I've played I think six games now, and having used everyone once, I think that for the time being, I will be doing a combo of Gibraltar and Lifeline. I have like four kills to my name, and three have come from the latter, so maybe his skillset works with me? I am pissed at myself after losing when it came down to a 3-on-3 match. They killed my two opponents, and then I killed the two right around them. Instead of looking around, I quickly tried to revive one of my teammates, and right when there was just a sliver of time left before revival, I was shot and killed.

After a few more wins, if you don't have mics then you really just want to play for 1-2 fights. The ping system is great for that. But for matches where we keep getting into fights and I get like 5 kills and feel good about my performance, you just can't manage the attention you get from other squads that see you fighting. At least that's been my experience.

I got Caustic at level 23 or whatever it is. I haven't quite figured him out... but I am starting to worry that his abilities sounded better in my head than they do in the actual game. He's been OK for early fights in buildings but I wasn't able to do much in a final four with his ability because it's super dependent upon surroundings. I feel like 10% of the time he would seem incredibly unfair and the rest of the time he just gets picked apart from range, especially with the peacekeeper being what it is

I think the weapons I like end up being the ones everyone likes.

You can use Caustics traps (or even his ultimate if youre desperate) as makeshift cover if you have to.

Had a game last night that really exemplified the difference between this and other Battle Royale games.

My teammates got killed and finished off, so I ran and hid until the other team left.

Waited a bit, and recovered their tags before that same team came right back to try and kill me.

So I ran outside the circle--and because they didn't want me to rez them that badly--they followed me.

I ran in and out of buildings outside the circle, trying to lose them, and stopped in a little cubby on the 2nd floor of a building to heal, before I heard the telltale heavy breathing of Bloodhound. Killed him, but then died to their Gibralter.

Shit was wild.

Had what was easily my best game. It got off to a poor start when a team was going to our initial loot area, so we broke off and went to a side area with shit loot. I told our team to continue moving south, and we were met by an opposing team that luckily weren't close together or they would have been able to finish us off. We took their loot, went up to a super high place and just wrecked havoc as the ring shrinking played in our favor. Despite us having exactly four kills a piece at one point, I was the only one who never managed to be named kill leader, but I got the final kill to close with a game-high 6 kills.

We had over 3000 total damage, 16 kills, and 8-ish revives between us. For as little distance we covered, it was a pretty tense and nuts game as so many players kept "storming our fortress" so to speak.

I have now won with Gibraltar and Lifeline. I feel like trying to win with every class. I've played Bloodhound some, and I think he is the only recon unit at the moment. I will probably throw some money at Respawn's way. I would like for this to stick around.

I have won with every class now I think. Mirage has some really fun voice work imo. Kinda feel like the best team comp is Gibraltar/Lifeline and then either Bangalore or Bloodhound. I mean theyre all decent enough, but that group gives faster revive, healing and 2 AoE Ults or in the case of Bloodhound enemy detection.

had my best personal game despite not winning. Was able to save my entire team from death and kill all 3 guys, somehow killed 3 champions I'm not sure how that works does that mean I killed the champion and his 2 teammates, then ended up in 2nd which was just kind of a crap shoot at the end there I probably blew my ult too early.

Picked up a handful of wins yesterday. I had a few days off. I'd say my favorite time to play is mid-morning. Most teams were OK and sometimes we'd die right away, sometimes we'd win, but typically we'd land, loot/fight, and try to ping what was going on.

after school hours can be dreadful

Got 2 in a row with Caustic and final 2 squads third match. If you use his poison grenade properly you can dictate skirmishes, and if you have a Wraith, there's a lot of opportunity to flank the opponent.

I can't win with Gibraltar to save my life, I think I have 20 matches with him and like a half dozen kills and no wins. I dunno what it is when I play him.

I also struggle with Pathfinder but I think I've only play a handful of times and pretty much every single time I get dropouts or solo jumpers on my team. I also don't like his abilities so I'm just hoping to get carried, basically.

As far as best squads, I think Wraith in the hands of good players can be really brutal so I would think she's gotta be in that conversation.

ended up buying the Founder's pack... I think I might save up for Mirage all the same so I can use those yellow coins on some cool skin or whatever.

Peacekeeper is crazy good. I prefer it and the assault rifles since they down people really fast. Most of the snipers have weird bullet curves to me that I cant get used to. Like one seems to fly upward and then arc downward somehow instead of just firing straight. Its almost like how a golf ball acts after being hit off the tee.

I wish people would quit picking bad landing zones and quit splitting off when we jump. Why even go solo to an area when youre likely to just be gunned down immediately?? I had quite a few matches where somebody broke off when we were jumping only to die in like 5-10s after landing and then quit so you couldnt even try to respawn them. I mean this is a team shooter. You cant expect to 1v3 every enemy group >_>

With just basic mods on it, get within medium range, aim, pull the trigger.

The recoil is so low, and the firerate shreds!

Melee attacks need a buff. I mean theyre basically worthless the second you have any bullets on any gun, but it takes so many punches to down somebody who doesnt even have any armor there might as well not even be melee attacks at all

I feel like it was mostly there for times you land somewhere with another team and none of you have weapons, but the melee is just so awful I dunno why it even exists. Peacekeeper on the other hand with the shotgun bolts and shit just tears through armor and HP to the point where it seems like the best weapon in the game

Oh and to anybody curious theres actually more than 1 melee attack. You can do a jump kick to enemies so its like they put effort into melee attack animations, but the melee itself is garbage :(

Level 16.

If you're jumpmaster and you jump within the first 10 seconds or aim anywhere in the first 25% of the map from where the dropship starts I have no respect for you.

Never works.

Oh, and last match my teammates died and quit immediately after landing on a dropship, and I ended up champion after reach final 3 squads, because the other two teams died from the zone damage while hiding behind cover while I stood on the roof of the building that was literally the only zone left on the map waiting to die because I never got past level 1 shields or helmet.

A wierd mix of pride and shame?

The blue light beam is supposed to signify high tier loot and is sometimes super close though, but otherwise yeah. Just dropping there can be deadly once people know that fact though. Thunderdome and Relay are probably the best places to loot relatively good stuff in peace since theyre on like far corners of the map

Really? I find them both to be pretty hot.

Is that just a difference between console and pc then? Because over about 30 hours of playing on pc with most of it being solo or just a duo I've had maybe one time where i thought about muting someone for being annoying. Pretty much everyone I've ran into either don't use it or use it sparsely to communicate some things more clearly.

You technically dont even need a mic to play. If you hold down the touch pad it brings up a keyboard so you can say stuff. Not ideal while under fire of course, but fine otherwise for communicating. Won a game last night where my team was the last standing. We all had 1-2 kills. It was hilarious

Melee doesn't need a buff haha. It should suck the way it does. You're just asking people to punch you to death.

As long as you stick together and ping, no mic isn't too bad. How many times do I get people off wandering or not pinging and then dying because they just can't stick together or communicate. Or sometimes I ping that I want to loot up one more building, teammates just run ahead and die, often just rushing into an obvious pinch point.

LtM those are fine places to drop but if you don't like them I really hope you are pinging when you aren't jumpmaster. If I see someone ping way away from everything, I understand what their comfort level is and it's almost my fault if they crap themselves if they see an opposing player within the first 5 minutes.

As for another useless feature they put effort into I would say Finishers. Yeah they look neat, but you can be killed while doing them so theyre basically not worth doing most of the time either. Also I cant seem to get a match to start at all right now. Ive been in Starting Server for like 15 minutes even after closing the game out and trying again, but it doesnt say its down or anything so I dunno whats going on
