In all seriousness, it is WIP. It is -likely- going to be endless waves with a kill count. Fight until you die.
Nice! As a sidenote, two random Vikings spawned in the first room to the right after the fight when I went a-wanderin’, the one on ground level that’s kind of raised up. Either that or they were just stuck up there wandering in the corners, since I had to kill one with my bow because he refused to come down.
Yeah, I saw those vikings as well. It does seem like they’re just getting stuck :P
… I don’t know what stops you from firing from a distance without a suppressor. It won’t sound like a gunshot because it redirects and distributes the gases that have escaped.
There’s still a ballistic crack, and even to the unfamiliar, that’s a very distinguishable sound. Suppressors only become truly “silent” when they’re slapped on a .22 LR or similar small-bore weapon using subsonic munitions.
Most firearms are used for sport here in the US. Hunting, plinking, etc. We don’t live in the Borderlands universe. And having a gun “for protection” does not mean that it can’t be used for sport. Or vice versa.
What makes you say that guns are used more for crime? If the media was to be believed, they would be autonomous, malicious death-bots intent on the destruction of everything you hold dear. Don’t believe that.
And right now, we really don’t have much gun trouble either. The media likes to latch on to anything containing the word “gun”, but only if there’s been a tragedy related to such. The rest of the world only hears of the mass shootings, because there’s not much else to support. This is a volatile time for the Second Amendment, for whatever reason, and the media wants to go OH MY GOD A BIG BLACK EVIL GUN.
I fear it may follow the course of switchblades. They were outlawed almost entirely due to Hollywood. No, really. They were.
I Believe statistics. Believe me I don’t believe what the media says I studied media for 2 years.
But do you know why the second ammendment was made. There was sorta a war on at the time. If everyone was allowed a firearm those men could be called on and put into action almost immediately with little cost. Though since then America has never been invaded. The second ammendment was a wartime mesure than didn’t get taken away. Also keep in mind that firearms back then had a fire rate of 3 rounds per minute in trained hands.
Between 2010 and 2012 there were 19,000 gun related deaths in the US. Did all of them end up on the news?
And a ballistic crack does nothing. It doesn’t reveal the position of the shooter. As it gets rid of the muzzle flash and muffles the sound so even if you do hear it you can’t get the position of the weapon.
And those mass shootings wouldn’t happen if those people didn’t have immediate access to fully automatic rifles.
Semi automatic weapons are fine. I myself have a hunting fire-arms license. Though I don’t have a rifle anymore becuase I’m poor. And I sold the gun locker too so even If I get a gun I have no where to put it legally. And yes the police do come to your house to check if your guns are in a place where no one can walk in and take it. If someone takes your gun and uses it in a crime you too get charged.
Also in this country you can get a standard firearms license if you are over 16. That allows you to get paintball guns, BB guns, air Rifles and bolt action .22 rifles. If you are 18 and over you can buy the paintball guns BB guns and some types of air guns no license needed. Also you can get endorsements to be able to use other types of fire arms. I have an E endorssment which allows me to own semi auto rifles (including military style as long as it isn’t in current NZ army use) and shotguns. The other civilian endorsement is a B endorssment for target particular pistols (really just a pistol license). The others licenses are for museum owners, film and theatrical directors and dealers. And the director and museum licenses allow restricted weapons including fully auto weapons.
Also you aren’t allowed a license if you have the intent of using it for self defense. Those license are only for sport or target practice.
Though getting a firearms license is still easier than getting a drivers license. A short gun safety course and $204 NZD ($125 without an endorsment) and you have a license.
Is it intentional that if you change directions too fast with your mouse that you stop sprinting? I’ve identified this as the cause of my mysterious “I’m not sprinting anymore, huh” problems.
I can understand why this mechanic is in place. A lot of people could easily just pick a weapon with long reach and kite opponents by doing instant 180 turns after an attack, without losing sprint, thus avoiding any kind of retaliation or counter-attacks when their opponent successfully parries/blocks.
I figured you would lose sprint when they blocked, not just because you turned.
I raise the issue because it happens on snap-blocks, i.e. very rapidly turning wide to one side to block an attack. It’s annoying as hell to not know whether or not I turned far enough/fast enough to suddenly lose my sprint for the counterattack, but yes I see the issue that it is in place for.
Making sprint re-engage at the first available moment simply by holding down Shift would alleviate the frustration as has been suggested around here before.
Found out while the long ranged thrust and the sweep both hit the short/medium ranged poke when holding the spear facing downwards fails to hit almost every time. You can literally almost stand inside someone and it doesn’t register the hit properly.
Sometimes fails to switch the arrow type when playing as archer and using a bow. Will always use the bodkin arrow even when selecting to spawn with a broadhead.
I think the devs already said no to this. SKIP TO 5:24
Yeah I remember that and it’s a fair point, but without any incentive to actually work together, people just chase the kill. Something built-in to encourage teamplay would be great, but there doesn’t have to be gameplay-altering bonuses. Then again, what else is a sufficient draw? Assists counting towards weapon unlocks is a nice step that I’ve seen suggested, but I like the idea of seeing some actual strategy out there instead of the mindless melee.
