Nothing make me more agitated about public games than when a weapon challenge like sniper kills pops up and I notice im the only trying to do it but everyone is destroying everything I am trying to kill. The challenge is just completely ignored. That's why they're called challenges people, sometimes they are challenging. To me they are the funnest one's. These are the games I back out on. Because oooooohh I'm not giving up my rapid fire for a stupid challenge. Jeez
Lol ikr, I don't care if I lose my attachments, if you hear them say that then tell them "there is a keep attachments upgrade for only 10t.
Yeah, most attachments don't transfer from a sub/assault to a sniper so doesn't really help.
Anyways, I always try to do the challenges unless I know for sure I can't (ex. They blast away at all the aliens not letting me get any kills). I really hated on Nightfall when the sniper challenge came up in the end (I was going for completionist) and no one helped me. We had all challenges except this one. Sad part was that I had managed to get 22/25 kills. Had one person helped would have gotten it so I just went solo and did that one.
A little nuance there, it's keep "valid" attachments.
It's only one challenge though. You won't die of not completing it.
If i play POC, and i didn't upgrade my pistols, i'm not gonna throw away a fully upgraded M27 for that challenge if it pops in the forest.
However if someone is attempting it, it's only natural you help out with flares and running, or holding them with a shield.
Even with a mic and/or chat people still shoot them when you throw a flare.
That's indeed frustrating.
I'm not complaining about. I'm pretty much explaining that losing 1 or 2 attachment will not change much. Attachments don't even matter in extinction, besides Ark, which transfers guns.
I run pistols only and if I'm playing with mic'd folks...I let them know up front. 1 person can get finish a weapon challenge as long as the team doesn't ignore (to your point) the challenge and is blasting away.
flares and running around seems to work well. It's team based, but some random pubs don't get it still.
It's definitely frustrating to be the only one attempting the challenge. i always go for each and every challenge that I am able to do. Thus can't do a gun challenge if I'm running pistols only. The thing is that we should have and use mic's and inform everyone at the start of the game if there are any challenges that we can't do.
I did not care if I lost any attachment even before the keep attachment upgrade was available.
But I understand that when I play with randoms, I'll meet all sorts and just make it my personal challenge to at least try to accomplish the challenge. I get annoyed when they don't try and maybe don't go out of my way to help them later in the game. Oh no! you down bro, that sucks. (depends of my mood)
But it is an entire different thing when not only do they not help and actually cause you to lose the challenge because they're stealing all your kills. It is maddening when they take all your kills with the wrong weapon or worse the freaking GT.
Can't do anything about it but finish the game and search for a new lobby (I want my teeth) but not before letting them know why you won't be playing with them anymore. Do it in a polite manner so that just maybe they'll learn.
I'm referring to POC in my previous post. I understand how newer players can feel overwhelmed on the other maps and don't expect them to do as well. But on POC, I expect to be able to complete every gun challenge on my own except for the sniper challenge at the cabin area. It can be so frustrating when someone gets all the kills with a GT while trying to complete a weapon challenge
A Lot of people were un aware of the vks location in that area, much easier to use especially with weapon specialist, but I get that u have no chance with people stealing your kills
That and I suck at being a sniper
The good thing is that always trying the challenges is helping me get better at it
