Well, that's the downfall of every competitive game, isn't it? People start finding stupidly overpowered combinations, to the point where the game is not enjoyable anymore.

Although you do have to admit it can be quite satisfying to sit back and watch a bunch of hackers or IAP addicts insta-gib each other over and over again...

You could get close if you buy the hd version of a square enix game.

Yeah. That's amusing.

Until they find your vantage point, that is

There are some additional combinations which more closely resemble the boss-killing combo moreso than the RPG Combo, but suffice it to say, both of the things I've just mentioned are nastier than the Trinity on its own -- usually because they both involve using the Trinity itself within the weapon cycle =.="

Oh, watching is one thing, but listening to the subsequent flame wars is quite another...it's like watching that place-we-must-not-speak-of all over again...

Hey all. Undead, it seems like the combos are moving into PvP, eh? Do you reckon anyone has tried out a shotgun-combo? I remember we had a ton of fun making that one up.

I gave the shotgun combo a spin a while ago, and one of its weaknesses became apparent fairly quickly: its power is severely impaired beyond point-blank range. Its potential killing speed is on par with the Grenade Combo (both of which kill faster than the RPG Combo in controlled test situations), but they're incredibly problematic to use properly if you're moving and if you're not at close range.

The "Twin Snipers" one has been doing the rounds for a little while now, though variants of the RPG Combo are also rising into prominence. More shockingly, however...some guys are using something which resembles a modified version of the Synthesis (both snipers, a couple of RPGs, the Trinity and the Black Disk). I thought that thing was meant to be unwieldy, but it appears effective...
