Hi All, I play mostly on Emerald so some of you probably have seen me running around as "agentpuhpul" I started off playing infiltrator and to this day, it still remains one of my favorite classes. However, there's always something that bothered me, that I could never pull off effectively. The vast majority of my effective infiltrator (with an smg) gameplay is done on the outskirts of battle, so that usually relegates me to outside of bases, picking off stragglers. Rarely do you see an infiltrator who's relatively in the mix with the rest of the troops, indoors, and doing well. I figured out a big reason why: Indoors, or in enclosed bases (cough esamir) there are just way too many corners and ways people can get LOS on you. If they don't have LOS on you, playing as an aggressive SMG infiltrator (running around, looking for people) will eventually have you turn a corner into, say, an orion heavy. This gets worse, the bigger the fights get, because, unlike outside fights, people are funneled into a single general area, which makes it harder to pick off people without getting spotted yourself. *as such, defending a base as an smg infiltrator is usually way easier for me, than assaulting a base as an infiltrator (because in defending a base, the enemy has to walking from outside, to indoors, whereas assaulting a base, I am forced to go inside) I'm starting to wonder if the infiltrator is simply not suited for indoor fights? I can easily pull a 3+ KDR as a heavy in those indoor fights, but struggle to get 2 as an infiltrator. However, the reverse is true when the fight is taken outside (ie mountains, around trees/bushes, etc) Does anyone else have any advice for being combat effective indoors? Or even in closed bases like AMP stations, biolabs? Here are a few things I figured out. 1) Lay mines, everywhere 2) max and lay a motion spotter, and stay within that area 3) *relates to #2* don't overextend (overextending is easier to get away with outdoors) 4) *relates to #3* walk more, and take your time (outdoor play I'm running around more to look for targets, running indoors gets me caught into bad spots) 5) always be the one to shoot first, or target people who are shooting at friendlies. 6) try to stay on the edge of the base or a place that will give you positional advantage over people (ie, amp stations, the outer wall areas) As you can see, I've figured out a number of things, but I'm still not getting the results I'd like. I would love to hear from the community, particularly experienced, dedicated infiltrator players. Am I wrong to think Infiltrators can be played effectively this way? What am I doing wrong? Thanks guys!
