Thanks to Unruly Amoeba we have this awesome guide for newbies!
I've removed pretty much everything from the OP because it's all handled better and in more depth there.

What is Dust 514?
Dust 514 is a train wreck terrible average fun free-to-play PlayStation 3 first person shooter directly connected to the EVE Universe. The game is the next step in CCP's vision of a universe of corporations and empires at war; where mercenary armies of cloned space marines and armadas of immortal spaceship pilots fight for economic and territorial control on one single shard server. Developed by CCP over the better part of five years, Dust has had an interesting history. Designed terribly and implemented even worse, the game was in such a bad state that CCP threw a Hail-Mary and hired a few high-positioned people to get the game in a playable state. The result? In little over a year the development team has managed to turn the abomination of a game into a relatively deep and fun experience worthy of praise.

If you're looking for something easy with instant gratification you should probably go back to Call of Duty. Dust is not an easy game. Fundamentally designed like EVE, the two games share many common traits and complexities; Both games use a similar skill-point system that allows for personal specialization, and an extremely deep fitting system which allows customization in ways no other genre has before. Every battle in Dust takes place on a real planet in EVE, and EVE ships can bombard your enemies from orbit. When you die, the equipment you were carrying is lost forever. You feel the loss, and more importantly, so will your enemy.


Free to Play
Dust is free to play with micro-transactions available; None of the equipment gives you an unfair advantage, but it does make it that much sweeter knowing the pubbie you just facesomped was bankrolled by his mom's credit card. There are also items that increase the amount of active SP & passive SP you receive, they are nice but not required. Did we mention that you donít have to pay for using voice comms anymore?

Donít have a PS3? First, ask yourself whatís wrong with you. Secondly, thereís a thriving secondary-market for PS3s. If you donít mind having one without a working laser you could probably get one fairly cheaply. Since you donít need the lasers to play DUST this works out well for you. Also, donít worry about it being outdated when the next generation consoles are released. DUST is confirmed for the PS4.


What is Goonfeet?

No but really...why do this?

Deep down inside you have to answer why it gives you pleasure to not only kill a person, see their deaths rise, then revive and kill them again....

You are not getting pleasure from 'the contest'; the procedural correction of weaknesses toward a more precise mastery of a tool.

Don't get me wrong, it isn't even a productive tool. The game is only a tool insofar as it exists to entertain. It is a banal tool in that respect... If you think that you have mastered this tool in its ability to entertain by your 'original' behavior, future forms of addiction have another thing to teach you about mastery.

The reality that you must face is that at best you and your ilk are a Troll. Not the workaday cynic, bored, forum wh*re kind of troll. But the truly warped psyche that charges people an arbitrary and hope-killing tax on enjoying life. You are like the online version of why milk needs an expiration date. You are Rot -- digitally incarnated.

If this warms you on the inside...if this strikes you as quaint and incites feelings of personal satisfaction, connection, and existential enthusiasm, you very well just might be the pathological anti-hero that the video-game critics want so very badly to exist. You very well just might be some kind of twisted sadist. However, it is a tragically supressed sadism. It is one for which you truly need help.

You are very likely neurochemically trapped by the need to exploit, to reduce, and to destroy. Be warned...the dopamine receptors that are feeding this high will deaden. What you get from this habit, lust, and addiction that you may think is creative, or authentic will taper and be found wanting.

Goonfeet is a collection of EVE goons, non-EVE players from SomethingAwful, and blues from the CFC. We range from hardcore FPS gamers to casual EVE players looking to do something in their free time. We have competitive gamers, guys who do nothing but grief teammates (we're notorious for this) while discovering cool bugs like the infinite orbital bombardment exploit that we unleashed on the universe. Unlike the former corporation 'Immobile Infantry', Goonfeet is officially backed as a GoonSwarm Federation entity. We are currently working to make the integration as painless as possible. If you're still in II you're bad and you need to get in Goonfeet yesterday.

When to Squad Up
Fighting with goons is ALWAYS better than fighting alone. For that reason we have people who have promised to run squads at predictable times so you nerds will never need to be alone.

Monday - Friday
USTZ: 08:30 p.m. EST (01:30 p.m. GMT) - Paradoxical Nature (Our CEO)
EUTZ: 04:00 p.m. GMT (11:00 a.m. EST) - Jotuun

To join the squad speak up in Dust.CFC ingame. If you don't see anyone on you have my permission raise a stink on Jabber and in the IRC.

How to join

First off, the entry requirements have changed. We are only accepting SA members in good standing that have had an ACTIVE account for at least 3 months. So J4G shitlords can

1. Connect your PSN account to Dust 514 using one of the handy recruiter links provided below. Signing up this way gets your fellow goons a couple of free items.
2. Download Dust 514 from the PlayStation network store to your PS3.
3. Apply to the in-game corporation "Goonfeet" in-game. FEET! No L you god drat sons of bitches! If you keep timing out, add "CEO Mark Zuckerberg" to your contacts list and apply that way. Please include your PSN_ID with the in game app to save our auth guys some time.
4. Post in this thread with your character name and one of the directors will hit accept on the application.
5. Once accepted into the corp, join the in-game channel dust.CFC

A: Not really a question, but, you are able to use your precious Keyboard and Mouse natively with DUST 514.

2: Does your starting Race and Bloodline Matter?
A: Nope. You can train whatever suit you desire, without consequence. The only thing itíll set is what system your apartment is in at the start, your portrait, the appearance of your living quarters (each race has their own) and your starting NPC Corp.

3: My mouse sensitivity is made of tar and rear end, how do I fix it?
A:

Yeah, things to check are aim assist OFF, mouse smoothing OFF, dead zone on the move to ZERO, and also make sure the controller X/Y sensitivities are equal. I play at 80 on the mouse sensitivity setting. Not sure what I have my controller sensitivities to though.

CEO Update 1-1-2014

Paradoxical Nature posted:



CEO Update for Jan Ď14
It has been some year, hasnít it? As a corporation, we have undertaken a mass exodus, bad patches, really bad patches, and our own burn-out with a game that seems to move forward at a snailís pace.

Yet, we are still here and we arenít going anywhere.

Today, Uprising 1.7 is live and has breathed new life into a stale game. DUST 514 is still not the game that we want it to be, but this patch has shown us the direction it is going. It was enough of a signal to make us sit up, wipe away the cheeto dust, and take notice.

This update is about where we came from, the road ahead, and how you can help build our future.

For our players who are on walk-about or those who are curious about DUST 514 and the experience with Goons, to steal a phrase from our sister game,

ďThere has never been a better time.Ē

The Road Ahead
The road ahead is strangely optimistic for our terrible game. Faction Warfare 2 has proven to be interesting and even fun. The second iteration to Planetary Conquest might follow in the footsteps blazed by Faction Warfare; breathing new life into that as well. Thereís also a Fanfest on the horizon, which might hold more genuinely good surprises. But, we need you back, squading up, and helping us harvest the tears which are ours by birthright.

Now is the time to get on and playing and Iíll go over some of the reasons to do so.

Back in Black: SPERG Alliance & the Red-Headed Stepchildren Coalition
After we wiped the cheeto-dust from our chests we realized we wanted to take a more active role in leading ourselves. To that end, weíve left TopMen alliance and rejoined our first home, Special Planetary Emergency Response Group <SPERG>.

This allows us greater autonomy and flexibility in these fluid times. Joining us in <SPERG> is Enlightened Infantries [ENL-D], a corp spun off from Enlightened Industries [ENL-I] a corp in Goonswarm Federation <CONDI>. They are a new corp, so everyone is encouraged to show them the ropes offer them a hand, and help them shoot the pubbie menace.

We still enjoy a strong relationship with our friends in TopMen and have formed an informal (well as informal as an informal arrangement is) coalition with them, that Iíve nicknamed the Red-Headed Stepchildren Coalition. TopMen invites us to assist them in Planetary Conquest matches and general bike riding. In addition, we still retain our services at dust-gents.com. In exchange, they are still welcomed in our squads and any shenanigans we might get into in the future.

Faction Warfare
Some of you who are playing have noticed that weíve been working with our CFC FW friends, I Whip My Slaves Back and Forth <J4LP> and running Amarr FW with them in the skies. We will be continuing to do that and I want more of you jerks showing up to help. Itís a lot of fun seeing the enemy team slump when they realize you have OB support and they donít.

Yes, that means officially the SPERG Alliance is Amarr FW.

This does not mean that you are not allowed to go do Gallente, Caldari, or Minmatar. If you want to grind out the LP for your shinies, you will do so knowing that you will not receive air support and it will not be our initial focus when forming up.

J4LP and SPERG will be setting more standard times for Pilots to hook up with Mercs on the field, potentially around our US prime.

Introducing the Black Ops SIG
Those of you familiar with Goonfleetís structure will know about Special Interest Groups. For those who arenít a quick word about them. These are coteries of individuals focused on a specific mission that you can come and go as you please. The Black Ops SIG will be responsible for figuring out the best methods and practices for griefing, awoxing, and general all around tear-production that puts bugs in the pants of e-honorable console pubbies.

Iíve tapped Breakiní Stuff and Sammus 420 to head it up and theyíll be heading squads and doing their thing. Get in touch with them if you want to join their holy mission.

Education Ministry
The Education Ministry is still recruiting writers, editors, and designers for the Newbie Guide. In the future, Iíd like to see the publications released to expand to a quarterly Bitter Vet guide. Weíre also looking to recruit and train new Squad Leaders and get the general goon used to ordering their fellow goons around.

8:30 PM EST/EDT Squad
I run a squad every night starting at around 8:30 PM EST. Show up, get in, and letís go ride bikes. Consider it a standing operation where we do whatever strikes our fancy that mostly ends in people getting their faces smashed in.

World of Tanks 514
Get your asses in a Tank. In 1.7, in an attempt to give vehicles more of a defined role, vehicles got buffed. In true fashion, they went too far in doing it while at the same time nerfing Anti-Vehicle equipment and weapons into the ground. It is up to us Goons to abuse this until CCP fixes it.

You can have a tank with 0 SP. Hereís how you should fit it:

Anti-Tank Sniper (0 SP)

Sica (MLT) (77K ISK)

MLT Rail Gun Mod
MLT Rail Gun Mod

MLT Light Repair

MLT 120mm armor railgun

Soma (MLT)

One More Thing
Iíd like to take this moment to thanks Dex for his work as CEO for our little corporation that could. His extraordinary insight and his general knowledge of both games have gone far in our growth. He has stepped down as CEO to pursue other interests, agreeing to remain active as the Alliance and Corporation Executor. He has our thanks and everyone should follow his twitter @HVACRepairman

Iím taking his place as CEO while Samahiel handles Corporation Management from his EvE Character since DUST characters do not have the tools necessary. So, if we screw up, itís my fault -- for real this time.

Just a note, it's more important to have a decent fit than a decent weapon. I've been doing very well in my Proto Medium Frame with only AR Operation 1. You honestly only "need" to go to Advanced level, which isn't much of an SP investment...unless you're new.

I typically run with the EXO-5 mass driver myself, It's only when I'm up against stiff resistance or a really persistent opponent that I pull out the proto "Freedom" mass driver. The difference is noticeable, and can tip the scales in your favor. But, you definitely care more when you lose a couple to being dumb.

Oh, I'm not trying to discount better weapons. They're better for a reason. It's just that with my Exile (which, admittedly, is basically a less-damaging GEK), I often fight and kill Protosuits without much of an issue.

Also, the T1 Swarm Launcher is pretty good now. If you need AV, drop 12k SP into Swarms and pick up Hacked EX-0 AV Grenades, which require no skills.

T1 Swarms are awesome, I was using one the other day to absolutely ruin the hopes and dreams of the enemy. We had them bottle necked and they kept calling in milita LAVs to try to break out. My swarm launcher didn't even let those trucks reach ground.

That's always delicious. If you time it right, you can nail those jeeps just as they hop in, scoring a kill as well.

Also, ramming a dropship with an LAV is a great way to kill it. I blew up a blue dropship that way, dude was pissed. I was pleased.

Good fittings can help you loads. My Advanced Caldari Logistics fit costs me about 35k per fitting, has nearly 400 eHP (90 Armor, rest shields), with a crazy high recharge rate and crazy low recharge delays. It doesn't always hold up in a fight (especially with my godawful aiming skills), but being able to disengage from a fight and recharge can give me a huge edge in a fight. It's very nice. It's also worth noting that in Uprising it feels like they've lowered the power level on a lot of things. While it's offputting because so many people are in Prototype suits, a lot of the gear feels weaker. Nanohives in particular got hit hard, and suck rear end until you get to advance stage.

I didn't know there were Militia AV grenades now. Still, it's probably better to grab some of those ones that require no skills and only cost two-thousand-something ISK (and are probably supposed to cost AUR, but whoops).

Also I put somewhere around 2 mil SP into tank stuff and I have a fairly effective (at least in relation to my ability to pilot it) Gunnlogi with over 6000 shields and an active hardener, pubbies can't fit for poo poo.

I'm starting to suspect that restocking from your own Nanohive uses it up way faster than if it just restocks teammates. The other day when I dropped one of the Advanced ones (the non-triaging one) and kept getting WP from it for almost the rest of the match, and I was surprised because when I drop them for myself they seem to run out around the time I'm fully restocked.

Nope, Swarm Launchers are Light. If you can hold an AR, you can use a Swarm.

I don't think that happens. The K-2's have 72 charges that restore like, 30% of your gear I think? So a grenade ends up eating three or four, your guns eat up a shitload, and some other poo poo. But it also removes a charge whenever it fills you up at all, so getting 1 bullet is the same as the max it will restore per charge. SO if you're standing on it and shooting it, it'll eat right the gently caress through it.

Doing some maths with Mass Drivers, btw, makes me think that the K-2's restore 1/6th of your max ammo per tick. My Exo-5 gets three rounds per tick, and I can carry a max of eighteen (six + twelve).

It was a few of us on IRC, foot clan just seemed a better nickname than little ants since Cerebral was highly unlikely to relinquish that name.

Edit - thats not to say it wasnt planned out, just the posters and propaganda I've been making has been influenced by the IRC chat. I didn't even know people were talking about Goons in Dust at Fanfest other than Soarer and I.

Its pretty mixed from what I can tell, which is a good thing as that means there will be EVE vets who can help new guys to DUST/New Eden figure things out and possibly provide some sort of support once DUST gets NullSec added.

I am glad people appreciate it. It wasn't my idea but that Shredder is Uncle Sam poster is fabulous.

SG-1 was only good when it was on Showtime, when they went to SciFi it just became trash.

Also can someone give me a rundown on what to expect for the "launch" tomorrow? I know Scrambler Rifle is in there somewhere, but a bunch of links are blocked at work.

You just couldn't put up with a season without Daniel Jackson.

So we're getting new weapons tomorrow:
-Scrambler Rifle
-Flaylock Pistol
-Plasma Cannon

Then we're getting Planetary Conquest, which looks pretty cool.

Also hopefully we're getting more bug fixes, buffs, and nerfs. And we can petition for a skill point change if we so desire.

I think that's all.

Yeah its one of the first things you find if you search "Foot Clan" in Google Images. I know I did an altered version with GoonFeet in it but it was decided the original was far better.

The image I suggested as a patch/sticker or whatever is also a TMNT Foot Clan logo/propaganda piece.

I couldn't put up with most of the series towards the end. The Orai weren't horrible but they seriously rushed that story arch.

Is the Flaylock the hand cannon/grenade launcher CCPJian was overly excited about during his keynotes?

Honestly, I haven't really watched the last two seasons. I couldn't bring myself to continue after we lost RDA.

Unlike adult ducks, ducklings do not have waterproof down. An oil gland near the tail of adult ducks provides the waterproof cover.

Yep. The people who played at FF reckoned it was a bit OP, so it might not be as amazing when we finally get it tomorrow. If it's amazing, I'll probably have one as my standard sidearm.

I played Uprising at Fanfest, but gently caress if I remember that gun.

On the Nanite Injector, we're aware of the location mismatch between the "corpse" and the location you need to use the injector and it's on our list of things to work on.

Technically, the problem is that the "rag doll" plays individually on each client, it's not enforced into a specific location by the server. This saves some processing and network time and makes the rag doll behave better when falling against walls and other objects on your machine. Thus, the server only knows the death location, but at the same time it's only the server that is allowed to confirm that you've successfully revived someone. Nevertheless, we should be able to make this behave better.

Cheers,

This is awesome. I never use the needle because I get tired of trying to figure out where the hell the dude actually died. This usually turns into me getting blasted while I run around looking at the ground like a jackass.

Also, for you triage guys, I learned last night that if you're actively repping a dude that is under fire you get the triage war points and war points for guardian.
