Now...I've been playing the game a long time and I'm plenty experienced enough and been whooping bee-hind for many a year. I'm not boasting just making sure u know I'm NOT some sort of n00b before I continue. ;) Although being experienced (and been playing since it's release), I haven't found many of the common exploits that people use these days and certainly haven't purposefully searched for them (just a lame way of playing). I guess the reason I don't know many of them is the fact I've never suffered any1 abusing them. Either I been lucky with the people I play against or I just think it's normal and manage to frag them anyway. Either way, I haven't had any problems with them. :uhm: I think it would be handy if we could build up a common list of hack's and exploits people use. **IMPORTANT** THESE ARE NOT DESIGNED TO BE USED BY PEOPLE!! As such, when leaving a reply, please do not leave any description of HOW to perform the hack/exploit, simply leave a small description of the issue so we all know what we're looking for if we ever come across it. Primarily for my own knowledge, I think this might be useful to any player out there so they know if they're losing fair and square or just getting hammered by a cheap exploit. :nodding: (Please be sure what u post is a hack or an exploit before posting it...would just lead to confusion).
Most people know about Outpost 4 with the window, and collany getting above the apc. the one I heard most recently (bout 2 days ago) Verlock and jumping thru the walls to the ship. thats all I know I have tried the first too out of ceriocity on my own serv, when not many people around and I didnt stay long mostly because i fall to my death quie easly. but not shure on whre or how the vreloc one works.
Like I say, I know very little about the exploitation routes of the game.
Can u be more specific on the colony and outpost4 exploits?
S.P.A.Z.Outpost 4 with the window, and collany getting above the apc.
Window? Above the APC? I assume u don't mean ON the APC. That's just silly....u jump on it.
ok, in outpost 4 there is a window above the over look of 1/2 the level you can get above it by using a alien and a little manuvering by a certan box to get out side the level, and as for colany you may notice when your an the ledge above the apc you can only jump as high as the walls around you. there is a way to get above that using a alien and a little manuvering with the pipes in the hive. I hope im not giveing to mutch info. as for verloc I have no Idea except its by the apc somewhere and you can get to a point to where you can jump thru the wall and make it to the ship in the middle of the level
Now that I think about it more they all have to deal with a tight space with a wall on at least 3 sides, you do the little wall walk thinggy and poof you can see thru the wall and able to pouce thru it so there is probly on for almost any level. even if all you can pounce to is your emidiate deathe and a long fall in to nothingness. witch really laggs up the serv and sometimes freeses up the game. So maby this is a cause to investigate, and probly more common with maps made my amateure modders (people not making maps for serria and sutch)
that's a place where only aliens and preds can go. u r supposed to be able to get there. just smash the glass to get through
when in the verloc a popular place for humans to go in underneath the stair area...it takes a lil bit of time for an alien to get through the space.....so humans have advantage.. in the compound theres an exploit with the fence...not sure what it is though... in the alley theres a little room under a hallway, that is hard to get to the person, or find out how to get in...no clue how to get there myself...
what about the weapon xeploits like rapid fire sniper shooting or stagger fire .... i can even make a pred shoot the disc or the pred pistol without un-cloaking. lvl glitchs arnt that bad considering that the aliens who go outside of the normal lvl 90% of the time are stuck outside and cant kill anyone from outside the lvl. if you play primal hunt and pick human and use pulse u can shoot nades rapid fire as well. right click left click right click left click. it doesnt work in normal avp 2 but its annoying as shit to avoid if your a runner. also another reason i dont like primal hunt is that if you walk it makes head shots almost impossible to get u can drill a guy in the face if he is walking and he will take normal body dmg (it works the same if you crouch and walk) so far i have only see the last 3 exploits work on primal hunt so i hardly ever play ph anymore. also if you play pred and have your friend use the pred pistol on you, switch your vision to whatever one u want to use once the stun wears off the fog that makes it hard to see over long distance will be gone.
THe pred energy pistol is such a spammer against aliens :p
Thanx DarHarHar. That's the kinda thing I'm talking about. Stagger fire on the sniper rifle and the cloaked disc attacks thing.
Verloc - That "map warping" sounds dodgy, although not very life threatening. That bit under the stairs dirt_dweller mentioned, thats fine. I bit annoying to the in-experienced, but ur supposed to be able to get there. Colony - Yeah I've heard of people using a trick involving a pipe or something. I assume thats just a glitch where u can become stuck under a pipe in the ceiling and become hard to hit - like the exploit in Lucifer's Fate, that right? Is the pred bounce considered an exploit? That's the only one I will use, but only if I have to cross a large open area towards my prey or make a fast exit. On the hacks side of things...? I know a few that some a-holes out there use, maybe u can add to the list? Red pred - making the pred visible with a red aura even when cloaked Aim bots - obvious Speed hacks - to speed u up Jump hacks - to make u jump higher
