I think the 1// is your current rank/level.  Mine has gone upto 4 but i've no idea what it is based on.

 

While I'm at it, does anyone know how to get the machete in multiplayer?  I haven't seen it available for unlock or anything but a low level player was using one earlier to decimate my entire team.

Machette? - ok gotta look into it

 

Yeah, I guess the 1// (now 3//) is just your level. Took me forever to get to 2, but really fast to 3.....guess just cause I improved.

 

saw a few 6// and a 7//

Strange thing is there is no explanation whatsoever to what increases your level.  At first I thought it went up for each week survived but that clearly isn't the case.  Leaderboards seem to go off supplys and parts so it could be that i suppose.

The machete is a purshasable weapon, I think. I'm not sure I've checked in the game itself, but I had seen it in those leaked MP videos.

 

About the leaderborads... I wish it had informations about revives Smiley Sad

 

And does anyone know if the matchmaking tries to match parties against parties?

 

I'm starting to like the metagame. I love that you can choose your mission. And I think this metagame also works as a way to console players when they loose a game, because they might still perform all the metagame stuff even if they loose games... so they don't feel like they're just loosing.

Is anyone else having trouble getting headshots to register? 

 

Stupidly I picked headshot for one of the missions, somehow not taking into account that I can only remember getting around 4 of them in over 5 hours play.  5 minutes ago however I thought I had the perfect opportunity,  a guy facing the opposide direction and crouched still (no helmet).  So line up my sight perfectly and take a shot with my revolver and he survives! I quickly take another which again lands perfectly and which point he runs off.  The second i give chase however,  BAM! on shotted by his team mate.

 

Don't think I'll pick that mission again. Smiley Mad

Anyone find it idiotic that we're hunt and pecking for how/what to do?  Anyone find it moronic that there isn't a manual for this (does the one on the disk say anything??)

 

Anyone find it ridiculous that all these questions aren't geing answered by a SONY or Forum rep?

I looted one from a random tool box.

That's where I got one, and I, too, swept through the enemy like a reaper.  Massive weapon, and great fun.

 

I have to reiterate that the lack of documentation on how to play the MP is appalling.

 

A simple 5 minute tutorial showing what can be done would be immense.  Understandably, a lot of what you can do is like it is in the SP, but there's so much depth to what seems simple, a little walkthrough would be a huge help.

Also, I have upgrades/new stuff, and can't FIND it in the menus because the exclamation mark doesn't drill down...
