    For example:

    - I die in one hit from melee when at full health sometimes
    - I died from one hit of a tank cannon again being at full health WITH an overshield (unless having jammed abilities takes the shield away.)
    - Melee attacks that miss me still deals damage
    - I P.O.K.E 2.0ed someone and they didn't die.

    There may be others that I have forgotten and this may be down to the "trainer" if it is avaliable on the xbox.

    Practice more. This is a strategy that's been around since jumping was added to fps games. You just need to get better at tracking your enemy and making them pay for jumping. It's annoying at first, but once you start to get used to it you can have fun taking them out with headshots because you'll know where they are going to be before they get there.

    Yup. I'm infamous now I guess. But seriously. This game is getting very buggy.

    Have you considered that it might be your connection or the connections of other players in the game?

    In Halo you sometimes get people who you can headshot point blank and they suddenly will melee you to the back of the head, or who will be seen falling in 1 spot 3 or 4 times over. It's got to do with the connection being laggy on one or both ends, and while annoying, there is little you can do about it. It could be a matter of them having a poor overall connection, or them having torrents running in the background, causing erratic behavior in their connection with their up/download bandwidth being used at an inconsistent rate.

    Each game handles lag a bit differently, and I'm thinking your issues are at least in part caused by how this game deals with them. It's not so much the fault of the game being buggy, but more the way the connection is handled. Try getting into a game with a few of your friends who are local and you know have a good connection to you, then make sure you have no other connections active on your individual connections and try the game to see if you're still getting the same glitches

    Isn't Scout down right vicious out of cloak with (I forget what it's called) activated or with the scatter blaster equipped?

    I don't think that has much to do with damage. When I have a bad connection I start to slide I don't see anything leave my blaster and my opponents generally stand still.

    its really hit or miss with that! u have too still double melee a leader and a tank... which sucks!

    its honestly all lag and the way the game handles lag!
    with no dedicated servers i dont think the problem will ever go away.

    only bug I want them to fix right now is the host quitting bug on Ps3 I can't tell you how annoying it is when playing escalation and the host quits.

    or my connection to the host sucks and it becomes lost
    get this
    one time I lost connection, joined the game again (kept all my points)
    last night? same thing...
    Lost connection, joined the game again. (lost all my points)

    How can I play a game that has a hit and miss-esque exp saver? how is that even fun?

    Lag does cause some problems, I don't get it that much though, only every now and then.

    I'm playing scout still, and having just got hold of the targeting chip perk, I know why you're getting one melee killed, that perk is downright brutal.

    But yeah, the hit detection is off sometimes with the lag, but so what? Just have fun playing it, or if it annoys you too much, find another way to spend time.

    I haven't noticed any glaring multiplayer bugs yet. I have primarily played Escalation (because I suck against other humans).

    Doing the campaign got a little frustrating at times. On more than 3 occasions the game totally locked up and required me to manually shut my PS3 down. I got stuck in walls during transforming or jumping once in awhile too. I saw AI characters walk through walls (not spawn points) and a few other misc glitches.

    Still may favorite game right now, though.

    I've never noticed any bugs, sure there are some WTF moments when you think you should have killed them and they got you instead but they're hardly bugs.

    I'm not blaming the players... I am blaming the game. Unless you're not talking to me.

    --> Obvious sarcasm and the very meaning of the phrase Opticron Primal was using






    --> Your head.

    Those aren't bugs, just a combination of annoying strategies, headshots, and laggy hosts. You can't always be the guy with 25 kills, just do your best and keep practicing, leave when the game is laggy, and remember that if someone gets the drop on you and their aim is good enough you are going to get killed. Just respawn and try again. That is the nature of FPS games.

    the dying in one hit...who is doing it. Scouts can be cracked out that if they hit you while invisible they mess you up, especially from behind.

    I have killed with one tank shot with my tank, usually it is because i get a domed.
