>What the fuck is this shit?
Dirty Bomb's a free to play FPS and successor to games like Enemy Territory or Brink
>Is it p2w?
No. Merc unlocking system is very similar to LoL's champion unlocks.
There are also loadout cards with different rarity, but those aren't going to make you less shit at the game, and everything above bronze is purely cosmetic
You can easily craft them by trading up the dozens of crap lead cards you get

Don't get me wrong I don't play this game right but I'm not going to work any harder for people playing obj spec but don't play the obj
Why not a white girl?
Is Proxy even white? She might be Asain. Maybe some type o' Mexican.
FUCKING WHHHYYY. I DON'T EVEN OWN THIS NIGGER. He's just such a fucking weeb.
I'll admit she's whiter than I thought, but she's not exactly transparent.
I guess it was just because the rest of the game is pretty grey scale, so she looks darker.
>see enemy team half full of rotation phantoms
>melee kill each of them repeatedly
>banter a little
Friendly reminder to type setclantag /dbg/ in console!!~ :3c
Sparks is a rezer, Bonerz is a healer, so they don't replace each other.
Also I would never buy the loadout, I've always traded up the ones I want, even if it takes more time. This way you also get trade up fodder.
>Also I would never buy the loadout, I've always traded up the ones I want, even if it takes more time. This way you also get trade up fodder.
You what? Funny, because I don't trade up at all and buy bronzes immediately after getting mercs.
I keep getting told that by simply using Sparks I anger people, so it appears that Bonez is the best healer and hes the only merc left thats 30k that I don't have.
I also never get tired of hearing IS YES!
So I could replace Kira in my squad with Bonez and work with another healer? I also can't be doing with just how high the chance is that I might get something completely shit when trading up. I want to save up all my shit cards and just spaff them on Golds for the mercs I like the best.
I got the Sharpshooter pack when I first started playing. Please no bully.

Do you have benchmarks to back that up. Or is that "it feels smooth to me"?
Well we don't know that since the guy didn't mention that.

Why does the game keep putting me on a team full of single digits against a team full of double digit players.
This isn't fucking balanced. Getting steamrolled repeatedly.
I can't win unless I go medic it these teams.
Not even the guy that posted it.
Just an observer of idiots flipping their shit before double checking things.
Some people think and then fell/act
Some people feel/act then think.
You seem to be the kind of person that feels/acts and doesn't think.
I used to be just like you
one simple step later and now I'm having fun in every game
stop caring if you win/lose and try to make cool plays for the dead teammates to watch
I'm a low level shitter and thats more or less what I do most games.
I am a terrible Proxy but theres something about putting mines in stupid places and seeing the kill notifications and giggling to myself means I can't stop doing.
I took a gamble on getting a Proxy gold and got this, think I'll just go back to my Flying Pig and Drilled Bronze. Lost a Kira that I never used, a Phantom that I can't, a Vaseline and a Stoker that I can't used.
Whelp. I always have the best luck.
Is the feelix broken? I got the best card for it and it feels like every shot is off-center or goes into a random direction.
>blaming lag when he plays bad
I played with him last night. Only played Akira. We won, but I was getting upset for the enemy team about how shitty the laser was. Kept wipping out half their team 10 seconds in.
>mfw there taking away all my perfect cobalt loadouts
>mfw there was literally no point in unlocking all the mercs

JUST FUCK MY GAME UP FAMBINO
Xp is calculated when you move on to a new stage of the map or finish the round so your story is full of shit
Low dps, recoils like crazy
its not BAD but the BR and AUG are just better in every way
Ok. I was doing well with it but to be fair this was in the scrub servers and I am almost level 6. People are pretty stupid they play like they've never played an FPS before and are afraid to get shot or something.
by recoil he probably meant spread and it still has low dps
I can only imagine what the hell is going on in smooth's head, instead of just reverting the fire rate nerf that killed the gun he keeps putting all these placebo buffs in place to try to fool reddit
Friendly reminder that these two slavshits are not EU players nor indicative of EU dirty bomb.
>join overwatch about 1 minute in on trainyard
>team is ahead of the objective, going towards enemy spawn
>I guess they started out pretty good, let me put down some mines around the back just in case
>all of a sudden 5 enemies appear, I'm kill
>"disarm the fucking c4"
we still put on a nice defence after that and second objective took them 9 minutes, too bad we got rekt in the end
Dreiss is fun as hell, but you'll likely do better with the other burst rifles. Thankfully 2 of the 3 Dreiss loadouts are great for Arty. The even better news is that both of them are just as effective when you get them in Iron form so you won't have to waste so much money trying to get a Bronze. Hell, D43 is great in Lead because all you need is Unshakeable from the loadout really.
These are the best Arty loadouts. A lot of people will tell you the Dreiss is shit, and while that is somewhat true against players with better aiming than you, it's still a good weapon against a lot of players. You're not always going to be running into all stars. Keep with it if you like, but also try the burst rifles.
IT'S NOT A BALANCED GAME UNTIL I'M ON THE WINNING TEAM -most high level players who call more than one votescramble
Ha i had the worst experience with it and i'm still salty to this day.

He called shuffle every time he died. And at the end he went to spec so we couldn't see his k/d and laugh.
>tfw the other team votescrambles AKA put me on their team
When this game has a full server, when there are medics actually reviving and the opposing team is actually switching mercs to counter defense, when theres no vaseline shitters.
Man its great. I just had two amazing games and it reminded me what it can be. I'm too shit to play Ranked to find out if all the games are like that.
>be the only one on my team pass 10
>other side has 4 +20 and we are down 2
"Can we get 1 player?"
Phantom and Vaseline need to be banned for low levels. There are so many shitters with Vaseline/Phantom/Random Merc and they always do nothing.
>integral part to a healthy team
>scrubs hate and refuse to play him
Being Skyhammer is suffering.
>hes the F2P starter merc that must mean he is shit!
Why do most pistols sound silenced in this game?
the moa is a bolt-action .50 AR upper
Who next /dbg/? I'm between Proxy or Redeye.
Don't have much interest in Bonez, Phoenix, or Thunder, Fletcher doesn't fit my playstyle, Nader and Phantom aren't urgent, and Vaseline seems like an inferior team player despite having good loadouts.
redeye is pretty fun, his loadouts put a pretty big emphasis on being close.
I've been playing Fragger as well and he isn't as effective at helping her the team completely wreck people if they're spread out from one another. Thunder can blind everyone looking at you if you know where to throw. Lie for the construction building I can get a kill or 2 with Fragger or I can use Thunder and just mow everyone down while they panic.
Just started up on the game, almost got enough for 50k characters. Saw that one of them is a sentry builder, and since I'm a fan of being a shitter, I want to get that guy.
How do I bush whack good
before the entire world resets?
you have to protect the turret or use it's dying hitmarkers to detect an enemy. it is basically useless except for the odd triple kill of damaged light mercs running from a decent class. you cant even rotate it.
if you want to be a shitter enraging people buy rhino and follow medics around/hide in corners with your minigun spinning.
>drop that shit down
>now u have 2 guns in the back instead if one
Trainyard last and Underground first attacking are great for this. Notes on sentry placement:
>try and make it a cross-fire, don't stand near your turret if you're using it to engage the same enemy
>even with the perks that boost turret health and reaction time, if the turret is spotted as the target comes into the turret's view, it's a goner

I ended up getting a D83 from a trade up in bronze, I like it so far. Going to save up my leads and stuff to try and get the Battle Rifle.
Also guys like pic related in my servers are funny as fuck they get under people's skin so easy lmfao
This. Stopshit is always onesided stomp for 15 min at least with objective if one side is stacked it ends fast and the lobby is shuffled the next map.
I've noticed the kind of players in stopwatch is very different too
anecdotes are what they are but I've noticed a lot more kawaii spammers, salty ragers, and fletcher pickers in stopwatch than objective
maybe it was lag, maybe it was hacks, but it was definitely bullshit
Stopwatch 'made' ET in the sense that it was the standard for competitive play. Pub servers pretty much never used it. SD is trying to cater to the old comp crowd since they need the diehards to keep DB alive.
this is the ONLY complain I have honestly
league, warthunder, random singleplayer games
Sadly its like what happened in Metal Gear Online 2
>Game has really fun gameplay and mechanics
>infested with faggots who will do anything to win
>almost every match had them
>people hold MGO2 has the best PS3 multiplayer ever
execution mode sucks because too many abilities in this game are completely effortless and have the ability to wipe a significant portion of a team.
for example all a proxy has to do is place a lucky mine and you can lose 3 people, or hell skyhammer and kira can both wipe entire teams easy if the situation is right.
the mercs in this game and their abilities just don't fit with an elimination-style game type.
I've been doing some fun builds in DaS and SotFS to pass the time
3500 hours in TF2, last played ~last April
I still enjoy a casual run through of Terraria every so often. Last I played was with the moon update and I went hardmode. Looking forward to a more relaxing run without the damage multiplier sometime soon.
waitin on overwatch and das3
Friendly reminder that pic related is the game that has truly defined the competitive scene in video gaming, and being good at it is a true sign of being a gifted individual. If you don't like it, you're shit at video games and need to get good.
>yo anon stop playing shit games play CS or dota
>CS is the most realistic game ever
>BRO YOU GOTTA MAKE S PATTERNS WHEN YOU SHOOT
2k4 sucked, tiny midgets sprinting around with broken movement mechanics that made projectile weapons really shitty so everyone just used hitscan. UT3 was just sad. The new UT looks like it's pretty decent so far though.
AK has 1st shot inaccuracy? A lot of people think its the best gun in the game but its actually a huge pile of shit that people refuse to throw away for the only 300$ more expensive 100% superior in all fields SG553
yeah there was one time in a 5v5 and explodydendron skyhammer killed the entire enemy team with one airstrike
but I still like it
I think if there were a drafting element to it, similar to how Dota 2 does captains mode drafting, the mode could be more interesting
wish there were more levels for it though
actually I wish there were more levels in general. Fun games in bridge almost never happen, and even though I like dome people leave whenever it wins the vote, so in essence there are only 6 levels in the game, since the other two are unplayable.
I used to play planetside 2 and apbr, but I don't play them much any more. I also like JRPGs.
But I'm not OK with it either. CSGO is the worst installment in the CS franchise and it's funny how GObabbies don't know how their game is so casualized compared to the previous titles.
1st shot accuracy is very important because the meta in CS is to pop out around a corner as slightly as you can then cancel movement so you stand perfectly still for a split second and shoot with standing still full accuracy before going back into cover. This is called peeking and its how combat is done most of the time if flashbangs / smoke is not used.
AK has really shitty 1st shot accuracy for a rifle thats supposed to be accurate, SG will always go where you fire it.
I was well on my way to global elite when I played but I got hit by the hacker wall before the first major waves of vacations started coming in. Kinda lost all motivation so I don't care anymore. My dream was to hit global elite with only the SG and AUG instead of AK / M4 so I could prove all the retarded AK apologists wrong. I guess LEM is good enough.
The Blishlok is just a tacticool'd Thompson.
Always throw ammo on cooldown, it doesnt matter where just do it.
Always put healing station down.
Throw ammo. Throw ammo. THROW THE AMMO.
Literally all you need to do to elevate yourself above the the hordes of all the other newbies is to keep your ammo bag permanently on cooldown as Skyhammer. Dirty Bomb isn't like any of the other F2P games; the two free starter mercs are legitimately top-tier.
don' do this
people will be much happier with you throwing ammo to them then having to go find where you dropped it. On top of this direct hit ammo gives them a reduction on their ability cooldowns, and gives you bonus exp. So just try to throw ammo to people you're standing near.
Focus on getting mercs before cards
Make informed decisions on what mercs you want. Bear in mind, mercs share weapons for the most part, so start by finding a weapon you enjoy using.
All loadout cards for a merc can be viewed in the store. Only 9 cards exist per merc, and anything above bronze is purely cosmetic. Additional perks are nice, but are NOT a substitute for skill.
Don't hold down m1 on auto weapons if you're out of CQC. Even then, still try and burst fire.
ADS (aiming down sights) on shotguns gives them reduced spread.
If anything else, use your fucking abilities jesus christ. Oh, and Aura and Skyhammer are two of the strongest mercs in the game.
it doesnt fucking matter just put it down NIGGER
>get told by multiple people here to always put ammo down
>think to myself surely it's not that bad
>next 2 matches i play after being told this my guns keep running dry and the skyhammers do fucking nothing
>second match, skyhammer player says "wtf there's no ammo on this map"
>skyhammer player says "wtf there's no ammo on this map"
There's a reason I always have Skyhammer in my squad no matter what even though I'm level 24.. Sometimes I just play him for game after game. He can do so much, and if you're hitting E constantly you will always be helping your team.
Also, killing people with the Airstrike marker indoors is funny as hell. If you manage to kill a Fragger like that you'll be laughing for a good 10 seconds.
Today I saw a level 9 brazilian Aura with 900 ping going ZA WARUDO all over the place and shitting over level 30somethings. It was hilarious.
I'm okay with this. Still haven't actually played her with a Bish.
Blish isn't as bad as some make it out to be.

source is one of the best engines out there, just because one single game is based on randomness doesn't mean that the entire engine is locked into that you dummy
remember, we're playing a fucking UE3 game
>source is one of the best engines out there
If you wanna see real proof why the source engine is so fucking terrible, watch a HL2 speedrun.
THIS is how broken source engine is.
>he thinks Elite cases and Cosmetics are the good things
Nigger Bronzes identical to everything on up, even Cobalts. And with a max of 9 cases you can have a Bronze in any merc you want instead of a randomass one.
up to whoever hosts the servers
highly customizable, compare csgo to titanfall for example, both games are source based
inherent advanced movement mechanics are only a good thing
You're wrong and right at the same time. Elite cases give nothing but cosmetics, so people don't feel bad about buying them to roll the dice.
>This is such horseshit, you need to buy elite cases to get a loadout worth using in this game. Fuck this, I'm going to play something that isn't P2W.
>You know, I've been playing for a long time, and I don't have a gold for my favorite merc yet...
bunnyhopping comes from way before anyone even thought about developing source engine, the old surfing/airstrafing/bunnyhopping physics were left in on purpose and like most things in the engine, those can be customized pretty extensively
>you've never ever blamed lag in cs
your point? cs isn't the only kind of game you can make with the engine
This is my only Cobalt and I kind of fucking hate it.

They just buffed the Grandeur, too. If they ever give it the red-dot scope like they said they're thinking of doing that'll be one of his best.
bomb squad is extremely high tier now, up there with drilled and explodey in my books
actually it's a minimum of 3 cases to "craft a bronze"
but in reality it's anywhere from 3-9
How to get good bronze cards
Step 1: Git Gud
Step 2: Rekt ppl more
Step 3: Finish the daily missions (if you see execution close it dont be a faggit)
Step 4: Ear more credits to 17k
Step 5: Buy on the store by doing this you can specifically get the perks or weapon you want for your character load out
or you could always stack up a bunch of cases and be a faggit till your asshole is sore enough for you to get your shit loadout card
Git gud load out card first then rekt noobs, its easy to get credits and cases as long as you are good a farming pts.
Also if you suck at aiming and lacking common sense and or lack of sense of direction. You should probably uninstall game.
Trust me, no body wants to carry a team whos only one job is to defend and stay in one area but your team mates has to be faggits and run out and keep shooting people like theres no objective to do.
Git Gud and Git Rekt m8
hollunds+drilled(H11) or remburger+double time(R22)
I prefer the hollunds to the remburg so I use H11
drilled is literally the best perk for shotguns and MGs
reloading is the one thing you don't want to be doing. Being able to do it faster or while moving more important than jumping. Your movement abilities are limited by the map and your situation, drilled and double time are constant, you'll always be reloading.
plus normal jumps are plenty
How is that broken wrist doing baby? How about you drink some milk?
>Because turn speed restricting can actually physically hurt(arm strain injuries) players
>He's not entirely wrong
>please point out where I said anything about sensitivity
christ i always took that forum post was exaggerating but obviously joking
i mean come on man this is like back in the day when soccer moms said controller vibration would damage their kid's hands.
You think it's a joke? No, this is reality.
The competitive scene is a bunch of crybabies.
Just because somebody has good aim and good reflexes does not mean he is any better at balance suggestions than a typical pub.
Do you know what we are even talking about? We are talking about thunder and how the competitive scene is a bunch of crybabies with broken wrists.
The reality is that fragger superior to thunder in every single possible way. Yet the "competitive" faggots wanted thunder nerfed because their wrists couldn't handle it.
Listen nigger, the entire discussion was about thunder. Not fragger.
You can fucking quote him saying something like.
>I played a game today
and say that he isn't entirely wrong because he played a game on that day.
That is irrelevant. The point was thunder. End of story.
DONT WORRY GUYS FULL RELEASE WILL SAVE US
This game was killed by its own developers
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT PLAYSTYLE HE HAS OR SHOULD HAVE.
HE IS SHIT. THEN HE GOT NERFED, sorry "bugfixed".
And he has been now shit for a long time.
Don't you fucking dare tell me it took you 3 years of alpha and beta to release a merc only to to find out he is broken both balance wise and bug wise and then proceed to nerf him under the rug to not piss off some players with sissy wrists.
How would you feel if fraggers nades were nerfed to 30 damage on direct hit and called a bugfix and then backed up with
Well it's not his play style to play like fletcher/nader.
No matter how many times you say "bugfixed" or "it doesn't suit his playstyle" or other bullshit, it WONT change the fact he is the worst merc in the game with literally no ability.
That is the fucking point. The point that SD is incompetent fucks and that the "competitive" players are all behind this bullshit.
I don't give a shit that you can come in here and be "w-well, in theory you see, he isn't entirely wrong, for you see ideally a flash nade works different to a explosive nade"
Get your nerd trash irrelevant comments out of here.
boy you sure are salty for a moron
I agree that thunder is shit and didn't deserve a nerf, you're an idiot for wanting a fragger clone though.
>prances like a retard about irrelevant points
>get told he is a faggot
>B-boy you sure are salty and dumb
Classic 101 how to be a bitch faggot.
>If you want tunder to be as useful as fragger means you want a fragger clone
>thunder as a heavy slow merc, should be a support y-yeah, that's diversity.
Fuck you. Just fuck you. Tunder and fragger are supposed to be similar in playstyle, both heavier mercs that can lead the assault and soak up some damage. The big difference is that one leads with damage and the other with crowd control.
BUT NOOO, that's not enough for faggots like you, "muh fragger clone".
Better trash a merc into uselessness, just so long as he isn't like fragger it's okay.
I like Execution but the missions are way too long. Even the shortest one takes longer than getting 15k xp in Objective or Stopwatch, for half the credits. I mostly skip them
or I join an empty server with a friend and we kill ourselves at the beginning of each round
Should I buy broken healer women or useless aussie man?
I have his best grandur card in swiss gold but i fucking hate everything about the gun.
I can taste the salt from here
I literally agree with you and you're still trying to argue. Here's a play-by-play because you can't keep up.
>I agree with him about thunder currently and in theory having a different playstyle
>you bring in sensitivity
>then complain that he's bad
>then I agree with you
>and you complain he's bad again
>I agree with him about thunder currently and in theory having a different playstyle
>you bring in sensitivity
Except the entire fucking point was about sensitivity and how the "pros" agree with it's removal. You make up your own point and I keep telling you it's irrelevant.
>Fragger has been nerfed to shit
>If you're playing Thunder the exact same way as Fragger you're just doing it wrong. Thunder has an element of support to him
I agree with 2/3 of the literal TLDR at the bottom of the image

you're taking one argument and making it into three.

Except he is still used in every single team on competitive games.
>Nerfed to shit
>I agree If you're playing Thunder the exact same way as Fragger you're just doing it wrong. Thunder has an element of support to him
Both are heavy class assaults. This is intentional.
Both are with out their abilities supposed to play similarly. This is intentional.
One has damage aspect to him, the other has crowd control aspect. This is their main diversity. You are not supposed to let your fucking sawbones charge in first while you cover behind him throwing a flashbang, providing covering fire and "support". Get it through your head.
The matchmaking keeps putting me in completely empty servers.
Is this game dead?
>Uninstalled this game like 7 times and i've reinstalled it again 2 minutes ago and looks like i'm going in again ...
kill me already.
>Nerfed to shit
did you even read the original image
it says compared to what he used to be
>Both are heavy class assaults. This is intentional.
thanks, Splash Damage representative, for clarifying how mercs are intended to be played, because you obviously know exactly what SD wants.
Get over yourself
I'd pay 60 dollars for a version of this game without sparks, kira, and fletcher
>>Nerfed to shit
>did you even read the original image
>it says compared to what he used to be
I am quoting YOU retard from here: >>128120762
>thanks, Splash Damage representative, for clarifying how mercs are intended to be played, because you obviously know exactly what SD wants.
Fragger fills a certain role. We need more mercs to fill that role so we can have some diversity. Instead of a fragger in every team in every competitive game.
OBVIOUSLY THE 160HP THUNDER SHOULD NOT HELP SOLVE THIS ISSUE. BUT INSTEAD BE PLAYED AS A SUPPORT BECAUSE ANON WANTS DIFFERENT KIND OF DIVERSITY!
>Get over yourself
How about YOU get over yourself you little git.
My suggestions actually address balance issues and give players more options.
Instead of the typical "oh wow can't argue with the devs because they clearly know what they are doing, wow can't argue with people with good aim because they clearly know how to make a fun game"
>I am quoting YOU
and I didn't quote the whole sentence because I wrongly assumed you'd read the image.
Just because you want another fragger doesn't mean that's what anyone else wants. You've got this false sense of superiority like you're the best game creator on the planet and you'd be best head of balance ever. If that's how you think why don't you make your suggestions on the forums or apply for a job at splash damage instead of bitching at me for wanting more diverse gameplay.
>My suggestions actually address balance issues and give players more options.
let me get right on that I'll be sure to patch him for you by tomorrow
At least they die easy to grenades and burst rifles.
I got to experience this lovely encounter the other day. They sat outside attacker spawn with 3 Rhino's and 2 hidden Aura stations. If that wasn't enough, nade spam and a laser would come rolling into play.
>Just because you want another fragger doesn't mean that's what anyone else wants.
You have multiple mercs for medics, engis, fire support, snipers, shotgun usage.
We have only 1 viable heavy assault class to lead the charge right now, fragger.
OH BUT THIS ANON THINKS THAT WE DON'T NEED ANOTHER ONE.
Take your own fucking advice, just because YOU don't want another merc that could fill in fraggers role doesn't mean other players don't want one.
>You've got this false sense of superiority like you're the best game creator
No, just better better than some, that include SD and you.
There is plenty of people who don't suck at their job as game developers.
>If that's how you think why don't you make your suggestions on the forums
SD doesn't implement shit from the community. Fuck they can't even implement their own fucking ideas fully.
>or apply for a job at splash damage instead
Wew no. Read what you suggest.
>of bitching at me for wanting more diverse gameplay.
You are thinking from a purely your standpoint.
The reality is as mentioned before people need more mercs in the same role, because you can start throwing oddballs in there.
>let me get right on that I'll be sure to patch him for you by tomorrow
I am not telling you to fix him.
I am simply disagreeing with you on design decisions.
>We have only 1 viable heavy assault class
>waah nobody uses her in comp
so I guess they should just buff her then
comp is a complete joke
>SD doesn't implement shit from the community.
then why are you crying about someone who apparently got something changed by posting about it?
Or do you think it was SD's idea to remove sensitivity impairment?
Can you imagine being this guy? You are total retard with brain damage so you decide that thunder is too strong when in reality he is just a shitty fragger in every situation.
So you nerf thunder to be totally useless while ignoring :
Fletcher : Infinite 100 damage bombs, 2 primaries, high hp, high speed AND engineer on top. This is totally fine even tho most mercs only have 1 loadout with a good smg while fletcher gets a bunch of smgs for free along with shotguns.
Sparks : Self healing vaseline that can revive from any range and has a superior hybrid of the moa pdp with no ammo or meaningful resource system. Incredibly fast, super tiny hitbox lets you just sperg away from any bad fight you wont faceroll instantly with the railgun. Also has a buch of weapons on top of her already broken railgun because why not?
Rhino : It's totally okay to have a character that is either absolutely 100% worthless or 100% impossible to deal with. Obviously since you dont know what the fuck you are doing you think that letting people tap the minigun to make it into a super accurate BR on steroids with infinite ammo is totally fine. Yet again a character that has a super good primary weapon also has two other very good weapons for no fucking reason.
>having one merc lead with explosives and the other lead with crowdcontrol is not diverse enough
>don't worry we already have enough diverse options for assault class.
>with nader as opposed to fragger you get to shoot MANY explosives instead of one that can't be cooked
>wow, such diversity, SUCH fucking options.
They tweek mercs based on public opinion and not what works in competitive, which is retarded but the whole point is to sell stuff to people.
A typical casual isn't accurate enough to use Sparks, Rhino or Fletcher efficiently. Because of that they have to 'adjust' them to be more casual friendly. Of course in the right hands, these mercs will roll face.
At the same time mercs like Proxy who desperately need a buff or better weapons won't be improved anytime soon, because your typical casual is attracted to mines like bees to honey. In their opinion Proxy is OP as she gets 'two free kills'.

1 Assault class that's viable? What?
Nader is amazing always in comp. Rhino also has his uses. So 3 of the 4 Assault mercs are used in comp. Fragger is obviously always used, so if that's what you mean by viable, as in, always used, then yes there is only 1. But don't pretend like Nader isn't there frequently. Rhino less so, but he has his uses on maps like Underground, Terminal and Bridge.
Though I agree with Thunder needing buffs. I've posted it before, so did another anon, but I think him having 2 grenades would be great. One Flash, one Concussion. Would really mix up how you could use him and he could actually push properly with his slow ass speed.
I doubt anyone will agree with me on this one, but I think he should also have more HP for how big his fucking hitbox is. 170 would be great. That way he could be another kind of Fragger, but have some different uses. I mean 160 is nice, but his hitbox is huge, he's slow, no one dies from his ability. If he had the 2 grenades and more HP, he might be able to effectively time the two effects together so he can actually make a push, instead of waltzing in shortly before everyone can see again.
I mean as it is now, Fletcher and Stoker are better options to lead a charge than Thunder. That's not right.
Stoker : Essentially indoor skyhammer with no BR loadout and Ammo packs
Aura : Health station is either OP or useless if they have a good fragger,stoker and nader while at the same time shes annoying as fuck due to her speed and weapons and the new strategy with her is just rub and place a health station anywhere
Fragger : nerfed numerous times but still a top contender
Arty: Arguably a better skyhammer due to pin point strikes but flinching fucks him up
Is mostly used because you can't use 2 of the same merc in competitive.
>Rhino also has his uses
He isn't for assault, he is for defense.
By all means you can show me videos of rihnos used to aggressively push into enemy positions.
Pretty much read above.
You're alright, anon. Keep medic'n like you're doing.
And post your card.
She's also mostly used because of her being the fastest 120 HP merc, her grenade launcher being able to hit people without being seen, area denial, flooding a choke hold with explosives and overall being a powerful merc to push with.
You said only 1 viable assault, but there are 3. Just because Rhino isn't one to push forward doesn't make him not viable. He is still Assault, even if he's more about leading the defense.
What you're trying to say is, that there is only 1 Assault classified merc that is good at making a push on the Attacker side. Which is not true, both Nader and Fragger are good mercs for being on the Attacker side. That doesn't make Rhino irrelevant or not viable because he fills another aspect of the Assault class.
He is supposed to be recon. Specifically, used with voice comms. A Phantom that uses his mic can be more useful than a wallhack ball because he can say specifically what's out there and where.
However, most pubs don't want to use their mic, so all he does is Assault.
Phantom is classified as Recon. Just like Stoker is classified as Fire Support. Stoker leading the charge and top fragging does not suddenly make him Assault. He's still Fire Support.
Just like a top fragging Phantom is still Recon.
Dropped from a normal crate a few days after I started playing so I kept using this. I want to get SM72 and keep alternating between the two.
There's 4 of every class, including the two mercs not yet released.
The 4 Engineers Proxy, Fletcher, Bushwhacker, Turtle.
The 4 Medics are Aura, Phoenix, Sparks, Sawbonez.
The 4 Fire Support mercs are Stoker, Skyhammer, Kira, Arty.
The 4 Assault mercs are Thunder, Rhino, Fragger, Nader.
The 4 Recon mercs are Aimee, Vassili, Red Eye, Phantom.
It's not headcannon, it's what he is.
What makes phantom a recon? Where is his recon ability? Just because hes classified as recon does not actually make him into one. He has absolutely no way of getting support xp besides shit that every merc can do (stick together, revive, backup)
Even his cloak gives him combat xp (thanks SD that +1 xp for being near people is really helpful)
