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.


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?
You mean you would just have to share the 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.

Maybe. I know achievements are stored to your profile and game saves can be transferred using USB, but I can only speculate on character levels. Seeing as how it saves saves your game after every single change to your multiplayer classes (Including experience) I'd guess it would probably be in the game's save file, but I don't know for sure.

No, I said they're stored on your profile. Loading your profile on another PS3 won't do anything.

I can attest to what happens if you move to another PS3 because mine died and I had to get a new one recently.

Campaign progress is gone but all my multiplayer progress was stored. So I had to start over on the single player but all my ranks and customizations were right there waiting for me when I signed into the new machine.

So that answers it; Multiplayer progress and achievements are stored to your profile, Campaign progress is saved to its own save file.

Ok what about DLC add-ons? I'm at my friends place like I said and everything seemed to transfer over easily when I logged in under my account except my DLC. I then went to my downloads list in the ps store and re-downloaded them again, it says install complete but when I go to play the game they are not there.

Something must have gone wrong, since PS Store downloads are also saved to your profile. Try reinstalling it.

If you mean going back to the PS store and to my Download list Ive done that numerous times.
Is there a different way to install the DLC add-ons in the PS3 Menu?

That also have occured for me. I don`t really think it`s a glitch or anything, but rather a prize, so that you don`T have to screw around with a Soldier, when you really master the Leader.


Myself have both Prime Mode, AND my characters are on 25, so XP is no care for me. Only things that means something in the XP events are the uprise of players. More to kill...

Can someone Please explain to me the use of the Leaders Frag Launcher weapon. When I see other use it they fire it and the "frags" automatically explode on contact, yet whenever I use it, the "frags" just sit there stuck to what/whomever meanwhile the opponent is shooting me with my frags just stuck to them. How do you make them go off?

Hit L1, if you're on PS3. I dunno about 360 or PC, though. They're probably not being set off "Automatically," they're just hitting the "blow 'em up" button as soon as they see the shot hit.
