    Its definitely true in my case that I've been in more winning teams that played passively or defensively than aggressive. For example, if there's only a few teams left and you get to the circle early and get a good defensive position, that can often win you the game. The downside is it's boring because you have to wait for people to come to you. Playing to seek out combat is way better fun, I really enjoy battles in the Bunker, Hangars, Skull Town and AirBase for example where the action is close and intense.

    I've had some amazing randoms lately but some mentally challenged ones as well. Like the jumpmaster who changed his mind mid-jump and turns 180 degrees to land at a hot drop we already flew past 3 seconds ago. For some strange reason there were no weapons left and 3 fully armed squads waiting for us. Good strategy dude! And this is classic Mirage:

    Claire B to see the other perspective. Although, I totally agree with other people in this thread that's its lame how the B scenarios are like a parallel universe, they don't match up with the A scenarios properly. In the original it really felt like the scenarios were running in the same timeline.

    Nah I beat him in a few goes at 85% completion too. Now you gotta go hunting for the extra stuff and uncover the real challenges!

    Yeah I found the start of Claire B to be hard as well. It does end up getting a lot easier though and I ended up with lots of leftover ammo and herbs coming out my ears.

    Yeah I find him quite easy to follow when he's invis, maybe they need to make his outline harder to see. At the end of the day though his abilities are all about causing distraction and chaos, like someone on here said to me in-game even if it distracts someone for just a second it's worthwhile. Heck, I still shoot at decoys sometimes, in the heat of the moment you naturally just aim where you see movement. His Ult won't save you if you're being hunted down but it's great to use in the middle of a firefight if you get low - people just don't have time to track you.

    Also, saw a guy that was level 85 yesterday. Now that's some serious dedication to the game, I've played it most nights since release and am only level 45. I've seen lots of players with 500+ kills and one guy with 900+.

    I find it quite funny being with level 1's. If they don't solo jump immediately they tend to be quite good with following you around like a little puppy. And then there's all sorts of shenanigans. Oh shit, he's seen an enemy! - oh no, he's just pinging the item he found. Oh no, we're under attack! Nope, he just called in an airstrike on our heads. Where did he go? Oh, he's still looting that body from 5 minutes ago. They'll also heroically try to revive you in the most deadly situations, and at the first sign of the circle closing panic and start running away (probably because the circle in other Battle Royales is way more deadly). And last but not least, the new player quits the match once they're downed or eliminated, because they don't know any better - bless.

    According to various vids and pros I've seen, best overall weapons for DPS (damage per second) are considered to be: - Wingman if you can hit shots (with skullpiecer add on if possible) - Peacekeeper with choke add on (some players prefer the Eva 8) - Spitfire ideally with extended mag as it burns ammo - Devotion with Turbocharger add on (no wind up time), though you're gonna need lotsa energy ammo - Prowler with select fire add on (lets you switch to full auto) - R301 Carbine In the pro scene you can see people destroy with the high risk high reward Wingman and Peacekeeper, but the Spitfire and R301 also output a lot of damage whilst being very accurate. Most weapons are good in this game though, the hardest to get value out of being sniper rifles as its really hard to eliminate players before they can get in cover and heal up/get revived. Blue or purple armour and helmets can give you those vital few seconds of survivability, though purple is very hard to come by.

    Yep you missed quick turn, its down and Circle or something. I never used it, you don't really need to as you turn so fast without it, I guess for bosses it could be handy. Disagree with you on most counts although I agree the "put thing here" puzzles weren't interesting. To be fair those ones are more just a way to structure the game than tax your brain. The rest of the puzzles are light but I enjoyed them. The Silent Hill games were an example of complex puzzles messing up the flow of the game, in Resi they're just a nice pace changer. What is it you dont like about the combat? I think its the best we've had in a Resi game with the exception that the guns don't feel meaty enough. The amount of enemy animations and behaviours adds so much depth to it as well. Did this get posted yet? It's a no hit Hardcore run with Leon complete with commentary:

    Check out the first clip in this vid I actually fell off in exactly the same spot when it was down to the last 2 squads, its so easy to strafe off those walkways!

    Yep I'm Jigsawn. Try Bloodhound plus Bangalore, in his Ult he can see everyone in the smoke. Ps Timmo don't worry about it, I choke 2/3 games!

    I finished Claire B yesterday (on Normal) and was a little disappointed in how similar it was to Leon A. The police station is good because the order's changed, but the rest of the game (aside from the forgettable side mission) is much the same. Still I found it much harder in the beginning but much easier in the mid/late game largely because I new what to expect, and I had ammo coming out my ears by the end. It was fun though as you can concentrate more on the combat and ploughing through it all. Total for Claire was just over 6 hours whereas it was about 8 hours for Leon A (not including my many deaths I guess!). Not sure if I can be arsed with Hard-core, based on the difficulty of the extra missions I think it'll be really hard. It sounds a fun challenge but having to go through the same events yet again isn't really grabbing my imagination. What are people's thoughts on Hardcore if you played it, was it fun or just a gruelling repeat of the same old stuff?

    Is it just me or are the zombies faster and more aggressive in the B scenario?
