Now that there will be a personal shield and a Jumppack...

We see on the art with Yavin IV a Stormtrooper with a jumppack, so that is confirmed I think. I would like that to be an elite class and not a gadget anymore and I think many will agree.

The preorder bonus is a personal shield ability for the heavy trooper. So here I hope they balance that better than in BF EA 1. Also I would like to change the way it looks. For a Droideka the blue bubble is okay, but it looks weird seeing 5 Stormtroopers within blue bubbles running around on Hoth... So You remember the Bacta-glowing (as long as you are overhealed, you will see a blue glowing on your armor) That would look much better when activate a personal shield.

    Limiting them to Droidekas would give the Droidekas their own unique identity, which i think they deserve. Giving this to the other factions would make the Droidekas lose what makes them special, and so they may as well not be in the game IMO (they have always been portrayed as being something special and unique, and I would like to keep it that way)

    How about the trailer? In the trailer we see a Snowtrooper with a jump-pack getting run over by a taun-taun.

  • I think jump packs will be limited to the assault class. (Or at least should be).

  • Jump packs should be for elite classes only. Not for everyone.

    I hope they don't have the Bacta Bomb. The Jump Pack, Personal Shield, and Bacta Bomb combo does NOT need to return in BF2.

    I second this.

  • Bacta Bomb = No Sale
  • I think they should keep the bacta bomb. Though, they should change it.

    Currently, the bacta bomb heals you instantly to 100 and slowly climbs to 130. Instead of doing that, it should ONLY heal you to 100 and have a much smaller area of effect.

    I'd prefer they drop the bacta bomb, but keep the med droid similar to how it is now.

  • I just hope jump pakcs will be limited to certain classes or a power up this time around and not available for everyplayer at anytime. It ruins the immersion a lot and get annoying if some players use them to camp at places they should not be able to reach.
  • The best class is No Class.

    I enjoy my Jump Pack, Grenades and shield layout and the power to change it at any time I please.

    Limitations are landfill material.

    As a matter of fact, in a description of one of the pre order options it says you can get the "personal shield epic ability" I feel like that doesn't limit it just to droidekas.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good forum post kid.
  • I have a bad feeling about this.

    It's confirmed that that the jump trooper is it's own class and will be limited on the battlefield..Maybe like 5 at one time
