Heya fellow engi players !
Engineer Always have been guted since release of the game. First they were designed to be heavy armor class but with no Reason go medium tier. They were designed with kits in mind and necessary to be competitive but devs gave them toolbelt.
First elite spec was a Failure and kits aren't really good anymore. But the problem is that we still need them coz we have too few skills. The devs are aware of the problem because they gave holosmith a F5 kit, so we could logically think that they know the fact that engineer need kits to be played… But yeah our kits are weak and we have better utility skills ( except turrets).
Recently they came with an "out of combat" weapon swap, maybe, if we are extremely positive, it's the start of a true weapon swap. Would it be so hard and unbalanced to give engineer weapon swap? It would at least give us more skills and make us less reliant on kits. Even if we have just rifle on core we have a bit more choice with the elite specs weapons.
Revenant have 20 weapons skills, elementalist 25, we have 15 (counting tool belt and no kit) if we had weapon swap we will just have 20... I still Don't understand why we still Don't have weapon swap since the start.
What do you guys think? Feel free to discuss about your opinions here. Maybe (we can Always hope) a dev is going to read this and consider it...
