Add a secundary weapon.

Welcome everyone,

In this topic, I want to dicuss the posibility to have a secundary weapon.

Firstly, it is not the first time for me that my primary weapon is overheat and all my star cards still in cooldown, so personaly the idea of adding a pistol or secundary can give to you more opportunities of survive in combat.

Sincerely, Franer.

    They all already have secondary weapons. Like what even?

    You have to pay attention to your heat indicator. Its faster to manually vent than to over heat. If you know you have too much heat and will over heat if you engage, pull back from the fight. Use cover. Also most classes have secondary weapons.
  • Another option is using a gun with better cooling for your play style.

    I pay attention to my heat indicator, but in some cases, I need to overheat my weapon in combat, but I am always paying attetion on it.

    Thank you anyway.

    I mean, that you have a pistol for example and could change to that weapon with the scroll of your mouse; it is different to the star cards.

    Nah the game is fine the way it is. We don't need extra loadout weapons.
  • I agree, they should add the ability to pull out a sidearm (I mean other than vanguard, infiltration, flash pistol for example) like an SE-14R or something. Other shooters let you make the transition by pressing triangle on PS, Y on Xbox, and that button doesn't do much of anything in this game except for claiming rewards in career. I don't know why this doesn't exist.
    Ayy
  • Would definitely like a pistol for specialist to finish off targets. The stinger is useless.

    Oddly enough, it was the Stinger, of all things, which got nerfed. Don't recall seeing any complaints against it.

    I had complain about the stinger, it is so difficult to kill someone with that weapon, it is very useless againts troopers...

    Also, this topic is for all classes to have a secundary, like other shooters.

    +1 Me too.

    Please balance the OFFICER / BLURRG. They are NOT a HEAVY, SNIPER, nor an ASSAULT CLASS. So far, every "nerf" has failed to change anything. The Blurrg is OP vs other class guns (and not just at close range). #actuallybalancethenoobtubecrutch :*

    As much as I want a pistol (like the scout pistol) while playing the specialist, I suspect that would create a game imbalance. I’d play a specialist 50% of the time if I had a pistol to alleviate my weakness at close range.
  • No secondary weapon !!!

    The different card choices and the basic weapon are more than enough !!! Stop coming whining. It's because of people like you that we will have an unbalanced game like Battlefront [2015].

    + I also hope that we will not see the bacta bomb in the game. I prefer to see the medical droid for the officer as the 4th card (replaces the turret / shield / disruption) and to halve the health received by battle command.

    The stinger pistol is not a weapon to kill.
    It is a weapon to finish enemies with low health or prevent regeneration ! In epic it lasts 10s! 10s is very long.

    The specialist just needs a fit.
    Either 125PV or a rate slightly; very slightly improved for the EE-4. ( Either one or the other but not both )

    The weakness of the specialist comes primarily from other classes that are too strong!
    Decrease the power of the CR-2 ; the long-range damage with the officer's pistol (blurrg-1120).
    Etc......... etc......
