So today, I will be teaching everyone here who reads this thread how to be a good basilick (Bassywhore)
The most important part for the basilick is the element of surprise. Since aliens have radars and humans donít, it is very wise to hide. Anywhere. on the celling, behind a corner, on inclines or even behind the human. If your radar picks up 1 human, wait till he passes 10 meters or so in front of you. Then, walk towards him SILENTLY! Taunting or jumping will give away your location, so if you are wallwalking, just disable wallwalk. If you pick up more than 1 human, wait until both humans pass. Then, do the same technique on the human further back, then run away, or if the human doesnít notice get him.
The basilick is the alien most suitable for an assassin. When walking up to a human from behind. With the element of surprise, donít make noises (taunts, jumps, slashes ETC). walk directly to him, and when you hear the grab, you lose the element of surprise, but to your advantage. Once you grab him from behind, He will squirm and start spamming shots. Donít worry, just slash away, or even be his hat (headslahes). If there are more than one human, it is highly encouraged to be his hat, and then run, or even kill the other human. 3 humans, you cant win.
The basilicks gas is not to be used 100 times every match, maybe 10 or 20. It is only used for multihuman combat and if you do not have/lost the element of surprise. It slows the human down and disorients them.
When you do not have the element of surprise, run up to the human, moving right and left with gas. When you grab the human from the front, you will do a method that takes the most practice; The spin. You spin around the human from the front to the back, then hat or not.
5. Meat Shields
Probably my invention, the meat shield is used in multihuman combat where the human(s) that you are not aiming at killing see you, and the one you are about to assassinate doesnít. You, instead of hatíing, slash the humans back, while the other human(s) shoot at you to save their colleague. You then spin around the human that you are killing, so that the human(s) trying to save their friend are are on the opposite side of your prey from you, making a meat shield effect. On a case where all humans see you, this method does not work as the meat shield will start shooting you, so either disengage and run, or be a 1337 player and kill them. You may be yelling KS! At the top of your lungs for this method.
When you lose the element of surprise or you killed one human in multihuman combat, you will want to run or engage. If you choose running, look for the nearest incline away from the human or corner. If you find a corner or vent, you can run the hall/vent usually successfully, or method 2. Method 2 is to hide behind a corner/incline and wait. Because of the basilick heal, you will get a chance at step 1., except without the element of surprise. While running away, jump, and move back and forth to dodge bullets, and gas for a mini distraction.
If you ever see an alien running away with red HP on your HUD, it is advised to hide behind a corner, with the alien to heal. The alien will get full HP, reengage the enemy and you can also join the fight for a couple frags.
8. Equipment watch
Always watch what equipment a human has before fully engaging.
+ engage, death percentage is less than 1 percent
++ engage, with a slight chance of death
+++ engage with caution, with a 50% of death without the element of surprise
++++engage with extreme caution, for the elemntt of surprise may not be enough
+++++do not engage. Run
Dragoon++++ (Lol, but seriously no joke)
About grenades (possibly 9.)
if an enemy drops a grenade, INSTANTLY start counting to 4. When youíre done counting to 4, gas the target and jump back (away from the grenade). You should take no/little splash damage from the nade, but the target will take more, but because you gassed them they become slower and have less time to move away from the nade, so itís easier to reengage.
Thanks for reading. I kinda did this in a rush.
