    Angry Silverback = win by default

    Epic, what the hell were you thinking putting a Silverback in versus MP? It's ridiculously OP. Might as well enter it and you automatically win. Before you say throw smokes at it. I HAVE been throwing smokes at it RIGHT BESIDE IT and yet does nothing.

    Why not just remove the damn thing from versus. It only belongs in campaign, horde and beast. People say the SOS and retro are OP, pfft you have not seen the Silverback! Might as well give the other team a thermonuclear bomb. Just been playing Brothers to the End playlist and you Can. Not. Counter. It. At. All. It is impossible unless the other team don't know their a** from their h***.

    Easier said than done. The Silverback alone can handle most, if not the whole other team. When you have four people playing off the one guy who has it it's ridiculous.

    Yes on Rustlung. Me and my mate were doing so good, until they got that damn thing. They say throw smoke grenades, I HAVE BEEN DOING EXACTLY THAT. And it did not affect it whatsoever. It might as well have lasers that point at you and kill you instantly. Once you've used a smoke grenade and you none left after that, you're a dead man. You try shooting at it, then it kills you with machine guns within milli-seconds, you hide they use rockets or their teammate flanks and kills you. It's pathetic.

    Narb, you just need to throw a smoke at it or just dip between cover and blindfire it until it blows.

    I have had no troubles with it. I usually get it to be honest, but when I don't I'm always taking it from the other team. Maybe I'm just better than you :O

    seriously, when does a round ever last that long???
    or did they change the amount of time before it comes out?

    i've only encountered it on TDM, but i could see how much of a pain in the ass it would be in koth or ctl. honestly, i just haven't had that much issue with it. you can almost use it like bait. once you hear the audio clues as to its arrival, there will usually be a flocking towards it, so you can adjust your strategy to start being more aggressive to that spot. i've been killed in the silverback way more than i've found it useful, so i've stopped going for it.

    1: Rounds in MM last long enough for it to come out?

    2: Why the hell aren't you throwing Frags, Smokes, Inks or Incends. at it?

    3: Why aren't you taking it for yourself?

    4: Hide in the small rooms....camp it with Mulcher/Scorcher........flank it.....win before it appears?


    I mean, I could see if it was on the map the whole time....but really? Something that can only come up for like 30 seconds at best and gets ripped apart by something as simple as Smoke grenades, and you're *****ing about it?

    If the match lasts long enough to actually activate it, then it was dragging anyway, and needs a quick ender.
    I think Silverback on this map is AWESOME!

    If you hear "Silverback stage one complete", everyone on the map should be ON THAT. If you fail to pay attention, you SHOULD get minigunned for negligence.

    Honestly man if you make it to that point in the match (in warzone or exe) you just lost anyway. Its an opening style map. I assumed they put it in there for cleanup reasons.
    --Razer Sabertooth user, ask me about it or check it out yourself at their website. R a z e r z o n e (no I'm not sponsored or a dealer I just really like it)
    --Lancer / Gnasher (with a dash of Retro) I've seen to many games be great only to fall over time because of modifications that were not necessary. Please do not allow Gears to follow the others. Its my plea to you EPIC this is the best shooter on the market. Don't do as others have.
    --Thanks to WaRgAsM999, mvviking71 and Creepindeath445 for character codes, you guys are awesome.

    I never had a problem with the silverback.

    Although I have to admit, I'm happy it's on only one map. I enjoy playing on Rustlung a lot, with and without Silverback.

    I am always aware of when the Silverback is about to pop up, and I am either in the middle waiting, or behind cover with a smoke watching the enemy who is waiting for it. If they hop in, I smoke'em and gnasher my way up to it. I agree with the others, if you threw a smoke at it, and they kept going, you must have missed your throw. The Silverback's a nice little gimmick for matches that take too long, I love it. It makes for great battles as you fight for control of it.

    You can dodge a smoke by jumping out before it explodes, and you wont have time to throw an ink with the power of the turret

    1. KoTH and TDM does
    2. Smokes can be dodged, you can turn to face a frag and not have it kill you, and you shouldnt have to rely ONLY on Inks to kill a sliverback
    3. Because its in a open area so its impossible to fight for it if a team is already there with lancers
    4. Camp. The fact that you have to camp proves its a horrible addition. Power weapons should be an advantage, not a game deciding factor

    I agree with you OP, Silverback should have no place in multiplayer.

    If you can't differentiate between 'your' and 'you're' then reconsider posting. Similarly, 'moot' and 'mute', 'its' and 'it's', 'were' and 'we're'. And Pacific is an ocean; the word you want is specific.

    This. I've killed with it and been owned by it and I love it. It's a fun way to change up whatever mode your on.

    If it stays at the very back where it spawn it can be hard to hit it with a smoke without dying.
    I saw my teammate get in it at camped at the back and the other team couldnt reach it with smokes before dying.
    It shouldnt be in multiplayer they should just put boomshot there.

    There's two easy ways to counter the Silverback.

    Throw a smoke/ink and kill the driver.
    Sneak behind the Silverback and kill the driver.

    Be creative, you'll find a way.

    Well, I can't get there can I, cause there's the other opponent guarding them.

    3: Why aren't you taking it for yourself?
    How can I possibly get it for myself when they have it!? Was throwing smokes and it didn't do nothing.

    What difference does it make, it just blows you up with rockets. It's just unbeatable.

    Okay then I'll just blindly run there and get shot. We were on TWO v TWO deathmatch. There ain't much you do to get there when they were camping near Silverback.
