An explanation of 5 features that gamers need to know about and use if they want to be more successful in DUST 514.
Cool post, I didn't know about the last one and I've been playing it for quite a while. I do wish randoms I squad wirh would set objectives though, so much more points for everyone in the squad.
Didnt think anyone was still playing it
C'mon now...There are tons of people playing it. My corp alone has over 100 people on at most times of the day.
Wow didn't know about the last one....
@andibandit DUST 514 has thousands of people playing.
I would gather his opinions are based off a few times playing and honestly don't blame him. I did the same thing when I got into the beta in April, but decided to give it another go some time later. There is such a huge learning curve that a lot of people just give up before seeing the massive depth that is there. That said, anyone can feel free to PM me for some help. If you're thinking about signing up then I can give a link for free in game stuff too.
What's Dust 514? I know that might sound like a weird question but I've never heard of it before.
Sometimes things fly under the raider, it happens. I'll give explaining it shot. https://dust514.com/ Dust 514 is a F2P MMOFPS set inside the EVE online universe. They fight in space and the Dust players (Mercs) fight for control of the planets. Actually fighting for planets coming soon - http://n4g.com/news/1208474 You get skill points and ISK (in game currency) for playing. SP is used to skill up your merc like in RPGs - buying skills and leveling them up. Buying and leveling up skills allows you to buy better stuff. ISK is used to buy weapons, suits and modules (kind of like perks - +10% damage, +66 shields, etc...) for said suit. When you die all of those things go with you so managing ISK spent vs ISK won is a major mechanic of the game. The suit determines how many of each kind of module you can place on the suit and what role you'll have on the battlefield. Heavies carry big guns and have lots of armor, but are very slow and can't carry any equipment. Assault is the jack of all trades kind of class with everything about it kind of being right in the middle. Scout is very fast with higher shield regen so they can get away quickly. A lot of people use shotguns with a scout suit. Last, but not least the Logistics (my class). The logi is the helper on the battlefield. These suits have more equipment slots so they can revive fallen teammates, repair their armor, and give ammo (along with a few other options) If your gonna DL it then sign up here so you can get some Blueprint Original items when you start, they don't get destroyed in battle. https://dust514.com/recruit...
Thanks for the help, bubble up my friend.
Wait, you could play custom music on this MP? Well, i might have to go back to playing Dust 514 again.
yea i've played all the main mp fps and I can honestly say Dust is one of the better experiences.I have 2 main concerns though. first The game appears to be a little to deep for casual players(my little brother tried it & gave up because of some of the aircraft requirements etc. He'd rather play die rise on COD.Dont ask me why)Secondly how long will this game last cause ps4 and Destiny is right around the corner.This is why in my opinion ps4 should have some form of backwards compatibility .I dont know maybe i should just enjoy the now and not worry about the future.
CCP has said that DUST 514 is something that will surpass current gen consoles. It will definitely find its way to PS4.
