I found this to be very interesting and increditibely informative. I would love to try mutilplayer but having not done it I haven't a clue where or how to get started, but I could see myself as the lone wolf rambo bow killer type.
Haha, i love this guy's videos, and they are very informative as well, thanks for sharing.
But why are you holding off on the Multiplayer? you really should try it out
And hell yeah, you should join us bow users to teach all those SAR users how it's done
Well, I guess i've held off LcKiller617 simple because I don't known how to get started with multiplayer. I don't known what a SAR user is but they sound like awful people…LOL I known I live the stealth play like in splinter cell blacklist and I love the bow I used it almost exclusively in Tomb Raider 2013. And once I had it upgraded it was really bad **bleep** with as much range & power as a rife. I could kill a guy with a head shot with one shot and do it quietly which was key for stealth and for lining up the next kill.
Haha it's not that they are awful people (SAR users), i just that it's the gun that almost everybody uses, not that there's anything wrong with it
I must admit that it is a bit hard to get started in the Mp at first, you'll die a lot probably, but when you finally start getting kills it is very rewarding and fun, specially if you play with some friends.
Bow is the most difficult of all primary weapons and has its flaws. (Difficult to aim, slow fire rate, terrible head-to-head) I used it very late when I was already experienced with the other weapons. The SAR (Semi Auto Rifle) is by far the easiest and most "noob-friendly" weapon next to the revolver. If you like to play stealthy though and flank a lot, the bow is fine. There are 4 pre-defined classes when you start multiplayer, one of them is "Stealth" and has the bow in it, so just try it
But as JcKiller617 said: The beginning is really tough. I died lots and lots of times when I started MP. I would start off with a support class (Crafter, Healer) so you can make up for beeing bad and you still earn a lot of parts.
I would also recommend that you don't play alone. There is a buddies thread in the MP section of this Forum. And of course, ADD ME But I am on a play-for-fun account atm, which is: marsipulami_82
Another tip: Don't start with the DLC maps yet, the guys playing there are much better than on the regular maps.
EDIT: I also started a thread about the bow a while ago, maybe the tips there will help you too: http://forums.naughtydog.com/t5/The-Last-of-Us-Multiplayer/Bow-help/m-p/42311047/highlight/true#M585...
Thanks Foofighter I found that threat very helpful, although there were parts of it I didn't understand haven't never played multiplayer. such as what does 16-14-2-3 mean ? I'd also like some more advice i guess on what the best way to venture into multiplayer is ? I learned on the tips video I posted that theres a solo player campaign maybe thats where I should start as I'm not use to playing with other people or being on a team. I'd hate to be the noob on a team and let them down.
Yes, you can make a private match with just yourself. There you can fiddle with the weapons and get used to the maps. But different from the video, I would suggest you just play with others. Theres a lot you can't learn by just playing for yourself. If you have a nice team, it doesn't matter if you are the "noob".
EDIT: The numbers like 10-9-8-7 mean: Downs-Executions-Deaths-Revives
But those numbers differ by the mode you play. I would start with "Supply Raid". There you have more lives and therefore more chances to screw up :-)
Also only when playing with others, you will get more points and therefore more weapons/skills/loadout points
i prefer burst rifle myself
like i was telling someone online (in which they were talking about the bow not being good)
weapons and how well they do are based on
1. how well you are able to put them to use in the game.
2. what level of "Sharpshooter" you have in your loadout
3. If you upgrade your weapon in game with parts vs using the parts for armor.
I have sharpshooter 3 on most of my loadouts and upgrade my weapon. You kill people alot faster. If i have any left over, i'll get armor.
