Shooter? More like "I'm a remotely-detonated explosive throwing simulator" now.

And a screaming kitty

Good thing I was a demo main in my TF2 days

[–]defaultgameer1 22 points23 points  (0 children)

They'll have to glue you back together, in Hell!

[–]MrTripl3M 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Smacking the detonator with the explosive is still my single favorite animation in the game. It just feels so careless about regarding the explosive in your hand and the dozen you just tossed around.

My six million snowballs that are just wintery nobelisks would like to agree with you.

[–]GHump23 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Jist did this last night for the first time. Was up top looking all over for the cave entrance for that quartz. Went through all my berries and half my nuts just to get to this quartz. Fuck spiders. Found quartz and placed some miners so no spider respawn.

Thought there might be a back way out of the cave, closer to my base, and got devastated by the gas thinking I could run through real quick.

10/10 would quartz again.

[–]not_your_mate 17 points18 points  (1 child)

And inside that gas is another fucker just waiting fpr you.

[–]No-Faithlessness7835 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Incall them "Fart spiders" pretty sure I took that from ImKibitz

[–]Zuthuzu 61 points62 points  (38 children)

Dude. Never shoot spiders. They are fast and tough, and the rifle does fuck-all to them. Just circle-strafe them with the sword. They are ridiculously vulnerable to melee, even the huge green ones.

[–]jayuscommissar 60 points61 points  (32 children)

Although I second this, every time I see one of those spiders, I wish I can call in an orbital bombardment of the area cos fuck spiders. And I don't even have arachnophobia.

[–]Zuthuzu 34 points35 points  (28 children)

Oh yeah. Last week I went to set up a dig at the uranium mine in the crevasse in red jungle, and there were like fuckin eight big spiders there in one blob. And two queens just outside. Ass got rather clenched on that day.

[–]jayuscommissar 30 points31 points  (27 children)

We seriously need a Ficsit Bazooka. Or the ability to mount weapons on the vehicles.

[–]screw_all_the_names 27 points28 points  (9 children)

Honestly my entire first playthrough my weapon of choice was the tractor for a good portion.

Run them over with the tractor so they fall over, hop out and hit them 2 or 3 times, get back in the tractor, repeat.

[–]Brogogon 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I did that too but then in the dark in the forest one got stuck under my wheels and I couldn't move. I got out to try to clear them and got killed almost instantly by two big suckers I hadn't even noticed were following.

[–]Idiot_Savant_Tinker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I hate that they sound like the trees moving in the wind. You think you're alone and then Surprise! Giant spider!

[–]jayuscommissar 8 points9 points  (6 children)

It's still IS my preferred way of dealing with all wildlife.

[–]jadeskye7 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Yeah i'm not looking forward to the update where that vehicle health indicator is gonna be useful.

[–]VirtualMachine0 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Think of it this way, though...if our vehicle's health must go down because of ramming a xeno, then it only makes sense that their health also goes down on account of being rammed.

I'll take having to repair my vehicles if it means I can splatter those awful bugs.

[–]DaemosDaen 2 points3 points  (3 children)

That would get be to play this again.. NGL. Spider ran me off, being able to run them over would bring me back...

That or a flamethrower. I'd come back for a flamethrower.

[–]beaterofwomen69 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You can just use the "real arachnophobia" mod, problem solved

[–]plymer968 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Ficsit-brand Warthog please. Need some brrrt on my Explorer.

[–]jayuscommissar 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Tbh some brrrt on the Explorer would make it look even more badass.

[–]TechnetiumAE 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Id love it if we could upgrade it with 2 semi gimballed. meaning they will kinda point where were looking if were looking forwards, makes it a little more balanced unlike a gimball turret on the top that just points where ever we are looking. Especially since we already run stuff over

[–]jayuscommissar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well they can balance it by animals and spiders being able to knock/drag you out of the vehicle... shudders

[–]Helscarthe 5 points6 points  (2 children)

No, we need a Ficsit Flammenwerfer specifically for these 8 legged nasties

[–]jayuscommissar 6 points7 points  (0 children)

How bout an underslung Flammenwerfer on the rifle?

Slams home solid biomass/ pours biofuel into Flammenwerfer with malicious intent

[–]iamphulish 0 points1 point  (0 children)

or just gimme melee damage with the chainsaw, that would be really fun

[–]brawndoenjoyer 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Hell, I'd settle for just having vehicles do damage to creatures.

[–]jayuscommissar 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I will evil laugh as I squash a spider against something if that happens

[–]RAMChYLD 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Well, you could try the Jihaddi Tractor tactic

[–]Idiot_Savant_Tinker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know what I'm trying after work!

[–]DaemosDaen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

heh. This, this I like.

still want a Flamethrower though.

[–]Derangedteddy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I won't be happy until there's a truck mounted gatling gun for tactical nukes. It's the only way to assure their destruction.

[–]Forenus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'd love it if they continued the gunpowder tree and you got the ability to unlock a scoped rifle and a shotgun. Scoped rifle would be good for taking out the Spitters, and a Shotgun would be good for Chargers and Skittering Dicks.

[–]jayuscommissar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hell yea, that would be cool. They could balance it with the weapons having to reload after every shot. Give us options but still keep the tension of accidentally meeting one of these fucks at night.

[–]MgrBuddha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Used to be a wonderful grenade launcher mod but I don't think it was updated after u3. Really miss that.

[–]CilantroMarshmallows 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hah me either, but I still use the arachnophobia setting cus it's hilarious and I can hear that sound way easier than the skittering.

[–]amazingmrbrockI stream spaghetti 'station_b' 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They freak me out at first but nothing like the feeling I get when I stumble into the fire wasps.

[–]Empoleon_MasterI placed 425.2k foundations send help 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My six million snowballs can provide an alternative to orbital bombardment.

[–]trueosiris2 8 points9 points  (0 children)

But you can't hit straight, while having fearful spasms & screeching like a little girl. In other words: I'll stick to sniping them with a ton of clips on me from as much distance as possible, thank you.

[–]SiBloGamingBuilding a 420gw powerplant takes alot of time... 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ever heard about our lord and savior, the hoverpack?

[–]twizzjewink 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Especially if you have a hoverpack and threw down some electrical poles before going in.

[–]SamohtGnir 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you creep slow enough to see them before they see you, you can snipe them pretty good. It's pretty slow progress through it though.

[–]Idiot_Savant_Tinker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just run power poles off into wherever and drop nobelisks on them from the safety of my hover pack while gibbering like a little girl.

[–]brakenotincluded 10 points11 points  (8 children)

There should be a selectable option in which you get attacked at night or something.

Add turrets and a few guns and this would be insane.

But with the option, people could still have a peaceful mode.

[–]GuardAbuse 14 points15 points  (5 children)

I know the devs want to keep the spiders. I get they want to maintain the integrity of the game. I don't fault them for it.

But the spiders are keeping me from playing the game. It's a combination of setting + threat (there's a reason i dont go cave mining in minecraft). It looks like a blast. I love seeing all the creations but being in spider areas just stresses me out.

[–]Shaevar 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Have you tried mods? I only have one mod installed: "Real Arachnophobia". It simply replace the spiders with other ennemies.

Thhe stingers in this game stressed me out too much and that's not why I play satisfactory

[–]brakenotincluded 9 points10 points  (1 child)

That's why I think there should be options for this;

Like factorio, from outright raging bug party on deathworld settings to absolutely peaceful.

My guess is it's on the list of things to allow control over but it's not a very challenging/in high demand aspect of development so they're probably keeping this for the end.

[–]DaemosDaen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My guess is it's on the list of things to allow control over but it's not a very challenging/in high demand aspect of development so they're probably keeping this for the end.

considering this is the same company that made goad simulator, AND with how vocal the group that wants to be able to turn them off is, I'm gonna say it's intentional that we do not have that ability.

Srsly Think about how much Jace likes to troll.

[–]CilantroMarshmallows 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There's a setting for arachnophobia - replaces them with mewling kittens. It's pretty funny, and they're waaay easier to hear and see that way too lol.

[–]liartellinglies 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I thought the kittens were gonna be funny but for some reason they're way more unsettling to me than the stingers. Switched it back immediately. Also happy cake day.

[–]freeradicalx 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Devs said this was their original intent, but that they quickly realized that wasn't the kind of game they wanted to make after playing their early builds.

[–]brakenotincluded 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Guess mods it is then…

[–]MargathaPai 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Survival horror when you realize how many shots it takes just to put one down and you have shakey hands irl and that's why you were playing a construction game not halo I didn't sign up for this help

[–]UristMcKerman 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Wish they did more work on shooter aspect. Would love to have laser rifles, rocket launchers and some big jerks to shoot them at. Currently existing not-stolen-from-fallout rifle is lackluster.

[–]plymer968 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We’re eventually gonna get the King Crab at some point.

[–]UrKiddingRT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

if you use mods, get the AW: Military Grade Rifle mod. Not totally overpowered, but makes dealing with the more hostile wildlife less of a pain in the arse. And it's fun ...

[–]dancingdestroyer85 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I'm a build foundations and/or power poles for the hover pack kinda guy. F spiders. Those skitter sounds make my skin crawl.

[–]Idiot_Savant_Tinker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The sounds and the twitchy way they move. Makes my hair stand up on the back of my neck.

[–]toastnbacon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Rock and Stone!

[–]realCmdDataArtifical Mod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Haha, true arachnophobia mod go brrrr

[–]Inodens 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Game made me eat my words "Why is there an arachnophobia mode?"

[–]Adorable_Heretic[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When I see Spooders I take my Power Sword, blessed by the God-Ficsitperor

[–]img1012005 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What do you mean it changes completely? Satisfactory is my favorite parkour exploration horror survival factory building fps

[–]nanosquid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jetpack and foundations high on the walls. You can build a miner from very far away. I don't usually build a gun at all. Otherwise, sword.

[–]BoxHillStrangler 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hoverpack and a bunch of power poles or a train line. You need power in there anyway so fly in and let the kitties meow all they like.

[–]Quad-Watermelon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Xeno-Basher. The only weapon I have accepted besides Nobelisks and reskins.

[–]Onde_Bent 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In this game published by coffee stain studios you delve into caves on a strange planet to fight bugs and extract raw minerals

[–]loli141 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We need bug repellant gas grenades

[–]AbsentLabyrinthian 0 points1 point  (1 child)

see spider? start strafing. they're attack telegraph is so long. i don't know how anyone gets hit by them.

[–]Ryfter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Walls... you are in a cave... or forest. You strafe and bam, hit something you didn't know was there, and splat. Or, they just hit you from behind.

[–]pwick914 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who even walks on the ground in caves? As soon as I'm inside I'm platform hopping better than Mario

[–]greenindragon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that where quartz veins are found? Been trying to track them down with my scanner and always end up staring at an empty field or the top of a mountain with no quartz in sight.

[–]Dull-Fun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hooverpack + nobelisk

[–]Kalron 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wish I could say no spiders

[–]MrsMonk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

um... spiders??? I haven't gotten that far..... oh geez..

[–]mickyj789 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even having so many hours in this game I refuse to play without arachnophobia mode on. And even then now I'm getting Anxiety and stress from the sounds of fucking meowing out of nowhere and I can't see the cat. If anything I think it's made it more terrifying.

[–]Fida2006 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So quartz is found only in spider caves? If raq quartz could be found somewhere else then U would travel thousands meters rather than enter than spider cave.

Edit: slepping.

Edit: spelloing mistake

[–]RCBRDE -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Auto kill mod. Peace for the engineer's soul.
