There is a fortune of things to know about DRG, this is a guide to highlight some of the lesser known details, or give you some ideas on how to improve in ways you hadn ’ thymine think of before .
teamwork Makes the Dream workplace
communication is vital
There are multiple ways to communicate in DRG
- Voice chat
Easiest way to communicate, but not all may be able to use it for one reason or another.
- Text chat
Takes a moment to type things out, but still a reliable way to inform your team of what’s going on.
- Pinging, Saluting, and Shouting
Not as reliable as the other two, but they are quick and easy, just press a button and most likely your team will get the message.
Note that the laser pointer can be seen by the whole team, not just the spots you ping, so you can point directly at something and they can see where your laser pointer is going.
When you go to start any kind of objective, ask yourself “ Is my team ready? “, if you can not answer this question then you need to not start that objective .
There are a couple of things you can do in this situation :

- You can hold Alt to look around and see where your teammates are and what they are doing
- You can ask your team if they’re ready
You can not be expected to wait everlastingly, but please do give your team some breathing room .
When something major is happening, it is in your best concern to group up immediately.
Doing then will have the succeed effects :
- You spend less ammo because your team is helping kill bugs around you
- You don’t need to spin around as much, if at all, because you have temmates to watch your back, and you theirs
- You will get picked back up quickly if you go down
- You can take full advantage of the equipment your teammates have brought with them to the fight
You don ’ t need to stay clumped up, fair near one another, near enough that your team can help you .
Do not Rush
It doesn ’ t matter if you want to get things done fast, rushing objectives may lead to a team rub, and rather of saving meter you will only barren everyone ’ s time .
This goes for everything :
- Starting the refinery
- Digging out an egg
- Popping a Dreadnought cocoon
- Calling the escape pod
All of these can screw over your team if they weren ’ metric ton ready, there may be one survive thing your team wanted to get, an consequence you didn ’ thyroxine see, or in the case of alien eggs, another teammate may be digging one out excessively .
What’s bad about digging out two eggs at once?
Each egg either spawns a massive amount of glyphids or it starts a swarm, having multiple of these happen at once can easily overwhelm a team, the higher the difficulty the easier it can overwhelm.
I have seen sol many missions fail precisely because person was impatient and kept going for an egg, there are sound recording and ocular ques to alert you that an egg has been taken, when you see these you need to stop and wait for the current bug problem to to be resolved .
When fighting the counterpart dreadnoughts, try to keep their health bars even
- They only heal if the difference in their health is too far apart
- The one that loses health to heal the other loses far less health than the other is gaining back, this is a huge waste of everyone’s ammo
- You don’t need to keep firing at all times, you can wait a moment to find the other twin, this can prevent the above point
If you realize a dreadnought is targeting you, it ’ s in your team ’ sulfur best interest for you to lead it aside from them for ampere hanker as you can, this gives them a better view of their weakspots.
In the game ’ sulfur code, these act as 2 meters of outdistance between a tease and a musician when the bugs are pathing, they want to take the shortest distance, so they choose to path around repellent platforms .
If you have no openings leading to you or the path to you is besides long, bugs will freely walk over repellent platforms like they ’ re not even there, additionally if you ’ ra standing on rebarbative platforms they will again just walk right up to you .
