    Yes, pop it and wait. Only needs a single hit but it takes a second for it to scream and then drop it.

    Played about 20 games and the Alternator is wayyyyy to powerful now with the disrupter rounds.

    It feels like the hellfire smg from borderlands 1....aim in vague direction of the thing you want to die and pull the trigger. Doesn't make any difference if your wearing a purple shield either, he who has the alternator disrupter rounds will always win any fight.

    Definitely a broken weapon. Without the hop-up, it still seems to shred faster than all other light ammo weapons at close-medium range, even in my unskilled hands. It's made positioning and awareness really important- you get the jump on someone with it, and you will win without much skill.

    I still drop one for a 301 carbine though. I do prefer the alternator to the r99, but haven't had disruptor rounds in one yet. It's an early game weapon for me, until I find something I like more.

    I'm really liking the extra energy ammo clips. Are there still overcharge hop-ups around? I haven't found any to make the devotion or havoc fire faster yet, but they are maybe just rarer these days.

    @Vortex808 With the buff to the base damage per shot, the alternator is better than the 301 even without the hop up, with the disrupter rounds 4 shots will take down purple armour.

    I don't find the turbo charger that rare.....when I don't have a devotion or havoc, found 3 of them one after the other in containers yesterday.

    Another thing to look out for is the base magazine of the energy weapons is smaller now, on the havoc you need a blue magazine to get the same magazine size as before for example.

    I was awash with Blue & purple energy mags last night, but not a turbocharger to be found. I see skullpiercer is now a gold hop up too.

    As ever, finding what you need, when you need it is the main issue! 😃

    That was a bit weird, shot a random dragon thing to get the box and looked at the name of the person it was from.....Duffking.

    Yeah, and if you have no friends it's the names of developers. Tis a nice touch.

    Think I'm finding my natural level in PS4 ranked- after having sprinted through Bronze 4-2 at the weekend, I'm seeing kill rates in the mid-hundreds for my team mates and champion squads in Bronze 1. There is also the odd slow starter with a couple of thousand under their belt, who look to be running late for gold.

    I have to say, ranked matches are pretty good quality, too- very few TTV sweats going round pubstomping with their pre-made squads compared to casual games.

    I've picked this up again having not played for a couple of months. Haven't played ranked yet but finding casual fine so far. Seem to be able to take down far more enemies and making it to the end of matches more often. Maybe all the good players are in ranked now. Anyway, having more of an effect in rounds makes the whole thing more fun.

    Q: I haven't played as Bloodhound much, but one of my weekly challenges is to scan 20 enemies. What does that mean? I popped my ultimate and had a full squad highlighted in red but the game still says I haven't scanned anyone. What am I missing?

    Loving the new season. Slowly getting to an almost respectable level as a player. Only one gripe besides the connecting issues on PS4 (at least once you get into a game it's solid) - people now are so seemingly desperate to drop where their challenges are they have no respect for the jump master. As soon as the match starts they bail to get to a specific location, breaking up the squad and probably ruining the match. It's plain rude! But then at least when you get a squad where that doesn't happen you know the guys you're with are prehaps good people who won't take all your ammo if you're downed.

    Lb/L1 is scan the area.

    The ultimate is called beast of the hunt and has other challenges associated with it.

    Good shooting duff.

    I'm struggling away with ranked matches, nearly up to gold. I get 1 or 2 good games and about 10 total duffers. Would be good to get a decent team together.

    I'm on most days on PC and have got to gold with randoms.

    I'm the kind that likes to drop a bit later, loot up and be prepared for the scraps. Can't be doing with the constant Skull Town or Supply Ship drops!

    @Yorkshire_Bourne

    I would do the same usually. What I don't understand is people giving up jump master then moaning when you do choose somewhere out of the way.

    @dsmx

    I'm not great either but will get an invite going soon.

    Full squads would definitely be the way to go if possible. I generally play with random peeps, due to playing later and possibly only for a short while.

    After the battlepass changes, I now get annoyed with this game every Tuesday as almost every random fucker piles off doing their own thing to go for the new challenges. We're all tempted, but do try to stick with your squad to begin with, eh?

    @Tomo I believe duff plays on the PS4 as well but PC is where we play together.

    Yeah I hate when someone instantly gives you the jumpmaster control and then suggests a drop zone immediately after.

    Erm, why didn't you suggest and then drop there regardless?!?!

    I only hate dropping on Skull Town and the dropship to be honest, everywhere else I'm fine. I always said Skull town is the equivalent "Tilted Towers" of Apex!

    I'll add you guys and if you have a slot free I'll lend a hand if that's ok?

    Yeah I'm primarily PC. Would be nice to get a 3 man ranked crew going, or 4 man or whatever so we can get 3 regularly.
