Yea i know its poll #2 in the same day.
But i went to the infiltration tactics sight which made me wanna make this poll


4th Mar 2001, 04:21 PM
I'm a combat/sniper, But I also do some sneaking about, so I'm a mixture of all, but I'm nervous that since I'm used to playing with bots, I'll get whooped online :(


4th Mar 2001, 04:35 PM
Against bots i snipe until I'm outta bullets then run in with akmsu and grenades and get blown away.I'm pretty damn good at wiping out rooms of ppl with a grende then running my arse of.I'm a hit and run kinda guy. :p

The cliffs are coming!!
The cliffs are coming!!
Run awaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy!!!

4th Mar 2001, 04:43 PM
I put combat, But it depends on how lazy I am.

If I am not lazy and am getting kills, I'll go sneakin.

If sneaking is getting me nowhere or I am lazy, Then I'll go for the mp5 and Seek and destroy.


4th Mar 2001, 05:03 PM
I'm a little of everything. I like to start out as a sniper and find a nice dark area the over looks as much as the board as possible. Once the enemy numbers dwindle I drop the sniper rifle and pick up a weapon from one of my victims and start searching for the remaining enemy. But this all depends on the board too. I love the PSG, duck your head if you see me, lol. Just teasing. I've only played against bots set to godlike. human players are different. I can't wait to play online and get my ass whooped, lol :cool:

Sleep is not an option!!!

4th Mar 2001, 05:12 PM
I'm about the same as everyone else...if I can find some high ground, then I'll snipe as long as possible. If none exists, then it's the mp5 and peeking around corners. Not much for charging into a room or swarm of people like rambo :D

You forgot the insane lunatic player type. I like to light the fuse on a grenade, then run into a crowd!

I play sniper quite often, but it depends on the map. When I'm not sniping I'm more of a cautious combatant or stealthish. I generally move around crouched unless I'm out in the open, then I haul ### to get to some cover before I get laced with the AK...

nonono its light the fuse run in drop a bunch of gernades on the ground then blow your self up.

4th Mar 2001, 07:09 PM
Against bots I am stealthy to prepare for online. Online team games (like this one) I am a team player all the way. Im the guy in CS that saves THE WHOLE DAMN TEAM cause no one bothers to watch our back lol. I am also the cover guy most of the time because no one else does it in Cs lol (with some exceptions, at times you get a good team that works together) I am also the guy that ANSWERS to I NEED BACKUP! or TAKING FIRE NEED ASSISTANCE when everyone else ignores you...a hard job but hey we win lol. So a teamplayer through and through


4th Mar 2001, 07:20 PM
Where's the crappy player option? :)

4th Mar 2001, 07:27 PM
We try not to confess we are crappy lol


4th Mar 2001, 07:34 PM
Support? ;)

I love to sit with an AKMSU and provide cover fire while bots move into place. :) (of course, they don't do it as well as people do, but still)

I wanna be an elven ranger, I want a life that's full of danger,

so you want to be gay? lol j/k

With the bulk system you will no longer be able to start with snipping, then assault then CQB ... You'll have to make a choice !!!
I personnaly suck at snipping, all i do is assault with m-16 (i can't wait for the m4 or the famas)

Given the new bulk system, it will no longer be possible to start sniping, then take m-16 and go for assault, then take mp5 or shotgun and go CQB...So you'll have to make a choice :)
Personnaly, i suck at sniping, so what i do is assault with m16 and m203. I can't wait for the m4 and the famas (please infiltration team, do not forget that the Famas can have a grenade launcher system)

I'm a mixture of Sniper and Stelth, I'll sneak up on some one with the suppresed MP5 or snipe them with the M-16 w/ the ACOG.

5th Mar 2001, 09:25 AM
Why can't someone start out sniping and then drop the sniper rifle and pick up another weapon to assult with? As long as you drop the sniper rifle you shouldn't be carrying around that much bulk. Or maybe I'm missing something about 2.85. :cool:

Sleep is not an option!!!

5th Mar 2001, 10:28 AM
i ilke long range assaults, generally using the m16 from long range providing cover fire. i love doing that. I cant wait for a full aouto assault rifle

5th Mar 2001, 11:24 AM
well, i am kind of both a CQB guy and a medium range assault guy

when i am in maps like DaHood i use a knife and an mp5

maps like Cuban Dawn i use both a mp5 and a m16

so it really doesnt matter because INF doesnt really have a set point for wich kind of maps are being made to play

This is now

only 'when' is later

5th Mar 2001, 12:23 PM
Playing CS, I'm one of the guys who loves to charge in madly with the MP5, blazing away until it clicks empty, then whipping out the glock or .45 and finishing off another guy or two. (If I'm lucky) Truly in the hard boiled spirit of Chow Yun Phat and John Wu, if you will.

I also go in for the team oriented aspect of the game (since the John Wu aspect will be impossible), and I'll love hooking up with my fellow CQB buddies and leapfrogging forward, laying cover as we go. 9mm, .45, Shotgun, MP5, and M4 will be my tools.

Hopefully the game won't be sniper dominated. Anyone who has played CS knows how INCREDIBLY lame an AWM camper is. (AWM = the 1 shot 1 kill gun of CS) What I think is really fun is getting into furious, blazing gun battles at close ranges rather then sitting in your little spot for the entire round letting the enemy come to you. The fact that INF maps don't have an objective other then to kill the other team could possibly mean two robar whores could sit and not see each other for an eternity, or at least until the time runs out, which suuucks.

So you sniper folk out there: be good, and at least move from place to place.

5th Mar 2001, 12:52 PM
Sniping is fine, but in moderation. I hate it when you're playing normal UT for example, and there is some lamer that has sniped the entire time who has the top score when playing Facing Worlds.

Sniper> "I 0wnz y0u allz! L00k @ my l337 Sc0R3!"
Me> "Yes but did you actually help the team capture the flag?"
Sniper> "shut up you ***ot!! I 0wnz you!!!!"£"@"
Me> "erm fine, whatever gets you through the night"

5th Mar 2001, 01:23 PM
I am a stealth player,i like finding a cool spot crouching waiting for some idiot to come buy and blasting them w/whatever SMG it happens to be and then runnning my ass off and finding another spot where morons walk by w/out ever looking sometimes they ask how did i die?? cuz ya sprinted pass me w/out a glance and your back turned and now your laying on the ground ya stupid mofo!!!

Im good at snipering i jus dont like sitting around for 5 minutes waiting it gets annoying

5th Mar 2001, 01:33 PM
I'm always a sniper. no matter what map. if i run out of 50. cal rounds for the robar i switch to the Desert Eagle and shoot till i die. hehehehe :)

By the time you notice me it will be all over.

6th Mar 2001, 06:50 AM
I hope they limit the sniping in some way, or we might have a regular whoring exercise like CS or Day of Defeat, when there's 13 of 16 players being snipers, kinda ruins the spirit and the gameplay....although snipers won't be as dominating in Inf i hope, since you can give covering fire at sniping locations for your team mates to move up. But still, if sniping is too easy, as in CS, snipers will dominate the game totally. With the new breathing implemented, and bullet drop, we might have only good ppl sniping, and not being the point and click Windows style that we've seen in so many other games.

Anyways, i'm usually always a combat player. I usually use the AK, providing covering fire and following up an assault, although this is difficult with bots, since they don't move in teams or use cover :) Can't wait for the FA MAS though, it's gonna rock!!

6th Mar 2001, 07:22 AM
You said it lost, AKMSU all the way!!!!! ;)
Now all us physcos need is some shoddy, unreliable and very loud pistol to complete the outfit (accuracy is, of course, irrelavent)! :D

PS, the DE doesn't really work, it's far too clean/nice.


6th Mar 2001, 05:16 PM

i have never experienced such an inaccurate bad handeling peice of **** in my life... total out of 50 rounds probably 4 or 5 jammed or didn't go off and i was using good ammunition


MAC 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NO NO TEC-9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(they're both pistols, just automatic ones)

6th Mar 2001, 05:35 PM
WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT THE ****ING GLOCK? The GLOCK is the BEST pistol in the world!

wow someone else likes FreeSpace 2!!!!!! That is one f-cking awesome game and is completely neglected by the whole gaming market :(

6th Mar 2001, 11:15 PM
glock's suck, get over it, they are the most over rated gun next to the desert eagle

7th Mar 2001, 12:11 AM
I'm a kamikaze/combat player. Meaning I rarley snipe and love gun battles. And sometimes I just run in the middle of one with guns blazing :)


7th Mar 2001, 03:15 AM
I'm the "**** your **** up if you touch my shoes" type of player.

7th Mar 2001, 07:48 AM
Most of the time it's just me and my M16 (somtimes with M203).
So I think I am mainly an assaulter or supporter (if you can say that so..). Since the single-shot-bug will be fixed in 2.85 playing with the M16 will be even more fun :)
If the M249 gets available and proofs to be deadly enough for me, I gonna stay behind and become full-time-supporter. :)

I am a hardcore team player...if I have to die in
order to help my platoon to win...no problem. :D


Party's over ! *grin*

7th Mar 2001, 08:03 AM
I carry a glock on duty.......glocks are very good gun...I do mean very.....Im with you.....glocks rock


7th Mar 2001, 08:07 AM
Which Glock ?

I like to sneak to the enemy and then take him out with my silenced MP5 or even better with a knife ;). But I also like waiting in a house an then when the enemy approaches - BANG - One shot in the Head with a sniper rifle :D

26th Mar 2001, 07:14 PM
my style has changed since playing online im more of a combat/sniper/stealth
(i get bored and change a lot)

26th Mar 2001, 07:26 PM
I'm a sneaky bastard ;). I have a total distaste for frontal assault, i usually get killed when i attemp that. I try to get where they don't expect me, i also like to follow my prey when they are too lazy to look behing them (because they think i'm a friend since i did not fire at them yet). I also enjoy killing snipers ;).

I know enough to know that I don't know enough.

26th Mar 2001, 08:24 PM
yea i know what ya mean sometimes i would be cheap and yell "Friendly Fire" they would think it was there team and then i would blast them

"Blowing Mó^hêrfúÇ*@§ away Since November 27th 2K"

26th Mar 2001, 09:02 PM
I'm a close support / running scared kind of player. :D

Generally it's me, my Sig, a scope, and some clips running around, taking some pot shots, and getting myself killed more often than not.

Occasionally, I'll pick up a real sniper rifle and see how I do, but I'm only a fair sniper... when the real deal is on the map it show's how much skill I'm lacking.

I also like to "role-play" it a bit on some maps... some scream for me to take the stock M3CQB setup and make like I'm with law enforcement. If I could buy a bullhorn for that loadout I would. :D

26th Mar 2001, 09:18 PM
You forgot about one other type of player.


Grab a shottie and charge!

26th Mar 2001, 10:36 PM
Generally I am the 'getting my ass shot off' kind of player. I like to play flexibly though. If there is some kind of team play happening I love to advance and cover with my mp5 with a squad. If everyone runs off willynilly then I take my mp5, try to find a nice elevated position and snipe with a fully loaded out M16. I hate camping though, it's pretty boring, so I relocate every few minutes or so. I usually only use the M203 if I see a group of guys. Sniping just one person in a group is a good way to order up a hail of bullets. These are the only weapons I carry online although offline I have been experimenting with the robar.

26th Mar 2001, 11:46 PM
I'll just do whatever the map works best with. Open range: Sniping
CQB: combat

and you ALWAYS need stealth no matter what you are doing. If they know where you are, you're screwed.

26th Mar 2001, 11:48 PM
That is the kind of player I would have to characterize myself as.


27th Mar 2001, 06:01 AM
Sniper all the way. Especially when I have a spotter. I'm the type to find a nice secluded spot, wait for the opportune moment, fire, then back away and get the hell out of there to find a new spot. I love it when I strike fear into the opposition when they don't know where I'll be next.

Shoot! Move! Communicate!


27th Mar 2001, 10:03 AM
Allthough I play every role, depending on the map, my favorite thing to do is sneak up on an enemy sniper who is fully zoomed in and either shoot him w/ my Berretta or just run up an knife him. After playing these maps over and over, it has become easy to know where most people snipe (anyone on top of the cliff in cuban?)

Other than that I'll take my M16 and get into a good gunfight! Bennelli shotgun is my other favorite on small and tighter maps.

haha, I'm supposed to be working!

27th Mar 2001, 10:59 AM
I've got to agree with iceman M16 and scope, MP5 with supressor and a whole bunch of grenades WWOOOOHHOOOOOO but normally just splat!! and another cup of coffee but never the M3 horrible horible horrible euch. sorry but that prob is with no D eagle to cut down on bulk my QA is always a grenade great if you have a little distance but if there in your face not much good!!!!! i just drop it, they kill me then get blown up!!! wrong order meethinks !!

God Bless
