    Squads don't make much sense to me though. I haven't earned any squad points bonus which is lame and if I die my whole is on the other side of the map so I can't do much either...

    Yeah and the precision strikes. I made lots of points so that my squad leader can use 1 and he didn't used it. Must have been a newbie lol.

    Edit: Kills with those should count as squad kills or at least assist points. IDK maybe for more skill points earned after battle.

    When you are forming a squad, think of it as if you're forming a group in an MMO. HMGs are your tanks, Assault are your DPS, Logis with proper equipment are your healers. The squad I was in had that set up several weeks and we won every single match of Ambush and made it impossible for the enemy to take whatever objective we were at.

    Good weapons for medics? I'm thinking mass drivers, shotguns, rifles, something that doesn't need sidearms.

    This is what I run.

    Logistics Type-I dropsuit for the 3 equipment slots
    GEK-38 Assault Rifle or a GK-13 Burst Assault Rifle
    Militia Grenade (BP)
    2 Militia Armor Repair +2 (BP)
    2 Militia Shield Extenders
    Nanohive (BP)
    Repair Tool (BP)
    Mitita Nanite Injector

    I don't run with a droplink cuz those are easy to spawn camp. It's still a cheap outfit without the blueprint items.

    Don't treat this like CoD else you will end up dead 99% of time. You also have to remember that you have to deal with shields so OHK's are impossible unless you point blank with a shotgun and they aren't wearing a heavy dropsuit.

    I've one-shotted people with a militia scrambler pistol to the head though, I'm pretty sure heads take extra damage.

    Yup I've noticed that. Actually I'm not playing the game like CoD, more like BF3 since both are similar in combat, which is why I love it so much. winking

    So I have like 4,000,000 ISK, waiting so I can learn the skill to use caldari dropships. After that I'll train my flying skills till I get to 140,000 skill points for the 2nd caldari dropsuit.

    Yup. It's now based on you WP, it caps at 1000 though. The Dev's are considering removing that cap though...the 1000, not the weekly silly

    Good weapons for a dropship??? Blasters are short range and doesn't seem to hit unless I get very low. Railguns seem to be the best option because of high range, although very low RoF, which will most likely miss moving targets. Missiles are too slow for moving targets at long range. Shield boosters and mobile clone respawns are a must imo.

    I'll begin a new character. Ever since I learned to revive people I'm just using the militia medic dropsuit. I'll make a new logistic with a shotgun (?) and continue to provide air support.

    I has a heavy machine gun. I wreck people, but no logi's come to heal me. It's so annoying. I'm thinking about just making a logi myself, so others don't have to experience the pain.

    I just figured that the shotgun is best used in a scout dropsuit because of the fast sprint speed. The shotgun needs it for fast surprise attacks, catch an enemy from behind and get close fast for effective shotgun range. My logi seems a bit slow (I think slower than assault) so I guess it's either assault rifle or mass driver...

    I got myself "guardian" points (30) for triage while the heavy killed someone with the machine gun. It felt awesome.
