what is the thruster pack good for?

I snuck up on a guy and was about to assassinate him when he turned around at the last second and stuck me as I hit him. He backpedaled while I sprinted toward him and he used thruster pack to go backward right before the grenade blew. He was still very close to me.

Apparently it's good for temporary invincibility to plasma grenades...

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING....(Say it again now)

People probably aren't using it right if you think its useless.
Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

It just doesn't have that much utility and is pretty situational

to get to the sniper first

I use it for oddball games, throw the ball and then thrust to an enemy and kill them quickly. Pick up the ball, proceed.

Check my fileshare. GT is o0Achilles0o. (those are little o's, then zeros)

There is a vid called Nice Double. Wouldn't have been possible without Thruster Pack.

It's definitely my favorite AA.

can duck behind cover while being invulnerable. its easily the best AA for that reason

It's situational, and the situations tend to be things that can be avoided if you are more cautious, or if you use other AA's. Turn a corner, and see something you don't like? Thruster Pack. At the same time you could have just used PV and seen that you shouldn't turn that corner. Vehicle trying to run you over from the rear? Thruster Pack at the last minute to avoid it. At the same time you could have just payed more attention at the radar and jumped without it nearly killing you. That's just two examples, but you can see what I mean.

With that said, I still love Thruster Pack and it's my go to AA. It is situational, but I tend to get myself into situations that tend to take advantage of it.
