Invisible bullet is a great flag!

Here's Dutchri's stance on this topic:

Usage

* Use ricochet to spray bullets to an opponent from behind a structure. They'll have no idea they're about to die.
* Spray your bullets towards concentrations of enemy tanks.

Beware

* Do not underestimate this flag. Most players totally rely on their radar for incomming bullet detection.
* Veteran players will never turn their back to a tank with IB, so it's all or nothing against such a player. Good bet is their flag is better than yours.

Yes, but the problem is that in most situations you're by yourself when you're phantom, so it's worthless... while it's fun to watch n00bs shoot at you, the only practical use is camping by a teleporter.

However, in a situation where a lot of people are phantom, it could be pretty fun.
Optimism is just a milder alternative to denial.

Steamroller is not as bad as everyone says. I personally killed 3 guys with Steamroller when I was playing ducati-style with flags.

My favorite move is to get it so they're chasing you around a building, then suddenly reverse right at a corner so they run into your tank and die. So far, that move has never failed me.

Obviously, it doesn't work against Super Bullet or OO.
And then, as we aimed at each other, in the moment of truth, I knew...

that someone had stolen my wallet.
