    I have been playing around with the Combat Engy lately, looking for different ways to have fun with it. If you're a bit bored with the usual Combat Engy tactics, try this out.

    Go 3 talent points in It's Me Again, 1 in X-1. Then put the next 2 talent points in Boom Head Shot. Grab the nearest Crowbar you see....

    If there are no Infested Terrans around, just go bloody nuts with the Crowbar and Boom Head Shot. It's Me Again will provide you with the nice damage buff. If Infested Terrans are present in the mob, just get the Medic to shield you before going in. Even better, if you have an Escape equipped Recon available, get them to cast Escape once the Medic's shields have run out.

    With my 4 weapon mods increasing damage and It's Me Again stacking, I get lovely red 130s appearing above my head per hit :D It destroys anything below the level of an Agron very nicely and quickly.

    **Edit: Ok, I'm including Agrons too. Just got caught in an Agron cam, hit Boom Head Shot and raped all the Agrons in about 3 seconds.

    Yyyyep. Crowbar Engineer is very, very silly. There have been times where I simply told the team to cover me and I did Airlock hordes with a Crowbar in one hand and a Combat Knife in the other. Newbies didn't know what to think.

    But they can't do it as "safely" as the Combat Engineer can. BHS automatically stuns non-heroics, soooo... you can just go in bashing.

    Miracle NOTD Staff: Assistant of many things

    Pros:
    - Very high damage if done properly
    - Looking at someone destroying everything with just crowbar is fun

    Cons:
    - Needs good support from the team
    - You get hit more often

    An example of Kenno's melee Engineer build in action is shown in the replay attached, our Marksman fell asleep during Perses fight and did not OSOK or shoot it once, Kenno filled in for the damage loss, although there were a few close moments ^^
