how oddjob is a cheap character to use in multiplayer?? i havnt played this game since it came out way back when, but i read game informer (magazine) regularly and they make a few references to oddjob from this game being an unfair character to play as...also while looking through the boards here, i saw someone say "the third civilian is the best in multiplayer"

so...how is any one character better than the others?

Maybe some people just don't like Oddjob as a character...

Oddjob is shorter than any other characters. This makes him harder to hit.

Yes, the short stature of Oddjob is why people have given him the title of a "cheap" character. But that doesn't compare to how cheap he was in Nightfire. Anyone who plays as him there will have a large advantage. His razor blade hat is made into a weapon, a OHKO weapon at that, with amazing accuracy. I could throw a hat from one side of the level, all the way to the other side and somehow it'd hit the person.

After a while, he was "outlawed" when my friends played multi due to his shortness.

He's almost as bad as those damn monkies in timesplitters. If Goldeneye had online multiplayer I guarantee you 85% of everyone would pick oddjob.

unless you are playing with auto aim off I found that it was very easy to get headshots on oddjob since his head was around the height of a normal players chest, where the auto aim usually went for.

Auto aim is for skubs. So is playing with the radar on. We only play with these 2 off.

Please, Nick Nack was the worst in nightfire-he was literally at other players knees.
