Fixers and Duct Tape

How much duct tape should Fixers be allowed to equip?

  1. None at all

    13.8%
  2. As much as they like, even if it means filling up all the green slots

    51.7%
  3. A limited amount

    34.5%

    I have seen plenty of fixers that only have duct tape in their green slots. Personally, I think this is a problem because instead of healing their teammates, they only heal themselves... which I would say, destroys the purpose of Fixers. Maybe, solutions like setting a limit to the amount of duct tape they can add to their slots would be helpful. What do you think?

    While I prefer my fixers to have NO DUCT TAPES... I believe every player should use which setup they choose :D Hopefully for a good cause, not just to troll :p

    Well that's right, but, some fixers like using them all the time... (Barking Llama let me use his setup for example)

    I think they should add a new boat... A "paladin" boat or something. A ship that can only heal itself, and optionally heal other ships for a very limited amount. That would get rid of the selfish fixers (hopefully). And that way other teammates will know that they shouldn't count on that teammate to heal them, thus resulting in less frustrated players.

    I feel 3x duct tapes is just to troll. Never seen a player use them seriously to win

    That's actually seems like a brilliant idea for an additional ship. They can also just let duct tapes become an item that ONLY that ship can use. Not even Fixers.

    Apparently he's been using them for quite a while.. and still managed to somehow get his infamy over 3K.
    Waiting for him to come and see this, Lol.

    I call this setup the "Passive Aggressor". It's in the prototype stage but I believe it has a bright future. May need to go with a Tesla bolt in place of the overboost, that way you can stun (silence) others while laying mines (traps) for them run into.

    If they increase match duration to 10 mins, this setup will be even more epic.

    I honestly think this setup would be beastly. Having a sniper and a canon, you can melt through speeders and enforcers pretty quick.
    All the while being almost unkillable with all that self healing (over 300 a second?)

    I don't think it would work pre-mk6 though. Need that second weapon slot.

    I will use 3 duct tapes in the future, thats for sure.
    Healing friendly that like to stay at the same place after being spamed again and again and again and again and again and again is to tiring (dude please learn to relocate).

    I can now be more aggressive as i got 2 weapon.

    They could allow duct tape just to heal yourself or another person in your team.

    Just like a shooter can equip all mines, so can a fixer keep their infamy low by using a trash setup. Its by no means overpowered, so why would it need regulation?

    Think about it like this: If the Triple duct tape fixer was running an actual healing setup, he would have a higher infamy and wouldnt be in your game.

    That's a hybrid between defender and selfish fixer I guess
