This guide is going to tell you the basics of C.D. I've had the game for barely 2 weeks but i've learned so much from playing that i was brave and courageous enough to buy the flex pass for Season 4 and other lovely skins. In this guide i will go through the basics from [Item Rarities] to [Secret Skills].
You may have seen some items like shotguns outlined in Grey. Or a Sniper Rifle with a golden Aura around it. This means it is one of the 5 rarities you can get on an item. The values are listed from Worst to Best following this Order:
- Common [White]
- Uncommon [Green]
- Rare [Blue]
- Epic [Purple]
- Legendary [Gold]
Common, Uncommon, and Rare items are usually found in abundant structures like houses. Yet there's a less chance that you will get them in an Aurora Airdrop, A normal Airdrop, or from a Chest.
Most of the weapons in the game (Excluding the Railgun), come in almost every rarity. Yet some like the Machine gun come in only Epic and Legendary.
Basics of the Map
The Aurora Valley is a 44kmx44km wide map with beautiful landforms and towns.
The Valley has landforms ranging from The Purple and Lovely Eden Vines to the Harsh and Frigid Snow. Some players pick exact spots on the map like Lion Park or Eden Vines. Sometimes an Airdrop with Very Good Loot will be somewhere in one of these spots on the map. Yet if your not good at the game i would reccomend that you don't go there. After 40 hrs of watching 30 people go after one airdrop i say that going for towns with an airdrop is dangerous. Find a spot where theses a decent amount of loot and may be in the first few circles and get to collecting. Landing on hills is also a good idea as if your being fired at you cant be sniped while in a bastion. They wont be able to hit you from above, Unless they use an Ejection Seat or a Springboard to propel themselves upwards towards your location and you meat your demise.
The West Wind & Gold Maps
The West Wind is a group of hunters that entered the valley illegally once they found that there are trace amounts of gold in the valley. If you died to one you might've noticed 2 things: They are in a suit that looks like a suit used in military combat and have a large orange flame covering their body. If you manage to kill them you will get a map piece which could be the Beach, Lake, Snow, Or Mountains. There is always 1 map piece you will never get which means you must trade with someone and get that final map piece to create a Gold Map!
Gold maps can be used every match. You will see a large gold circle with a mountain and a pickaxe icon. That means there could be one or multiple columns of light in the air (No They Aren't Red) Where go up to it and dig it you can get up to 1k gold. Gold is pretty much useless but hey, Having lots of gold is cool right?
Your Armed with your trusty shotgun. A shotgun fits in the class of close range weapons such as the pistols and the smgs. This means they cant fire a very far distance. Making them the kings of close range combat. Now you hear a shot, You will get a icon with a gun at the top of your screen. If its orange it means its nearby but if its red it means they are extremely close to you maybe even right behind your back. Now if you can look at your map and you'll see a gun icon telling what direction they are shooting from. Unless you already have a good cover hurry and build a bastion by pressing F5. Dont stand at the top try to take shots when you can. If they have the high ground they can easily hit you if your bastion is very low to the ground, Making them useless if your opponent has the upper advantage.
If you've ever walked into a house and grabbed your classic shotgun you may have noticed an annoying glowing gold on your compass. This means theres a chest nearby! Start breaking the ceiling and building up into the attic. Some of them could be in sneaky spots like behind boards on large buildings and spots you cant get to by going up and therefore you must destroy the whole thing.
You can get chests from the middle of some spots on the map, or ontope of buildings, towers, and warehouses in eden. Chests can be anywhere including in between cargo boxes, under bridges, in windmills and watchtowers and even on rocks. Get to looking!
Trading and Making Friends
So you found a guy in your random duo match and you think hes pretty good and can help you. So you friend him. So now your friends and can play together whenever you want unless they are offline or they refuse because they are in a match or are doing something else.
Since you have those 3 map pieces and need another go ahead in the global chat (bottom left corner) and put up that you need to trade. once you trade you will have a gold map which will always be yours yaaaaay!
