stupid mistakes daggers make
Posted 13 December 2007 - 10:03 AM
One that i see a lot of people make is to move too far ahead, when they're not really sure what they're going to do. Then they get stuck out there because they thought they'd look cool. The only real advice i have for people like that is to know where the enemy is, and don't be stupid.
Another i see alot, is people trying to bunker without support. This is the stupidest thing one could possibly do. Unless you've got cover and your taking the enemy by surprise, don't bunker.
Another i see alot is people going out there with the wrong equipment. DO NOT try to play dagger with the wrong equipment. This means attacking too heavy or too light. Im not saying that you should let your gear decide your position, but do not play dagger with a pump, or a gun thats too heavy for you (literally, too heavy, not speed wise) or with a pistol, or with equipment that doesn't help you. Don't wear a huge pod pack, or use a barrel thats so short that it does't help you. A 3in barrel only hurts your accuracy guys, and it doesn't help you move faster. Also dont go crazy with milsim stuff that limits your ammo or anything else.
The final and stupidist thing i see happening is people who are either pushed into becoming a dagger, or who want to be a dagger, but don't really play like a dagger. DONT LET PEOPLE TELL YOU YOUR TOO TALL OR FAT TO PLAY DAGGER!!!! Its a style, not a shape. vice versa, dont try to be a dagger if you don't play like one. Saying your a dagger and then buying all the gear is okay, but only if your going to be up there bustin butt in the front lines. IF YOU CANT STAND THE HEAT, GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN!!

Overall a good post, but I disagree with this part.
Equipment has little or nothing to do with how you play this position - its 100% attitude.
I routinely play Dagger with a pump or even just a couple of pistols and do just fine.

i agree. pumps are perfect for dagger.
but i also don't believe in the specialops positions. I think it's more of a marketing ploy honestly. I'd rather have a team of well rounded players who can adapt to any situation.

anyway, I might be diggin myself in ahole, but i do any position with my generally speaking ..ghuillie-MP5-Machie gun. I might just be saying im a sbre , but sabres are daggers too, there everything.
I do not read the specops dagger thing beacause after reading it, it doesnt help you tactic wise, because a newb knows this stuff off playing Halo. Its just to make you buy the guns. it irritates me. they dont even come up with any new tactics to help us like they claim to do so much.
Amen, my sermon is done.
I have 20% warn , im such a rebel!

As far as equipment goes, it doesn't matter. I can think of a few guns that would seriously cause a detriment to your skills as a dagger.
For example, a marker with a long stock and a 22-inch barrel. Maybe even an A5 made to look like a saw,(box full of pods, a bipod, etc.). In most cases, you'll be good to go.
