    The game is sounding sweet

    Since impact alt actually ejects the driver, does that mean i can land on top of a levi from a raptor, eject everyone and jump in?
    Im assuming you can still ride on the top of some vehicles...
    Stated above is probably my opinion. Feel free to tell me how wrong it is.

    Wow, that's... questionable. That'll take some getting used to.

    I guess the gloves are off as far as antipersonnel vehicle weapons are concerned. UT2004 weaponry used to not specifically target people, but now we have tanks with antipersonnel rounds, rollerballs that turn into blenders and tripods that create shockwaves.

    If you can survive getting to the leviathan in the first place, sure.

    But also, the vehicle is deactivated for 15 seconds, so before you can take the Leviathan you must fend off the five or six people you just ejected all on your own. And if you don't kill them all, they can just eject you once the vehicle is back online.

    In short, it'd take an organized ambush to get one of those things via impact alt. In the case of the scorpion and manta and the smaller vehicles, it'll be easier because it's mano-a-mano, but not in the case of a six-man vehicle.

    One guy with an impact hammer and one Goliath around the corner would smear that 5-man Leviathan crew over the walls.

    i dont like the sound of that hammer alt EMP thing idea, it doesn't make sense at all, it can completely elliminate the functionabilty and use of vehicles from a tactical Point Of View

    I hope they dont add that, or at least make it an option to disable.

    Errm, you need to be in melee range to use it, have you ever been in arms reach of a moving manta by choice?

    Thats the problem with the emp, you need to be able to actually survive long enough to get near the vehicle.

    Your repertoire of attacks against vehicles is richer and more robust than before. You know
    Gives me hope though.

    ....so we're introducing the idea of respawner machinery. The whole idea is that wars aren't fought with giant armies; they're fought with elite guys who're essentially immortal. That makes respawners major strategic objectives, since if you destroy them, the enemy elite become mere mortals.".....
    They nicked that idea from Devastation.

    If you crouch and the manta goes over you, you won't die. so maybe that will be a good time to try EMP.

    And aim up? and do remember that's on flat ground, and I dunno if they thought of the end of a manta jump, I'd imagine it goes a bit lower when it lands.

    Also keep in mind this has to be even-level terrain and the Manta is not coming down from a jump or an incline.
