Extinction - Ammo Question

#1SatanicatPosted 11/10/2013 3:42:54 PM
In extinction, just unlocked Armor Piercing ammo.
Is that better than the Explosive? Debating which to use. I see that explosive has splash damage, but I assume Armor Piercing would really do more damage if you aim better.

Each ammo is useful.

Stun ammo stops enemies for about 1 sec randomly
Fire ammo is damage over time
Explosive is splash damage
Armor piercing reaaaalllly hurts rhinos w/lmg or marksman

It really varies for situations
Remember Kids, STDs is NOT like Pokemon....You're NOT supposed to catch them all.

Explosive ammo is the best all purpose ammo to use. Armor Piercing doesn't kill Rhinos all too much faster, and at a point, you want to use your terrain to make Rhinos jump up and jump down edges since they are slow at doing so to make time for kill. Otherwise, an ability can help take it down fast and you get most of your cash back and bonus exp when it dies.

Thanks everyone. Sticking with Explosive Ammo. Now if only people could learn to follow the optional missions for the extra skill points. So depressing.

Is extinction good for grinding?
