    Oh agreed, but if you can see the players moving over the node and have a safe tent then you can cause a lot of frustration for even a lot of players trying to charge that node.

    But it will take a couple shots with LG or sniper to kill him where one well-placed turret will take him out. That is a good point about staying hidden though, generally I like providing cover fire for an established node.

    This also works well for attacking since one charged shot from the rear turret will take out a newly formed node, giving your team time to get there.

    Defending with an almost out of sight Hellbender. I love picking off a manta who is sitting at a node thinking he has an easy node to take out and he suddenly explodes for no apparent reason, no avril lock or warning of any kind. This also works well for attacking since one charged shot from the rear turret will take out a newly formed node, giving your team time to get there.

    it completely depends on my mood. i'm ctf btw. thorns i defend, if i'm tired and can't be bothered too much i defend, otherwise i'm normally prowling midfield. if i see my FC or know where he is i'll cover him, if i see EFC i'll get them, if they got ours and we haven't got thiers i'll pace it to the flag no matter what at least it'll distract them even if i can't fire back. grabbing a weapon could cost us a cap. i'm very much a 'suicide is good for the team' i ain't no good in DM

    Defense. Give me a well sited turret and a nearby weapons locker to get link from and I'm a happy man.

    i prefer attacking, especially trial servers... lmao. it's more fun and you don't have to keep killing relentlessly for 30 something, 20 something minutes.

    I usually like to sit at the wall and pick them off as they come up the hill. It also helps the attackers this way too.

    The good thing about defense in a map like Maul is that they can dish damage to enemies before they get the flag, and can make sure none of the health-pickups go to the enemy FC by picking them up themself.

    The only defense you'll be doing in TDM is the few seconds before a major pickup spawns, and then it's generally more a matter of necessity (do or die) than choice.
