Player Ammo Drops

17 replies 333 views Edited Dec 7, 2013
I've just started using a class that uses the Revolver as it's only weapon, with the AR as a purchasable. It's working out nicely so far, wih one aggravating problem. I can't get ammo for my Revolver. I start the game with a Revolver/SAR, so apparently for the rest of the game any kill I get with anything other than my Revolver will only give me ammo for my SAR...which I don't have. It's getting really aggravating getting ammo I can't use for a gun that's not even part of my class. Has anyone else had this problem?

Known problem, been mentioned since about week 1, when I was switching a BR to a Revolver only loadout.

 

Been mentioned to devs.  Is on fix list.

Use it as a support class from the very get go and you shouldn't have that problem. I run the very same setup when I play support and I always have ammo, even on the AR riffle.

@scootgar: So that's ND speak for "deal with it", right?

@Arzharkhel: Well, I use revolver, SAR, FAT 3, and Crafter 3 for a couple of spawns, then switch to revolver and AR with...I don't even remember what boosters. It'd just be nice to get ammo for guns I actually have. I'm not sure why it defaults to anything else.

What setup do use when you switch to the AR? If you run only revolver, FAT 2, Crafter 3, reviver 1, you shouldn't hace problems keeping your ammo up. I average 5k parts easily with that loadout without using any part boosters.

It's the best way that I can think of to go around the actual problem that ND hasn't and probably won't fix.

Is this a consistent thing or does it just happen every now and then? I rarely switch loadouts if ever, but the few handful of times I have, it hasn't affected me, one time I accidentally chose my bow/shorty loadout, then died 2 minutes in and switched to a burst/revolver and started getting burst/revolver ammo just fine.

 

If it's a problem, sure fix it, I just want to know if it happens 100% of the time, or only every now and then

It's kindof a random grab bag of boosters. Since I only have one gun I figured Brawler 1 and Explosive Expert 2 were solid choices. I picked Collector 2 to help keep things rolling once I switched over and started getting kills with the AR. Not an amazing class but it works out pretty well. Still trying to adjust to leaning more on bombs and melee when I have to, but it's fun to use, other than not getting ammo for my one actual weapon.

@sanddude: It's definitely a consistent thing. Kills with anything but my revolver will give me SAR ammo. I even opened a supply box at one point and got like 7 SAR ammo and no revolver

by consistent I mean does it happen every time you switch your loadout. I mean I personally only ever ever switched my loadout to one with different guns like 4 times total and it worked fine for me, so I don't know.

Every time I switch to a class with no large firearm it happens. Apparently everything but sidearm kills give ammo for your large firearm. If you had one but don't anymore it just keeps giving ammo for it.

Also, not as big of a problem, but I have a loadout with revolver, BR, and El Diablo. I'll end up using El Diablo for most kills and then only ever geting BR ammo, to the point where I have full BR with half a dozen drops on the map.

to me this makes things more fun adds to the desperation level of the game... scraping for ammo... instead of every enemy conveniently giving you ammo for your current gone
