    This has been bugging me for quite some time. I've noticed that, while playing team deathmatch, sometimes characters fall to the ground (like in the campaign or Escalation when you're downed but can continue to fire). And it's usually always the leader class. Just wondering if I'm the only one who's experienced this and why it's happening.

    There is a leader class ability that allows the character to behave like that when they are killed.

    What ability is it though? I've been playing as leader more frequently and can't recall being downed in team deathmatch like that. Oh and my leader's maxed-out; do I need to reach Prime mode?

    no, there's a list of things called abilities (not the ones you can activate). they're more like upgrades and this one allows you to be downed before you die, it's called "reserve power cells" and you have to be a certain level to unlock it.

    Ah, okay. Thanks for answering. Whatever the case, it makes me chuckle for some reason, especially when shooting them point-blank with heavy weapons. :D

    i have a tip for you when using that: when you are downed and have a fusion cannon equipped, fire it at the ground so the guy on the other team doesn't get the full kill and just an assist (i know it's a dick move but it helps in TD)

    When someone has Reserve Power Cells, it means they gave up Flak Armor. When I was playing against Power Cell players, I would equip a Frag Launcher when leader or steal their explosive weapon when not a leader. Ah, fun fun.

    Another player that has no idea what it is...

    If someone has been downed on your side you can revive them, just like in escalation. I hate it when your whole team just walks right past you.


    You can be revived when your downed, or if you get a kill when health matrix is online you'll get back up, or if a scientist activates overshield matrix while your down, or a health grenade or health ray.

    Thank you for saying this. I also HATE when this happens. I get get when there's an enemy right on top of us, you try to take him out before he takes us both out, but dammit do not just take the hell off and leave me downed with ot picking me up.

    I know that feel, bro. Which is why I hardly play Escalation because, due to my bad luck, I usually always get crappy teammates. Heck, it's bad enough just playing TD lately because I seem to spend more time looking at a loading screen or connection errors.

    It is completely a dick move and in no way should this type of behavior be supported.

    That line didn't seem to help Megatron much, but I might try it next time anyway.

    Oooh, that may have been me. I've had trouble once or twice reviving people. Holding the button, thinking it's not working and letting go just when it starts.

    I feel so guilty when that happens because I'm afraid people think I'm laughing at them dieing.

    I always get scrapped while I'm reviving teammates. Crippled jerks never cover my butt.
