HE is pretty "bad" now against infantry as it's center damage is lower then heat but has a wider aoe. Which doesn't give you kills. The longer an AI engagement gets the more kills you get with HE, but in most situations you only have a few shots and every one counts. So HEAT is the better choice. You will get more assists with HE, but that's not really what one should be going for.
Also HEAT only requires one more hit against vehicles as AP, so there currently is very little to no reason to choose anything else then HEAT. Especially on a Ligthning. The only difference there is that AP takes one less front armor hit.
HEAT + AP secondary. Way to go.

Furthermore, HE had its reload speed reduced, ie it takes longer to reload. And HEAT has a flatter projectile trajectory than HE.
The question is, would a primary AP + secondary PPA setup work?

I dunno about the lightning.
I regret the AP purchase for my Mag, but not the lightning. The lightning excels at doing -one- thing well and not anything else. It's HE is still brutal even post-nerf and the AP makes is an incredibly tank hunter. Throw some front armour on it, race / flank behind enemy lines and pop those Prowlers. Just be sure to keep moving.Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY

well, don't purchase any new rocketlaunchers just yet (nanite systems, you heretics!). faction specific launchers are in the works, and hopefully the lancer will be very compelling.

I'm pretty sure that whilst labelled as GU03, it's not actually the content patch for feb so we should hopefully get some of the additions promised.

Can anyone explain to me how this happened?
There was no Lightning in my view (could have only shot me from the front or left spawn room door) and also the shields were still up. They were going down any second but at this time they were still up.
Also tanks cannot shoot through spawnroom shields no matter what, at least I thought?
Against the vanguard it's also another one to the side and top for HEAT.
But the rear armor/hits (what the Lightning should be going for) is exactly the same. The only difference is that the second AP shot will make a MBT burn, the HEAT shot will not.

Splash damage sometimes registers through walls and shields I think? I've also heard people claim they've been shot through walls on mumble.

oooh: · Squad leaders that belong to a platoon should now be able to promote a member of their squad to the role of squad leader.

So don't completely discount that gun, it has its uses.

234 logged in during February.
That's honestly no where near as bad as I thought.
140 in the past two days. Which is damned excellent.
180 not at all in 2013, but that's about right for what I expected.
Not gonna suggest a cull of memebers. [RPS] should remain a place where people who read about updates to the game and want to hop in again can just join Mumble and get going again. What I might do is put "Giraffe calf" to use once the in-game outfit list is sortable by last login.
Edit: What the fuck icetrance? That's like twice the XP/min of anyone else...Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY
