Might be a dumb question, but how do I get the flier chassis in in multiplayer? Is it DLC? I looked at the Xbox Live marketplace and didn't see any seeker or aerialbot names in the characters listed. I see people playing with seeker bodies a lot though.

There are six bodies total for the Scientist Class, three for Autobots, three for Decepticons. For the Decepticons, you have Starscream's body (Also Skywarp and Thundercracker's) which you have by default, Slipstream, which you get for completing the Decepticon campaign, and Shockwave, who is DLC. All the Autobot bodies for Scientist are unlocked by default. Remember that the bodies aren't named after the characters, but since PSN is being a **** I can't find out the chassis names from here.

I have a frustrating question. What does this symbol mean? Its circled and pointed with an arrow in the picture below. Everytime I play War For Cybertron in multiplayer mode I get this symbol constantly. I cant find anywhere on web explaining this symbol. I cant even begin to explain what it is to even ask about it. I literally had to hook my PS3 up to my computer so I could take snap shot of it so I could show evidence of what it is.
I thought it was my battery in my controller being low so I charge constantly but yet it still appears. I dont know what it means but everytime it comes on my screen the game itself starts acting weird and things start lagging and skipping. Totally messes up my perception.
Its only with War for Cybertron that I get this.
Anybody have any idea?

It means you're having connection issues. It shows up either before you're disconnected or before and probably during a big lag spike.

I figured it had something to do with the connection as well yet it only happens with War for Cybertron.
Does this mean that its not on my end? That the games server is bad?

Could be either way, but WfC's connection issues are quite notorious.

I get that symbol alot. It is an idicator of slow connection speed to the game host. Either the host is to far from you during peak net usage or they just have a sloooooooooooooooooooow connection speed.

Another question. In multiplayer mode, how do you get the big huge turrent machine gun? You know the one that is SO BIG you cant walk or move that fast with it nor keep it after you transform. Where does it come from? Sometimes I see others with it and I wonder, "how the hell or where did they get that?" What class has that? Its not listed as a choice of weapon in customization for any class.
Ive only had the joy of coming across it a few times and used it cuz someone who had it died and I took it. Its awesome in multiplayer battle. You become invisible with it.
Can someone explain to me how do you get it.

7 kill gift as Scientist class. I got it few times but cannot hold on to it for too long because everybody saw I had it and wanted it. Can't get far enough with Scientist's short 3 block life.

Has anybody tried WFC game in the public Wi-Fi place, such as hotel? Generally hotel's Wi-Fi isn't fast so I wonder if that will affect multi players connection quality.

Trying to figure out how to spend my evening time in a hotel room for my upcoming business trip.

Ok So I maxed out all my classes in multiplayer thanks to this 4x XP weekend going on right now. Im level 25 in everything but None of my levels restarted and I dont have a little Prime/Matrix symbol by my name. Thats what I worked so hard for.
I even played another round of Conquest thinking it might make the symbol appear if I had more points to add in starting over.... and NOTHING.
WTF GIVES!
WHERES MY PRIME MODE!!

The multiplayer menu has a thing marked Teletran I for leaderboards, you activate Prime Mode there if I'm not mistaken.

I believe that the actual turret machine gun gun exists on the space debris map. Nebulon shock cannon is the big missile launcher scientist prize, but I killed someone on space debris and actually picked up the turret machine gun. I think it's lying around in that outer rim/corridor somewhere.

He either got it through the 7-kill streak, or, assuming he wasn't a scientist, by killing the Scientist who spawned it. Turret cannons don't spawn in multiplayer otherwise.

I've been seeing alot of people this weekend on the Streets map with the machine gun turret as well, guessed its a hidden pickup somewhere as its definately not the nucleon shock cannon that the scientists get.

its one of the soldiers abilities. once you hit leval 23 you unlock "Path Blaster" which allows your ammo beacon to deploy that BFG.

BTW, went PLATNIUM in War for Cybertron. Just thought i'd brag :grin:

So i am going to a friends house next week and I would like to know.....
Is it possible to play Escalation as a co-op on a the same console in the same room? I really wanna show him Escalation as I think he would enjoy it.
Can this be done?

You can't do split-screen co-op, this includes Campaign, Multiplayer, and Escalation.

So you can do co-op in Escalation but just not split screen?

No, two people cannot play on the same console. In any case, co-op would be impossible without split-screen, due to the way aiming works with the camera.

Damn then this game sucks when it comes to playing with friends in person as well as transferring. I cant even copy files for when I go out of town so ill have all my customs when I play on my friends console. All my achievements and customs are just stuck on my console forever? And god help me if I ever get a new ps3. I'll have to just play and start all over.
So there is no point in even taking my game to my friends place unless we just wanna sit there and watch EACH OTHER play.
LAME.

Achievements are saved to your profile, so those will transfer over to any PS3 you log into with your PSN account. Save files can be transferred through USB, if character data isn't saved there, it's saved to your profile as well.
