    they were barely touched, both are still good and they did buff weapons that nobody used, they do need to buff more weapons and strategems tho

          Flamethrower had a significant damage boost and RR/EAT got their penetration capability improved to one-shot chargers.

          Flamer, Laser Cannon, Breaker, Slugger, Breaker Spray&Pray, EAT and Recoilless Rifle. Far more have been buffed than nerfed.

          Functionally only the flamethrower +50% damage. Bunch of other weapons for ammo boosts but that's essentially a minor minor qol boost but no functional change. Eat/rr weren't buffed charger head health just got dumpstered so those can 1hko it now.

            Laser Cannon also got buffed to have medium armor penetration and better handling. Technically it can kill a hulk by shooting the eye now.

    >annoying to downright game-breaking bugs every second game
    Bugs are annoying, but they are fixing lots of them every patch, though there are some new bugs getting introduced every patch. I think they need to do an entire patch dedicated to just squashing all these bugs and glitches. But they aren't that frequent.
    >shitty matchmaking system, pier-2-pier networking with no host migration
    There is host migration, however it doesn't work on the ship, only in mission. I think the main issue is the tolerance of connection, literally just a tiny hiccup or sudden fluctuation of your net can kick you out of the mission.
    >half the weapons/stratagems are useless or straight up outclassed by others
    I agree somewhat? You still have a good selection of primaries (breaker, slugger, liberator penetrator, sickle, scorcher) and each one has its own pros and cons. I'd say majority of strategems are viable, it's just that some are better as a safe pick (laser works in every scenario etc, 500kg is always a good pick etc). Some strategems outweigh others for some situations (walking barrage for bot missions, 120mm for search and destroy, eagle cluster for medium difficulties or when you're running weapons for armored enemies, tesla tower for extermination, mortars for bot missions etc). I'm betting more strategems are coming on the way too.
    >nerfed weapons like breaker and railgun
    They buffed the flamethrower heavily (+50% damage) and indirectly buffed EAT and Arc thrower by nerfing chargers. EAT can 1 shot chargers if you hit the head and Arc thrower takes like 8 shots. All blue weapons are viable now except Spear and machine gun. Heavies aren't an issue anymore. Railgun went from being an all-rounder to a designated medium enemy killer (bile spewer etc) still really good for bots, just need to unsafe mode 90% charge it.
    >the only viable strategy at higher difficulty revolves around running like a b***h
    You can still blast through enemies in diff 7 & 8, diff 9 is a meme.

    I haven't kept up with forums or threads or any meta for this game, I just play. That said, I haven't got a clue what primary weapon to use. I liked the sniper rifle (black) until I ended up picking up anything else from a dead friend and realised I was handicapping myself mainly, but nothing ever feels like it's working. I'm currently using the default assault rifle after using one of the autoshotguns for a while cause it just works. I'd happily use the heavy MG if I didn't need rocket launchers to deal with heavy shit constantly.

      Slugger/scorcher/the new heat weapon on page one of the new warbond/defender/breaker are all solid choices, much better than the sniper atm

      >bugs
      Target the legs on anything larger than a warrior. Hit chargers in the forehead with an RR/EAT once. Hit bile titans in the forehead with an RR/EAT several twice, or just use the Orbital Precision Strike/500kg bomb (has to land about center under them).

      >bots
      Target the heads. The AMR, Autocannon, Railgun, and (purportedly) Slugger can one-shot anything up to and including devastators. The PLAS-1 Scorcher let's you shoot the pilots of scout striders through their front armor. Two impact grenades to the vents will kill a tank or cannon tower.

      >bugs
      Slugger is my favorite primary for them, it staggers bugs and stops their attacks. Also really good for popping their heads (2-3 hits to pop the head of a brood commander).
      >bots
      I still prefer the breaker over anything else for them. You'll always fight them mid-range so the accuracy + power of breaker does wonders. I heard some people like taking the Scythe (premium warbond weapon) or the Scorcher for them but idk.

      Primaries aren't meant to deal with heavy enemies, they're supposed to deal with the little shits till you can make space for yourself and use support weapons for bigger enemies.

        The Scorcher is ironically pretty good at dealing with (some) heavies because it counts as explosive. Half mag to kill a Hulk, full mag to kill a Tank/Cannon Tower.

    The bugs and the lack of host migration are valid points, but if you can't keep chargers at bay with practically infinite EATs, you should stay in "hard".
    Also 4 guys with orbital lasers can nuke an entire map of bots at any difficulty.

    DRG > Helldivers

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I had a lot of fun with DRG but Ghostship proved they don't actually know how to further develop their property and kept pushing out changes that made the game worse. Robot Rivals were okay at best, but Rockpox was actually awful and I don't know how the playtesters have them good feedback on that. The only objectively good additions were Dotty missions and pipeline missions.

      EDF>DRG>Helldivers
      BUT
      Both EDF and DRG are kind of a snoozefest to get into. Once you're 15 hours in, they're both better than Helldivers, but for a co-op game that's a fricking horrible threshold. Helldivers is good minute 1 so that's the one my friends play so that's the one I play.

        DRG was a solid experience with novel mechanics and decent subsystems. Shame that they made the game worse over time, like some kind of reverse Fatshark.

        EDF I've never been able to get into. The Japanese humor, the equipment system and progression, the animations and art style - all things that soured my experience trying to play the game.

      The AMR is for dealing with medium to "light" heavy armor. It can two-shot Hulks by targeting the eye and one-shot devastators devastators by targeting the head, but is generally a terrible choice against bugs.

      Would you expect a modern AMR to penetrate a modern tank?
