Anyone else think the Mantis is OP?

Not OP at all, I can take it out cross-map with 2 clips of my DMR.

Not really. You just have to either sit and shoot at it a while from across the map or coordinate your team. They go down really fast with 5 or 6 guys all shooting it at once.

There is so many ways to take them down. Just think, if an entire team was actually smart and played the game right, they would all use plasma pistols. The other team's Mantis won't even make it to the hill on Ragnarok.

Thank You. All the people i play with run straight towards it trying to jack it and just get killed. It annoys the hell out of me.

You should probably get a team together instead of playing with randoms.

No, definitely not. If anything their weak. The time it takes to even get in it you could already be dead haha.

They aren't weak at all, DMR bullets can get through a helmet in 4 bullets (including shields), it takes about 28 to kill a Mantis, that's the equivalent to 7 kills, so therefore it's not weak, but rather strong, but not OP.

The mantis is more of a defensive vehicle than a offensive one. So many kids just rush in the middle of the maps with the assumption that it's invincible. If you play objective with it on defense, that flag is going nowhere.

Mantis should just be covered a little and then you can get a lot of kills
