Creepy Crawler Discussion

16 replies 551 views Edited Feb 14, 2014

I rarely see anyone use CC and wonder why not?? I tried it out for the first time in months and after getting used to NOT instantly hitting the up button to activate my kickback, it's a lot of fun. 

 

In the first 30 minutes of using it I got a 5 not alive and it seems so overpowered being able to move so fast  for a full 30 seconds. The 5 not alive actually started with a M9 kill just outside if the main room in Syria, I acivated CC and went inside and immediately got 2 kills, went upstairs and got 3 more. (I would have still gotten the 5 not alive without the M9 kill).

 

I imagine Desert Village would also be a great map for CC

 

Why don't more people use this?? What are the pros and cons?? 

 

One negative is that I killed 2 teammate during the 5 not alive. Thoughts??

It's a fun kickback to use, but you have to use it at the right time. It's pretty easy to see why people don't use it; it costs a lot of medals and a single enemy or your team mate's grenade can easily destroy it. If you kill someone that has revenge equipped (always a person in every match that has it), you can pretty much kiss your spiders good bye. It's actually quite annoying. It needs to be able to survive at least two grenade blasts for them to be destroyed imo especially for that amount of medals.

I prefer Cursed Idol over it. Cursed Idol is lol. Such a funny kickback. Wish the curse would last longer on it.

Would be fun if Revenge wasn't a booster.
And if its medal count was dropped a bit. Maybe to 12 medals. 14 is ridiculous.

I only really play FFXIV and Smite now a'days.

I would love the Creepy Crawler Kickback if it could survive explosions (e.g., grenades).

 

It isn’t practical to use this kickback if you intend to kill players because (a) it is very easy for a grenade to ruin it, (b) you need to be right next to someone in order for it to be effective, and (c) other players are often using the revenge booster. I use this medal kickback all of the time but that is mainly because I don’t activate my medal kickbacks very much anymore.

I didn't realize that grenades cancel out CC...no wonder nobody uses it.

Guess I'm back to using other kickbacks.

Don't switch back! Creepy Crawler is the only Kickback that cancels out lag, and it even let's you survive T-Bolt shots if you time it perfectly.

Use it as a Smoke Bomb that kills, and even if you don't get a kill with it, you can chase away any players that were attacking you and you will know where you will respawn.

It's the best strategy Kickback in the game IMO.

they can easily be destroyed with explosions and the kickback number is WAYYY too high for anyone to bother with ive probably been killed by CC maybe 7 or 8 times on UC3 and ive had it for half a year now.

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
