Jackbot kills

#1 Posted by Empirepaintball (1392 posts) -

Jacktbots are menaces, especially in Overtime. I've found the most effective way to kill them is to use the Assasin's grapple from the back and then have a deployed Gunner clean him up. Anyone else come up with different, more efficient attacks?

I normally play the tank. I like to use the product grenade to stun the jackbot then use death blossom to finish him off. It is actually quite effective.

Sniper and Assassin: Grapple and then take down secondary weapon or Ejector. I haven't tried this, but I think Sniper traps might free or at least slow Jackbots. Could someone confirm this?
  
Gunner and Tank: Deploy and let loose. Hit it with a product grenade to slow it down if you are Tank. Don't both doing this though if you haven't upgraded Deploy, which you normally shouldn't go as Tank. In that case just Product Grenade and fire. If it is even level 2 though, I'd go into Deploy. 
 
Assault and Support: Use bombs and Airstrikes. Try to set up your firebase if you haven't as Support, the extra firepower will help to take it down more quickly. Also remember that Air Strikes can't go through ceilings, so take that into account when attaching the markers.

Jump up and down as an Assassin, then once you have juice, you destroy them really fast. Just don't forget the jump.
