The Edge Duel Spawns
« on: June 14, 2010, 04:18:08 PM »
Quake 2 - The Edge - initial spawns
I noticed a few of the players I've been playing lately are doing some odd things at the start of the game so I decided to make this quick article for what I do at the beginning of each duel on the map q2dm1 or The Edge.


Water Area:

1. behind health shards: This spawn I jump straight to the stairs WITHOUT getting the shards and run up towards mega so I can DJ to yellow and if the enemy is not coming up the lift or in the room I get chaingun then megahealth.. otherwise I get mega and fight for chain or jump to outside yellow if that is still up.

2. behind 2 25h packs: Jump to the stairs and do the same as above


Mega Room:

1. behind hand grenades: I grab at least one of the nades and run towards chain while getting ready to possibly throw a nade at a charging SSG spawner.

2. above chaingun: obviously I drop and get chain and the items in mega room.. my fav spawn :D I also hear for a charging SSG spawner and prepare to fight him in the corner with the stairs as cover.


Other Spawns:

1. upper rocket launcher: I have seen a few good players turn around and get shards > hyper > yellow at this spawn and have done this a couple times also but I personally think the obvious choice is better. strafe to get rl and charge mega.. if he's at chain I usually rj to get mega and possibly fight or run to outside yellow somehow.. otherwise i dj to armor and play like the water area spawns.

2. super shotgun: grab and charge to mega (practice the stair jumps if you seem to get stuck on it alot) and fight an enemy getting chaingun unless you're a nit and don't think u can win then get the outside yellow.. obviously if he's not at chain spawn get control of mega room first.

3. underground: in duels I tend NOT to get the machinegun cause it wastes a second which you need to race for the lift if he spawns near lower RL. I then go up lift and get chaingun unless he gets a mega room spawn then I'll get lower rl.

4. above lower RL: most ppl including me jump straight to the drop down to get lower rl then to the lift. I have also turned left and ran to SSG then to mega room which had mixed results. Mess around with these two and find one you like better.

5. next to lift: turn and go straight up lift to get control of chain/mega room first.. if u hear him pick up chaingun while going up the lift, grab gl, hyper, and get yellow.. otherwise grab the GL and quickly jump into chaingun and use the GL to defend while getting it if you need to.

6. behind bullets and normal shotgun: I usually run pass the hand grenades for sound cue purposes and to save half a second to get to lift/room.. if enemy gets ssg or upper rl I usually get lower rl first.



Sorry if I missed some spawns or tips I can give but I hope some newer players will find this a little useful. Good luck fragging!

what to do off the initial spawn is one of the first things I found out that I needed to learn when trying to get better at dueling (with pretty much no experience) back when the last NADL was going on.

Deft, haunted and a couple others walked me through rage this way when I asked, and it's helped me drastically every time I've played it since.

Yeah, prophylactics are always an option, specially when you are doing it with something you think it has something "stormy" inside...
Stay safe folks...

You should use a condom first...
If it has hepatitis or gonorrhea or some kind of tropical STD then you may want to be safe first...
