I do love the 'poptastic' sound it makes without one anyways! ^_^ hehehe

it's not.

shredder got a very distinct bang bang bang to it... while a silenced Marauder goes "frrrrrrrrrrrrrp"

it's pretty good as in a thick battle, u'd clearly noticed "BANG BANG" and would try to look around.... but u won't hear the Marauder, guaranteed.

practice to get more headshots and u're a step closer to Sam Fisher.

hmmm... if that's the case, I JUST might consider buying that rather expensive silencer after all... =_= lol! frrrrrrp! looks like a fart! >_< hahaha! that would be a clear giveaway to your location! @_@

I'll replace agony with the marauder again on my 3rd slot to see how well i fare with it in regards to aiming... hope they've fixed the lag enough... =_=

Mee tooo!! ...but only if it kills at least as fast... if not faster than a shredder in mid/close range... ^_^

I was never fond of the p90's look though... it looks like you're carring around a black lunchbox... =_=

If you're good with shotguns, definitely go for the doomhammer... it's such a great gun for the amount you pay for it... you immediately rack up kills even before you fully upgrade it! ...but again.. only if you're comfortable using shotguns.. ^_~

Couldn't agree more. I used a fully upgraded agony forever. Then got a DH and used agony as secondary. I recently purchased a shredder and have agony as third option. DH for close range and shredded for mid to long is brutal.

Do you guys suggest any other guns? Does anyone actually use a third option weapon?

Re: Shadowgun: DeadZone Add me & Discussion
I use Spate as primary, Agony when out of spate ammo (but usually dead before that happens), and Doomhammer for cqc. When I get a Shredder, will I replace spate for long ranged accuracy, or keep it and swap for agony? I just bought sprint 2 and grenade 2, so I'm broke atm lol. Level 28 atm (I think lol).

yeah... I always have the hammer as my primary, then shredder as 2ndary...

but since I've got premium I usually switch my 3rd slot weapon as it suits my mood and the game I'm in...

... by default I usually have agony/barrage gathering dust in there.. only ever use them on rare occasions if I ran out of ammo or I feel like spamming the opposing team with a hail of bullets/plasma...

I sometimes switch it to surgeon/osog for when I feel like trying to 'sniper-rush'...

... and lately... I've been trying out to see the effectiveness of marauder with silencer... failing at the moment... =_= I need a bit more practice with that damn bb gun...

... but i NEVER EVER equip sh!tstorm on there... I have my own moral code to uphold... =P lol!

Re: Shadowgun: DeadZone Add me & Discussion
I use Shredder/DH too. Must admit I have given into using the SSII sometimes as my third slot. I was against it "morally" for a long time as well, however, it has been toned down from the absurd damage levels it had before. I also use it in a "normal" manner to control traffic choke points and to flush from cover at distance, not to rocket rush people's feet at close range and farm an ammo kit all day to grief with it.

My primary tactics still involve stealth jammer flanking with DH/mines and direct power strikes with Shredder/grenades.

Also, while errybody and their mama still suggest the Bigboy/Agony branch, I now fully suggest a straight Vega/Atilla/Shredder growth branch. Headshots galore; reloading is a small chore to ask for increased damage and dropping enemies first.

In capable hands, yes. It does seem a tad stronger than it looks on paper. Aim for the head and neck seems to help, as headshot hits multiply base damage to an extent. The high fire rate with this multipler helps drop enemies fast.

Does anyone notice that there are some lower rank players using the same name as the rank 40s - 50s?
So far I've seen kumarjay, heisenberg and even someone using my name Eragon1. I don't know how they do it but MF should do something about this.

Also, I don't know whether its because I'm not a premium account, but I always have to wait 10 seconds to respawn and yet the people that I just killed and died together have respawned way before and are already in front of me again. These differences between premium and free accounts are starting to annoy me. It wasn't like this before.

And recently I've been shooting direct at someone and nothing happens. I realised that when you walk and shoot at the same time sideways, the actual bullets take a while before they catch up with your aim. So you have to offset your aim for this. I still need to learn the doomhammer properly though. It's hit and miss at the moment.

Yeah, I've noticed. They are clicking on the name in the top left of the name menu and changing the nickname that way. If they are in your friend's list, you can see both their username and their current nickname.

Spawn time is not a feature of premium count. Only thing happening there is misfortune; there is a timer in the background that is independent of whenever you die, and you just happen to be getting killed at the top end of the count instead of the bottom. Also, the blasted thing likes to skip over on 1 sec count sometimes and roll back over to 10 secs more. Happens at the start of a match to me like that too more times than not, getting my hopes up I'll be spawning early or at least with everybody else.

Yup, there is sometimes a bad offset even when only you or your opponent is moving. Have to be careful, just a by-product of lag either via connection, server, etc. Spawn time rolling over or not on you also is affected by lag.

With DH try and get that first shot lined up square for a kill before pulling the trigger. Hold and spray while strafing is okay, but going in guns ablaze with a shotty may get you killed due to the delay between shots... if the first shotty hit isn't a kill or enough to critical for the second blow to kill even on graze, the enemy may headshot you and kill you first anyway.
