Yeah perhaps we should talk about how to counter the rushing team. What works best for you guys?

I don't think anyone thought about this ever before...

 

 

Weapons and throwables.

What works best:

 

A charge or a stand with partial cover?

 

It's obvious. Watch ZULU. I think it's a 1963 film. The thin red line.

Re: Rushing

I'm the Agility + Covert user. When the game starts I run straight for enemy team. When I notice them, or reach around middle of the map (where they can see me sprinting on radar) I start to crouch and try to find the enemy team and either flank them, or try to kill lone straglers. Sometimes I camp supply boxes and pick off crafters. For this I use Bow and Enforcer if I need something faster and more reliable.

I guess it can be pretty annoying for the enemy team, especially crafters.

 

Rushing the enemy team with power weapons like Shotgun, Spectre, Flamethrower etc isn't my thing. That's really like any other generic shooter game out there. I may use those weapons, but only to counter the very same weapons in the hands of the enemy team, or to deal with guys with Brawler. I used to be able to Shiv those Rocky wannabes, but stupid ND removed that, so I have to rely on power weapons instead. Wasting Loadout Points...

 

Lately I noticed quite a few people rushing with BR and HR scoring multiple super quick headshots utterly pwning the other team. When coupled with 1-2 bar pings that gets much more annoying than Shotgun + armor heroes.

It's simple. Just ask yourself:

What would Rambo do?

"What would Rambo do?"

 

he would cry into Trautman's arms about his lost buddy then retire to Burma to compete in snake juggling competitions.

What about snake juggling?

Easy to stop a rush, find cover and stand your ground or back off, craft, [if possible], then ambush/rush.

Even when you play "No Parties" you gotta stay with a teammate or two. I like to have at least 1 level of Reviver on because I assume were going to die a lot :smileyvery-happy:
I just keep picking them back up whenever possible. Charge up the Spectre with 2+ purchased clips and wait for my moment later in the match.

What I don't do anymore us try to lead the noobs/randoms. I don't go first. I don't complain when they don't revive or steal my kill (not on the mic anyway :smileywink: ). I just hang near a group or one player. Watching his back. They seem to be more likely tohelp me as well.

Point is to hang with your team as much as ppossible. Even randumb. Then EXPECT the rush. Assume the other team is rushing. Warn your team on the mic. Mark, call out, try to cordinate who is going right and whos going left..

I just expect the rush now. And it doesnt bother me as much.
