    Who scores the kill if...
    1. ...someone brings a sentry to the mission and someone else assembles it?
    2. ...someone brings a sentry to the mission, assembles it and then someone dismantles and assembles it again?
    3. ...someone brings a sentry to the mission, starts assembling it, but someone else finishes it?
    4. ...the sentry was brought by someone and assembled by someone else, and then rotated by another person?

    1. If an alien dies because of the explosion of a barrel you shot, does it count as a kill?
    2. If you shoot a barrel with weapon, and an alien dies, does that count as weapon kill?
      (i.e. for achievements)

    1. If someone sets an alien on fire, and then someone else attacks it with flamethrower again (on Easy difficulty, for example), whom does the kill count to?

  • @badp I agree with the edit you made, but I don't think the "new" template is required if you changed it like that. – BlaXpirit Nov 7 '10 at 22:12
  • @BlaX I agree my template isn't very useful, but I didn't feel like merely removing yours without attempting to replace it with something else :) – badp Nov 7 '10 at 22:13

    This question made a lot more sense before badp edited out the expected answer format. I was looking at the question for a few minutes thinking "why on Earth did he bold the first letter of every verb?" Although I agree with the edit, more has to be done. – Invader Skoodge Nov 7 '10 at 22:14
  • Oh, yes, really... But there's still "The letters in bold may be used in the answer..." – BlaXpirit Nov 7 '10 at 22:15

  • Sentry kills do count as kills towards objectives, at the very least. Luckily: community mods are ludicrous enough as they are... – badp Nov 8 '10 at 15:56
  • When talking about objectives, any alien death is counted, including their "friendly fire" (e.g. mortar bug's bombs) – BlaXpirit Apr 26 '11 at 13:08
