Sprint to 2nd Supply Box First Tactic

17 replies 370 views Edited Jul 9, 2013

I don't see many people do this just wondering if there are other people like me, but I like to sprint to the 2nd closest suppply box first then back to the one on the spawn point. This works best on maps like Checkpoint. Actually I think Checkpoint is the only one I do this on lol. THe distance isn't too far.  

This doesnt work on maps like  Downtown because all the 1st and 2nd boxes are too far from each other. I obviously have Marathon Runner when I do this.

The idea is, preferably, to dfo it as a team, and overwhelm any enemies, or, like I do in random play, to disrupt their gathering long enough that the rest of teh team gains advantage.

I kinda like when I have one guy on my team srint off to the second supply box first and the other three go to the other one. This makes you show up on the radar and most of the time will result in the enemy going towards you instead of where we are going. He is also good as a scout to mark enemies so we know for sure where they are at. That gives our team a chance to stock up on supplies and better take on the enemy.

I thought everyone did this. Two crates with no opposition? Common sense to use them. Usually get enough to make.a bomb and.a molotov, or.a nail board and.a Molotov.

It's funny when people do this, but are oblivious to the nail bomb flying their way. Smiley Wink

I prefer to circle around to the second box in hopes to flank the enemy, which is always funny. I love it more when my team goes to the box and have a shoot out with the other team because then they think they are somehow being shoy from the front when im really taking my time to shooy them then shiv the last one.

idk, i just pick up the stuff from the 1st crate which takes like 3 seconds on most maps then get to the 2nd. Most people I've seen are too dumb anyway and spend like a good minute staring in their backpack after going to the 1st cache.

Most people start crafting when they open the first tool box, i don't, i get my **bleep** then rush to the second one and THEN i craft a melee upgrade, a SB and sometimes a shiv.

With those two i can alreay gift a team mate something useful like a Molotov or Nail Bomb, but sometimes the game trolls me and i give them a Health Kit...

If everyone did this nobody would be getting the second supply box without opposition.
