Played a few rounds of Team Rumble tonight, just to blow off some steam and get a few of my "<Weapon X> eliminations" challenges completed. Naffed the first game like a noob, but I ended up on a pretty impressive (for me) kill streak in the last game, at one point taking out 4 players almost back-to-back-to-back using just a Suppressed Pistol.

Which leads me to finally ask the question, what's the benefit of a Suppressed weapon compared to the regular variant, other than the quieter noise? Does your target not notice they're getting hit or something? It seemed like one or two of the people I was shooting at didn't even notice I was there -- I fired at one guy from behind at nearly point-blank range and he didn't even turn around until he was almost dead. Or was it just dumb luck on my part?

EDIT: Oops, didn't notice I double-posted.

Man, whoever thought it was a good idea to have the Power Level for events tied to Storm Defense progress should be ashamed. I'm getting tired of having to requeue over and over because all I'm getting are PL 15 - PL 40 for my PL 70 Frostnite missions.

Hey folks sorry if you get this alot - just interested in what the current state of cross progression is for fortnite. My kid has an account that's solely linked to the switch but also has a ps4. I've been wary of going anywhere near linking it to the ps4 after all the previous fuss. I do know they've began (?) implementing changes there, but is it still a total no no linking his account to the ps4?

you can log onto the same epic account across any device and carry over your progression, the only thing that hasn’t been implemented yet is merging two separate accounts together

Account linking should be fine. They're still working on getting all the items you unlocked on different accounts together (account merge), they postponed that to early 2019.

Right, fantastic folks, thanks for the time :) there's only the one account at all, which is linked to the switch game, no fortnite on the ps4 at the minute, so I don't need to merge anything, I just worried if I did put fortnite on his ps4 and linked the account there too that he might get locked out of fortnite on the switch (I remember something about if an account had been linked to psn it wouldn't work on other consoles?)

You're correct, for the longest time Sony prevented cross-play on PlayStation 4 and held your account hostage. They've since changed their stance (at least for Fortnite) and made it possible :)

Started playing around Christmas I like the game a lot enough to get battle pass.

Im still hot garbage at the game, learning to build on reflex will take me a while. And it seems like a lot of the daily challenges I only come close completing them on team rumble and maybe get lucky doing some of the harder battle pass challenges

Funny observation they should not allow balloons in rockets only. One guy got a few and he was literally King of the battle field. Nobody was able to shoot him out the sky.

Is there a general resetera key so we all can play together?

does anyone actually like the six shooter? this is a legit question considering i’m not great at the game - and it might come down to my lack of skill using the thing - but right now it feels like the absolute worst gun to use in most situations.

Its the worst gun in the game by far

It's good in early game if you land at a busy place & get one, but I don't think it holds up when people gain shields & mats
Tac SMG 4 lyf :(
Miss the Silenced SMG too though.
And yet we still have scoped Assault Rifle. Who has ever used it unless absolutely forced to?

It's too weak, I rather have the revolver back, it was at least a worse Deagle and fun, if also mostly bad. But with the Deagle and Silence/Pistols the Six Shooter is just outclassed completely.

I think everyone hates the six shooter. The Silenced Pistol seems to be the best, but for all of the pistols there seems to be a pretty weird bloom effect going on...or maybe im just not aiming it right?

I saw a few people mentioning the six shooter would be cool if they changed it to a dual six shooter

Yeah Six shooter is redundant in the current sandbox. I only pick it up when I have no other option but immediately discard it for anything else.

Then it would still just be a worse version of an AR

Pistols should just all have perfect accuracy, no bloom at all even while moving and jumping. That would make them more unique and potentially useful.

Man Snow Foot looks so good but also too similar to Spider King which I already have... it's a bummer that Epic has pretty much shut down leakers making it harder to know if anything better is coming soon.

The ice ‘jitter’ is easily the worst bug in the game. Got it for the first time yesterday and almost threw up.
The constant screen shake, right? Happened to me a couple weeks ago and I had to stop for a few after that match because I was so nauseous. Although my game bugged out when I got on a zipline IIRC.

Wait, doing Canny's SSD 6 unlocks star level 4 in the new setup? That's fucking insane. Canny would be a bitch with just 3 star heroes all the way through. Some of the later areas can be tough with 4 stars.

If that's what it says when you try to evolve to a 4 star hero / schematic then yeah. I can't evolve anything up to 5 stars unless I complete Twine Peaks SSD4 and I barely made it past the first one with 1 other player helping. I don't remember what I had to do to get to 4 stars because it was before the update, but I'm pretty sure I had 4 star heroes on CV SSD6.

You 100% do not need more than 3* heroes for CV.

Your weapons and traps are what matters, and even they don't need to be higher than 3* in CV.

It was in the third skill tree before. Pretty easy to get what you wanted quickly. In fact, I think the old skill tree is way better than what we have now. I'm just glad I had already nabbed my 4 star heroes before the change.

Sorry, I main an ability based hero, so all my damage comes from my tech skills and ability multiplier. That's where my perspective comes from.

The majority of which comes from your FORT stats, your overall PL, not your Hero's power level. 3-4* boost in hero stats is negligible relative to the content.

3* is more than enough.

Was there no update this week? I don't think I've downloaded an update file. We're still waiting for that progression bug to be fixed in STW.
