    extinction load outs

      what is the best load out for a 4 player game of extinction on the nightfall map?

          Medics. Medics. Medics. Ok no. 3 medics and 1 engineer. Have the engineer use body armor since they will eventually have a larger wallet. Get them to activate as many traps as possible for every hive, ESECIALLY when you are in the weapon facility.

           

          Riot shields are also fantastic. I would say have a couple of people use sentry guns, and a couple use vultures. Ammo... that's somewhat down to preference (a lot prefer armor piercing, I prefer explosive).

           

          Have your medics get upgraded to +3 (4 skill points) as soon as possible, since there are so many scorpions on Nightfall.

            what would you think is the best weapon(s) to use?

                Personally, I'd try upgrade your pistol to +3 (4 skill points) so you can carry two primary weapons. I really like the Chainsaw, LSAT or Maverick. That's personal preference though. I'd only recommend the two LMGs though, if one of you is using Team Booster, and is supplying it constantly, or rather a lot anyway, since they have very slow reloads, and you will easily get downed if you don't use Team Booster and are anything other than a Weapon Specialist.

                 

                On the hives in the weapon facility, try have your vultures fully upgraded (both people), because you get a fair few rhino's and enemies, and having two of them + you guys all shooting, kills the rhino's much faster - since the fully upgraded vultures fire rockets/missiles.

                It is my view that people need to get away from using the sentry guns on Nightfall as the Vulture seems to be more useful on Nightfall, especially in the indoor parts of the map. People seem to think that because sentries where the way to go on P O C that the same aplies on Nightfall, which IMO opinion, this is defo not the case. Anyone agree or disagree ?

                    I agree. Although there are some awesome spots to put sentrys in nf (on top of the electrified metal crate in the 2nd section) I've only been able to beat it with a vulture. I use completely different strategies on poc and nf. For poc I run weapon specialist, lmg's, and sentries. For nf I run tank, submachine gun, and vulture.

                    Either 4 medics or 3 medics 1 engineer.

                     

                    I tried weapons spec last night again, and managed to almost have 0 downs...breeder had just a tad of orange left when she opened up on me and handed me my first down.

                     

                    While a weapons spec can be handy, especially with the 90 second challenge, with a good team (which are super hard to find for NF), all medics can work quite well. all run explosive, some vultures, some IMS, portable turrets/shields, personal preference. 2 armor, 1 feral, 1 booster.
