Walker pit

Can someone tell me what the walker pit is for, and what are the advantages of upgrading them?

    Walker Pit is for upgrading walkers for your Outpost Defence.

    I don't see the point in the walker pit / Outpost thing at all really.
    When I was offered it at a certain level and built the outpost I kinda wished I hadn't bothered and consequently hardly do any Outpost missions.
    Am I missing out on something here?

    @enCrypt Doing outpost raids can get you a lot of Trade Goods (TGs). TGs are used to buy gear and other supplies in the trade goods shop, including guaranteed legendary gear. You never know when you can find a gem in there. and best part? it wont cost you any real money.

    Oh ok, I didn't realise that.
    Are Trade Goods the little crate icons at the top of the screen in the camp view?

    If you're talking about the crate icon between gas and supplies cans, then yes.

    Totally agree with @Monsuta. I wouldn’t waste Trade Goods on upgrading walkers. Even Level 26 walkers can get mowed down with a decent Assault. In fact, I would welcome the extra XP.

    For now, you are better off buying tokens, gas, radios, etc. from the TG Shop.

    Are people seeing high-level walkers in OP yet?? I haven't done any raids since 2.8 dropped.

    @SCBMA How much TG you got in this raid?
    There is NO higher rarity when we use all legendary to craft the badge, we are being punished for having a chance to get LOWER rarity.
    This is NOT WORKING AS INTENDED & it's UNFAIR.

    I think it was 551 trade goods. I forgot to look at the XP amount. I'll post here when I find that outpost again.
  • xxarea83xxxxarea83xx Member Posts: 221
    @SCBMA What does your outpost log say about the TG you earned? If it was only 551, then outposts aren't going to be worth the risk for most players.

    @SCBMA Yep you can check your log
    @DLich would be very interested about the TG amount

    @SCBMA Was there any indication before going in that the OP would have high level walkers?

    @Teeceezy @Shteevie Maybe give raiders the "Walker Strength" number for the OP they wish to raid? That way people don't get caught in suicidal situations and get frustrated.

    I have found some outposts that had lvl 5 normal walkers and lvl 19 armored and tanks that gave 550. I thought 550 ish was the new flat rate but I still come across some lower than 400

    So much for TG amounts being based on walker strength. Its probably some random number. There should DEFINITELY be more TG on the table with level 26 walkers compared to level 19s

    I did a big string of raids and the highest amount on my log was 551 so I am assuming that was the walker level 23. I didn't look right after the raid and some times they fall off my log.

    All level 20 walkers gave me 543 trade goods.
    A mix of level 20s and 25s gave me 551 trade goods.

    In my example above, those were all level 26 walkers and I got 551. So maybe there is a cap? We shall see.

    Agree only upgrade walker Pit for Camp Level

    Do not upgrade walkers & save the TG for the trade shop

    Haha I was surprised the other night, went on a raid with my lvl 11s against lvl5s, thought this should be easy, then found they had lvl 13/14 walkers!

    Well I think TG is still tied to walker strength and/or number but it seems there is a cap that is easily reached once you have upgraded the walkers halfway to max level or have added half the available walkers and it's this cap that needs adjusting.

    I have 6 level 2 walkers and 1 level 9 tank. If anyone visits me let me know how much TG you get.

    So 551 = high level walkers?
    SCBMA
  • SCBMASCBMA Member Posts: 2,193
    @General_Quatre
    Yes. But it's not necessarily all high level. You can get a mix of 26 and 20. In my raids most are upgrading their special walkers first and leaving the regulars at 20.

    Oy.
