    I've played both Criminals and Enforcers and I honestly can say this game favors Criminals over Enforcers and you'll have a shitload more fun as a Criminal.

    You can get your logo on a bilboard? :raise: Also, why'd they trash DoF?
    You can make a spray and then tag specific view points.

    Maybe, but as an enforcer, you can use the witness thing on criminals that have that handcuff picture near their names and that gets you 5$ and some faction standing. And if you see criminals like that every 50 meters, you can get money and faction standing very easy.

    You get $137 for stealing a TV, or something.

    When I played criminal I'd go on store thieving sprees with an armored van, take like 4 tvs, 2 suitcases, and 20 small items, take them all to a contact, then repair the armored van and take it to a lockup. Shit ton of cash and loads of fun.

    I play enforcer though, because after a while the constant chases while I'm dicking around get annoying.

    Yeah, but stealing stuff takes effort and you get notoriety or whatever for it. With witnessing, you just gotta press one button every time you see a criminal.

    I still think criminal is more profitable, but it's also more dangerous.

    The MP5k isn't. I got my crosshairs on the guy, they stayed on the guy, but he killed me faster with his STAR 556. Even firing in bursts doesn't work.

    Here's a tip, me and my friend went enforcers, he kept the default weapon whilst I bought the sniper, and the idea is that I weaken the enemy and then he finishes them off, always works.

    The only problem I have with this game is when it ends up 2v3, I mean why does this happen, why not a 2v2 to keep the fairness?

    The MP5 is easily the best point blank weapon, period.

    I know, but if you are playing against someone using the STAR 556 at medium range, how the hell am I suppossed to get to point blank if the guy is dodging and backpedaling?

    Get a secondary that would be good for longer rage. Like the desert eagle or that big magnum.
    Like for example, I usually go around with that semi-auto sniper rifle as my primary and that mini-uzi look-a-like as my secondary. That way, I can be effective at both long and short range.

    Well, I cannot unlock any of those for some reason, I don't know how to unlock stuff either.

    As a crim, I'm pretty sure the handgun simkas is talking about (ACT 44) is Level 4 on G-Kings. For the magnum (Colby RSA) it's level 3 Blood Roses. I would suggest the Colby RSA, even though it's slower it is a lot more accurate than the ACT 44 and it's always a 3 shot kill.

    With the money they get, which is far less than other MMO's, they can hire more people/have a steady source of income, which will allow them to spend more money into improving APB.

    Yeah, but most of that money they could of had if they didn't do subscription, a lot of people would of payed if it wasn't pay to play.

    Enforcers lose prestige for crimes (running over criminals and property damage). So yea, that is a consequence.

    You know paying the subscription isnt the only way right ? You can sell APB dollars for RTW points which allow you to purchase game time,an since the social district has unlimited play you can create an sell designs for APB dollars, then buy RTW points thus enabling you to buy more time without ever having to pay the subscription fee.

    Did they say how much RTW points it would cost for a certain number of hours.

    Is it possible for me to keep my current beta account that I got into KTTC with while also pre-ordering on steam?

    I don't want to fuck around with character creation again.

    Found the Star is a brilliant weapon, when matched with someone using a long range weapon it's all about suprise, ambush and vantage points..
    Short range..the amount of people I've seen blast a clip at me with their machinegun and reload for me to pop out and split their melon with precise shots..

    I use the same tactic with the obeya and the secondary uzi is brilliant.. Obeya for long to midrange - midrange - short on the Uzi

    Grouping is definitely the way to go in this game, especially for Enf.. as Crim grouping isn't that essential as you can go around mugging people and ram raiding shops.
    You find the most action in groups! Groups doing missions for a pledged contact is even better.

    you can keep your account but there will be a character wipe, a week before the release, but if you pre-order now you get the 3 day early access an whatever you do in that time period stays during the release

    So NDA is down? I've got a few pictures. Nothing impressive, mind, but who cares? Also no gameplay pictures because the client locks my game to minimum settings, I'm sure you can find ones.

    Just got done playing the beta and used all my "game play time"

    It was a lot of fun, despite the missions being the same they really didn't get old because new people would try to hunt you down or kill you. Or you would do the hunting yourself. Played as an enforcer so i had fun with that, wanted to try playing a criminal but didn't have game play time. Customization is pretty awesome, though the unlocking stuff can get a big old but you got to work towards something. I was having fun till the time ran out and asked me to buy more. I was pissed off at that point, how can you expect someone to pay to play a beta? I dunno, i don't like the whole play time idea, but then you can just do monthly for what 10 bucks? Personally i wouldn't pay 50-60 bucks for this game, maybe 40 but that is pushing it.

    Like any game needs work obviously, wish it had a bit more variation like NPCS you can actually fight. Go in to instances - breach and clear buildings, retrieve evidence ect.
