Ive been goofing off trying to learn zofia and figured id ask for any advice on her. Im not sure I like her Lmg much to be honest.

I also wanted to share my most recent experience with her because it made me laugh. Whole team fies within moments to a super aggressive defense rush. Literally doesnt make it into the building. The other team is already down by two from people leaving so its 3 v 1. I sneak into the lower floor as i know they are above me i place a clay more under a cieling panel and breach it with my grenade launcher from a distance. Half a second later one of the defenders comes rushing through it and gets splattered by the claymore.

I didnt win the match i only got 2 out of 3 but that claymore trap made me laugh so i figured id share it.

Also had my first match where i got someone to murder a teammate chasing my drone which was real fun.

This whole argument would be pointless if Tachanka shot armored vests from his gun.

∆∆∆ This.

Also just had a match where i spawned in after droning as jackal was immediately flashbanged by ying. I ignored it and started moving along taking out cameras and circling the building since i like to try to track the roamers. At which point 3 of the remaining teammates begin chasing me and shooting me. I avoid their fire without firing back go to hop through a window and they finally tk me. I am then instantly voted out. So yeah 85% of the time super chill game just every so often it turns into a lovely version of lord of the flies.

That being said whoever told me to try suppressor on blackbeard thank you its working out great. And game is super good.

That's really silly on some maps.

Ive only played this game for a few weeks but I think I agree rook is a good starting OP. Simple ability that has a net benefit and then you can anchor or wander slightly off objective and still help out. Its good to have some simplicity when learning because even learning which walls to reinforce can be overwhelming.

Also if one more pubbie reinforces the floor in the objective room so i cant use it to flank im gonna lose my mind. Cielings ok reinforce very important but floors? Why?

It may just be that im new and terrible but my placement matches havent been so bad.

I mean im losing them all but no one has mics so i dont feel like im letting the team down by not talking. And i at least go 1 for 1 with deaths most rounds so thats nice.

I think they were saying placing barb wire at the top of a ladder and then electrifying that rather than the ladder itself. If you can shock ladders thats prrtty cool.

I use the shockwire thing pretty much constantly as i prefer to kill drones early on and im still so crappy with bandit i never know which walls to electrify

So im new to the game and didnt understand the love for fuse since i thought you had to use him on a wall or a cieling hatch but oh my god you can just slap that poo poo on the floor. It is so much more flexible than i first thought (sidenote : i am super dumb)

Anywhere you can shoot through with a gun you can place a Fuze charge. Ying's gadget works the same way too, in addition to being throwable/rollable.

Im gonna be dumb again but yings device will pump flashbangs through a wall? I had no clue i knew they could be "attached" but figured they meant like a mine or something.

Agreed Ela with no impacts would have a lot less options for crushing through walls and that hampers her ability to reposition a bit.

To clarify those are the pistol skins i mentioned are the ones that come with the posh and dignified etc bundles. I dont want to have a steampunk thatcher but i like the artdeco style skin for the pistol so im debating saving towards them with renown but if they are gonna disappear soon i wont bother.

So barring pure luck is there anyway to force pubbies not to reinforce the drat kids room in house.

Also yeah the few maps where i know where to reinforce are few and far between. I tend to prioritize ceiling hatches simply because so many people forget them. But even then i might be loving it up for someone who wants to quickly reposition.

I do wish i could put a mira on a floor hatch i can see uses for that.

Ill admit i never even put that much thought into it. I just noticed that holding the adjacent rooms and taking the walla down in the kids bedroom allowed for way easier fights.

That being said that all seems like super good advice which I will keep in mind.

Oof my luck yesterday was just no bueno. Got crushed in ranked and casual. I would do ok but i keep getting on teams where one guy gets like 5 kills and i have 2 and everyone else dies within seconds of engagement. Which is super abnormal. Didnt help that i dont think i matched into a new game the whole night. It was always a match that someone had bailed on due to the other team just destroying.

Wonder if its just because it was friday or something

Is there some kind of free weekend going on? Because the amount of toxic players is extreme this weekend, every match has been at least 1 cheater or tk'er so far.

edit: Here is a cautionary tale about the mistake that buying the Starter Edition is. It took me 400 hours of playing to unlock all the starting operators and 2 of the newer ones.

Agreed. Got to point earlier where i spawn into a round already started run forward watch as 2 people on team kill other two and then begin fighting each other and was like nah and quit. Next game went great but im at the point where if people are tking im not hanging around. This weekend has been rough.

Id actually enjoy like a mentor queue. Just have people that are over level something be able to queue up as mentors and match them with people below level aomething to play against other mentor groups.

So last night i owned both sides of the hostage huddle coin. In the first match that night I walked in and just plowed the hostage in the face with a full auto burst. Which while funny was very dumb of me.

Later on im playing a hostage match. Its 2 / 2 and half my team leaves when we lose the match before. So I snuggle up to the hostage and when the remaining five members of the other team rush the door i plug one, my buddy drops another and they retreat. But the buck thunks he knows where i am and throws a frag. Oh he knew. And my buddy gets to laugh as the hostage and I fly across the room and we win the game.

So let the lesson be dont shoot the hostage but feel free to snuggle them for a win.

Oh poo poo I forgot that shotguns are actually good in this game. And being able to punch huge holes into walls is a nice bonus.

There is nothing more satisfying to me than tracking someone down as pulse and just blowing them away through a wall with the shotgun.
