Things are going much smoother since I restarted as Monolith. I guess the old saying is true, if you cant beat em join em. As I play through I find myself not fighting back against a flood of enemies as I did when Monolith was an enemy. Now the flood is mostly on my side though sometimes I get let out to dry and have to to fight for myself. But at least the enemies are not spawning in constantly and making the experience not as fun when its a never ending flow of enemies to fight off. In one battle I counted over 30 monolith killed, usually bases only have 10-15 enemies.
It would be nice to get a new rifle soon for my Monolith player, I found myself a nice auto pistol and its been doing quite well when my primary rifle jams. Since I got it off a body it has only about 30% health and I repaired it to 100. That way my pistol never fails me, otherwise Id need to switch to my knife.. hah I also need to find better body armor or modify the one I got. Nearly every hit makes me bleed out and having to bring twenty bandages with me to keep me alive in missions. Ive watched playthroughs where players have much better armor and it appears it can take quite a few hits before being an issue. Though they did mention they upgraded the armor.
