    Video (that someone else made) that basically demonstrates how the Jackal is OP as hell.
    I figured it was OP for that very reason. Sad I won't be able to buy it before they nerf it (probably by adding/increasing a minimum wait time before you can detonate).

    Why the hell did they add a weapon that lets you detonate projectiles in mid-air? Half of the entire combat in tribes is based on the idea of timing your shots right to catch the enemies when they're near a surface. If you can just use splash damage every time you fight instead of only when the enemy is near a surface it makes spinfusors, thumpers and crossbows obsolete. No need for blue plates anymore. You can just get it close enough and press butan to hit enemy.

    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.

    How do I make screenshots in this damn game, I got 30 kills and used 2 orbital strikes in one game as Pathfinder, it was awesome. But my screenshot is all black. Sad.
    F12 I believe. Same as the default steam screenshot key.

    They only need to make so it can only be detonated after 2 seconds and only if it's sticked to a surface.

    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.

    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.

    What are your computer's specs? How do you record shit so well?

    On the topic of the video, it was ok, but felt somewhat boring. I think it gets boring and not fast enough pace on the kills where you miss a bunch of shots. Also maybe cut the video closer to the actual kills and remove that travel time between streaks.
    I took what you said into account and tried a new one with Sentinel.
    Better? Worse?

    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?

    but after they bump into you it's easier to react instead of detonating ant just the right moment

    plus it's more fun since you die, too.

    He's explained in one of his WTF videos that he has mild dyspraxia.

    But yeah. He's mediocre at FPS's and seizure-inducingly bad at puzzle games. But hey, at least he admits it.

    He's actually good at fps considering his dyspraxia(there's nothing mild about it), Could be worse, he could have whatever Jesse Cox has Not sure what that even fucking is.

    ..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.

    Falcon (ballistic) kills are boring and I didn't like the music. Also personally seeing people no-scope with the laser rifle rustles my jimmies.

    Better content than the first one though.

    Get a new class if you don't have it. IMO it's better to have different classes than different weapons. I have all classes but Sentinel, and whenever the team needs defending, I go Technician/Doombringer, attacking Soldier/Brute, etc

    Ask yourself, what do you enjoy more
    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 don't know about getting new classes, some are pretty crap without a few armor/weapon upgrades
    I was also thinking on getting technician since nobody ever repairs my base turrets

    I know, but until Sentinel gets another secondary which is more reliable I just use the Falcon. I don't really like the Nova Blaster at all, it's okay v.s. heavies but against everything else, Falcon is just plain better.

    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 :)

    Suspicion of an infiltrator - Shoot it in corner, if he's there, he's revealed and your turrets can eat him up
    Totally not a straight upgrade. I cannot think of a reason to use the SMG over it in CTF, and maybe even TDM.

    Your stressing the fact that you are indoors, in which case certain weapons will obviously have an advantage, such as the MIRV over the motar. If you play indoors, the thumper will outperform the SMG, outside is another story entirely. Playing the weapon to your strength doesn't make it OP.

    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.

    Another thing that's good about the smg is that you can just spray a room that your turrets are in, if you hit an infil they get revealed and nommed
