    General Tips

    • Don't get attached to a particular gear item of weapon until you get to World Tier 5 (or Level 40 for WoNY) - it'll become obsolete quickly.
    • Check the tutorials tab if you accidentally skipped over a tutorial in the heat of battle
    • Hazard protection doesn't help against explosives - you need Explosive Resistance for that
    • You can replay missions by selecting them on the map and selecting the difficulty. You cannot replay side missions
    • You can increase the difficulty of a control point by completing an activity that is linked to it by a thin red line. Beating L3 or L4 control points will give you crafting blueprints
    • Most missions have a hidden backpack trophy you can find
    • You can fast travel to friendly supply convoys and NPC assault leaders, as well as group members
    • You can toggle between invaded, regular or manhunt versions of missions by holding a button while selecting the mission
    • Complete the DZ recon missions for additional XP. You only have to find the entrance to the DZ and upload map data - no need to go in.
    • Commendations are in-game achievements. You need to claim commendations on the commendation tab to get the arm patch


    Combat Tips

    • When facing groups of enemies, look out for medics or enemies with a double-chevron icon. These enemies will buff or revive their friends, so taking them out first is a good idea
    • Most enemies have a weak spot. Hitting this will do more damage. You can tell you hit it when there's a bold yellow cross. On most enemies look for a red item.
    • For the Cleaner chungas, shoot the big tank on their back. Once you've done enough damage, they will take their mask off, making them more vulnerable to headshot damage.
    • For the Riker shield tanks, shoot the two tanks on their back. This will force them to drop their shield, making them much easier to finish off.
    • You can use "Call for backup" if you're having a hard time in a given fight. This will summon another player to help you out. Just remember to endorse them when prompted.


    Seasons

    Seasons are included for all owners of the Warlords of New York expansion. Seasons are a series of activities including a manhunt, leagues and global events spread over 12 weeks. Players earn rewards from the top (free) reward track as their season level increases. Currently (July 2021), previous seasons are being re-run.

    Completing the manhunt for a season unlocks a new mission variant. However, all mission variants are also available as a reward on free reward track.

    Season Pass

    The optional Season Pass unlocks a "premium reward" track and an additional project. The pass for Season One was included free with the Warlords of New York expansion. The pass for Season Two onward costs 1000 premium credits. You can preview the included rewards on this track in-game - highlighted in yellow:



    Feel free to add any other tips you have for new players, but avoid any spoilers for those who haven't finished Warlords of New York.

  • 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.

    Reset Control Points

    You can reset Control Points that you already control. From your map, select "Global Settings" to bring this screen up:



    The "Reset Control Points" option will switch all Control Points to enemy control, allowing you to fight for them again. This will only reset the control points on the current map - i.e. NY or DC, not both (as of July 2021). You will need to "Confirm Settings" to apply the reset.

    Note that the control point supply box can only be looted once per day.

    The area in East Mall between Sinkhole and Solar Farm control points is particularly good for looting materials. The sewers in West Potomac just west of "The Shop" safe house are also a good source, and also have key cabinets for faction keys.

    @Ubi-Lucipus any chance you can fix the image link in the above post? akismet complains it's spam when I try to remove the additional "img" tag.

    Sinkhole itself has more steel (brown toolbags) in one place than I've seen anywhere else in the game.

    If you're looking for crafting materials, doing runs of faction lockboxes is particularly helpful because they will not infrequently drop 100 of either (or sometimes even both) of their faction materials. For example, starting with the Outcasts lockbox near the western end of tunnel with the Ivy Tunnel CP, you can head south through the sewer system all the way to a contaminated building and get seven keys, open four lockboxes, and pick up a fair amount of crafting materials from normal boxes/bags and items to deconstruct as well.

    I've got a few specific routes I could write up, but it's a big enough post that I'm not feeling up to battling this new forum software and editor to do it at the moment.
