Etrons Multiplayer suggestions
 
i just wanted to make a post and let you know what works for me...

MP9... its the shit. period. i used to be a MTAR21 guy, but after the MP9 i wont go back. Its just as accurate from long range (and honestly, none of the maps are wide enough to need a long range weapon) and its lighter and easier to use... the submachine gun genre is one that is often neglected but great to use...

also, for those that load up on armor, not the greatest idea. I typically play with shoulder and leg and thats it...the more armor, the slower you are, and if you go for head shots, it wont matter if the guy is wearing a tank...

the general principle for this game is to get to a defensive position as fast as possible... and get the other team as they scurry to their spots...the less armor the quicker you are...seconds count.

MAP Specific Suggestions:
Kill House
:
1) Sniper kit. Run up the stairs from the start and go to the middle level, peek out and make sure your aim is down the corridor and wait 2 seconds. if a head pops out, shoot it. wait two seconds and if no more heads pop out move up the stairs halfway and scope their roof, shooting anything that moves.

2) sub machine gun kit. immediately run up the stairs to the roof and then through the doors and down onto the middle level of the house. Check the windows and doorways..you can easily pick off guys below you and above you from this vantage point... guys that are below you usually will not check above...

3) Remember if you go down the side with no walkway above it to toss gernades over the middle barrier, this can be good for a few quick kills...for the ballsier player, running through the middle and making a quick turn you can get the guys that are posted up on the other end...

Calypso Casino:

1) if you are alpha team, this is pretty simple. They are two points of entry for them to get to the middle level (or casino). They can come up the escalator or up the back door. Half the team should post up on either and wait. The ballsier player can do this...from the spawn head straight to the fast ropes in the escalator. Enter from the back door (nearest the helipad)..walk through the door with the straps and go right to the nearest fast rope. immediately fast rope down, hit a to open the door and b to start throwing the grenade down the escalator. This has to be timed just right. If you get held up at any point you will need to hold up and assume a defensive position.

2) Bravo team is at a major disadvantage as far as spawn is concerned but they can do some great camping and C4ing if they want. The idea on this map is that you work together as a team. there are only two ways down. If they are both covered correctly you wont have to worry about being shot in the back. C4 is a nice way to get the guys rushing down stairs. but patience is the key to winning on bravo team.

Streets
1) everyone loves to camp the spawn on streets... i think its a bad idea, unless you are playing with some noobs... from Alpha spawn, my suggestion is to drop down to the lower levels and run to the stairs that head out to the middle, take an immediate left and climb up the rope on the left building..clear it out (there may be a guy there) and head to the end of it and take out the camping assholes on the bottom left and the top left of the spawn...they usually do not expect it...chuck grenades and incendiaries up there to keep them back as your team moves in for the kill...now if there is a guy up there and he kills you, next round stand to the right of the top right window in your spawn and scope the doorway on the left side. He will expect you to be there again and might bring a friend. easy kills. (make sure you are not right on the doorway, stand back a bit)

2) over all the basement is not a good idea either. Bravo has a good basement spawn but you never know where the guys are...clear this out with a team member, one on each side of the wall...i highly recommend using the side buildings...

3) a cheap route, but use the sniper kit and sit in the back of your spawn (at the top). its dark back there and very difficult for the other team to see you...if you use a sniper make sure you have the glock 18 equipped for some close range encounters...



well i have to get back to work, but if this is helpful ill do the other maps too... im not bragging, but i dont lose a lot of team survival..

;) Agreed. Just gotta wait for a mod to come along and do it now I think :p

Good stuff Etron

Fartmaster UEO 12-18-2006 03:49 PM

Pinseeker might be able to stick it :woop: he looks in these forums all the time good shit anyways

Tron 12-18-2006 03:57 PM

ill throw some more up after lunch... i hope you fuckers dont try to use this shit against me...:)

Webb 12-18-2006 04:00 PM

I will when I start to play it man :p

Oh and highpas... " Damn those lazy buggers! ;)" :eek: lol

highpass 12-18-2006 04:00 PM

Oh no way erton, the thought didn't even cross my mind...

I will print this out and pin it next to my TV, just in case, though.

Ahh I don't know what you're on about Webb.. honestly, making things up now are ya?! sheesh. (bollocks, thought i'd gotten away with that!).

Tron 12-18-2006 05:29 PM

Cont'd

Dante's
1)Alpha team... go straight through the door into the open area and head straight across to the far door..open and continue to the right door...here is where you have to make a decision. The door on the left opens unto the casino floor...not a great idea, there are turrents up the left and windows straight ahead as well as ground level shooters...if you dont want to risk giong up the stairs, i would snake cam this door first and assess the situation...now if you want to get to the action, go the stairs and frag halfway up through the door on the second floor...if its clear procede. You have on your left, stairs that go down to the floor, be wary of these, and a hallway up to the left...this hallway usually haves a bunch of guys, lean over and prepare to return fire...this is a nice place to chuck grenades...

all in all, dantes is one of my least favorite maps... its pretty big and has a lot of closed places so make sure you frag long hallways, bravo team has a lot of spots in their spawn to hide behind..

I heard the goggles are bullet proof and the helmet protects against head shots.

As a long time Rainbow player I disagree with a lot of your strategies but i guess to each their own. Also sub machine guns are being used a lot in this rainbow and nothing else (with the exception of shotguns). I do agree though that the less armour the better usually.

Tron 12-19-2006 12:35 PM

i usually restrict shotguns, i think they are a bit cheap...you can disagree all you want, no big deal, these are strategies that work for me... four out of five games are victories for me...

absolutehell 12-20-2006 12:15 AM

Srry I didn't mean it as an attack towards you, I was just being my normal negative self and commenting.

eXiled Killah 12-20-2006 02:48 AM

Love the title dude. Was that intentional?:p

Tron 12-20-2006 12:26 PM

was what intentional. i am E Tron 3k. a gaming robot from the future sent to present to maintain high levels of video gaming for generations to come.

Why the MP9?

Just wondering at first, I used the MP5N, which wasnt bad. Than I used the UMP45, for about a day, and liked it a lot as well. Then I used the MP9, and I also like it. I also unlocked the MP7A1, which seems like the gun that a lot of good players use...

Just wondering why the MP9 is the best eventhough in the stats its not as good...?

Tron 12-26-2006 08:46 PM

i should comment that i have changed my opinion to the MP7A1...it has a 40 bullet clip with one in the chamber making it pretty handing in close combat shoot outs...the p90 for that matter has 50...its all a matter of preference...

single shot with a rifle scope is pretty damn acurate too...

and as far as the stats go i wouldnt pay too much attention to them... the range really doesnt matter since the maps arent that big...

EDIT: I have also decided to go Armor Free...it feels great... you move pretty damn fast and is highly encouraged for those rushers out there...

DJAd 12-28-2006 11:25 PM

I've been using the MP5. Think ill try out some of your suggestions. I keep getting ripped on the multi player so time to change my gun.

What scopes do you tend to use?

Maka 12-29-2006 12:36 AM

I'm going to steel some of ertons fame, and I'll answer your question. Laser Sight is Useless... Reflex Scope is probably the best all around scope. Very good for medium range and accirate shots. The Scope Sight, would probably only be best for a couple of the bigger maps where you try to snipe or go a little further whith the shot. As for Snipers themselves always go with the 6x,12x since you have both in one...

In the end, it all depends on how you play, If you run a lot, get into the other players face's and find yourself in shoot-outs a lot, the reflex is probably best for you. If you like to sit back, Camp and just chill, and find yourself watching others, try the scope sight...

rifle scope but the guns are less acurate if you use a scope...(they still work well) but you may find with a little practice that you will use the scope for sighting purposes and use the recticle more than not.

@maka.... i think the reflex scope is worthless...

coolwhitedeluxe 12-29-2006 04:11 PM

Erton, I just wanted to say my roommate and I have followed a few of your suggestions and I've definitely noticed a sizeable improvement. Thanks for all your advice. Still a looong way to go to get elite but the game has become more fun now.

Tron 12-29-2006 04:25 PM

jump in a game with me sometime... i would like to believe that playing with me helped mario out a bit...

i consider myself a good team player... covering and such...

glad to hear this helped.

Helped me out bunches. thanks bud:) oh yea erton is a KILLER with that MP7A1 we played streets and EVERYTIME right at the start he kills someone

Dark Fury 12-31-2006 11:32 AM

Thanks for the games last night, Erton and co. :)

Tron 01-02-2007 12:18 PM

it was good to see so you in the game... you were getting me with those nades near the end there....argghh...

SOfresh 21 01-02-2007 11:45 PM

I dont know if you said this yet Erton but i suggest that people dont stack up a whole lot of armor, it doesnt help. Most people aim head shot. All you really need is a little bit of armor on the chest and thats about it man. You dont really need to stack up like a freggin tank. It dont help.

thats what he said.... friggin tank haha....* except the chest armor i dont use ANY armor and i get out of most if not all firefights alive *

but erton tonight was a BLAST! it was funny when i was behind you and you just turned around killed me and said "come on im not an idiot" that was HILARIOUS!

Tron 01-03-2007 12:17 PM

yeah, that was funny shit... it was library, 5-5 in a 12 man room... me and Mario were the last ones, which has come to be somewhat normal... i checked the stats to see who was left...mario...sob... so then i am running around trying to get him to notice me on the map and then this guy tries to run up behind me..lol... soon as he turns the corner i blast the hell out of him with mp7a1.... funny shit...

i was thinking of a clan prefix last night, you know like the KMA boys.. .what about OTG? for On the Ground... so everytime we kill someone we yell GET ON THE GROUND... lol...marinate.

I N64 I MaRiO 01-21-2007 07:21 AM

alright, just found probrably the best Assault Rifle in the game...on 6x scope single shot AK-47 <--- best Rifle in the game.. can compete with a sniper but Full Auto blows... if someone is right near you just tap Right Trigger and single shot the shit out of them...the only map i have problems with is on calypso casino, team survival, on bravo spawn... but thats only bravo spawn..
its funny cause i was trying to mess around and use an AK to fuck with people but it turns out, it teh best:uzi:

Butters 01-21-2007 08:29 PM

Your wisdom is wise like a very wise man. I appreciate your wisdomosity.
