It's OFFICIAL: Thruster Pack is useless

Some guy on a message board deems a certain item in a game is useless. Where have I heard this before?

i'm pretty sure that the left joystick does the exact same thing as thruster. perhaps its a little slower, but you can still run, shoot, crouch, grenade, jump, etc when you don't use the thruster. thruster is simply outclassed by the left control stick in almost every way.


This sums it up perfectly.

The only thing about the thruster is that I've heard you can slip out of assassinations by using it.

oh my. if this is true, then i take back what i said. it isn't entirely useless. i doubt its true because nobody defending thruster has mentioned it.

also, thruster in flood is definitely not useless

No, you just haven't figured out how to use it yet


you press the armor ability button, right?
ah, then i do know how to use it. still useless


Knowing how to activate it isn't the same as how to (properly) use it

Can't sprint backwards or side to side though.

Your welcome!

Now time for me to use thruster pack and blast out if this topic!

WHOOSH!

OH MY GOD I ONLY WENT ABOUT 2 FOOT, IM STILL HERE! GOD DAMMIT!


Hehe yes.



It is good when used very intelligently but mostly its bad, I have been destroying everything with the Jet Pack, whicb is funny since I figured it would just be a faster way for BKs to feed people headshots.

I don't want to agree with Golly for the sake of agreeing but I haven't seen a scenario where it really pushes me to think this ability warrants use over other abilities. If there is a "proper" use, please do post the best method you believe, I really want to know. I want to like this ability but it just felt so useless last night when I tried it.

I think it might be glitched. I feel like it moves you about as fast as normal walking.

Very strange. I can see absolutely no utility to this AA.
