Oh man, this freaking game. Gotta love some Space Rambo Ninjas.

What's a good upgrade from the Braton Vandal? I love the way it handles but would like a change of pace.

If you want to try something different, pick up a shotgun. Hek if you have the mastery level, sobek or strun otherwise.

Sobek's Mastery Locked too. I'm only rank 2 in, like, a good 20+ hours of play so I'm not exactly sure how the hell I'm supposed to get there anytime soon.

Strum isn't really impressing me either. Maybe it's just because it's a new gun and my Braton was rank 28.

Most weapons aren't too impressive early on. They start to shine after you get a couple mods into them.

As for increasing your Mastery rank, that comes from leveling up gear (warframes, weapons, sentinels), so if you're holding onto anything that's rank 30 that you don't really like, equip something else (but of course, don't walk around with everything low-ranking, either).

I dunno, the Ignis is about the only rifle I've used so far that I like at least as much as shotguns (haven't made the Flux Rifle yet), and I don't play enough shooting games to feel that I have a preference for shotguns, so I don't know if I would go so far as to say you have to really like them to want to use them.

I've been away for awhile; is the ignis actually good now?

Oh yes. As mentioned, it totally ignores any obstacles. I've got mine on its third forma, and I only made it a week or so ago (I don't play a whole lot, either).

Yeah, meant survival. I did not realize it's not a mandatory mission, I just finished the first boss and I didn't see any other missions past it unlocked but survival, I'll have to look again. Right now I have pretty much nothing so that explains why it's so hard to do.

If you've beaten a boss, you should be able to move on to the next planet.

Coldbird posted:

To my knowledge, it hasn't even been mentioned as an issue. They either don't know it's an issue, have tabled it for later, or - if you ask me, most likely - they know about it but fixing it would require a serious overhaul of their netcode.

They need to do that for a number of other reasons anyway, but it's probably a big project that could impact a ton of things beyond that one power,

Ok, that makes sense.

Dual Zorens are also great if only for their utility aspect as a means to helicopter around the map at ridiculous speed.

They're especially fun when you get that occasional, inexplicable super-boost and suddenly you're at least twice as far as you'd thought you'd be, or pin-balling off of some obstacle.

I love my Rhino so loving much. I just got done leveling a Nova, and while I enjoyed the combination of maxed Null Star + Carrier w/Sweeper meaning I could walk through the levels I'm trying to farm without farming a shot, nothing compares to just flat-out ignoring almost any enemy.

Crowbear posted:

Ok, so if I wanted to carry on with rifles instead of shotguns what would the next step up from a Braton be?

Most people will recommend the Boltor, but I never really enjoyed it. I didn't feel like it was doing much damage, even at rank 30 with a potato, and it didn't seem to be pinning mobs to anything very often. However, that's likely the only worthwhile rifle you can get before you can build a Soma, so I guess that would be the one to go for.

Feenix posted:

Is there something I can do to increase starting ammo capacity?

Ammo drum is basically it. You can also get a Rifle Ammo Mutation mod which will allow you to convert some ammo of a non-rifle type to rifle ammo.

Got a weird issue on the PS4 version (or just some ui nonsense that I can't figure out), I've been doing Jackal runs for Rhino blueprints and I'm trying to sell off some excess helmet ones for quick credits, but whenever it goes into the prompt asking me to select how many I would like to sell there's no way to get it to ok the amount. I can't hit ok or cancel, all I can do is press circle and back out of the prompt while doing nothing, anyone else encountering this?

Yeah, someone earlier in the thread mentioned that the selling multiple things bit of the UI is broken for the PS4. Sorry.

Wow, fantastic. I just tried to do the 8->9 test, and accidentally threw a decoy right away instead of hitting invis. Decoy kept me getting detected until I had 0 tries left, at which point I became visible and was immediately spotted.

As for the update, how do we actually equip and use the scanner? It doesn't show up in the gear list like an ammo pack would, and I couldn't find a key binding for it. Does it replace a weapon or something?

Buy it in the market, equip it in a gear slot, bind a key to that gear slot. There's no reward other than a badge (and battle pay, of course).

I figured something like that, but after I bought it, it wasn't showing up anywhere. I guess I'll try again; it's only 500 credits.

I'm having strange things happen with Stomp and downed enemies - Stomp seems to be able to target a limited number of mobs now and the range seems shorter. With enemies that are either ragdolled or knocked down, I've noticed that I can still pump ammo into them and get damage numbers popping out until my magazine runs out. Is anyone else seeing these?

So I was wanting to farm Jackal for Rhino parts, but everytime I get in there's some random debuff like having no shields or a time limit where you have to kill enemies to get more time. I heard someone mention nightmare mode a few pages back, is this what I'm experiencing and if so how do I turn it off? ( I'm on the PS4. ) Doesn't seem to be any way to change it back.

Yeah, sounds like nightmare mode. And until U11 hits for PS4, you can't turn it off, you can only wait until it goes away (a few hours?).

Also if anyone is stuck on the mastery rank 9 test, I was kinda amused to find that you can use psychic bolts to instakill all the enemies from range and it's silent so they'll never detect you.

Pierson posted:

Yep. Very little you can do about sentinel levelling. If you need need need the mastery from them you can go to cyath or some other mobile defence with a full squad and level it via squad exp but it's still slow.

Helter Skelter posted:

Weapons take something like 300k XP to get to 30, while frames/sentinels take around 900k or so. So yeah, that's normal.

Thanks. This being said, is Shade worthwhile at all? I only have Ghost on there currently, and it seems like it doesn't work too reliably. Sometimes it'll cloak me before I'm up in a dude's face, but other times I can be standing benignly next to a mob, not being cloaked.

hooah
Feb 6, 2006
WTF?

Helter Skelter posted:

Yeah, Shade is pretty decent. Ranking up Ghost will let it activate farther away from enemies. Something to keep in mind is that it does have a short cooldown of 5 seconds or so, and it breaks when you attack with a weapon (but not if you activate one of your powers). So if it tries to activate while you're mid-stab or something, it'll break immediately and restart the cooldown.

You'll also want to put Ghost in the top-right slot (put Guardian in the top-left) since sentinels prioritize their ability usage based on their placement. If you put your sentinel's attack mod (Revenge, in this case) in the top-left slot, it'll prioritize shooting over cloaking you or restoring your shields, which is obviously not optimal.

I didn't know about the cooldown, but I knew about sentinel priorities and all that. It just seems that I'm often not being cloaked when I should. However, I've noticed that if I'm firing my Ignis, he'll sometimes cloak me while I'm still firing, as if he only cares about decloaking for the initial attack.

Has anyone else lost the little red + on the minimap when a squadmate goes down? I was doing a survival run on Saturn yesterday hoping for a Cell or two, and when I got the message that someone went down, I had to swivel around, looking for their bleed-out bar to actually find them.

Also, have the Grineer Bombards' missiles always been homing?

Also, had the Stalker target a squadmate in one of the event missions last night. Holy poo poo, the rear end in a top hat took everyone down before he left. He was going through my Iron Skin as fast as I could cast it.
