Since we're having AGR chat, how long before it becomes common knowledge that one C4 will kill an AGR outright? I don't know if the patch changed this, but I've never had an AGR killed, while I one-shot every one I see with a quick c4 lob.

That is news to me. I have to test that out but if its true it'll be great to destroy someone's hard earned Wall-E with the quickness.

It also only takes two emp grenades to destroy one.

I'm starting to love emp grenades more than black hats. Sure you can't take care of airborne streaks or steal equipment, but clearing a whole building of equipment with one grenade is pretty nice. Last night two of us kept getting 200 points a grenade because of some really dumb snipers that kept going back to that 2-story in the middle of standoff.

Just did it again today right after a guy called in a Wall-E. Still a one-hit kill, still worth some rage mics.

Did you know the War Machine doesn't provide impact kills if you're shooting inside the minimum safe distance? I didnt! Neither did the frantically backpedalling idiot who pegged me four or five times with nerf nades before I knifed him!

It works. Also circling around it and firing shotgun slugs as fast as you can is both fun and a super saiyan level 6 rage inducing event. Every time I do it, I just imagine that poor guys hair exploding in fire as he shouts some primal word that resonates across continents. His poor precious gay robot.

This is assuming the person controlling the AGR isn't smart enough to simply just shoot a rocket at the ground?

Pretty much this. Black Hats are more flexible, but the EMPenadas are faster, have a greater range, provide lots of assist points for hitting both people and devices, and are capable of taking out whole groups of stuff. Pretty much the only real advantages PDAs have are their interactions with care boxes and airborne killstreaks.

'Course I threw 2 of each on an Tactician Engineer class in Elite last night.

Its like a mini version of hardline. The range makes it easy to get the 50+ assists.

Plus the EMP nades make you feel badass when you take out a low flying killstreak with them. Suck it dragonfire.

I don't really care about the lag when its not giving anyone a huge advantage, but when a guy is throwing up VSATs and Lodestars, I'm not staying for that. I'm just giving the guy free kills at that point.

Couple things:

1)When playing zombies, a friend of mine completed the tower of bable achievement. We later did it together (for me) but nothing happened, it seems as if everything was already 'done' since he completed it before. Anyone ever encounter that?

2) I'm awesome and had a twin tower emblem, I find out today that I am perma-banned from emblem editor. No warning no nuthin! Also, my calling card wont stay when I choose one. What kind crappola is this!

It is pretty awesome. EMP grenades have a fair range on top of going through walls. I have yet to survive taking out a dragonfire with one, but I take them down with me.

Actually the only disadvantage the PDA has is that you need to pair it with Engineer in order to bring out its full potential.
And technically speaking the black hat has a longer range, it just drops to poo poo when there is any type of wall in the way!

Can you blackhat someone who is heavily reliant on a target finder?

didn't think so.

EMP everyone when a VSAT is up as well.

No, but I can hack his bouncing Betty, then run away giggling while he gets killed by it.

Or deal with it the same way I deal with everything in this game, toss C4 their way.

Yeah I started rolling with EMPs at the reccomendation of this thread, and you an easily get 250 pts on one toss. I run low kill streaks so it's far more useful to me than Blackhats.


I stopped trying out all the other LMGs and went back to my LSAT last night, and holy poo poo is it good. If only the reload time wasn't so long, 90% of the time I die during the reload.

Ask me about transforming into a semi and trucking over defenses.

I have my ideas of what to buy with my first prestige token, but is there some obvious, no-brainer you should unlock?

It seems to me that the FAL would be good to keep unlocked (as I prefer it over the other ARs), but I'm thinking it may be a bit faster to level with new guns for more XP.

You unlock the FAL in like a couple of hours of games from a fresh prestige. Ghost is great to have early on. Ghost, AN-94, XM8, Skorpion, C4, Scavenger, all are good unlocks.

Yeah, as much as I like the FAL it isn't worth spending a token on. Black Hats are earning my first prestige token because gently caress not having those.
