WANTED WES wrote:As a Level 15 Scientist, I really hate how long the Drain, Shockwave and also Sentry abilities can take to recharge. Usually I have to unload everything when I enter a fight just to be able to have a chance against those leaders and soldier types. Then I end up running, if I can, and go and hide for what seems like forever before I can enter the fight again. A scientist is useless without his special abilities.
I wish kills would count as energon refill for your abilities, just like the single player mode.
I know what you mean. Its all about Strategy.
What Ive learned is when you enter a fight, release your sentry immediately and throw a health grenade to dome yourself and melee everyone. Then use your shockblast and then again with melee, Melee, MELEE!!! (you may have to use your shockblast first depending on how many enemies are surrounding you as you enter the fight). It all has to be done one right after another very quickly. You should last for awhile while your protected by your health grenade and while your Sentry is helping you out.
When your special abilities have ran out, and if your still alive, Transform and take off and go into Sniper mode. Find a nice hiding spot somewhere up high and use your Photon Rifle and take out enemies from a far. You can even transform into jet mode and take them out with your jet mode weapon (that actually does more damage, Ive killed alot by doing that). *Remember you are a jet. You have the most coveted ability of them all.......you can FLY
When your special abilities have been restored, Transform and go back and enter a fight and repeat. Another good tip is let your team mates beat the hell out of the other team for you then fly down and sneak in into the middle of the fight and use your Shockblast to take out 2 or 3 enemies at once. Since your team already gave them enough damage you can finish them off with your shockblast.
You should also use your upgrades like Increasing your Shockblast, Sentry armor and power, and Health grenade duration.
Theres no clear cut way to achieve not dying but hoepfully this will help you live a bit longer and kill some enemies along the way.

If you dont want to be whatever campaigne your placed into then exit the game before it starts and keep entering different games untill your in the campaigne you want.
