    How do you like to take out your opponents in online multiplayer?

    Since I main Scout, I usually do one of two things.

    1. I cloak myself, then I drive around the battlefield until I find either a lone enemy or a small group, and take 'em out using melee moves or my battle pistol.

    2. I position myself a distance from where the main battle is taking place and use my Null Ray to snipe people.

    The element of surprise is a must. :ev:

    Emp shotgun, point blank. Nothing like seeing an enemy robot explode into nothing mere inches from your face.

    talking about strategies is a no no, we should be talking about best kill moments. like with scout i melee kill solders during their whirlwind twice. shockwaving guys off cliffs is always fun

    When playing Scientist one my favorite things to fly into a conquest zone and transform, drop my sentry, then shockwave, then EMP Shotgun. I can usually take out entire groups of enemies.

    A scientist with an enhanced shockwave and drain is simply beautiful at taking out groups of scouts or other scientists. :rip  Just fly in and click Lb and Rb (I'm an xbox player). Shockwave bounces them back (and damages them) just enough so that you can still drain them.

    Well, unfortunately, this thread is about strategies, not kills, but feel free to go make a thread about best kill moments elsewhere.

    Jump and use the melee stomp right on the head. Looks great.

    This is pretty much my favorite method whenever I'm a scout. I've actually gotten quite good at it.

    Whenever I'm a scientist, I tend to fly into the midst of a battle or group of enemies, drop off a sentry, release a shockwave, and get the heck out of there. A lot of the times though, I stubbornly stick around trying to kill a guy and end up being killed instead. :p 

    Whenever I play leader or soldier, I pretty much just charge straight in guns blazing.

    I usually use my scientist to try to find and fly to high ground and take out enemies from above. I find that you last longer that way, good stategy for newbs that want to last a while on the battlefield. The only problem with this is that you can't really rack up many kills that way, but your death stats tend to go down. The other thing I do is find a place I can defend and drop the sentry. Soon as it starts firing, so do I. Get better kill stats that way, but also get taken out pretty easily too.

    so i'm learning to play a leader, it was very hard for me at first because i had no stealth or disguise to rely on.

    i'm learning to kill buy ramming enemies, and if i die a themo is left behind.

    I get a kick out of cloaking and unloading my shotgun as a Scout.

    I'll let you guys know when I manage to pull one off without immediately dying afterwards. ;)
