It's been a while since I last played the Skimmer class. And back then, Skimmer wasn't that area-denial tank that we now use, as the Rocketeer almost took its high-speed bullet tactic December last year.
Well, around a few days ago, I tried playing as Skimmer in a 4 Teams server. Unfortunately, I could not even land a single hit with the main bullet against the enemies before I found myself dead. The bullet was too slow before it could even reach the enemies, and what's worse, most of my enemies have speedy bullets. Predator, Assassin (as I last saw it after it killed me) and, as such, Rocketeer. Simply speaking, I can't hit them, but they can hit me.
It appears that either I might be wrong at around my build, I made a mistake at strategy, I wasn't lucky at that time, or simply I'm a noob with the new Skimmer. Can anyone give some tips or suggestions while playing as it?
