Although you say the Grenade launchers are crap and most of them are, I have to say the M32 is pretty decent compared to the rest. Combined with something like Corrosive rounds it can usually get an enemy in acid once per encounter due to the high number of grenades it can dish out. Additionally, the grenades are unlike ones of the Thumper's in that the explode right when the hit the enemy rather than sticking to him, leaving no time lag. With it, I managed to beat the final mission at level 18 or so as the Juggernaught. It was very useful in dousing the whole group of three in acid and killing them slowly well I either sat around camping on the sides or waited to respawn.

However, I must say that the Spas 12 is definitely a ****** gun and in almost any situation is the perfect gun for the job. Its fire rate (for a shotgun) and damage are both spectacular. That bit about the M32 was just because I didn't want it to have a bad rep like the rest of the grenade launchers :P

Also, I rather like using the throwing knife as a secondary weapon. It gives the Juggernaught a useful long range weapon at its disposal when all its primary weapons have fairly short ranges. I can rapid fire them at will, and since they bounce off walls, I don't need to aim very well. It provides an excellent balance to the Spas 12, and is definitely in my opinion the best secondary weapon by far compared to melee weapons and bad pistols.

And Mission 7 is so annoying. I had to play it for so long to beat it on Hard!

the problem with going along the bottom on defection is when you go to grab the flag all the enemies you killed will spawn on top of you and kill you, you just won't be able to kill all 6 fast enough to leave a big enough window to get in and out.

Yeah, but that's how I beat the quest I ran along the bottom. That's how the player in the video beats it and he is playing on insane. I suppose it doesn't matter too much how you go to and from the flag, but I felt less vulnerable running along the bottom. I new the enemies would be in front of me so I could more easily kill them. And the enemies above me, for the most part could not shoot down on me. Running along the top I was often shot at and killed from a distance and I found it harder to kill my enemies when going to the flag that way.

The strategy was somewhat like, go along the bottom killing everything in sight. Get the killstreak (true stealth) and activate it. The enemies respawn but now I am invisible. I jump on to the platform and then kill the enemies from up there. Grab the flag and run back.

I suppose the trick was to leave the enemies that are on top or the other side of the map alone. Kill the remaining that are by the flag, then grab the flag and run out of there before they respawn.

I have to say the M32 is pretty decent compared to the rest. Combined with something like Corrosive rounds...

Yeah,It sounds like a solid technique. I wish I had better skill and more knowledge of how the game works (or how it was programmed). I feel like I may have been wrong in saying elemental attachments for guns are worthless, but I haven't really used them to know how they work, but looking at their numbers it seemed to be appropriate for what I said. If I get a chance to experiment I will definitely update the guide.

The Mercenary should have a machine gun. The rockets and Especially Grenade launchers fall short. The machine un works really well because you do not have to account for a curve. I use the cerebus. (probably spelled wrong)
The sniper use bolt action rifles.
I use With the JUG. a Shotgun. Again no curve.
The secondary to look for i believe is the throwing knives, they have massive damage and they can hit around corners and bounce.

You can change the appearance of your character by changing your name. To change your name go to the main menu, click on soldiers, and then click on profile (in the upper left corner, it looks like a piece). You will be on a screen where you see the a bio for the solider, their stats, and the solider. Above the solider you will see a place to enter your name. This is the place to change your name and play as the secret skins.

Belle (a moderator)
Black Mage
C.F. Kane
Coreleon
Rocky (Rocky2013)
Jo Jo

and Poseidon.

Although they might have chosen their usernames to reference something (like I did), these names are just the names of users.

Yeah, I will have to rephrase that they are just the usernames, but that the usernames may reference or coincidentally reference pop culture.

I hope that most my advice as been relatively accurate and I am definitely glad to see highly skilled players contribute, offering correction, more information, and different or better strategies.
I don't know how you figured out or got the secret skin information, plus all the other great tips, but I will definitely have to put a special thanks in for you in one of the updates. :]

If you want highly skilled talk to JuiceBox, I know on R2 she had a KD vastly superior to mine.

Note: her AG username is JuiceyBox
