    Linking with the Link Gun?

    Erm, how do you link with the Link Gun now?

    ...and why'd they change it?

    You don't shoot your teammate to link anymore. Instead, stand near your teammate. If you stand close enough, little yellow sparks fly between you and your teammate. If you both heal something, it will heal faster than if you weren't standing near each other.

    This way, everybody linking can also shoot. The old way, only the person on the end of the chain could shoot.

      Stand next to another player that has a Link Gun equipped and you both will get a boost, similar to the old linkup. Imo it works fine, as the old node score "stealing" **** is gone. Still the old linking added some atmosphere of team work, what I liked.

            I guess this means I wont be able to do gymnastics when charging a node..
            Unless other players jumped with me...

              No apparently all you have to do is stand close to each other. No more actual linking.

                I liked the old way. The new way is unintuitive, impractical and no fun.

                Don't fix it if it ain't broke.

                  Stand right next to the person you want to link. If they move 1cm away though it will break off.

                    Loved how they had it before, especially when you had a whole chain of guys "hooked" up together It was so much fun doing that on vehicle escaping Assault maps!

                          the older way seemed much more team oriented. this versions link up fails if the other person moves around too much. staying still isnt a good thing in this game

                              What is this score stealing? Are you talking about players like Jasmin who refuse to link up because personal score is more important than the team winning?

                              IIRC in 2k4 you'd get points for healing/building a node even if you're last or in the middle of a link chain.
