I just tried Mercenaries today, playing the first 3 maps; Urban Chaos, Steel Beast, and Mining the Depth with Leon, Chris, Jake, and Ada. I'm still suck so bad, so far I only managed to get 72k score on SB with Chris and Jake. -_- But I'm sure I'll get better eventually.

I'm still playing on Solo of course, cuz I don't wanna ruin people's game because of my crappy skill. I'll start to join other people's game when I get better.. at least until I can get A rank. So far the best I got is C rank, and sometimes even D. -_-

Anyway, on topic, the spitters, dogs, shrieker (that scream), sniper J'avo, rocket launcher J'avo, jumping zombies, and bloodshots.. they are the number one reason I lose combos. So far I only managed to get 50-ish combos. Well, lack of enemy spawn is also one of the reason I lose combos.. but mostly because of these annoying enemies I mentioned.


Personally- I found playing on duo while a total noob to be a much better teacher then playing solo. You just have to make sure you have the right partner who understands you are still learning. You can add me if you like


Hm.. yeah, I think you're right. By playing duo with a better player, I can learn from him/her on how to get high score. Ok cool, thx for the offer. I'll add you :)

I expected this thread to be all "cause my rando partner sucks so bad never me." I'm really proud of you right now, gamefaqs!

My answers:

1: Mr. Fantastic J'avo

2: Rocket launcher J'avo

3: Burning ammo on a whopper, needing to reload, and not getting one of the 3 zombies around him instead.

4: Cant find enemies.

5: COVERED IN BEES.

A little advice, quickshot the dogs as not only does the shot always connect but it's also a 1-hit kill

Well I know that, I've been doing that since I started Urban Chaos the first time. But sometimes they jump on me from the back, or when I was about to chain-kill a zombie. So they're still annoying.

Magnum Cops.
Zombies leaping on my back just as i'm about to kill another to save the combo.
Whoppers.
Bloodshots confusing me occasionally with multiple leaps in succession so that i panic and miss the counter prompt.
Zombie dogs.

Dogs shouldn't honestly be much of a problem because they always growl before jumping at you. So you'll always know they're nearby and can simply turn and quick shot them without any difficulty. Same with shriekers, you can hear him gurgling and trying to suck up air so you should be able to pop him before he screams at you.

Pretty much every enemy in the game has a visual or audible indicator to let you know they're there so you can deal with them. So if you get surprised by them, it's a good chance it's because you weren't really paying attention or you have your sound off for whatever reason.

And you shouldn't have a combo loss due to lack of enemies on Urban or Mining so long as you're not simply shotgun'ing everything you see. If you space enemies out and melee them all or counter a lot, enemies will constantly keep flowing in and you really shouldn't have to worry about it.

If you're playing duo and constantly running back and forth all over the entire map, then obviously you're stretching enemies out all over the map too and gonna screw up your ability to keep enemies flowing in properly. Stick to an one area, let your partner stick to another, and have at it. If your end dries up, head over to your partner and stick together on opposite sides of that area to filter all enemies to that one area and deal with what comes to you.

The main reason for combo loss is simply bad luck. Such as JUST finishing a melee on an enemy and getting grabbed or hit before you can even move again followed by getting ran over by the napad while being grabbed, or getting knocked to the floor by a stray magnum and then getting hit 5 times in a row from the floor before you can even get up.

Stuff like that is the only real problem in Mercs. It's kinda random and not a whole lot you can do about it sometimes.
