This game in a nutshell
By - Adhesive_Onion66
Maybe I'm just good at stealth and survival games but I don't find it too hard to escape, heal, and re-engage.
I win about as much as I lose as the predator tbh.
Bruh it happened the exact same thing today lol, i leaped all the way across the map an they chased me and threw grenades where I was healing
between the fact that the fireteam is OP (stfu cry babies about pred being OP--folks like you ruined F13) and the fact that my shit randomly pulls out weapons I'm NOT selecting or gets stuck aiming in said weapons, this game as shitty and buggy as F13. Got my refund immediately.
I just played my first match as the Predator, after about 30 games as Fireteam.
There is no excuse for Predators to not win every match.
Two full-charge Plasma blasts will down anyone. Then don't collect; use that downed player to draw out the rest. Once you see where they all are, you just go in.
You can go-ham on two at the same time.
Then, after you've claimed two of them, follow the survivors, and when they either go to reinforce or extract, go-ham on the rest.
As a fireteam player, all of my Predator kills are on greedy Predators or just laughably sloppy plays. I really don't know how any serious Predator fails to win every single match.
Bro, try to fully charge a plasma shot without being melted
Are you keeping the laser on-target, or are you pointing it away while it charges to conceal what you're doing?
Booth ways I get spoted, headshoted, blown up before I even try to leap, I guess it depends on the fireteam or predador player, there are some guys who can spot u a mile away on ps4
Yeah, there's also the spot spammers which is annoying. That is literally the only thing I think really needs a rework (Maybe parry too that doesn't stun but instead negates basically 95% or even full damage that a predator does. Just so that way parry spammers can no longer stun lock the predator)
I mean, the thing is, sometimes you can't even see the laser from the plasma cannon, though I don't know if its a glitch or some strange tech preds use. And I am not even talking about the perk that makes the laser harder to see. You just can't see it. Even when looking directly at the pred.
Clearly you haven’t been up against actual decent players as predator. Don’t get me wrong, it’s much more balanced than what it used to be but, in my opinion. FT is stronger than the Predator, in the right hands. PC death squads and good PlayStation players are proof of that.
Uh oh your gonna bring the ft mains out telling us to play ranged just for them to get mad at us for not engaging.
Mf there are people I run into who use exclusively melee on the scout that down entire teams that do exclusively predator hunts. People just suck at pred. Hell I play as exclusively fire team and I still get 5 kills as pred.
See that’s not the predator being op it’s the fireteam being trash
Dude the people I play with fucking demolish people. And they get slapped around often too. It’s not the Fireteam being trash nor the Predator OP. It’s balanced. Hell, the Predator has more classes now and does more damage per hit.
I didn’t say I demolish people. Hell I’m the only one who dies often. And my comment was no “r/imverybadass” material.
If you think that's some kind of fake badass boasting I think you're just bad at the game.
It's okay not to be good, mind you, I don't think I'm great at this game, but being toxic about it isn't cool.
Actually, it’s the reverse. There are so many Predator players that can and will end a match before you even make it to the first objective. Remove target isolation from the first two minutes of the match and fix the Predator spawn locations.
The fact that some of these people will sit and wait ten or twelve minutes to get into a lobby and then proceed to decimate the fireteam, instead of hunting them, just shows how flawed and skewed the game really is.
I'd be all for this if they also gave more time to do the hunting, I use the initial isolation to work out my first ambush spot.
I agree. Twenty minute rounds. Give the fireteam a slight speed buff if they stick together, to encourage actually working as a team and not running around like a bunch of baked potatoes. The amount of “good Predators” far, far outweighs any number of decent fireteams right now. It’s gotta be the recent update.
I hate the fact that you can load into a match and a Predator can literally end it in just a few minutes. It’s my biggest complaint and really the only complaint. I’m not saying the Predators need a nerf. Not at all. But holy shit man, cut this bullshit out. Maybe have the Predator start off without their gear and have them go secure it from an NPC camp. Just do something to get them off the fireteam right as the match starts.
My experience as a predator main has been half the time a 4 man group who obviously have VC and pre planned loadouts where in order to win I have to resort to stuff that makes me feel dirty to not even kill all of them, or a team of randoms who immediately split up and make the game unfun in how easy it is.
Very rarely I'll get a team that feels like a fair hunt.
I can’t speak to having a fully organized team, because I solo queue. However, I can tell you right now, solo queue fireteams are like papier-mâché to many Predators. It really is the stupid ones that tend to go down easily. It’s not even fun when that happens, to be honest. Sometimes the greedy ones go down. The ones that aren’t playing it safe.
When I first started, winning matches seemed about even. Maybe slightly skewed toward Predator, but this was around the time of the last big update. But now... dude, you can barely win as a fireteam. You get absolutely shredded. It’s insane. And not everyone can play like Wolf_Mike_1998. So, the “git gud” shit is kinda retarded. I don’t want to say the Predators need a nerf, as I think that was the problem before the update... but the data will speak for itself, I’m sure. Whenever illfonic decides to take a look.
I have yet to touch the Predator and I have full confidence that I would go in and shit on 8 out of 10 fireteams. If you don’t keep fireteams playing, Predator queues will jump even higher. You think waiting ten minutes is bad right now? Does anyone remember the wait times for AvP back on PS3 and Xbox 360? Jesus.
I will be honest, when I do play Fireteam, I honestly find it a little easier, but maybe I just luck out on good teammates. Or maybe I'm just good at shooter games.
I think that, while the balance is technically fair, I feel like the extremes need to be toned down, and the predator shouldn't be reliant so much on lucking out on the skill of the Fireteam.
I would live-stream my experience on the game, but meh. It’s not even worth it. As someone who destroys at stealth games, I already know that most people wouldn’t be a challenge against any Predator I put together right now.
There are outliers. People that have played the living hell out of the game, like Wolf_Mike_1998... they wreck even experienced Predators. I think that may be where some of the problem lies for Predator mains. You’re going up against more teams that are partied together—teams with exceptional players? Like I said, the solo queue groups are being used as toilet paper.
A solo Scout Duelist can practically second wind a Predator by themselves and you're saying you want them nerfed lol. And no, I can practically carry most public lobbies by myself as a Scout Duelist, Fireteam doesn't need anymore speed as most missions take around 5-10 minutes. Find some friends and actually play as a squad and you'll see a huge difference. And I play more of Fireteam than Predator but holy shit I lost as Predator in under 2 minutes of the match, so worth it after waiting 10 minutes to a lobby.
Not suggesting a nerf. A simple fix to the way many of these matches play out would be nice. As a fireteam, it’s kind of irksome to spend an upwards of four minutes in total, going from the queue to hitting the ground, and then everyone getting slaughtered along the way to the first objective.
The Predator having to go retrieve some gear before moving to the fireteam would at least give people time to breathe at the start of a match. The matches themselves would need to be extended. It’s not a nerf. And I don’t really know how best to promote the fireteam to work together, but a lot of the time they don’t. It’s probably quite pathetic to watch as a Predator, I’m sure.
It’s not fun to hunt shit players, if I have to hold back to the point were I could only use my wrist blades for the rest of the match and win in a minute thirty.
No it’s not. I hate the extremes of this game. Either the fireteam is dogshit or they’re on point and it makes it very difficult for the Predator to do much of anything, unless they’re VERY good at the role.
I say get gud!
“Get gud” is a moot point when one team relies on everyone being on their A-game and bringing appropriate gear and builds... yet the solo guy can slap together any half-assed arsenal, and build, and wipe his ass with our skulls.
Lol! Git Gud!
Nah, you’ll just keep getting fireteams that do nothing but knife parry is all. Until you actually want the issues addressed.
What issue of you being ass at the game? Sure How can I help you get better!
The game is Fireteam Hunting Grounds featuring the Predator. If you have a full man squad you should never be losing so again
You have the mentality of a 5 year old :)
So now people are making fake accounts of me. Great. Just goddamn great.
I bet I would stomp your ass in the ground lmao.
Maybe maybe not.
Yeah, well I can guarantee you I won’t if I got nothing but baked potatoes on my team. Half the people that play this seem to have flunked out of high school. 😂
You are not lying there! Gotta make friends with the ft that kill you so tht you can have not potatoes
Pc or Ps?
Or just get good?
I love hunting bad Predators..😎
There are few THAT good pred players who can kill 4 good ft players who work together. They should bring in matchmaking by lvl tiers. 0-50-100-150. Maybe that would help
Help that you don't have situation where you can kill while ft in 30 secs, and other way around..ofc that's only one of the issues.
why is it so easy for the fireteam to kill the predator but hard to kill the fireteam
I’m level 80 right now and I’ve been playing since mid April, I believe. Most fireteams do not work together. I’ve yet to actually even play a Predator. However, only an absolute idiot, or a greedy Predator, gets taken down by the majority of these people. You don’t long claim when their team is near. The first thing that will happen is Dutch will shoot an m203 straight into your spine and then autoshotty you until his gun clicks.
From all of my recent experience the best way to take out the fireteam is to actually play the way the Predator hunts in the films, with stealth, or to just build a devastator and rush in and wipe out two people, retreat, and go back in for the other two. Hell, I’ve had some Predators kill nearly the entire team in one room.
Because of a huge flaw, it’s called lack of git gud.
