Idea for the Specialist Class

So, after having a record number of deaths for me in a match on Kashyyk going for the launchers.

We had a match on Kashyyk yesterday in which nearly half the team (give or take) spawned in as specialists. Provided zero cover as each member of the team (very few) that went for a launcher was either taken out during launch or while on the move.

So I had a thought. Since the specialist has the ability to not show up on radar when firing. What if the specialist were the only class that didn't have a giant "Attack" marker on them when carrying the launchers?

Do you think this would get specialist players to focus more on the objective than the kill? Would it be beneficial to the gameplay? Add strategy? Make better use of the specialist class' infiltration maybe?

  • Neat idea. I kinda like it, but I doubt it would make many Specialists go for Ion Disruptors/Missile Launchers. With their health, even without a marker over their head, it seems pretty likely they'd get shot and killed before they could fire it anyways. Again, I like the idea, I just don't think it'd work

    The benefit there, might make those not playing specialist more likely to defend the person who doesn't have a giant target on the map, which is also a problem. Bonus is, no one would know who has the launcher. Just groups moving. And as long as no one fires, they are off radar completely. I think it would make for a nice tactic, but like you said, given how many do play, it probably wouldn't work.

    My experience with the launcher has been "ok bud, hope you make it, we'll wait here if you do and shoot the target. It was nice knowing you."

    I still go for the objective as a specialist.


    But that made me think, wouldn’t it be nice if Specialist did have that big red thing over their head showing where they are?

    LOL, yeah, the lens glint is an issue...but without it, there won't be many specialists that move.

    You sir, are a rarity. I can't tell you how many matches I've played on PS4 in which the specialist players just shoot guys that aren't near or around the objective ir provide cover fire.

    I applaud you

    I’m taking about the red thing showing your class that shows up right when you go near someone.
