what do you think about the marine grenade launchers?
I am new to this game but i noticed those marine grenade launchers are tearing aliens to shreds its like plup plup plup plup kill kill kill kill personally i think its kinda overpowered i found myself getting ♥♥♥♥♥ while spawning, but thats not the only thing it doesnt require that much skill to actually kill enemies you dont have to aim for them you just need to spam some grenade and aliens will be meat.. i dont know lol i got frustrated with this, i dont mean anything about the game, the game is one of the best its unique.. those gl's are the problem..

Pretty sure it happened to you too, getting ♥♥♥ kicked with this style of play you can ambush yes but omce the realise it they start spamin that ♥♥♥♥ and you die

You ambush, get an attack in, then when they start spamming at their feet in an attempt to defend themselves, you run away until after you hear four explosions. Then go back in. They're pretty much helpless at that point since they need to reload.

Grenade launchers are usless in close combat, since grenades shot don't arm themselves until after a few meters of flight.

Unless you're in a Hive ♥♥♥♥♥♥ buildings, it's practically worthless.

Unless you can directly hit a lerk with the GL, it's worthless. I'm only been able to nail a Lerk in the face who's flying with a GL twice. It's a one hit kill (well was in my cases) but it's incredibly difficult.

GL IMO are only materially useful once you get JP or have someone to guard you.

GLs are really easy to take out once you get close to them. They're also pretty useless against lerks in many sitautions. If you want an easy tip in playing against GLs: stay off the ground. If you're on the ceiling then it's much harder to get killed by them.


seems true ill hold on to that tip thanks my friend

Shotguns, shotguns, shotguns, shotguns, shotguns. If every marine spent all his res on jetpacks, shotguns, mines and welders, aliens would lose every single game provided both have equal teams.

How to use your GL:
1) in order to ♥♥♥♥ing kill alien structures, that's the purpose of a GL
2) never go alone, because you're worthless in close combat
3) best coupled with a jetpack
4) shoot at packed alien stuff, either aliens healing close to a gorge, or a bunch of shells close to a hive, or a few whips with a crag

GL is a weapon of mass destruction, but only unskilled guys and morons use it to kill aliens (and they often poorly use it). As said before, the best combo is shotgun+jetpack+welder, because you can decimate alien lifeforms and the SG is still efficient against alien structures.

OP GL is just an illusion because you were playing on a 20+ people server :p

It seems like I get killed a lot with said granade launcher (while being the aliens), but yet when I go to use as a marine, I get killed really easily. lol, I guess I just need more practice with it...

If you follow this set of rules, I think the GL can be an asset to your team:

- only buy when jetpacks are available
- flee when your mates got bitten down and you are facing aliens alone (at least make it to a position that allows weapon recycling)
- when playing on 16-18 player servers, only ONE GL (same goes for the Flame Thrower). Rest of the team should get Shottie or stay with the Rifle (better at finishing off fleeing lifeforms)

I would say that GL can be very effective against gorge castles and if the alien comm made the mistake to pile up all the upgrades in one place.

Anyone remember the GL from the beta? It was attached to the Rifle, making it a straight upgrade (not a sidegrade like it is now). That was crazy OP!

A "GL is OP" thread - I've seen everything now! Worthless junk weapon isn't worth the resources it costs even when it comes to clearing buildings, the only thing it's not terrible at.
