#Honorandduty from @StrangeGamesStd
If you have a PSVR then download this beta and try it for yourself, don't let the simple graphics put you off, this game is awesome but it can take a few games to get aqainted with.
So a bit of background, in the first beta I found my favourite gun, the M1 Garand, it had Iron sights and was single fire, but it killed in 1 hit, in most other fps games I hate iron sights and go for an acog 4x scope to take out targets at a distance but still usable mid range.
In the first beta there were no scopes so with a bit of practice I became quite proficient with the iron sights on the M1 Garand, see below.
Scopes have been added to certain weapons in this beta including the M1 garand and unless I'm missing something you can't remove the scope and use iron sights, no problem, I prefer scopes and they should make those long shots even easier, I was wrong, looking down the scope in vr was very difficult and hitting a target without the scope even worse.
I later found out I was aiming wrong, if I moved the scope closer the image changed to a full screen scoped view, much better, it turned the M1 Garand into a Sniper Rifle, alas I still preferred the old sights.
Time to find a new favourite a gun, with a bit of testing I found the Stg 44, it had Iron sights similar to the M1 Garand, took more bullets to kill but was full auto, this made panic fire at close range easier, favourite found.
I also had the chance to try out their battle royale mode again, after a few failed attempts I got into my groove.
I'm still not completely sure how it all works, does the scoreboard distinguish between outcasts or not, can you easily see how many players are left in the ring?
If you are killed its not game over, you become an outcast and respawn outside the ring (storm), the announcer says if you get 2 kills you can re enter the ring, some people have said you have to kill 2 people who are in the ring from outside or enter the ring and take them out, however if outcasts go in the ring they take damage so this is difficult unless you find people on the border.
Ive certainly killed 2 outcasts outside the ring in a life and not been allowed back in the ring, but with a bit of perseverance I have taken out 4 outcasts outside the ring without dying,this caused me to parachute back into the ring.
So what are the criteria for outcasts to re enter the ring? Was it a bug that it took 4 outcast kills instead of 2, or is it 2 in the ring and 4 out? I've contacted strange games for clarification and will update with more information soon.
Confirmation from StrangeGamesStd
"2 from inside the ring or 4 from outside. We may tweak this as the beta progresses."
Final thoughts, it's a really good open beta and I'm looking forward to the full release, just waiting for information on the launch price.
See you on the battlefield.
