Swarm and K9 just suck sometimes. What're your suggestions?

#1SevenDayCandlePosted 4/19/2013 4:05:00 AM
If I'm just going for kills, a lot of times I'll run Lodestar, K9, Swarm. The lodestar is always good to me. The K9 and swarm are complete hit or miss though.... What would you suggest besides them? I don't like the VTOL much, I might try it though.

I was thinking, Warthog, Lodestar, VTOL... Been using the Warthog a decent bit now, it's hit or miss, but usually better than the Searm or K9....

If I'm just going to help out the team and such, I run something like VSAT, EMP, Warthog. Or just replace the warthog with something else...

Lodestar, 112 uses for 1082 kills. (9.66 kills per use)
Stealth Chopper, 146 used, 572 kills. (3.9 KPU)
Swarm, 62 used, 595 kills. (9.6 KPU)
AGR, 49 used, 124 kills. (2.53 KPU)
K9 Unit, 36 used, 259 kills. (7.2 KPU)
Escort Drone, 22 used, 90 kills. (4.09 KPU)
Warthog, 12 used, 66 kills. (5.5 KPU)

Lodestar is definitely my favorite, the AGR is just pure trash lol. I just feel the Swarm and K9 don't really do enough when I get them. Sometimes they'll get 15 kills, othertimes they get 3 kills. VTOL I only used 3 times for a total of 14 kills, so I don't really have enough uses of that for a base on that.

Just trying to find the right setup. Idk if the Swarm and K9 are worth that many points. If I run Lodestar as my highest streak, what would you guys suggest for the others?

UAV-Lightning Strike-Sentry is actually very effect for Dom and doesn't require anywhere near the effort of required for the top streaks. Sentry can be useless if th other team is spamming EMP but I've found that nearly all of the top streaks aside from Lodestar can be just as ineffective in a lot of games. I just don't like taking myself out of the game.

"U MAD?", "Get good" & "Use x perk" are legitimate responses to everything.

K9 underperforms in kills, but what it does do is kill people sitting in buildings who are hiding from your Lode or Swarm. For killwhoring I always go VSAT + K9 + Swarm or VSAT + Lode + Swarm. For lower streaks, Lightning Strike + VSAT + Escort Drone

Yea, my typical Killwhore setup is the VSAT, K9, Swarm. Just depends on the map too. Not gonna use the K9 on something like Turbine or Carrier...

Sentries are too hit or miss for me...

Make sure your not calling them intogether theyll steal kills from each other. One of the nastiest setups ive found is call dogs followed by vtol. They have so much trouble shooting you down and set the vtol on their spawns

1 C4 = dead AGR. I run into a ridiculous amount of C4 and EMP spammers anyway... Waste of a streak, that and the Dragonfire.

I would hate to be in those lobbies. But to be fair if you up against a good team then most of the streaks are useless
