I agree, theres not much you can do to improve the cutter, its not meant to be some god device. Besides, the enigeers are over powered enough as it is.

god device lol, the enginners have a well over ranged shotgun, can heal themselves and have lots of ammo with their health ammo extras. I think their good enough as they are, if their made to much more better they'll HAVE the power of god

True but all I am saying is to change the torch like a drill that does the same thing but look different. I just don't understand how you repair things by sparking them up. Should there be a engineer and a medic class or both put together?

Does it really matter about what it looks like? If you care about it so much, make a new skin and then your problems solved.

Do you think they should change fire rate on any guns? In the SW cartoons the super battle droid charged up and fired or was that in commando....

For a new weapon i would like a beat down option, it seems like i empty a clip and am so close to a kill... a shank or rifle hit would be nice, its not a very star wars thing, but i could atleast see a wookie doing it.

SWBF2 already has a sticky grenade..nothing new about that. A Knife? Wow... didn't see that coming.

There are some mod maps that introduce some nice weapons. Battlefront Xtreme did a nice job with the weapons. I like the idea of the scope on an axis for zoom in and out.

Before they add weapons and new devices to work with.. they should fix the shot register.

SWBF1 and 2 definitely could have used a melee attack.

Yeah they really need to make the fire rate lower, just like in the movies.
If you see the clones fiering they don't shoot like the have a machinegun, just one or 2 shots at a time.
But the dammage should be higher too then.

And the ammo must be unlimited, they need to make an overheating at every gun!

Helpful! 
^ I agree

I would also like a melee option. Be able to hit an oppenent with the butt of you gun, flamethrowers for ARC's or special unit, different grenade types, airstrikes would be awesome.

I agree, enemy's of the clones aren't humans so why hit them with the rear of the gun, just blast him.

Indeed Airstrikes would be awesome, or maybe better would be that a capitalship would use his powerfull gun to cause a mass explosion, at bf1 the snipers has something like this too with their recon droid!!!

I was hoping the recon droid would be more powerful when it self destructed, it was a bit of a let down, air strikes is an interesting idea... Maybe if u had a certain amount per battle you could use so u have to choose carefully when to use it.

What if u only had one air strike per battle, it could be like the bonuses u buy for the Galatic Conquest, so u really have to time precisely when to use it. Its true that it could own to easily so... i dunno really, i like the idea, but i think it'll kill to easily, but with only maybe one per battle, perhaps it could work.

ok here are some actually good weapons that maybe added(I"m talking about my other post about knifes and stuff) Well we should a kind of mine that you can throw into a corner and it starts to follow anything that passes by. It is like in UT2004. Of course some new equipment things like grapple hooks and a kind of system to bring extar forces from orbit for something.

It is cool but indeed you own your opponent too easy.
But maybe it should only be added to a map when one side has the advantage of more vehicles, or were they have created such a huge map with so many vehicles that it could be easely used for battle because there are still enough vehicles then after the bombardement

I dont think sticky grenades and knifes or darts would go down to well. Maybe sticky grenades, and back to what you said about the fusion cutter, if they gave it the ability to slice into its enemys as well as thier vehicals

I agree with the Melee idea. It should be like the Mass Effect melee, if they get too close your character will automatically knock them back if your using primary fire.

no, not automatically otherwise that'd drive u nuts, i would want to chose when to use my melee attack, not the game. What if you were just about to kill a sniper but then an enemy unit came across ur path and u then 'automatically melee attack it, then the sniper u were about to kill kills u?

It would be especially annoying online.

Melee - Yes Automatic Melee - No

I don't think the melee would be a good idea, ever played Gears of War.....I want the orbital strike to return, except have a new class to use it similar to a sniper, but it would be called a scout instead...and the sniper would play more of a sniper role. The scout would sprint longer and had small stealthy-like weapons, like the Bothan spy and the strike would be its anti-vehicle/infantry weapon.

yeah but they can't add that many more units otherwise you'll have too many, and besides whats wrong with melee? Yes i have played Gears of War but u can make melee good and useful.

Well it wouldn't matter if the melee was automatic or not, you still wouldn't kill the sniper because the guy that runs in front of you will block your shot.

Wait, are you familiar with the "Mass Effect style" melee? Because if you are, I'm surprised you would actually say that is annoying.

I think they should just have a simple melee attack button, maybe even like activating a combo with a cool view sort of like gears of war except not so disgusting
