    Sniper Elite 5 Review

    By shane , in Articles, , 0 comments, 306 views
    Teaser Paragraph:

    Sniper Elite 5 is a breath of fresh air in the shooter world. This 3rd person shooter continues its WWII with large maps for campaign, multiplayer and a new invasion mode.

    I have spent the last couple of days playing some campaign and multiplayer matches, but what has really had me locked in is the new invasion mode. Basically when you are playing your campaign and you have not disabled the ability to be invaded, an opponent will drop into your campaign with the single goal of killing you and your teammate if you are playing coop. Both you and the invader will have enhanced skills added revolving around finding each other and it is quite balanced.
     
      Even during my stream you will find that as the invader you are not just dropping in to get an easy kill. You have to work for it for sure! You will start somewhere in the map, it may be right into the action or you might be halfway across the map. Either way you are going to have to do a little searching to find your target to take them out. I found that the best way to find your target is follow the trail of bodies. Once disadvantage I had was not having completed the campaign, I did not know the path progression on some of the maps, meaning the route the campaign would take the player. If you have completed the campaign, you will have an advantage because you will be able to anticipate the direction your target will be coming from.
    Now with that being said there are a few features to note, you cannot just pick a spot and camp. If you sit still too long you will get a warning that you are camping and if you do not move, your location will be reviled to your opponent. Through out the maps you will find phones that you can pick up and get your opponent's last location. Do not depend on this as a pinpoint, but more as a guide. It is not a fluid tracker, it is a point on the map with a timer showing the last time seen at that location. If your opponent is moving through the map quickly, you will find yourself chasing them with the phones which have a 4 minute cooldown.
    You can also use your fellow soldiers (NPCs) to help notify you when they have found the player. Each NPC has a status of not alerted, searching and alerted. Pay attention to the direction they are running or facing, this can indicate the direction to go to find your target. I will say when the alarm has been set off, unless there is a fire fight going on, you only benefit on finding the general area the opponent is in.
    Once you have finally tracked down your target, the same rules apply for all snipers, your scope will give you away! Close combat will get you a chance at melee or a good pistol shot to the head. If your opponents are playing coop, you have to eliminate both, but the second player only has a couple of minutes to find you before they loose the round.
    Finally do not take injuring your target as an easy follow up kill, you and your opponent are able to self heal and return to battle. If you are quick enough you can however run up on your target and get a satisfying melee as final action on your target.
    Now lets talk a bit about multiplayer, there are a few different modes to choose from including free for all, team match, squad match and no cross. To be honest I spent all of my time playing no cross in multiplayer to get a feel for the game at a slower pace. It truly a no cross map, there is no way to get to the other side physically if you try. While I can be a pretty good sniper, you have to be extremely strategic when you are looking for opponents. Using your scope will give up your location with a bright reflection that your opponent can see from space. So I spent most of the time using my binoculars to find my targets. Even better if you are marking your opponents, other shooters can kill them getting you the assist.
    My BIGGEST complaint for multiplayer is the lack of maps. In team match, squad match and free for all, you have 4 maps to choose from, but in no cross there are only 2 maps... come on Rebellion we need more maps, after a few hours, the no cross matches become very stale!
    With that out of the way, I am very happy to see a kind of lobby system for multiplayer. You cannot edit the title of the room it is based on your gamer id, but you can create private or public matches and you can even provide invite codes to get everyone in the right match together for competitive play.
    The customization for game rules is almost endless with the exception of the lack of turning off respawn. it has already been suggested to the dev team to add that as an option. But there is a wide variety of presets as well as the ability to completely customize your match.
    We are defiantly going to start working on some tournaments for this game very soon and look forward to seeing what we can do with this game, stay tuned!

    Sponsor Spotlight - Rogue Energy

    By shane , in Articles, , 1 comment, 8,880 views
    When looking for partners for Urgent Fury, we try to find unique opportunities. The gaming industry is flooded with Energy Drinks and we have even talked with some of them. At some point I stumbled on Rogue Energy and thought, ohh look another energy drink. Well boy was I wrong! I started doing a little research and found that while yes they are a gaming drink that provides energy and focus, it replaced all of the unhealthy junk out there and replaced it with good stuff.
    So what did I do first? I ordered a Starter Kit to check it out. Now it came with a bunch of packets and I not being one to try this alone, I decided my day job co-workers would be perfect test subjects .
    So we all took a different flavor and "gave it a shake", ha I made a Funny. The fellas at work were surprised that the flavor was exactly what they picked. No off taste to it or aftertaste which was a big deal.
    I went for the Strawberry Kiwi as it seemed to be the flavor that I would like out of the Starter pack and enjoyed the heck out of it. The taste was great, no powdery feel to the drink like you get with some of the cheap water flavor packs out there and no aftertaste. Most of you know that I basically bleed Dr. Pepper, so for me to enjoy a drink that is not DP says a lot.
    Now my next order will actually be the Cherry Limeaid. That is one of the few drinks I can really enjoy when I am not slamming down the DP. 
    So with that being said we joined the Partner program to pass on some saving to you guys and gals out there in our community. When you go to the Rogue Energy Website, you can use the coupon code "urgentfury" and save 10% off of your order. To be transparent we do get a little kick back from their sales when you do use the coupon, which does help keep the community going. So we save you money and we get a reward in return, that's a Win - Win for everyone.
    If you are one of those that lives off energy drinks, head over to Rogue Energy and give it a try, go to https://urgentfury.link/rogue today!

    Urgent Fury welcomes Patrick "Commander Fury" Gross back as Media Director and Co-Owner.

    By shane , in Announcement, , 3 comments, 5,908 views
    Patrick's first tenure with the popular tournament community began in 2006, and lasted until 2012, when he left to create Battle Chatter Online with his colleague and friend Bill Lavoy (now of Prima Games).
    In September of 2013, he joined the development team at SOF Studios where he served as UI & Audio Designer for the "H-Hour: World's Elite" proof of concept demo. Upon completion of the demo, he was approached by Urgent Fury with an offer to return and decided it was time for a homecoming.
    Once again, he will oversee all branches of media including audio, visual, & social media. And says he has a desire to expand Urgent Fury's current model. "I think that it's no secret that Urgent Fury has struggled with its identity over the last few years…mainly because the industry has changed & evolved so rapidly. But I'm confident that we know what we need to do to adapt, and what we need to do to be sure that Urgent Fury is in step with the industry".
    He also says he plans on resuming production of the community favorite podcast Urgent Frequency. "UFreq was such a huge part of what I did here at Urgent Fury, and I have every intention of making sure that's still the case moving forward. In fact, the plan is to expand the amount of media content overall".
    Urgent Fury CIO Shane Bell says he's excited about Patrick's return. "He was the very first staff member at Urgent Fury, Patrick is Urgent Fury. He understands how the community was built from the ground up and what direction we need to be heading. As our newest Director and Co-Owner, he will have full creative control with where we are taking “UF�. Not only with regard to our tournament events, but Urgent Fury as a whole. We cannot begin to express our excitement with what the future holds".
