    Oh bugger I didnít know that. Are you sure itís just not losing the bit that you havenít yet got to the next checkpoint to keep?
    No it definitely goes down every time you die, if you get stuck for a while you can see the progress bar shrinking.

    I would not get caught up on what world tier you are at all.

    Iím not hugely but when the point of a game is to fill bars, bars reducing themselves is like a dagger straight to the heart.

    World tier is important in getting high level gear to drop though.
    At lvl 30 playing at WT14 the gear is dropping at lvl 41 which is of course making the character more powerful for higher tier player expeditions.

    Well I got to the credits....bit anticlimatic final fight if I'm honest, I've found some of the hunting and bounty missions harder and longer then that.

    That said I've enjoyed it and now I get to mop up the sub-missions I didn't do and the expeditions.

    It has taken me 24 hours to get that point, which seems like a good length to me especially since I've still not seen and done everything in the game yet.

    I have just turned WT down. Got to 6 or 7, but it was getting a but hectic. Just turned it down to 4, should maybe knock it back up to 5 then?

    Also, are the pyro's volcanic rounds any good?

    @Vortex808 most definitely! Have the mod that allows a second mag before it resets and a lmg and your good to go. Although when I get faded beam I may swap it out.

    Whatís narked me is that Iíve just got the balance of the first three skills and now there are two more. I NEED MORE TIME, DAMNIT!

    The Volcanic Rounds skill looks immense though.

    Yeah, the rounds skill is pretty boss. If you apply it to a shotgun you can melt people.

    The auto-shotgun with 20 in the clip quickly blows through all your shotgun ammo. While the pump action shotgun holds 3 to 6, which is worthless as the auto-shotgun tends to do the same damage. I can see them making the auto-shotgun weaker

    Volcanic Rounds was a skill I used till the end

    I found the auto-shotgun to be one of the worst weapons. I just couldnít get anything going with it at all and chews through ammo stupidly fast.

    Dunno if itís a balancing decision but you I do think the shotgun ammo pool generally needs to be bigger. I never run out of rifle ammo but can easily blow through an entire stock for the shotgun.

    I killed the volcano monster with literally my last AR bullet.

    I thought i was fucked as it swapped to my sniper rifle with me on a sliver of health just as i got surrounded by a bunch of his little mobs, then the cutscene kicked in.

    Phew! 😃

    Just killed the Volcano monster too, also short of ammo, but managed it in the end. WT4, woo.

    Not like me at all this, but Iím really enjoying playing around with the skill tree when things arent going to plan. Little tweaks here and there and it can make all the difference.

    For the Pyromancer, Iím spread across all 3 skills trees to get weapon damage and health up a bit, as well as trying to maintain that burn for as long as possible.

    @[maven] I'm up for giving them a go although I've moved up to WT9 now because otherwise my character literally makes a mockery of anything lower now with the amount of damage it outputs as I beam about the battlefield.

    3rd, I think, boss fight resets *after* you use the 'join boss fight button', there just no escaping (even quitting out and reloading save), to juggle your skills and gear or whatever. Ended up resetting the story progress back 20 or so minutes, that was jolly annoying.

    I ended up caving and buying this yesterday - I really fancied playing it and Iíve not been disappointed so far. Having a lot of fun just crushing everything in my path.

    Currently level 10 and World Tier 6 - Iíve died a couple of times on a specific Captain that I had completely the wrong guns for but otherwise Iím not finding the difficulty hard. Just landed in Eagleís Peak and will be setting off to shoot some stuff in the snow tonight.

    Gamepass already has an effect on me insofar as I probably would have bought this (tried the demo a second time and quite liked it after giving it more of a chance), but ... haven't. That's less because of Sony though and more because I am a PC Gamepass subscriber, and this being console-Gamepass exclusive, so to speak, makes it a little hard to swallow. The game basically costs 25% of a series S...

    This was my thinking when I got the S. Five or Six 'big' games and its paid for itself and game pass.

    Tbh, im playing on my S ten times more than my PS5. Stupid FOMO.

    Me personally I've not really had any problems logging into the game, happened a few times I just go do something else for a few hours and pick it back up later as it is a very good game for that.

    The enemy variety....while they look very different in reality there are very few enemy types to fight with the main variety coming from the wildlife but they aren't what you are fighting most of the time. That said I still enjoyed fighting them and you really do need to pay attention to what is going on as you start upping the world tiers.

    The story...it's serviceable. It's not going to win any awards but I wouldn't say it is painful and it was good enough for me to want to know what comes next which is about the best you can expect from writing in games.

    I think the main problem with the game is it gives the impression of a cover based shooter with the waist high walls everywhere and it just isn't.

    While it is possible to play it that way, you will have much more fun with it if you play it like Doom. With your shotgun drawn, moving faster around the battle arenas then a coked up rabbit.
