Hello, I’v noticed that using the shadow ropecaster, if I aim and miss, it consumes an ammo, while when using the basic and the Carja ropecaster, if I shoot to the sky or anywhere without a target, I don’t wast any ammo. Why is that, did I miss something?

@filocullen Must be a minor glitch or oversight, if it isn't because the Shadow Ropecaster is a slightly higher grade weapon than the Carja Ropecaster. It's been a while since I played, so apologies if this isn't helpful!

Recently beat The Frozen Wilds. I thought the main game was ok but by the end I found myself glad it was over, TFW however I enjoyed much more, if you like the main game then it's unmissable.

@Arugula I tried going back to it but I just couldn’t get back into the combat seeing as it is end game and it had been a year or so since I completed it. I think I gave up not even getting past the first two enemies..

@Thrillho I put it on an easy difficulty setting so the combat wasn't particularly challenging.

@Arugula You're like me; I really enjoyed The Frozen Wilds as basically a miniature version of the main campaign, with a tighter focus that prevented me from getting that familiar mid-story attention-wandering I so often get with large, open world games. It's gorgeous, well-paced and offers some insight into wider events. I'm always surprised that more people didn't like it but hey, each to their own.

I'll be treating The Frozen Wilds like its own sort of game. I'm looking forward to it. When I get the desire to play HZD again, I'll have this brand new (albeit far shorter) campaign to dig into.

I'll play on Normal like with the main campaign, and save my Ultra-Hard NG+ playthrough for some point in the future when I have a hankering for pain.

so i FINALLY got round to getting Zero Dawn Complete Edition and i have a few questions

first off when i put in the code for the themes and digital art book DLC it also downloaded, The Frozen Wilds and a load of other DLC (all the costumes and weapons) BUT apparently those are for the original version of the game which i do not own, now i have not been able to find any of the outfits or weapons in the complete edition either, which i assume is a different game as it has a different icon and install name so just what is going on? is all the DLC already in the complete edition? and if so why can't i access any of it? and why did it download the DLC for the standard edition when i don't own the standard edition and the DLC codse was only meant to be for the Theme and Art Book?

i really have no idea what's going on so any help would be appreciated

@FullbringIchigo I can't be certain, but I think the DLC outfits and weapons are simply made available to buy and craft from the various vendors scattered about the various towns and villages. They won't simply appear in Aloy's inventory free of charge; you've got to track them down.

As for The Frozen Wilds, I think that area of the map won't unlock until you reach a certain part of the story. I would assume that the Complete Edition would have it included by default, but then I'm not sure why you've been given access to download it separately. Look at your map screen and if you've got a large white area in the upper-right, to the north-east, then you've got The Frozen Wilds installed and ready to go. You'll likely get a prompt to go explore there and trigger the DLC once you've reached a certain level / point in the story.

@RogerRoger perhaps i have yet to do the Proving so i am very early in the game, i will check later when i have the time to play my PS4 again today

@FullbringIchigo Oh blimey, yes, clear the Proving and then see. That kinda marks the end of the game's second prologue, and then you're able to crack on properly.

You're welcome! Hope it's all alright and that you enjoy the game!

@RogerRoger to be honest i was just hunting about in the first area for ages without progressing the story (i left Rost waiting for me for about 3 hours), it is SO much fun and i love the open world in this game

i think i'll be playing this game pretty much exclusively until DBZ Kakarot come out

FullbringIchigo

@RogerRoger so i did the proving and the first merchant i came across had all the DLC costumes and weapons and i checked the map and there is a huge white area up the top of it so it looks like you was right,

it's still odd that the code for the art book and theme also downloaded the DLC for the original version of the game though, i reached out the sony and the developer on twitter about it but no response as of yet

@FullbringIchigo Yeah, I basically put off most of the main story missions until I had no other choice but to engage them. The open world design isn't innovative at all, but it's fun hunting these machines and upgrading your stuff, and Aloy controls well, lack of proper climbing controls aside.

@FullbringIchigo It'll be interesting to see what Sony and Guerilla say about the random DLC download, but I'm glad all that content ended up being where it was supposed to be.

Especially since my reply was a total guess.

@Ralizah it may not be innovative but it is still a lot more fun than a lot of other open world games such as MGSV or any cookie cutter open world game ubisoft has pumped out over the past 10 years

"I pity you. You just don't get it at all...there's not a thing I don't cherish!"

@FullbringIchigo It seems very Ubisoft to me. It's a lot like Far Cry 3/4 in terms of the open world and the activities you engage in (particularly the hunting aspect), but with a much more creative setting and tons of visual polish. The MH-esque machine battles are what really distinguishes it, though. There's... really nothing like those battles in any other open world RPG I've played.

Still haven't played MGS V. I'm not good at stealth. I want my radar and vision cones from the first two games back, lol.

@Ralizah i tend to ignore MGSV whenever i can, it's an incomplete mess that throws away everything that made MGS what it was so if i was you i wouldn't bother with it

4 was a perfectly fine ending for the series

@FullbringIchigo I bought MGS V in a sale for $10 years ago. Ground Zeroes was actually my very first PS4 game. It was... absolutely beautiful. Well-constructed. But I sucked at it.

I won't really be approaching it from a MGS viewpoint. Like BotW was to Zelda, it seems to radically redefine how the series plays, so it's probably best to approach it on its own terms.

I never played 4, having never owned a PS3. Maybe one day Konami's pachinko business will dry up and they'll actually port the game to other platforms.

@Gremio108 I saw from your comment on the WAYP article that your making good progress here. I’m curious to hear more impressions.
