General Tips


Press and hold the black button to talk to only your team.

Unplugging the mike does not prevent dropping.

At least play Grinder before you go online, and learn the controls.

You will suck when you are new. Accept it. It's ok. Don't trash talk.

While playing online does present anonymity, you should always respect your fellow gamers.

Try out each Mech to find the one you like.

Everyone was a newbie at one time. Unless they are idiots or rude help them.

Elementals are fun to play around with with friends, but you should probably not use them online.

Don't stand on top of or near destructible buildings.

When hosting, stay in the game until it is finished.

If you have to leave in the middle of a game, its fine, but make sure to give a reason.

Don't camp spawn points.

Unless they don't grab them after killing, powerups are the person who killed the Mech's.

Don't switch between enemies. Attack one until he is dead or you are.

In not it, killing people who aren't it serves no point unless you are it.

Unless you are only playing the game with your friends, NEVER use a voice filter, it just annoys people.

When hosting, be courteous. Wait until people are ready, and realize your room might not fill up right away.

To counter Mad Cats and other PPC Mechs, get in close to them and circle. It makes it harder for them to lock on to your Mech.

To avoid missiles, step to the side then move forward when they curve toward you.

Especially n Team modes, there is no such thing as kill stealing.
