    Lately I had been playing bots only, teammate damage=zero, vehicle arena (SPMA), lightweight vehicles (5X), lowgrav (300/950) and 4X shooting rate (using the Control-X1A mod), gamespeed=50%.

    It's funny because everybody gets thrown around but I was playing Echo for a bit and could not hit anything. And the bots hit everything they want.

    The SPMA makes for amusing Eagle Eyes.

    I was wondering what the SPMA is too, I've played ONS but not seen this vehicle. Is it one of the bonus vehicles?

    I don't even know what the SPMA is
    I take it it's a vehicle? I only play DM, TAM etc....

    The scret of the SPMA is resisting the urge to use it at maximum range. Of course the spread is wide there.

    If you must hit targets at maximum range, hit them with the altfire shell (camera). It's super-accurate, deals 250 damage and cannot (practically) be shot down..

    Might be... ...but we are talking ONS maps... ...and not even the newest player would use the Flak at the same distance the SPMA is used usually after he shot the Flak primary once... :bulb:

    SPAM works fine .. If you know how to use it.

    The main cannon is fun to use, and moderately effective. Since it does 250 dmg for a full shell, they made it a bit less accurate - but still more accurate than flak primary at the same distances.

    The SPAM is intended for support purposes. For to be used strategically.

    Even if you don't like (or can't use) the main cannon, it's still:
    1) The fastest wheeled vehicle
    2) that transports 2 people
    3) has a highly destructive shock turret, and
    4) is the best hill-climbing vehicle in the game.

    First off, if you know how to use it, the Scorpion is pretty good at dealing out the pain. A short fire bola on a Manta, it's done. Fully charged bola on a Goliath, almost does it in, making it easy for your teammates to take it out if the tank gets you first. Used on nodes with short fires, kills it quick once they start popping. The key is to know how to drive to avoid AVRiLs and tanks, and to be able to shoot and steer independantly, which takes practice. Every vehicle has it's strengths and weeknesses.

    The SPMA is useful sometimes. I do agree that the steering is sensitive, but that's in comparison to the other ground vehicles. Best way to use it is behind something. The difficult thing to get used to is moving your view and target area. Viewing at certain angles helps setting the target area. Don't hold the direction keys, it moves fast, just tap around to get it to hold green. And if anyone comes to get you on foot, switch to second seat which is almost exactly like the Bender's. It takes some getting used to, just like all the vehicles. At the very least it's a transport.

    If you playing off line your only able to get one shot off anyways because the bots can shoot the camera down with anything. I’ve seen them use rocket launcher, manta, tank before I even get my second shot off.out:

    Just make sure there are no tall objects very close to your vehicle, other wise your targeting thing will be red no matter were you swing it. That’s its way of saying hey your going to hit that tree that is only ten yards away from your vehicle.

    Yea---someone else mentioned it, and the only times I have goten it to even appear to be working right is when the terrain is very flat. But the shots still don't seem to go where they're aimed. And the bots can still hit anything they want. :weird:

    Yes that's true, but the vehicle itself (it's manouvrability) is useless.

    I know that. But then Flak is a close range weapon. And the damage per projectile is too high for only a few randomly spread projectiles on the SPMA. That'S not the case with Flak. SPMA should cover the area more equally with Flakshards.
