I’ve yet to complete a game of Mythic Firefight.

I normally only get to round 4.

Darkstar might be ugly depending on what they decide to spawn and where.

A bunch of final round bosses hanging out in the back of the center section (where you can’t get a clear vehicle shot) could be frustratingly futile.

Do you think that they’ll put Mythic Wardens in one of the Home bases?

Darkstar is gonna be such a pain in the -Yoink-. Remember those -Yoinking!- Mantis bosses and how overpowered they were? I’m not looking forward to this one, but I’ll try it just cause why not.

Welllllll… Maybe. I’ll have to see if I can assemble a team first.

Even then, it’s a maybe. H5G servers have been bad for me this last week or so. I blame the Christmas noobs.

How good are the rewards for completing it?

Do you get a lot more req points and exp than Legendary or Heroic Firefight?

Yes, I believe Mythic actually has the highest payout for winning.

That would be cruel.

Time to burn off some Answers.

That’s what they say:

My main concerns are:

Phaeton round,
Mantis round,
The new grunt goblin.

I’m running out of Hannibal Scorpions, I think I’ve only got 2. :sweat:

The new Wasps might be useful, but they’re ridiculously rare too.

Nice! Thanks for the heads up. In my experience Darkstar is the easiest WZFF map so I’ll be excited to see it toughened up in Mythic.

It’s the Protect the Generator round that gets me the most personally… But the Mantis round is a close second xD

They should make Mythic Permanent and just have the map itself rotate weekly, and then make Turbo the weekend playlist :confused:

Ridiculously rare indeed. I opened up a hundred packs and got exactly one hannibal wasp and a whopping zero ONI wasps.

I got a nice six hannibal mantises though, and eight of Jorge’s Chaingun… Odd balancing there, where an ultra rare is less common than a Mythic Legendary.

I got the Hannibal wasp cert in when the update released, despite that, I haven’t received that many.

Are certs supposed to increase the chance of you getting the related req in a pack, similar to what Three of Coins do in Destiny?

Yes, certifications are basically "Hey, you can get these sick new toys in packs too! Here’s 3 free, spend a couple of hundred bucks to get the next 65 you want!

With the Wasps, they should all be Legendary Mythic of rarity. I’ve gotten more Phaetons, ONI/Hannibal Mantises, and Nornfangs than any of those Wasps combined.

I think it basically just means that you’re able to get them in packs from then on, since it doesn’t really change much of anything once you do get them.

Besides, once you’ve gotten a certification for everything, then there’s no more “You can get more of these now!” in effect, which I doubt there ever was in the first place. I always just assumed it was a poorly worded “Congratulations, you’re allowed to find these in packs now” thing.

And that’s after they said they increased the chances. Ouch!

It’s worth noting the the REQ system is designed and balanced for Warzone, not Firefight, which is an afterthought.

It’s too bad that there isn’t some distinction or even a parallel REQ system where what’s earned in Firefight can only be used in Firefight. That way they could be more generous handing out the big toys or mess around with the REQ levels.

Well I’ve noticed slightly better variety in REQs - especially in Silvers - since that update, but Wasps in general are still quite rare, and the new Wasps came after that update. Possibility is that they have like a 0.1% chance or something to drop, but the update simply made it so that you’ve got better variety rather than increasing the odds on specifc items.

But yeah, they’re definitley balanced with the PvP Warzone in mind and not the PvE Firefight. Having FF-specific fields might be interesting; then I can really let loose with my uber-rare vehicles xD

Same here, well all except for the round 4 part. I have made it to round 5 and just unable to finish it out.

I really wish there was an achievement linked to it, or a commendation, just something. I don’t fully understand why, with a lot of the added weapons and whatnot, why we don’t also have added commendations.
