Was I the only person who got his face rocked by a single Volge? I mean,I'm not bad at this game. Seen an emergency titled "Blow Up the Volge" (or something like that,I think) and seen just two Volge hanging out (why does this sound dirty?). Decided drive over to kindly inform them that they were about to be blown up. Only to have my vehicle instantly explode and catch some pretty hot rounds to the face. Went down instantly.

I'm not much for whips and chains...but I think I like this.

They certainly fight harder than other enemy groups, but their troopers have a serious weakness with us being right handed and them being lefties, its easy to just kite corners and pop their heads :P Bombers are the ones that kick me in the groin the most.

Yeah I noticed their weapon arm too. Meanwhile,a Viscera just reached in and murdered my soul. Hit me so hard that even my EGO was like "Hey let's use that weapon to break up the crystal!" and I'm like "WHAT?! There's no crystal! What's wrong with you?!"

I think syphon also works pretty good. For me at least. Syphon and some obstacles. For any damage you take,fire a few shots and replace the lost shields/health. As for doing it alone,it seems to be a mixed bag. They scale up with the more people there,but you get the benefit of distraction.

I don't know what system you are playing on, but on PS3, electricity is the worst to use. The volge do not stun. I guess for a species designed for war, they never developed the ability to dance. All electricity does is a 1 point tick, not even flash grenades are worth a poo.

My elec SAW made them double over for free shots. Wouldn't that be a stun? I mean a tall tning like that going on all fours for a minute would be kinda noticeable....

The 'Blow up the Volge' emergency also has two elites for the last part which makes them even more fun for your first attempt. Driving up to those two without knowing what they are is a painful lesson. Especially when you rez before realizing they just tossed two splash grenades.

I was playing earlier today and came across a Volge emergency on the road leading from Shoshana's Consulate. I drove past them when I saw it was Volge and saw it was an emergency (I had no idea the Volge were being released). I turned around and drove back, exited my vehicle and equipped my bolt action sniper rifle. I thought two or three shots should take care of them just like the tougher Dark Matter. I aimed for the head of one (there were three), fired and hit with a critical head shot. My jaw dropped when I noticed all that did was drop his shield by a little less than 1/4. That's when I called up my vehicle and drove away. This is going to require a little more planning.

I wondered what Voges are when I read about them this morning in the forum) , later today i ran into them near the Tower (San francisco) it was an emergency, i don´t know what it was called, but there were three to four smaller ones and a huge one :rolleyes. I liked it, died three times, then played hide and seek with the big one, kept running around the vehicle, and used my brand new orange VOT spiker protector on him , it certainly wasn´t the most heroic victory but victory is a victory :p

After watching the Movie Battleship, I now have an image of the Volge. If you've never seen the movie, the Aliens in it have a weapon arm, and a normal arm.

They also wear combat armor. Hence they seem to be pretty much Volge.

Yes, I think it was rude to be introduced to these folks without warning. I was driving by mining my own business. Went to visit a farm to play around with the raiders. Noticed a new group of folks actually fighting the raiders and thought I would join in only to get b*tch slapped that threw me back about 200 yards. I shook it off and did what most folks would do....took out my Dodge and ran like a yipping dog back to a safe base to figure out what the hell just happened.

Decided to return to the crime scene and this time a little more prepared. Wiped out my Sniper Rifle and attempted to practice on one only to find out they all work together and do not go down easily. Resumed the Dodge challenge and ran back to the safe base to do my soul searching.

Decided to avoid that farm until I got my bearings and found two on the road with a nice special weapon laying on the ground.....rushed to get it and that beauty gave me the courage I needed after two one shot one kills of these damn things. Found another group of them a few yards away on a hill beating down some poor folks. Decided to help and sure enough, I was able to take down 3 of those turds, with one magic spiked one that can blur......he went down in time but I am liking these new folks!!!

The Volge are excellent enemies, so glad they've added them. I completely underestimated them in my first encounter and got wrecked. My bolt action does only marginal damage to their health and shields, even on headshots. It takes a lot to stagger them as well and they aren't stunned by nano effects.

Even after taking out most of the, the viscera charged at me around a vehicle when I wasn't expecting it and downed me. Reminded me of Biotic Charge from Mass Effect Vanguards (new EGO power please :D)

I love they're a real challenge and can be highly dangerous enemies to the unprepared.

I think I kinda like the surprise appearance. Like stumbling onto them randomly. It was nice for what I thought was going to be a "log in,look for an arkfall,complete it,exit game" scenario. Instead,I was removed violently from my vehicle and bent over a tree stump by reptilian creatures....well that isn't exactly enjoyable,but I'm sure you guys get what I'm saying,right?...RIGHT??? ;_;

There needs to be more surprises, its not like death means anything or your lose anything (except 180 scrip)

I would love to see more random and deathly stuff
(1) Ark falls (when they hit the ground) should do more damage (and maybe kill) those nearby
(2) More pods (the ones that nuke you from range) should random spawn at random spots (they would be like snipers against you)
(3) Make the Dark Matter snipers almost one shot you!
(4) Give us CHAMP Volge, the elites are fun, but something that needs a few people to kill, like a CHAMP version would be cool, but make then out of the way (not on the road) as that would kill the solo players.

Volge are fun. It makes a huge difference what kind of weapon you are using. With slow firing guns I was getting beaten into a pulp. Then I tried my assault rifle and was doing better. Then I used a SMG (with syphon nano effect) and overcharge and it ate right through them. That is until a Viscera charged through a hillside, a large rock formation and a truck to pound me...
That is the one thing I would like to see looked at: charging through "solid" objects. The main problem with that being that you can't see the enemy to have a chance to react.

Even though they've said so far they have no plans to implement Razor Rain into the game, it would be really awesome to see that as well as normal weather sometime. They could get you some visual cues before it starts in the area and force players to outrun the storm or find shelter to survive.

The Volge gave us a lot of laughs in Clan chat yesterday. We had members logging on then they'd come onto the chat screaming about how had it was killing this new creature called Volge.

One guy said he was driving along, day dreaming about where to go to grind dailies. Next thing he knew, his car explodes and he is killed with just two shots to the back.

I can say this, the roads are no longer safe to just blindly drive on.
