Y'all playing Factions? Anyone else absolutely loving it?!

Jackhass1769d ago

I am, but I'm terrible!

I started out that way too. I'm pretty bad at multiplayer games. Give this one some time, it all sinks in. I found that the more I attempted to play it like the single-player campaign, the better I got. If you haven't tried it yet, try the default Stealth build you can choose to go with. When I started out I chose to custom build a rifle build with some crafting perks and I sucked. The second I decided I was going to sneak around and take people out as silently as possible I noticed a change in how well I was doing.

I can't get enough best tps since confrontation

RandomDude6551769d ago

I wonder if Zipper folk found their way to Naughty Dog.

*I know they didn't make that one.

Yes and loving it! My favorite tactical game since SOCOM 2.

My tip is make sugar bombs instead of the explosive bombs. They are extremely handy for a kill or a getaway.

thirtyandnerdy1768d ago

Awesome tip, I'll have to try it. I haven't tried them too often-- is it true that if you throw them directly at opponents you can run in and shiv them for an insta-kill?

creatchee1768d ago

Yes. And you don't have to get them from behind. Also, they are stunned in the blast and smoke for a short period.

Loving the MP so far. My only complaint is there are only two modes, seriously?! They could have made a co op mode with infected or a mode where you fight over supplies/territories.

Inception1769d ago

Yeah i love the MP and i think they will add new mode & map with DLC. Can't wait fighting clickers with my friends (hopefully).

madara0sama1769d ago

Oh yeah fighting clickers would be awesome. Boss wave with those fat guys would also be awesome.

ArchangelMike1768d ago

yeah whats with having only two modes? where's the co-op horde mode? Where's the last man standing infected mode? (any one remember vampire mode from time splitters - good times ;)

The MP is good , but certainly not "great". The over the shoulder view is terrible and I hope it doesn't come back next gen. It's the same view that ruined Socom 4(along with other things) a run button, the fact that you can't shoot unless you hold L1, which makes your looking around to aim at anything close almost impossible at the speed it works. Oh yes and the bullet sponge enemies, takes about 5-10 shots to kill with a 9mm.

It could use a lot of reworking.

Great tips! I need to get this game soon.
