Hotel can be one of my most fun or most hated maps, depending on the team that I have and how the other team plays.
Immediately as the match starts I begin to head towards the Digger Launcher, I want to make sure I get the power weapon first or prevent them from getting it; saves a lot of headache. I am met with opposition, as expected and fire a few shots form my Lancer. Seeing that it is two people against me, I take out my smoke and I hurl it forward. I grab the Digger Launcher (Big Risk that could have ended not in my favor) and I see a guy coming at me. Shooting the first time must have injured him, the second one putting the nail in the coffin. His friend was not so lucky either, as a blind fire high-angled Digger shot killed the second guy.
Grabbing the incendiary grenades, I throw some at a guy that comes in (0:52) and cannot believe that I managed to kill him. Upon further investigation he was getting shot and must have gotten caught up in the fire in his confusion. (0:58) Next thing I know, I’m staring down two people not long afterwards. Killing one with the Incendiary (HELL FIRE! As RaS calls it), I run up and mantle kick the other guy and point-blank Gnasher him to rank in my 5th kill and get the “Killing Spree” Ribbon. Also, (1:15) some guy was coming in right as I was exiting out the door by the grenade spawn; wall bouncing to the corner so that way I got out of his field of vision I proceed to hand him some Gnasher justice.
Once I did that I headed towards the Digger Launcher in order to refill it, things spawn again after you have shot them all in about 30 seconds. Seeing three of them respawning, I took aim but did not shoot because of the spawn shield and not wanting to waste shots. It took me all three shots to kill two of them, but they were quick and easy work. After finishing those two off, I figure I’d go and get the drop on them when they respawn by waiting, but as soon as I switched to the Gnasher and got in a good stride I was already getting fired on and began to run towards the pistol spawn. I thought it was Boltok but it was Gorgon pistol, and I had no choice but to rely on my pistol since I lacked an automatic since I dropped my Lancer for the Digger. I put a lot of shots into the guy but eventually got greedy because I wanted something cool for the recording again; one single Gnasher shot would have been enough to down him and continue my killing spree, but instead I got Sawed-Off thanks to a missed mantle kick.
(2:19) Respawning I ran up to the Incendiary grenades and focused my look towards the Digger Launcher since I seen the COG team had just picked it up. Must not have been paying attention I had gotten the grenades because I was able to burn him with two tosses.
Searching around for the last person, I was not about to approach them as I noticed they had the Sawed-Off Shotgun. Shooting them repeatedly, I was trying to figure out why they had not gone done by the time they went around the corner. Finishing them off with the Lancer, I ran over to them and began the Arm-Rip Locust Execution (3:15) and my team mates joined in on the fun, and that was the end of Round 1. 10 Kills, 1 Down, 1 Death.
Starting off Round 2, I grab grenades and immediately look over the Boom Shot spawn towards their side. The reason I do this is that I want to kill anyone that may be able to pick up the Boom Shot or down one of my team mates as they go to grab the Boom.
Coming inside, I see my team mates are busy fighting up top for the Torque Bow (4:08). I lob a few grenades up there and kill one person, I tried to lob to the right cause I figured they would be running that way but it seems not. I took out my Gnasher and began to run to the left, figure that I would cut them off and down them if they were damaged at all from my other grenade. The person had a Sawed-Off and shot from entirely too far and flat out missed me; going to get the kill as I down them I am getting shot in the back by Molly (who becomes my friend later). I pick up the meat shield but she is killed as soon as I turn around by the Boom Shot; I drop the shield and move on. Not long after that I am confronted while I have my Lancer out and is struggling to get cover and yet again my ass is saved by eAngel of Death wielding the Boom Shot.
I was going for grenades but attention got diverted by a fire fight down on the other side. My attention shifts back towards grenades because I see the indicated that a COG has just picked them up and I began to Lancer at him while he is behind cover. (4:50) I realize it is not a good mood to stay behind cover because a grenades kill radius is massive. If he threw one behind me and one in front of me I’d be hard pressed to get out by rolling side ways, so I rush him…and kill him.
Two people are AFC (Away From the Controller), and I happen to down one as the other runs away and I pistol him until he runs. Now, here something interesting goes on. You will see me firing at someone and probably close to go down, but immediately switch fire to a new target around (5:37). This is because eAngel of Death told me that someone has Boom Shot and I know it is him, I need to injure him or down him, luckily the dude was a bad shot with the Boom Shot and I managed to assist in killing him. Grabbing the Boom Shot he left, I reloaded it and went up stairs and stopped because I thought I heard a grenade going off, but it was one of ours. Not long after that I use the Boom to flush out someone and use it again to kill them.
Trying to be cool and get some of the final kills, I ended up dying twice. I should have finished out without those two unnecessary deaths but oh well, you live and you learn!
