Played a bit of MP during the free weekend since it was double xp then decided we’d practice our Warzone gameplay some more over the last couple of nights. Got a 2nd place finish in duos which is our best yet. Also had some brilliant games in trios with my sisters boyfriend. I managed to win a pistol vs pistol gunfight straight after dropping in which is highly unusual, I’m winning about 50% of gulag matches now instead of it being a guaranteed death, and I have a load out I’m happy with now with a sniper rifle with 3.25 zoom scope to avoid the optic glint. Got a couple of brilliant shots with the sniper rifle so hopefully I can keep practicing that because it feels like a massive advantage in Warzone.

We also picked up a contraband contract last night and were able to complete that for big money and a new sniper blueprint and after three of our four had been killed I survived three minutes on a most wanted contract and the whole team respawned which was awesome.

Interesting - I saw the tag in the quests line and kept meaning to look at what it was but never did

Page explaining where things are and the quest line if you don't mind some spoilers

I did also see that there is a way to get inside the bunker on the trench map

I didn’t know anything about Ghosts message, how do you find out about the intel in the first place?

As in, I can see in that euro gamer link that you go and find the location in the message Ghost sent you, but where do you see the message that Ghost sent you?

The quests tab has the image in there - not sure if there was more than that (possibly in the cutscene ?)

Well I've tried it multiple times even abandoning everything to make sure I'm the very first person to get to the desk and it does not show for me - apparently its a little glitchy :-)

On both Multiplayer and Warzone there is a quests page you can get to in the main menu that shows

Your current active quest (get 5 headshots / get 10 kills with a sniper / etc) which you can switch around if you get stuck - it starts with one active but i'm pretty sure you need to manually move to the next set when you've completed a 'tab' - this did also used to have the operator missions in them which made it really hard to manage but in Season 3 they moved that to the operators page and its automatically set when you switch to a different operator

The daily quests - these are also things like 'get 5 headshots' but only valid for a day - they have separate lists for Multiplayer and Warzone and have at least gone back to normalish ones after the early season 3 quests like "Get 5 headshots with a sniper rifle with 3 attachments but not a scope while standing on one hand and wearing a blue jacket" (and thats not much of an exaggeration)

The weekly quests - these are slightly larger numbers but still 'get X' headshots or win X games of Search & Destroy and have separate lists for Multiplayer and Warzone - i think they reset around Tuesday ?

These all reward you with XP / blueprints / tags / etc - the usual cosmetics

When Season 4 launched there was a new tab added which just says 'intel' and if you select it you get the image of inside the TV station as your first clue.

FYI there is also *another* set of challenges that unlock for each level you get above level 55 - you get to that through the barracks / your records page which last for the whole season - there are 100 challenges (the last unlocks at level 155) and for every 10 you complete you get a token / symbol

I’ve done it.

It’s “very” glitchy - sometimes you’ll click on the intel and nothing will happen. Best I could do to make it work was to click and stand perfectly still until Ghost appears in the top right corner then it worked consistently. It also seems you can’t do them sequentially in one drop so you’ll need to drop seven times to finish it.

It’s not worth it.

Finally got our first BR win in quads with my brother in law with his friend, so pleased! We’ve been chasing it all week and had a couple of 2nd place finishes which felt stressful and panic filled. This time it felt good, we had great positioning and great comms and although my adrenaline was pumping and my palms were sweating, it felt a lot more comfortable.

Then my brother in law and his friend had to go offline so we played a quick game of duos while we waited for someone else and ended up winning it as well! Again, it felt comfortable, our movement and positioning felt good and in both games we felt like we were pulling our weight instead of dragging the team down which is how we felt when we first started playing.

How do you get the PS4 to record game footage?

It records by default - if you hit the share button on the controller it will let you save off your last block

You can also link up your youtube or twice account and it will stream to them (you need to remember to turn it on by pressing the share button) and those will keep it (twitch for a short period of time but youtube forever)

Yeah i noticed that - two reasons i think

1) New sniper rifle challenge is to get 3 no/quick scope kills in 15 matches
2) The new sniper rifle fires explosive rounds so a hit anywhere basically kills

So you've got people trying to grind the sniper challenge and you've got the people who have already grinded it out using their new toy

To be fair the new sniper with explosive rounds is great fun.

I'm still grinding it - i had some problems because i cant use a sniper very well in general but my best way was to use a marksman rifle (i've the first one leveled pretty high as i used it to unlock the crossbow) and playing on shoot the ship (mainly shipment) just spam both the aim and shoot buttons when firing which gets me my quickscope kills - I'm about 1/2 way

I tried with the regular snipers and sucked at it. I ended up using my trusty M2 carbine.
Fun fact: you don't have to use a scope to get quick scope kills. You can use any sight, even iron sights on the marksman rifles.

Just FYI: the explosive ammo on the new sniper is bugged, while you are using it you won't gain weapon xp.
