    I think you misunderstood my post

    Ok, so not that I'm almost kinda maybe considering getting a Switch for this... but... is it cross platform all the time? On PS4 you only encounter the PC Mouse 'n' Keyboard super-snipers when you're actively choosing to crossplay with a friend on PC, so most of the time it's a level playing field. Well... kinda level. As level as it can be. Someone talk me out of buying a Switch for this!

    You're probably right. I've got Canon's entry level 55-250mm lens (this one) so that'll probably be fine as long as it's bright enough. I'm fairly sure the limiting factor on my photography is still me rather than the glass anyway

    Thanks @Sidewaysbob. I’ve been a few times before but this is the first time I’ve splashed out on grandstand tickets, so I’m hoping to be above (but behind) the 6 rows of spectators as stuff goes up the hill. Good point about the wide angle stuff though. Last time I was there my wide angle lens packed up after about 3 shots, which hampered me somewhat... I’ve got a spare now

    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    Ok, I'm not gonna read this thread for a bit because I don't want any spoilers and I'm late to the party, but just wanted to pop in and say wow - what a game! I'm about an hour in and haven't felt that rush in a single-player game for ages - years, even. Can't wait to see what's ahead Only downside is that the level of violence and gore probably means it's going to be a solo experience for me, as the other half isn't a fan. Thanks to @kwakpriest for selling me his copy

    Does anyone have any recommendations for (Canon EF or EF-S) lens hire? I'd quite like to get a nice fast telephoto (up to about 300mm, I guess) to grab some decent shots at the Festival of Speed this year. I've had a quick search and there are recommendations from a few years ago upthread for http://www.lensesforhire.co.uk/ and http://www.calphoto.co.uk/ - does anyone know whether they're still any good, or have any alternatives? Do any of these companies attend events like the FoS so that you can pick up the lens you've ordered on the day, and return it as you leave? I'd pay for that!

    Possible Avengers: Infinity War spoiler: Sounds cool. Really tapping into their kids and grown-up kids target market

    I was “the other guy” for the first time ever yesterday. Running around Dusty Depot, thinking I’d killed everyone there when someone sprayed an assault rifle at me from the middle roof. I jumped, span, and nailed him with 3 headshots from my AR. Amazing. I’m almost always on the receiving end of stuff like that - it felt amazing!

    @jimmmUK the 100 player Battle Royale mode is free with paid-for Season Passes which open up weekly challenges and let you unlock cosmetic rewards (skins etc). DON’T BUY SEASON 3 though, as it ends in a couple of days. Season 4 will start as soon as Season 3 ends.

    Yay, I finally made it to Tier 100! Boo, so did nearly everyone else, judging by the sheer number of John Wicks in every game. It’s like the Battle of the Clones out there. The boy’s desperate for the John Wick skin so I think I might help him rattle through the weekly challenges. He seems to be far too busy rocket riding off the side of the map (I think it’s called “having fun” pfftt) with his mates to do them.

    Also, whilst I’m here... has there been any word on whether the Season 4 pass will be for real money or V-Bucks? I’ve probably got enough bucks for the next pass, but I thought Epic said something about future passes being for real money only.

    Yeah that’s what I’m doing at the moment. Bit of a pain especially as it seems it only stores the last 5 (I think?) across all profiles on the ps4. Glad I deleted all those games trying to make space, all the time thinking “How big are these damn replays?!!”

    Has anyone been able to save a replay on PS4? I just get an error code which appears to indicate not enough disk space, even though I have about 700Gb free. The boy came 2nd last night and was desperate to save it to show his mates. He found 2 fort-a-ports and stacked them on top of each other for a laugh. How come when he does stuff like that the only person who sees him doesn’t know one end of an RPG from the other, but when I do it I’m suddenly surrounded by expert snipers... harrumph.

    @grindmouse Yeah it’s a bit of a lottery. I found the northeast corner of the map pretty quiet when I was doing it but the weekly challenges seem to change the way people play the map (as is the point, I guess). Last week’s chest collecting location is usually pretty dead, too, I’ve found. Came 2nd in a random squads high explosives game last night. It came down to my squad of 3 vs 1 guy, and a combination of overconfidence and stupidity on our part and good old fashioned sneakiness on his meant he wiped us out. I was SURE he was pinned in the house we were demolishing... turns out he really, really wasn’t, but I only figured that out as his RPG hit the back of my head... Love that mode though - almost no instant kills from people you haven’t even seen, and guided missile duels are great fun.

    I thought that until this week's challenges came out, including the 'Get 3 kills at Tilted Towers' one I think I've landed in the town itself once or twice since it's been there. I play in random squads quite a bit and people will regularly plonk their markers down there, but I usually aim for the hills to the south where you can pick up a gun or two and then work your way through the mayhem to meet up with your team. I just don't cope well with there being people on all 4 sides and above and beneath me, and judging by the number of times my squad gets wiped out in seconds, neither do a lot of other people... Talking of challenges... it seems people largely ignore them in squad mode. I cleared the "Search 7 chests in Moisty Mire" one in 2 games by going solo in squad mode (and ended up as the 5th best squad in the first game). Not a soul in Moisty either time. Same with the Anarchy Acres treasure map one.
