Shall we try more of this when those pesky shields get in the way? Maybe we'll make it all the way in, o, and not die horribly after getting pounded with turrets.

That was just with one cert in it. Active duration goes 8 seconds, 10, 12, 14. No idea on recharge times.

Can is still be an AMS with the shield? I remember having to trade off some really important stuff on different vehicles before.

nope, uses the Utility slot as does the S-AMS

Hey speak for yourself. I went on to take down a couple generators before I died horribly.

In all seriousness though, specifically at the amp station like this if we had a full bus go through both shields with a backup ams already down, I think you could cause a lot of destruction getting into that inner layer of shield.

I heard on the official forum that this doesn't get you through the 2 garage shields for the tech plant, where most base owners park a sundy. Apparently the whole outfit was loaded up for a breach and it slammed into the shield, then they got trashed.

Now I want to test this on some empty bases just to make sure what it works on.

Definitely need to test this, but I wonder if he used the "deploy" keybind instead of the "use ability" keybind... I had that problem the first time we tested the Mad Bus technique. It might be a good tactic to load a bus with AV heavies and Engy Tank mines... hit the shield and bust any sundies in the vehicle bay. This might help out the zerg rushing in.

Also, need to check out the half-in, half-out sundy in the shield trick. I think they were using it to jump inside (enter the bus from the rear end, get dropped inside the shield when you leave the bus). I'm sure they will kill that technique, but until then...

Cal.

That sounds fun to try/test.

I would like to know if it can make it inside the base shields, cause if it can we could then test it sometime by bringing an infiltrator and hack a vehicle term to get us a S-AMS, also Mags/Lightnings.

I'll Fly backlines as an infil and spawn one and try it out. I should be able to find a pretty empty base to test with.


Update: It works fine with the double vehicle bay doors, got jacked by a mosquito before I could test out the Half-Half shield trick. Will try that in awhile once I get my timers back up.
