just complete the primaries and evac.
              You can also complete multi-stage primary objectives right up to the last stage without triggering the increase, i.e. stopping at 18/20 civilians evacuated, destroying all but one egg cluster objective, or stopping right at the "launch nuke" button on ICBM missions. The 4x increase in patrol spawns only happens the instant you complete the last primary objective.

                I'll keep that in mind. it sounds like it'll come in handy to delay the spawn increases until 3 of the 4 are at the evac

                That's a bit late, it's still good to get the subobjectives for the main objective along the way even if they mildly increase spawns.
                I split off from the group to get some side objectives done while the main group handles the main objectives.
                Usually I'm done with most of the map by 25mins still to go. If he's hunting for POIs for SC then he needs to go to lower difficulty levels like 7 where he can frick around a bit more since he's cutting it close.
                Egg missions are longer than others if you're with pubbies, so that realistically should have 1 or 2 done well before the end.
                Only bother doing nest clears when they're near something you want to do like an objective, or you need common and rare samples, they only give you frick all EXP and Req otherwise, and imo not worth doing.

                yeah no he just fixates entirely on the side objectives. He's straight up a fricking butthole who doesn't even care if we fail the mission, as long as he gets the samples, but won't bother power grinding outside of when the group plays to get the last chunks he needs. I'll keep that point about nests being relatively worthless in mind, sounds like it'll save us time in the future.

    The AT sentry is underated, if im near a flat area I'll often throw one near the edge and it will literally kill literally everything by itself, you just have to make sure it's given the range.
    On those defense missions with 4+ bile titans if you hide one round a corner, elevated and on the left so it doesn't get wasted on chaff it absolutely shreds every bile titan that comes into view while I was hitting a new bile titan with RR every 4s.
    I always wanted to see what 4x AT turret could do on those d9 missions, placed correctly so they don't waste bullets on chaff for course.

    Even on d9 with 4 people, if you get two people to place them a fair distance away from a breach with a good field of fire, clear out some chaff so they dont waste bullets, they will kill the entire breach.

        Both kinds of spewers die from scorcher

        To kill bile titan blow up both bellies with scorcher then orbital railcannon, it's a guaranteed kill. If you don't have railcannon just run underneath and use flamethrower, but the squad will usually have at least something to throw at bile titan. If there is nothing at all - just blow up their bellies and kite them indefinitely - they can't puke and walk slower.

              Just 500kg them and finish them with tickle damage if they survived, or 2 shots to the head with a RR eat or phaser, they're the easiest things to kill.
              110mm eagle also hurts them and can kill in one or two passes, but not reliably and sometimes takes three, usually 2.
              If you're good with hitting it directly with Eagle airstrike that can work too.
              They also die pretty quick to the AT gun sentry if you give them the space and take aggro.

              500kg has a smaller kill radius than you think, you can get remarkably close to it as long as you dive, so you can relatively safely bait the bile titan into an animation or turn as the 500kg drops right in front of your face (5-10meters idk how the scale works) and you dive away.
              Your even safe 1-2 meters away as long as you're behind a tiny body height sized rock lying down, to be fair so is the bile titan, so try drop 500kgs on flatish ground with little clutter.

              Lastly you can kill them with the AC, apparently you shoot the mouth 7 times but I wouldn't know I don't take AC on bugs.

              I've even finished them with impact grenades and flamethrowers after a 500kg tbh.

              Charger ass is only an option with explosive damage, which unlike every other damage type deals 100% damage to it.
              5 ass shots from an autocannon or 2-3 direct impact grenade hits will blow its ass off, either killing it outright or making it bleed out in a few seconds. 2 autocannon shots to the back legs after it misses a charge will also kill it, but the vulnerability frames for the back legs are wonky as frick so I just play it safe and blast the ass off each time.

          No. If anyone said that it was one guy trollling you so that's your problem.

          Both kinds of spewers die from scorcher
          Chargers die from flamethrower
          To kill bile titan blow up both bellies with scorcher then orbital railcannon, it's a guaranteed kill. If you don't have railcannon just run underneath and use flamethrower, but the squad will usually have at least something to throw at bile titan. If there is nothing at all - just blow up their bellies and kite them indefinitely - they can't puke and walk slower.

          I have had like zero success with the flamehtowers, is the bile titan just ignoring you? He's go one shot kill melee.

            He can only one shot you if you're standing in front of him or if you're right next to his legs. Once you're under him you're safe.

            The melee is super easy to bait by running under him or just diving away.
            The only real risk is the titan turning around and hitting you with the legs while under him.
            So get out from under them quick and its no issue.

      My friend was seriously trying to tell me it's just designed like Armored Core, where you gotta bring the right gear for each mission.
      He had no answer when I asked him why there's so many weapons which are straight up inferior versions of existing ones, like the newest AR in the warbond, or how they flat out removed the unique feature of the eruptor, or how shit like the Spear and Airburst straight up just don't fricking work.
      Also said anyone complaining about the nerfs needs to git gud cause he can still beat diff 9, and they're irrelevant.

      And then he said the people whining online aren't the majority, despite literally every other place that discusses this game having the exact same sentiment Ganker does right now on it.
      Seriously, go check the steam forums, reddit, twitter, and youtube comments, every single place hates the way this shit is going, myself and our other friend included, but this butthole's only response is
      >yeah but I'm good at the game, and like it as it is, so AH should do whatever they want to

      Only thing that got him to shut up was pointing out I've spent a good 100+ more dollars on the game than he has (40 and not a cent more), and if we're getting down in the weeds my opinion objectively has more weight because I paid Arrowhead more.

    You guys weren't lying about how good the gas orbital is. It's like a little HE barrage with a 65s cooldown. Just took it into a D8 and rocked 20-40 kills every time I used it on a bug breach. Only criticism is that it can be a little inaccurate, I've seen it come down and land away from the strategem be 15m or so.

      Arrowhead are like the GTFO devs. They don't like that people are good at their game, and want you to continually eat shit on the higher diffs.
      These are the same morons who say "we want you to rely on stratagems more than your primaries" forgetting that every stratagem has a fricking cooldown long enough to get you got.

      The 110 is more idiot proof and does more or less the same thing while being an eagle. Precision strike is nice but if they move or it bounces it is useless.

        I don't like to invest too many of my stratagems into being eagles, because I don't want to be hung out to dry when shit hits the fan. The only reason I run two with bugs is because the orbital gas strike has an extremely short timer of 75 seconds, which is even lower with the orbital cooldown ship module.
