Nightfall Unbeatable

sbfenix

So me and 2 other friends can easily beat the first extinction fine, but we've gotten to the 2nd to the last wave every time in nightfall, and it seems like they overwhelm the hunters and enemies to even get past half way on the drill within the 3 area.  PLEASE LOWER THE ENEMY SPAWN OR THE AMOUNT OF HUNTERS EVERY ROUND!!!!!!

    Its not that hard at all. Its all about defense and what your team is running. Medics and engineers are a must. keep the medics closer to the drill as they can stand within the scorpion gas without a worry and make sure that the venom gun thing is used on the drill to deter aliens from jumping on it.

     

    I use medic with, Explosive rounds, Shield, Vulture, Armour.

     

    I can get to the final breeder every time. it usually here the team lets me down.

     

    If you want a game or two and are on X1 send me a message and I will have a run through with you.

    Make sure you have engineers hitting the traps at the bottom, or it is incredibly difficult (but not impossible, we didn't know about those on my first victory).

    It"s unfortunate that you believe Nightfall is "unbeatable". Maybe you should be grateful that you are able to play/have the map. Unlike PS3 we are still waiting until Feb. 27. Instead of whining, why not have more skill, team support,and yet most important communication between everyone on team. I've seen some gameplay videos on Youtube with people playing Nightfall, and the whole time I'm screaming at them; team support is wack, lack of communication, they don't complete challenges, it's horrible! Bottom line, if you find it hard try and find better players!

    I might catch some heat for this but I agree with you. I difficulty jump from poc to nf is insane. I am a huge zombies fan and bought ghost only for extinction after I played poc at a friends house and had a blast. Granted, I'm primarily a solo player for zombies and extinction but I don't like the argument that extinction is a team based game when there's clearly a solo play option. The only solo game play victory I've seen so far is from relaxingend who's an amazing player, ran no relics, downed twice, and had a bunch of clutch moments.

     

    Now, I don't think it should be easy for a casual player to complete it, but I do think it should be in the realm of possibility.  Of course, the relics are an option if you think it's easy and will get you higher on the leaderboards, generally.

      The reason it is a team based game is due to the different classes and things to choose from. Sure, solo play is not team based because it is just one of you, that and you are getting more money quicker. The more people you have on the team, the harder it gets. And you can run more than just armor like most probably do in solo. With a team of 4, you coordinate everything with each other. One guy dispenses ammo and armor, while another throws boosters and explosives, or feral. It doesn't mean you cannot beat the game without teamwork, it is just more difficult and tedious work, and not as fun.

    my 3 friends and i have beaten the first extinction with 3 relics on and we all have every perk and custom class maxed out.  Im not whining, im saying its more difficult than the first extinction map.  If your seriously going to come onto here and complain that you cannot get the maps until feb 27, then buy an xbox, get ghosts, and play nightfall with me.

    Post like this one is what makes me want this DLC on PS3.

    POC has gotten so easy and I do hope that NightFall will offer a better challenge.

     

    So please don't patch anything until PS3 players get a go at it; we might suggest ways to make it even more challenging.

      I'm fine with more challenging, but some of the challenges (IE, the ones that reward skill points) still need patching. Phantom in air is annoying, but possible. Sometimes you get kill 10 seekers and only get 8. Also you get a take no damage challenge...which is pretty much shot if you don't have a flare.

       

      It just pisses me off that at this point I've missed comp achievement by 1-2 challenges the past like 4 escapes...

        The don't take damage one is actually good and easy if you're in the weapons facility and have an Engineer with fully upgraded class. They drop in from the roof, and BAM they're dead. Easy lol.

    I've finished it a couple of times now but never with less than 4 people.. it could be the difficulty with less people in needs to be tweaked slightly.

    As long as everyone has 2 sentry guns each, at least 1 person with full upgraded explosive ammo by the second area & as long as you don't stray too far from each other, it's hard to lose.

    I aggre with everyone else as well. Not hard just have to have the right things going for you. If your playing two people should be pretty easy. I generally use Medic due to the scorpion gas and have vulture maxed out. Make sure you are activating the traps in the center of the map there are two of them. Those should take care of most of your problems. And make sure to save Venom for the Rhinos really shouldnt need it for anything else. Good luck and good hunting

    Its not unbeatable.I usually get past the breeder,but thats when we all die.

    Im sorry so your telling me that nightfall is really hard... I managed to complete nightfall on hardcore first attempt with my team. one person ran 2 relics and another ran all 5 relics. we were able to beat it still. I personally had stun ammo +3 and weapon specialist maxed. because in hardcore you get less skill points and we were fine. now if people are still struggling with regular without relics, then its simply your teamwork and each players individual skill. just work on those two things and get a good strategy going. the engineer putting those electric traps at the end pretty much kills atleast 25% of all the aliens. you just need to get better at the game, its not unbeatable, actually yeah its hard but strategy and teamwork is crucial. im starting to worry for those who think mayday will be the same. oh its too hard, without trying everything
