Seeing as I main HA on VS, I finally got the lock-on AV rocket launcher.

Even nerfed, it's still usefull, but buggy. Some long range shots end up in the ground for no reason.

Could it be due to the addons on vehicles that actually breaks locks for AV? I have no clue if this is the case but when gunning for piper the other day, we let out a nice little cloud and all locks broke on us. Just a thought!

Could well be that; it breaks locks and prevents them for a short time I believe, with a cooldown of 15 seconds if fully certed into.

However, the last time I checked the smokescreen ability uses the defence slot, so you have to sacrifice an armour upgrade option if you are to use it, but that would probably be worth it when lots of people have lock on weapons later on. :)

Mines are 100 certs? I may end up certing them just for this kind of stunt :)

Haha, I love the "VANU VACKBAR" and "DIE INFIDELS" yells.

And you get two of them for the first unlock as well!
