It doesn't take much to screw up an entire team in a multiplayer shooter like Killzone 3. If one player insists on being dumb then the whole squad suffers.
Great read. Very fun, but True.
This is so true, people are so quick to jump on the hate wagon and criticize KZ3 Multiplayer after an hour of play, have you ever thought that it was YOU'RE FAULT as YOU suck at the multiplayer part of this game? Meh, I've been playing KZ3 Multiplayer for 12 hours STRAIGHT, and boy do I love it. :D
damn 12 hours straight are you close to full rank yet im only 6 or so hours in?
This was just a fun read, not meant to explain why people are complaining.
Damn, sorry man, but you have a life? 12 nonstop hours playing videogames isn't normal. Well, or so i think.
"We'll be playing an objective-based game and notice some teammate is basically camped up in a corner with a sniper rifle racking up kills. What? Why? You're not doing anything. Your kills are good for nothing but e-peen. And we're still not impressed." Best quote of the article!
Have you ever thought that maybe they dont suck and the game is not as good as Killzone 2. They made Killzone 3 feel way to much like every other damn shooter. Just like COD. It's a shame really because the game could have been so good, but I guess that happens when you want to make those COD fags come tag along to a beast game that isnt. KILLZONE 2 all the way. BOOM!
Teamwork or GTFO!
I wasn't too bad at the Beta, I ended up in the top 5 most of the time per game. Teamwork isn't as essential in this as it was in KZ2 imo. One person can kill three much easier in this.
@ Kon Damn, sorry man, but you have a life? 12 nonstop hours Trolling the comments isn't normal. Try saying something sensible for once in your life, We all play games beyond normal hours.
@DarkBlood I got the game at 3PM GMT (I'm from the UK), I got off around 30 minutes ago and now its 3AM. I've realized that operations give me the most EXP, I'm now Lieutenant II. I think you can check out my KZ3 stats on my profile: http://www.killzone.com/kz3... It should work. =/
ah ic i havent touch any of the other modes yet i just been playing warfare for that 6 hours or so and i gotta say its really fun getting killstreaks and its awsome brutal meleeing 3 people in a row that one time but i forgot lol this will be the shooter i'll be playing alot on my ps3 equal to reach on my 360
Good strategy. Would have to disagree with number 4 though. If you kill someone or even just trading bullets with them away from the objective point then you are equally preventing them from entering the fray. If you can get a two man team to lay down fire in a v avenue away from the objective then you can funnel any remaining enemies into what they think is a safe route while your objective team knows where the enemies will be coming. Simple strategy really... you get those people that keep coming back and get killed and then when you do get someone smart enough to take the alternate path then the objective team is primarily focused on those routes to keep enemy from objective.
"Are you actually concerned that somebody is going to play a medic in an online shooter? Let alone a medic with Triage+ leveled up? Go sit on the bench" *Looks ashamed of self* I does play as medic.... :(
Some maps medic is almost needed to actually help win the match, since 3 lets all the jobs open out the gate everyone wants to be sniper but very few want to raise people to keep the fights going. I play medic on some maps because everyone screams for one but doesn't have the willpower to use the job. Plus I like the idea of getting up when someone shoots me so I can kill them easily
'Damn, sorry man, but you have a life? 12 nonstop hours playing videogames isn't normal. Well, or so i think" Says kon, the person whose on n4g 24/7
I could not agree more, you have so many idiots playing this game it is not even funny. You have morons blocking doorways, you also have morons standing around and not paying attention that if your team is trying to do an objective this one moron can get everyone killed. Why? because the moron thinks this is COD and believes sitting in a corner helps.
I have one to add to this article SUICIDE BOMBS if you run into the enemy base and find yourself surrounded by enemies who may or may not notice you right away and you have an unwaivering feeling that you are about to die then pull out a grenade. likely what happens is that one or two of the guys there think they can melee you and your grenade will fall out of your hands and usually get a kill or two. I've gotten a 4 kill combo with this tactic once. I love it
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA That picture for no.5 (You Think This is Black Ops) made my day. Nice read.
9. you just dont like the game and just bought it for the socom beta. that would be me. EDIT: Im new to this site and i see allot of people dont like honesty on here, you dont need to dislike my comment its my opinion. i did not say the game sucks . wish i can see who dislike my comments so i can see who the real fanboys are.
Huh? Socom Beta? How.. =S
its a scratch off code that comes in the box with the game
Well shit, I guess I need to go get KZ3.
I never received one :( Are you sure it was in the box? Did it have Socom art work on it?
yea it right in the box and on the front of the box it says socom 4 mulitiplayer beta.
I'm the 5th person who disagree with you. Not becuz I'm a fanboy but you paying $60 for a game just to play a beta. You could have saved your money and wait for the public beta if there be one I hope.
yea but the thing is socom is my favorite online game and really the only online game i play. i had socom1 day 1 and still play with the same clan i think 7 or 8 years now. i also still hop on socom 1 every now and then its socrack. and yes the servers are still up for socom 1.
It's disagree not dislike like there's a difference. If people disliked your comment it would be a minus bubbles. I do like the game and didn't buy just for the SOCOM beta so I disagree.
The reason people suck are: 1)There is no auto aim. Hip fire is key to close encounters 2)You need to play as a team 3)Its objective based so killstreaks mean nothing 4)Its balanced across all modes and classes 5)Its not glitched or broken online. 6)The controls are not floaty, and every weapon feels different without super fast reload speeds. 7)You can't call in dogs, helicopters and remote cars, nor can you run about the map aimlessly trying to kill people 8)Its not COD. And if its not COD then people actually have to play the game, rather than the game playing for them.
Agreed! Killzone 3 will expose a gamers lack of. This game is definitely for the hardcore with FPS multiplayer skills.
I still think they need to nerf the Marksmen class.
Actually the Marksman's (Scout's) ability has been reduced in update 1.02. The scramble is less effective. Also they no longer have spot and mark. Then again I could be biast since I used to be a KZ 2 Scout. I think the shotgun is too strong, or the range is too much. The only class I would fix is Infiltrator, as they can meele without breaking disguise. So you have ones that just wait at the edge of your spawn area and meele. So frustrating! I still love the game though. Killzone 3 has a deep and layered multiplayer. It's not for the faint if heart.
Well said...Helghan dogs would be cool tho. Have helghan dogs have red glowing eyes and super ripped and buff and shi- yea... KZ3 DE BEST!
2 things about me, I'm patient and adabtable in other words, k3 is a piece of cake :)
People that think if they looks like a teammate it is one, is going to find a knife in their neck from me. That or a shotgun.
lol i have seen people get mad at teamkills and i 'm like wtf ''they are the enemy disguised '' and its annoying whenthe noobs get stuck in a door or corridors and are afraid to cross over. But the most annoying thing is when you are trying to do the objectives and 80% of your team is not but you enemy team is.
l am loving the multiplayer, the stage design is by far the best on any console shooter to date. you have got to wear your thinking cap when you play kz3....
Woa, the killzone.com stats and information system kicks ass, you just log in with your PSN ID too. I'm rather good at Killzone 3 already, but I'm sure I could be much better, that's why I'm going to read this article, continue to change the way I play, and learn as much as possible. Hmm, I haven't been meleeing as much since I started to get good with move. That's something I should be open minded about and see if theres anything I should fix. I think #11 could have been, "you're meleeing too much". It's kind of a hard habbit to break considering brutal melees are so cool.
It would be great if most of the people playing warzone quit thinking the whole time they were playing team deathmatch.
Yes agreed. My group of players only do warzone and operations. There Guerilla warfare for people that just want to kill! Bring the teamwork people!
heres another reason im playing with some primitive controller instead of a mouse and keyboard Oh well gotta deal with this stupid console shit if I want to play the game at all
so you can't make the adjustment and it's makes you frustrated?
Try it with the Playstation Move for a couple hours and tweak the settings. If you don't like it with move(which would be crazy), buy a Splitfish accessory to play PS3 games w/ mouse that don't come with mouse support. They can be purchased at splitfish.com. Personally, I don't need to buy one because I used to be a big Counterstrike(mouse/kb) player and I'm confident that I can play pretty much just as well with the Move. If you do in fact start playing KZ3 w/ mouse, let me know and I will play you with the Move. Also you might want to check the vid I made(while warming up) out on Youtube ("Killzone 3 15+ killstreak")
LOL at Point #2. I play medic all the time and I love it when people kill me but don't finish me off. Personally, whenever I kill someone that's close to me I always go and hit them once just to be on the safe side.
This!!!!!!! I was just about to make the same comment. (So..many easy knife/neck )
Agreed. I hate when I see someone walk away and just let someone bleed out. I'm thinking " don't you know the chances of him being revived and coming back to kill US from behind are higher then the chances of him bleeding out?" FINISH HIM!!!! I mean really, how much extra effort does it take to play it safe...
True. 1 maybe 2 shots is all it takes...then move on.
fun and true lol according to this i sucked at the beta
Well I suck cuz I dont like how the PS3 controller feels for FPS. Im not horrible, but I dam sure aint as good as I am on the FPS' on Xbox.
Man, i really wish you guys would stop whining about CoD. Jeezus. I thought this would end when kz3 finally got here, but apparently nott. Some of us-even those like me on a ps3-enjoy cod and arent impressed by kz3. I played the sp and mp demos, and owned kz2. Not for me. If youre game is so great, why dont you go play instead of STILL bitching about cod.
Being Tactical and using Teamwork.. is Vital for Survival..
i disagree with #2 . Medic is an easy way to get points.most don't even care if the guy you 've revved si still in the line of fire and will die in the next seconds
Funny article. But I have to say...yes you should put down any medics you shoot. They're usually pretty easy to spot with their bot. Cause it is REEEEEALLLLY embarrassing to shoot a medic planting a bomb turn around to continue defending the area and 5 seconds later you're getting your throat slit. I felt like such an idiot.
Sorry for stabbing you man.
#9 Nobody on your team is playing Tactician! Seriously, I'd like to get one game where I'm not the only one trying to secure the TRS's! He who controls the respawn controls the world!!!
I was just in a game where my entire team was basically all tacticians and theirs had maybe one. I'll give you two guesses to figure out who beat the hell out of who and I'll give you a hint...it wasn't them...
only things that suck about the game IMO is the lower health and spawning in with what are basically killstreaks, like being able to see people through walls? really? Going completely invisable while not appearing on radar from firing your gun? hmmmmmmm
I guess that gives you incentive to build up your own classes. I'm not big on using the perks, but if I want to play well consistently i may have to get used to it. I love the low health though because it's realistic, etc., but I don't like how easy it is to respawn. I liked counterstrike, where you have to wait until the next round to respawn. Overall though, Killzone 3 has been the best online FPS I've played on a console and GG deserves much applause for the EXCELLENT Playstation Move implementation. I was dumbfounded by how unbelievably intuitive the controls were at times(if set correctly).
Does not account for instances where one team pushes you back so you only spawn in your base and then they spend the rest of the round basically spawn killing. Takes only a couple of minutes before members of the receiving team quit out. Dirty tactics ruin all multiplayer games as they strip any fun right out of it.
random but am i the only one who uses r2+l2 combo for shooting/ aiming?
I dissagree with Number 2. The medic is a big deal, I've been resurected and Kill 4 people from behind before. Don't let your guard down. Dumb tip.
Your right. It's such a tactical advantage if your the medic. If the guy does not finish you off, you just revive yourself and melee him. It's funny as anything, because you know he is thinking he wish he had finished you off. Thats what I love about this game, you have to be quite tactical in certain ways to gain victory. The best thing is proximity mines, people are never on the look out for them. Tip: watch the stairs.
Awesome article - 5/5 KILLZONE 3 has a moderate learning curve. After a couple hours of practice, I have gotten much better.
Funny article :) me personally, I love to play as either a Engineer or a Medic.
The immediate mistake that people make is trying to play it like COD, and that's where I take an enormous advantage.
