Surviving Multiplayer in The Last of Us

A list of some quick tips to get you started in The Last of Us' multiplayer mode, Factions. It's all based on the writer's experience playing until the wee hours of the morning, wherein he went from frustrated and confused to becoming an actual asset to his team in a matter of hours. Enjoy! (PS3, The Last Of Us)

Y'all playing Factions? Anyone else absolutely loving it?!
Jackhass  +   963d 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 wonder if Zipper folk found their way to Naughty Dog.

*I know they didn't make that one.
creatchee  +   963d ago

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.
thirtyandnerdy  +   963d 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?
creatchee  +   962d 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.
Inception  +   963d 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).
madara0sama  +   963d ago
Oh yeah fighting clickers would be awesome. Boss wave with those fat guys would also be awesome.
ArchangelMike  +   963d 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 ;)
Sizzon  +   963d ago
the MP is Great :)
Merrill  +   963d ago
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.
jagstatboy  +   963d ago
Great tips! I need to get this game soon.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   963d ago
I'm like Mo'fkn robin hood with that bow.

Wasn't sure about the MP at first.
Then i hated it.
Now i can't stop playing it.

It has such a different pacing and feel compared to everything else out there right now.Just takes some getting used to.
ltachiUchiha  +   963d ago
Definitely agree. If your a fan of gears of war & socom multiplayer then this is a multiplayer you will love & it feels fresh & unique because of the crafting system, it just makes it feel more realistic & its intense, my advice & tip for all new players, stick with other players & you will have a better chance of survival & enjoying the multiplayer more also remember collecting items to craft is a big part to giving your team a better opportunity to win. Its not like call of duty where u just run in and can take out 3 or 4 ppl at a time. Its definitely an underrated multiplayer that has potential to grow & only get better when more modes & content is added. My hopes for the next naughty dog game lies well with multiplayer because i think they have finally figured it out & it only means its a good thing because u rarely find games that deliver on both single player & multiplayer & the last of us does just that. Thank u Naughty Dog for delivering an all around masterpiece. Job Well Done.

I started out playing it like Uncharted lol
I soon learned if you play that way you're dead meat.
claterz  +   963d ago
I hope they add a mode where we can play as the infected! Imagine a team deathmatch mode where 1 person is a clicker with impaired vision (just like in SP) who has to rely on sound to catch other people. Lets say if someone made a sound it could activate listen mode for the clicker for a couple of seconds. Then if the game went on for too long the clickers could start turning into bloaters! lol.

Naughty Dog have missed lots of amazing opportunities with the MP IMO. When they said it would be like "nothing we've seen before", I wasn't expecting another generic deathmatch mode with boosters -.- Oh well it's still pretty fun.

Completely agree, I've only played a bit of the MP and I quite like it but they could've made it truly special, maybe they'll do more unique modes with DLC.... I hope.
ltachiUchiha  +   963d ago
I think it wouldve been cooler if they also added a horde mode. I think they will add it to their next dlc. Or just add clickers & runners all around while having these modes we have now lol. That would be crazy.
SageHonor  +   963d ago
It reminds me a bit of Socom. Looking to add some people

My PSN is Bollin16
Add me so we can party up!
MonChiChi  +   963d ago
Online is great, wish we had one more mode that lasted longer a round and doesn't affect our virtual clan's. I got dc'd one game and my clan got raped.
Hazmat13  +   963d ago
not my cup of tea. gonna play a "New Game +" then start going up on the difficulty on Last Of Us. got it for single player only.
Allsystemgamer  +   963d ago
It's like socom and gears. But I'm LOVING the bow. I rarely miss a shot. This game is all around amazing. Too bad there's only 2 games modes. Could have done an attack and defend where one faction has to steal supplies
