Specialist is not viable in comparison. EA clearly does not play test.

So although I doubt EA will read this, I have found the lack of balance of a whole class disturbing. Here are the problems I see:
1. Having the least reliable gun
2. Infiltration is now a useless skills as the gun forced on you is terrible and is even less reliable in a fight than your sniper.
-The more you shoot the gun the more the ability drains (which is quickly)
-Upon the skill ending there is a long delay before you pull out your other gun
-A skill on a timer affected by shooting makes for many situations where the skill ends abruptly without you being able to gauge when-- so you get stuck in a lot of fights in which you already have a disadvantage.
3. The worst grenade in the game

I definitely do not expect perfection but it is clear to me that this was not play tested. As such a big-budget game, this is pretty ridiculous- not even considering the whole loot box system.

What happen yo? Like really?

  • NT-242.

    Also stop thinking about Infiltration as it was in the beta. It is clearly a defensive skill you use to reposition if you get jumped, not infantry farming skill you use all game.
  • No that's dumb dude lol. Binoculars are for that.

    The NT 242 doesn't make up for the fact the the class is **** and yeah Infiltration is supposed to be a defensive ability, but what good is it if it doesnt help in defensive situations? The damage is abysmal and the fire rate is slow as hell. Before you get a shot off, you'll get mowed down by an AR, Heavy Rifle, or a Pistol. The abilities for the class are garbage, weapons within the class are garbage, and the low **** health is the nail in coffin. I know because i played the damn class alot, almost to the point of unlocking the final long rifle and actually did descent with what I had, but the class overall is still pretty pathetic. My advice to anyone, If youre going to choose specialist, youre better off using any of the other classes. They have better sniper rifles and theyre not even sniper rifles lol. Specialist at this point is a waste of time, don't spend your parts to upgrade the class, until they buff it.

    You must really really suck because i have had so many triple kills with the gun because it 1 to 2 burst, not to mention that basically every single sniper will 1 to 2 hit with headshots or body shots, and on top of that i usually have been safe for a good few seconds before the ability turns off on me

    Firstly, explain to me where I said the NT 242 wasn't good? You must not be good at reading. Secondly, "every single sniper" is 1 to 2 shots? No, they aren't. The only other long rifle you might get away with a 2 headshot kill is the IQA-11. Key word "might". Otherwise its 3 shots. The A280 and default era snipers do not get 1-2 shot kills and thats facts.Thirdly, regardless if you're doing well or doing complete crap, the class is still underpowered and outclasses by every other class in the game. I did significantly well with the class, still doesn't change the facts of the matter that its underpowered and outclassed.
