Underappreciated units.

Post by Clockwork » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:00 pm

I was bored and I wondered what everyones choice for the best under used unit is.

For me it has to be the mechanic, having your rifle soak tanks heal or capping a soviet husk or reclaiming killed harvs. The list goes on but yet I never build them and I dunno why :D

My unit ration production for allies is 10 rifle, 5 rocket, 2 medic, 1 mecha

Always have mecha in my blob, sometime it is a good joker as reclaiming heavies or fleeing mcv. But most of the time, due to the fact i never took the time to micro manage the armies in different group/position, they are just expensive meatsheild running to their death in amove.

My favorite underused unit is the jamer, it nullifies the main damage dealer of the game; the rocket soldier. 1 of them in static base defense increase the survival of the base expention for several seconds wich leads in bad trade for the opponenet and even somtime enought to deflect a push. They are as well awesome to allow a 6 medium tank to crush an entire infantry blob as they protect them from the rockets.

And if you manage to sneak one in range of the ennemy radar dome, you can even disable the gps.

MAD Tanks. Because it allows for team work. Chrono 4-5 MAD Tanks with Iron Curtain and blow a hole in the base.

Hijackers of course. If their behavior gets fixed, they will provide many interesting options.
Also their cloaking and higher vision range give some interesting possibilities for scouting and cheesing.

Dogs might be a little underused.

You mostly only see them at the start of the game. They don't work on the battlefield (not for me anyway), but they can be great defence sometimes, although using them is very hit and miss and you need the enemy troops to be targeted on something else.

They are still too glitchy IMO. Really wish they could be fixed to work properly

They are glitchy, but it can still be satisfying to wipe out 20 enemy troops with 1 dog. You may need a little luck for it to work, but still.

Haha yes it's satisfying (if it's your dog) and hilarious to watch but it looks absurd.. the dog just like slides around as they all morph into corpses..

I also forgot about dogs. They had some changes on them but still not widely used which is a little sad. But they can be tough to get balanced out. Maybe dogs in an APC!

I did try dogs in an iron curtained APC one time. So unload in the midst of enemy troops when they are all targeting the APC. You may get a few kills but it's quite a bit of effort to go to.

I think the gunboat is under appreciated. It kind of sucks though so I understand why
