You died 20 times to a plasma turret.
They made plasma turret not suck by making the shell x8 faster and it's bigger than your player so its easy to hit you.

Yeah, the turrets are about the only reason to keep gens up. They are ridiculously accurate unless you serpentine.

You know, the T:A huds looked great on my old computer, but my new 24" 1080p screen is so friggen big, I have to turn my head 90 degrees to look at elements on either side of the screen.

Perhaps I need to sit farther away... But I'll need a second table for the keyboard and mouse.

Managed to snag Bart for an AMA on reddit. CC and SH essentially confirmed.

Game files state there is a Herc as well, and that's been in there since before December, so... They also pulled the Havok from the files. But confirmation from a team member is always nice.

Well CC and SH are fairly new to the files (came after the big update a month or two ago I think). Plus, the way he worded it makes it seem like he's confirming it.

They removed the Havok? Odd. Would like to see more vehicles in the game, even if they aren't really needed.
