At least with bullet weapons the payoff is that you deal damage as a bunch of small hits which makes evasion easier. This basically has all the strengths of the spinfusor AND the strengths of bullets with none of the weaknesses.
God damn that is worse than the demoman's sticky launcher.
I haven't been really against anyone using it, but I'm glad, I'd get frustrated if I did. It makes me wonder if Hi Rez do it on purpose, add an OP as hell weapon to the game so everyone flocks to buy it, then nerf it to be in-line with the rest when people have spent money getting it.
the new skins are hideous I can't stand them
i got an idea
>stand cloaked on your flag while placing stickies nearby
>wait for poor sandraker to bump into you
>play suicide bomber.
or! here's an actually useful one:
>place stickies on sides of HoF in case capper has reach.
So they nerfed pathfinder again?
Heavies are quite overpowered; playing arena mode, doombringers just sit in corners and spam chaingun to win, and the pathfinder can't get close enough to take it down due to reduced damage.
Before, they could.
I'm thinking about switching to a class that's a little less underpowered, such as raider or soldier.
I look forward to playing this game, looks fun!
They're definitely going to nerf the jackal real quick.
They'll probably remove mid-air detonation and add a small delay to how quickly they can explode once placed.
I have 810 gold, any advices what perks and/or weapons should I get? Pathfinder's rifle and heavy crossbow for Doombringer are mocking me to buy them, but they are oh so expensive... I've been thinking to get survivalist and bounty hunter perks, what do you guys think about these? Are Doombringer's mines any good?
Can't decide, shield pack for brute or bolt launcher for pathfinder.
..This game isn't fun for me anymore.
If I play technician, i'm either swarmed by enemies or infiltrators with the stealth spinfusor.
If I play offense, it's either as packed as the high street on a saturday, or there's a technician with a thumper inside, making it pretty tricky to get anywhere because ITS A STRAIGHT FUCKING UPGRADE
... I want private servers already, so we can have an FPUK server.
It's a rule I tend to have with multiplayer games.
If there is a facepunch server, go to nothing but that server.
Better content than the first one though.
I have 30000 exp points, should I buy raider's jammer pack once I get 42k, or keep saving exp for the release?
How is Brute?
I kinda want a class with a spinfusor but soldier spinfusor is too expensive.
No one wants to help me? Ok then, I' think I'll get a thumper...
Getting to the enemy base, cloak and then use your jackal/stealth spinfusor to kick everyone's asses
Or turtling in your gen room killing juggerfats, infiltrators and raiders
I was also thinking on getting technician since nobody ever repairs my base turrets
It was supposed to be a threat, because I know how everyone hates the thumper here. But ok.
I'm stupid I know.
Running low on suitable music for montages which isn't totally overused, I searched for a while to even find that and I wasn't totally satisfied with that either. But I'll keep trying to improve :)
I really, REALLY hope they refund everyone's XP on release so we can respec. There are some choices I just want to un-make.
I nominate this for new flag held music.
I wish you could try every weapon in training mode.
I listen to tribes 2 music, cos A: it was awesome and B: it helps me recapture the feeling i used to get when playing t2.
Totally not a straight upgrade. I cannot think of a reason to use the SMG over it in CTF, and maybe even TDM.
Guess who's back in business bitches
I have met plenty of technicians who prefer the SMG over the thumper, even indoors, due to its much higher DPS (the tech's smg is substantially better than the assault rifle) and mid field/outdoors ability that the thumper lacks.
Gentlemen I may have found a use for the knives, you can throw a knife and instantly melee afterwards, might be enough to instakill a heavy if you have close combat, or a medium without.
