About how far in the game until you get to fly on the winged creatures?

I only just completed taking out of my second RDA installment. Those are bitches. It would be so much better if this game had stealth takedowns. It seems so ripe for it. I have to sneak and try to take out one guy or mech at a time, but you hit one and they all come running and then the reinforcements arrive.

Stealth would have made these RDA installations so much better and the game as a whole. Iím not even sure where all these RDA facilities are. I know youíre supposed to look for smoke stacks, but Iíve hardly seen any. Just the one I recently took out.

Do you guys focus more on the RDA facilities or just do story and side quests? Iím really trying to like this game, but itís making it difficult.

I remember the frustration you mention, but donít recall when it went away and if it was from picking skills or some armor/mods I got. Eventually, it gets much easier to use a stealth approach, especially with a decent bow and aiming at highlighted weak spots. Generally, I would advise pushing through story mission until you get the flying creature and then worrying more about side quests and filling in the map. Also, every Níavi camp or installation you visit becomes a quick travel point and those make things a lot easier to tackle. Quick travel does use stamina though, at least until you get a perk that makes it free, so I would always try to hit a bellsprig after using it.

About to get my Ikran. Next quest is Take Flight. I really hope it picks up now.

So far, it’s been all these fetch quests or meet him or her Na’vi there, etc.

I have only had 2 RDA encounters, 3 if you count 3 random mechs I took out with the sling shot.

Also, just got the shotgun, but completely forgot about it until this post.

And, I hit Belsprig all the time, but it does nothing for stamina. I hit them, it gets bluish, but stamina remains depleted.

It really needs to pick up…

Everyone give up on this game already? Too bad. Itís getting better and better as it goes along. At least Iím understanding the rpg elements ok. Still donít understand the inventory situation and why itís always full and even when I drop stuff, it doesnít make room. But, I plug along and like it decent enough.

Re: Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora (12/7/23; PS5, Xbox Series S|X, PC)

can someone please explain how the inventory system works and how to truly get rid of items in your inventory? i've been going mad because there are things i want to pick up, like health packs and grenades and every time i go to do it, it tells me my inventory is full. so i dump some stuff, even though i can see not every inventory slot is filled. i just don't know what to get rid of that i haven't before so i can pick something else up.

and, it took me over 2 hours just trying to find one blaze fruit so i can contribute to the clan and be done with one quest. over 2 hours. no joke. i even looked at videos and written pieces of where they should be online, but i couldn't follow it. so, i went to every mountain, every floating island i could and finally found one. but, it is these type of things (where you have no real sense of where to go sometimes) that makes this game so frustrating and so likeable at the same time. ugh!

This game was so ripe for stealth. I had to take out an RDA facility and you can walk up to the soldiers without being detected, but getting right behind them and not seeing that stealth takedown que is a real kick in the craw. You can run and punch the soldiers without detection and I know you can rip the soldiers out of the mech, but that must be a perk I haven’t been able to pick up yet.

But, I wish this was a little more Far Cry which, I believe, has stealth takedowns.

And leveling up takes forever. I’ve played 21hrs and only level 6.

Are you equipping new weapons and armor as you get them? ĎLevelingí in this game is nearly entirely a function of the gear you have equipped.

Yes. I upgrade and stuff. Buff up weapons, craft, but not to a large degree. I can’t ever pick up new resources bc it always says my inventory is full. I’ve done at least 10-12 quests. Should I be a higher level?

I guess it depends how youíre playing. If youíre doing side quests and looting the areas you clear, Iíd think so. IIRC, I was leveling pretty slowly until I got the Ikrun, then started moving up pretty steadily. I think I was at 18 when I called it quits.
