Monkey Man + Pull Down

10 replies 423 views Edited Jan 26, 2013

I think Monkey Man Gold should have added properties, in particular for getting Pull Downs. It's a lot harder to get a pull down if the guy sees you and goes for the Kick Off. 9/10 times you will fail. So why not add higher priority for pull downs to level three MM? The booster is kinda boring as it is anyway Smiley Tongue

I always use it, It also speeds up other animations like climbing over covers.

Exactly. It's amazing. I use it on my Sniper loadout and it helps me escape bad situations and get to higher ground. It's perfect for what it is.

 

Booster, IMO are to either enhance a strength you have in the game or compensate for a weakness. I suck at jumping around, so Monkey man helps.

well pull downs/kick offs tend to favour the laggier player of the 2. Giving monkey man a higher priority for them won't help much...

As someone said, Cloaked makes a great combo with Monkey Man as you hang on walls without being detected through your player arrow, which is why most players can get a Kick Off, whenever you are hanging on a ledge. Essentially, with Cloaked and Monkey Man, you become a Ninja. Adding a higher priority for Pull Downs may seem nice but lag is an issue. In addition, you really don't need additional priority. If you miss a pull down, just drop down to the second ledge and then climb back up to pull him down.

Just got MM to gold. It's not so bad. Being a jumpy guy in the game, I still land on low ledges (I jump far so nobody catches up). Plus, if you can't throw a nade back and there's a ledge, fastest escape ever.
