Playstyle Thread!

[ Edited ]
15 replies 303 views Edited Feb 2, 2013

Since there have been so many loadout threads in the past, I thought it might be cool to make a playstyle thread where players can give us a thorough description of their styles, so that we can all learn something from one another.
 
So, are you an offensive or defensive player? What are your specific strategies and combat tactics? What are your favourite techniques? Do you prefer sniping or running 'n gunning?

 

There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.

I'm more of a defensive player when I'm in a party, be it CMP or Co-op.

I play more offensive when I'm alone.

My tactics are to stay with my team.
If I die they'll avenge me, if they die then I'll avenge them.

I'm a fairly aggressive player. Kinda depends on map, gamemode and opponents. But if we're talking TDM, I usually play fairly carefully until my Smoke Bomb is ready. Then I can get really aggressive.

My playstyle is very aggresive, Always moving, always shooting and always fighting in the front lines. I love the T-Bolt, its the only Power Weapon i go for so if you play against me i will cry like a school girl if you take it from me.

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

When using cloaked, I will try and outsmart people by flanking them or running away only t shoot them in the back but when using fleet foot, I prefer to rush them and go in head on. Naturally I'm an aggressive player.

Hmm, depends on the map if it's a dark map like facility I prefer stealthy with cloaked. If it's a map like Desert Village I just hunt like a madman.

I take a piece of tape and tape down the R1 button and I sprint around the map.

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

Since I mostly play Coop, I'm a defensive player.  I focus more on staying with my group and healing when I need to. I usually try to be the one to pop the armored guys helmets and then my teammates can take them down.   Most of my kills are mainly assists or peeling a choker off a teammate.

I like to start defensive but get more and more offensive as the match starts. If I use a ticket my playstyle is incredibly aggresive.

In TDM modes I try to out smart the other team and flank them. In Objective I try to get the most points AND win. In plunder I try score the idol as fast as I can.
