    Anyone had a chance to try? Thoughts?

    Hallelujah! Stalker is going to become viable again! Maybe I won't switch to engineer after all. If they can do a pass on the volume, CQC Hunter would really be good too.

    If crouch walking is practically invisible I'm going to go full predator with the knives again! :rolleyes:

    I'm glad you guys are finally getting some attention. Cloaking is really underpowered currently, and reducing visibility is a good change. I'd prefer an increase in upsides than reduction in downsides.

    As long as the darklight bug fix remains scheduled for next patch I will be a happy lady. This is just unexpectedly awesome.

    Ey, I can play Infiltrator again! But I also am curious regarding the darklight bug... how is it a bug?

    finely, so they still care about the infils
    hell will freeze over tonight


    now only the loud sound and the easy to see flash
    and maybe less visibility when moving in shadows and nights

    This has been broken since April, and has made indoor stalker work nearly an impossible guessing game as to who has a dark-light equipped. After running some testing I discovered the issue was any light pulled out / weapon equiped beyond 5 meters from the infil caused their clients not to render the flashlight beam. You'd basically have no idea when you were painted until checking the deathscreen enemy loadout.

    This will increase ghost caps.. which is annoying, but then again infils are extremely easy to see atm and needed a little help

    Forget my thread about buffing the FA Scout Rifles, it doesn't really matter if this is gonna be on live.

    If they don't want to remove or lower the sound of cloaking they can atleast make it non-faction specific so that people can't know if it was enemy or ally infiltraitor that cloaked.

    I get it. It's like the old fights in the Crown, when stuff also didn't render. But it also randomly occured to me; what if turning off your darklight has the same potential as turning off your laser sight? As in, you'll still be able to see people, but the light is disabled. That would still be broken, but it never occured to me that that could be the case.

    Sounds like the Darklight is pretending to be the laser sight. Currently when the laser sight is equipped you can press "X" by default to turn it off but the effects stay the same. The laser sight also will be seen first time by a enemy who wasn't around when you turned it off not sure the range.

    Maybe the Darklight is taking from that and the effect stays on even when the light is disabled. Either that or the client didn't think the light was a priority to load and shoved it on the back burner. While the light was on the entire time for the guy who shot you due to his client saying it's a priority.

    But.... hasn't it always been like that? When the hell did they change it back?
