Official Best/Worst Loadout Thread, SEASON FINALE: Soldier/Demo

#1BakedStuffEtcPosted 3/23/2011 10:38:04 PM

- Rocket Launcher
- Shotgun/Buff Banner/Battalion's Backup
- Equalizer

Direct Hit is decent, but nowhere near as versatile as the default. Black Box isn't even worth mentioning

- Rocket Jumper
- Gunboats
- Equalizer


- Battalion's Backup
- Half-Zatoichi

The buff charges fast as hell, and you can heal off damage taken by gettin kills


- Grenade Launcher
- Sticky Launcher/Sco-Res
- Half-Zatoichi/Caber

Default stickies on offense, Sco-Res on defense. Melee is preference and not really used ever anyway

- Loch N' Load
- Sticky Jumper
- Claidheamhor

Just awful

- Targe
- Eyelander/Half-Zatoichi

I use:

Soldier: Stock with Equalizer.

Demo: Stock with Caber.
I am POOR and IRISH.

^ Same, but with Zatoichis.
But I agree that a Norse god wouldn't have some crazy Japanese name for their attack. It'd be like "SWORDEN SLICEN" or something.

Best: RL/Shotty or the support banners if your team is good/Equalizer
Black box is okay for defense when there are choke points to spam and no medics on your team. DH is alright, but RL is better all around.

Worst: RJ/Gunboats/Pain Train on ctf, shovel on anything else
Even worse than the tc's.

Best: Vanilla on offense (with the exception of the caber ofc and I like the frying pan more than the bottle). ScoRes on defense.

Worst: LnL/Sticky Jumper/Skullcutter
Again, even worse than the tc's.
I've done it 3 times in one day, but I rarely finish, because it's messy, my girl decides when we're done.

Debatable. With the Shovel/Pain Train, at least your only damage output is reliable. What with the vulnerabilities, the Equalizer will rarely have time to get to full power before being killed to death, and the extra speed is negligible, because, y'know, Rocket Jumper

-Worst: LnL/Sticky Jumper/Skullcutter
Again, even worse than the tc's.

The Skullcutter's low speed would be mitigated by sticky jumping everywhere, and you end up getting more power. Claidheamh just makes you die faster, do normal melee damage, and you get no random crits. All for no real benefit

If there are medics then default RL, shotgun, samurai sword.

If not then Blackbox, shotgun, Samurai sword.

Never tried a buff banner build but once or twice. Most people I've encountered in game aren't worth the effort to help.

Blackbox is essential for pubbing. Samurai sword is also for healing independence. I've found the equalizer to be of limited use in pub play because the medic packs are always camped by people who don't really need them.
