@  Dbl Incertion : (27 October 2014 - 07:41 AM) Its on the ol Gamefly list. doesn't look like a buyer to me but who knows mayhap its worth it. Dead Rising 3 was awesome.
@  kubucjuszowy : (27 October 2014 - 06:34 AM) Lennart, you had Ben Roethlisberger on bench, 62 fantasy points yesterday...  :Straight Face:
@  smokelessforman : (27 October 2014 - 05:54 AM) Is anyone getting Sunset Overdrive?  It seems kind of goofy to me.  I already did zombie goofy with Dead Rising 3, which is really good by the way.
@  kubucjuszowy : (27 October 2014 - 02:29 AM) damn, just about 3 points short of Jimmy's all time record of highest WK score. If I only started Ivory over McKinnon, could've scored 10 pts more
@  kubucjuszowy : (27 October 2014 - 02:14 AM) don't know who's Headhunter9871 Fantasty Team is but sorry for your loss. I hit highest score of 233.40 against your 87.57 but you could at least check your rooster dude, 2 players out 1 on BYE. Sour victory...
@  THE RED DRAGON : (26 October 2014 - 04:09 PM) just got my jeep out of the shop :(
@  Andrew6679 : (26 October 2014 - 03:03 PM) Now that I've paid off my car repairs I finally can buy some video games. And I can't make up my mind. First world problems...
@  Chilli2627 : (26 October 2014 - 12:39 PM) I enjoyed GTA online a lot.I plan on getting it on PS4 eventually
@  Andrew6679 : (26 October 2014 - 12:19 PM) So I know I'm a little late, but I haven't played GTA5 yet and was thinking about getting it for PS4. Is the online fun, or does it get boring?
@  Andrew6679 : (26 October 2014 - 12:15 PM) No I haven't played Evil Within, I dispise anything horror related. I've been playing some Black Ops 1. Oh the good old(ish) days...
@  Chilli2627 : (26 October 2014 - 09:40 AM) So what's everyone playing? Kinda dead in here!!
@  THE RED DRAGON : (23 October 2014 - 11:14 AM) did anyone play evil within?
@  Chilli2627 : (23 October 2014 - 10:48 AM) I think you are about 3 years to late to get BF3 on day 1
@  Andrew6679 : (23 October 2014 - 10:23 AM) Ermergawd I can't wait for BF3! it'll be the first game i pre order on the first day.
@  twentyONE : (22 October 2014 - 08:47 PM) That new Avengers trailer is BADASS!  Speaking of....I would assume we will see the first Star Wars teaser with it because of the whole Disney/Marvel deal.
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 October 2014 - 03:55 PM) https://www.yahoo.co...-200000420.html
@  Andrew6679 : (22 October 2014 - 02:07 PM) @DBL OUCH, Hardline? That's a huge insult to Destiny, haha.
@  Andrew6679 : (22 October 2014 - 02:03 PM) @Myelencephalous Haha i get your point. If your serious i accept lol
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 October 2014 - 09:30 AM) But hey, I'm still playing it trying to get all the shinny yellows and purples I can. But come November I expect I will set this game down and it will get dusty all the way through the Witcher 3 and maybe even Hardline next year.
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 October 2014 - 09:28 AM) @Andrew I think at least on the Xbox One. It was fun, once you figure out the nuances of weapons / abilities PVP became easier, the stories, strikes and all that are highly repetetive worse the Diablo 3 PC launch and that if you don't have friends to play the game with you will set it down and never pick it up.
@  Myelencephalous : (22 October 2014 - 08:29 AM) Andrew, i'll sell you my Destiny copy
@  kubucjuszowy : (22 October 2014 - 03:19 AM) @Holmboy, i see you did your FF homework, great pickups! stole my player once again, like every other week lol
@  kubucjuszowy : (22 October 2014 - 01:48 AM) anyone from our Battlestrats FF wants to trade? I need RB...
@  kubucjuszowy : (22 October 2014 - 01:48 AM) yeah, top of the league baby!  :Party: I am not giving that spot back lol
@  Andrew6679 : (22 October 2014 - 12:03 AM) I am thinking about getting Destiny. Is it as bad as everyone is saying? I would play lots of co op and matchmaking. I played the alpha and beta, i'm just curious what the battle crew thinks.

- - - INTRODUCTION - - -

This guide is to help all understand how to set up FireTeams. FireTeams (from now on shortened to FT or FTs) are an important part of Brink's Team-play, although you wouldn't know it from any tutorial aspects in the game. They simply don't mention anything on FTs. Even though the process is remarkably simple, because there is no mention of it at all to the player, the system can easily go unnoticed. The key advantage to being in a FT is HUGE!

You can now use in game voice to interact with your teammates! Novel idea huh?


"Public VOIP" (Voice chat with your entire team during a match and everyone pre/post match) is an option in the game, but it has to be manually activated by the server as the option is deactivated by default... The option that is left ON by default is "Fireteam VOIP". So this is the more reliable way of having in-game voice chat...

Exhibit A
Posted Image

But MIND BULL3TS! I want to be able to voice chat with my entire team! Not just my "Fireteam!".... Whats a Fireteam anyway?

Well I have good news for you, person who randomly yelled at me when I was creating this thread... FTs seem to be uncapped as to how many players can be involved. I say this with a little ignorance as the largest FT I have is 5 but I wouldn't imagine them limiting it to anything other than 4 if they were going to limit it at all, since the team max is 8...


First while in a match press ESC to bring up the in game Menu, from there click the Scoreboard Button.

Exhibit B
Posted Image

Once at the Scoreboard screen, highlight the player you want to start a FT With (See Exhibit B for a guide to choosing desirable FTeammates) left click to open that player's menu.

Exhibit C
Posted Image

Once at the Player Menu click the second option entitled " Create fireteam with #Playername# "

Exhibit D
Posted Image
*note I used some image editing trickery to show the entire text of that option, it will scroll the entire length of the message in-game

This will send a Fireteam Invite to that player. Now using your "Fireteam VOIP" key you can voice chat with your FTeammates.

Exhibit E
Posted Image


I also know there is a way to request to join an existing FT. I know this not because I have done it myself, I literally have never seen a FT before I make one, but I have been "petitioned" to join by other players. It pops up as another message to press F1 and you "vote" to let them in. That being said I imagine the process is relatively similar to creating a FT, where the player clicks on a member of the existing FT and clicks something to the effect of "Ask to join Fireteam"...


Also, there was a setting overlooked by the devs for the Volume levels for VOIP in and out, the following commands will fix this issue:

s_volume_voipin_db 0
s_volume_voipout_db 0

These commands can be entered into the console directly during the game or placed before loading the game in your Autoexec.cfg file located here:

*Note If you don't already have one, create a notepad file named Autoexec.cfg there, open with notepad and paste...

Well I think I covered everything. Hope this helps build the teamwork lvl in Public Servers.
