And ye, unless a team mate is getting decimated by one I as a commando tend to focus on the other Zeds otherwise what happens is they grab you and then the FP finishes you off while you can't move



Not if he has Night Vision thou, which can be pretty useful but while working with a good team it is better to have the "Call out" ability.
Siren is supposed to disable player(stops them from moving or something similar) but that mechanic is currently not in the game.


Like I mentioned, PROPER lv.5 skill.
NightVision is the most retarded ability.
If they made it infrared, it would have been somewhat useful.

Currently, NV is just there to somewhat make up for Commando guns that have flashlight attachment but are NOT working(all of them except L85A2), when those are fixed...it will be useless.
There are two reasons:
1. It's the most selfish perk, only you can see stuff clearly in the dark; unlike flashlight which also lights up the room for teammates(who may have weapons that lack flashlight).
2. It's pointless since most useful weapons you have will have flashlights(L85A2 is completely skippable).

NV isn't cool.

Thermals would be cool.

Also, just because shooting Stalkers is your job that does not mean you should not make it easier for others to do that...
It's not like you can't stack a few grenades to kill FP(even though that's not your job).

I think I play the game the way I want and I never said I didn't drop nades.

Night Vision is cool to me, so I get the night vision, that's all.

Most of the perks of the commando are selfish anyway, more damage, reload faster, bigger magazines... I mean, pretty much all of the perks, all classes, are selfish, except for, oh surprise, MEDIC!

One very big advantage NV has over flashlights is it lights up your entire screen and not just the area your pointing at which also seriously diminishes at close range as well.

I agree its a selfish ability, but I wouldn't call it totally useless and main reason for picking it over the other one is if you are selfish, you don't want other players to see them since you want that extra XP from shooting them your class gets


Managed to win 3 games now, last two I even landed the killing blow on the boss, its really just a matter of getting ranked up to be able to deal enough damage. When you first start off your weapons are so pathetic that they hardly do anything...

If Midnight went from GTA V to this and still is happy I guess it is like a 99 out of 100 Metascore

You had ONE team-supporting perk and you picked the shitty NV goggles over it.

I hope you are never on my squad.

Also, Support...free ammo every round adds up.

But so far there isn't entirely dark room(unless you purposefully try to holdout in subway, with grenades, in Burning Ubisoft) in current maps anyway.

It's usually just that little bit of dark area that can easily be fully illuminated by flashlight.
And also, teammates can use flashlights too; which means NV often(yes some people actually asked me to flash something) just makes screen green...nothing more.

NV isn't totally useless, it's practically useless; it's redundant and at best situational even when it's useful.

Medic can be okay for lighting since it's guns (except the pistol) have flashlights, though it depends on how you play. I tend to be looking around a lot watching everyone's health and killing zeds behind them so my flashlight wouldn't be very useful for anyone but me.

I've been having so much fun with this game, I was trying out hard mode earlier today and on one of the rounds everyone but me died on wave 6/7, managed to kill the rest of the zeds including 2 fleshpounds. We died to Hans of course, but I still felt pretty good about it.
