^ Orbitals are pretty fare game, it is not a killstreak reward, it is rewarded to the squad leader once his squads achieves a total of 2500 War Points.

O but don't worry, Orbital Cannons will be available down the line, see if you can dodge that.

Anyway, if you still haven't made a DUST 514 character or if your character is only a few days old, I recommend using this link to make a new character:

https://dust514.com/recruit/w9MP5w/

QUOTE
Anyone who signs up for a DUST 514 account and logs into the game using your referral link will receive exclusive starter gear. They'll thank you later.


As far as I know, you get a 7-day Booster, which doubles your SP gain, and an exclusive starting Assault Rifle.
Additionally, by creating a character through the website (the link above) your Passive SP will start netting you skill points without you even having started the game.

Got the game working last night, played a little bit. It's pretty fun. On my first match I had a positive K/D. XD
I had me a nice sniping position, people came gushing in and I picked em off one by one.

I hate when I die and there's like 5 team mates around me and none of them revive me. Pisses me off so much...

How many people will be able to play on one server? Will there be any jungle or snow maps? Will weapon customization be implemented?

At the moment it is 16v16 on public matches and 8v8 on corporation battles.
They plan on expanding it up to 24v24.

QUOTE

Possibly yes, among the thousands of planets available there ought to be snow and jungle variations.

Yes.

Grease I used your link. Is the assault rifle I'll get permanent?
And will it work if I already have a character?

EDIT: and I need a team that doesn't f*cking suck. EVERY teammate I have in DUST are just morons who came from COD and don't even know how to play.

K if you create a new character using the link I provided (which is in the first page as well btw), your new character will receive a permanent copy of a "Recruit Assault Rifle", which, according to some people at the forum, does an extra .6 damage per shot more than the standard assault rifle (they are actually plasma rifles, they need to change the name).

You will also get a 7 day booster which multiplies your Skill points at the end of the match by 1.5. I believe you have to activate the booster first; it should be on the "Augmentations" tab under "Character" on your NeoCom . You can save it and activate it at any time I believe. If it has been already automatically activated, let me know.

Im not sure if you can assign the rifle to an already exciting characters but if a window doesnt appear after you`ve selected a character to play with, then no, the items have been automatically assigned to the character create through the link.

Definitely, I can only stand playing solo with my lonewolf scout character, with my Logistics I pretty much exclusively play with my corporation.
You should do the same, either tell some friends to try out the game and play with you, go to the forums and ask for a corporation* or try this:
I`ve heard of an in-game channel where you can just ask for someone to team up and you`ll get sent a squad invite. Look for "Create/Join channel" on the select menu and type in "LFSquad", If there is someone there, which it should, it`s a popular channel from what Ive heard, tell them you`re a newcomer and you need someone to squad up with, etc. wink.gif

*If you`re a vehicle operator, preferably HAV (Heavy Attack Vehicle), you`re welcome to join the corp I`m in "Ahrendee Mercenaries", or if you have a K/D Ratio close to the corp`s overall kdr, which is 2.95. Contact me through PM if you meet one of these prerequisites and want to join a corp.

If you want to invite a friend to join the game, give them this link and they`ll receive some goodies for a kick start icon14.gif

Check on the Assets tab, under Marketplace.
Look under Assault rifles, that should tell you which weapons of that type you own at the moment.

That or click on the Light weapon slot of a dropsuit and see if it`s available.


EDIT: I`ve just read this under the Terms and Conditions of the recruiting program:

I damn hope I get the rifle. If I had an unlimited rifle for my current class, it'd be heaven. My SMG really holds me back, but I want to keep my permanent kit.

While a permanent fit is all fine and dandy, if you want to step up your game you`ll have to invest on your gear.

I'm fine with the free stuff I have so far. But an assault rifle ontop of my SMG kit, I wouldn't need anything else tounge.gif

I'll probably only buy vehicles and sh*t. Any weapon-related things, permanent only for me.

And I checked the stuff you said, STILL haven't got the assault rifle...

Just had a go on a default enforcer. Pretty fun. I wasn't nearly as bad as I thought I would be. I've played FPS games for about 3 hours total in my entire life so actually getting a few games on a positive K/D is pretty good.

If no one replies, just try to post it on General Discussion or something, it is no big deal really, I have a permanent AR and 4 permanent suits of each class from past official events and I don't use them.

Use up your ISK, buy some GEKs, blown it on some Type-II suits, game is no fun with militia gear wink.gif


o and if anyone has 30 mins to spare and wants to watch sh*t get blown up:

2.6 GB, I believe the update is around 100 MB, not far off from there so you're looking at around 3 GB total.

The MATC looks a lot like something you'd see in Armoured Core.

Still, I downloaded this last Saturday and gave it a bash. It seems alright based on first impressions, but I've not really had the time to put more hours into it.

Was ok I thought, I don't particularly like indepth skill tree's and upgrading stuff a lot, and there's a whole lot of that involved in this game. Game play nothing special, feels very light, a lot like MAG, not a bad thing, but just nothing special. Graphics decent, game modes only really played one, thought it was ok, a bit like rush with space ships involved lol.gif
