Could you list the different car chassis from the best to the weakest.
based on scouting (not race)
Thanx

Of course if you wanna explain why, you welcome!

Different advice could help

(why this question? Simply apaches are good but you rarely find some in encounter, so what is the best chassis to keep)

Depends how you scout.

This is s tough question....of the more common chassis I would say the windy 2 and Merc are decent reasonably sized cars. They are not up there with landys, Apaches, buzzers and bpus but you find them, they are reasonably strong and can pack decent guns.

If you muscle scout it's just preference between the sunrise and the phoenix. Again not up there with buccys, stormers, ospreys, morays etc but decent cars.

Don't be fooled by a chompers. It can be fun but it's a death trap.

What he said, hahaha

goat hit on most of the good points.

My personal favorite car for scouting has always been the phoenix...durable, reliable, can hold a 3.2V8, 2 guns, and 2 crew with a reload or two..

I use Phoenix's almost exclusively as my muscle cars. Twin MMGs is good, but the HMG/MG combination means that if you swap gunners during the battle, you can train both Large Guns and Gunnery skill in the same scout.

Before I had bigger cars, the mercenare was a good car. Beware the Freelancer loadout though: the recoil from 2 HMGs really slows you down.

My old gang, the Load Runners, lost a single person in 4L Phoenixes in the entire time I played with them, and that was due to my carelessness.

Sonics. I hate Sonics. I underestimate them as enemies every time.

Which means that I always kill the drivers. Never drive a Sonic :-)

worst chassis? the carrier van. paper armour and horrible handling. plus rather slow.

I run a combat carrier.

Very rarely. Not sure I would recommend it.
