Yep the plunger is the other amazing one. I would tier them as such:

Tier 1 - really useful

Boxing Glove
Plunger
Spikes

Tier 2 - mostly useful

Freeze
Grappling Hook
Magnetizer
Power Hitting

Tier 3 - useless

Boot
Forced Boost
Swapper
Tornado


I would swap the Magnetizer for the Swapper. I am useless with the Magnetizer but I have used the swapper many times to disrupt enemies who are going for a shot on goal.

Magnetizer is deadly, but it does take some time to get used to. It's low range is what put it into tier 2 for me. I used to think it was useless until I got better with it.

Swapper would be infinitely more useful and probably Tier 1 if it was instant. But 90% of the time you trigger it on a guy going for a shot/save and in the two seconds it takes to actually swap, he's already made it.

Though one time I did score an awesome goal with it -- swapped with a guy in the net as I was jumping at the ball, so his car ended up hitting the ball and I (obviously) just let it go in. Other than that though, I struggle to think of times it's had a real direct affect on play. A couple times moving guys out of the net and such, but that's about it.

Is anyone available for a item trade? Can't get a certified item.

Are you going for the trophy? I think I have some of the easier ones (shots or goals or saves) -- I'd have to double check. I got my trophy on one for shots and haven't put a certified item on since, but I've probably got somewhere from 8-10.

I have most of the DLC and I'd say the Supersonic Fury pack, Batmobile and Back to the future cars are worth it if you want to throw some extra bucks at the game. The other DLC cars feel kinda clunky to me. Note that you can't add any of your custom swag to the Batmobile or Back to the Future cars. The Masamune car is as close to a Tron type vehicle we have but I hear it has some pretty bad stats if you care about hit boxes, turn radius, etc.

Same here. Add me and you can have my tracking items that match your play style. I think I have at least ones for assists and saves.

I boosted for the trophy with the 'clear' tracking using 1v3 against bots. It went pretty quick. It would be convenient if trading you my veteran item just popped the trophy :)

Ok, I'll add you. If you could trade a saves one, it would be nice.

Thanks.

I swear to god, that if they make one more trophy like Rocket Genocider, I'm going to find Jeremy Dunham and complain about it.
