Marineanimal's Super Duper Res Node Ambush!

Hows that for a title?
Simple: you are a skulk, at a marine resource node, and you know a marine might be coming (maybe it's the node closest to their base). You bite it a few times to alert the commander, then move to an ambush spot. But you keep biting (bite the wall or ceiling so it sounds like you are still killing the node). If they don't have motion tracking or a super surround system with 30 speakers, they likely will be looking for you at the node and thats when you make your move.

    Even with just headphones, I can easily tell where you are just from the sound. you doing the extra biting will just ensure that I know where you are and thus help me kill you. this will only work on novice marines.

    Nice try, though.

    I agree that most of the time I know where the bite sound is coming from, node or no node.

    Prefer to just chuckle a couple of times and back off. Marine gets super paranoid and slows down, then I just parasite him and then pick him off at my leisure.

    Although this post would explain those numerous times I've shot a skulk who was apparently biting the wall for no reason.


    Damn straight I'm a foul beast. Don't you forget it.

    I prefer using the RT as a shield while eating the shield to be honest. Usually less experienced marines would run at me and I'd bite their ankles off. wink-fix.gif

    A much better plan is to get a buddy to cover you. You bite the rt, he lands on the marine's head when he comes after you.

    Yeah, same here. That can fool maybe nub rines or some people with mono audio system :/. I can clearly hear those skulks behind my back etc.

    this move owns.

    I saw it first in the France vs Sweden game (IIRC) in 2.01.

    To any doubters: you'd be surprised how effective it is when done right. Really damn effective smile-fix.gif


    The skulk who did it (samah or something, on team France) killed 3 world class marines in a row...

    This tactic will instantly get you killed. tounge.gif

    Did you know when you bite something, you have the another sound attached to it? With your faking biting, I know you're not biting the RT at all.

    You can ususally stand a deccent chance of killing marines if you just sit behind the rt biteing it. If your backs to the wall reverse so your on the wall not on the rt, this means you can jump straight for them instead of having to turn 90 and run round the rt. Its always nice to kill the noob rine and go back to happily munching in peace. As for biteing the wall.......ill leave that particular technique to you.
    claxt for the win...

    Tower, seems you havent played NS long enough. Go play on your own server and bite the wall, then bite the RT. They make the same noise IIRC. So as long as the skulk is smart enough to know how to bite the wall, he's making the same noise.

    Frankly this tactic is hit and miss. You fool some of of the people some of the time. It's nothing solid like bhop.

    What does work however is if you get someone else to make the biting noises while you use the biting as cover noise to sneak or bhop around the map behind them. As soon as you catch them from behind and they turn, the skulk making noise turns the corner and catches them in a pincer attack. Dead marines.

    Covering noise is the poor-man's silence. When I know someone is in a vent waiting for the marines to divert their attention, I'll bite a wall just to make too much noise for the marines to hear the other skulk.

    Of course, there's always Bind R Stopsound. <3

    ... you dont continue biting when the marine is nearby. when the marine gets into hearing range you bite a few times and stop... then when they hear no alien footsteps they assume ur listening. i highly doubt you can hear where they are from 3 corners away so keep ur WTHbbqhax headphones out of here.

    Swift Idiot: Biting the wall will also be different if you hear it properly. Also, you don't need MT to know where skulks are. The biting sound will get you totally exposed. I don't bite the wall cuz that's stupid. On the server I play in, ppl actually use sound to play. Hence, you'll see alot of foreigner calling ppl on my server HAXOR!!!

    BTW, he's talking about taking the marine guy down himself. He never mention any things about teamwork. If it's teamwork, I'll just bite the RT and let me fellow aliens comrades camp. They see me, they fire me and not my camping pals. It's the lure and kill strat which is very commonly used in clan games.

    PS. I've been playing since 1.04. Don't simply assume things. smile-fix.gif

    This is once again a nice non-matter trick to do once a while and have good laughs to it..... <3 these little things bring the game alive

    Try this this is the best you can ever make, you know armory humpers?
    You know cloak? In co_ sneak to top of the armory(not that hard..) and wait for few rines to come hump your on instant range while they are slowed down by the ammo loading.... sooooo fun biggrin-fix.gif biggrin-fix.gif biggrin-fix.gif

    =D nice one
    <DOOManiac> my main thing about clans is they never seem to actually have fun when playing
    <DOOManiac> even if they're winning they are so caught up in the seriousness of the situation they don't have fun. its like work. where's the fun in that?
