Plasma Pistol in Multiplayer

In multiplayer, experiment with having one player constantly run around with two charged PPs. Enemies can be tracked independently and disciplined teammates close by can efficiently kill shield-dropped enemies as the PP guy takes cover to move or recharge. This takes a team with excellent communication and clumpiness[staying together]. Try pairing the PP with grenades, the magnum, the BR and carbine (obviously), and the shotgun. The PP/Magnum combo is particularly underused. Though it's no secret to anyone, I think players are suspicious of their ability to get a headshot after a bolt. I say try it: the magnum's rapid firing will probably take care of that. Even getting a PP bolt on someone can often mean a teammate will get a subsequent kill even if you can't.
