I'm always so cautious with using my kickback and waiting for the right moment that
sometimes I forget to even use it! lol
So I'm trying to force myself to activate it as soon as I get it depepnding on what it is ofcourse.
I only activate them when I really need them. For example, I don't just throw Megabomb at the first enemy I encounter, or when I'm about to die. I wait until there are at least two enemies together and then throw it.
But since I use Speedy G a lot (20 second Fleet foot, 30 with KB Endurance and is great during Marked man), I usually activate it only if I have full sprint (Speedy G + Sprint = Lightning fast). It works even better with Endurance but I use Cloaked pretty much all the time.
Those two are really the only Kickbacks I use. I do have Hammer Time bought which I also use sometimes.
I just can't trust the "about to die" tactic. With this amount of lag, you never know will you even get a chance to use them when you activate them, and I have experience in that.
I use RPG or a hammer in competetive though I have equiped speedy g at the moment. Sometimes it is the only way you get to sparkle in a match.
In DM and FFA I will activate it when ever, but in objectives and plunder I am more selective of it's use.
I can't rember if I have ever used it when I am about to kop it. I die faster than the time it takes to activate it.
Most times I forget I have my kickback I really enjoy killing my prey's with a gun
But most times I use it either when I'm about to die & I'm being ambushed by 2 or more at the same time I'm taking atleast one person with me lol
Or if I see someone / a group camping I tend to blow them out I love doing this & I'm always successful especially in London Underground.
I use my kickback when I'm near death, or when I get shot while I'm at an unfortunate position.. (both when using smokebomb)
The only other kickbacks I use are quickboom, which is used for cheap kills, so I use em to avoid firefights, dying doesn't matter as the timer pauses anyway.
And I use my t-bolt when I am nice and cosy at my campingspot...
But these days I notice that I happen to accidently activate it by pressing L3 to sprint away.. I used sprint so much that the input is messed up now, sometimes I get to melee the air like a newb, or I automatically use smokebomb ( usually in situations where I am ambushed and panic trying to sprint away.
I tried other controls (sprint on R3) but I just can't get used to it, just like when I get back to Uncharted 2, I won't use down on d-pad to reload anymore and see myself using L3 trying to sprint.
Maybe I need to push through with R3 and force my brain to react to it.. (it's not that I play like a robot, but I can dream these controls out of my head which is part of the problem.)
Anyone else who gets to use their kickback automatically? I find L3 a bad position for sprint though...give me the option to put it on L1, this game doesn't require aiming anyways.
Disruption - I use it in Plunder when the idol is close to either my teams chest, or the other teams chest, stops buddy spawning an makes a good distraction.
Cursed Idol - I use it whenever I get bored, and I try to get myself and others in the gas (team mates and opponents).
I'am an objectives player so I try and use my mega bomb if the enemy team is being a pain trying to take the hill or i'll use it if there is 3-4 enemys in a small area.
Hammer (Dragon kickback) - when I run out of ammo. Simple. And yes, I do run out of ammo because I'm forced to switch to it after running out of Raffica ammo.
Smoke Bomb (M9 Kickback) - you know the rare times when you chase someone and suddenly the turn the tables against you (more enemies around the corner/made it to the PW/kickback went on)? That happens to me a lot. Hence Smoke Bomb.
