    Um...help please

    Ok, so I'm a noob. I'm trying to figure out how to do persuits, get some armor, and find a better gun cause the rifle Nolan gave me ain't cutting it no more. I could REALLY use some pointers here. Like how do you earn reputations. And again, how do you complete a persuit.

    Rep/contracts doesnt open up till ego 250? Or something like that. As for pursuits, just see what you need for them and go after each bullet point! Kills, discoveries, data recorders, completeing side missions, driving distances, spins... etc whatever it may be. A good spot for the 1080 and 720 degree roller spins is to climb to the top of the san fran golden gate bridge, spawn a quad, and just drop off and spin

    First thing youll want to do, is just drive the roads on the map to open up some fast travel points so you can spawn to different areas of the map to chase pursuit needs.

    There are supply vendors at nearly every fast travel point that sell guns, they're not the best guns ever but they did me right until my ego was higher and I started getting a decent collection of guns to pick from

    A piece of advice I always give out to new players in zone chat asking for help: save your scrip and your arkforge. Unless someone's cutting you an amazing deal on a great gun, you probably don't need to lay down the first 100k you make on weapons you likely won't use for long. As for arkforge, there will come a time when you'll wish you had more (even if you do save it up)

    in short, don't spend tons of scrip on items from players (as well as arkforge to level said items with you) until you've learned a bit more about the game and how you wanna play it.

    I think I've only bought maybe 4 new guns. 2 of which where pistols. The rest I've picked up. But I've gotten far enough along on some of the missions that the guns I'm using just arnt getting the Job done. Even after unloading whole mags on a single target I'm barley doing damage and am kinda at a standstill. My ego rep is at 253 presently. And for the life of me I can't find any other armor/outfits other than Nolan and irisa's. I have been saving my scrip also, played enough if these games to know that. It's just all the missions and such that I'm doing and I'm not earning much of anything

    Some pursuits award outfits, you can also buy the outfits from the starting classes at the supply vendor at the erep camp (northwest corner of the map, one of your first fast travel points). When you earn enough reputation with the defiant few you can buy a few outfits from that vendor. You can also purchase bits with real world currency and buy outfits with those.

    Edit: One of the reasons you may be doing low damage is if there are a lot of other players around and the threat level (small flaming icon in the top left near your shield and health bars) has been raised. This will boost your ego and the ego of your weapons (and thus your damage), but I find when I'm playing on my lower ego alt that sometimes it feels like my gun is firing marshmallows

    You can NOT buy the starting class outfits from the Erep vendor. Only the starting class helms are there. Unless the outfits were added to it in the last month or so.

    That would be wonderful.

    Persuits confuse me honestly. Like the recordings for example. How are you meant to find them all? There no indicator on the map or anything as such except the white stars when you get close to one
