Still playing... I agree with your list above, and I am enjoying the Underground.....

Run the dailies, and in the Underground run the missions on Hard or Challenge modes.

Mix and match your gear sets to get the stats and abilities you want, and re-roll the stats where needed.

With my style of play, I run with a four piece Nomad, and a two piece (pack and holster) Alphabridge.

I carry a G-36 Assault rifle, Pakhan LMG, and Tenebrae as a sniper rifle. Anywhere space is tight, I have the G36 and LMG equipped. In the Underground I swap the heal for Pulse. When in the open world I swap the LMG for the sniper rifle.

A heal, tactical link, and seeker mine work for me.....

Keep in mind, when the Survival patch comes out there will be more changes to gear and stats...

I'm still on the fence with Underground. Are there gear sets or weapons that are exclusive to Underground or is it the same gear you see everywhere else? I've gotten my character to 229 by just running daily HVTs and farming roaming boss groups.

As far as gear goes I'm still not 100% committed to any one setup but right now I'm having the most success with an AR/SMG build with mixed Sentry and Striker. Used to run AR/DMR but I think AR/SMG works better for me.

I like the low RPM weapons for just about everything. They're a little slower but I can hit targets accurately enough at longer ranges. I might consider switching to higher RPM bullet hoses if I go indoors.

4pc Sentry, 2pc Striker
Tactical Mk16 or SCAR L (stats are identical) for AR
Aug A3P for SMG
Double barrel shotgun for side arm

Seeker Mine (gas or cluster)
First Aid overdose
Recovery Link

The skills are pretty interchangeable though so I change those depending on what my team has.

Well 1.5 is sure treating people nice.

Meatlocker has a 256 High End FAMAS for sale

20% armor damage
Destructive
Unforgiving
Uncomplicated

Got a Remington 700 Carbon from Underground too. Definitely one of the best Marksman Rifles now.

Jumped back in since 1.4 dropped. Was digging it, then 1.5 dropped and its super buggy for me. I was starting to like it again... just got BF1 though so I'll try this again down the line.

What kind of bugs / platform? I haven't noticed anything other than camera getting stuck once in a while.

Never understood the love for the Pakhan until I saw a 1.4 video on it. I don't remember it being that good lol. Did it get a buff?

I'm not really big on LMGs but if it's closer to an AR, than say the m60.., then I may give it a try.

Reload speed and rate-of-fire are good, so is accuracy. I like it......

Yo anyone still playing?

I just started playing again and have been having a blast.
Survival is a ton of fun to play and you get a TON of rewards for extracting. Within a couple of hours, about 3 survival games, I managed to get enough gear to start competing in the end-game.

It's still a hard game and has a ton of content with patch 1.7.1.

I play on PC, mostly Solo, but have had luck with random teams.

I've been seeing used copies of The Division at work for a very reasonable price. Is it worth starting now? I have a few online friends that play casually, but schedules don't always line up. Is there a lot of content for solo players? Any dlc that's necessary in your opinion(s)?

For reference, my play preference is mostly pve, often solo, and i'm exclusively PS4.
