what is the thruster pack good for?

I tried it out once in Flood mode, and the first time I used it it killed the guy when I collided with him so I thought it would be just as good in other modes. But it seems to be a waste so far. I can't find a good use for it (other then flood mode).

I want to move to a nice, quaint house in the suburbs with the T-Mobile girl and make lots of babies with her.

It can help with avoiding vehicles and making a quick close range maneuver to throw someone off but thats about it

*walks around a corner alone to find entire enemy team halfway down the hallway looking straight at him*

*thrusts back around the corner because it actually takes a moment to reverse momentum with just the movement stick*

*escapes/lives*

Good for cqc closing distance with a sword/hammer/shotgun/boltshot etc.

Some people swear by it, but I think it's the worst AA.

I'm never in any scenarios to utilize it.

I use it to troll enemys. They get my shields down... *thrust around the corner*

One use for it that I practice all the time:
In rifle duels that you may lose or will lose, thrust around the corner/rock next to you and live. Or jump back out and surprise them with the final headshot. I've done this numerous times.

Unless you're playing against Roger Clemens, Hardlight shield can be used for the exact same thing, and is safer and more reliable in the face of unseen obstacles.

Thruster is fairly useful with CQC weapons though, but I prefer Hologram for the shenanigans.

I have had it used against me a few times and the enemies avoided otherwise certain death. I think it can be good but it seems really hard to use.
