Also shooting weakpoints is good.

Cleaners are fucking chumps and minus their engineers and blitzers (who are melee only) they all have "shoot here to instantly kill me or nearly instantly kill me" spots on them.

Their heavies have a big obvious can on their right side (facing you) that is insanely easy to shoot, along with the big tank on their back which is so big you can hit it by shooting next to their heads from the front.
Their other guys are chumps.

Riker Heavies are a bit harder to hit the weakpoint of because their ammo backpack is well, actually directly on their backs- better just to wait out their reloads solo. When you shoot their backpack enough the ammo in it cooks off and they take a ton of damage and do the chicken dance for like 10 seconds.

LMB heavies and shield heavies have their ammo packs hang out to the right when they're facing you straight on and they're fairly easy to shoot. Same as the riker heavies- they'll take usually their entire armor bar in damage from cooking off their backpacks.

So, I tried this again, and apparently I'm awful at it. Last mission in the tutorial took me quite a while to finish. Then I get to the Hudson camp and the first side mission I try (kill some elite), and I'm unable to finish.  Ohhhhh, I see.

Is this just a case of not having gear and not having abilities, so this seems harder than it is? Like one or two seconds out of cover, and I'm just dead. It's somewhat discouraging.

I mean, I sucked a bit too at Warframe initially, but at least you died a bit slower there.

I would unlock your Base of Operations and do the green Medical missions until you have 500 points to unlock the Clinic upgrade which will give you the First Aid skill so you can self-heal without using Medical Kits.

Took me a bunch of times to do some of the earlier missions. I actually like the fact that it's not super easy. Key, I feel, is patience. Sit in cover, let em reload or do something stupid. Pop up, do some damage, don't stay up too long trying to get a kill, pop back down into cover.

Yeah, PvE is not a run and gun game barring some specialized end game builds.

I also have a lowbie character I'm leveling up that I can use to help you through the early missions if you can't find low level groups.

Is the game mostly (leveling/main quest line) soloable?

Yep. Game will ramp up according to group size, but definitely soloable.

Yeah I mostly soloed my way to level 30 with some of the story missions being done in PuGs through the matchmaking system.

Any ability to find each other in game easily? aka guilds/squads? And how does the ingame voice chat work?

Playing this co-op could be fun but preferably not pugging it.

Voice auto-connects in-game once you join a group. However, I play with my PS4 buddies and we just use the PS4 party system. In game works, but we had issues with it as IIRC it has a proximity value to it. As for guilds... no idea.

So, once you clear out a map, what's the best way to level? My map's looking pretty sparse outside of a few missions that I'm too low leveled (13) for.

You should have at least one side mission to visit the other safe houses in the other districts. You can also visit the other safe houses on your own (don't need an explicit side mission to unlock each one). In each safe house interacting with the board will unlock all the non-side missions and interacting with one of the people there will unlock all the side missions in the district.

Districts have a lot of level overlap (4-9, 6-14, 10-20) so you shouldn't ever stall.

Edit: typo
It's not made explicitly clear and I can't remember exactly what you need to do to unlock the safe house side missions but the general story flow after you unlock your Base of Operations is to do the main story mission in your current district and some of the other missions and that'll unlock the side mission to visit the safe house in the district that's the next set of levels above your current district. Then you go to that safe house unlock all the missions and rinse and repeat.

So while Destiny 2 has been reinventing it's own failures, The Division's finally gotten it's act together. Took a super long and frustrating time, but Massive managed to un-ass it's head from itself.

Gameplay is smooth now, Dark Zone isn't a twitchy gank-fest anymore where you're afraid of accidentally "going rogue", and loot has meaning.

The "new" story content is kinda weak though IMO. It's just audio tapes of the douchebag big bad taunting you and some day-in-the-life records of some survivors.

The game itself is a lot better though.

Been playing this a lot the past couple of weeks. It is fun. While it doesn't have the breadth of loot,  the set grinding reminds me of Diablo 3. Scratching the loot itch nicely.

I've heard rumors that this is a lot better. Recommend a purchase?  Destiny 2, I just don't feel compelled to play after one run-through with my titan. Spending more time with Wolfenstein New Order.

It's a good RPG looter cover shooter, with RPG being key as it doesn't matter how good your shooter skills are if you don't have adequate gear for the level of enemy you are fighting. It's also not a game that emphasizes spamming "special skills" like Warframe does.

Edit: cover shooter, that is

If you have a good PC it's also a really pretty game. Lot of environmental touches and impressive lighting/texture/design work.
