You sniped them? Isn't that CoD in a nutshell?
Co-op in Red Dead, fun as usual.
... I'm always takin' a piss on the communities of shooters like CoD, but hot damn are RDR's players slowly taking a turn for the worse. Been more than a week since I've played a full session of each mission once, and a player killer doesn't show up. Not that I can't dispatch 'em with a swift shot to the head, but someone usually dies before I get 'em. Can't stand watchin' a douche ruin someone else's game like that. =/
Two of the bastards showed up in just four games. Two of them rage quit with a .50-70 cartridge from my sniper lodged in their cranium.
Last I checked, n00b tubing and taking advantage of poor programming was CoD in a nutshell.
I always run the Marksman Class in Co-op since it's the hardest to perform well with; best long-range weapon (the Rolling Block Rifle; the sniper I mentioned), but it's only truly useful on two of the Co-op missions. On the flip side, the class has the worst close-mid range weapon in the game for fighting NPCs, period (the weakest revolver, the Cattleman). I'm always aiming to get the highest score, and sniping in Red Dead is too slow to do so, so I usually run in guns blazing with that terrible pistol. Co-op would be too easy and get boring very quickly if I didn't challenge myself.
Also, the Rolling Block is the only weapon that can kill a team mate in one shot in Co-op, since your team mates take much less damage if you accidentally (or intentionally...) engage in some friendly fire, and only with a head shot. Using the Marksman class is a coincidental boon for dislodging trolls from the lobby.
That too, unfortunately... That too.
Which is why I love Red Dead's competitive multiplayer so much, what with how quick scoping and other forms of sniping are 100% avoidable if you so desire. Aggresive-cautious movement throughout the map is also much more effective than camping.
I am reminded how I know nothin' 'bout the battlefield games... I've got a question for BF players. Is the best tactic to simply camp in all modes (when you aren't forced to be rushing, capturing objectives, etc.)?
I think Starhawk shoul automatically balance teams in matches. If youve got all level +10 on one team and all level -5 on one, the level -5 team WILL lose by at least 20 kills.
Went up againts a team with two level 25s and barley managed to win.
Good session in Revelations. Would of broke 10,000 a record amount of times in a single sit-down (for me, at least) if my team didn't hold me back. Some grand scores regardless, and a few 10,000+ anyways.
oh mah god i played terribly
Sometimes, you just ain't having a good day for a certain game... I noticed as such in just two games of Revelations. x_x
But I still had the highest score once, which confused me greatly.
