    which boosts do you guys like to use and why ? Does anyone use amped weapons ? How good does that one work ? I basically just always use sentry, i want to switch it up but it just works really well.

    I think using the Rt 201 with amped might be a really good combination. I heard that particular weapon works really well with it. But haven't tried it yet

    I know the really good players like to use Amped Weapons, so if you are already a good shooter, I would use that. I don't think you can go wrong using the Pilot Sentry though at least until they weaken it, because it is just too smart. If it can track Gamesager from across the entire map on Angel City, then you know it is just too damn smart. Now, if you are not a good shooter like me, and you prefer to play objective modes like Amped Hardpoint, then the Ticks work real nice for that to help you take or defend a hardpoint. The Pilot Sentry would also work for that as well though.

    Interesting. I'm gonna give amped weapons a try. As far as sentry guns go there are 2 types. Pilot sentry and anti titan sentrys. I have really only used the pilot sentry. I've tried the anti titan one time I didn't really like it. But how about you ? How would you rate both of those sentrys in comparison?

    I have not used either, so I'm sorry I can't give an opinion. To be honest though, now that I think about it, I don't recall ever even seeing a Titan Sentry. I really only ever used Amped Weapons to start with, but then I switched to Ticks. The reason I switched to Ticks as well as most things in my pilot loadout is that whatever things other people were killing me with that were really getting on my nerves the most is what I started using myself. Every time I would get killed by a Tick, it was like, "Uggghh!!!", so I figured if you can't beat em join em. :) I just wish they would make friendly Ticks blue though, so you don't run like a scared little girl from a Tick only to realize it was a friendly tick. :)

    Haha that's hysterical. I'm sure these ticks are causing a lot of people to RAGE when they get killed by them. But see that's something my cousin and his friends would love because they find it humorous that people go nuts over a stupid tick thing that explodes.

    Yes there is a titan sentry. Maybe it's great ! I wonder if that is the one that took out game sager. Do you know What game mode was he playing in at the time ? I don't think the titan sentry is available in pilot vs pilot

    Yeah, I could see how some would get a kick out of that. :)

    You know, I'm curious about how the Titan Sentry works actually. For example, is it only allowed to shoot at titans and not pilots? I don't know.

    Oh, the Sentry didn't kill Gamesager. He's too good for that, but it was just the fact that being one of the best moving players in the game that it could be such a nuisance to him shows you how rediculous it is. I will try to find the video for you. Now that I think of it, there was another one where he mentioned that if it wasn't for the Sentry he would have won the game, but it was making him take different routes than he wanted to. I'll try to find both for you, because it is amazing watching him. He was born to play video games and he is just one of the best.

    Yes I gotta take a look at this guy. Actually when I first bought this game he was in one of my lobbies. I never heard of him at the time but put it this way he pissed me off so much hahaha He kept running on the out of bounds area and he would come out of nowhere and kept killing me. I wasn't to happy to say the least hahah.

    I just know that you can't use the titan sentry in pilot vs pilot. So maybe it doesn't shoot at the pilots at all. In this case if it does do decent damage to the titans I think I'm gonna switch to that in attrition

    Here you go Omega:

    Gamesager Angel City (Pilot Sentry won't let him go even across map)
    4:15 through 5:10 is where he comments about the Pilot Sentry


    Gamesager playing against his own team (who are all really good in their own right) and he almost beats them and probably would have if not for the Pilot Sentry. Pay atttention to what he says around the 3:55 mark. Notice his kills compared to the other team's (his buddies) MVP.


    Also, Omega, Gamesager is one of the best players in the world and he can pretty much use any weapon, but he is probably using his preferred loadout in a match like this where he is trying to beat his own teammates and he is using this:
    Alternator
    B3 Wingman
    Phase Shift
    Firestar
    Amped Weapons Boost
    (so those might be a good place to start if that is what one of the best in the world prefers)

    the titan sentry shoots at the reapers and titans only not pilots , you will have to use the pilot sentry which shoots at pilots and spectators . i use the titan sentry a lot i will have to get back into using the halo pilot and maybe a different perk .

    no problem , i use them alot as they tend to distract the reapers , as i play the AI modes more . that and i tend to attack Titans when i see them like a magnet rather than pilots . i like the wall perk and have used it with the grenade launcher when i feel like pissing off the other team when they get cocky and teabag me lol . you know the launcher that was the anti titan weapon before i forgot the name .

    yeh when i feel like causing a bit of chaos lol , if i had a player to back me up with a sentry gun lol man i tell you i annoy the crap out of titans walking by with that launcher , i wish it had some more splash damage it is really weak but that rapid fire lol is addictive.

    my load out in most games tend to be cloak pilot with a smg car or the laser one or even an assault rifle with titan sentry . as i tend to flank my enemies . with Tone .

    Just watched them. Well Gamesager talent is clearly from another planet. Doing that bunny slide is just amazing , i try to do it but I can't. But wow what domination. His class set up looks great to. And I see that phase shift really works pretty damn good. It saves you from death atleast 3 times a match.

    The sentry on Angel city seemed ridiculous, it was shooting him accurately from almost across the map. I like that the sentry can get you kills but you just can't have everyone using sentrys in the game. That's really the issue here. Having the whole team using sentrys is a definitely not good. So respawn has to address this

    Yeah, those sound like some really good strategies, especially the mag launcher with A-wall if you would set it up next to a teammates titan sentry. Ouch! if you are a titan. :)

    Yeah, he is almost super human at video games. And his movement is unmatched, that's why he could outscore his own good teammates when they were using guns and he was only allowing himself to use melee as you can see below (this is like a clinic in titanfall 2 movement). The point is if these Pilot Sentries are even a major nuisance to one of the best moving players in the game, then what chance do us average schlubs have? :) Respawn needs to do something about them.

    sometimes i play as a distractor rather than an attacker , that set up won't get much kills on a pilot but what it can do is disrupt a clan that like to play organized , sometimes like i said before it's not always how straight you shoot that win gun fight but what you do to win the the battle . i tend to do this sometimes as i get bored believe it or not i don't enjoy winning all the time been there done that , i prefer to enjoy the feel of the game the experience . i have epic games in different game so many time to count that just gets borring for me so i mix it up a bit and piss off other players that think they are the shit lol .

    i remembered in battlefield 1 beta i had 60 something kills and 2 deaths lol i did this also in star wars killing the entire team with a sentry gun.

    not to mention battlefield bad company 2 days , i even believe the phrase base rape was started by me lol and before you know it the entire community was using this , i wish i have videos of bad company when i was playing as a sniper i made so much enemies and got so many hate mail for random players that rage quit when i killed them so much . i remembered killing the entire team with a sniper rifle and that is not an easy task . the good old days , wish my eyes were as good as they were back then not any more lol

    I would love to have that on my team. That is one thing that frustrates me sometimes on Amped Hardpoint. I'm busting my butt defending the only hardpoint we have and I'm getting attacked constantly and I'm thinking, "What in the hell are my teammates doing? Even if you are not taking the other 2 hardpoints, then you should at least be distracting the other team so they are not all attacking me. Otherwise, if they are all attacking me at the only hardpoint we have, then why the hell are you not taking the other 2 hardpoints. Ugghhhhhh!!!"

    Yes, I like to do this too. :)
