Anyone tried to use the upper level to take cover easily? I never tried that as I never needed to.
If not, maybe go look for other good cover spots before you unleash hell.
I found taking cover quickly is the best live saver there is now. If your shield goes poof hide, recharge (shoueldnt take longer then 3 secs) and do a spike attack yourself.
Debuff/stun them on sight before you even fire a shot yourself.
