Thoughts on thruster pac?

I have found it to be actually useful when closing on enemies and juking ghost. Anyone else finding ways to implement it creatively or efficiently?

It's just a bad version of Evade. You kind of flop to one side in whatever direction you press like a limp dick, accomplishing nothing.

If it actually had some range, and didn't take eight hours to go through it's animation, it'd be worth using. But as it is, I get more mileage from the other AAs.

Perfect for people who don't rely on an AA every 5 seconds and just need a subtle advantage to get away from a firefight, sword lunge, etc.

For baddies who spam camo and hologram, it's a terrible AA

its good for turning corners quickly and can save your life multiple times every match if you know how to use it

you can also juke with it pretty well

Use it in the middle of sprint to immediately propel yourself to one side. Great for when an enemy suddenly emerges from a far corner, wanting to DMR you.

Its dash distance is based on your movement speed. So with Speed Boost its pretty nifty. Without Speed Boost its kinda like jerking in one direction about 3 feet.

Give humans the incredible Flood version and it might be worth using.

Its distance is perfect, but the animation needs to be way quicker. Also it could be given an vertical effect when you jump at the same time you use it.

So when I shoot a hologram that you evade from and my buddy who was cloaked assassinates you we're being baddies right :P

Speed boost seems to be its best use, aside from giving you an extra 3 feet or so to the end of a jump if you're trying to escape someone by hopping above or over something they can't. Other than that, its pretty crap at close range without the boost. Doesn't evade the sword or the hammer like it ought to.
