this guy came back together with another hornet reaver, and i had to leave that deliciously underpowered spot

please rate proxy radar on prowler
I'd assumed stealth was the go to option, but I'm curious how proxy is
t. plans to cert out prowler, and needs all the help possible to avoid the shortfalls such a UP vehicle has
Just get a marauder harasser. You can chainpull them, bombard from huge distances, and also get them inside bases for CQC farming.
I've not much experience with the HE prowler, but having the marauder - I'd never cert the prowler. You can get to so many more lucrative farm spots with a harasser than you can a tank.
it's dead since 2013, but jesus patch is coming soon
just trust me faggot

>I've not much experience with the HE prowler, but having the marauder - I'd never cert the prowler.
I see what you mean, but I want to get the shiny trim on my Prowler.
I've already done HEAT, AP and tank kills; I was thinking about doing HE and picking pubbies up (tfw no dedicated gunner) to finish driver assists.
>You can get to so many more lucrative farm spots with a harasser than you can a tank.
t. ~8k kills with solo Marauder and Canister
>Buzz is coming back soon
really? boy he must miss the attention
So is now a good time to get back in? I have like 600+ hours invested and just kind of fell off the radar.
Would be fun to jump back in and find a small group to play with again.
wait few months anon, like I said major changes coming, game could experience some kind of
probably short termrevival
overpowered as fuck
this shows in pretty much any statistic besides those related to air
the only things lowering its KDR to a point where you can say that it's "only" 125% that of titan AP and FPC are hornets, tankbusters and C4 fairies, and hornets and tankbusters are comparatively rare. by using radar you're shaving off about half your deaths
that is, assuming you don't charge in and try to 1v4 vannies like a retard, etc.
stealth is great because it allows you to sneeki breeki and get those rear shots in easily, but radar means you'll stay alive much longer. which one to choose depends on how you want to play it.
if you consistently have a competent gunner, you'll only get minimal benefit from radar, in that case i suggest using stealth. if you mostly play solo, definitely use radar.
>outnumbered and ganked
A hate tell for
dying?Well, that's new.
I can't wait for buzz to come back to emerald so that all the liberals who attack him will stop attacking me in his absence. Liberals have nothing to live for with leaders to defile and back stab.
Last night, I dreamed I was rolling around my old school campus in a lightning C75 viper with thermals, farming my old schoolmates.
I was having good fun until some douche in a solo harasser on top of an administration building started plinking me with his enforcer and out-DPS'd me.
I rolled around a corner right as I started burning and as I was repairing I realized I was only wearing underwear and got embarrassed and woke up.
So I guess the moral of the story is that I encourage you all to play ps2 right before sleeping every night.
I get PS2 dreams fairly often, always whacky shit. Guess that's what playing an average of five hours a day over three years does to you.
PS2 nightmares are the worst
Nothing sucks like waking up drenched in sweat, still hearing the sound of pre-nerf PPA being spammed. Glowcrabs are equally bad.
I had a dream once where I was walking through town and someone threw a plasma grenade at me, it got stuck to my back and I couldn't get it off.
It didn't blow up but I was running around trying to get help and nobody would help me.
I know what a plasma grenade from PS1 is you dumb shit, I'm asking what the fuck is a fannie
>tfw the prowler is the manlet of MBTs
U N D E R P O W E R E D
just means it's harder to hit and has a smaller visual representation on your screen at distance.
The vannie for example is a considerably easier target from above. *AHEM* tankbuster *AHEM*
Retards don't realize that this was literally the only possible design for the prowler. Anything else and it would look too much like either a vanguard or magrider, or it would look too vastly different for a mbt.
I actually do wish I could at least get an inside view in a passenger seat of say a sunderer or a galaxy.
Even if it's just my character strapped in and staring at the other passengers, but ideally you'd have like computer screens showing a video feed of the outside, and cool shit like that, and could turn your head or even move around in the case of a galaxy.
Yes. What do you think "for immersion" means?
Why add leaves to trees or puddles of water on the ground if all you do is glance at them for half a second as you drive past into the next clusterfuck base killzone?
Oh of course, DBG are all about the little details, i'm sure they'll get right on it for you.
No, this very community shouted down wanting entering/exiting animations, live with your fucking decisions you shitheads.
that feel when single handedly cleared out a biolab SCU with 3 NC MAX's in it, plus infantry
It's the only time I've ever felt like 4 flash grenades weren't an ebin gimmick at best, and absolute waste of fucking space at worst. flash fuse timer buff when
You seem to have confused "imagine how cool this would be" with "I want them to put this in the game now, and am going to write to the devs to try to convince them to do it instead of leadership tools and ants/construction right now"
I like immersive features and I like the idea of more of them in PS2, but I'd be right there with the naysayers shouting down anyone who tried to seriously get little super unimportant details like that into the game at this point in time.
>flash fuse timer buff when
It's on PTS and slated for the next big update. Check this upcoming patch notes dawg. Going down to 1.5s timer I think? Half the current, or somesuch.
>use camo that makes me stand out along with auraxium armor
>no difference in amount of bullets sent my way
Come on, I'm glowing in the fucking dark here. I'm starting to think the majority of people are playing at the minimum FOV.
>Bright yellow camo
>Glowing pink gun
>Nobody pays any extra attention
It's very strange, there's an obvious connection with regards to visibility and dark colors, making you less obvious and thus less shot at but there doesn't seem to be a clear opposite to that, being any brighter than default doesn't appear to make you any easier to see.

>taunting before the kill

this guy got really salty, the second time he must have dropped from an air taxi or something, because he didn't appear on the radar until really close
the prowler is pretty shit desu
Like the seasoned predator it is, the mountain prowler lies waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike its prey.
When they are distracted by another tank, the prowler decides to attack.
The crabriders won't know what hit them.
>easy to cert
Harasser. First, buy the cheap 550 cert marauder for it.
With that, you can start solo farming infantry from amazing angles due to the harasser's huge mobility and positioning advantages.
Get thermals for it ASAP, and follow shortly after with the cheap stealth ranks, fire suppression, and extra ammo for it up until the cert costs start getting stupid.
After a while of farming massive certs with that, you can move up to the gatekeeper and vulcan for fun anti-vehicle times. I'd hold off on the gatekeeper upgrades beyond the initial purchase until the nerfs go through and we see where it ends up, but for right now even the basic purchase gets you unparalleled long range AV *and* AI ability. Perch that shit on a mountain top at render distance from a vehicle battle and plink enemies for safe, easy certs. Not bad at any distance with a decent gunner, though.
The vulcan you might want to get the final, most expensive level of stealth and/or full composite armor before fucking with too much, as well as a competent gunner. It also takes a bit of experience to approach from the correct angles and learn how to sneak into the best up close positions to start hammering assholes with it without becoming paste. When you do it right though, it is satisfying as hell to melt armor with, and very effective.
Basically, the gatekeeper for all-purpose, solo or duo anti-armor and some minor anti-infantry, and the marauder for extreme effectiveness solo or duo anti-infantry, both cheap at 550 certs base purchase for each.
vehicles aren't the best for new players because using them well requires map knowledge, game knowledge, and other shit
all vehicles are the same except for esf and mbt
You can't go wrong with a harasser though, since it's so cheap nanites-wise, you can pull them infinitely even if you die right of the vehicle spawner every time.
He did ask for easy to cert vehicles, and the cheaper options for TR harassers yield immediate results.
>all vehicles are the same except for esf and mbt
Wrong. Harassers are a world apart due to the empire specific weapons.
You will not get anywhere near the same experience with a canister or a fucking PPA on a harasser as you would a marauder, and a saron and enforcer could scarcely be any more different from each other, despite being supposed equivalents.
>"Flash kobalt is shit and irrelevant"
They really need to do something about the tankbuster.
I feel like lowering the pellet count from 2 to 1 is a good start, but because of the superior damage type vs resists, it's still leaps and bounds better than the other two lib nose guns.
Wait a minute, that's an old dev screenshot, right? I remember they took photos of the screen to get around some sort of pre-beta law or w/e against uploading actual screenshots.
So why the fuck do they have pictures of Higby and his wife saved on the desktop from Facebook?
despite what it looks like, it's actually really underpowered and shit. it just performs so well because its users are
just better players :^)
Why would Higby save his own facebook photos?
In that 31 second webm, you got shot at twice, by heavies, and killed 2 pieces of armor that did not think to shoot at the anchored prowler that is 20m from their base.
Prowler OP :^)
w-what are they doing behind that fan?? is it 'adult situations'?
>Prowler OP :^)
It's actually UP, both Margider and Vanguard need to be nerfed.
How many people could he have killed if he had been in a Vanguard or Magrider? What if he missed one shot, how would that have affected the kill count?
Fuck off Gus, nobody likes you either.
Just look at that AKPU/AKPH, clearly the Vannie is OP. Nerf when?
I gun for a friend in his Vanguard fairly often. Our go-to loadout is AP/Enforcer and he affectionately calls the Enforcer the "kill-stealer gun".
How much do you think that sort of thing affects the performance of the cannons that only get 1 shot? If you think about it, the fact that the Prowler gets 2 shots, even if they're weaker, means that it has more opportunities to collect a kill on things they attack.
>Vanguard and Magrider have almost identical KDR, KPH, VKPH

My dogs are actually with my aunt and uncle right now. They went up to have a day outside on the family land.
I stayed up all night playing video games and now I'm playing a VN about a cyclops girl in my underwear in an empty house. I just ate some pringles brand Stix™, they're pretty good.

>what should i get for prowler
AP, anchor, racer, radar if solo, stealth if with a decent gunner
>is it important to have a gunner
Not, really, but it is mandatory for proper HLVP.
Pubbies are extremely unreliable when it comes to AV, but they do make a good anti-fairy system.
Oh just quit whining
As you can clearly see in any of Swaggers' recent webms, the Prowler is indeed a piece of shit.
your cert order should look something like this
>ammo 3, zoom 2 (for HEAT)
now you save up for the big purchase
>ammo 4, zoom 2/3 (for AP)
>a few more ranks of ammo
>radar 3, racer 2
>reload speed up to 3 or 4

So, stats show Prowler performing 10-20% better than the other MBTs. Guess what, that's exactly how the Banshee was doing until SOE nerfed it so badly that it gets 50% less kills despite being pulled just as much.
would not mind that tbqh
tired of getting sniped three hexes away when I'm trying to position my magrider
>So, stats show Prowler performing 10-20% better than the other MBTs.
25-60% on relevant stats
>Guess what, that's exactly how the Banshee was doing until SOE nerfed it
>so badly that it gets 50% less kills despite being pulled just as much.
also lol nope
Those germans are trying to get away from each other, just like the sand niggers invading their whole continent IRL. They try to escape the cancer, but bring it with them, because they are it.
>yfw you realize that CLAB has been doing the thing TR did with the whining but no one has called them out on it
I have. What a bunch of whining hypocrites. You can see their squad chat in some webms/screenshots. It's almost always someone moaning about Prowlers, Betelgeuse, Russians, bolt shitters, lag and everything. This is also what an ex-member told me. Whining, making excuses why they got outplayed and talking shit about other players.
>It's almost always someone moaning about Prowlers, Betelgeuse, Russians, bolt shitters, lag and everything
If you get killed by actual cheaters and exploiters, does that count as getting outplayed?
If you get killed by people playing LMB simulator and against whom you can't fight back, does that count as getting outplayed?
The answer to that is simple, and it is no. "Outplayed" implies that the playing field is even, or that you were initially at a disadvantage.
Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.
I've been playing an NC medic off and on for a while.
Based on the charts some anon posted I grabbed the Carnage AR and I like it.
What kinds of attachments would you recommend for it?
Also, are revive grenades worth the 200-cert cost?
>"Are you good?Use GBC"
Discard LPK. It's a retarded metric.
This is what I want most. Red orchestra 2 gave nice feels like this. Sitting in your tank or sdkfz 251, looking at the other mans. It didn't offer any utility, but it gave such feels. Even occasionally someone would get shot by an AT rifle, or tank crew might get hit by shells, and all the other mans would be afraid. It'd be nice if planetside gave this. It'd certainly help my immersion.
I'd leave PS2 & go back to RO2/RS if my local servers weren't so dead / what remains of the playerbase decided to get away from the casualmode servers, and went back to manmode ones like they used to. I miss that game.
>GBC has much better stats than the mercenary
>"pfft you aren't vonic!"
I know I'm a shitter, anon. My point is to show that the GBC is the easiest/noob-friendly NC carbine in the game.
>My point is to show that the GBC is the easiest/noob-friendly NC carbine in the game.
Sure thing pal, just like

Your point is...?
The thing is accurate, sure, that's why your accuracy is so much better. But your KDR with it is comparable, because your self-admitted lack of skill prevents you from using it to its full potential.
Burst guns shine especially when in the hands of competent players, and most new/bad players find them very hard to use, because they aren't familiar with it and rely on full auto spam too much. That's why the chart guy said burst guns are suggested if you are good.
What is the absolute worst gun across all factions that isn't something stupid like the snowball gun.
I'm going to make a new character and exclusively use it, whatever it is.
The way I think, by the time I pass through that I'll have been tempered in the fires of frustration and rage to come out as a competent player.
>"I'm too retarded to counter properly, so... here's an assposting!"
This is starting to get cringeworthy. Time to settle down the butthurt, anon...and reveal me your true feelings.
C'mon, let's mark an encounter ingame.
I'll give you a hug.
>Nothing has been said, other than "hurr it's gus so he is retarded, lol"
It has been months since you've been trying to piss me off by assposting 24/7, and even implying things that never happened. It's time to stop trying.
C'mon, get ingame so I can give you a hug.
Inquisitor. It's basically a 750/143 you're spam clicking (i.e. 300-400 RPM), with shit accuracy, shit velocity and only 30 rounds.
If you're looking for a primary, then probably the Ursa or A-tross.
what about that "dps powerhouse" assault rifle the VS have and by dps powerhouse i mean worst primary dps in the game. the inquisitor wasn't THAT BAD, at least in my experience. it's a good novelty weapon for humiliation kills
Remember when it had 2X burst on PTS but VS cried about how it would be GAME BREAKINGLY OP and then went on how the PTS Spiker killing MAXes in like 2 charged shots was fine and "finally a usable pistol for vs"?
How long ago was all this?
I'd have thought they'd alter it by now, if it was awhile back. I never see anyone using the thing. Most either stick with the default or go NS revolver. A few odd ones go emperor - but no-one goes inquisitor or AMP. No-one but the most die-hard of pistol autists.
Fair enough. I don't think anyone would ever willingly use it, though, and unless you're really good at landing moving headshots with a 6x+ scope while standing still charging your shot and BEING shot at, you'll still lose to people using 'bad' guns like the Ursa (as a VS example, insert TR or NC gun here).
We talking infantry only or not? I'd say a fair few of the valks weapons are strong contenders. The wireguided "takes 300 hits to kill a sundy" rocket, the "like a vulcan but 100x more shit" chaingun, the "these look like they can kill things but they just look cool" pelter rockets. Can't forget the "scarcely better than the wyvernat AI" CAS-14.
It's all shit. SHIT.
I almost never see anyone using the Phaseshift or TRAP, but conglomos seem to love their Railjack even though personally I found it horrible. The delay makes uncloak-shoot-recloak-move dance impossible.
The problem is that
the vast majority of snipers are bolt shits, either CoD kiddies or statpadding tryhards. Nobody (besides TR and VS newbs) seems to use semi snipers.
The Phaseshift is actually a very decent semi sniper, with a small mag but infinite ammo. I love the Gauss SPR (Spectre/99SV equivalent), and I barely ever need to fire off more than four shots before cloaking and reloading; however, I run out of ammo fairly often while using it. That (for fairly obvious reasons) never happens when using the Phaseshift, and I had it overheat maybe 10 times during all of the aurax.
Think of the Phaseshift as a semi-auto with heat mechanic and a OHK gimmick, not as a shitty bolter that can also be used as semi.
Wyvren is literally better ai than the dogshit that is the CAS. They could buff the Valk guns a long way simply by giving them worthwhile thermals, 50M in an aircraft is fucking pitiful.
Well yeah, I dont even fly but 50M is nothing in an aircraft. If anything they should just make that Cold Blooded implant people cried about back in the day.
They could also make Thermals work like HSNV for guns on Esamir so everything gets illuminated so its easier to pick people out but not YELLOW BLOBS ON NAVY BLUE BACKGROUND like it is now.
All three of those shots landed, the low bitrate kind of blends the hitmarker into the background.
Used the buffed (moving COF) SAW today, got 120 kills on it.
Pretty good, there wasn't a time where I felt like I had the wrong weapon for the situation, and neither did I ever feel like I didn't have enough DPS for the situation.
I rate it 8/10 only downside is the reload speed. GODSAW seem like it would be perfect with the lower mag size and faster reload.
NC weapons are literally the best in the game but for the 15 minutes I play tested them I was plagued by lemming platoons and suicide leaders. 40 man platoon of an entire air force meets and entire VS airforce and they order everyone to fly through the VS and crash into the warp gate.
I'm lmaoing at shitTRs lives who have to use the archer instead of the lancer.
>shitTR projecting his ugly aesthetics
>still has hands visible in the crop
>holding a medkit and not a proper knife or gun or knifegun
>helmet looks like higyb's asshole and blacker than t-ray's taint

>still has hands visible in the crop
It's irrelevant to the looks of the armor.
>holding a medkit and not a proper knife or gun or knifegun
Medkit was held in the legendary TR HA with black camo picture that was posted here.
>helmet looks like higyb's asshole and blacker than t-ray's taint
>no lancer AE
Now that's ironic because the gold-trimmed nigger shit is a prime example of t-ray's taint and it also doesn't fit the color scheme of the rest of armor.
Look at the damage. Aircraft will always be the best.
I bought a laser sight for hv 45 but I'm wondering if this was a mistake. Is forward grip better and then you just ads adad all the time and enjoy an increased accuracy in medium distance?
>tfw you have a really good session even though it's 4 AM and most of the farms are gone and get 20+ IVI KDR and sort of feel like throwing up for some reason but don't even care
goodnight plantmens :)
>Discard LPK. It's a retarded metric.
Exactly. I was fighting only maxes and got to 43% accuracy with 15 LPK, but since it's a retarded metric I'm probably the best player in the world!!!!

Wow you are a slow one anon. We literally invented TR UP posting (with help of our connery brothers and rdord) to save /ps2g/ from the real whiny shiTRs. It's not really a secret.
>It's almost always someone moaning about Prowlers, Betelgeuse, Russians, bolt shitters, lag and everything.
That's really not a secret either :3 I don't whine about good players that can beat me though, only about cancer.
>We literally invented TR UP posting
You're not ex 1.5 KD NOGF pros fuck off
>being this fucking bad
learn to aim, shitdick. SAW is fine. Agree it shouldn't be starter, it's unforgiving to learn to use (GD-22S or EM1/EM6 would be good instead) but it's a 10/10 weapon.
>unforgiving to learn to use
That's like saying that a traditional razor is unforgiving to learn to use even though it's actually primitive and inferior in comparison to better razors. The fact that someone has gotten gud at it doesn't make it good.

But it literally isn't! A competent barber with a straight razor will give you a much better shave than he would with a safety razor, disposable razor, or God forbid, one of those electric pieces of shit.
It's just that they're harder to use.
>feel like a completely average player

Does the surger chassis make a noticeable difference for weapon stability in the flash?
I know it supposedly does in the harasser, but I dunno about the flash. ADS'ing while on anything but a flat road or Esamir is such a pain in the ass, that I've taken to shooting from third person.

Does triage actually net any decent level of exp? I get that the healing it does it token, but the exp itself - is it shit too? Was thinking of getting it so I could go afk in a deployed sundy.
triage is actually so fucking bad as to be unbelievable. It's the last thing anyone should put any certs into.
I mean, literally, you've got every weapon, every attachment, every other thing on every class maxed, THEN put some certs into triage if you really feel you must.
Does it even give any XP?
I thought it gave standard heal exp. Yeah, it does look fucking shit for actual effect though. The only reason I'd bother is for myself. Beyond personal cert gain, it's a dumbass move to cert into.
Like, you've got 50% of players running medkits, actual medics healing the rest, and most of the time there's a biolab passive heal thing going on for those that slip through the cracks. 0.5% a second on health alone is fucking nothing. Even maxed out, it's only 2.5% or something. Awful.
A bad medic because I don't have triage maxed? Get the fuck out son, I'm a great medic.
If you live in a world where the measure of a good medic is the level of their triage then I don't think it's a world I want to visit.
I like this shitters with alts named "thisisnot blah blah blah". Nobody gives a shit who you think you are. Same for all the "JustHereForXYZ". Nobody cares. It just tells everyone your from Reddit. Which isn't something to brag about.

Hey /ps2g/ I heard there was a big update recently. How are the changes?
Is there something the community is looking forward to then? I haven't played in 2 years or so.
We are looking forward to Tower/Biolab only continent and bans for all bolt shitter/A2G mains ;)
But seriously, ANT's and resource/building system are going to be introduced soon.
Players will be able to construct bunkers, turrets, walls etc.

That's 15 years of experience on the internet dealing with spergs and a bunch of retards thinking I'm BR because I use a latin IGN.
So, what I can say?I'm your typical "one-man army asshole", I guess.
...wait. I should've updated that. It's not 15 anymore; but 16.
Pretty soon'ish, tho. @ 12th January, to be more exact. It'll be my birthday. ;3
>"b-but you said it!"
Your innocence is cute.
now that's more like it
after a few days of pain and suffering, i can confidently say that the prowler is, in fact, horribly underpowered, and needs all the buffs it can get.
What program are you using for webums swag?
I found that you can swap the FFmpeg in WebM for Retards with a newest one and it makes better webms with a working Multi-threading.
a while back some anon posted a .bat script that just calls ffmpeg with some arguments, it's basically webm for retards without all the fluff
i modified it so it sets resolution and bitrate automatically based on the video file's length
it's pretty nice because you have to type literally three things and then you're done (there's also another one that takes more time but can do more stuff)
also yes, when i was still using webm for retards they'd be ugly and multithreading didn't work (which is why i started using this script in the first place)
then i found out that for whatever reason the version of ffmpeg it comes/came with is borked
If you damage someone without killing them they can chug a medkit instantly after. That's also why shitTRs whining about photon pod alpha damage are wrong, if it doesn't kill it's not an advantage.
Flares are good. You just wait for them to actually launch the rocket before you pop them.
I really do think v1 is a better way of improving your HTPM score over v6
Daily reminder that High Level Vehicle Play (HLVP) is still the highest tier of gameplay within PS2.
Medic is by far the best class. It has enough crutches to be somewhat powerful like the heavy assault is, but it's not op enough to be considered as outright cheese like the HAs are.
Let's look at the classes.
Inf: shit and cheese at the same time
Engi: shit and cuck
HA: dishonorabru crutch
Max: dishonorabru crutch
Medic: powerful but not enough to be a crutch

I don't like it because I have to babysit my teammates too much
I don't want to be crouched behind cover and pointing my medigun at teammates who keep running in and getting shot, I want to actually fight
what a whiny VS faggot, maggies are unkillable at range 1v1, they were much worse at launch, and they are the only tank capable of getting into harrasser spots and raining death.
If you are having trouble as a cum guzzling vs tanker, the problem is not the tanks, its you.
My problem with the gatekeeper is just how incredibly versatile it is. It does EVERYTHING at all ranges.
It kills infantry.
It kills maxes.
It kills vehicles.
It kills air.
It can reliably shoot down phoenix missiles.
All of the above while being attached either to something which is cheap agile and fast or relatively tanky.
Individually in any of these cases is usually isn't OP as such but it is certainly at least average and often better. That is my problem with the gatekeeper.
Have you tried flying a valk through TR owned airspace recently? Sure the valk isn't the greatest thing around but you legitimately cannot field them against the TR any more.
>It kills maxes.
nod really. Takes multiple magazines usually. It's nowhere near as good as the vulcan/marauder at that. It's pretty mediocre at AI too, it's just that it's super accurate, so you can get consistent (low) damage on people a hex away. Bullshit at range, yes, but it's not particularly good up close. It isn't that good against air either. Usually I'd prefer a vulcan for that. The number of airshitters who've hovered 10m above the ground 20metres away from me is too many. Close range AV is far better there.
It is pretty OP against vehicles though. Tiny bit weaker than a vulcan, with all the range in the world.
so, i'm trying to fix my webm thing
does this look any decent, considering it's almost a minute long?
>inb4 shitties get mad because it's a webm of literally fucking nothing
that's not the point
because i'm still in poverty mode
i do have ~1k certs i kinda forgot about
>head of an armor group
>repair bus and a bunch of engis healing me
>somehow managing to not die while under heavy fire, for liek 30 seconds
>le random disconnect
prowler is shit, don't bother
I finally did it, i've made a funny webum :3
I wonder where did he come from, there was no mossie or anything flying by.

My life for a "Hello!" command.
Have you ever thought how harden and emotionally dead a typical soldier on auraxis is?
They have experience death a million times over and they always come back. This is like the essence of purgatory. Faggots like master chief or some other popular bald space marine has nothing on a soldier from planetside.

I wish I'd had Shadowplay up.
so i started using the terrain tank and you guys said to use anchored mode
but i keep getting killed by c4
this thing seems pretty shitty to me, is there even a way to get it to work?
basically you shouldn't be anchoring unless you're on a hill far away or something
anchoring in the middle of a fight or around enemies is dumb
don't anchor near places where people can drop on top of you
switch to third person constantly
this is pretty good advice, but it will still only at best only delay you getting c4'ed by a bit. also remember to frequently un-anchor and move about whil keeping lookout around you.
being an infiltrator and deploying a dildo as you anchor up helps as it's better than the proxy radar, and throwing out a spitfire turret behind you can also help. but in the end you're still just delaying the inevitable. that buttmad shitter with drifters who jumps out of a stealth esf at max flight level will inevitably c4 you, or some connection quality: gus will just pop out of the ground from who the fuck knows where. just learn to live with it and pull a new tank when it happens
