    Today this thread is going to be how to fight back against Soldiers in WFC.

    The Photon Burst Rifle and EMP Shotgun for the Scientist are boss at killing Soldiers. The bust rifle only takes five shots. The EMP Shotgun can be a two shot kill with a damage buff. The battle Pistol and Scatter blaster coming out of cloak can be devastating.

    If a soldier tries to use whirlwind just jump up. They can't jump up when their using it. They also have a hard time looking up. If your a Scientist then double jump above them and transform and fly away. If your a scout then use dash once a above them. While Scouts and Scientists can get away easily, leaders might have a hard time getting away since their slower. Use molcleon bomb to slow them down or disruption to make them change form and lose the ability.

    The Soldiers primary disadvantage is the fact that he's the slowest of all the class's. You can easily out run them and lead them in to surprise attacks.

    The secondary disadvantage? Long range combat. The Soldier has no long range and scoped weapons. He has the tank cannon but that easily can be evaded. When someones trying to use hover? If they use fine aim then it becomes a second person view. That means they can't see where their going.

    I'll have to have time to go back and edit to add more.

    EDIT: Thanks Prime Jetscream for the tip. Target soldiers who are stupid enough to be standing still. This includes when their in hover.

    Soldier can easily pick up a Null Ray or Battle Pistol, just as any character can.

    And not to be rude, but that tank barrel can be a pain to dodge if the player knows how to aim it, and for a scientist or a scout, it only takes one direct shot to kill you (1 boosted shot for a scout I believe), and 2 shots of splash damage to kill as well.

    Soldiers can be very tricky, if they're not very skilled, it's easy to take them out with long range weapons like the battle pistol, but most good Soldiers will avoid long range confrontation and wait for when you're alone in a confined area, or busy fighting someone else and take you out with the "Spray and Pray" Scrapmaker.

    I love it though when you shoot a Soldier from halfway across the map and their first reaction is to whirlwind. Always a classic.

    Also I heard someone here say they're sure that a point-blank EMP shot can kill anything no matter what in one hit.
    Also, there's a glitch (At least for me >.>) where any ability I put in the right slot makes me transform if I try to use them, which just figures because it's usually an ability I need to use NAO, like Dash. It doesn't happen in Scientist Class for some reason.
    It may just be me panicking and accidentally pressing Transform, but it's happened too many times for that to be the case.

    At long range the tank cannon can kill, but a can't see shit and and up taking a lucky shot into a pack of fighters. As far as the X12 goes? Continually double jump. When moving targets happen I can't hit shit and have to sacrifice Heavy Weapons for Sharpshooter.

    I'm a specialist at one on one and crowded area confrontations. This includes the Soldier. If your one on one? With a soldier? SO!? If your being attacked by a soldier? Jump on top of him! Just jump up and when your above him look down and melee. The soldier is slow.

    The Thermo Rocket Launcher is a long range weapon. Its not supposed to be a long range weapon and just because it is doesn't mean its a good long range weapon.

    Yes, I know, I meant snipers.

    Also, another tip you should add is to target Soldiers who stand still for a long time, although this applies to almost every class. I killed an overshielded Leader with a headshot because he was standing around on a Node.

    Erm..., sharpshooter with the scrapmaker = long ranged...

    Anyway you don't need a long ranged weapon for a soldier, you just keep your momentum going and your shotgun will be in range in a couple of seconds.

    When scoped in it's practically a Null Ray.

    The X12's stats are

    Damage: 7
    Range 6
    Accuracy: 3 (7 with Sharpshooter)
    Fire Rate: 8

    By its self its clearly not supposed to be a long range weapon. The Thermo Rocket Launcher has a range of: 8 or 9.
