Re: overpowered, overplayed, best class/weapon, please nerf!?!?! =(
To rebel: Its not because I haven't been dive bombed by 5 guys all at once that I haven't seen the worst of it, and believe me.. I have seen teams full of dive bombers. Its nothing to be really worried about. If anything when I look at a team filled with dive bombers.. I'm sad for them, I'm sad that they can't seem to spread out and try new things, that they can't come up with an original loadout.
The fact that 2-5 people are divebombing you doesn't make the glider rig Overpowered... its just 2 people divebombing you, if they hit.. you're supposed to die.
The guns aren't overpowered because there's 5 people shooting you all at once, you're supposed to die when that happens.. Sure you can't hatchet kill the 2 dive bombers at once.. but you can kill one of them... and that's one less to worry about. And after throwing it at the first guy you can rush under the second one. If your plan is to stand right in front of your Air Space Denier, then no wonder he's going to kill you with bullets.. that's where he was looking towards when he was flying most of the cases. Make sure you're behind him when he gets stuck in it, same as when you boomerang people.
Stunned or not, mighty body types aren't a joke to be taken head on.. unless they really don't know how to shoot at people. They also can't shoot you when you're inside buildings.. when they can't see you. Stalk them.. use your teammates as bait for them to dive bomb, then surprise them for the kill when they're weak and vulnerable. Most dive bombers are so dive happy they won't even worry about dive bombing in an area where there's no way for them to get back in the air right away.
Stay away from areas with air vents as its where they'll be most of the time, if there's cover there.. use an item like goggles to spot them as they come for some air time and shoot them down before they can fly off. Or just wait for them with another gadget handy, and get them good. Perhaps use the bear trap near air vents to get them stuck as they walk to it.. they likely won't even notice it as they run for it to get airborne then they're easy picking. Use the can of beans when they dive bomb you.. if they miss you they'll end up straight in your cloud.. taking dmg every so often and being somewhat disabled.
Got yourself some smoke bombs? Unless they actually know what they're looking for.. they'll never dive bomb what they 'can't see' most dive bombers don't look for the signs of a cloaked enemy and they'll just keep on flying, pick your targets and you'll have an easier time against the dive bombers.
Dive bombing isn't OP, its basically an easy beat all solution, and most dive bombers aren't ready to deal with things when they can't dive bomb them.. use that to your advantage.
