A fellow Supply Crate Drop lover. 🙂
Most save the Signaller support calls in case someone dies to get a replacement but as long as my men are still on their basic weapons (i usually upgrade weapons last) the supply crate offers lots of goodies.
Unlike in MnB2 there are no duds in it. Some stuff may not be so good to your current game but they are never worthless.
Most fun thing I ever did was give a maxed xp Frenchy an M1919. One man army!
Second most fun was giving an Officer with max Combat 2 times Tracers, 2 times Magnum Rounds and Binos.
Results; a pistol whip that actually hits and kills enemies on a steady basis.at #8047
Sounds like you were recreating Hitman or any Keanu Reeves action films, Lance. Wouldn’t think the pistol would be so effective, but I guess max combat skill in urb games can make even the worst of weapons (think musket) deadly.
Any particular reason you leave weapons for last? I assume it’s because you take advantage of the Springfield’s range.at #8051
There are a few things to consider when/ before choosing specialties.
1) A grunt may not get better combat or anything else as he gains xp over the point of specializing but as long as he has his Springfield the higher his xp the faster his reaction time allowing for fast high damage long range combat at the expense of only having 30% chance to hit but I take that over most other classes until he actually has so much xp that I can instantly make him either a better soldier or have a specialist with upgrades to spare like a Medic with 20+ xp so that I can give him the fast healing all ability right away.
2) Weapons last depends a bit on the class.
A Rifleman with his starting Carbine are a poor combination to kill much but since he usually takes point he gets extra xp and then I take the M2 next that makes for nice suppression and good short range kills.
Then either go down the Grenade line or Combat line and when one of them is maxed then weapons next since by then he has enough xp to even make an M2 a real killer.
Other example be classes that basically exist only for their skills like Officer, Medic or partly Engineer and Signaller (dam that be about almost all else) since they are poor at starting combat and/or weapons upgrades.
Scout mutated to a secondary sniper somehow since his combat + uber-Shotgun with increasing combat makes him a better starting sniper then the sniper and I have not much use for his skills since his further spotting range is always on so I only increase his combat and save all else for emergency medaling.
Scouts spot range alone is the best passive skill in the game. First spot + first kill = win.
Currently I am not very eager to play MnB3 much since the only thing that changes through getting further is the ridiculous increase in enemy combat strength and reinforcement numbers.
Also the actual sandboxiness is not really since, despite the skill trees, you only have one actual fighting soldier (firstly) with just 5 other classes to chose from depending on how the game goes.
I would still rather have a more complex and mostly realistic gameplay instead of this better half MnB2 and half battalion commander thing that it is now.
