So, I've been playing quite some time and without fail, I always run into lobbies where randoms are always spewing out the latest myth/legend that they heard in their previous games. I've read numerous threads on here such as propane tanks on hives (one at a time or all), repairing the drill vs. not repairing (affects score), spinning to revive or repair faster (which is fiction by the way), bouncing bettys damaging the drill, and numerous others.
I guess sometimes it's funny because of the rage, but after awhile it's very laborious. What others have you heard and want to dispel? Please lets keep this to fact and not "I heard" as this forum is searched quite a bit for answers. Let's keep the 'teeth earned" debate for another thread.
Did bouncing bettys stop damaging the drill?
no if shot by scorpions they destroy about 30+ drill health
I`ve had my drill health drop from 125 to 0 when shot by scorpions with bb`s by drill.
no they still Damage the drill
Throwing all the propanes on the Drill just makes a big BOOM, but 1 at a time does more dam over time(Fire) plus having VHS(Sniper Dead eye) goes really freaking fast. Repairing the Drill doesn't affect score, but it getting hit you lose Score. Betties will annihilate the drill, unless they finally fixed it.
The other 1 I hate the most "Take more Dam" people claiming it affects everyone but it doesn't, I'v even tested it. People want everyone to stand still so they won't get the "don't get hit" challenge. Buy the Heli at the end before starting the Nuke, even tho the Heli DOES THE EXACT SAME THING when you don't buy it.
I absolutely hate when people think that Take More Damage affects everyone. You will definitely know when you have take more damage on. I always play with Take More Damage on because I feel that it makes you a better player if you get used to it. From my experience, the people who complain about it are never the Medics. The source of the contestation about the relic is when a Medic is the armor person. They always complain about people needing armor, but fail to realize that the medic doesn't take scorpion cloud damage and can run away from trouble more often.
This is why I always recommend that a WS runs armor because they will have a better gauge of the team's need for armor than a medic.
I usually do No Machines, & run Armor & ammo.
Great topic, thanks for creating it. Here is my list of 'pet peeve' myths and legends that I hear/see over and over, some of which are already noted here...
