@  Michrulejj : (20 December 2014 - 02:00 AM) @DBM yeah, I finally have time to actually get into it. But my controller was registering that R2 was always held in so I sent it back to sony and another one is coming. So I'll get back on when my controller comes back. And btw it may have been my Father too, he never does this stuff by likes Destiny for some reason. haha

@  DBMgamer : (13 December 2014 - 05:51 PM) just finished watching it and Yeah Arm chair Execs, lol  Sony did this same thing with the PS3 when 360 was out in front of sales despite losing money on them.... its a cycle.  I was surprised that Sony didn't use the same Price point since they are not taking any loss on the PS4's at this point
@  THE RED DRAGON : (13 December 2014 - 05:36 PM) lol - makin it rain
@  DBMgamer : (13 December 2014 - 05:08 PM) LOL @Red that "Bleeding Money" Tumbnail had me do a double take when I first saw it.
@  Andrew6679 : (13 December 2014 - 02:22 PM) I just deletedit because i figured it was gonna be dead on here for a while hah. Thanks to both of you. It's a great deal, but i just don't think i would bring it with me anywhere. The only time i could justify a portable is when i go on vacation.
@  twentyONE : (13 December 2014 - 09:23 AM) I LOVE my Vita!.......but I hardly ever play it.  There's a ton of good games with a large variety.  YMMV with remote play but if your PS4 is on WiFi and not wired then forget it.  My biggest problem is that Its VERY uncomfortable to hold for more than 5 minutes so I absolutely cannot play it without a "grip" case on it.
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 December 2014 - 07:50 AM) Sales on games from Amazon https://games.yahoo....-010000241.html
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 December 2014 - 06:54 AM) Did you get your answer about the vita? I've been thinking about t for a bit too.
@  Andrew6679 : (12 December 2014 - 11:16 AM) Seriously
@  Dbl Incertion : (12 December 2014 - 08:25 AM) O_O this place is awefully dead for so many games being out ya'll.

    The irony of playing a game called Destiny is the fact that so many people are giving up their actual Destiny in reality for a virtual world. Something Im guilty of myself and fight daily.

- - - 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.
