Is it me or does anyone else think its strange how a weapon in starhawk such as the grinder, can destroy a heavily fortified bunker in seconds but yet cant kill a soldier before they kill you with a machine gun. you would think that the soldier should just burn up instantly when being attacked with the grinder but I find it useless against soldiers. I understand if this was designed so people didn't just use the grinder for everything but it just doesn't make sense.
And while were on the subject of not making sense, why does the shotgun work better at long distance than when they are right in front of you. That's not how shotguns work. And the knife being able to cut down buildings when your using bruiser is still the stupidest thing I have ever seen in a game I think.

so first the grinder.
if this was based on a real grinder, the sparks that come off it are super hot within a few inches of the grinding wheel.
when they have travelled through the air this cools them down very quickly. so it will kill a soldier if you are within a few inches of them.
Shotgun, the shotgun pellets spread very quickly after leaving the barrel, so to kill a soldier at close range you have to be very accuratly aimed at them, over distance it causes much more widespread but less effective damage.
when people used the shotgun on me at range it still takes 2 or 3 shots to kill me., people never use it close up because if they are that close it is easy to knife them.
Bruiser skill, its all been said before. i use it to take out enemy buildings that have been put up in my own spawn, and occasionally to remove an outpost close to our base.
if you are driving a tank and a sidewinder comes up to you, the soldier hops of and starts swiping like he is dancing with John Travolta. then just reverse or go forward very quickly.
my favorite trick here is when a sidewinder gets right up behind my tank as i am moving, i just keep going , swing my turret round behind and shoot the bugger off his bike. then keep going in circles until you either run them over or shoot them with the main gun.
as to other people using the Bruiser skill, people will always chase Kill death Ratios. so they will look for the easiest method to rack up the points.
all this could be avoided if the damn audio worked with headsets. i have found maybe 1 game in 10 where it works. and even then after a couple games it stops working again.
