first video is a bit outdated at certain parts:
armory replenishes just as fast if there are many people using it at the same time (the "diminishing" they had for a while was removed again).
sprinting is not limited anymore.
crouching has another benefit: enemies cannot hear your movement while crouching.
whips don't knock grenades back anymore.

but anyway, nice explaination of common tactics and tips.

When I made the Marine Tutorial it was not possible to exit. If you finish watchign my series of tutorial videos you'll notice that the Tutorial Update - Build 252 mentions you can get out of exosuits now.

Awesome videos, you could add in-depth information on how to use certain weapons. Like sniping skulks on RTs with the pistol if you can see a part of them underneath the extractor. Or maybe how to use the assault rifle and pistol together.
