    Me as a defender can't say much but I used to main enforcer, so as the natural enemy of Speeders I can tell my opinion. Hit and run on tesla enforcers. Anything else on others. Tesla shield makes enfo much slower than an ob+nitro/double ob speeder. I occasionally got defeated by hit-n-run speeder, nowadays I simply shout for help and hunt Speeders down with teammates.

    I think I’m a duelist because I like to circle rather than to hit and run. I just recently tried frost torp so maybe that’s a assassin

    Why not be both lol? That’s what I do. In the spaces where you can’t invade, just deal some constant damage playing it safe at a distance. When you see an opening, go for it. It’s silly to call yourself one or the other, unless you play like double carronade or something lol.

    People mostly are mixed role. However, assassin mains almost always run when chased, while duellists don't run. If someone is a duellist and running away, he's just asking for a bullet in the back lel.

    Looks like I'm an assassin speeder then! I keep trying to land my shots as quick as I can and then get the HECK outta there. I just can't duellist... keep dying/losing lots of health that way.

    @TheAntiSnipe likes to come up with catchy names but the truth is, I'm both... as most speeders are.

    The primary target is an assassination. I want to be lurking in the weeds when my team scores a big hit on the enemy. Then I want to get in, make the kill, and get out again.

    But in actual combat play I also encounter foes in open water and then "dueling" is required. If I'd special built my boat for that I'd probably be using dual std cannons instead of flare/blast and I'd reconsider tesla bolt over the second nitro. But as a duelist I would face the same problem. Somebody's got to go in and nail that wounded fixer and who's it going to be other than a speeder?

    I do both stand near cover land flares blasts whenever I see someone near 2k hp, move in harass him/her, get the killing shot, get out. Top up my health if needed get back in action.

    Just backing up Shadow Moon's statement, some examples are:

    Assassin: Blast + Flare or double Blast
    Duellist: Cannon + Sniper or Carronade + Swift Torp
    Support: any red item and Frost Launcher/Blaster + Tesla Bolt/Nitro + OB
