Smoke post Marauder Buff...a sign of things to come for all vehicles?


The GroundPounder has a pretty incredible rate of fire, as well. It can be used to saturate an area and can really destroy enemies in that area. When used against vehicles, it doesn't do huge damage in a single hit, but its high rate of fire (three per second) combined with the increased ammo counts (clip size increased from 20 to 50 and your ammo box changed from carrying 50 mortar shells to 100 mortar shells) should allow you to freely utilize this weapon in the manner it was intended. (NOTE: The clip size and ammo box changes are coming in the patch after next.)
The bolded part shows the increases in clip size and ammo box size. 200% increase is incredible. I can't wait to see the numbers for all empire vehicles.

I wouldn't hold my breath for ammo increases in the mag for the other buggies. Increasing the mag isn't as much a buff as its a fix. They increased the refire rate x3, decreased the splash by half and reduced the damage of that weapon by 3x whitout increasing the ammo in the mag so it could actually fire for more than 5 seconds or so.

I'd be more exited bout the increases in torque that SJ mentions and other changes (deci going AV).

Deci changes are stupid. I'd prefer to see the addition of a single shot Deciesque weapon, one more powerful then the deci, but only effective against vehicles.

Yay for the TR I guess...even though I'll be on the recieving end...

As long as they are fixing ammo boxes, how about showing the skyguard some love. Damn thing eats ammo faster than a personal shield eats stamina.

And while I'm thinking of it, didn't they say they would be resizing the AV ammo to make the weapon more attractive to carry by eating less of our inventory for those oversized boxes.

Well now suddenly AV will be the must-have cert, but what good is that. They shouldn't be messing with things like that this late in the game's life, unless it's a purely *positive* change for all players, like the vehicle cert thing. Dammit. I am really pissed about this.

Worthless

The Thumper is one of the most versitile weapons in the game. I often carry one loaded with EMPs for all those occasions you come across the random vehicle running from a tower, or that overly mined CY. Not to mention the suppression factor you get using it with Plasma in secondary mode at a backdoor.

Kickass about the Buggies, those have always been my favorite vehicles. I am currently certed in assault buggy because you can drive it in Rexo and the Marauder bringing 3 Rexos to a tower = asskick (much better than that gay surgile mosquito hotdrop)

However the Decimator change sucks. It does nothing at all for AV and nerfs SA in the process. Now everyone will cert in AV just to carry a decimator and Still Ignore Empire AV weapons because they suck
