There is no armor difference between the MAXs annymore. Was stated by a dev (silverfrost on psu irc). Theres also several screenshots that proves it..


Annyways, the TR MAX does damage.... It dosn't do the damage on the first shot but over time it will most likely do more damage than the NC MAX.

cant really tell that for sure unless you are a beta tester but then youll be violating your NDA. Right now tho i think we can make the assumption tht NC and TR AI maxs are just about equal

hmm well, but the Vs Max has the advantage of jetpacks.
Assuming a 1on1 situation with a locked Tr max, the Vs max iss gonna win, b/c he'll jump behind the Tr max, and has advantage then.

Hrmmmm...I had heard that you can't get MAX's at AMS's anymore, too, but then the new vehicle descriptions came and I ain't sure anymore...

Type: Advanced Mobile Station
Role: Supply depot and spawn point
Primary Weapon: None
Occupants: 1
Handling: Very Poor

The Advanced Mobile Station is the lynchpin in many attack strategies. Once driven to a location and deployed, the AMS allows soldiers to store their patterns at its respawning tubes for quick redeployment after death. It also carries a full Equipment Terminal allowing soldiers to reequip in the field. When deployed, the AMS automatically cloaks beyond a short distance in order to better shield it from enemy troops.
According to that it still has a full terminal. So....*shrugs*

when a TR MAX is anchored, does that completely abolish manuveraility. Or can you still turn around etc. Becuase the VS MAX could always jump behind an anchored TR max and fire away.

The TR MAX has a limited turning ability when anchorerd... something along 60 degrees total. Annyways, anchoring/de-anchoring dosn't take long, by the time the VS MAX lands the TR MAX will be unanchored and turned around hehe.

No, Im not beta
I seriously think that when you are only doing 1-2 armor pts per shot your gonna HAVE to be locked to compete with somebody doing 40-50 with each shot. You need a firing rate of 25-50X faster then the NC. And you have to either get through his shield (1/2 his fire rate, so 12-25X now) or face his full fury before he takes you out.

Course, TR locked might get enough fire rate to compensate.

Mostly will depend on how good the NCs aim is. If he only hits the TR 50% of the time you can consentrate on hitting him instead of just S&P and likely win. But when locked he aint gonna be missing too much.

+ and - for all strategies as SJ has said constantly.

yes you definatly are right, but the shield sucks away stamina. Now im not sure what no stamina in this game does but im guessin itll affect you. AND, anchored down we get increased fire rate. So figure in the movies i see TR fire very fast. so really the battle would b about equal depending mostly on the player. But like i said. We cant make an asumption yet, just have to wait till beta or release day.



I will defintly be testing out oth max's

again sorry for spam but i think they should release a movie of the NC MAX firing some shots. The most iv even seen o an NC MAX is hmm dieing in a SN by a TR or running out of a base complex in the trailor. Iv never seen one fire yet. So i dont think anyone except testers know what the fire rate for the NC is.


wow bad typing sorry, hmm=him o=of

That and the TR one is out of armor and has 61 health left. But in the other screenshot he just wasted a NC MAX in the same general area, so the VS one is also fighting a softened-up target.
