I'm the newb, btw. Don't get me wrong, I played a bit during beta and in the last couple of days, most of that time I was playing infiltrator, trying to make myself useful while trying to survive... And then I've switched to LA/HA and boy or boy, did that made my infiltrator feel megauseless. Yeah, there's so many things that wrong with infiltrator, I can tell it right away, even though I'm a newb at this. Yeah sure, good players can make infiltrators work, but when you need a beast-like player to make a certain class barely effective, is when you definitely know something is wrong...Did I mentioned that everything was wrong with the infiltrator? Anyway, here's my small list of things wrong with infiltrator, although knowing SOE and Smedly, I doubt anything is going to get done, but still: 1)WHITE JUMPSUITS?! Really? You give infiltrator, the guy who's supposed to blend with surroundings, a white jumpsuit?! Why not dark grey or pale green, or even black or anything that stands out less?! 2)Stealth is practically useless. Sure it has some uses, but when you're playing with low graphical settings, you are so painfully obvious...Actually, same goes for high settings and it doesn't really matters weather you're 50 or 100 meters away, you're still painfully noticeable, which makes stealth fairly useless against trained eye. 3)Mobility-infiltrator has NONE. No tricks, no gadgets no nothing that would allow him to go where others shouldn't be or to avoid unwanted attention by hiding somewhere under the ceiling. Why can't infiltrators choose to have LA jetpacks instead of stealth cloaks?! 4)Hacking-is also practically useless. Suppose you manage to sneak by all the base defenders and hack vehicle terminal, suppose you manage to pull out Sunderer with spawnpoint, just how long does it going to take to any sane person to notice that vehicle terminal is hacked, put 1+1 together and to figure out that there's an infiltrator with a Sunderer hiding somewhere? And then he just grabs few HAs and blows the thing to pieces along with infiltrator. Not to mention the fact that hacking is pretty much useless, it also does not contributes anything to a fight or to a bigger picture. Medics can sorta revive, engineers can fix stuff, HA can own anything and their mama, while LAs are highly mobile and are better at sniping that infiltrator+they own everyone and their mama at CQC...Infiltrator can pew-pew with sniper rifle, but he can't contribute anything and he's useless at CQC AND his hacking is useless as well. Why not improve on it?! Make it so if hack the terminal and you keep hacking/channeling said terminal, you can do some nasty stuff to enemy side in that sector? Like, make stuff cost more resources, or delay a respawn by a second or so, or make players respawn with random class/loadouts, or even make an artificial queue for vehicle spawns or something? Or just bring back all the PS1 stuff! 6)Speaking of vehicles...I'm not sure about medics, but I'm fairly certain that all other classes are supposed one or another way of taking down land/air vehicles, so how come infiltrator has none?! How come infiltrator can't place a satchel charge on some tank or paint it for artillery strike or something? Or even throw a pile of poo at the front view camera to temporally blind the driver?! How come the sneaky guy is the one guy who can't do a thing vs vehicles? 7)Shift delay for steadying the aim sway is annoying. It shouldn't even be there. 8)Bolt-action re-scoping in order to reload? Are you kidding me? I have to let go the zoom-in in order to reload? Why can't my infiltrator do it automatically? And it's even worse with toggle zoom-in option. I have to hit RMB in order to zoom, take a shot, hit RMB again in order to reload, hit RMB yet again in order to come back into zoom-in mode? That's annoying and has no purpose, other than to annoy the snip...er, I mean infiltertor. 9)And why the heck I can't do anything while stealthed?! I can't use melee, I can't fire any gun, and unless I'm using sniper scope(x6 and higher), I can't see the markings on regular scopes and I can't even see iron sights, WTH?! 10)Why is that infiltrator has a default melee? Where is that one-hit kill, shown in the cinematic? Or any backstab mechanic? It would probably enable infiltrators to, you know, infiltrate... 11)Secondary weapons, infiltrator needs a choice out of those. TR and NC pistols may be ok, but VS one sucks plain and simple, and even TR/NC infiltrator can use some fully automatic pistol/smg or even a shotgun pistol. 12)Sniper rifles with IRON SIGHTS?! Seriously?! Why do those even exist?! Bolt-action, iron sight sniper rifle?! Who's grand idea was that anyway?! It would be ok if those were mid-range, semi-auto, high power+small ammo mag+long reload guns, but those are bolt-fraggin-action, long/medium range sniper rifles with iron sights and maximum scope of x4! They are pretty much useless, the only way to use them is to stealth, hit someone with melee+bolt-action up close, but even than the default sniper rifles are so much better!. So either scope those "sniper" rifles or place them into scout rifles category...Personally, I'd rather SOE just remove those at all. 13) Scout rifles...So we have one semi-automatic rifle, basically the same as TR/VS starting rifle, minus the sniper scope and we have a wannabe SMG, lower damage per shot than any standard primary gun, with lower accuracy and lower mag size. Who's bright idea was that, anyway? To give nerfed SMG to infiltrator, in a game where about 70-80% of combat is CQC(and then to nerf it even further for VS side)? Why can't infiltrator have the same "smg" as LA's one? It seems to be even better at sniping than most of semi-auto sniper rifles, anyway. 14)Claymore is remotely useful, hologram is completely useless and I don't even know what the hell for EMP grenades are! Could infiltrator get something useful instead? Oh, I dunno, like something against land/air vehicles, or remote detonation bomb? Or maybe even some RC anti-personal/vehicle scout/attack drone? so many more stuff that is wrong with infiltrator! For now I'm simply out of steam. I guess I should play another hour or so as infiltrator and come back here with even more rant.
