    The chests will disappear a short time after you open them, so if you are playing with friends, let everyone know first!

    This may have changed - not sure if I am correct, but I read this on a different site: "During the beta, if one player opened a chest then others in the session would only have a short time to collect the contents before it disappeared. This mechanic has been changed in the full game, so the chests appear independently for each player and can be collected without having an effect on your team mates."

    I'm really enjoying the Beta so far, i just wish that they hadn't put the cap at level 8. Or at least that they would stop giving me gear for Levels 9 and 10

    I'm absolutely loving the Hunter. I pick of enemies from extreme range, and then in tight quarters I move so fast from kill to kill that nothing comes close to hurting me. I can't wait to see how the full game turns out.

    For the Glide boost jump, if you want to get maximum lift, just double tap X as quickly as you can from the ground. Trying to boost at the apex of your jump will actually yield you less lift. Although you can't spawn your Sparrow vehicle inside of buildings, if you spawned it outside you can still drive it through the building as long as you avoid boosting into walls too much. Try to pick a special weapon that is very different from your regular gun that way you can handle more situations. For example, my regular gun is a Scout Rifle which has good RoF, range, and damage, but only does kinetic damage making it weak against shields. My special gun is a Fusion Rifle that has low range, high damage, and does arc damage making it very effective at tearing shields up. Together I can take enemies out at just about any range, can tear up shields, and shred through normal health.

    You can melee right after firing, which causes a slight "homing" effect and can push your character in closer to your opponent. Instead of wasting ammo on multiple small enemies, fire a few rounds into their face and melee immediately afterwards for easy kills. Mastering the double jump is key to doing really well in this game. You can press the x button while in midair to stop floating/hovering, whch will allow you to drop down onto a platform quickly. You can then immediately do another double jump as soon as you land. By jumping from small ledge to ledge this way you can quickly move around the battlefield and get the advantage on your enemies. The best way to grind glimmer and loot drops is by playing "explore" missions and hunting down random mobs. If you can find an enemy with a yellow health bar, they will have a higher chance of dropping something uncommon. Green or better items have bonuses and upgrades you can add to them, but only after you have used the weapon enough to unlock them. Not sure if you just have to fire the weapon, or if you need to actually kill things with it, but the item won't have the bonus until you unlock and purchase that upgrade. To see your progress, just press triangle while you have the item selected. Now for PVP: Heavy ammo is useless if you don't use it before you die. If you do decide to pick it up, keep the weapon equipped and use it on your next encounter rather than waiting for the perfect shot. Playing defensively is the best way to go, but there are specific times where being agressive is better. If you are feeling risky, run to the objective that's the FARTHEST from you when you start the match. Most of the enemy team will be sitting there and you can throw your grenade to get 1-3 easy kills. The rest will freak out and panic while you pick off the remaining bits of their health. On the "First Light" map, there are different types of vehicles you can use. If someone starts wrecking your team with one, use your super or heavy ammo to easily take it out while hovering above them. You also look super cool and feel badass. In PVP your equipped items don't make a difference to give you an advantage over other players. If you have the same type of weapon you will do the same amount of damage as everyone else. However, your unlocked skills for your character do apply, meaning that the upgrades which increase armor, recovery, and agility will affect you in combat and give you an advantage. After you hit level 8 you don't unlock upgrades as fast, but you can still unlock a few more of them on the second row which will help you in combat immensely.
