New scav mode

1 : Anonymous2021/04/14 16:16 ID: mqtygq

What if you could play the scavs that get sent into a raid by prapor to retrieve someone's gear on insurance. It obviously wouldnt be someone's actual gear but it could be something of a fetch quest like PMCs have. It could be worked into the scav karma system too when it's implemented. If the gear you are supposed to retrieve is really good you could extract and keep it for yourself but lose karma, and if you return it to prapor you get a random reward for it.

This would be really cool! And def in keeping with the lore.

Yeah. Maybe proper would reward in rare items. Also does anyone use therapist for insurance? Don’t know cuz I’m kinda still new

ID: guj5hyd

Normally most people only use prapor just because its cheaper. Therapist is much more expensive but you´ll get your items back quicker.

ID: gujgmzo

I kind of like an idea of gambling for the Prapor return. The better the gear you are returning, the higher the chance you get the good reward so it's more of a risk-reward assessment for the lucky scav.

ID: guk541u

If you wont be on for a while, or want the items back ASAP, Therapist. Otherwise, Prapor.

I'm worried that if this were added to the game I would never get kappa again because it would be all I play and my pmc would be completely untouched.

ID: guifphc

if you never play your PMC you don't really need Kappa though 🙂

ID: guihohp

You make a good point, but I need the flex

ID: guj4dqo

Or the gear lol

What if the scavs you see on the map are already the ones sent out to fetch the gear?

I just want group offline raids so me and my buds can learn the maps while learning scav spawns and practicing our shots.

ID: gujuucr

this would be very nice as a new player

6 : Anonymous2021/04/14 16:20 ID: gui3uox

Awesome. Best idea ive read on here.

ID: guiiyqd

I’m a bit surprised this is the first time you’ve seen it. Been thrown out a couple of times before.

I also like the idea of having an objective though

ID: guikb4j

It's suggested at least once every other week if not more frequently.

7 : Anonymous2021/04/14 17:05 ID: guia2a1

I like it! Much like how Death Stranding does lost packages, you could possibly pick up random gear around the map and turn it into prapor for more karma and a reward, or keep it yourself.

8 : Anonymous2021/04/14 19:03 ID: guiq71c

Well now I just want a whole scav questline

ID: guirwfn

End of it unlocks the cigarette scav

9 : Anonymous2021/04/14 17:07 ID: guiaecl

I mean, I'd dig it. Not real PMCs gear, but *some* NPC PMC gear, you go in, get it, get sweet scav karma and a bonus from papa prapor.

ID: guip0ob

I like this idea a little more. Functionally the same as OP’s but puts less power into normal player scavs hands lol

ID: gujovga

It’s literally exactly the same idea as what the OP said.

“It obviously wouldnt be someone's actual gear but it could be something of a fetch quest like PMCs have.”

Best idea I’ve seen on this sub which could direct gameplay after getting Kappa

11 : Anonymous2021/04/14 18:54 ID: guioxfh

Maybe Prapor forces you to return it, but you can choose to go with Skier to steal it because Skier.

12 : Anonymous2021/04/14 19:17 ID: guis2at

Sounds like fun so no-Nikita

13 : Anonymous2021/04/14 19:56 ID: guixi7o

what about going out for some stuff and get moonshine or intelligence folder? 😛 Like the scav case

14 : Anonymous2021/04/14 20:38 ID: guj39ea

Prapor: “Yes you scav, someone paid me money for their gear to be returned. Bring it back to me and I’ll pay you”

Also Prapor: “Yes you PMC, I give you money and gifts if you go to customs and irradiate some scavs there. By the way, pay me money and I’ll make sure you get your stuff back if anything happens...”

lol that would rule

great idea

18 : Anonymous2021/04/14 23:05 ID: gujlmea

maybe if you extract you get karma for every piece you leave on the scav and that stuff goes to the fence or cycled back into the scav pool of loot.

19 : Anonymous2021/04/14 17:48 ID: guig3pr

So, basically like a scav raid now but with even less risk and even more reward ?

ID: guih3xs

I suppose, I don't think the reward should be really good but it gives you something else to do other than rush gunshots you hear as a player scavs. I wouldn't say it makes the risk less

20 : Anonymous2021/04/14 20:20 ID: guj0vup

Dope. Wouldn't mind even if you were forced to turn it in, as long as roubles are involved.

21 : Anonymous2021/04/14 20:24 ID: guj1b9w

This right here would give life to the Scav. So many avoid it, but this would be legit dude. Great idea.

More ways to get free gear isn’t needed

25 : Anonymous2021/04/15 00:41 ID: gujwoi5

No! You got for real items of real players and get to keep their ammo as a bonus 🙂

26 : Anonymous2021/04/15 00:52 ID: gujxz8x

yea, and all other pmcs in the instance have the same fetch quest, kind of like a king of the hill

27 : Anonymous2021/04/15 00:52 ID: gujy2jr

This could be cool as a pmc, trying to get another players loot back in your pack and leaving the raid at a certain spot.

Very cool idea.

30 : Anonymous2021/04/15 01:26 ID: guk1wjp

How about we allow to keep all consumable and ammo and handover the insured gear

31 : Anonymous2021/04/15 01:32 ID: guk2la4

What if it's like your normal scav run but if you find PMC gear you can offer it to prapor instead of transferring into your stash.

32 : Anonymous2021/04/15 01:41 ID: guk3npp

That would be hilarious. You have a gps tracker and you need to go to those coordinates to try to retrieve people's gear

33 : Anonymous2021/04/14 18:14 ID: guijnfe

Awwww that sooo cute. You think the karma system exists and will be implemented? D'awwww this level of pureness is rare on the internet these days 🙂

People still play scavs?

36 : Anonymous2021/04/14 19:03 ID: guiq57v

Of course. I scav run as a warmup when I start to play for the day, and I use scav runs for fetch quests, like Living High is Not a Crime.

37 : Anonymous2021/04/14 19:03 ID: guiq8mw

I used to do that? Now I just run my PMC with meme loadouts.

38 : Anonymous2021/04/14 17:56 ID: guih8zy

People that are bad at the game like me do lol. Also it's a nice break from the stress of playing a PMC

39 : Anonymous2021/04/14 18:08 ID: guiiuk3

There is also fun in playing random loadouts and being dropped into random map state.

40 : Anonymous2021/04/14 18:24 ID: guil119

People wait 15-20 minutes on the matchmaking screen just for a shot at some free raider loot from Reserve.

41 : Anonymous2021/04/14 18:25 ID: guil4fm

I mean killing raiders as a scav is the only thing I do as a scav...

42 : Anonymous2021/04/14 17:19 ID: guic1w3

Yeah but it would be player scavs avoiding PMCs to get the gear and trying to get out. I personally hate when I'm constantly getting rushed by player scavs as a PMC. I think it would only do good for the game but I see where you are coming from

43 : Anonymous2021/04/14 18:17 ID: guik1lx

Meh. For the most part I don't see PMCs in scav raids too often. I love pvping as a scav though, makes it all the better when you (head, eyes) a Chad from a bush with your saiga9 or grach

44 : Anonymous2021/04/14 18:26 ID: guil9tz

So you spawn late in a near empty raid, with some indication of where some insurance gear is, and then just get to take it, casually leave via one of the very easy scav extracts, and can keep whatever you find?

45 : Anonymous2021/04/14 19:01 ID: guipw3p

Did you read what he said? You'd keep it and lose scav karma, or turn it in and gain scav karma plus a reward

46 : Anonymous2021/04/14 19:03 ID: guiq8pl

Who cares? If you're potentially getting free insurance loadouts late in a raid when there are few threats left on the map anyway, why worry about karma? And even if you are worried, why not just steal one kit, return the next, steal the next, etc?

It's just another easy money route that comes with zero risk.

47 : Anonymous2021/04/14 21:15 ID: guj8cby

Someone already suggested that about a month ago..

48 : Anonymous2021/04/14 21:45 ID: gujc5bf

I like it. I like it a lot.

Brainstorming further, since the pmc gear technically only exists in that session, you could have a sub section when choosing a scav raid with available contracts to go into the ongoing raid where that gear is. Any gear not retrieved by player scavs either takes a long time to come back, or is gone forever.

Players would essentially be paying scavs for the hope of getting their gear back. But scavs being scavs, you just don't know if you are getting your stuff back. Like you said, a rep penalty for keeping the gear. Maybe the gear not counting as found in raid.

Your reward would be a percentage of the insurance cost going to you.
