^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

Title says it all.

 

 

What are your thoughs on the literal hit-or-miss piledrivers?

 

Personally, they've netted me a lot of kills, and I usually carry them on an AC even just as an anti-tank weapon.

 

 

Thoughts?

This computer that I am currently on doesn't run Youtube for some odd reason.

Your browser is probably outdated.

 

I've only used piledrivers maybe 2 or 3 times, so I'm no expert :P

 

I've been a victim of them too many times though, haha

I think they are very useful. everyone has a weak point to exploit, you find it and you kill them with a pile. just don't miss

Using them against tanks after glideboosting into it is a very nice way to take them out, especially if said tank is busy shooting at a UNAC and has it's back turned.

Or you surprise it with a Recon Jammer into a Pile Driver...

Ah yes, your "Deceptive-Cone", I believe? The recon jammer doesn't help with reg. lock-on, so while it is an advantage, having the extended hitbox of the dual piledriver equipped really helps sometimes.

Its not really an extended hitbox, its just one hitbox per pile. Two piles, two hitboxes. You don't have to worry about throwing the right or left  hand pile that way. But you burn your ammo very quickly.

‚ÄčThe recon jammer is just for sneaking up on people. I think someone who's role is to act as a bullet hose does that job better, but its just an opinion.


Anything can be solved with the proper application of explosives

I've always been under the impression that the single swing animation has better forward reach than the dual.


Close the door, put out the light.
