Was he using those perks with RapidReload Smoke Bomb? Never used that combination before so wouldn't know.

RR Smoke + Boost Cooldowns + Overall Cooldowns = ???

(No really, I don't know. But it seems likely to work)

Yup I use this set-up all the time....the only 25 second cooldown I know of (using above) is RR Fire Crackers? Not sure but RR smoke is 40 and in manhunt you can have it back in like two seconds. Once you have died 3 times I think, everytime you die there after and spawn you get your abilities back, no matter what the cooldown time was before you died.

That means you have the Reset Cooldowns Loss Streak, not Boost Cooldowns...

Boost Cooldowns gives you 1/3 normal cooldown times while you're on your loss streak. So that's probably what he's using.

Well paper, you said you only killed him once, but reset cooldowns is available after 3 deaths without you killing or contract losses, and boost cooldowns is after 5.
Doubt it its that then. Thing with smoke is that the cooldown begins right after you drop it (from 39s), its not like firecrackers that it would keep on blipping showing the duration for how long the effect of the ability lasts.

Usually when I use offensive smoke bomb, my cooldown is at about 30s after the kill without waiting for a focus or anything, and if I go for a focus, maybe an extra -5s, because the kill animation goes on for about 5-6 seconds.

We tested the loss streak and it takes so many seconds for the contract to come up and he would have to kill 5 NPC's for the loss sreak to kick in.

Killing NPCs doesnt give you a contract loss in assassinate. If you've locked on a player, and that player gets killed by another player, thats a contract loss. Or you die 3/5 times in a row without killing to get your loss streak ability.

Your pals never told you the answer? Really?

Personally I dislike the answer and don't like to run that.

Why were you playing "team up" assassinate? (I thought that it was a one player mode... this is really common now, aye?)

(Hopefully Multiplayer designers for Revelations are paying attention to this thread to fix a multiplayer flaw or two)

Yeah I hear you CITIZEN WAR!!! Honestly u can't do too much on free for all. Ppl can team up if they want. I do it in GTA 3!! none the less this mode is cheap I played it 2 time and I got rapped!! I'll stick to kicking butt in manhunt. COME GET SOME PAPER!! I sorta miss u. I've known u for awhile but I just didn't care for the abbrasive attitude.

While we're talking about cooldowns, the weirdest thing happened to me while I was playing earlier. This guy (not mentioning names) smoked me and then poisoned me. I didn't think much about it until I respawned maybe 10 seconds later, with him right in front of me. I tried to kill him, but he drops smoke and focus poison me! My jaw dropped five meters. Can anyone explain that?

Can anyone explain that? He could have killed you then locked onto someone else, but his new target got killed and he got his reset cooldowns?

Or boost cooldowns maybe..

Reset Cooldowns requires 3 contract loses. So, no.

You know you can kill the wrong person if you have a target and lose lock? Anyone tried giving NPCs Lures to see if that counts as a contract loss?

I think you're exaggerating a tad bit.

The 1 v 1 match Paper is talking about was in Manhunt mode...before the 1 v 1 challenge, we were having a bit of fun with The Footpad in an Assassinate game. We were Beiber hunting camping on a roof top with deadly gun...

No.

Because making a kill resets your lost contract count.
