It costs too much and quite honestly. I don't play attacking enough to earn the medals to use it.

 

I'd be wasting a kickback if I selected it.

Isn't it only 12 medals? Either way, yeah, it's kinda hard to get much use out of it. It betays teammates, the spider inertia makes it hard to steer, you can't climb (funny, since you're a blob of spiders...), the jump is difficult to use, and even the slightest bit of damage from an explosiin cancels it. Also, the speed is really deceptive. Try chasing down somebody who's actively running from you. You will NEVER catch them.

CC can be dead useful in TO if used at the right moment. For e.g if u wana clear a KOH thats full of 5 opponents..u can activate it and clear out the entire hill and go to their spawn area and kill them again. Even if u die midway through your kickback you're spawn back at the hill and capture it. But the main drawback is that it requires 12 medals and it can easily be destroyed (especially inTO where grenades are blowing all over the place). But i remember one opponent using it at the right moment druing a round 5 KOH and cleared out all 5 of us while we were rushing the hill. It potentially won them the match. Kudos for that player using it logically. Twas such a fun game

This is why i don't use it:

  1. Too expensive, 14 medals i believe?
  2. You can't climb anything
  3. You can kill team mates
  4. It ends with explosions

 


Same. Last time time I used was like.. year ago? Smiley Very Happy

It CAN help lock down an objective, but people LOVE to wing grenades into objectives. It makes it hard to keep your CC going. It'll also kill your teammates if they're trying for the objective.

I wish the spiders were a bit more responsive to directional changes, and I agree it's annoying that they can be destroyed by grenades.  I don't use it because ultimately it's just not practical for how expensive it is in terms of medals.
