I did that twice... never again

I did that twice... never again

LiteCavIsCoolestUnit

You end up going through new “paths”. Or at least I do. I prestige at the same time as my buddies and it makes it really fun


MayaWrection

My buddy and I always prestige but staggered. This helps when the other prestiges so we both can use same weapon to unlock variants and ammo types quicker. We really only need marksman Springfield with bleed rounds and we are good to go


Pliskkenn_D

Why is that your go to?


MayaWrection

Cheap, effective, deadly


Pliskkenn_D

I've never got the hang of the marksman scope sadly.


MayaWrection

Stay at range and make sure you have steady aim. Wait for the hunter to stop moving for easy headshots. Just play a bit slower and stalk your prey


limdi

Do you shoot each other to swap weapons? Just curious. Or do you use a kill to swap..


MayaWrection

What? No, we use the same family of weapons to double the xp gain for the person that just prestiged. So early on after prestige we you can get nagant and Springfield. Person that hasn’t prestiged will have silenced nagant and marksman. Silently shoot everything to rank up his nagant and killing players is really easy with a marksman Springfield. I think after like two player kills you unlock Springfield marksman and maybe even dum dum ammo. Maybe another two kills. Anyways, as long as the person that hasn’t prestiged is using weapons that they have access to, the other players kills with those weapons rank up for both people.


Everestax

wait so if you and your teammate has the same weapon, you both get the weapon exp if one kills someone/monsters?


MayaWrection

Yes!


Everestax

Well sheet. Wish I knew that 5 prestiges ago


limdi

Ohh you use silenced Springfield marksman to help him level Springfield for fast unlock, right? Thanks for the explanation, I was confused and thought you like to trade weapons somehow. :)


TheBaumfaeller

I am pretty sure you can't pick up your partners weapons


limdi

Says the same here: https://www.reddit.com/r/HuntShowdown/comments/d079dk/if_your_partner_dcs_you_should_be_able_to_take/ez77261/

I try to but I always end up rushing uppercut exp.


skeal88

I wish I had that kind of friendship


MachineGunDillmann

I have no problem with unlocking the variants again. I just hate how the book of weapons looks like I never leveled any of those weapons ever after I've prestiged. IMO it would be great, if all weapon variants would have an additional mark, if they have been completed before.


skeal88

and you don't get the bloodbonds again


QuartermasterReviews

I still think prestige once, pick the extra 10% xp perk then your done.


skeal88

I did it for that reason and didn't liked it, the second time I was drunk and hit the square button by mistake


Sarah-M-S

I would love to prestige again but I really don't want to go through the hassle of unlocking all the weapon variants and custom ammo types.


mrgrigsad

Or using poison items for 50 times to unlock tripmines


The6Courier

Does using the poison hand crossbow count…?


PricklyPricklyPear

Nope, that’s xbow xp


The6Courier

Ofc… fuck hive bombs are a lil op but hard to unlock. Especially when I keep prestieging lol


PricklyPricklyPear

You can get a lot from looting toolboxes at least.


TheDrunkenHetzer

I wanna use the meme bombs so bad but I've no idea how to unlock them again 😭


The6Courier

Use antidote shots and poison bombs literally every game and look for blue prints lol


TheDrunkenHetzer

Ahhh, I just got poison bomb! Time to mess some people up.


Anti-Anti-Paladin

This. I like having options. I don't fault anyone for prestiging, but my friends who keep telling me I need to do it are the same ones who bemoan the fact that they only have shitty gear available when we're outfitting our hunters lol I'm sure at some point I'll get bored enough to the point where I'll take on the challenge of having limited options, but until then: OPTIONS.


IamnotaMaggot

Yea the real fun isn't some grinding bullshit. It's killing enemies and ranking up mmr.


Lycanthoth

To you. It gets boring using the same meta weapons over and over, and prestiging gives a reason to use the old ones again (like the Springfield).


skeal88

weapon variants and custom ammo make the grinding tedious


[deleted]

[удалено]


TobyDaHuman

One more reason to prestige. Finally you have to fight the bank again and play with shitty weapons.


skeal88

nehhhh


skeal88

I have 640k so I am on the same boat lol


UniverseBear

Prestiging is such a pain now because of custom ammo. Unlocking variants was ok but custom ammo to? It's too much. I unlocked the lemat at rank 48, used it every single round including using the flare shell to get extra armored/hive xp. I didn't get the slugs unlocked until rank 78. It's almost time to prestige again. How are you supposed to anything with the higher rank unlocked guns when you can't hope to unlock all their stuff before prestige roles round again. It's annoying, not fun.


Lin_Un

Bro , take a break ,enjoy your custom ammo and possibilities of level 100, then hit that subscribe button err I meant that prestige button and back to poverty again. I fucking love prestiging !


UniverseBear

Nah, I took a break for like 6 months. I want that lvl 50 Winnie skin.


AeonsOfStrife

Weak.


skeal88

?


AeonsOfStrife

Not prestiging is weak, and cowardly. *Waits for downvotes*


skeal88

everyone is entitled to have an opinion


AeonsOfStrife

An enlightened perspective. Respect.


TobyDaHuman

Actually I am trying to go for specific themes each prestige run. This time its Crossbow. I thoght i would hate it, but actually it became one of my favourite weapons after a few rounds!


skeal88

People don't like it because most of the users go for explosive ammo but normal bolts and shotbolts are a deadly mixup, second one is basically a long range shotgun and you can wallbang


TobyDaHuman

I just unlocked those. Few seconds ago I did my first shotbolt loadout. Gonna be good!


redtracer

That's not a Martini-Henry Riposte


skeal88

neither a Nitro


Phat_Minor

It's a knife.


ForTheL1ght

I got murdered the other day in quickplay by someone with 32 prestiges. Wild shit


Happiness_inprogress

I just make the goal of unlocking a certain playstyle every prestige: sniper, shotgun, medium/medium, etc.


masterpain96143

I would prestige but then you have to unlock all the variants again and I don't want to do that. I wish we just kept the variants and lost the blood rank


CloakerJosh

What would be the point of that?


Lin_Un

What's the point in anything ?


masterpain96143

You'd lose the guns and variants but as you got more levels you get the basic guns and the variants


AFRIKKAN

I collect legendary skins off of dead hunters. I currently have 39 including some I wasn’t around for. Never gonna prestige again and loose them.


DrWhiteWolf

After each prestige I try to get used to other weapons and play styles. I get my cheeks clapped, but it's also incredibly fun to try out and learn to use the different weapons. It helps in firefights if you know the strength and weaknesses of not only your but also your enemy's weapons.
