Character Creation


Iv looked around on some other message forums and most are answering me back that snipers are unable to do heavy dmg becuase of the armor most people will be wearing. I plan to be a sniper but i dont want to be a support role, i played a cleric to lvl 50 in DAOC, a bard in EQ and a life mage in AC, so im sick of supporting Anyone know a specilization like heavy armor or something that is able to go out on there own and get some BEPs

Any responses i will really appreicate

Thx

Heh, get ready to be flamed. First lone wolf ever to come forward...Anyway..Go for the medium I guess. Allows two rifles, and the most armor next to a MAX. BTW, getting BEPs lone wolfing won't be very effective. The world is huge and it'll be hard to find easy prey.

You don't need to worry about being lone wolfs. There will be lots of them sneaking around and to hunt down, but if u are in a squad u will survive easier and u will be able to conquer bases.

I have heard the following stuffs about the Bolt-Driver:

With 1 shot u can bring down those who wear...
1) Infiltration Exo-Suit
2) Standard armor

With two shots u can bring down those who wear...
1) Agile armor

With 2 or 3 shots u can bring down those who wear...
1) Reinforced armor

But u will need many hits to bring down a...
1) MAX

U can also do 1 hit kills with a knifes secondary attack.

It will not however be effective in close combat situations to use a BD because it takes so long times to reload the bullets. So u better have another weapon available for those situations.

****

I will solo and try to bring down lone wolfs. I will solo to see if I can tactically bring down a squad of 2 or 3 other players and I will group with my friends when they are logged in and form squads to conquer bases in heavy assault.

I will use these certs:
1) Medium assault
2) Agile armor
3) Basilisk
4) Reinforced armor -> Lots of inventory (9x12)
5) Bolt-Driver
...

The rest is a big secret....

No thats wrong, there are no headshots so you won't be able to kill someone in one shot but 2 should probably do the trick on most armors, maybe more for the MAX. Croco might be right but I've only heard shot amounts listed for regular weapons (standard assault certification).

lemme guess, you heard this in the Ofiicial Forum

true. if you really want to get into the thick of the battle, have the medium armor and either meium assault or heavy assault. but what role do you want to play? anti-vehicle or Maggot private ?

Who said anything about headshots?

The Bolt Driver delivers one hit kills on standard armor and the Infultration suit. Even if they are shots to the toe.

If you want to be a lonewolf i'd recomend the saboteur approah... place boomers in bases and blow up enemies as they come out of their spawnroom or when they use the terminals.

inf suit and engineering.. + hacking so you can rsupply from enemy terminals =)

I am gonna be a sniper. I would like a MAX partner to act as a lure. I plan to have medical certs too, to heal us. He lures guys out and takes the hits while I snipe people un noticed. If things get frisky he runs off and I get in the skeeter to cover him then run. Sounds like a plan to me.

Might want to take engineering too so you can repair your MAX bud.

Where did you hear that, they said that one of the reasons they removed head shots was to slow down the already fast combat. Why would the make a one shot kill if they were trying to slow the game down.

If you want to be a lone wolf, I suggest bending over allot.

Being a lone wolf in this game will be tricky

Would make sense, actually. Almost no one will be in standard armor, and infiltration's whole point is NOT to be seen, especially through a scope. The infiltrator would have to be moving fast and the sniper would need a VERY sharp eye.

As dreadful as it sounds, i've "heard" that there was going to be more hit boxes, such as torso, head and others, but they reduced it to head and body only, to cut down on server load, sound plausable? Or do you guys think they will have no headshots what so ever? It seems to me, that they like to focus on the fact that in order to be a good shot, you need to use your eyes, and your hands, so i would think that they want there to be headshots. Just a thought. Lemmie know what you guys think.

Theres no damage modification for hitting someone in the head.. you do the same damage no matter where you hit a person.
