New player : best way to progress fast?

Recommended Posts

The dark side of the force seems strong on that forum : P

So new player here. Started yesterday, played a couple of hours. I am rank 7 with the Eng. and have a ride with 2,100+ power score, so still a baby. However, I am having a lot of fun and I am usually getting MVP or finishing in the top 3.

So... what to do to progress fast?

Economy
2 or 3 more game and I will be be able to build the extended fuel barrel (that give you 10 fuel per game)
Any other things I should do to get "easy" gold?
BTW, love the fact that there is not two type of currency in the game and a player market (old EvE player here, so feeling right at home. Just wish there was better reporting available) 

Weapons
At my level it's a machine gun feast with some canons showing up.
I bough the combi WW cabine from the market and run a built with 4 machine guns (love the accuracy and super fast rotation). Should I stick to an all MG build or try a canon/MG mix?

What the hell are skills?
Could not find a good guide on them.
Anyway to select which skill is getting developed? 

Build
Any good build to work on in the 2,200 / 3,000 PS range? 

Any other advice that can help progress fast?

Cheers,

Keep in mind... This is a free to play game, the best method for progressing fast is the same as in any other f2p out there: $$$

 

Don't put your hopes high with the fuel barrels, they give you 10 fuel, yes, but only if you win AND survive,  I will suggest you to aim for a rare weapon instead (wasp or defender are pretty good options) and leave the fuel barrels for a bit later

The easiest way to get gold at first is selling resources, scrap, wire and batteries, the more you level up the more ways you'll have to get gold, slow but steady ^^ 

As for your build.... This game revolves a lot around "test and error" I suggest you to try the most variation in your builds as possible, because in this game EVERY possible  build has a counter, that's why I never suggest to stick to a single playstyle, if so, you are always going to be countered by the same stuff and you may burn out of frustration 

About the skills... Well in the helmet icon to the left of your build icon in the garage you can see what every level does, but the changes of those skills are not really that impresive, I will suggest to let that aside for now until you find your prefered playstyle, and then focus on the skill tree that most benefits gives for that (As an example, I only have maxed out the nomad skills, since I use mg and autocannons the most) 

Progression is slow, you have to keep that in mind, but on the first levels you can use some decor if you have, and the faction flags, which give a little rep boost, it's not very noticeable at higher levels but for starters is nice ^^ 

And another advice that may not help to progress but will save you some headaches, don't put any new armor part you unlock on your vehicle just because yes, if you do that you will go up on your PS and you will face more experienced and better geared enemies

I say go for badges and daily missions. Scrap and wire should be easy to get, easy raid too, med raid might be more challenging depending of your ride. Sell those badges for the highest resource (electronic or plastic). Once you get some good weapon, go for batteries badges (5k power score) and you might wanna try invasion too.

It's all about badges, fuel barrels can get you a bit more income too, but your build becomes less effective with those.

Co-drivers (I think those are the skills you refer to. helmet button at bottom of garage) give small boosts to performance, but eventually become very expensive for marginal gains. They usually aren't very worth spending resources on until endgame (if at all), but the first few levels only need experience to attain, so equip the appropriate one based on your vehicle (they focus on weapons) to level them up the first few levels. Co-drivers are unlocked by joining factions, and stay with you even if you go to a different one.

in order to progress quickly you need to win, a lot, in both raids and PVP

 

Barrels are a must in early game, this will give you fuel to sell or to play raids. Make sure you always have the blue and the white barrel(except for raids).

Get wasps for PVP, high damage, low cost, need 2/3

Get vectors for PVE

 

Grind grind grind, then upgrade to spectres for PVE

 

Engineer tokens from weekly tasks will get you plastic and electronics, do not waste them on anything else. You only need plastic for epics, so no need to farm electronics until you are ready to craft your legendary parts, unless you need coin then you can get electronics to sell.

I am wining a lot atm (and I do not think it's possible to lose an Easy Raid :D ), probably bc I am playing low level atm. BTW is there a way to see your w/r ratio somewhere?

Wait, you can have several barrels at once? I thought they did not stack?

Option 2 (fast) quickly buy a pack for 30 or 40 dollars, then build my famous sideways hover (and grind with it) that now 3 of my friends are using daily :P it will cost you about 2000 coins, or maybe 30-40 USD. 

goodluck mate! Feel free to add me in game and ask any questions for advice. others are not so friendly. 

I did not want to sink any money until I knew what I was doing. I was actually looking at Packs, not just buying gold (the $10 new one or the one with spider legs).
So what is the issue with hover and sideways cabins?  Everybody seem to be complaining about them. What is the benefit to put your cabin sideways? Apart from looking funny of course :p

And where can I see that build?

In the faction section I guess? (not in front of my computer atm)

Why is the build less effective if you use a barrel? Because you have to make space for it and it is a weakness and potential hazard when it explode?
I put the one I got from mission loot below my cabin between frames and as far as I can tell, it never got hit. Is there a way to notice when it explodes?

This is my personal opinion, but I really dislike to run fuel barrel; build is much less efficent and easier to kill, you win less matches and extra income seems too small.If I could go back in time and give myself advice, it would be to not to use it. Now there is no problem with you trying to run it, but if there is any felling that the matches are becoming less fun, just ditch it.

1. Do daily challenges every day

2. Try to get 4000 and 5000PS build to get extra badges for pvp challenges; Growl cabin + Defenders work really well (+ eventually Generator/Cooling systems/Radar detector)

3. Get solid raid build to do medium and hard raids (both for the rare resources and extra badges):

  • All medium raids except chase can be easily completed with just Growl cab and some chords
  • Hard raids require solid builds; Vectors are one of the best weapons for them but Defenders would work too

4. Do brawls for badges, for players that pretty much have nothing, best brawl is Big Black Scorpions.

5. During weekends do Battle Royale for badges

6. Always burn your 200 free fuel

7. Exchange the badges for resources that sell the highest: plastic or electronics (though depending on future resource prices, Pathfinder crate may be an option)

Single type weapons builds are better. There are some exceptions  but those are for support weapons like kapkans or spark

Also Huntsman seems like a better white cabin than WW (atleast for me)

Cabin protects your hovers so you do not get immobilized, build can have more effective use of spaced armor and vehicle is smaller target from the front

1. It increases your PS so you face stronger opponents

2. It explodes

3. It cost you tonnage and maximum mass (doesn't really matter for low PS)

4. It takes space

On top of your screen, it's called challenge. Click on it, you can see the progress of your daily challenges and weekly challenges. Daily give scrap, weekly give badges. On this screen, you can also see the amount of badges you have, while weekly challenges restart every week (Sunday night), the badges you earned are kept forever until you to trade it for resource (that's their only purpose). To do that, on the same screen, you click "to workshop" then you decide what you wanna trade. 

You can put the white barrel (5 fuels per win) and the blue barrel (10 fuels per win) which in total give you 15 fuels, if you stay alive of course. Your build is less effective cause your power score increase with those barrels and they give you nothing in return during combat. In fact, they take space, mass and if they get destroyed, they explode. That's the trade off for making fuel.

Fuel barrel
If you do not run any, how do you get into Raid? you buy the fuel from the market?

Growl cabin does seem awesome.
How do you get it? The market or build it by grinding the Scavenger faction?

Why using Defender for PVP and Vector for hard raids? I would expect PVE to be easier therefore being able to use the more powerful weapon as the limited fire angle is less of an issue against bots

What exactly are brawls? The pvp mission on top of the battle screen?

<Always burn your 200 free fuel
I am not sure I understand that. This is the maximum number of raid you can do in a day?

<Single type weapons builds are better. There are some exceptions  but those are for support weapons like kapkans or spark
Any good low level canon build? I really like big alpha : ) However I guess that fast MG will eat any canon build 

<Also Huntsman seems like a better white cabin than WW (atleast for me)
I am afraid that you are right : )
For some reason I missed the Huntsman cabin. Well, at least I have some style with my WW : )

 

@AmongstEnemies

Will try to get in touch with you tonight (IMO you should really change that avatar pic ;) )

Fuel is "refilled" each day. Your maximum storage at the top of the screen in the "tank" (up to 200) is topped off each day. Fuel barrel/tank (The part, not the storage) give extra fuel from winning and surviving that is sent into storage. From there, it can be "poured into tank" (not the part, the reserve that is used in raids) or can be sold on market. Fuel in the "tank", whether free or poured in from storage, cannot be removed or sold. (yes, tank refers to both the part on the vehicle and the storage on the top of the screen)

Growl is from lunatics faction.

You should try to empty out your tank (top of screen) becasue it is refilled for free each day. (At max level, you get 200) if you have 180/200, it goes to 200/200, but if you empty it to 0/200, you still get refilled to 200/200 for free. This does not affect fuel in [storage]. You can do as many raids as you want, as long as you have the fuel.

Defender has more hp so players (who target weapons) will have a harder time taking them off. Raiders will shoot either cabin or weapons. Raiders will be fast and numerous, so vectors (with better range of motion) can handle them a little easier. Personally, I use defenders in raids for extra security, but you need to be maneuverable to pull it off.

Brawls are "for fun" modes with special rules and they cycle on a schedule.

I simply burn through my free 200 daily fuel. You can do 2 med + 2 hard raids, or 5 invasions per day.

Buying fuel makes sense in two cases:

1. You just need small extra to finish one of your weekly challenges

2. You run in a group or clan that extensively farm raids that can be done quickly for good rewards - especially Steel Cradle for electronics or plastic

Running fuel barrels yourself makes sense if you have solid build to do so, for example:

1. Vector/Spectre/Aspect hover

2. Spike hover

3. Low PS vehicle on Goliath tracks

4. Generally any very high PS vehicles (like 10k +)

Crafted mine myself (Lunatics workbench). Whether to craft something or buy it on the market; I decide by checking if value of selling resources required for craft + workbench rental is higher or lower compared to getting item directly from the market (tax included ofcourse).

Defender has slightly more damage but less precision and considerably limited firing angless (both horizontal and vertical). I used defenders for quite a long time for hard raids, but switched to Vectors to do escort raids easier (you often need to fire behind you in those)

Vector is awfull pvp weapon unless it is mounted on hover (in which case it is quite overpowered). Defender is really good pvp weapon, not only on variety of builds (tracked, wheeled, hovers) but it serves well through wide Power Score range ( I would say it is good till 8K, and even after that it is still solid).

I am not sure I understand that. This is the maximum number of raid you can do in a day?

How much free fuel you get per day is related to your engineer level, you can check in faction level rewards at what levels you get extra fuel (and more structural parts).

A Jawbraker cabin with 2 cannons (Avengers/Judges) mounted behind it is decent. But you need ammo packs for cannons .

They are kind of in the middle of the screen in different places. Brawl symbols are red and Battle Royale (which is available during weekends only) is yellow

For some reason I missed the Huntsman cabin. Well, at least I have some style with my WW : )

Defenders are better for PvP because there your enemies have brains and they can shoot off weaker parts of your build, such as weapons. Defender is more durable that Vector.

In raids your enemies are brainless simple AI aiming only your cabin, and there with a tower build where your weapons are safe, most of them will never hit your weapons, and you can take Vectors which are weaker. Also in raids your enemies are more numerous and faster, so the ability to shoot 360 degrees around is highly valuable. At low PS and easy it doesn't matter but at higher PS and mediums and hard raids, you generally should disarm the raiders first, then kill. Vector does that a lot more faster.

 

You can craft Growl from Lunatic workbench, you can buy it from market, or you can get it from loot crate.

A lot of players have started playing this game so long time ago, that the starter and early missions were different. But nowaday some of the beginner missions will give you a non-tradable crate, so the only thing you can do with it, is to open it.  And when you open it, you will get a non-tradable blue item. Generally you should sell most of your crates. But instead, you should by few "Found in the wasteland" crates and open them, because they contain engineer flags, and those are great only in beginning.

Growl is great for raids, and it's pretty decent for lightweight low PS PvP builds too.. You can do perfectly most raids with it, using blue weapons like Vectors. Of course as beginner you don't instantly have access to the about 250 coins required, plus it takes little bit time to unlock hard raids.(as per PC prices, which I believe you are playing)

 

You get your 200 fuel storage filled every day. If you don't use it, you will not get more. You can play as many raids as you have time for, but you will need fuel.

 

Step 1.

Play easy raids only to complete your "first steps" missions requiring them.

Step 2.

Then as you level up to level 10, start playing only medium raids for plastic.

Step 3.

Do not play easy raids, neither medium raids for copper. Pay attention to steps 1-2 and the word "only" in them.

 

Once you can participate hard raids, start doing mainly them. Initially choose hard copper raids because the biggest reward for them is the 500 badges. It's likely you won't be able to comple the weekly misions for both hard electronics and copper for first few weeks. You won't see the hard raid missions until you unlock them, but you can see the hard raid markers on map and what they require. The missions are to win 10 hard raids for copper and electronics each, and reward is 500 badges.

If you play fairly active and daily, you can complete the weekly missions for hard raids and plastic for mediums. The badges reward make them worth more than same amount of time used on PvP.

 

Generally speaking try to avoid selling your resources. It's more profitable to craft using them, and sell the item you crafted. But to get initial coins you will need to sell few resources.

 

Initially you can very fast unlock all 3 factions once you level engineer to 10. Here are the 3 factions and their rare workbench items listed in order of highest profit.("crafting margin")

https://crossoutdb.com/crafting#faction=lunatics,nomads,scavanger.rarity=rare.order=9desc.

 

It's a bit complicated system so it's fair to say most items are not worth crafting, as they are cheaper to buy from market, than to craft. If you look a that list, the buzzsaw will be profitable to craft only until the current event stops which is few days, after which it's price will fall, as a weapon it's rather useless. It has a high price now only because it's a component for one of the event items that can't be crafted once the event is over.

The website linked is third party. It's great tool for PC crafting once you learn how to use it, but it contains few errors as it's just mainly maintained by one person. Most of the time any items on the engineer workbench, are not worth crafting. If you check engineer workbench crafting profits, there are two items listed but they are no longer craftable.

I used to run Tacklers or Defenders in raids but I switched back to four Vectors since it just works so much better. Having the ability to drive in one direction and shoot another is a must in certain raids (including Chase) A Growl-based Vector build will get you through any raid in this game, including the Hard ones. So I suggest you work your way slowly (=in the course of next couple of months) towards the following setup:

 

  • Growl
  • 4x Vectors
  • One radiator (Charged is ofc best but others will do too)
  • Hazardous Generator
  • Racing wheels (one pair st, one pair non-st)
  • either one pair of Shiv-st or APC-st
  • Hot Red engine (Hardcore or no engine will do initially if the build can support it)

 

I have multiple legendary weapons and the above setup is my endgame raid setup! :DD

 

I'm also an advocate of using fuel tanks. Small and big fuel tanks stack so you could farm 15 fuel per match if you desire so. I feel the small tank is too fragile so I just run the big one. If you win a match and survive with the tank intact you've basically doubled your profits. Initially you probably want to sell any extra fuel you don't need to finish a season but eventually you hopefully won't be so strapped of cash and you start storing it for later use. I have 6K fuel in storage which I sell some of whenever fuel prices jump up to 8 coins or I can be sure I can quickly finish a season with the extra fuel if I need to.

 

Seasons: Do the hardest one you can do first. The gains are exponentially higher for more difficult tasks so you'd rather make sure you finish those. If you don't finish one of the easier ones it'll be less of a bummer. Right now you can only do the easy ones but move up immediately when you are capable of doing so. My coin income increased in orders of magnitude once I was capable of doing Hard raids. It was only after that when working my way towards Legendaries became a realistic goal.

 

Most likely it's more profitable to use the badges for Plastic and sell those and use the coins to buy scrap than it is to trade the badges directly to scrap (I haven't done the math though since I need the plastic or elec anyway myself).

 

It can be a bit of a risky move to invest in hovers right now in order to get a good 5K build since the devs have said they will tweaking the hovers pretty soon to reduce their effectiveness at that PS.

Hey OP I recently went through the new to intermediate player grind and picked up a couple of things.

The fuel barrels help, you can put the small and big one one for a total of 15 fuel, hide them well, best spot I have found is try leave a space in the frame itself so you can hide them under you cabin. you only get fuel if you survive and win but at early levels having fuel to sell helps as you start with no gold. Sell fuel keep the white items you are earning as you will need them to craft, if you do ever want to grind some white items to sell, the Docker, the lupara shotgun and the Avia booster sell for the best prices on the market generally.

I would say look through all the factions craftables and decide which one appeals most to you, then when the time comes choose one of the first 3 and stay with them till level 10. The way the factions work is the last 3 factions require level 10 with their previous faction to use, e.g firstarters requires level 10 with lunatics, dawns children needs 10 with nomads etc. So look at them and plan a path.

Spend your daily fuel on raids, and try complete your daily rewards each day to get extra scrap, I would say dont just sell your scrap right away as you use it more than any other resource for crafting, I made the mistake of selling scrap too early and needing it a bit later to craft then having to buy some. 

Also I would advise you sell any crates you earn, maybe open your first one to see what you get, but you cant sell items you get from crates or use them in crafting, so if you get something from a crate you dont like you are stuck with it, rather sell crates as they go for decent money.

Also I would say stay at a lower power score for as long as you can as if you try to just up your power score you will start finding games with people who have high tier weapons and unless they are on your own team it isnt very fun. Only up your power score if you have good items you want to use or if you need a certain power score to play certain missions, i.e wires require a power score over 4k in order to join.

In terms of making money, fuel works well in the beginning, just hoard fuel for now as the prices have dropped a lot over the event and isnt worth selling atm, sell fuel when its around 6ish gold. later one wires are very profitable and only really are used for purple weapons which you wont need to worry about untill much later. But you need to have a power score of 4k to get wires so for now fuel is your bread and butter. If you end up getting over 1k in scrap you can consider selling some just monitor the price to see if its worth it. Sometimes its better to hold onto resources and wait for their prices to rise before you sell it all off.

Also any flags you get will help a lot to level you up quickly, and decore items also give % xp buff which adds up. So I recommend opening the decor crate that you will earn at some point, but sell miners crates and such.

Any more questions you have over your climbing experience feel free to ask away, the community seems pretty helpful in general from my experience

I also advise trying each weapon class to just get a feel for them so you can find what suites your style best, so try the avenger, the lupara, the machine guns, etc and then decide which faction has the best options for the weapons and playstyle you prefer and stick with them till atleast level 10 so you can get their next tier faction if you ever want to. Also factions arent permanent you can change every 24 hours but i recommend sticking with one until 10 like I previously stated. Unless you really regret choosing a particular faction in which case try another, its generally worth it to stick it out as ideally you want to get all factions to lvl 10 for the end game kind of stuff, that way you can access all the craftables your heart desires.

So new player here. Started yesterday, played a couple of hours. I am rank 7 with the Eng. and have a ride with 2,100+ power score, so still a baby. However, I am having a lot of fun and I am usually getting MVP or finishing in the top 3.

So... what to do to progress fast?

Economy
2 or 3 more game and I will be be able to build the extended fuel barrel (that give you 10 fuel per game)
Any other things I should do to get "easy" gold?
BTW, love the fact that there is not two type of currency in the game and a player market (old EvE player here, so feeling right at home. Just wish there was better reporting available) 

Weapons
At my level it's a machine gun feast with some canons showing up.
I bough the combi WW cabine from the market and run a built with 4 machine guns (love the accuracy and super fast rotation). Should I stick to an all MG build or try a canon/MG mix?

What the hell are skills?
Could not find a good guide on them.
Anyway to select which skill is getting developed? 

Build
Any good build to work on in the 2,200 / 3,000 PS range? 

Any other advice that can help progress fast?

Cheers,

Personally I wouldn't build a fuel tank. If you really want it, buy it.
Fuel is usefull and grants a bit extra cash, but personally I think the price you pay is not worth it, I did it when I just started (not long ago) but looking back it hardly gave me any cash and I died more often (explosion or simply because it raises your power level while not helping your build, sometimes even slowing you down because of weight).

Sell your resources and buy stuff (well most stuff is better to buy at low level then craft).
Always buy low and sell high, it takes a bit longer, but can really make a difference.
If you want to check prices...https://crossoutdb.com/

Not sure which skills you talk about, only skills I know that are not your own, are those of your co-driver (button between your chat and the small version of your vehicle while in the garage).
To level those, simple put it in your cabin and start earning reputation (this games version of experience). Whenever you can upgrade it, it will show a yellow dot in the button and when in the co-driver screen it will show a plus. Don't do the upgrades that cost resources in the beginning, they are not worth the price. The first 4 are free and should be upgraded if possible.

Mixing weapons in this game is usually not the way to go.
If you want to go MG, go full MG, if you want to go cannon go full cannon.
Higher level a bit more diversity will be available, when there are weapons that enhance the damage of other weapons and things like harpoons that reel in players.
MG/Mini/Shotgun/Auto-Cannon will improve from using coolers and radiators. Radiators make them overheat slower and coolers will cool them down faster after reaching maximum heat.
Cannon/Rocket type weapons usually need ammo boxes to be able to fire more often and last the game.
This is also main reason why mixing isn't usefull, you would also both enhancement tools to make your weapons work the way they need to.

In this game which weapons / builds you should use depend more on the playstyle you prefer, there is no good or bad.
Try a few different weapons from exhibition (in testdrive) and see what you like before you start buying them.
With test drive you can also fire at your own vehicle and see if you can find weak spots and protect them.

Doing PvP matches for scrap will be you main source of income, sell the items and scrap for the time being.
The Period symbol in the upper right of your screen shows you the quests you can do, do them if possible, they should be worth it.
If you can do your weekly challenges, but don't buy just anything with the rewards. Plastic/Electronics/Pathfinders Chest are usually best value (I always buy the Pathfinders Chest and open it because I like getting a surprise epic :P).

When you can do normal raids and have already done your weekly that requires fuel (don't do the Invasion for the weekly though, just once for your starter quests), use your remaining fuel for Normal Raid that grant plastic and try to find the raid you perform best in. (usually a good idea to avoid doing raids with scavengers, they fail more often, and don't buy repair kits they often cost more than the raid is worth)

 

Well thats enough rambling for now, so good luck and have fun grinding.

Or just strap on a couple of vectors on low ps craft whit fuel barrels then ask someone to carry u in raids and probably in the other daily challenges. Thats how we do it whit a fr since he too low level for most stuff ingame.

If you mean "FAST" as getting above 10000 power score in couple of days, then only way is to pay a lot of money (200+ eur). It's so called MMO and it's designed in a way that new players would not reach the endgame build in couple of days or even weeks.

If you like the game, just play it. Even if you don't have much time to play, try making 1-2 hours a day to complete daily missions and raids. Also the daily experience boost is best way to level up with factions.
For new players i suggest using fuel barrel + fuel tank, you get 15 fuel per win, but note that you must survive and your barrels must survive too (so good design is a must)

I also recommend not listening to people who keep saying it's p2w, because it's really not. Maybe pay 2 progress, but that's what i already said. 
Best way to get easy wins, is to make your vehicle as powerful as possible for your power score, for example don't stack parts that drag up your power score, but don't really give you any advantage (like some players put on lot of tracks / wheels for no reason and it drags up their PS, but doesn't really help them in battle as they have like 2 judge cannons ..etc).
Also once you get high enough power score to enter hard raids, i recommend finding a friend with high PS build to help you easily complete hard raids so you can earn electronics and complete the weekly challenges (hard raid challenges are best).

and if you need help with building, watch my videos :)
