What things do you do to trick them?

Post by Ardent_Silver » Mon Jan 16, 2006 2:57 pm

This may be already posted, but I'm too much of a lazy bastard to search. Anyway, my one thing is when they're out of sight on a building, I go backwards, so it looks like I'm going away from them and can't see them. Of course, they come down for me, and land on my bullets. ¬_¬

what i do

Post by -shadow- » Mon Jan 16, 2006 4:22 pm

If someone is on a building and i am at the foot of it.
I go straight up to it then jump. it takes them by surprise and they dont know when to shoot. im out of their view withing a split second.
i shoot them b/c i am ready for it. :wink:

I am the master at Laser camping. Sit on a corner block at any of the Planet Mofo servers, just wait for people to jump, then I snipe. not really a trick, but it annoys some people to get shot out of the sky.

laser

I do that sometimes. it is a nice trick. I love laser!
another trick of mine is:
if i am running away from an opponent, i go to a wall. they follow me, and i shoot the wall and jump. they get hit by the ricochet!

My favorite trick:

- choose a tank.

- go behind him (thanks to a st flag, or a wall, or maybe is the tanker a bit blind, or has't noticed he had a radar...)

- when close enough, shout BRAAAAAAA !!!

My childs all wake up, my wife asks for divorce, and my tank is destroyed. But this trick is the only one nobody will steal to me :D

Try and tell me after.

I wait for people to do this while i am on top of the building. The tank on the building *always* has the upper hand if the driver is paying attention.

The cardinal rule of bz strategy is "always let the other guy jump first."

The tank on top can shoot and jump after the lower tank has started to jump and by the time the lower tank is high enough to shoot it has eaten the gumball from the higher tank, and has no hope of shooting it. The only risk for the higher tank is that it could miss.

Sometimes when I'm on a no-jump server, me and someone else will start chasing each other around and around a building. Sometimes I turn around and drive backwards to make it look on the radar like I'm still going around normally. But then if they come around the corner, they see the business end of my tank's gun and I blast 'em.

On H*A*S*H, if I have WG and I'm fighting someone with laser, I tease them into trying to jump and shoot me. But before they reached the needed height, I move and fire a whole buncha shots while they're defenseless.

This one has suckered me a couple of times, and I never remember to try it myself. Land on the side of a pyramid, below maximum jump height, and pretend to be stuck. Wait for someone to take the bait, then fall off the side and wait for the poor tank to land. :)

One trick I like is: I sit on top of a building with steamroller, and when anyone tries to jump close, I just drive forward a bit. Works like a charm.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.

When I'm facing off with someone, and we both miss each other and end up jumping without wings, I like to turn--just before the jump, so that when I land, I'm facing them, if that makes sense. Usually they just go straigtht and that way, I'm chasing them now.

If you jump towards each other, and you turn,and the opponent shoots, you are probably dead...

That is genius and I have used it on some rare occasions.

Sometimes I'll execute the pyramid-jump-shot: If I don't have wings, and I want to shoot at someone who's on a building that's above max jump height, then I'll land on the nearest pyramid so that my tank is facing their tank. Then I just jump and shoot. They're usually not expecting to get hit from a tank that's jumping up and down on a pyramid. I'm told it's hilarious to watch.

Nope nope. Depends on who jumped first. The tank that jumped first has the advantage. If he jumps first, then he is correct

Remember the rule of jumping. "he who is up, has the advantage. Unless he is falling"

If you jump first, you land first, you get to shoot first. if you are accurate, they will be forced to jump again.
Beware! I'm going to clone myself and spread those clones all over the world!

Here's a trick:

When facing wings get above ground, any building is fine. Dodge them until they are on the ground really close to you. When they jump, you jump forward while shooting. If they stay put in the jump they are killed by your first bullets. If they jump again, they are killed by your later bullets, since you jumped forward.

This used to work all the time for me, but my good opponents have caught on :cry:

well, as always, it depends on who your playing. but if you jump, it's nice to land with the advantage.
