    Has anybody else experienced lop-sided damage ratios?

    As a scout, I'll hit somebody directly like 20 times in vehicle mode then lob a grenade and they will survive and hit me ONCE and I die!! WTF is that about?

    Scout grenades don't cause damage.

    If the Scout is using Mark Target and Backstab, it could a lot of damage. Or if anyone makes a headshot, especially with the Null Ray it's good night lol.

    Scouts EMP grenades only stun, they cause no damage.
    Plus a Scout has only 4 bars of Energon, they're fairly frail.
    Also, there are a host of other abilities that could be effecting the outcome.
    They could have Flak armor that reduces explosive damage or have another
    ability that does more damage.

    Short story is, if you're getting scrapped pick another class/build for the fight.

    On another note, what are you doing firing vehicle guns as a scout? Getcher skidplate invisible and start shankin' mofos, pronto!

    True, the Scout's alt form weapons are weak. They're only really good for shooting as you chase down your foes. Cloak and Mark target are your friends.

    What's worse is the magic medium range EMP Shotgun, I'm two car lengths away and two shots to a soldier and their are dead.

    I've fallen victim to this too. I'm blasting sway at somebody with an Ion Blaster at close range, while a few shots from them nearly kills me. And don't get me started on when someone sneaks up on me and kills with a close range shotgun or melee in one or two hits. I swear this game needs a map or at least a better indicator when someone's behind you.

    I don't know. While it definitely sucks being sneaked up on, I for one love being the guy sneaking up on someone so that I could decloak and melee their afts.

    I was wondering this too. I died in 1 HIT from a normal melee multiple times. I meleed a guy 3 times and survived. Hit me once and died. I've died from one hit from a shotgun from an un-powered guy multiple times. I think the game just hates me. Oh wait, there is weird programming, glitch whatever, a guy's melee weapon might not touch you and miss by like an inch but it STILL hits.
