In this Defiance tips and tricks video, we are going to talk about "scoring high in group events (like sieges, incursions, arkfalls etc.). Sorry, no love for BMG's in this tutorial.

Summary:

First Part (Principles):
It's important we take a look at how the "scoring mechanics" work first - so you have an idea on how to play around them, and ultimately do things that produce more points.

Second Part (Application):
1. "Juice" the ground with nano-effects inducing shots. some of the items you can use include Sludge RL, Corruptor, Northstar Blaze, Bio Grenade (this is your secondary weapon)

2. "Cut down" enemies with high DPS weapon like "tachmags" (a Hellfire one is nice for enemies without shield, a plate slicer VOT Blaster for Volge)

NOTE: At 4:02 I mentioned something about "double Opportunist" bonus" - turns out this might just be the score climbing up the screen, and not really a double bonus running at the same time.

Also, I'm not really the best person in PvE, so there's a big chance I might need to make a follow video for this. Feel free to comment to "fill the holes" for the follow up video (if there's a need). Thanks!

Thanks for the input. Anything outside the BMG love fest though? :)

Use a good bmg. Not a funny comment, this will REALLY get you to #1 spot.

Actually a corruptor and smg beats out a bmg for most of the current armistice events.

WHY haven't they added back into the scoreboard just a damage done total column. Doesn't have to have anything to do with the scoring. Though it would be nice to know which players are whoring themselves out for points by using bmgs and, which are actually pulling their weight. Would be nice to know who to respect and who to dismiss.


They had it in there in the past. is it that difficult to add it in now. Again ?


Hire a original code monkey back or something ? ... j/k

Great idea buddy. I'd like this actually :)

Shield Spanner/CF loadout works for everything. If lag tears start falling, fire up the SS/Bloodhound loadout.

Always a high score+bonus chat tears.

Profit. :p

On the serious side, for the Inflicteds or DM's, etc,... I like to spam the field with my HB Northstar with elec nano to warm everybody up and get them dancing, them mow them down with my RS Blast rifle/CF/big boomer. Much funz and great AF production.

Your vid in the op didn't show up for me. YouTube brackets work better for those of us not on a pc.

This crap won't get you top score at a Volge Siege/Incursion OR an Afflicted Siege Incursion.
I can guarantee that.
Even the suggestion of Shield Spanner/CF is not going to get best in show.
CF has good damage PER shot; but not good sustained dps. I've tried. Believe me. And I have an excellent OJ Bio CF.
A good semi-auto Sniper Rifle is better (with a good LMG, AR, or SMG as the "lead weapon").
And as far as Afflicted are concerned: Fire. Especially AOE Fire. 'Nuff said.

What machine gun is your favorite pair for your sniper?

For volge sieges I used a bio saw and syphon saw and score high. I stopped when RNG stopped dropping ojs

Ark falls I no longer do because I am old school so RNG does not give me any decent rewards

On afflicted sieges back when I used to do them .......I used an invader and a video bio ar.

and a video bio ar.

I've got to get me one of these, vid em as you kill em.

On topic I've found the easiest way to come top in incursions is to be in there from the start. The Kenn farm infected ones I did with low ego toonz was to use a white sludge rl and a green invader.
Top of the board every time.
Same goes for mutant and volge except I used a bio ar/invader combo.
This is a good way for low egos to get their weapons levels to 20.

Sieges I don't worry about getting a top score but make sure I do enough for a top tier reward.
I use a bio ar for the most part and switch to a fire ar if there's time.
A lot of the time there's quite a few guys shooting volge that's not worth switching.
The fire ar comes into its own when I do inflicted sieges and you get dot from fire.
