- Average -- 10 / 20
Look at those stats! Crap Speed and pathetic avoidance mean that you've really got to use Molo's perfect armour rating to take out enemies. That's not to say that Molo's a bad choice, in fact in the right hands, he is almost unbeatable up close. However, that's where the problem starts - most players try and stay out the way when they see Molo coming, so it's a struggle even getting close to targets. For this reason, Molo usually has to play a waiting game and hit his enemies when they least expect it, or are somehow stuck (e.g. in a crater, proximity mine, or stalled). To do this efficiently, Molo really needs to build up speed, so try and position him at the top of a cliff or incline - the run down allows him to build up more speed than just trundling along the ground. // You might also have guessed by now that Molo is a killer when it comes to ramming - hell, he can even go up against Convoy with pretty good odds! Obviously, the faster you're going, the more damage will be inflicted, so use the 'down-the-hill' method or the afterburner combo to push that speedometer into the red. In addition, let off a few rockets to do extra damage, just make sure you don't knock your target out the way, or you'll go hurtling past barely scraping them.
Bad Day In L.A.
Molo won't say what he put into this old junkyard muffler, but he believes it's his best prank yet. It produces fumes so dense, they plug up most engines for good.
After thinking about this, I'm pretty sure that 'Bad Day In L.A.' is the most powerful weapon in the game, mainly because after playing for a while you can just about wipe an entire energy bar clean off an opponent in one go! It basically releases clouds of smoke which sap energy (at an alarming rate) and stall the opponent. Ideally, an opponent should be D.O.A. as soon as they get stalled by that first cloud, since it's just a case of covering them in more toxic fumes 'till they bite the dust. However, the main problem is getting to the opponent and hitting them with the first cloud, which is even more difficult when you consider that the smoke pours out the back of the bus! Here's the easiest way to do it... // First up, pretty much forget about trying to drive past the target and hit them as your tail passes them - this isn't really going to work. The best way to use the weapon is to pretend it's firing out the front and the only way to do this is to drive backwards. This takes a little bit of practice, but after a few goes becomes as easy as pie. There are two key things to remember, firstly, hold down the rearview button the whole time, since you want to see what way you're going! Secondly, because of this, the steering is reversed, which feels a little weird at first, but again, you'll pick it up quickly. Now all you really need to do is drive up to an opponent - arse first. Firing the weapon requires pretty good timing, so don't fire at cars that drive horizontally past it - wait for ones that are head on or have stalled. Now comes the fun bit, just hold down the fire button and watch their car get covered in smoke - check out their energy bar as well, it should be rocketing towards zero! Most vehicles usually can't recover once caught, so as long as you've got enough ammo, they'll probably be dead, or at least close to checking out. This move needs a lot of ammo, so make sure you've got a maximum load (99). // Finally, a couple more tactics. The smoke can also be uses as a more bog-standard smoke screen, especially if you need to lose an opponent or escape a pile-up. If you're being tailed, fire the weapon whilst jinking left and right, this usually buys you enough time to lose the tail, as they either try and avoid the cloud or even get stalled! Also if you see a bunch of cars involved in some close combat, get in there and poison them all, or circle round them trapping them with a toxic fence!
