This was my second round ever on CM I was on the frontlines there where a couple of runners infront of me so I took out a nade and I clicked on it to activate since this was my second round I did not know the when you activate the grenade it sets it to throw for you so I quickly click the throw button on my screen then I clicked towards the aliens and then I realise that it was already on throw but by the time I did realise my hand got blown off and I was xeno food.

Today I tried to kill a xeno with a cap gun.

Spawned in cryo after xenos has breached the almayer, specifically cryo, hurridly grab the first gun I see, and when a xeno comes to me I open fire with everything I have to try to save myself.

Except it was a toy.

I was trying to fire against a runner with a RPG loaded with white phospherous, one crusher appeared from nothing and I fired at him, he was about 2 meters from me in the caves of LZ, about 5 marines got burned to death, the Crusher somehow survived.

During assault there was a smartgunner in front, my weapon is on burst fire mode, I fired and the gunner caught all my shots.

was with a group of lads, a queen screeched up the north but didn't get me, I charged forward intending to throw as much lead as I can into the xeno horde

..only to throw my gun because I had throw intent on for some reason.

Tried to throw a grenade at a charging xeno hoard only to get spit on and drop the nade in my lap and blow up. Then I got dragged off to the nest to get face raped.

I'm not entirely certain I've been solely responsible for any single kill since I started playing.

Besides killing my teammates.

I mean I've had assists and have done well in a group and such but I dunno...embarrassing.

Oh. Another thing. After a marine major on big red I found the lethal injections planetside and shot one up.
Only to have the round extended with a major UPP boarding party. Instead of helping repel the attack I watched as three different medics puzzled over what I had oded on. I looc chatted and told them what had happened so they wouldn't waste their time but they seemed determined to revive my severely poisoned dumbass.

I was a Combat Engineer, it was the first ride down on the Alamo to LV-624 and this dumb Marine was shooting at people with a shotgun. I was going to shoot him dead to prevent further death you know? Turns out that I didn't switch from my UGL after loading HIDP during prep. Yep. I fired. I lit everyone on that side of the dropship on fire.

I killed myself and three others squadmates that day.

I was an MP, and I was doing good and we had to guard a nuke, but it failed. There were aliens so I was going to be like Saving Private Ryan when the rangers threw mortar rounds at the Germans, so I did that, but the Marines got in my way, and I ended up FFing 3 marines.. We had to flee back to the Almayer I got pissed at the CO, I asked the mods if we can do a mutiny, but I didn't know he said no. So me and a doctor killed the CO, took his ID card, and me and another guy allowed evac, it worked; however, with cosmic justice I got massacred by aliens and I deserved it. That had to be the most fucking illegal thing I had done on CM, and I really regret it... I am practically not the shining choir boy at this point, and my time playing this server is on a thread, if I fucked up. I will be gonzo... So, I just going to go marines for every round until around 1-2 months. Since, I don't know how to read the rules, and I am not prepared of playing a CO role, of that. Yes, I got banned for it for 3 days, and I really need to show up my game, or I will the fate which I know will happen.

I remember being either a Young or Mature Runner, mid-round, pounce on a heavily injured marine, try to claw at his hands.

Turns out I had help intent on.

I proceeded to caress the guy 5 times before he blew me to bits with a submachine gun.

That was the day I had ever felt the most disappointed of myself in my entire time of SS13, especially considering the fact that I literally shouldn't had even had help intent on as a xeno.

Help intent sometimes is useful, like when you are running between marines as Runner with Help intent to cause FF/escape.

About a week back, Xeno round as an Ancient Hunter. Murdered a few people in lower medbay, go for a drive-by slash on a survivor and proceed to utterly misclick so the most i do is give a deep batman stare before getting buckshotted to oblivion by an MT.

I'm sitting in the FOB telling people to stay in the FOB, because our orders are to stay in the FOB. Everyone is staying in the FOB. But the SO (ignoring our orders from the XO) is ordering a charge, despite there being no enemies to speak of. They were all underground. After getting bored of the round, and the stupid orders, I solo charged, because I was following orders.

When I was new I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out what a webbing is, as I thought I heard "web-ring", so I was googling military web-rings and freaking out in game trying to do my job. Well, this was back during The SuperMatter, tl;dr, it blew up the ship because I was in google looking up military web-rings.

Besides the usual ff incidents this one comes to mind:

Trying to hold the northeast corner of lz1 on ice. Have the genius idea to drag a fueltank up so the next xeno push could get a little surprise, I position it in a corner but some other marine pushes it 1 tile away. I tried to pull it again to move it back in place, grab dead xeno body instead and move it over a claymore only to instantly explode me, the fuel tank and atleast 1 other marine.

Well, I once spat neurotox at a predator in hopes of stunning it.

And as a marine i once while clearing weeds hit myself with my own rifle that had a bayonet, and had to go off to the sulaco because i got internal bleeding
