Are Assault Marines (Jump) even worth playing? Every time I play as one I get nothing done with them. I understand they have a limited lifespan due to being a shock troop. So I know they need to do as much damage in the shortest time possiable, powersword with extra damage is what I have. Nope, I get kicked and am forced to duel (I try to flee but keep getting locked into combat) or I get wrecked by that blassed poison chainsword.
