The Battle Gorge

Can anyone tell me good upgrades to get in co_ games when I am trying to make a battle gore. And can someone tell me good strategies for battle gorging on co_ maps. Thanks

    Web and adren.

    Don't expect to actually kill anything, but a permanent combat gorge really does help the fades and onos.
    RAHHH!!! BUFF SKULKS!

    I second that, a very annoying combo for marines. Make sure you dont waste the web tho. Celerity is handy so you can get around quickly (and not be so much of a bullet magnet). Celerity also helps you to quickly run into their base and bile the chair a few times. Obviously regen and cara so you can take more damage. Focus could be helpful in getting those long distance support kills but I perfer the faster rate of fire myself.

    the only way to battle gorge is to find a server with lerk lift and become a alien bomber / webber flying down the halls webbing everything in sight... its lots of fun

    ffs

    as a base, you need web + adren if you want to be able to make a gigantic sticky trap on co maps. Other than just get whatever you want.

    battle gorge in CO = 2nd hive ab + 3rd hive ab + adrenaline

    After that, focus is good for resupply marines since it kills in two shots with zero armor. Carapace to cover your behind. Optional stuff.

    adrenalin, abi2 and abi3 =4

    Thats the benchmark. If you want to have fun i sugget for the rest in this order:

    celerity (use the force gorge!)
    cara(you wanna stay alive)
    focus(must.)
    regeneration(easy to stay near ms)
    Scent of fear(good for ninjas)
    redemption( luv the omg rines ^^)

    yep...focus spit is just....no

    actually a battle gorge with web and adren can seriously be a _battle_ gorge.

    meaning that if u are decent at gorging...u can pretty much kill most non-ha non-jp marines without resupply with relative ease.

    webweb - spit spit spit - webweb - spit spit spit... that usually enables to u kill any lone rine.

    battle gorges in co_ = suck.

    by the time u get 4 abilties and adrenline. marine will have armor upgraded, resupply or even jp ha. though web is annoying, you still rarely get a kill as gorge in co_.

    in ns_ thats another story

    skills path, unlock, unlock, adren, save point to be ready to gorge (thats 5 points for thouse that are counting). then in any order carpace celerity regen. always have a point on hand to gorge.

    when gorge do not spam webbing all over. the marines can avoide and remove all webing that is seen. go ahead and put up some webbing in the hive but always leave at lest one strand avalible. the true power of web is to use it on the marines not on the map. do not spam the button when trying to web marines, you will not web much and you will end up with webbing in places that will never be triped.

    do not make masive web traps. all you need to kill a marine is 3 strands in a trap or 4 to 5 strands if you web the marine on the go (this is takeing into acount that they only have armor 2, resupply and are at full health). if you can land ALL your shots on the marine he will die. if you miss even one, resuply will save him and you will have to retreat to recharge your adren.

    if you must block doorways put all webbing on the horisontal (left right. not up down or corner to corner). 3 strands on the ground one in the middle and one near the top.

    as for traps... my fav traps are vent traps. JP's love vents. look at the map. are there any places where the vent opens up to the map where you could make a JP fall into the map area with one web? if so place one strand in the vent opening far enough away that he will fall when webed. add 3 strands in the area he will land (exstend the strands to cover the hallway and be sure to place one strand near the top of the hall way).

    Now THIS is a cute thread.
    The Gorge is my all-time favourite alien, simply because the gorge is BEST.
    Lets face it; Gorges are fat, slow, cute and cuddly. They spit at people. They ROCK.
    I've started a clan (Camping as Gorges) to support the gorge-ous creatures and to create a standing army of fat aliens spitting their mean rine enemies to death. So far so good; We're a NS: Combat clan and we've got most of our members in top ten spitkillings (We haven't been very active gorges the last month though, I'm at second spot with 61 killings during the last month, behind another member with 64 killings).

    So, what to do is, obviously, to get adrenaline and web. That's a FACT, not an option.
    Don't bum rush. Be sneaky. Strafe around a corner and spit for a bit to lure the marines near, while having a few fellow aliens or some well placed webs ready.
    Get regen and celerity. You'll both reach the rines and their base faster, and you'll be able to run off better. Carapace is a good choice as well.

    Don't underestimate your spitting ability. If you've practiced the art of the Battlegorge, a single rine with and LMG shouldn't be much of a problem early on, as the spit deals a lethal 30 damage per shot, meaning the rine will be dead after about 5 hits if he hasn't gotten too much armour or resupply.
    Healing is a good thing. Works well on the enemies as well.
    Bile bombing is neat. Leave your fellow aliens to fight at the front entrance of the map and sneak in the back way, then bomb away. When rines are getting near, flee while webbing, hopefully catching one or two of those rines, rendering them immoblie for some time.
    Evolve in vents and spit on passing rines! Be sure to run into the vent so that they won't hit you back, though. Should stall them for a few seconds, at least.

    Once you have web, you can take on several rines. I took down 2 rines alone as a gorge, using web and spit, both at full health. They both got caught in my web, I started spitting, I re-webbed before they could start shooting again, I started spitting again and so on until they died. Must've been a bit humiliating...

    Anyway, experience is the key to success. Practice a lot and you'll learn what to do. If things won't work out, use Chuckle a lot, and hope that the rines will get scared and run off.

    Finishin touch: In the eternal battle of asrifle.gif and pudgy.gif , make sure that the pudgy.gif will be victorious! And forever and ever, Camp as Gorges!

    sh.. don't tell.. tounge.gif

    But indeed, a webbing gorge is the pown.
    Also so many underestimate spit.
