    Default I gotta say.. I suck badly ._.

    Any tips or anything for this game? I just started yesterday and I screwed up completely. This is probably the second 3rd Person Shooter that I suck at D: (First was Gunz but bleh I didn't like that anyway)

    Anyone who plays this game want to give me advice or train me kinda? Any help would appreciated.

    If this were any other game then I would've stopped long time ago but I gotta say I'm loving the giant robot theme <3 Reminds me of Super Robot Wars without the tactical aspect.

    Basically, stay back, keep focused on one person at a time, and don't let people melee you. If you see a person with a sword come at you, jump boost to get away. If someones shooting you with smg's, jump and go left and right while staying in range and you should kill them easily. If someone has a cannon, boost towards them while going left and right and they shouldn't be able to hit you. Hope I can help =X

    Jump boosting a sword user is stupid unless you are in a map with a ledge to sit on because I know when people jump boost over me when i have my sword out i just wait for them to land and hit them in back and on top of that most sword users have an smg in the opposite hand as a sword to deal with jump boosters. My tip is to play some Last Stand maps to get used to the boosting and how to dodge stuff.

    This is pretty unorganized but I think it has some valuable advice in it

    I would say, personally, just wait a couple more days and participate in Territory control and team death match. You should use cover in this game as most people rely on the lock-on system. For example if you go behind a pillar it's likely someone shooting at you will overheat their weapons and miss as your mechs center isn't visible (this is where they generally have to aim to get a lock). Use beam spitters, I can't really say exactly why they're good but trust me the only thing you have to worry about is how fast they heat up.

    If someone with a sword hits you, wait right after they hit then use the shift key to boost in the opposite direction . It's likely that they will follow you so shoot them while boosting (due to the delay of the sword and the fact they'll probably swing again you'll have a good lead). You might run out of EN and not kill them during your boost, if this happens don't boost just walk backwards, regain some EN, and let your guns cool down a bit or switch weapons. Then boost through them and turn around quickly to attack them (this may not work against semi-experienced or if you have been boosting towards them for too long and they realize you're probably gonna boost through them).

    You may want to go into practice mode and boost in circles around the dummy's trying to shoot and keep a lock on them. It will help a bit with aiming. The energy shield available in the store is better against small arms fire (rifles, SMGs) the default one is good against (cannons, and I think rockets). Using your specials such as blast helix or spinal tap grant you invincibility during the animation (also if you plan on using skills a lot theres a way to look at their damage by using the tabs at the bottom right corner).

    Also ALWAYS use shift when boosting, theres less of a delay. Now then, say your boosting right but now you have to make a tun. Let go of shift then quickly boost again using shift in the direction you want to go. By landing you don't go through an animation that makes your mech stop/slow down for about a second. It also isn't really something people expect so it may throw people off once or twice.

    Spitters are good becuase for smgs weapon, it has the highest range which is 3/4 of the distance a rifle can fire and that's pretty good. overheat is fast but cooling rate is faster than anyother so far.
    When it comes to large battles be very aware of your surroundings. You can usual spot a couple rocket/cannon users or riflers in some ledges, as they have long range weapons, they're pretty much useless close up unless they have a melee weapon equiped. Also as soon as you see the lock on label on your screen, start moving fast!. You don't want to get shot and even if you do make it harder for others to shoot you by strafing left right or any other direction that keeps your predator shooting air.

    i used to play and was pretty good, but i left cause i got bored of it... anyway, here are my tips.
    (sorry if any of these get repeated, didnt bothe reading all the replies)

    for death match:

    1) use weapons that compliment each other, 2x smg is ok if your grade A noob, but you get stuck with the reload times and have to change alot, which is bad because this sucks up your energy.

    I recommend either smg+ a melee weapon (i prefer sword, hits multiple targets) or smg+ rifle, that way you can do kind of a hit and run tactic by hitting w/ smg, then boosting backwards and using rifle. this works especialy well on people who rely on melee.

    2) use boost wisely!!!

    Dont use up all of your boost getting to the fight, because once you get there, your all but useless.
    Also, dont forget about your jump boost, when you have someone charging you and shooting at the same time, jump boost over them, turn around, and shoot at them. you would be supprised how many people cant seem to relocate you fast enough when you do this.

    3) Know your Surroundings.
    Study the maps a little by playing some solo Last stands at level one, and just run around memorizing the map instead of actualy playing the mission. Then, if your all ranged gear, you can back peddal through most of the map in a real match and pummel the enemy with bullets.

    4) use skills wisely

    Some skills do not require a target to be used, i forget what its called, but the one where 2xsmg are required is a good example, if you use that skill while everyone is shooting at you, you are temporarily invincible and once the skill is done, jump boost away. (or just boost if your a heavy)

    5) if you are melee,

    use a grab skill that pushes an enemy back when the skill is done, and try to use this skills while the enemy is against a wall. After the skill is done, sneak in a couple extra attacks with your melee weapon(s) before they can move, and when they do move, they will have to follow the wall for a little while, they cant just boost backwards. (this works best with swords imo, but play style all depends on you)

    In capture the flag:

    1) talk to your damn team! i cant tell you how many match's i have seen lost because of poor communication, or NO communication.

    2) ALWAYS make sure you have MINIMUM 2 people guarding the flag (3 suggested as minimum on a 8v8 game)

    3) make sure the LIGHTEST POSSIBLE TEAM MEMBER is the one who gets priority on the flag capture, and always make sure he has an escort or two, that way even if he dies, if the escort is good, they can pick the flag up from his metal corpse, and keep running with it.

    4) familiarize yourself with the quickest AND least travled ways from their flag, to yours. Sometimes, taking the long road back once you get the flag is good, because most people expect you to take the quickest way. And if your taking the side roads home, and they take the main road, chances are they wont run into you, and if your defenders do their job, they shouldnt capture your flag either.

    5) and last, but definately not least. BRING A RECTIFIER (healing gun) [spell check?] if you are the only person with a rectifier, do not try to capture the flag unless your the only person capping, you should instead be accompanying the capper, and healing him as he runs through a bunch of bullets to get the flag back.

    Edit: btw, if anyone wants to play w/ me, my xfire name is burnedbacon
