When will the Bounty Hunter feel like a bounty hunter?

I love my bounty hunter. However my merc really feels like just another average hero, as in there is nothing that makes me feel like an actual Bounty hunter, aside from the class story, and possibly the graphical missile here and there.

From playing games such as SWG as a Bounty Hunter, or even Red Dead Redemption, doing the posted bounty's, I felt more like a bounty hunter in those games than this.

Any update on a Bounty hunter terminal/board? I would like to see something similar to SWG where you could just pick up bounty after bounty, while doing some form in "investigation" to the location of your target. I don't want to see it in the form of a daily mission where you can only do it once per day. It gets real boring time and again waiting for the occasional warzone, operation, flash point to pop, let alone the times when no guild mates are online, and would be a fun way to pass the time. I really enjoyed the bounty hunter track and catch system in SWG, using a crafted item to locate targets, it just felt right. For this game its been a long time since I really felt like a Bounty hunter. (since doing the class story i guess) but now at end game i just feel like another hired thug. Not someone who hunts live targets.

It would be real interesting to see a merger of SWG's bounty system and RDR, in the sense you can either eliminate or capture your bounty.

I like how the class plays, you feel like a bounty hunter using missiles and such, but its kinda superficial when you don't actually hunt targets.

Also I hate the graphic for mercenary's Unload, can you please change the graphic where you hold the pistols upright v. crossed over each other? Maybe perhaps to something like the charged attack that companion Temple uses? To me it just looks like I am trying to be not really gangsta....but sorta. its bad its a shared graphic with smugglers, its unpleasant to the eyes (imo) and I don't like it.

So I am not sure if my topic got sort of over shadowed by the announcement of the BH changes coming to 1.4, but I am surprised that no one either cares for a feature like this, or has their own opinion on the matter.

Anyone? I would like to see what other fellow BH'ers think/want out of their hunters!

I would put it into the suggestion box, but I feel, despite what "they" say, most of the stuff gets over looked.

I hear you, I kinda wish the classes had the versatility with weapons that WoW had, instead of being AC specific, it gets boring at times dealing with the same 1 type of weapon all the time. I get its meant to be a different game, but it also kinda sucks.

As a old SWG Bounty Hunter I would love to see a PvP Bounty board in this game. Would like to see a choice of weapons for BH aswell. Would add a bit more varity in the game.

I agree, more variety! it almost seems like they modeled the bounty hunter after Cad Bane instead of Boba Fett, with his dual pistols, When I got into the weekend beta I was thoroughly surprised that we couldn't use assault rifles aka carbines. I would LOVE to see some 'heavy' weapons added, I miss the lightning cannon! But more importantly give me a bounty board dang nabbit!

I second this for sure.. BH in SWG was awesome purely because you could hunt actual players as bounty. Kinda makes the class pointless if you can't do that.

Well lets all cross our fingers and hope the devs include it or a version of it in patch 1.5 as BH now is more like a Trooper then a BH.

The ability I was refering to is called "Burst" for Temple, which is a "charge" attack vs. channeled, however I like this graphic much, much better than unload's current graphic.
