We've already covered the basics of Uncharted 4's single player campaign, now it's time to tackle multiplayer. Here we’ll provide you with some essential tips that will help you get through each battle with ease.
Uncharted 4 Loadouts
When you first get started in Uncharted 4's multiplayer there will be a bevy of options available when it comes to loadouts. Your best bet is to find one that's best suited to your play style, and focus on the perks that will be most useful for that loadout.
For instance, if you prefer to sneak up on your enemies you'll want to go with the Covert loadout. By using these weapons and winning match-ups you'll eventually earn the Stealth perk, which will give you the advantage of not being tracked by enemies. If you prefer something more on the tactical side you'll gain access to sidekicks, particularly the Hunter, who can gang up on foes and hold them off long enough for you to take them out.
As you get through these fights you'll be able to unlock new weapons and perks, expanding what's available in your collection. Eventually you'll be able to build your very own custom loadout from scratch tailored to your preferred method of combat. You'll have more options available as you spend LP (Loadout Points) following each match, which will give you access to everything from stronger pistols, harder hitting weapons, and more sidekicks. You can even pair perks together for more effectiveness, like Marking (which marks enemies on a map for your opponents), and Stealth (which allows you to sneak up on said enemies with little detection).
Remember to experiment as much as possible throughout each Uncharted 4 multiplayer match-up. A certain loadout may not look so desirable at first, however you may find yourself growing to like it more than your original loadout.
Uncharted 4's Helpful Allies
While you have teammates that will help you out in a pinch, it never hurts to have some extra muscle join the fray – and that's where Uncharted 4's Sidekicks come in.
These can be purchased through the store before the beginning of another match, and you will have three general ones available to you. We briefly discussed the Hunter, who will trap enemies long enough for you to finish them off, but there's also the Sniper who can shoot enemies while defending a particular spot on the map, as well as the Brute who will provide cover fire as you move from point to point ambushing enemies.
Keep in mind that certain Uncharted 4 Sidekicks only work well with particular loadouts, like the Hunter combined with the Tactical loadout. Nevertheless, this won’t limit you by any means as you still have access to great weapons and the assistance of these secondary characters. Don't be afraid to call on them for help.
Mastering Uncharted 4's Movement
You'll notice that the general structure of most of these maps feature an outside course revolving around a center. While some players may be tempted to simply stick to the outer parts of the stage instead of going to the center (fearing sniper fire), this is actually a predictable tactic that can will you killed more often than you might expect.
So how do you avoid this? Change up your movement. Instead of sticking to the outside, venture across the center where you can rack up a few kills if you're lucky, before returning to the outside for a little bit. Having unpredictable movement goes a long way in Uncharted 4’s multiplayer as it'll throw off your enemies – and maybe even line up a few for you.
In addition, when you're swinging across a rope (which you'll do in some stages), you'll be left vulnerable, and an enemy will have no trouble picking you off as you move from point A to point B. Try and clear out the area across the way prior to making a run for the rope, otherwise it might as well be a noose as you’ll be dead before you reach the other side.
Collecting Uncharted 4's Relic Points
Finally, along with Loadout Points, you'll have the option to earn Relic Points over the course of Uncharted 4. These are among the most valuable in-game currency available, as you'll be able to use them to purchase Vanity Chests. They provide you with additional customization options to change the wardrobe and weapons of your characters.
In addition, you'll also be able to buy One-Use Booster Chests, which provide you a single-time perk for you to use in the next match. These perks can range anywhere from mystical boosters, to sidekicks that are far less expensive than the ones you would normally buy.
How do you get Relic Points? You need to complete the Challenges available to you within Uncharted 4. To do this you'll need to find which ones are available on the main menu, along with the conditions that need to be met in order to complete them. These change on a daily basis so keep checking back for new ones to see what additional Relic Points you can rack up.
Also, keep in mind you'll earn 10 Relic Points with each match you win so make sure you jump into as many matches as possible. Even if you lose more than you win, you'll eventually begin to rack them up and give yourself more options to play around with.
With these tips on hand, you'll be conquering Uncharted 4's multiplayer in no time flat – and have a great time doing it.
