TOPIC: [TTT] How To Be A Good Traitor

[TTT] How To Be A Good Traitor 9 years 10 months ago #64076

Hey guys!

I just saw a thread made by IllusioN talking about how to be a good Detective (which can be viewed here), and I decided to expand a little bit and talk about how to be a good Traitor.

The traitor's job is indirectly killing innocents and detectives. There are an unlimited amount of ways to accomplish this, but which are the best ones? How can you easily escape the sights of the enemies?
The First Steps
A tip I can give you for maps that requires a specific item to activate the traitor tester (for example ttt_minecraft) is too hide it in a place where there's either a traitor trap that prevents people from accessing it (the lava lake) or hiding it before the round begins. If you become a Traitor, this gives you an advantage.

On maps that doesn't have anything like that, it's smart to hide near the door that gives access to the traitor room and hide. If you become a traitor and nobody else is nearby, you can easily enter it. If you're an innocent, you can easily hide and check if any traitors try getting in (and then KOS them).

Traitor Menu
Something IllusioN did not talk about was the Detective Menu, which is similar to the Traitor Menu. As a T, when you open the Traitor Menu by pressing C (or any other binded key), a menu pop's up that tells you what you can buy and what the item does. Most of the weapons are situational, but I'll cover a few that I personally find very useful in most situations.

The first 2 tabs shows you Body Armor, a Radar and a Disguiser. All of these are very useful in most cases, especially the radar. Body Armor gives you armor which means it'll be harder to take you down. This is very useful if you know you won't be able to avoid a direct confrontation when trying to kill Innocents and have to shoot.

The Radar is a tool that gives you the location of every person on the map every 30 seconds. This can show you where lone players are, and give the possibility to take them out, or where the biggest group of players are and use a trap to kill them.

And finally, there's the disguiser. This tool is incredibly useful. Once you activate it, your name is hidden. This is very useful when sniping Innocents, or when you have to hide in a dark area. The best weapon to pair this up with is the Silenced Sniper (which the server doesn't have anymore). This weapon pairs up well with a teleporter.

Traitor Weapons
In the T menu you can find a lot of good but situational weaponry. I'll cover a few here that I think are the most effective in most situations.

The C4 is a timed explosive that can easily take out everyone in an area. A common spot to put this is in corners, on the ceilings or in vents. They can be used to clear an area and set up a trap or to wipe out an entire group of roaming/stationary players. The minimum time the C4 needs to blow up is 45 seconds, and the maximum is 10 minutes. The longer the timer is set for, the less sound it makes.

The Knife is also a great weapon to use, especially when you have a buddy sniping people. It's biggest drawback is that it's a 2-hit kill on the Zarp server, which means it doesn't get used often, since you might aswell shoot the person in the back of the head. However, if a fellow T shoots him with a sniper beforehand, the Innocent will only have 50 hp left, enough to 1-hit kill them using the knife. The knife can be incredibly deadly and silent, but the moment a Detective finds your body, you're up for a big cat and mouse moment.

Flare Guns are very useful for disposing bodies of people you've knifed. It has 4 shots and 1 shot on a corpse burns it, which makes it impossible for people to identify it. The Flare Gun is best used on maps where you can't hide bodies well or when you're too far away from a good hiding spot. Good hiding spots are Traitor Rooms, in water, or dark corners.

Another great tool is the Teleporter. This allows you to set a location and teleport to it when you need to. This is very useful with a Disguiser, since you can teleport after people see where the shots are taken from and you can try and prove your innocence this way. Just make sure you put it in a spot where not a lot of people walk past, since people sometimes camp Teleporter Spots.

The Radio and Decoy are 2 incredibly useful, but underused weapons. The Radio lets you make certain sounds in the area the radio was placed, like gunfire, a scream or C4. This can be used to either attract people to the radio, or try and keep them as far away as possible, possibly leading them into some real C4. The Decoy fakes your position on radar's and the DNA scanner, which can buy you some extra time if the Detective has your DNA or is looking for people on the radar. If a Detective is looking for people that aren't near the tester using his radar, you can quickly plant a Decoy and then silently make your way out.

The final weapon I'll cover are the Tripwire Mines. These are incredibly useful in area's where people have to go to before being able to see the wires. Good places would be elevators and places that people teleport to. Watch out though, Detectives or Innocent with Defusers can defuse them, making them useless.

Proving Innocence
A common question people ask me are how to proof you are Innocent as a Traitor. I have a few ways you can do this.

The first way is to be alone with 2 people. You can shoot one down and scream in the mic "CHECK THE BODY!". If the person you're with checks the body, you have enough time to pop him in the head and hide his corpse.

Another way to accomplish this is by pretending you've got DNA on someone. Obviously, the Detective must be dead and the DNA Scanner must be in your possession. You can tell people you've got DNA and lead them to an innocent and tell them there's his DNA on the body.

Another great way is pretending you're getting shot by another player. If you're alone with a person but know a few people are on their way there, you can say that the Innocent was shooting you first.

The final tip I'll give you is faking your death. If you're on your own, you can pretend you're about to die by telling people through your microphone that you're getting shot by-. Example: "Help, this guy is shooting me! His na-". This can be perfectly done with the help of a radio, a disguiser and a teleporter.



That's it for now. I'll probably end up editing this later, since I still have a lot to talk about, but for now I hope this has given you enough tips to play Traitor properly, instead of attempting to gun everybody down and losing your life withing 5 seconds of the game.

Thanks for the replies! I'll probably end up editing this later to add in a lot, and I mean A LOT more. I'm also thinking about making a weapons guide, an innocent guide and several map guides (and maybe a HUB thread that links all of them... lol).
