Gotta be honest I like killing Jackals.
The Hunter has become the hunted


#1422

inset Jacks voice THE JACKAL FEARS NONE!


#1423

So how does the jackal work exactly? ive seen through teammates eyes and they know what theyre doing, but im just lost as to how it works…


#1424

Apparently you tag foot prints and they ping the person dunno how long it lasts or the cd on it though.


#1425

ive seen that there are three little bars at the top, and when a ping was used, one of them went away. i have no clue how to use a ping or how fast they come back, if at all…


#1426

You activate the monitor, you can see footprints that heatsinked. This means the brighter the footprints, red, the closer they are. The opposite is for lighter/darker colors. You have the ability to scan up to three footprints. This pings the enemy you scanned, identifies them if they haven’t been spotted.


#1427

There are a total of 4 pings, one on the initial scan, then 3 over a period of 30secs.


#1428

So you stare at the footprints? thats how it works? and do they come back?


#1429

You don’t stare at them. You scan them with the action button depending on your control scheme. Should be X normally on Xbox. Once the prints are scanned they do not come back due to the amount of time between scans.


#1430

so you only have a total 3-4 scans per round?

ok, x on xbone


#1431

You only have 3 per round.


#1432

ok.

/10dings!


#1433

god damnit alt + enter doesn’t let you change your character anymore…


#1434

How do you eject a black mirror?


#1435

You can’t if I am correct


#1436

what do you mean by eject? Cause you can have the glass fall out if you shoot the little tank of gas. But I don’t think Mira can retrieve it and use it again like castle can.


#1437

I meant release the glass. That was all I needed to know, thanks.


#1438

Most damage sources can eject the mirror by hitting the canister, even Twitch Drones.


#1439

Just got Frost last night and can safely say she might be my new defending main


#1440

I like her. Her best place to place her traps are right underneath windows. Her SMG is just right.

And now I’m rambling on and on, having lost sight of what I was originally talking about.
