Unwritten Rules to daily op

Unwritten Rules to daily op

sasuke1980

Wait for everyone to thumbs up at the beginning. This shows that everyone is done opening lunch boxes.


Sizyfoz

Its a good idea. Many times I've rushed to get onto the Daily OPs team and need a few seconds to change a perk and pop a buff or two. If I'm not the team leader I'll wait for that guy to kick it off.


FlavoredCancer

Very much this. I always get a kick out of the fourth who shows up late just running at top speed because they think we already started. If your getting the "Come hither" emote, odds are we waiting for you.


J4zzyMal1wandigo

It also gives people a moment to get into their power armor if they need to.


Mouth_Shart

Make sure to emote Thumbs Up at the end or this one guy will get super upset.


Mrdiamond3x6

If it's under 8 min is a heart ok?


hennofspades

I heart at the end of every event. Feels nicer than a thumbs up!


RandomUser12903847

I use a salute, usually the BoS one. I think just any acknowledgement of a job well done is enough. The heart is nice to see, though :)


IlitterateAuthor

I always give a raider salute


vivecsCHIMussy

I also try to pregame with at least one round of Mothman dance.


sidbyrd

I will ❤️ if the team was extra good, or if I got there late or messed up and I feel like the rest of the team carried more than I did, or if someone popped a bunch of lunchboxes—anything above and beyond. Otherwise, 👍 is my regular response for a normal op with nothing remarkable.


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

I always heart unless someone is being a jerk. then I thumbs up. thumbs down and angry face are never something I use. they seem immature to me. lol ohh unless they're using mininukes. i'll thumbs down a mini nuke barrage


MUNCHINonBABI3Z

I loaded into a daily op one time and popped a lunch box and got a thumbs down.. I was baffled. Even if the guy had 4x well rested already, why thumbs down me for boosting my own exp? Lol


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

lol have you ever seen the meme, why the baby is crying? because I wouldn't let him eat toilet cleaner, etc. it's like that. lmao


Shrek_The_Ogre_420

Baby: WAAAH WAAAAH WA WAAA WAGHG!* *Eating that tidepod was gonna get me thousands of Reddit karma and tens of thousands of YouTube likes you dick!


Swerve666

On a controller I have accidently used the wrong emote sometimes the controllers get finicky.


8VolT

imo f76 is way more finicky on Kb+m. I play all fps games Kb+m but f76 is just way easier with a pad.


Shrek_The_Ogre_420

#######UseAControllerLikeAChad


me-topia

It's fine. I like sword-waving if I'm feeling especially hyped. Heart is for when I join a Daily Ops group when they are almost done. I use it to say thanks for the freebie.


thelonechemmerchant

Heart if it’s under 8 minutes, thumbs up for anything else


Mouth_Shart

Hearts are for Lunchboxes.


Sizyfoz

I don't get upset if you don't thumbs up, but I get happy if you do. For me its important to show the other team members that I appreciate their effort even if I carried them through the OP. Low levels especially that struggle without the right gear but still give it their best.


SiliconeGiant

Also give an emote at the end, even if it took 15 damn minutes to do the thing. So you didn't get your epic reward oh boo hoo, you'll probably have 4 by the end of the season and does comraderie mean nothing to people anymore? You just went through a battle, throw a salute like a man ^(^or ^a ^lady)


DonaldDopeRDO

don't do the help emote when downed unless someone is literally next to you. this is about time and everyone want this done fast, no one will run half the map to revive you. just respawn.


BullFrogz13

Exactly, have the decency to die with dignity. Failed to get elder a few days ago on decryption for the first time in a long time because two teammates sat waiting to be revived multiple times for over minute.


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

i don't know about anyone else but sometimes it seems like the help emote is an auto thing. about half the time when I go down even if I am quite alone that damnedhelp thing goes off. dunno if I button mash or what.. but I am guessing I"m not the only one who ends up with it going off unintentionally


DonaldDopeRDO

yeah, sometimes it's automatic, that's true. but the point is not to wait til the timer goes to 0 :)


Rune_Fox

Sometimes I'll wait till the revive expires if I'm sitting in one of the uplink zones. You still count towards the progress bar.


The_zimmers

>Sometimes I'll wait till the revive expires if I'm sitting in one of the uplink zones. You still count towards the progress bar This! I've seen folks immediately hit the respawn instead of letting their presence count toward the uplink timer.


Sizyfoz

Its automatic when you go down, but it stops as soon as you respawn. So that is okey. The thing I dislike tho is when people intentionally throw up that emote without actually needing help. When someone goes down at an event I will drop everything and dive right in to revive - usually putting myself in danger. Its a bit dumb but that's how I roll. It sucks a little to make the trip and see that they are getting slightly tickled by two Wendigos. Yeah, they look scary, but so do the 10 more that ganged up on me on the way over...


Rune_Fox

For me, I'm jumping around a lot and both are on space so if I get downed right before I jump then I emote.


o00Hope00o

I tell my team mates to just die when they’re waving for help. They should know better than expect me to come help them😹


Bomber_Haskell

I do the help emote for like 2 seconds before dying to give my team an idea of where I was if searching for enemies has been difficult. I figure one of them can come finish off whatever killed me. My hope is they realize why.


thundersnow528

I, errrr, I mean THEY probably don't want to die and come back with their jetpack visible, which happens at respawn..... ;)


SiliconeGiant

I hate when it does the emote automatically when you get injured


The_zimmers

>don't do the help emote when downed unless someone is literally next to you. Sadly, I do this without thinking because when I first got a piece of "life saving" armor I thought you had to do that to activate it...it turns out it was just coincidence that it didn't proc. Silly me. I know better now, over 2 years on, but it's become such a muscle memory thing to do I can't stop myself! I'm absolutely good with it being ignored.


Sizyfoz

My basic rule is: if you go down and I can help you without hurting the mission, I will do my very best. If I go down, then that's on me, and I'll take the respawn like a man.


Zestyclose-Car-5171

But it's also equally annoying when other person is in same room and they will choose respawn.


SomeoneSimple

In uplink its not just annoying, when you're downed you still count towards the timer as long as you're in the uplink area.


sidbyrd

Did not know that. A low level player with bad survivability could use that to solo cheese an uplink op—just go to the uplink, die, and wait for the timer to complete before respawning. The only hard part would be killing the final boss. I may have to play with that concept, just because I enjoy how ridiculous it is.


SomeoneSimple

I don't think that is viable, after a (few?) deaths you seem to get instakilled without getting downed.


sidbyrd

You’d theoretically only have to die twice, once at each uplink. Although I’m not sure what happens when you don’t respawn for over a minute. Does it let you stay downed forever? Typically insta-death is from taking further damage when downed, usually explosions or ongoing poison (etc) effects. Or just weird server lag from previous shots. But I’ve never died more than a few times in a daily op, so maybe the rules there are special, 🤷.


AtomBombBaby42042

I can never tell so I do it for like 5 seconds then drop


SaltyRusnPotato

I can never tell so I just mash the respawn (unless I'm directly on the Uplink area, or we are at the decryption boss). If I'm playing decryption, by the time my teammates are safe enough to revive me, they've killed all the nearby enemies. If I respawn it'll put me closer to the enemies across the map than if they revived me, and I ran toward the enemies. Also I'm slowing down teammates if they revive me.


AtomBombBaby42042

I just do it my way because quite a few times they've been able to help me but I miss it. Just never sit and wait for someone to revive. It won't happen


SaltyRusnPotato

Imo just because they can help you doesn't mean it's worth it. Stimpak + 2-3 seconds for no gain whatsoever (unless on decryption boss or the downed person is directly on the Uplink capture area). The 5 second respawn timer is actually a 2-3 second penalty for the team compared to reviving someone. Explanation: it takes 2-3 seconds for one player to revive another, that's just the animation, not including running over to them. Then it takes about a second for the downed player to get up as per animation. So that's 3-4 seconds of time loss for the team. It's only 2-3 seconds more for you to just instantly respawn, and you'll get benefits of not having an animation of getting up, instant full health, temporary invincibility and Sprint that doesn't drain AP, and you are likely to be closer to the objective/enemies.


AtomBombBaby42042

Why are you seemingly butt hurt over this? Jesus calm down.


SaltyRusnPotato

What? I'm just stating the math behind my reason. Is explaining my reasoning being "butt hurt"?   Edit: I'm a person who likes to give quantitative reasoning, because quantities are usually interpreted the same for everyone (doing the math in terms of money or time). Qualitative can change significantly between person to person and as such I think it's ineffective in describing ones stance.


AtomBombBaby42042

You're actually nit picking my play style, I have likely never played with you. Did I ever say I actually expect anyone to revive me? No I didn't you're just getting gamer rage at me over something that bothers you


Swerve666

Agreed just respawn unless they are already right next to you, most of the time it puts you closer to the objective anyway.


shadowlarvitar

Exactly, if you're down within the download radius then yeah stay like that, I do that too on annoying Mutation days. But if it's the one where you're running and gunning, then it's just being an asshole if you don't die with some honor rather than selfishly demand a revive


fallouthirteen

>My first unwritten rule is to not shoot an explosive enemy next to the person who is disabling the radio intercept- they will below die and give you the frowny face Eh, that's debatable. I mean you should be able to survive a couple explosions and the MOST annoying thing when using a radio is having some melee enemy hitting you and resetting the progress.


SparkyCorp

People in PA probably will but if there's a Bloodied non-PA player on the team, they'll probably die to a point blank blast.


TiggsStoneheart

That's the bloodied players fault. Those bloodied players should know their role and let the tanks tank. If an explosion could kill them a melee enemy would be just as scary anyway.


BaconRisen

As a bloody guy, this is the way. Just kill the enemy. If it kills us, ehn. Shit happens. If a bloody player is constantly getting downed, they either need to rethink their setup or bite the bullet and pop a rad-away so they don't drop in the middle of an Op.


[deleted]

[удалено]


TiggsStoneheart

I think you responded to the wrong person... That quote is not from me.


DismalRebirth

There is absolutely NO reason to move through the Daily Ops as a solid unit. Spread out unless of course it is an uplink Daily Op, in which staying close to that signal repeater as a group means those portions of the daily go by quick. But during decryption, just spread out. Put a fair amount of work in. Kill everything and keep it moving.


SiliconeGiant

Going in pairs can be helpful because if one of you goes down, at least that enemy gets taken out, if you respawn you have to look for them again. And you get a 2nd point of view. But depends, if everyone's OP then yeah better to spread and go as fast as possible.


DodgyDutchman

1 - If someone else uses a lunchbox, it's common curtesy to follow up by using one yourself. If you don't have any then at least use the heart emote. 2 - If you join a team and see people entering the daily op, don't make them wait longer than is absolutely nescessary. If you need to stock up or drop loot then be quick about it. If you are still finishing an event then you joined the wrong team in the first place 3 - Always finish the op. Don't drop out or leave simply because another event starts that you want to participate in. Most of the time that new event is still going by the time you finish.


LogansFortune

Is it actually common courtesy to use lunchboxes when your teammate opens one? I have just never seen it in practice before.


barskykd

It works somehow. I often open lunchbox to bait others into opening theirs ) Works every time )


SUSH1CAKE

at least for me its reminding me I actually have them. I see a lunchbox and go "oh yea, i prolly have like 9 of those i should use one as well"


ducktruck27

Honestly I never remember until someone else opens one anyway so thanks for the reminder! I've not done ops yet so I always have plenty.


fallouthirteen

The exp buff stacks 4 times (25% per use). So there is merit in doing so.


sidbyrd

I don’t feel obliged to. Lunchboxes are limited, and maybe I have other plans for mine. But someone else popping one certainly increases the chances that I will too. If high-XP-earning is compatible with my immediate plans, I just got a free head start and might as well complete the bonus to 100%. Plus it is a nice way of saying thanks to the original popper. But if it were mandatory, it would just be a way for others to lunchbox-farm off of bystanders. That should maybe work! But not guaranteed. A heart emoji is also sufficient thanks.


Sizyfoz

Do what feels right for you. That I open a lunchbox doesn't mean you *have* to do it too. But it nice to get a heart emote. Its good to remember that the guy standing next to me perhaps already have 4 lunchboxes active and don't want to pop one just because I did.


freemcgee33

Wait, do lunchboxes stack? I've always played solo and have never used more than one at a time since I don't buy the micro-transactions. Also, I've only ever done the daily ops once (I'm mostly play to just explore the world), and I was expecting some kinda lobby, or people to just fast travel in like in other events. I ended up just doing it on my own. Do you have to join a team to get others in the daily op, or how does that work?


AdonisBatheus

Lunchboxes stack up to 4 for a total of 100% bonus XP. They will not go over 4, but you can still get the extra mini-buffs that come with them.


RandomUser12903847

You get a random buff every time you use one, so technically yes. If I'm in a really large group for an event (like sbq or earle) I tend to use at least 4 lunchboxes, depending on how many I have on me. I always save 2 for DO though.


LCTC

Each lunchbox gives +25% xp for an hour up to 100% xp with 4 and they have a wide radius of effect; you can do this to get double xp at any time. Since a group holds 4 people it's common to get together and everyone uses 1 giving everyone +100% xp.


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

i'll use the heart emote but just because someone else uses a lunch box doesn't mean i'm obligated to do so as well. it's not a good rate of return to do it in ops. if someone else wants to do it great.. but I'm never going to. I always heart though. lol


Halloweenkristy

Yeah, all this. It's very rude to join Daily Ops team before you're ready. Get your ammo and stuff together beforehand and then join a team.


Prince_Julius

4 - In Decryption, when you need to supply the decode, don't kill enemies. Start killing enemies again after someone has done the decoding.


baldchow

I left an op today for scorched, and I knew I was a dick in that moment.


VRTravis

I usually pop 4 at the daily ops, I'm a fallout 1st and that's about all I spend my money on. It's for me, but everyone benefits! That and the sbq.


JohnBrine

If You start an Ops on a casual team no one is obligated to help you out.


SiliconeGiant

Thank you, I leave if someone starts an op because 1 why didn't you just start an ops team and 2, make room for others who might want to run it. I have very occasionally been in a casual team where everyone ends up running it but it's rare.


GenghisAres

Depending on the Op setup, some aren't hard to solo, and some people are just doing it for ammo and don't want to make a new team that may not get anybody to join. A lot of people run Herd Mentality and Stranger in numbers and just stay on a Casual team. I don't see why you would quit the team, it doesn't affect you in any way unless they are emoting for the rest of the team to join.


johnucc1

You forget those of us running empath, I'm wanting that sweet 25% damage reduction (after the +7% damage increase)


JoshBFS

On quiet servers I usually run daily ops while I’m on casual teams. I’d rather run it solo with guaranteed team bonuses and shared perks than have nobody show up for a daily ops team I started. That said, about 3/4 of the time somebody joins me, and I almost always join daily ops when casual teammates start them too.


sammygirly

I have a little rule that I gave myself that I have to join an ops if one of my team mates starts one. Nobody knows it's a rule I have ... but they benefit from my level 700+ full health expertise when they take the chance. Even if I've done 10 ops today. Don't tell anyone, k?


CrimeFightingScience

That's mighty cool of you.


giantpunda

Complete the objectives as quickly as possible. Even inexperienced or weak players/builds can be useful during an OP. Stand by the uplinks to speed things up and for decryption, if you're weak af and can't contribute to kills, at least stand by the radio things to deactivate them as soon as someone else kills off a code carrier. Lastly don't bother sticking around and call for help when you're downed. Just die quickly and get back into the game. I'll save a downed person if it happens rarely. If you're dying constantly, it's not ideal but it can be tolerable if you're not constantly emoting for help.


eldelshell

One more: if you're the leader of the Daily Ops team, change it after you're done to casual/events.


hawkeye137137

For armor piercing enemies; unless you have a full overeater's normal armor set or similar damage reduction, bring your power armor to not get 1 or 2 shotted. Armor piercing robots are especially deadly. For invisible enemies; berry mentats helps in seeing them since it highlights enemies, but being a VATS build still sucks. Come with a non-VATS build if possible.


Sgt_Buttscratch

I wear a stealth set, thorn armor. Never go down. I do however revive PA ... I'm also a VATS build


hawkeye137137

A stealth build may work but you need stealth perks, proper gear, a silenced weapon, etc. though. On the other hand any power armor works against armor piercing enemies since all have passive 42% damage reduction. Just have a full set (I personally use Excavator), none have to be legendary, and a couple of fusion cores and you are good to go. For VATS it may be a me problem since I normally play a VATS shotgunner. I can see invisible enemies being much easier with a rifle/commando build since they are much more reliable outside of VATS compared to a shotgun.


Sgt_Buttscratch

Yeah I run proper stealth build, one hit Instigating gauss rifle and a 2 shot gauss rifle back up. Easy easy


sidbyrd

For invisible enemies, I love me some flamer / plasma flamer. Who needs aim precision, just ignite the entire general area in front of you. Hit entire stacks of enemies with a single burst. Spin around a little, go nuts. Especially for my enclave plasma flamer, it’s a great way to farm expensive ammo too. It only takes a light touch to kill the enemies if you’re judicious, and they return way more ammo than they take to kill.


fallouthirteen

> For armor piercing enemies; unless you have a full overeater's normal armor set or similar damage reduction, bring your power armor to not get 1 or 2 shotted. Armor piercing robots are especially deadly. What? The armor piercing tears through power armor just as fast in my experience so I usually avoid using power armor during those. Why waste the cores for no benefit.


sidbyrd

Power armor has a large flat damage reduction percent. Armor piercing only applies to DR, not damage reduction percent.


Hrafhildr

If you have lunchboxes, using them will make your team like you from the start.


Crimson_Knight77

Daily Op XP is capped though, right? And the enemies barely give any XP. I do not see the point in using lunchboxes here instead of elsewhere, so I never bother.


Mastersword87

Lunch boxes also have damage multipliers, which help.


Crimson_Knight77

Aren't those effects random and specific to certain enemies? There's no guarantee the lunchboxes will give you a buff against the enemies you're facing.


Mastersword87

Yeah they are random, but if four players each open one, the likely of the right buffs procing is high. And regardless the buffs last at least 30 minutes. That's enough time to do some other stuff after the op.


Slosten

They last for an hour, and you might as well share the benefit if you're already planning on popping some anyway.


vonsolo28

5 minutes for dsily ops so sharing is caring . Pop them finish then grains exp


Crimson_Knight77

Yeah but I could also pop them at Scorched Earth or A Colossal Problem, where more than three other people can benefit.


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

yea me too. I'd rather use them at an event that has a lot of people so you're giving the buffs to the server instead of 3 other people


wellser06

You should be rocking Fireproof Perk and Dense chest for these explosive Ops anyway, if not you gonna die either way lol .. I care about slaughtering the enemy as fast as possible :P


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

fireproof no longer works in ops against explosions.


wellser06

Been working for me idk


wellser06

OK I just did an op, I still take DMG but nowhere near as much as without it, I killed two right in front of me using a two shot agl and I didn't die..


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

the damage equations have been changed. it protects against fire not explosions now.


wellser06

If that's the case they didn't change the tool tip on the card... It clearly states damage from explosions and flame attacks...


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

when things change they never update tool tips. no game dev does. lol


Siilverbolt

Thumbs up when u are good to start Pop a lunchbox if you got 1 Unless your on my way to the objective you will not get revived, takes too much time


DuckingDecoy

I've always wondered if there was some unwritten rule about 1 shotting enemies in daily ops. Obviously not for decryption where everyone is running around like mad just trying to kill stuff. But for uplink is it more acceptable to use a tagging weapon so everyone can loot every body? I usually run my gauss shotgun in ops to try to get through it as quickly as possible but I sometimes feel bad that I might be stopping others from being able to farm loads of ammo. I generally know when to not 1-shot stuff in other events but daily ops has always been a gray area for me... What's the consensus?


njorls

All that matters is finishing in elder time


BACARDI-from-NL

6 minutes is for me the goal. Under the 6? Great run! More than 6? Let's try again!


TheChrisD

>But for uplink is it more acceptable to use a tagging weapon so everyone can loot every body? You're already on a team, so everyone can already loot every body. Besides, it's just ammo and the occasional grenade or aid item, it's of little use. Just kill the enemies as quick as you can and stay in the uplink radius.


DuckingDecoy

That's interesting - I've run into bodies I can't loot in ops and assumed it was because I didn't get shots on them. I'd be lying if I said that I completely understand the rules about who can loot what and when... So not surprised that I missed this 😅 Either way it sounds like the takeaway is to kill everything at quickly as possible which I'm down for. Thanks for the replies!


sky-full-of-ice

I think you need to be somewhat near the body if your team mate kills it.


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

ops has poor xp. finish fast


GANUIN13

I always shoot to kill in ops. You have a point. I personally have never seen anyone get upset about tagging or not. They also give less XP and none are legendary. So it seems like less of an issue.


GenghisAres

Enemy xp is already lower on Ops, so tagging isn't as useful. Getting more and quicker kills is better as that gets more ammo bodies to loot and helps get to Elder.


Vault13ExPat

This is a nice thread. It helps. So far, I have avoided Daily Ops, because I don't want to upset more experienced players. That said, I am at 136 level, so maybe I am ready. I hope I can find someone willing to mentor me through a couple, before I start jumping into them myself.


ducktruck27

Same. I'm at the same level, tried an ops by myself and was like nope this isn't going to happen alone. But I also don't want to piss anyone off. Maybe a few more levels I'll try lol. This thread definitely helps!


--DonQuixote--

Unwritten Rule for Daily Ops?... Showing up naked wielding a nocturnal rolling pin is less helpful then you would think.


sky-full-of-ice

Damn it there goes my optimal build


Revolutionary_Bag304

Lol shoot stuff and don't start till everyone there are the only rules really


Sgt_Buttscratch

Get your act together before joining party, then teleport into mission. I don't want to have to wait 47 seconds!!!


BaconRisen

Damn right! Do your shit BEFORE you join the Ops teams. Join when you're ready to go.


MasonMSU

Unwritten rule #1- try your very best to stay within the objective circle. #2- never bump into the objective activator as this can pull them off and waste time. #3- there is no better direction to go between the two. #4- group leader goes for relay first, the rest of the group should be moving toward one of the objectives. If your were heading to B and A triggers first, it’s understandable but please try to hurry to get to circle. Of course these all pertain to the default Daily Ops, not interceptor. #5- *MOST IMPORTANT*and I can’t stress this enough. At staging area- Thumbs Up emote= Ready to Go! Please allow some time for teammates to load in and get their food/drug buffs going, try not to start while other teammates are still in menu. #6- Have Fun! Honorable mention tip- when the progress bar is at 90%, you can go ahead and move to the next objective. The bar will auto complete while you are on route.


Branded_Mango

The rules are as follows: 1. actually participate in the Op 2. stay at the uplink during Uplink 3. spread out during Decryption 4. don't run in front of people at the uplinks/radio jammers That's pretty much it. Oh, and if you don't follow Rule#1 then don't think you can hop into an Op like a leech; the second you hop into a half-completed Op, expect to get kicked immediately.


Zozzbomb

Number 2 still escapes folks I randomly jump into ops with.


SnooChipmunks5572

I've joined an Ops team and jumped in just as they were about finished and I always feel bad. I still try to do my best to help in the time remaining but I always try to initiate another Op right after finishing, even if Elder Rank was achieved. I try to let the team know I'm appreciative of the win they got me but I still want to show them I can earn it too. I'm rarely a one and done with Daily OPs anyway, I try to run em 3 or 4 times if the team stays together.


Branded_Mango

If you join an Op at the last second then that's okay; nothing indicates anything bad since tou cant track hiw ling the Op has been going for when outside it. It's the people who dont join and deliberately wait for 6-7 minutes that are annoying and leeches.


Kokoyok

Why on Earth were you downvoted? These are the basics.


Branded_Mango

Probably some leechers who are salty about being called out.

Fun_Jellyfish_4884

the come here emote is fine. everything else you said I absolutely agree with though


Nuganomic

My first daily op I was picking a lock in the burrows, team was not impressed lol


sky-full-of-ice

My first daily ops also in the burrows I was like look at all the junk here and started collecting it.


Wildlust

I remember once having 20 seconds on the clock to go disable the objective (for elder) after killing the boss and died on the way there. I was so salty. But I spawned pretty much in the room where the objective was and disabled it quicker than if I ran there, lol. So yeah, that's a good tip. Just die for quicker mobility. :P


Comprehensive-Ebb835

One person goto the radio / disable at a time - you don’t need to crowd around the button. It dead stops the process as soon as your teammate passes through your activation space and the button. JUST COVER THE BUTTON PUSHER!!!!


jimmymd77

These are more like pointers and kind of obvious, but: 1) Make an effort to learn the maps. It take a while but it's possible. 2) pay attention to the map indicators. There are indicators for the radios and the code carriers. I have seen the code carrier glitch out and not show, but the radios have always show up. 3) unemcumber yourself so you can sprint - it's timed, you know? 4) don't stop to loot the bodies until the end. Again, you're on the clock.


Bobby_Rocket

Kill all the things!!


SkeuomorphEphemeron

Except the ones that make you leave the radius of boosting the timers, of course. Or the ones that explode all over your teammates when they don’t expect it. Or … Well, look, just kill all the **right** things, none of the **wrong** ones!


DodgyDutchman

Actually if you kill enemies the timer also advances. So if you can kill enemies quickly and there is a group outside the radius, go for it.


giantpunda

Actually that can be counter-productive for some ops. Soaks up too much time and leave clouds of poison that people have to run through.


TheSnarkAtWinterfell

Funky Duds at max is your friend for Toxic enemies. I can stand in the clouds and I dont seem to take much damage at all


Darth_Xibalba

Yeah except for in uplink, then keep ur ass by the uplink


sky-full-of-ice

I just got told not to kill all the things before they tell us to eliminate the enemy groups and it really confused me


Bobby_Rocket

Meh, times a factor so I just kill all the things. Except since the last patch seems like I’m not wearing any armor at all so I spend most of my time on the respawn screen lol

Tbh it doesn't really matter unless you have a really weak team even then just shoot everything, 8 mins is quite a long time.


CuttlefishExpress

Don't join the daily op at lvl 10 unless everyone else is like level 400. You can't contribute at lvl 10.


fallouthirteen

Sure you can. If you stand by the radio thing it speeds it up. Honestly I'd rather have anyone in those just to make it go faster than be waiting forever to get a 4th (sometimes it just takes an eternity to get a full team).


ShadowEagle95

Yes. And let the level one get tags on uplink for xp


RandomUser12903847

I'm level 125 and I don't join unless at least one person is over level 300. Mainly because my builds all suck, I have like the worst armor ever and I barely contribute. I try my best, though.


daddysback1984

Generally the host or team leader is the one who needs to repair the signal jammer (for uplink) while the others rush to either A or B. It saves 20-40 seconds and every second counts when ur doing ops with noobs and randoms. If you see someone rushing towards an enemy at the end when you have to find the group of baddies DONT FOLLOW THEM. Go find someone else to kill. I can't tell you how many times this happens. Last important one is this. Unless ur right next to me I'm not picking you up. Not because I'm mean but because im being timed in the op. Bring stims better gear etc. Respawning is always faster than reviving.


BACARDI-from-NL

Host/leader must repair the radio? Never heard of that. 2 people runs to the radio and 2 runs to A or B. Why 2 people to the radio? Defending.


daddysback1984

1 person goes to the radio. Usually the guy who starts it everyone else goes to A or B whichever is closer.


BACARDI-from-NL

And then they get killed when repairing. We always send 2 people to there. Usually the 2 strongest players. We dont care who the host is.


daddysback1984

When i do em the host is like lvl 400 and has op gear but the point is you dont need everyone to repair a signal jammer.


BACARDI-from-NL

Even with op gear 1 person can be killed easely when an enemy rushes to him. If that happens you lose valuable time by respawning and stuff. That's why 1 person defending the repairman is a smart thing to do. Isnt that great, everybody plays DO differently.


daddysback1984

Power armor


CapeMike

What about if you're someone like me and have a *notoriously* bad sense of direction? I've been known to literally get lost WITH a map, and rushing tends to only make things worse for me...yeah, I know it's on a timer, but still....


daddysback1984

I mean either get better or expect to be kicked. The maps aren't too hard to learn.


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

get better or get kicked...what is your gt so I can be sure to never join an ops with you. if the ops is being completed there is no reason to get aggro.. no reason to kick because someone is disadvantaged in one way or another. only reason to kick is if someone doesn't join or help at all. if they're trying and you kick, you are hte problem.


daddysback1984

You're reading into my comment too much. The people I kick from ops refuse to participate. They're off killing random enemies while the team is at A/B. If they're getting sh1t on by enemies but STILL following the objective then that's fine I'm ok with that. I refuse to get anything less than elder rank. NOBODY does ops for fun except for Satan. Some of y'all to big to carry.


Fun_Jellyfish_4884

it's soloable to elder. if you aren't getting there in a party it's not just their fault. kicking makes you the problem unless they aren't helping in any way whatsoever.


daddysback1984

Right it's my fault for doing the objective and not dumbfuckmcgee264 who is off picking kalidepore


daddysback1984

Point is: pull your weight or go do it urself.


barskykd

Every daily ops can be finished on elder solo. So never blame teammates if you fail to finish it.


Gone_cognito

I've learned, don't start the event if there's already a bunch of people there before you.


RandomUser12903847

I didn't know the dying trick. That's helpful because I often get lost trying to catch up with my team when I spawn in for the first time.


Sorurus

If you have 2 options on where to go, take initiative and run towards one. Throw the “Come here” and emote as you run to the objective and immediately activate it


Grandrew_

Tagging is normally common courtesy in events, but in a Daily Op it couldn't mean less. You don't play a Daily Op to share XP, you play it to get dines as soon as possible. So if someone is Hogging kills it's fine. Especially on a Decryption day.


Traveler_1898

For decryption ops, don't follow your teammates in a pack. Especially for ops on larger maps, you need to split up to clear the op efficiently.


Jackalodeath

By no means a "rule," just something I feel is overlooked. Phantom Devices. Specifically for Decryption due to that pesky armor piercing, turn them on themselves and mop em up. It works best if you can manage to get *into* the crowd, it'll generate a stealth field for you, and make every hostile in the general area attack one another. Use at the beginning of a wave and you suddenly have 3-7 new, disposable, "teammates."


Pinkkifantti

And if you see someone speedrunning it for you, come to the fucking sites fast as you can.


Different_Owl_8056

If you join daily ops and the rest of the team thumbs up, and you're AFK for 5+ minutes, we aren't going to wait any longer. Also if you're not going to do daily ops, leave the daily ops team when you're done in case someone else wants to join.


moose184

Did they make explosive enemies do more damage or does the explosion just do more damage when it's armor piercing?


Alone-Counter-5756

Any emote is doing the job done to respect your teammates at the end.


Stuck_in_Arizona

If you start a OPs team, don't afk indefinitely after it fills up. If you are the team lead, don't wait for others to start for you.


FlyingNope

Thumbs up at the start to let everyone know you've loaded in and are ready to start. And wait till everyone is ready before you leave the little area you zone in at so you don't start the timer prematurely.


Rockyshark6

If you or anyone joins your Daily Ops team, use your wave emote to say you're active/waiting for teammates and then thumbs up if you're ready to go and don't join the mission until everyone thumbs up. Don't get angry if you join a team with a single lvl 40 and you're the only one in the ops.


Cakeski

Pop those lunchboxes if you got 'em. Thumbs up or charge emotes to say you're ready. Wait for people to suit up or load in. It's quicker to respawn than wait for your team mate to run across the map to get you unless they're close. Start moving from the group on Uplink when the bar reaches 100%, get to the next uplink or pop the kill objective. Stealth may or may not work in decryption to spawn more in. Always use your favourite gun, farm that ammo!


emmme62

My one rule is that you don't up to someone who is decrypting, I can't tell you how many times I've had it interrupted by someone running between myself and the radio


Lurkercrow

Ehh i disagree with the explosive one since I share fireproof for those dailies. My big thing is waiting for thumbs up to make sure everyone is ready to start. I join the op and like to down food/chems/open lunchboxes


Amphithritis

Let's not forget the puking emote for when you realize a public team member is just sitting still and waiting at the entrance after joining late into the op for free loot.


Drax99

And then you ruin it by writing them anyway. I mean, it goes without saying, but...


reconpj

Hearts are gay. I mean did you really just love what you did like to love your wife, husband, family, a pet? The yes emote is the only way to go if it's under 8.
