The real question is if this does stop inventories from being wiped what new awesome bug did the patch just introduce.

Sounds like the game still doesnít save a local copy of the inventory. All because they probably donít want people modifying it.

sounds like you know more about the topic than me :-O

I have no idea, techno is only my second character, and I levelled it super fast by paying on WT1, walkzkind around like a god

- theres a few nodes for snipers, don't get these if you are not into sniper
- theres a fat node for rifles, that is obvious pick
- I don't personally like the nodes that say "change the radio that are considered far distance", but I am a certified idiot maybe are uberuseful

You don't really need to make a "build" for leveling. If you really want to, just pick mods on your gear that enhance the skills you use.

I have not seen anything good for techno to gain survavility, it seems technos gain survavility by killing them first. So get whatever make numbers go big?

Cheat engine can change your items. I wouldn't be surprised if alot of the game is just client side.

I have been playing on PS5 since launch, and the only thing I find terrible is having to quit and restart a bunch to get past "Signed In!" when you first launch the game. If you mean "will my inventory vanish", I don't know, but I have been co-opping with friends most days since launch and we still all have them. Anecdotal for sure, but so far it's been fine.

Out here, everything hurts.






Stupid game is fun, but at least once per hour it just hard locks my PC, which is annoying as hell, especially if I forgot to bring up task manager and have it open on the secondary monitor as there is no way to close the locked window except ending task or a restart and when it freezes you can't toggle to any of the other processes behind it. So I can get to the start menu and launch task manager, but if it opens on the same monitor as the game you just can't see it, making it less than useful.

Also it has a bad habit of doing the freeze right at the end of a long mission just before the checkpoint... grr...

Just poking along in WT7 and level 15 or so.

Ok, I did a expedition with 3 technos. They stack with themselves really well. Lots of turrets, everything freezing and getting poisoned and sniped all the time.
We walked with the best score for 5 expeditions until our combined gear was too underpowered to really stay alive. Fun times.

For everyone in expeditions, run Archways of Enoch as much as possible before they go and make the time tighter, it's by far the easiest mission to gold. I just did a gold run on 14 to push myself to CT 15 when I was barely silvering other CT 14 missions.

Yeah this is solid advice, I walked a CT14 archways easily today. The gap between different expeditions is really weird; I couldn't gold Boom Town for anything and since they changed the timer I rarely gold Chem Plant even with the skip. Then there's the marsh one, where for some reason the "lower the pillar" section is ridiculously overtuned. Every other expedition with one of those gives you a wave of enemies and then a gap which lets you lower the pillar in about 3 waves; the marshes one for some reason after the second wave they start spawning constantly. It took me like 8 minutes just on that part on CT14 recently.

Anyway yeah archways is your raise the tier easily expedition slash farming for gold for more drop pod resources and legendaries for now.

Some neat pointers in this including animation cancels with dodges, stun escapes with melee, and stripping armor off chungus mobs by punching them.

What skills and tree should I use to level up a Techno?

Top tree, dipping down to get Exposing Toxin and Marked for Execution. Grab Assault Master, pick everything that ups weapon/toxin damage, ignore Sniper stuff. Skills are Blighted Rounds, Blighted Turret, and typically Cold Snap. Armor stats are Firepower/Close/Long. Gun stats are Weapon Leech/Crit Damage/(Close or Long).

Key armor mods are Toxic Lead and... basically anything to boost firepower and give you enough survivability. Until you get Toxic Lead you can sub in Trick Up The Sleeve (possibly supported by Spare Mag) to give you infinite ammo. Weapon mods are whatever gives you the most damage - you don't need anything in particular.

I was able to play crossplay with my friend for the first time in two weeks. Game is fun although I have no clue what Iím doing with skill points on my technomancer. Ive just been throwing everything into the top tree.

It's hard to articulate when I'm very annoyed but I think nothing gets me hotter than a game that is close to really good but gets sucked down by mistakes that are not only easily avoidable but obvious to anyone who plays games. It'd be easier to move on from a game that just sucked out loud all the time.

Right now my giant bugaboo is: I need a truly absurd number of drop pod resources to upgrade my gear from 49 to 50, having just unlocked world tier 15. 15s are too hard and take too much time to solo right now, especially since if I don't complete them I get zero resources. The number I need is high enough that I basically have to farm 14s. This would be way easier in a group, since some jackass decided they shouldn't scale enemy numbers based on number of players, which I guess is fine if you intended for your endgame to be done mostly in parties, but if that were the case why did you earthshatteringly stupid motherfuckers decide against any form of party chat? This of course also ignores all the problems they've had with multiplayer beyond that, but at least they might have theoretically thought they had that nailed down before release.

I get that I can get in goon groups probably and I'm sure I'll do that to finish this off this weekend but man gently caress off with this poo poo, it's such an easily avoidable series of mistakes especially since other games made them already.

That appears to be the next planned fix (along with inventory restores) assuming this patch works.

After the patch I booted it up for the first time in a while and checked out my first expedition. I died and remembered that it's a time trial where you have to start all over again if you die and I immediately lost interest in playing. If I hadn't got it from Gamepass and had paid $60 I would have been pretty annoyed.

They really should have made them anything else besides a time trial, maybe some kind of scoring thing instead.

Finished all the steam achievements today, I would say my time playing the game has been highly enjoyable.
