Stupid 'Gansta' shooting stance

I have to ask, what moron thought this looked the least bit cool on the Unload skill? Is there at least a way for me to switch the stance back the the right and good looking way? As a PT, I am a walking tank, not some idiot gangsta that has no clue how to hold a weapon.


I just re activated my account, so wasn't here when this was first put in.

You use unload as a PT? Seriously...its a waste of heat/ammo.

I don't mind the new animation, but the old one was okey too.

It is incidentally useful when you are stuck at long range (i.e. behind a fire in huttball) and your other long range attacks (i.e. DFA) are on cooldown.

If you aren't using unload you are doing it wrong !

Unload with thermal override is a perfect way to vent heat,
Perfect against a sin/shadow when they use force shroud
Perfect against a marauder (If stun is down) For when they pop undying rage
Good for finishing targets that run away,
Good for starting a fight off (almost always starts burning if pyro)

I do agree with that OP though, I don't like that new animation at all but I would say that new SOUND is what really kills it for me. There is a delay from when you hit the unload button and when it starts going and now because the sound is also in delay sometimes I move or keep hitting it trying to make it work.

I would say the old animation looked really silly in how it looked like this little gun was about to rip your arm off but I do miss it. Please revert Thanks.

Yes, unload used when rooted, ect. But when or if I use it is not the issue, so pull your head out of the elitist kitty litter and focus on my OP.

The problem is, the Animation itself is doing two things at once, it half way keeps the old stance, with the left arm crooked under the right, like it should be but then you have the right had turned 90 degrees and totally voiding the left hand and its attempt to stabilize the weapon. Im sorry, but no 'gangsta' is going to do that because it looks stupid and no expert hand gun marksman is going to do that, because it IS stupid.

I mean, who ever animated the Troopers full auto with a Rifle has never seen a military man fire a rifle, but this takes that stupidity even further, they actually had the animation and stance right, then some numbskull in pants sagging to the ground comes along and changes it.

Derp.

Due to the channel time and heat, it's a free attack. Used in conjunction with TSO, you can actually attack AND vent heat with Unload. Next time just be quiet and let the adults talk.

The damage output is a waste, rapid shots is going to do the same amount of damage, if your using thermal sensor overide with unload to vent heat your wasting your TSO. Mercs use unload not powertechs, it does white dmg might throw the dot on the guy but so can rapid shots...You get knocked back and are rooted and want to use unload? Really? I think you just like the gansta look of it more then anything.

Rapid shots will never do the same damga as unload.

From my lvl 17 Powertech :
Rapid Shot : 108-149
Unload : 175-204 per second
It means that during 3s, 2 Rapid Shots will deal 216-298 while unload will deal 525-612. At this you add the fact that Rapid Shots have 10% less accuracy...

If you still believe unload is a waste then...
