Some good tips, hopefully it stops all of the noobs from dying so much.
I can't recommend the melee upgrade enough with the brawler powerup. You get two hits with it and on standard deathmatch, you can get the materials really quickly. Its basically one-hit kill as the article says and I've been able to go 3v1 against players with it. Also, I wouldn't recommend wasting time crafting medkits. There are midkits located around every supply point (iirc) and what I've noticed is that if you're actually running low on health and you go to a supply plint, you get a medkit from them anyway (on the deathmatch mode anyway). The proximity grenade thing (I forget the name) can be utilised in some cheap but effective ways. When you're outnumbered, you can place one next to where you're fighting and once you're down and players try to execute you or take parts off your corpse, they can get killed by your cheekily placed mine. Also, don't underestimate the stupidity of other players. Use downed players to lure enemy combatants trying to rescue their mates. A good team will communicate so will warn teammates about the 'trap' but I've noticed that not many people communicate as much so its a case of the blind leading the blind...to their deaths. The bow is brilliant if you have a decent aim. Stealthy, two shots= down or one headshot. I have turtle beach PX5's and I've struggled to hear the direction people shoot arrows at me. It takes a while to unlock but you can use the custom classes. Oh and the custom classes are quite good. The one where you get the military sniper is useful because it takes AGES to unlock it and the gun is brilliant. I can go on but the game has a lot of depth and the varied weapons all seem to serve a purpose.
The most important tip is to play with friends, I'm tired of losing because of COD like teammates
No, you can get the Sniper Rifle off the bat with the Sniper loadout...
@the troll whisperer That's what I said.
Haven't jumped into multiplayer yet, but these tips will definitely help out.
Kill them all
Don't run into battle.
Dont split off from your team UNLESS you really can handle 3-4 people by yourself. This isnt to you specifically, just had a great set of matche except this one guy would run off and basically sign his own death warrant.
I hate those people! I have seen people fend off 3-4 enemies (in fact, I've done it myself), but it's a rarity, even against inexperienced opponents.
Haven't had a chance to jump in online but these tips should be of good use.
I managed to stay fed for 24 weeks :)
The best advice you could give for last of us multiplayer is use a mic.
Didn't try the mp yet and not planing on doing it.
You really should at least give it a look. It's not for everyone, but you might fall in love.
I wouldn't of thought this article would interest you then.
If you aren't planning on playing it then why add the "yet" in there?
Bow n arrow represent!
I give mad props to all the players that can rock the bow.
Here's my tip, play with a team who know the meaning of teamwork otherwise you wont win.
Two tips that won't help you in the grand scheme of things, but are still worth mentioning. 1. It seems that you have to be crouched to heal your teammates and pick up items from toolboxes. 2. You still show up on your enemy's listen mode whether you are jogging (moving without L2 or while crouched) or crouch-walking (unless you have Covert Training 2 or 3 active). So in some situations, it may behoove you to not crouch-walk in order to get places more quickly. I only mention this because some players play the entire game crouched and it slows them down.
You can pick up standing up, it's just that you have to face the camera down toward your feet and look at the item to pick up.
I love the multiplayer and its very very engaging. I mean I lost about 4 hours into it last night. If you are solo (like i was) and go against a group of guys with Mics, you are pretty f#$ked.
For anyone playing this MP and going rambo style... Stop it. All your doing is making your team lose and pissing them off. I just played a match and lost solely because of some dick head that kept running off by him/her self and getting killed every time. He had 10 deaths by the end.
completely agree.. Thats why i like this MP so much, it makes you have to work as a Team. If you are stuck with people without a mic.. your are done.
