SITREP Radio is a two-man affair for Episode 165 as Rob is off in Corfu for his honeymoon. Mike and Luke take the opportunity to have a good chat about Skill Builds, Loot and the wider issue of RNG, oh and they pretty much compare everything back to the Dark Hours raid.

There is also news this week of another PTS. That’s right, another one. Title Update 5 is apparently only just around the corner (Yep, we know – Title Update 4 only came out last week!) and seeing as the guys over at Massive have completely re-worked how Skills and Skill Power work and scale, they want us to test it out thoroughly before it goes live. There is no exact date for when this new iteration of the PTS will be up and running, other than it will definitely be one day next week – so keep an eye out for an update being pushed to your PTS clients.

As is now tradition the lads end the show with questions from their Discord server and the Twitterverse.

As mentioned in the show, the Bullets and Beer Discord link is and our Patreon link is

I've been a gamer ever since I can remember. I started with a Commodore64, then Amiga1200, and various PCs. Consoles I've owned include SNES, Wii, GameCube, Xbox 360 and every version of PlayStation to date. My most played games are Team Fortress Classic, Championship Manager, early COD titles (don't mention Black Ops or MW3!) as well as almost all of the Gran Turismo and GTA series'.
