Default APB Reloaded

I brought this game up months ago, to no success. But started playing it again to relive some MMO stress, and realized this would be 100x better with some TOGers. Linking some video clips of a two man, some times 3 man group that were dinking around bounty hunting and missioning in game.

Its free to play, using a lease system for guns, you pay in game cash for 10 day leases on guns. You can buy special guns or guns you could unlock through grinding as well for free, but have to use the 10 day lease for them. Note early one it looks like the guns are pay to win, but once you get familiar you can kill pretty much anyone with stock guns, and quickly unlock customization ones that are identical to stock minus mods that upgrade something at the cost of another stat, IE longer range, for a targeting reticle that expands more from rapid fire, or rapid fire, in exchange for smaller clips.

I downloaded and tried it a bit, but I just couldn't get properly into it.
Just not my thing, I think. I looked through some videos first where it looked quite shiny, but it didn't transfer well into my screen.

I was excited for it b4 I had a comp to run it. Tried it when it went f2p. Was super laggy, kept booting me out, and wasn't very fun. I saw a lot of exploits and it did seem like p2win. Firefall is more my speed.

Yeah it had issues with quad cores, and if your punkbuster is off it will ruin the whole game for you. The pay to win part disappears after a few weeks of play, I was killing players with tommy guns the other day using there valentines free assault rifle, just have to know the pros and cons of the guns range, or aiming style. For instance tommys need to aim so if you get a spray and pray gun you odds go up in close end fights, and if you use an assault rifle or basicly any rifle you can stay out of its optimal killing range.
