For some more backstory. I have Vision of Confluence at 365 damage. It is a beast. We are fairly certain we can do the normal VoG and Crota with our 3 man fireteam but it's those hard mode raids that we will need the full 6. We play on PS4 and myself and 1 of my friends have 365 Gjallahorn's. We mainly just want Fate Bringer, Black Hammer and Vex Mythoclast. I'm just torn on if we should work on the Raids or work on the 35 Skolas PoE as we still haven't beaten the 35 yet. We have gotten so close twice but some random bs has happened and ruined it for us lol.

Okay, so I have a level 34 Hunter but I have only ever finished the Vault of Glass once on normal and have never finished Crota. The main reason for this is I never have had a full fireteam. I have 2 friends that I play with and each of them have a level 34 Warlock and 34 Titan respectively. We have pretty much all the best guns and armor that aren't raid gear. Is it even worth it for us to try and get 3 more people to complete these raids? I would like to see Crota's end before The Taken King comes out but are all the loot drops obsolete at this point? Or especially with the new raid coming soon, would it even be worth our time and effort? I wouldn't mind getting fatebringer and some other raid guns but I just don't know.

@whitegreyblack: yes you can shoot your way through scenarios but if you go to arrest someone and mess it up, the animations from arresting someone to pulling out your weapon to shoot a guy seems to take a little to long and since you die so quickly, you die before you can retaliate. Most of my deaths during the campaign were because of this I felt like

@catsakimbo: you get battlepacks that unlock random gun camo's and emblems and stuff. No guns or anything. There is no coop. Just single player and online competitive multiplayer.

@schlorgan: it's just about as long as Battlefield 4's campaign and it feels like a Battlefield campaign is supposed to feel. Nothing crazy but as with any Battlefield game, the single player isn't the main focus.

@gaspower: I don't know. The more I play the multiplayer, the more I feel like it's missing something and I think more vehicles is that something. I was never the biggest vehicle guy in previous Battlefield games but I definitely appreciated the option. This just starts to feel like a Call of Duty style game where the emphasis is on infantry combat which isn't what I come to a Battlefield game for. It feels like a Battlefield game for sure, but I feel like they did take a step backwards with the lack of offensive vehicle options.

@fredchuckdave: I completed the majority of the single player without setting off alarms and getting into huge firefights. I was able to stealthily take out large camps of enemies which felt satisfying but it did start to get repetitive since there is only like 1 or 2 ways of stealthily taking out enemies.

@white: I agree with everything you said. I felt the same way. I can't explain it any better than you did.

@jesus_phish: the single player is somewhat boring only because they really want you to use stealth vs going all out balls to the walls. That said, I feel like that first mission was definitely one of the weaker missions so I guess it does pick up a little bit. Nothing crazy though.

@i_stay_puft: sadly no.

@joshwent: I can confirm that you are a cop.

@hassun: the campaign felt fine. I think the emphasis on stealth was a interesting new way to play a battlefield game. The story was pretty boiler plate and very predictable. It was about as good as other battlefield campaigns. Just an extra bonus as the focus on battlefield is the multiplayer

@nathanxplosion: the maps are definitely smaller. The lack of jets coupled with the fact that vehicles are much less important than before has definitely led to smaller maps but that isn't a bad thing necessarily. instead there are more skyscrapers and other interior areas with multiple floors and rooms. It's like they built up instead of out.

@beachthunder: there is a lot of clipping of enemies. I had more than 1 occasion of them floating through a closed door and I had 1 guy buried halfway through the floor so only his torso and head were exposed to hit. Other than that, it never froze on me and the frame rate never dropped which was nice

@vextroid: some of the levels are open enough that they allow for some experimentation but I definitely felt like there was only a couple of ways to "correctly" do it without getting spotted on more than 1 occasion.
