I really love the R-301 Carbine and the Rampage or Flatline. The optics also look awesome. Between the R-301 and the G36C in CoD, I don't know what it is but I love their aesthetic.

The R-301 is I'm pretty sure what the devs use as a baseline in the game. Learn it, love it, it's a great gun that will treat you well.

Lifeline is a very good character for new players. You can still be helpful and contribute even if your mechanics aren't great and she doesn't have any movement abilities to teach you bad habits early on.

It’s worth mentioning that Lifeline is useful enough that decent teams will focus her hard. She’s got great support kit but good teams are going to go out of their way to murder her first.

There's only one thing more satisfying than bonking someone for 10 damage with a frag grenade.

Thanks for the tips everyone. I don't want to spend any money on the game but there's in-game currency you can use is that right?

I've gravitated so far towards Lifeline, the trick where she can have a bot revive someone while you avenge their shame is so useful.

Bloodhound was my training wheels since the wallhack makes up for not having developed proper situational awareness yet. It's also an ability you can easily press accidentally or at a bad time without consequence. Just don't get reliant on scan so that it ruins your play on other legends... I moved on to Caustic and Octane since they are also easy abilities to use without consequence, and then learned Horizon and Gibraltar where when to press Q matters a bit more.

But legends don't matter as much as winning gunfights so really just best to play a bunch and get in a lot of fights.

If I'm trying to improve I also take every opportunity to be jumpmaster and never relinquish. Since a fair number of people will pass it on you can be jumpmaster about 50% of the time and it helps learning maps and controlling the situation you find yourself in at the start.

This. Also, it's usually faster to just grab everything as fast as possible and then drop whatever you don't need while you're moving to the next spot.

This is why my inventory usually ends up being only nades, shield cells and maybe a stack or two of ammo.

I'm really good at nades now, at least!

When choosing what legends to buy first, ignore advice and just pick who seems fun. The worst two buys I made (rev and wattson) were based on recommendations from this thread and curiosity about playstyle, respectively

A. Good point just buy legends that look fun.

B. In what world is Revenant not fun. I challenge you to find something more satisfying than scaling the sheer side of a building behind a team that thinks their safe and destroying them.

To be clear this is pretty normal for a patch day, especially with the event, new heirloom and the Rampart buffs. I was more surprised that the start of Season 10 went so smoothly.

Tried to get some arena challenges done. 2v3 and 1v3 so far. Why is it that the enemy always gets the full squad? I don't think I've ever been on the full side of that equation.

They’re joking that this little lore thingamajig on Olympus is a whole town takeover since it’s Bangalore-related. The new Rampart location is on Worlds Edge.

The “still a good place to go in the mid-late game” is because you can buy kitted-out weapons there, but you need materials gathered from other areas.

PLEASE TELL ME (and James Corden) TO EAT SHIT


no i think that's probably octane. we had an ongoing argument who would say a heater gamer word between rev and caustic, and then they had to edit out one of caustic's lines that had a racial slur in it sooooo
