Dude! Where's My Cerberus? (DLC-5 UPDATE!!!)
DLC-5 has changed Defiance completely and unfortunately that applied to MP as well. Everyone's shields got a big boost in strength and they also got armor on top of that. This means that is is hard as hell to kill someone by ramming them with a vehicle. There are some things you can do to make it easier:
- Unlock and fully upgrade the "Hell of Wheels" perk.
- Max out vehicle skill.
- Use the Cerberus.
- Cerberus is in Shadow War or Freight Yard (Easy to find in Freight Yard)
One of the downsides to the Cerberus is that it takes damage every time you hit someone with it. This damage can be fixed by exiting the vehicle and then quickly re-entering it.
Now, even having done all of this, it is still going to be REALLY hard to kill people with their souped up perks and gear. This means that you are going to have to boost this with friends. Boosting this game is hit and miss because you'll never be guaranteed to get a game lobby to yourself. With the game going free-to-play mid July 2014 I would imagine it is only going to get harder.
If you do mange to get into a decent boosting situation. You are going to want to knock the other players armor and shields off before you run them over. This will almost guarantee a kill when you hit them while boosting the engine. Bio weapons knock off armor pretty fast if you want to use those.How do we get into the same match if we aren't in a group?
Glad you asked.
To get into the same match you will both have to be on the same sever. Just "friend" the other player and then "go to" them in the menu. Once you do that you will be on the same server. Then you can both search for Freight Yard and end up in the same game.
