You guys are really selling this. Is the basic version okay or do you really need to stump up the cash for the extra space and stuff?

 

Basic version is grand. I started with that and gradually moved up the gears. Its easy for me to gauge If its worth blowing all the cash on the EOD version by time spent playing it to date. Ive played Arma for years and after buying all their DLC i then started contributing to the upkeep of the servers as i was playing on them most nights. Happy to part cash to a solid community. 

 

Also, You can run with us If you fancy it. We're all shit so its funny as fuck.

I was still chuckling to myself this morning that we extracted quickly last night because you thought I said I had picked up a Paracord worth £185k when in fact i had picked up a powercord worth £15k. I thought we were extracting because you had the keycard. 

 

Was totally worth it to see the friendly scavs at the exit though.

haha that was mad.

 

I've had a few good encounters with Scavs and geared lads. I know that bucks the trend. When i met the fat lads I was a hatchling and they gave me an MP7 and 30 grand lol

I've noticed something of a turnaround in charitableness (charity? ) in this recently. My last two insurance returns were entirely intact and I've seen some streamers comment they don't loot from low level players, or if they do it's stuff they got during the run. I guess it's also not worth the space in inventory if it's not worth X per square.

Makes sense, they are only after high end items. i dont think Ive seen Shroud loot any low ranking dudes apart from his new Hardcore series he started but I think hes already geared out of his mind on that

Ah, just on the upgrade. If you are going to buy the big one. Buy each stage as you get the gear for each bit. I didn't but my friend did and got more shit than me. It only works the once though, when they wipe you just get your tier back. 

 

This is why I love scaving Factory. I spawned in with a pistol and some bandages :D

260K from that quick 5 mins. I kept the keys, the relay and the drinks.

In factory I have a few spots I like to sit in. The dead end blue containers near the two searchable boxes, the raised platform above the dead scav or the tunnels to the left if you are coming out of gate three. Then I usually wait and listen. I try to get a feel for where people are and where the fighting is. Keeping mental note to scavenge the bodies. Player scavs you can see a mile off so I try to kill them, but in general I don't agro the scavs by killing them, unless by accident. Then once I have a feel for the map I try to play around the fighting, moving under the cover of gun fire and looting. It's amazing how easy it is to pop players whilst they are looting if you wait. Even better is that they have usually harvested the good shit for you. Getting out gate 3 is always a bit risky, but it's my preferred exit as you can get to it from a number of ways. The corrugated box the closest to the right is the one to watch as you go past into the exit, as well as watching for exit campers. I was down to 1.7 mil two days ago as I wanted to buy stuff to upgrade my hideout. Currently sat at just under 4mil, mostly from factory scav runs.

So I've had a good run of runs today. I wanted to get to know interchange as I need an in raid gas analyser for my quests. I did a few hatchling runs, but got capped by scavs. So I ran with a pistol. I killed a few scavs in Oli and ended up with a decent kit. So I decided I'd just play with the kit until I died and do another pistol run. Then I accidentally loaded into customs and was super near dorms, so I ran over and straight into Rashala. I killed him and his henchmen, then got into a fight with a PMC. I also killed him and then very slowly took my hobbled ass back to cross roads. I've ended up ridiculously kitted, all off the back of a pistol run :D

 

Still haven't got a fucking gas analyser though!

Yeah, it has to be in raid. Even tried having a mate give me one, but it didn't work. I've heard they're in Interchange, which is why I've started running it, but I'm still not massively famliar with it. Had a run with a mate earlier. He died and I capped 11 scavs and got out :D

We went into Interchange last night. Remember that scene in Heat, the film with DeNiro and Pacino? where they are running with automatic weapons on the street? well that was us in underground car park last night, the most intense fight Ive experienced yet. I got 5 scav kills and 2 player kills. Team mate had 19 scav kills. Unreal. I ended up blowing myself up with my own grenade

@Sir Mullo Ah ha ha. So there's a bug on interchange, whereby if you stand in a particular area the scavs will not stop coming. It got introduced in one the pre 12 patches. The community asked for it to be left in, but kept in a localised area. Sounds like you hit it. 

 

I did this earlier and it has brought me so much key sorting joy.

Sorry, which quest is what? The scavs spawning are just a random thing and there my doc cases labelled with keys for each map :)

 

Finally got the Gas Analyser, yeet!

Yeah, I just need to get Jager upto level 2. I've basically been ignoring the quests and hideout, but I want the scav crate. Little did I know intel center 2 is the hub to which seemingly every other upgrade is attached :/

I've not played for a week or so now, every time I go to boot it up it seems like a lot more an investment of effort than I have at the minute. I've still no idea where to start with the hideout either.

 

@snowbind do you mean the Scav Junkbox or is the Scav crate what Sir Mullo means? If it's the Junkbox just take the hit and pay the 1.4m on the flea market.

Yeah, sorry I mean the Scav gambling mechanic. I've got a Lucky Scav Junkbox, that is seemingly full with guest gear.

The cost of getting it up and running is insane now. The intelligence folders are around 250k each.
