At what EGO will I see an upgrade in my solo openworld personal threat level or is it just 3 forever after a certain EGO?

Goes up to 6 at 5500, 5 at 4500, 4 at 3500 etc if I recall correctly

Pretty sure it depends on where you are or what you're doing too. I'm at 5200 and still see TL 3 at the sniper ridge daily. It's kinda fun when you roll up on someone struggling and you wipe everything out in 5 seconds and run away.

I think mount tam has lowered threat levels due to it being where new players arrive in the game, it never used to be like that but the were a lot of complaints, new players weren't enjoying trying to remove 9 armour plates with their no nano tutorial acquired guns

It's definitely dependent on what event you are doing. At 5400 ego I still see TL 1 sometimes when I'm solo. Most of the time it's 4 or 5 though.

With that said I occasionally see threat level 1, but only ever in silicon valley, and usually at those incursion type things, and a solo wm at 5900 is a threat level 2, open world has no threat level so location does make a difference activity dependant, but generally speaking its TL 6 @ 5500+ TL 5 @ 4500 TL 4 @ 3500 etc when you're alone at conflict sites, major arkfalls also have different threat levels when solo though I can't remember values as its been a few months since I soloed one (during frontier harvest event)

We have a lot of calculations on DD about scaling and Threat Level: http://www.defiancedata.com/page.php?id=205

It was late and I was going a sf incursion, the volge one. I was like " wow my gun is ripping thru the volge like paper" I think I was at TL2. Humbled.

I wish we had tl9 or 10 once we hit the cap. I miss the challenge of fighting stronger enemies when I'm playing solo

Easy enough to start a new toon for the "challenge".

Way better that than sticking an unsuspecting newb with a TL 10 when you shop at Happy Pow.

I actually drag my 5900 on my main account around to help my lowbies level faster. Higher TL = More Mobs = More XP. Win-Win.

Good in a group setting like arkfalls and incursions.

Sucks the root for regular game play, contract sites, etc.

I find it more handy in the opposite manner. During Arkfalls and Incursions, you can't force the TL up to get the extra spawns. I take advantage of the EGO scaling without buffing the enemy health and damage for more players being present.
