    The Path Blaster seems to have been nerfed more since the demo because the range has been shortened. I also can't seem to hit anything with it anymore - I can't even seem to take down Scientists while hovering in the same spot. It's far too weak now. I'm trying to use the SMG but by the time I've ran out of a clip the guy has turned around and killed me.

    I wish the Infiltrator wasn't nerfed so badly, it really a hassle to play and isn't fun at all now.

    I'm good with it; you have be be all sneaky-like and then go for the kills by backstabbing.

    A good infiltrator attacks from behind while the enemy is engaged against someone else.

    No.
    They're brilliant if used properly. Really frustrating to fight. People need to stop whining about not learning how to use a character properly yet. Scientists, Infiltrators and Destroyers all have threads whining, I'm sure Titan's coming soon.

    Pretend all your enemies, especially titans, are Guardians. Except that you use the melee button instead of the interact button, and then you follow with a TON of shots from your strongest weapon.

    This. Basically the same thing I said above. Cliffjumper has a lot to do with playing a good Infiltrator. Strike first, strike fast, strike hard.
    But there's no way in hell Titan will get a complaint thread, every time I try to take one, I get instantaneously gunned down by the Scrapmaker. If I don't take them down ASAP before they can even realize I was there, whirlwind chops me in half in about 2 seconds.

    I haven't gotten much Sci gameplay yet, but Destroyers are best used as fighters who distract while others assist.

    Teamwork results in many a kill.

    Is Sci good in CTF?

    Scientists after level 15 may just be the best class in the game. Sentry + Photon Burst Rifle destroys everything.

    Damn it, I'm only two levels away from the Burst Rifle. I loved it in WFC, and I'm worried it's not as good. So far it sounds better than WFC.

    My problem are the weapons, not the heath or the cloak etc. I know how to play as the class very well. The path blaster isn't good anymore and it was a weapon I got used to. It was fine late in the demo but now it's even waker in the full game to the point that it's useless.

    Wasn't a very good description, then.

    "I'm trying to use the SMG but by the time I've ran out of a clip the guy has turned around and killed me."

    Obviously means that I've sneaked up behind him.

    Not if you don't directly say you snuck up behind him.

    I'm the same. I can't hit shit with the path blaster now. Even if they are staying in the same spot I only get a hit marker one out of 5 maybe. The subsonic repeater though is amazing

    the only problem i have with infiltrators is the 10 second cloak and it dropping to 3 seconds if sprinting or driving. the class feels broken now

    as for the weapons, the SMG with the extended clip is on my list of favorite weapons. it's in par with the burst rifle. as for the shotgun and path blaster, throw them away as soon as possible

    This.
    We need class-specific tip threads, and to revive the old Scientist one.

    The SMG is great with ion cartridge but the charge rifle isn't needed on more than half of the maps, making it useless.

    My biggest gripe is the Path Blaster. It went from an OP gun to a gun that separated the skilled from the spammers to just an all round weak weapon now.

    I really miss the scout/infiltrator's ability to dash in vehicle mode. I got so tricky with that in the first game. It was my favorite part of that class.

    That's a viable move seeing as cloak is just so lame now. At least with EMPs you can gain an advantage and I can see this going well with the SMG when given an accuracy bonus.

    But I just miss how the Infiltrator was later in the demo. The weapons are just too weak; now I get mostly assists.
