    Hello,

    today for the first time I changed global difficulty in NY to hard. Checkpoints were automatically at level 2. So I increased one to level 3. But it seemed way more difficult than a lvl 3 checkpoint on normal and I died. Is this to be expected?
    Also, farming for blueprints solo is way too slow. After hundreds hours of playing I have only 140/323 blueprints.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    (...) So I increased one to level 3. But it seemed way more difficult than a lvl 3 checkpoint on normal and I died. Is this to be expected?


    I usually either have my open world set to challenging difficulty and level up the CPs to level 4 or have the global difficulty set to heroic. And I couldn't say that I've ever noticed a lvl 4 @ challenging difficulty CP being more or less difficult than a lvl 4 @ heroic difficulty CP.

    But what can make a difference in perceived and actual difficulty are

    • generally and for all difficulties – the different factions. Sometimes I really get my a** handed by some heroic Outcasts, but I usually never struggle against Hyenas. So that might be a thing.
    • generally and for all difficulties – the different CPs. Some control points are harder to take, some are harder to defend. Depending on where enemies spawn or if they can mount a gun or have good opportunities to place turrets etc.
    • events and troops from the open world interfering while you're busy with taking a CP. When trying to take over a CP at level 4 in a hard open world, only the enemies from that CP will be heroic enemies. All convoys or patrols arriving while your fighting or all enemies aggro'd from adjacent activities will only be hard enemies. But when having set the global difficulty to heroic, all additional troops will be heroic as well, thus actually making things harder...


    Also, farming for blueprints solo is way too slow. After hundreds hours of playing I have only 140/323 blueprints.


    Don't be disheartened by that number. It may seem like a lot, but once you start taking challenging CPs on a regular basis, you'll be done with it faster than you my think.

    And if you still want to progress faster, be sure to keep an eye on the projects, since they always also reward you with a blueprint.
