PSA: stop attacking the dropship turrets from the sides

Post by Reuben Owen » 09 Jan 2017, 18:15

this is about those times when the xenos are about to assault the sulaco and they're destroying the turrets before they leave

some xenos try to be cool and attack the turrets from off the ship, on the left and right
when you do that, they try to shoot you
however, if there is a xeno in the middle with the dropship console it will start to target THEM as they are closer even if they aren't normally within the target radius
if there are no xenos trying to slash the turrets from the sides, the xenos slashing them from the middle will be safe

lately I've been seeing rounds where xenos lose anywhere from 1-4 of their number just from this, sometimes its even T2s and T3s

stop it and have some patience, let those in the middle do it

to reiterate, don't even look at those turrets unless you're in the middle of the dropship
I play Xeno 99% of the time. All castes.

I think it's funny when that happens but yeah, don't do it.

This, like suffo-killing monkies, is one of those things a baldie xeno does every game, consistently.

Bonus points if it's a T3 who hid in the hive all game and basically just wasted the slot for 90 minutes.

This is still a thing. Please stop attacking the turrets from the sides and just be patient.
Troublesome, as usual.

I just use something truly impervious to bullets and wait till a turret blows up from too much FF
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.
