This can be the online thread, where everything related to the online portion can be discussed. :P

-:CLAN DETAILS:-

If you see this image posted:

Posted Image

That means there's an update in details regarding clan games/tournaments, so keep an eye out if you're keen.

FAQ:

- How to get in the clan?
All are welcome! Request an invite by posting in this thread and either bluntcorpse, me, or any other officers that pop up will send an invite. We won't be taking things too seriously, just out for a bit of fun, hopefully winning most of the matches along the way. :lol:

- How do i view my stats on Killzone.com?
Sign into the website using your PSN log in (email and password).

-How do i find out if i have an invite, and how to accept/decline it?
There are two ways:
1.) - in game method - When you go into Warzone from the main menu, select Communications, there you can see messages you've received from your clan, including invites.
2.) - web method - Via Killzone.com. Invites will show up at the bottom right of your profile.

You can combine a primary badge ability and a secondary badge ability to create a hybrid class.

The classes are:


Posted Image
The default multiplayer character is assigned when no primary badge is selected. A secondary
badge may still be added. Riflemen can start with most weapons, except for the specialized ones.


Posted Image
Primary badge ability: Revives downed team mates.
Secondary badge ability: Throws a health pack, which can be picked up by other players.



Posted Image
Primary badge ability: Sets up an automated turret which targets the enemy.
Secondary badge ability: Repairs ammunition dispensers, mounted guns, and automated turrets.



Posted Image
Primary badge ability: Throws a coloured smoke grenade, which serves as a spawn point.
Secondary badge ability: Requests air support from a sentry bot which targets the enemy.


Posted Image
Primary badge ability: Dons heavy armour twice as strong as normal.
Secondary badge ability: Temporarily boosts running speed.


Posted Image
Primary badge ability: Assumes the disguise of a randomly selected enemy player.
Secondary badge ability: Throws a sticky, proximity-activated C-4 charge.


Posted Image
Primary badge ability: Uses a cloaking suit to become near-invisible.
Secondary badge ability: Tags all on-screen enemy players with a hidden marker, which
broadcasts their coordinates to team mates.

*Some of these classes enjoy specialized weapons.

------------------------



The official website can be really helpful. It tracks all your stats for single player and multi-player. You can view other players and clans stats also.

There's a feature called 'Battle Replay' where you can view your (or anyone's) actions during an entire match. The site holds the Battle Replay for two weeks.

To use the website, just log in with your PSN email and password, and it's all setup!

You could at launch but yesterday GG released a patch to stop that. People were exploiting it using bots set to easy on one team, and a few people on the other to rank up faster.

It's just a temporary solution until they sort out a better way to deal with it. I think all they need to do really is make it so you don't earn points against easy bots. So hopefully they bring it back soon. Setting up a room with a few mates and getting a bunch of Elite bots in would be awesome . It'd be a good way to learn the maps and game types too.

I tried to join your game but they had a rank limit on it, so couldn't join.

The maps, match types and classes have bit of learning curve, once you have a few rounds on the maps under your belt things should start to click.


Here's a few tips that've helped me out.

- Shoot in bursts, recoil is crazy. More accurate when crouching and if you have a sniper rifle hold the controller steady when using the scope, it'll steady your aim (like in single player).

- Create or Join Squads - Allows you to spawn where your squad leader is. Use the d-pad at the respawn screen to select your squad leader and spawn at his location.

- If someone invites you to a squad in the lobby before the game starts use L1/R1 to get to the squads menu and accept/create. If you're invited into a squad in-game, hit select and accept/create.

- You can also spawn at spawnpoints thrown by Tacticians as well as in areas your team controls during the Capture mode.

- After death when choosing where to spawn, make sure you pay attention to the camera view! It shows you what's going on at that spawnpoint. So if things are crazy, you might be better off spawning somewhere else.

- When you're the Assassination Target and you get "killed", don't hit respawn as you're not dead yet, you're just on the ground bleeding. A medic can revive you and even if there's no medic around, the enemy still has to give you a final blow, so stay put and allow your team to defend you. When you're hunting the Assassination Target, don't forget to give the killing blow.

- To use ammo boxes your engineers have fixed, just push circle, they should appear green on the map when one is active. If they're red, then they're the enemies and can be destroyed, allowing an engineer of your own to take it over.

- If you're in a Search and Retrieve match and pick up the propaganda speaker by standing over it for a second, you just have to run it to the location on the map and touch the pedestal, no buttons need to be pressed.

- When you unlock Tactician, keep in mind when using Spawn Grenades that your teammates spawn in the direction that you were facing towards when you first throw them down. This can get really frustrating when spawn points are thrown wrong, and you spawn there with your back to the action and you get nailed!

Thanks for the tips. Will most definitely come in handy when i hit the game a bit harder in the following weeks. Still playing through the campaign. I'll be playing multiplayer pretty much every early afternoon and night for the next couple of weeks once I'm done with the campaign, just hit me up with a message if you're keen for a game. But bare in mind I do suck.

Does the fact that I don't have a headset change the multiplayer experience much?

Yeah sweet, will do. I've been in a few games against some well organized groups due to having mics, which has definitely helped a team, but it's not that big of a deal unless you want to chat with friends or get tactical as a team.

I have a mic and haven't felt i needed to use it, i've just been working on my own, doing my own thing. A lot of the games at the moment are just chaos anyway. I''ll start using it eventually though, when i can control the "That's f***ing BULLSHIT!!" i spurt out at the screen every now and then. :)

Played a while and it was really fun and I came near the top of the table so that was good. Recoil is crazy and my reaction time is terrible but my constant mashing of the melee button did me well.

By the way is it possible to get the trophies relating to getting the top weekly online honour ranks because that seems really hard with all the people in the world who will be playing this online.

They've taken them down for the moment, they weren't prepared for the heavy load. Hopefully it'll be sorted soon, it's much easier to check your stats online.
