Re: Sniper: AMF vs Double Tap

If DT doesn't work with DFA it becomes much weaker that I thought, then to match with DFA is better AMF and to match with VitalPoint partner is better Double Tap.

Re: Faceless question

To have a reasonable idea of having a clean region I chose a non-growing regiong and set a high ranked ofiicer (psion if possible) during three weeks to be something like 95% sure to don't have spies there. When you say high ranked officer... do you mean the ones made in GWC or just high ranking so...

Re: Faceless question

Thanks for the clarification. I thougth that it worked as guerrillas with an "intel pool" that where filled with soldier advisor instead of intel rebel and the speed of the filling depended on advisor rank.

Re: Faceless question

As far as I know it work as follows: - Every new rebel has a random chance to be a Faceless. - After a period the game triggers "the faceless" check. - Every Faceless has his own "intel pool" and a % chance to be discovered on the current "faceless check" depending on how full is each "intel pool" -...

Re: Sniper: AMF vs Double Tap

Double Tap costs double the ammo, forcing you to reload more often (at best you can double tap 3 rounds in a row with a Superior Expanded Magazine before you must reload). With AMF you can shoot 6 rounds in a row without reloading. If you take 2 shots on the same target, then you'll have to go thro...

Sniper: AMF vs Double Tap

What is the point of AMF having Double Tap. -10% aim usually doesn't matter in a sniper that is over 100% very often. Average damage: I know that it has cooldown but doing the maths we do +4 with AMF every turn and +BaseDmg/2 every turn (on average). Wich sniper does less than 8 base damage on late ...

Re: Thoughts on the 1.3 changes

I have still the feeling that some paths are still a non choice. Like the overwatching path on specialists if we play with red fog, because we are forced to bring a medic and a second specialist usually isn't a good idea (having in mind that a ranger overwatcher is much better overwatcher). And the ...

Re: What are the uses of Field surgeon?

Yes, all this rank is weak. And the class is too. In my game they are a must because I play with Red Fog but for the rest they are dead weight, sometimes I can hack a "Mimic Drone" but even this perk is dangerous because could activate a new pod.

How do you know about that change? In the patch Notes doesn't specify about this.

What are the uses of Field surgeon?

I can't find the reason to pick up this perk. When 1 HP is an important % of the damage received (in early game) we don't have acces to this perk and in late game 1 HP isn't a lot when we receive something like 10 damage in a hit. And it happens not very often. So in my opinion is a perk that isn't ...

Re: What is the idea behind Crit Rangers?

I think the critical path is not for gaining 100% criticals, is to increase the average damage of the ranger. And of course to work with friends that increase the %hit (holotargeters, grenadiers, gunners or aim officers). For example blow cover and take two finishing shots with better chances to cri...
