Basically using the double shot to instantly kill anything.

My vote went to the Wall/Ceiling Tail strikes. Why because it cannot be blocked and is almost impossible to counter.

E spam would be a close second followed by plasma spam. At least with plasma if the opponent moves a little there is a good chance the plasma ball will miss.

Is "none" an appropriate answer?

e spam, just because it's possible to get stealth killed from enemies that are in front of you from lag.

Second would be plasma spam.

There is also a glitch with the shotgun that allows you to fire much faster. Shoot, then block, then shoot again and you can fire almost instantly.

In my opinion, tail spam is the worst.  I can be such a bad plasmacaster spam sometimes, but I think tail spam is worse cause it stuns you and leaves you open for a killing strike.

That's patched on pc. It only does a little more damage than a claw attack and doesn't stun.

Lucky PC players.

It's still a 1 hit kill if you get hit in the head as a marine though.  :-\

A little more than a claw attack? No way!
It's just a heavy attack without stun.

Still enough to kill in two hits. I always got the impression that the attacks do something like this to a marine:

claw: -40%
wall tail: -60%
tail: -80%

I think I had to tail whip a few marines 3 times before, but they could have healed inbetween.
I could have sworn it takes more tail spam than true tail whips to kill a predator though.
