What kind of gear, in your opinion, should Sherpas receive from Battlestate Games regularly to perform their duties? Weapons, ammunition, medical supplies, maps? Your suggestions are welcome in this topic!

  • A good weapon
  • Good armor, so he can survive most threats and stay alive to teach his students
  • Medkits; good kits (IFAK or Salewa) again so he can stay alive
  • Good ammunition, so he can deal with any threat and protect his charge

Basically give them the tools they need to do their job :)

Maybe a signature weapon of some sorts? Definitely shouldn't be better or worse than another weapon of its kind that are available to everyone else.

So nice thought overall probably we all are in the same category when we think about some extra gear for a Sherpa, but to make it not overly powerfull I think it shoud stay arround this:

2-3x Bodyarmour with lvl 4 protection, maybe even with arm part protection.

2-3x Helmets like Kiver maybe with faceshields.

2x extra Gun probably MP5/PP19 or Kedr depending on the choosen faction.

1x AK74N or an M4A1 again depending on the choosen faction. Probably could mix the guns to semi-auto guns so VEPR 136 and ADAR.

Depending on the weapons he gets 2 extra Magazines per Gun + needed ammo to fill them.

Probably a few extra armband to show HE is the Sherpa that this freshling will stick to for easier spotting. But make this really visible the Armbands work a bit meeeeh if you take the wrong coloured one.

Ofcourse some extra meds, most likely IFAK´s due to the fact if you give them Salewas people would turn them in for the first Therapist Mission. So like 5x IFAK, Bandages, Splints, Morphine maybe instead of Painkillers.

To top this thing up a few grenades also maybe just 2-5 something arround this is a huuge bonus I do believe, a mix of them so like 2 RGD-1, 2x  Zaryas and a smokegrenade.

And for the guns he gets be able to put a reddot or scope on it, so like some Holosights or the P1X42+ like Tacical Tula 10k and on the hand of the M4A1 take the carryhandle of and the ironsights infront so it would not block the reddot sight picture.

 

So overall just my thought where I would think this is not too powerfull or so for a fresh wipe and still be able to help people out.

A key thing should be a unique (and can't be looted) arm ban. Just like the old Reddit Rescue Squad that DayZ had, where players would wear a white arm band when rescuing/helping someone.

In terms of gear...that's a slippery slope honestly. You can't exactly just hand out free gear as this could be abused in some sort of way.

I like this idea. Sherpas know what they are doing, obviously, and how to get gear. Why should they receive free loot that gives an advantage over other players? Do they have training quotas or something? If not, maybe I will become a Sherpa just to get free gear to use solo.

I think Sherpa's mission is to help novice players, they don't need too good equipment, they can give drugs to new players who are injured.

Had never considered Sherpa getting free gear. Figured they'd just have to earn it.  Interesting concept.

i would say 1 fully geared set once a week or something like that ! Im not a sherpa yet, but im already inviting new players from the discord to join me in raids... you know just like me that running a 4-5 man squad is pretty tough! it would be pretty awesome to get some gear for helping them!

 

Also, as im streaming while playing with them, i would really enjoy being able to give some in game items ! would be awesome if BSG would give us something valuable sometimes to giveaway to our community! New players would definitaly appreciate that!

Honestly It should be decent gear and ONLY to be used when helping other players. The gears should't be special than other players in a way, but it should atleast be able to help new players in a way where it would also be effective.

None, a Sherpa should be self sufficient. i've been doing this job unofficialy for 2 years without recompense. Giving items only gives people a financial incentive  to sign up for the program. people should do it because they with to help newbies not for compensation.

May i suggest that you start with training individuals and when you become more accustomed to teaching then move on to larger groups,

I find that teaching basic communication skills to an individual before introducing them to a group enviroment greatly enchances everyones chances of success.

I can see why they wish to offer gear, being a Sherpa is hard work and they would be earning it. I think that the more important point is that if they cannot afford their gear and are needing handouts then they are probably not in the best position to teach.

as someone with 2 years unofficial experience I would prefer some kind of Token or code i could give to a Newbie that they could  say take to Prapor and get a decent little kit for themselves. Maybe some level 3 armour and a moderately modded gun to use. I dont suggest this because i am cheap and cannot give them any gear they like. But i think it would make gearing up for raid a much more pleasant experience, Having to gather and organise gear for myself and multiple newbies takes time in inventory while people are being bored and then i have to take the risk of handing it out inside raid, this takes time and people push extracts on occasion so me and the newbies will have to run and find a spot somewhere to hand out all the gear. It takes time and is immersion breaking, we have been wiped multiple times while doing this.

Some kind of system that could allow me to just PoP appropriate gear into existance onto a newbie and allow them to come into raid geared would be amazing.........hang on.....dont we already kind of have this system, Scav runs.....

sarcasm aside i would much rather some kind of token i could hand out, So far i have been using my bitcoin collection to cash up my trainees. that way they can keep it for later or use it right then to buy their own gear. Its been working rather well so far.

I like this idea Rohrkrepieerer. It is something individual, like a Badge. You could possibly even have special Sherpa uniforms that you could unlock with certain milestones. I like it, its a little something to say thank you and make volunteers feel special.

I would give sherpas armor tier 5, helmet tier 4. tier 1 bullets, and an ak/m4 with some mods. Some medicals to use, like ifaks, and thats it. they need gear to carry their rookie team, if he dies with 1 bullet, the whole team will loose time and money

No gear, no gun, no armor, nothing. Give them the ability to play offline, but with people. Doesn't make sense i know, offline but with people, but you get what i mean.

Would allow them to stroll around with their group to show them the extracts, good loot spots etc.

Same offline rules apply, no quests , no xp, no keeping gear after.

If someone already mentioned this, forget i said anything :)

Maybe some special armor and a helmet kinda like UN, but exclusive to sherpas, perhaps a green ulach as an example, or say a level 4 kit, there shouldn't be too much loot injected into the game so they shouldn't receive the kit that often, or hell just give them rewards like a bitcoin if they're a good sherpa, maybe there could be a points system where if you did your job well you could get points and redeem them for maybe a weapons case or a "s i c c  case" and make it so it couldn't be taken in raid so they can't put more roubles into the game.

Sorry if this has been mentioned already.

I think sherpas should have their own unique rebel ice picks and paracords locked to their account with the added ability to extract the newbie they're trying to help. This would easen the initial phase where you are acclimatizing to the extremely punishing nature of this game.

What he said.

There is no point in having Sherpas explain the game in online mode.

Implement a proper coop offline PvE experience for the Sherpas so they can take their time and show everything without the risk of getting blown up by enemy squads.

^ this times 10000, all of Pestily's in depth map guides are in offline mode. As it is the most recommended way to teach yourself so why not allow the "professional" teachers use of this tool in a coop environment?

I would like to see some decent weapons maybe M4's, larger backpacks like attack 2's or even Blackjacks would be amazing. Armor wise i would say class 4 or above that way they can survive a couple rounds and have better chance at survival. Although it is possible to help others with minimal gear just having that extra gear as a Sherpa increases chance of survival to continue to help others throughout the entire raid

If you're a Sherpa you should be able to do that with what's in your inventory, with out any problem. The ideas of giving them uniquely skinned items is cool too. But if Sherpas and their pupils are getting free gear, well then so should the rest of us. If a Sherpa is allowed to hookup players with decent gear, why should solo players not receive the same gear or at least value of the gear in ruble

Because people that require Sherpa's are far from even being decent at the game (no offense to anyone).

Most people can easily fend for themselves in this game. Just because people that are bad at the game are getting some additional assistance, shouldn't mean everyone gets free gear because of it.

Do I have to request sherpa assistance and free gear or are my stats showing how bad I am enough. Now I'm not against helping new players at all, the game needs just a bit of that that doesn't require a seasoned player to volunteer their time. BUT, what about those that want to try to get better as solo play but still suck, can they get some free stuff too. And to be clear and fair I'm not asking cause I want(I sold that care package) I've got plenty, I normally just rock a vepr 136 but I have 5 VSS and a few ak-103 and 74 just laying around waiting to be used(all modded ) and I'm well on my way to level 21. But what about the guys who don't like playing in a group(for whatever reason, lets assume they get nervous and are socially awkward) do these level 1-10 brand new players not deserve a tinny little bit of assistance too?
