I’m not sure if I’m just bad at the game, am doing something wrong or it’s designed this way but ever since I got past the first region I’ve been dying A LOT.
Like, for example. I had a level 2 rival tank and I thought I’d go kill him. Once I started attacking him I got swarmed by 3 more tanks, like 6 hunters and a few runners (I think I saw a harvester too) I focused fire on the rival.
500 7.62 bullets later, I don’t even know how many .270 soft point rounds, 3 grenades, 6 grenade rounds, 4 flairs, 2 boom box’s, 3 Adrenaline shots, he still wasn’t dead. I finally threw my last flair, put 4 propane tanks under him and blew them up and he finally died. I looted him and besides a little ammo and some steel I didn’t really get anything. I feel like I wasted so many resources killing him for no reason.
I thought maybe he’d drop a new weapon attachment or a new weapon or something useful. I’ve found rivals to be incredibly difficult for no real reward. (Keep in mind I’m playing on Adventure difficulty, I have been the past couple of hours because I keep getting swarmed by so many robots that just won’t seem to die.)
I know most of the robots have weak points but they’re now either heavily armored or don’t seem to do much. I’m starting to mostly just get frustrated and annoyed when I play. What can I do better?
