    Disguise is an AWESOME ability when paired with Shockwave, the EMP Shotgun, and in Conquest/Countdown to Extinction.

    It was a blast. Also, humorously, the colorschemes are whatever your colorscheme is for your opposite chassis.

    Hope it returns for Fall.

    Well, the Scientist is damn near USELESS in Team Deathmatch and Deathmatch

    Conquest and Countdown to Extinction, where disguise greatly assists with keeping what you're doing a secret?

    It owns. And I found out why the EMP is considered awesome. I think the Energon Harvester in Fall will be the replacement.

    No he's not. There are some very skilled Scientist out there. Silverbolt07 is the best I've played with. I'm ok with the Scientist class. Heck just yesterday I had a 14-3 match. Cracked 18 kills a few times with it as well.

    Yea ive been playing jet since day 1 its my favorite class and i play team deathmatch the most,ive learned and developed some really good tactics with it. A lot of people underestimate scientist but in the right hands its almost as deadly as a leader as far as getting kills heh. thanks for the compliment Sideswipe80, its always fun having you on my team man.

    No. The ultimate combo is
    Chassis: Silverbolt/Starscream
    Weapons: EMP Shotgun, Photon Burst Rifle
    Abilities: Shockwave, Disguise

    Silverbolt has a glitch where Mark Target has no effect on him.

    I have gotten some of my best scores with a Scientist. He may have the least amount of health but he is far from useless.

    Also the problem with Shockwave and disguise is that his alt mode is easily recognized. So if anyone really knows the chassis, they will now what to look for. Slipstream has a jet mode similar to Silverbolt so she is the best choice for disguise in my opinion.

    Actually mark target does work on silverbolt but only in his vehicle mode.. the same goes for onslaught. and disguise rarely works effectively because most people are smart enough to tell a decepticon from an autobot even if they just change their color, thats why I dont use it.

    I had some success with disguise early on, but mostly people are wise to it. I like it when people try it on me, though, because they like to get right in on you. That's when you whack 'em. The old swoop in, transform, and shotgun blast seems to work fine, as long as you don't do it head-on.

    Disguise is obviously not the most useful for its purpose, but it is VERY important. While disguised, your sentries are disguised, no one can lock on to you, and sentries do not attack you. Oh, and Thermo Mines don't follow you.

    Good luck with disguise with vertaran players they will spot you straight away and scientist in both death matches? I got a 10 winning streak with a scientist in death match and I get up to 14 kills in team deathmatch

    It's not the disguise which is useful, it's the perk that gives you a damage bonus when you lose it. Thats what's useful about disguise. :D 

    Scientist is a great class, I got a flawless TDM with it and finished with 26 kills.

    The other day I got 40 kills with the scientist in powerstruggle, admittedly I got 11 deaths though. I did however finish with an unused shock cannon :D .

    Learn to chain your killstreaks. Then your primary weapon pretty much becomes a shock cannon.

    How is Disguise with Shockwave so good? I can identify one of those from a mile. Shockwave is the most unique design in MP scientists.

    As I have said before, it is kind of harder to tell Silverbolt from Slipstream in jet mode, so those are the only two I would use with disguise.
