The ‘Brute’ is probably my favorite class in the whole ‘Tribes: Ascend’ world, its full of powerful weapons, powerful gadgets, strong armor, a very high health pool and is probably one of the best tools if you want to bash someone else’s reactor.
My style is very simple and straight forward, get into the enemy base and waste the crap of that place (destroy the reactor and structures). That is what I do with the Brute, IT OWNS!!!!! When you fight in close quarters, the ‘Heavy Spinfusor’ does a lot of damage and the shotgun doesn’t forgive anyone when a noobtard tries to rush you in the face.
Outside, the best thing you can do is turn into a structure killing machine, I know that it sounds kinda crazy to destroy those things but that is pretty much your only choice because the Brute have one horrible flaw!!! The Brute doesn’t budge!!! When you hit the jetpack you will climb at a very slow pace and you ski speed is not the best around… Oh man!!! IT doesn’t fly!!!! FLY!!!!!!! Oh well, it’s too darn heavy…
If everything else fails… Then pull the Fractal grenade, that small gadget is rocks the house so badly, sometimes I turn into a griefing machine by throwing my 2 grenades then collect small corpse canisters and then throw more grenades, near the flag, the reactor, near the control point or in a random hallway… Warning!!! You are going to score a lot of ‘Aftermatch’ kills and people is going to be very mad at you!!!
The only thing that the Brute needs is some sort of self-destruct. When you get killed, your whole body explodes and your body parts fly through someone else and kill him.
