I was lucky enough to use geno twice today, and to hold it on another map.

Where it spawns in a known place, e.g. Missile Wars,
Getting - St if there is a gm, cl/gm otherwise. You might as well be quick, doubt it's vital. Don't be afraid if there is someone on the last jump on the other side, they are an easy target. If you have geno and there is someone on one of the near three pillars, go for it. I see it a lot. If you went foward, just keep going, you'll probably get someone on the way in. If you go back/sideways, pyramids are a common choice.

Protection - Laser from laser room (as soon as they drop cl, and avoid the geno coming to you) as soon as possible. Often you can shoot them from the laser room when they jump off the first pillar. Gm can get geno from pretty much anywhere far forward enough, shockwave is still a use if you get near/under. If they fall off try using laser. If they go in pyramid use special bullet. Don't go out unless you have sb or gm.

On other maps like Two Tanks, you will randomly come across geno. It's so rare, I don't see people trying to get it. If you get it, I suggest going back to your base, possibly cannoning over. If an opponent gets it, just watch. It is very weak compared to your laser/gm/etc.

Wow.
Everybody seems to have "geno-plans" laid out.
When your LittleLep, you get Geno, hunt the worst player on the opposite team (score wise) and wait until hes in the open. Shoot maybe one shot and make him jump....[BOOM] +10 points :D

Edit: No offense to those at the bottom of the score charts ;)

Wow... thats just a bit massive. What is that? I also think it depends on the map.
