Co-op General Strategies + Tips

Post  gl0wstick on Wed May 26, 2010 4:45 pm

Armor:
Armors with high speed/jump but low shielding is a bad choice when participating in Co-op matches.
When playing in Co-op it is best to use armors with high shielding and targeting, for example, the Assault.
The drones will barrage you with everything so you must have a sturdy armor.
For armors that have cloaking abilities, drones will notice you less, that is, if your not moving.
Recommended armors - Tanker, Assault, or Sentry

Weapons

No doubt about it, the best weapon to use in Co-op is the Vaporizer. Battle drones move really slow, so they are quite easy to hit. Vaporizers also have decent accuracy.
Another weapon that is very effective in Co-op are the Launchers(Rocket Launcher, Titan, Rocket Launcher AP). They do a great amount of damage and, they also have the ability to splash damage.
Gravity Hooks are effective as well, power-ups/loot dropped by battle drones disappear if you don't get them fast enough. Its also useful to get up onto those bridges where the drones attack from above. For example, Factory.
Another great weapon are the disintegrators (Anti-Matter Jet, Menacer) They're great for trapping the bots in their spawn places, like in court yard on the sides.
Un-Recommended Weapons for Co-op - PLASMA CANNON/DUALCANNON(-ish), Auto RIfles/Magrail, Menacer

Power-Ups

Grab any Power-Up that is dropped by the drones. Never wait for it to expire, they are all useful especially the Berserker Shield and Health Recharge.

Extra Info
Friendly Fire is off during Co-op Matches, however players can still be affected by each others weapons such as Rocket Launchers or Hellfires, for example a Hellfire might send your teammate flying but he won't lose any health.
It is also important not to take the drops if you have no energy. There is no point in taking them, might as well let your partner keep them.

about drops, they are person specific (except credits) for instance if we played and you got a permanent magrail or somthing then i could go ZOMFG DIS NYUGGA GOTS DA MAGRA1L I WILL TAKE CUZ I AM NOOB but if i run over the briefcase then nothing would happen Evil or Very Mad you can always tell whos it is by looking at the color: green purple or gold (this is in order of rarity too) are all yours where as a grey case is your teammates

One thing I would note is that teamwork is important, which is why I only play with my friends. Sometimes we discuss strategies we will use ingame before hand. one thing we have found success with is having one person- the vaporizer user, stay back and snipe drones while the other- preferably one who has tanker/assault/infantry, gets right in the drones face with a Rl/titan/hf. the tanker deals massive amounts of damage but dies a lot. this allows the vaporizer to quickly snipe the weakened drones with his vaporizer. it seems as though its an uneven strategy allowing the vaporizer to get more loot, but actually it evens out because the "vaporizer" gets less kills.

Out of all the mods I think unseen protecter sounds
The coolest. It's also good for sentry because it helps it's cloak
To catch up with sniper- but sniper could also benefit from
The mod because it's shielding is low
