on ONS-Torlan, how do you stop manta whores whoring out at your base?
Try another server...seriously, some servers have no spawn-killing rules, etc.
Generally though, the best way is just to be alert.
You may not have the avril when spawning (you won't in Torlan), but with practise, shock-combos & flack can be devastating to Mantas.
Also, Mantas cannot turn fast, so as long as you keep an eye on your surroundings, even with a Manta coming at you full speed, you usually can strafe jump to the side, & they will nearly always miss.
Depending on the terrain, ducking (crouch) can also work well.
Even if you don't have good enough aim to hit the Mantas without the avril, i often can simply keeping strafe-jumping to avoid them till they get frustrated & leave, or till they make a stupid mistake, like jumping out to fight me...then you can steal their Manta...hehe
